The primary elections are bearing down on us. Trump seems to be poised to win the Republican nomination. It is a frightening possibility for me. I see him as a bully and a demagogue. It is frightening for many people but his followers see him as a messiah. They are committed to him. There is no turning them away. The question is whether he can take all the marbles in a general election. The likely Democratic nominee is Hillary and she is a badly damaged candidate herself. I think she would be preferable to Trump. My companion thinks the opposite.
