Republicans have been lobbying Trump to change his campaign persona into a "more presidential" one, to go by a script and stop saying incendiary things. In other words, they want Trump to pull a bigger con on the American public than he has been, deceiving voters into thinking he's not the sociopath he really is.

When we rhetorically hide our faces behind our hands when election results are obvious and say, "Where are the the winners? Who could they be?" then pull our hands away and say, "Peekaboo!!! What a surprise!!! What does this mean???"...it makes our viewers giggle with delight!
Earlier today I had an interesting interaction with a person who happened to be a Hillary Clinton supporter -- although this same dynamic could have occurred had the situation been reversed I think-- with me being the fan of HRC and her the Bernie person.

The race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders has become quite combative, making tonight's debate between them quite timely. As usual, PlanetPOV will be hosting a simultaneous live chat open to all members...the best way on The Planet to watch a debate!
