It was a simpler, more innocent time.
Back in the summer of 2015 the GOPLifer blog laughed off the threat of a Donald Trump nomination with a lighthearted wager. Commenters posted a date when they estimated Trump’s polling numbers would drop below the minuscule threshold of the race’s also-rans.
Now Trump is the nominee, Chris Ladd is no longer a ‘Lifer,’ and this campaign isn’t funny anymore. Time to clear the table and pay up.
By my count there were eight estimates beyond the date of the convention. Regardless what happens from here it seems like they should all qualify as winners.

It’s worth a free Amazon ebook of The Politics of Crazy, the book that will change your life.
And, dirty little secret, it’s really just a gift code so you can use it for any of the fine products available there.
Let me know if I’ve missed someone. Congrats to the winners.
