Go figure! He's been a life long Democrat before he decided to run, name call, cut and slash his way into being a GOP candidate.

Usually it's Hillary "is the same" as Trump, not the other way around. I think if someone tried to do that amongst Trump supporters, such a person would either be shot at or beaten up, while Liberals (especially Bernie or Bust types) would cite all sorts of references that point to Hillary being a Republican, many of them come from Republican sources. Then again I say this country has a problem when it comes to weeding out propaganda.

But still, Trump "sounding like a Democrat" doesn't make me feel any better about him.

I agree. Startling to see, but some polls now show Trump leading Clinton by 3 points. IMO, as much as I personally have no problem with Clinton and think many of her issues are overblown, she is a weak candidate.

Yeah, but that is also what they said about Romney vs Obama.

The difference between Romney vs. Obama election and this one is the recent history problems of the incumbent party (Dem or Rep) getting enough votes to elect a new president of their party after 8 years of their person in power. That's where we see the "third term" being thrown around as a negative and even though Obama is enjoying his highest poll numbers right now. Support for Clinton does not necessarily transfer from Obama's poll numbers, but we'll see.

Actually, I think the best thing for Hillary to do is to take either Warren or Sanders as her running mate. I would think that doing so would secure at least some portion of the Sanders voters. Plus I think Sanders could also use that to his advantage if he plays his cards right.

I agree with either could result in a plus.
