And that's literally the only evidence that Trump supporters ever present. Anecdotal.


You must have an axe to grind or else have been cave-dwelling for the past 6 months. I've seen your thread activity in denying reality. The support for Donald Trump from your average American citizen is overwhelming. I'm not talking about "fringe elements", I'm talking about regular people. He strikes a chord with the heart of America. Those who would gleefully watch the destruction of this country would assassinate Trump the first chance they got. That, my friend, is the only thing that would deter Mr. Trump from being our next President.


Well I see you've got yourself thoroughly convinced of this, but don't come complaining to me when Trump gets his ass handed to him because you refused to look at evidence outside of your echo chamber.

I do like your touch about me denying reality when I'm the one relying on hard data and you are just relying on your gut instinct, echo chamber confirmation, and anecdotes.

Spending little money on campaigns doesn't mean he isn't campaigning.

The world sure has changed a lot since 1988... that was 18 years ago. At any rate, Trump pisses a lot of people off by acting so smug and condescending. He gets upset and wants to "fire" anyone (even if they don't work for him) if his rally doesn't seem to be going his way.

To me, he doesn't seem to have the UNDERSTANDING of where we are at in the year 2016. Can't teach an old dog new tricks, he's a hater and a loose cannon.

He is waiting. Waiting for the right moment. If you have watched, the DNC tried to attack and then backfired. He responded with a tweet and Hillary went back into hiding behind PedoBill. Cruz tried, and now, if asked, Cruz will not discuss Trump. Not because he is not relevant, because they are scared.

Slowly he is releasing many good, to the point, campaign videos and radio announcements. Not attacks. Talking about his plans.

It's ok though.

I don't care about attacks against Trump. That is just petty electioneering.

Sorry, but according to the latest Monmouth polling.

www.politico.com...



Slightly more than half—52 percent—said they backed Clinton, while 37 percent opted for Sanders, the first time that her advantage has been less than 20 points. In the university's December survey, Clinton held a substantially larger 33-point advantage over Sanders—59 percent to 26 percent. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley polled well within the margin of error, at 2 percent.
Asked who would have a better shot against Trump, 44 percent said Clinton would, while only 16 percent said the Vermont senator would have more of a chance. Meanwhile, 35 percent said they would have about an equal opportunity. In the case of Ted Cruz, 39 percent said Clinton would do better, compared to 17 percent for Sanders and 37 percent for both. Asked who would do better against Marco Rubio, 39 percent said Clinton would, 37 percent said they would have an equal shot and just 17 percent said Sanders would.
Sanders and his campaign have frequently pointed to past polls showing them performing better against Trump than Clinton to emphasize the point of electability. In contrast to the question posed in this poll, those questions have typically presented respondents with head-to-head matchups (for example, Sanders vs. Trump, Clinton vs. Trump) rather than asking which candidate would have a better shot at beating a given candidate.

"Sorry" right back at you!

Your poll was conducted only among Democratc and/or Democratic leaning voters.

I think everybody knows Hillary is currently leading among Democrats, so that's not news.

I'm talking about national polls regarding a matchup of the Democratic candidates against Trump, across all party lines.

You know, the same way we vote come November.

Nobody beats Trump by a larger margin than Bernie Sanders in a national poll of eligible voters.

And you know it!

Trump has no chance if he is against Sanders.

Trump will win if he is against Clinton.

Pretty simple.


Unless this country truly is done for, Sanders is the Democrats' Barry Goldwater.

It's not about "evil socialist," it's about Americans not being socialist, evil or otherwise.

I hope your right. A landslide victory for a 'non-politician' just might wake up our elected officials and show them that their jobs are not safe any longer and that Americans are not putting up with their crap anymore.


LOL You say that until he fills his Cabinet with career politicians, adds the same bankers & CFR strategists as his advisers, and appoints Washington insiders to the other posts. Oh I'm sorry, has he said who he'd appoint to any of those positions yet?

Thankfully, he'd get crushed in the general election so we won't have to worry about any of that.


No and neither has any other candidate, so what's your point?

IMO, The one and only thing you got right in your OP is the fact that America is angry.

Both, the Trump & Sanders campaigns are clear reflections of that fact.

While Americans are indeed angry, we're NOT mean or vindictive and Trump is the personification of both.

They say one of the biggest mistakes someone can make, is to underestimate their opponent and based on your post in this thread regarding the Sanders campaign, it's clear that you're doing just that.

Nobody, I repeat "NOBODY," beats Trump by bigger margins in any poll than Sanders!

There's nothing I'd like to see more than a matchup between Trump & Sanders.






The only one who continues to be under-estimated here is Donald Trump. He's not a Socialist lifetime politician like Sanders who has really nothing to offer unless you hate cops. That's where his anger is directed, as the spittle flies.


Yeah well, we'll see come Election Day.

I have a funny feeling that after the voting is done, you're gonna be walking around in a daze repeating your screen name over and over again, like "Rainman."

Did you even read what I responded to? There's a thing called "context", and my "point" was implied through context.

How is he going to "wake up our elected officials and show them that their jobs are not safe any longer" (which is what I responded to) if those same career politicians wind up in his Cabinet, as his advisors, and appointed to other positions in his administration?

Trump supporters are like Trump.

LOUD

That's the only reason why it seems like there's so much support for Trump. They answer those polls (most of us just hang up, we're busy and don't care). These folks post incessantly on Facebook and Twitter. They're rabid with Donald-mania.

Trump isn't as popular as the media makes it seem, and Sanders is more popular than the media makes it seem. The media knows Donald is controversial, and he grabs people's attentions. He gets people to keep watching with sick fascination, wondering how much further past the line of normal decorum Trump will stray...

Conservatives always think America is shifting their direction, despite the demographics and polls/studies showing America is moving more to the left every day. It's inevitable, and it's the loosing team. The GOP/conservative ship is sinking, and the Republicans need to re-brand themselves or become a party of kooky extremists bearing the brunt of jokes.

All my conservative friends thought Romney was going to win -- it wasn't even a close race. The electoral college is LOCKED for the Democrats in 2016. The Democrats will have to TRY and loose this election. Obama knew he was a shoe-in in 2012. Why do you think he was so confident? Why do you think Hillary looks so confident?

The Democrats start out with something like 246 out of the needed 270 electoral votes before even the first person's vote is cast. They need just 24 electoral votes to snag another POTUS win. The GOP simply cannot win this election unless the Democrats do something intentional to loose it.

Sorry Trump...go home, your drunk (on your own bad cologne).

Palin already lost the election for McCain, Trump doesn't need help losing the election he is doing that all by himself she will just speed it up.

Yeah, it's like a real live episode of Dumb & Dumber!

The only people on this planet who think that gaining the endorsement of a half-wit, half-term governor who struggles with the English language every time she opens her mouth, would be Trump & Cruz.

You know you're in really bad shape when your top two contenders are competing for the endorsement of a dumbass like Palin.

I'd just bet that an endorsement from SpongeBob SquarePants would actually produce more votes than that of Sarah "WordSalad" Palin.

Neither Hillary nor Bernie will bring the high black voter turnout that pushed Obama into office twice nor get 93% of the black vote like Obama did on 2012. I don't think she can count on winning the female voter turnout either, with all of Bill's well known escapades out there.
