    He constantly comes so close to damning himself with his loose tongue. At some point he'll say something that just is one step too far.
    I'm waiting for him to declare war on someone via twitter.

      Bill Clinton's approval rating went up after he was impeached and after his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

      You can be pretty bad and still get away with it in the US.

      My guess is that if his polling figures start to show that he's dragging down the electability of Republicans in Congress something will come to light that will either cause his impeachment or force his resignation to avoid it. I suspect they'd rather like Pence in power anyway. The only variable is whether or not they think it'll cause a significant split within the party's base if they kick him out. I would say probably not, Trump's drawn a lot of people who don't usually vote towards him, so they're unlikely to present a long term problem once he's gone.

      he'll get caught with his fingers metaphorically in the till. putting his business into trusts to be run by family is a fig leaf, opportunities will arise and he wont be able to help himself take advantage. after its exposed, he'll face calls for impeachment but probably lose the re-election before they come to a head.

      I get the impression he's a puppet with experienced Republicans pulling the strings. He'll remain as long as they have control of him.

      He seems in good health,so the full 2 terms.The Democrats are dead in the water and rapidly becoming as electable as Labour.I fully expect a third party to appear and split the Democrat vote even further.Obama will be their last President for at least 3 or 4 terms.

      This is the party that won the majority of votes just two months ago

      There's been talk of a third party in the US for decades, without it coming to anything. The last third party candidate to win an electoral college vote was George Wallace in 1968 ... and he got 13% of the vote. Since then, it's been even more skewed to the two main parties, there's not a hope in hell of a third party emerging

      As opposed to the safety Clinton provided the US ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens?

      First US ambassador killed since 1979 under Clinton's watch. Yet people wanted that incompetent clown to be in charge of US safety?
      Not saying that HC would have been an ideal candidate either however doesn't take a lot of intelligence to see Donald as a political catastrophe.

      That was the choice the voters had, the catastrophe you've already witnessed/experienced or the one that might eventuate.

      They went with the one with no blood on their hands this election.
