    Trump and Bannon are working toward a similar goal in my opinion and I view this as a "good cop bad cop" sort of play...Bannon holds the base...the polls show Moore to win so Trump can come out and try and widen his Republican base trying to appear to support the more status quo candidate and then at the last minute admit he could have been wrong and would support Moore if he won the primary...I'm not buying it but I'm a skeptic and haven't seen any talking heads submitting such a crazy premise so perhaps I'm wrong?

    yes - you re right - thanks for catching that.

    Yeah, that's what I saw: Trump having it both ways, unable to lose.

    I'm actually with you here. This was on my mind before the election, when watching Trump's crazy speech for Strange. Then it was confirmed last night watching Bannon and Moore give their speeches.

    Yeah, either way - Trump wins.

    If you remember Trump and Bannon forced the Democrats, via Hillary, to waste a record $2Billon in campaign funds and they also made the media look stupid with their propaganda predictions of a Hillary victory. If Trump and Bannon separate the target, they can double that damage, especially with Bannon having his own media weapons once again.

    Face it, the left is not that bright, which is why they need emotional manipulation and fake news; cheat to win. Trump uses Twitter as the dog whistle to lead the media to predictable responses, that make them sound so petty. They can;t address issue, so he gives them an out with name calling. They gladly go there and Trump deals with the real business of the country without distractions.
    You left out the fact it was the lowest voter turnout in years, that goes a long way in helping Trump. Will we have record low turnout 2018, and 2020, lets hope not. If the Dems come up with a black canidate, now that would be interesting
