2. Voting has started. No going back now.

Impossible to update ballots in many states.

18. I don't think so, the ballots had to be sent overseas and there is lots of early voting

I know that Vermont moved up its primary for Governor and other offices to August because the September date used in the past would not comply with law on when those ballots need to be done. This might imply that no state could change the ballot in October.

Not to mention, there is likely no way the party could disqualify its candidate and make him step down ... and no one has ever called Trump "noble". (Though I can not imagine ANY candidate - not totally ill - stepping down after winning for the good of the party. Not to mention, they would have to believe someone could do better than they could.)

4. He won't drop out. He wouldn't consider saying what he did as being wrong

According to him, someone always does something that makes his indiscretions PALE in comparison so he should get a pass.

We mere mortals just don't understand.

12. I apologize if anyone was offended." doesn't mean he's sorry he said it or he realizes it was wrong

He's just issuing an insulting placation.

13. He apologized, and said Bill Clinton has said worse to him about women... In the apology.

Thus proving your point.

“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close,” he said. “I apologize if anyone was offended.”

Screenwriters across the world are scribbling scripts, right now.

I don't think so. He's dead, Jim.

8. No.

Hillary wants to have this wrapped up in early voting in swing states this month.

Trump isn't going anyplace, other than down in the polls at this point in the election.

9. Mitt was done in by the bartender catching the 47% comment

This tape was probably leaked by a production person who grabbed it for later use.

10. All according to the state laws

There is a way for the repub's to replace him. But some states it would be almost impossible. Each state would have to agree to change or add the person running. Along with early voting. I'm sure any vote for him would be void if he dropped out.

15. Nope ... we have a month to ask every elected GOP member to denounce him ...

... or agree with his comment!!!!

That should be just enough time to destroy them all.

20. Is this the biggest shoe to drop on Trump?

If this is being dropped on the 7th before the debate, it might not be. This is makes "47%" look tame.

I just read a CNN article that was published in August and it indicated that there wasn't enough time to do it, and that was in August, and a lot of the deadlines passed after Labor Day.

34. It's not going to go away or get better with time.

It will be just as damaging to him on Election Day (which is just about here to a lot of people) as it is today.

My only concern is whether he sticks to Republicans for elections to come.
