Most of the protesters have a limited education and aren't capable of articulating their reasons for protesting.

Most of them are either college students or college aged people. You know, people filled with ideas on how the world works, or at least, should work yet have no practical applications to apply their line of thinking towards. There is a saying in politics that if you are 20 and not liberal you have no faith in humanity and if you are 40 and not conservative, you don't have any clue how the world works. The only political rally I attended was in Waukesha, WI when I was in college in 2000 to see Al Gore Speak, well, I wasn't there to see Gore, I wanted to see Bon Jovi, and was escorted out by police merely because I wore a Bush/Cheney button. I don't know how to compare some of the things I see people pull at some rallies on TV, with my experience. It seems people today are being given a lot more leeway than I was

A reporter was interviewing protesters in OH and
most either didn't know what they were protesting,
or had a very vague idea. All were young, all
were having fun, all seemed like college aged air
heads.

The media should go back to reporting news and not try to be Nostradamus.

Possibly just another mistaken prediction, but this article suggests Trump doesn't have enough liquidity to run in the general election, in part because he already alienated many big donors. That's even if his smaller donors pony up.

He's already said he'll run on RNC money, not
superpacs. No I don't have fricking source, he
said it on one of the Sunday shows.

The RNC ... is mostly a shell and raises relatively little for its presidential candidate outside of that candidate’s own war chest and supportive PACs.

Another point the article makes, is even if the big donors come around, because Trump is a self-described 10 billionaire, they aren't going to put in money that exceeds what Trump himself will risk on himself, and apparently he hasn't spent very much comparatively.

In a strange way, this could help Trump.

If he had a large war chest, he could flap his mouth ad infinitum on the tube, and say something - a LOT of things - where he'd hang himself.

With a limited budget, he'd be in less flap-mouth danger. It's sort of a reputation-protective Golden muzzle.
