For those of you unfamiliar with NJ politics when it involves the NJ Supreme court: The Court is so damn partisan, it will simply ignore or re-write laws at will. One of the more infamous cases was the re-election of Senator Robert Torricelli. A solid 'party man', Torricelli was cruising to an easy victory, which is expected in a one party state such as NJ.
However, 'The Torch' (as he was called) got caught breaking campaign finance rules (I will spare the readers here the arcane details). The media firestorm erupted so damaged Torch, he found himself way behind in the polls. So far behind that the leadership of the Democratic party decided he had to be replaced.
The problem was that State Law was VERY clear on the matter. The window of opportunity to replace a candidate (post primary) had already passed. The Dems were stuck with old Torchie. So the matter was taken to NJ Supreme court which duly ruled for the political party it served: Via one of the most convoluted court opinions ever, the law was over-ridden. The leadership grabbed a bolt cutter and a couple crow bars, opened the crypt of the former Senator, Frank Lautenberg, dusted him off, and had him on the ballot in time for the election. Lautenberg, even though pulling a 'Weekend at Bernie's', won the election.
A while back, I stated Hillary would not be the nominee. I haven't brought myself yet to say I was wrong. Honestly, I still think she may not make it to the election. The MSM can't hide her crap health and toxic sludge keeps oozing from the continuous flow of email leaks.
I think the elites of the party misjudged just how bad her health is. Frankly, I don't think they care how evil and corrupt she is (she is one of them). Hillary it has been rumored, has used cocaine extensively. Her heavy drinking is well known. I have a sibling who works in the medical field (PhD level) and deals with aging issues extensively. Per my sibling: Hard amphetamine use will age the body. The effects, even if the person stopped using, will generally start showing up in a person's later 40s. Essentially a person who is pushing 60 can in fact have an 80 year old body. Long term neurological damage also becomes far more apparent as the person gets on in years.
So lets say by the end of September, Hillary is looking like a lost cause. Does she get replaced? Is a Torricelli on the Federal level even possible? If Joe Biden was on the ballot, would Trump win?
Only the latter I have a firm opinion on: Trump would lose because Biden would be acceptable to blue collar white guys and black men. He isn't loved, but unlike Hillary, he isn't hated.
