Go vote for a mulsim in office and just like all the other countries see all the chaos this produces. So, you want violence in America ?



It's this type of BS rethoric that will discourage thinking voters from voting for Donald!

You aren't winning any converts,

I think Hillary will win the election.

She's liberal enough to satisfy most center-left democrats and just right enough to be able to attract some independents and Republicans that won't vote for Trump.

She's playing to that crowd also by denouncing Bernies plan for universal healthcare

The trouble is that there is no moderate in the GOP primary as the last two elections had, McCain and Romney.

Kasich is too weird.

And people don’t realize, other than the immigration ideas of Trump, he is a moderate.


Trump is a moderate who many in the GOP would accept like Romney and McCain. That may be the unsaid reason why he is really ahead.

Among all voters he is seen as 42% favorable.

link

Among just Republicans he is at 67% and on an uptick

link

With primary voters he is even higher and 73%

link

With a 4% spread he is 50/50 with Likely general election voters

link

It is the very liberal voters where he is killed.

I did not want to be 'that guy' and say that the HuffPo is being VERY creative with the numbers but..... they are compiling to make it look like he is a huge negative favorable...

In the real world it's still Clinton and Bush or Kasich


It's actually something like Clinton vs Rubio/Cruz, but that demographic is switching to Clinton/Sanders vs Rubio/Cruz. Bush is pretty much hanging on by the skin of his teeth at this point and Kaisch is a non-factor.


Rubio or Kasich would give Hillary a serious run for her money.

Cruz is toast in the general imo most sane people think he's a religious zealot

Plus, even if he DID try to change his tactics, he's supplied too much ammo for the left to hit him with during the general election.

Actually I just read that Cruz is polling better than Hillary in the national election polling.

Yeah, whatever. I guess your vote in the future will be set aside. The Constitution allows for people like you to have an opinion, be thankful you still have one.

Oh definitely. Even I'm considering making political compilation videos about each of these candidates, just to make sure casuals know who they're dealing with. So no, we definitely won't let him claim a change of heart if or when he wins the Republican nomination. He's burned all possible bridges with me.

What ammunition? I think you may have it backward. You are talking about a guy who is 'working' the biggest deal of his life. He is giving people soundbites to hang themselves with. Hillary tried to discuss sexism and BAM! Suddenly Bill is replaced almost entirely by his daughter. That was no mistake.

Sanders? I predict his trip to Central/South America will be brought up very,very soon where he was backing Leftist socialist rebels who were chanting for death to America. There is no need yet because he has not attacked the Trump camp.

No ads in Iowa trashing him. Why? The candidates know the backlash and that he will not ride quietly into the night.

The thing is, while Trump might be a moderate in every other area, he's way too extreme in immigration and minorities don't see him favorably at all despite what the world net daily polls say.

The 2012 election sent a message to Republicans that they needed to be more moderate when it came to immigration issues and when it came to dealing with minorities.

This election they have doubled down hard on their anti immigration rhetoric...don't be surprised when Hillary takes the White House

That would be odd. A complete change of tactics to the exact opposite of what he's been shoveling for the last year. Lol.

Not just that he would be pummeled as a flip flopper, which is OK to his supporters but not many others that want a clear idea where one stands.

I can agree with that, THINK FOR YOURSELF use your own opinions.

That's the same information I supplied in the OP. The only difference here is that his favorability rating at Rueters is -15% instead of the -20% the OP suggested. That is still god awful though, but it really isn't much different numbers wise.


Among just Republicans he is at 67% and on an uptick

link


No one is arguing that he has a large Republican support base. This thread is about his polling outside the Republican base.


With primary voters he is even higher and 73%

link


Again, no one is disputing his Republican support.


With a 4% spread he is 50/50 with Likely general election voters

link


You may want to redo your math there. The spread for this graph is 9.4% negative favorability.


It is the very liberal voters where he is killed.

I did not want to be 'that guy' and say that the HuffPo is being VERY creative with the numbers but..... they are compiling to make it look like he is a huge negative favorable...


Well besides the erroneous data about Republican support (since again that was never in dispute), you seem to have misinterpreted the graphs you posted.

Muslin customs and society is soooooo different than those of American standards. Don't play the immigration and minorities card. We have enough people in this country as it is. OVERWHELMING it will only make it worse. Oh and by the way. I don't agree with the WALL. In the past it has ALWAYS FAILED. Take a look at other countries. This issue I disagree with trump, but how can a nation do BOTH. Let some in at times and NOT let some in at times. A GATE.
