The bolded is the key word though right? The Republican party needs an overhaul to be viable in Presidential elections. A 400 EV walloping is just what the doctor ordered to get the party moving in that direction. I agree that a robust debate between two parties offering viable, productive plans is where we want to get to... but our media treating Trump's inane ranting and shallow sloganeering as if it was anything but... just to "have a close game" doesn't help at all. They serve us all much better by making a fool of him for taking ridiculous positions and not having any coherent polies. That way the next person who runs may do a better job of having actual plans.
