2) There's no path to the White House for him. Support in Iowa? No way. Support in NH? A smidge. South Carolina? None. Florida? Yes, some. What does that look like? Right, Rudy's path to the WH (i.e., all-in on Florida).

3) Donors fleeing. Jeb entering the race was not a good thing for CC.

4) Lots of baggage - Romney people vetted him and said "no way" (Halpern).

5) At this point, he wouldn't even carry his own state against Hillary.
Good analysis. I would just add that anyone not named Bush or Rubio depending on a win in Florida is up against it.

according to most on the last election they had the wrong favorite as well, yet when they counted the votes the favorite got the money.

i find election odds more reliable than pollster's.

There's a saying that there's really only two campaign slogans:

1. It's time for a change.

2. You've never had it so good.

We're not at war, and, while the economy isn't great, it's not that bad. With that said, I'd bet on "2."

She starts with 48% of the vote. It's not a huge leap.

A repub winning is almost an impossibility

That's assuming the Dem base turns out. They didn't in 2014, and the GOP took the Congress.

She has the press. Here's a sample of an email on her private server. Note the expressed relationship with a press member

sportsbook has Hillary at +110
and Democrat at -160


which seems strange as the next Dems listed are
Bernie Sanders +3000
Elizabeth Warren +6000
Joe Biden +7500
Al Gore +10000

I think by the tie enough of her illegal emails get released, enough level-headed democrats (oxymoron?) will be disgusted enough by her to ether not vote or look at repubs. That 48% will fall, IMHO, to under 40.

When reasonable people look at her records, they will have to realize that this is not an honest of good person.
