From the AP: Billionaire businessman Donald Trump has reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president. Trump, the only remaining GOP candidate left in the race, will go on to accept the nomination at the party's national convention in Cleveland.

Should we start panicking now?

Luckily, GOP delegates are not bound ti Trump, or anyone for that matter; meaning Trump won the delegates, but the delegates can choose who they think could better run the country (or better run against Hilary)

Playing Devil's Advocate: Trump will be triumphant in fixing the country and getting our economy back on track or not. Clinton will be more of the same as Obama, going on grand apology tours, spending money we don't have, and if something goes wrong,"What difference does it make" or not. There is just no way to know, but how they present themselves for the next few months and give us a real idea behind their campaigns. Nobody knows, just take a look throughout the history of the election in this country, candidates have put themselves out there and we as per the founding fathers wishes vote on them. Hopefully we vote based on how well they may do the job that is granted to them by the voters, who put their trust in them. Not voting on them because of gender, race, etc. That is a bad and awful way to vote. Also, another thing to do is vote on their character, remember past actions are what they themselves have put out there, not us, them. For now though, it's a wait and see kind of thing.

@addy0315 See, this is a complete misconception based on conservative media. Our country does not need "fixed" and our economy is back on track and almost to the point pre-2008-recession. Our unemployment is at it's lowest point and we keep making jobs every month. Our economy has been on an upward climb since Obama has been in office. Obama didn't get the job because he was black, he was elected because he was the best choice. To think Trump can compare to Obama when it comes to running a country, well as you said "take a look throughout the history" of Trump's business ventures and you will see that he will run this country into the ground, sell it to China for a profit and laugh all the way to the bank.

I'd say Trump is more of a wild card that Hillary. He's flip-flopped on a LOT more issues.

The media is going to act like the race is close but that's only for ratings. There is zero chance Trump will will. In this day and age it is the nominee who has the latino vote who will win and Trump screwed the pooch there. Better get used to the term Madam President.

I disagree on Clinton being guaranteed the win. There are a lot of people who seriously dislike/distrust one, the other, or both. Just on Clinton you have the email scandal, some questionable decisions/supporting of things in her political career, and many feel she is in big business pocket. Add in the fact that as much as some people dislike trump for his speeches/attitude, it's that same aggression/non-pc attitude that gave him the votes/power to steam roll right over the republican party and the candidates they supported.

@markust123 Agreed on the Latino vote, I checked out a story on NPR about just that. It will be interesting for states such as NV and FL going Blue because of that vote, however the scary thing is some states that are typically Blue may go Red this time because of the opposite with white middle class that for some reason love the Trump. TV/The Media show has prepped us a show fellas and ladies. Hang on, we are in for a wild 6 month ride!

They will talk about national polls. They will treat that as important. Too bad the national vote means nothing. Obama won 2012 51.1% to 47.2%, which seems close. Obama won the electoral vote 332 to 206. Not even fucking close.

This is so true. I remember when Obama was elected. The polls in my state hadn't even closed and they had already announced him as the next president.

You should probably only panic if you don't want Hillary to be president. We now are going to get 5 months of Trump supporters "articulating" their views and a few debates where he gets to call her names and just repeatedly say how much smarter and richer and gooder he is. Should be pretty hilarious.
