    I'm not talking percent, the democrats have had 90% for ages. Obama had huge turnouts in the black and youth vote which propelled him to the wins. That's not going to happen this year. I do think Republican turnout will be off unless Hillary gets the nomination, then it will be huge.

    Hispanic vote is more important than ever, and Hillary will do exceedingly well with that growing bloc of voters thanks to Trump et al. I think any lack of enthusiasm by Dem voters certainly will be offset -- and then some -- by disgruntled Republicans. (We've seen evidence of such on these boards.) Certainly there will be an anti-Hillary turnout for the GOP, but I believe it will be less than you predict.

    The key to the race will be the Dems getting out their voters. If they do that, they win.

    I don't think you have any idea of the Hillary backlash coming. Can't remember a candidate so hated. She runs, Dems lose no matter who the opponent is as the Republican turnout will dwarf the Dems who already do not like Hillary and will not turn out for her. Independents will stay home as they will like neither. Hispanic vote is still miniscule. Biden is the Dems only hope.

    The current pandering for black votes from all canidates sicken me.

    All of a sudden the black vote means something. It should have ment something 3 months ago.

    If a candidate wanted the black vote, a plan or at the least a basic roadmap should have already been proposed.

    There are areas of America that are hurting, it discusses me to hear what a canidate will do for these areas when they all of a sudden need their vote.

    With that said, I can see where some black voters are left without a true canidate to get behind.

    Doesn't deserve black vote? Hell, the lady doesn't deserve her next breath. She's evil and corrupt. She's a cancer to everything or anything that comes into contact with her. She's the Devil Incarnate, the spawn of Satan. She's a pathological liar and a mass murderer. ISIS doesn't hold a candle to the manifestation of evil that is HRC. Whatever darkness there is in the world, this female antichrist is the cause.

    I don't typically get caught up in politics, but for some reason this election is like a train wreck to me...I can't stop watching...the 24 hour news cycle makes our already terrible candidate choices look like our country is spiraling out of control.

    Miniscule? Hardly.

    "Latinos will make up 13 percent of all eligible voters in 2016, a 2 percent increase from 2012. And the numbers are much higher in some states. In Florida, for example, the share of eligible voters who are Latino will increase from 17.1 percent in 2012 to 20.2 percent in 2016. In Nevada, the 2012 to 2016 Latino eligible voter increase is 15.9 percent to 18.8 percent. Projections show that Latino eligible voters could reach 28.5 million nationwide in 2016."

    Just because you guys hate her in an extra-special way, like you hate her super-duper really really, it doesn't really mean anything. You guys hate everyone not you, the demographics of the county are not gonna change, and the democratic candidate will win this year. Have fun with this election while you can, I really think Trump is gonna fracture and destroy the Republican party.

    As much as I hate to say it, Madam President will become reality. It pains me to accept that fate.

    However, I believe she will be a better president than the current one. We have that going for us.

    If anyone in here votes for Hillary Clinton you need to sue your brain for non support.

    You talking about someone else hating a candidate is classic but of course you can't see it. Your queen love for her blinds you to what's happening. Better keep Joe on speed dial.

    I'm having a blast this election and will be having even more fun come November.
