Her supporters…JUST. DON’T. CARE.

Very true….same as Trump’s.
Will the supporters (average folks…) still be with her if she’s indicted? Like you said, they probably will. That’s the question. But IMO, no way establishment Dems, and I mean that to be Party officials, support her if indicted. They’ll toss her over the side. Again, this is just one Repub’s opinion. It’s certainly worthy of discussion.

Please tell me that GeorgiaPol will be covering the awesome convergence of Trump/Palin? The synergy of it is…well…truly mind-numbing. This is your front-runner, after all.

“mind-numbing” being the operative hyphenated word. Maybe Trump traded her endorsement for a promise of being ambassador to the Republic of Maldives or something.

Small ambassadorship? What else might have been promised? Position-wise? RNC Chief? I dunno…

Re: Covering Trump Palin. Yes…..it’s glorious fodder and good click bait. And in all honestly, something we struggle with here (and at the old place). We are dedicated to covering state politics of Georgia. We collect a wide range of folks in the community that are thus very politically aware. And this is a Presidential season, where Presidential politics consumes the news cycles – and often the attention of our readers, even though national coverage isn’t what we do. So, from time to time we’ll have a post or three about the Presidential campaign. This gives our readers/commenters some time… Read more »

If this becomes a Trump/Cruz vs Sanders could we see a third party run by Bloomberg? Establishment from both sides vs the populist movement?

Well I heard Mullis/Deffenbaugh/ and Tarvin on the local radio this morning. Assault Gun bill DOA. Casino — Mullis said prior that was going nowhere ( http://www.northwestgeorgianews.com/rome/news/local/general-assembly-to-open-monday-nw-ga-leaders-discuss-education/article_258a3d7e-b76e-11e5-bee6-0f3369c25206.html )but I heard a little traction in his voice this morning. Explaining that this has been through a long study process and even if it when to a vote it would take a 3/4 vote, then voter aproval, then local community aproval. Thats a little contrast from the interview above. Let’s hope it goes to a vote!
