All tagged presidential election
Donald Trump has been called many things during this presidential election season: racist, sexist, bigot, hothead, narcissist, philanderer, and a loser. You can add "scam artist" to that list as well. Back in 2000, Trump told Fortune Magazine: "It’s very possible that I could be the first presidential candidate to run and make money on it." If he had that mentality with his failed 2000 campaign, what would prevent him from adopting that same attitude with his current presidential bid?
Now that Trump has become the presumptive Republican presidential nominee (flabbergasting as that may be), all focus is shifting to a Trump-versus-Clinton showdown. Almost every metric for predicting the results of the general election indicate that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide. Even at the outset, states that are polling in Clinton's favor already secure her victory over Trump, garnering 30 more electoral votes than the 270 needed to win the Presidency. Polling also shows Clinton defeats Trump 47% to 40% in terms of overall popular votes.
