    PROSM. We live in the 21st century - religion is something which should definitely not be forced onto people like this.
    We seem to be moving backwards instead of forwards.

    I'd want to know where the voters who leave go. I can't see Tories sucking up any further votes from us, the Lib Dems and UKIP aren't exactly resurging. The only damage is surely going to be Scotland where it's mostly already done.

    The lib dems and ukip are actually, you also get shifts from those parties to the tories, and tory to lib dem

    I feel that's the case as well sometimes.

    All we can do is promote tolerance and respect wherever possible.

    I agree - I just hope there is a peaceful way to combat religous extremism.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. Since the GE, the Lib Dems have made the most gains and received the most votes in by-elections. You could also potentially lose some votes to the Greens giving the mess you're in.

    Holy ****!

    If Trump can't reach 1200 (though he probably will now since the states ahead are fairly friendly to him), we might actually see a Kasich nomination if Cruz and Rubio endorse him in the second round.

    I loved GCSE English. The only subject where you can talk so much BS about everything and still get an A*.

    He needs less than 40% of the remaining delegates to secure the nomination. I would presume it's pretty much in the bag for him now. Even if it reaches the second round, Rubio might push a few people in Kasich's way but I'm not sure Cruz's supporters would go with Kasich over Trump despite the mudslinging.

    A quick calculation suggests there are 502 delegates available. Trump needs 280 to be the outright winner but yeah, if we assume 1200 is enough (probably even 1150) then 40% of remaining delegates is about enough.

    With two candidates forcing a winner takes all battle in every remaining state and California holding ~34% of remaining delegates i'd say that Calafornia probably pretty much entirely decides whether Trump reaches the line.
