If Trump is the Republican candidate then the Democrats can select Barney the Dinosaur as our nominee and we will still win.
The demographics in this country are changing and that terrifies the Republican base. Trump's theatrics bode well for the white base of the Republican party who is terrified that "our country is being taken away," but we would be foolish to believe that he could say that garbage as the Republican nominee and actually win a national election.
The 2016 race is pretty much over already anyway. The safely blue states almost equal the 270 electoral college votes needed for the Democratic nominee to win the election and their path to victory, whoever the Democratic nominee is, is going to be far easier than that of the Republican nominee. We shouldn't spike the football now, but take one look at the electoral college map and you will be able to see what I'm talking about. The numbers don't add up for the Republicans in the electoral college regardless of who they put up as a nominee.
Republicans will likely hold on to the House because of the gerrymandered districts they were able to push through after the 2010 census, but the Republicans will never win a national election if they continue down the destructive path they have set out for themselves.
My hope of all hopes is that Trump continues to take the Republicans down this destructive path; I hope he is the Republican nominee; I hope he picks Sarah Palin as his running mate; and I hope he continues to ramp up his xenophobic and racist comments that will be used as a 1,000 pound weight that we democrats can tie around every single down ticket Republican that will be forced to line up behind him in the 2016 elections.
