I see the appeal of Trump , but how can anyone come close to actually believing anything he says ,or his integrity, or his desire to help the peasants ?

Having said that, I would take him over Rubio,cruz but not Paul or Carson.

He appears to be getting a little more politically presentable from his start , not sure if he is doing it for the campaign strategy or he is making back room deals? Or the likely both scenerios?

He scares me the most quite frankly of all the candidates. I hate to say it, but he scares me more than even the Evil Witch on the other side . He has the characteristics and ego to go full tyrant on us.

With Hillary she will rob steal and cheat us out of our money like the rest. IMO Trump has that same potential but he could go full retard and seek revenge on all the middleclass once he gets in office and starts to get negative review. I can see him saying that he knows best for the middleclass and go full dictator on us.

Having said that I just can't get myself to ever support Hillary and would be willing to take a risk with trump over her in that 50 percent chance he might be sincere.

I also think that the GOP will try to fight the Donalds popularity by changing their decade old motto from "Vote for the lesser evil" to "Vote for the Known evil"

2016 is starting with some serious Doom Porn between the gas, elections,markets, .....

Latest CNN poll has him winning 37% to 26% among likely Caucus voters, not just republicans.


Trump leads Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who is in second place in the GOP race, among likely Republican caucus-goers, 37% to 26%. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, is in third at 14%, the only other Republican in double digits. Ben Carson failed to register half of Rubio's support and is in fourth place at 6%.


This is what this thread is about and it is showing momentum.

Now read this article, and the establishment is realizing the lesser of two evils and it is not Cruz.

www.washingtonpost.com... 5_story.html




But Tim Pawlenty, a former Minnesota governor and a 2012 presidential candidate, said that “the light bulb has gone on for a lot of people, and it wasn’t on a couple of months ago,” that Trump might be the nominee.

“Even though he’s a billionaire from New York, he sounds and looks like somebody you’d meet in the heartland who’s ticked off about the economy and government, and he projects the strength that he’d actually do something about it,” Pawlenty said. “He doesn’t look and sound like all the other politicians who yap and yap and don’t get anything done.”

Some in the party have gone to talk to Trump, hoping that he will remember them and their ideas if he wins.

“It’s our job to nurture the candidates, to bring them into the fold, including Trump,” said Arthur Laffer, a famed conservative economist who met with Trump in the fall. Laffer said he has met with Cruz, too.

Asked whether he would be willing to serve in a Trump administration, Laffer said, “I’m 75. If a Republican were to win, I’d love to have the role I had with President Reagan, advising when I can on economics.”

'Strongest performance' suggests he will get more than 50% consistently. I don't think that's going to happen. More likely we are going to see a lot of proportioned delegates in the first 2 weeks before they go to 'winner take all'.

It wasn't until we started adopting the idea that we had to be more like the rest of the world that we started our financial and moral decline.


So its the rest of the world responsible for your financial decline? sure its not got anything to do with a culture of greed and a corrupt banking system that the government's in bed with.

And your solution to this problem?

"Lets get the greediest guy we can find to be the next president"




Correct me if I am wrong here but I'll swear I remember the British banks were the institutions caught red handed fixing Libor interest rates. Were they not the ringleaders of that financial criminal enterprise?

As a fact, the British Empire was plundering the rest of the world long, long before the US ever took the lead as the worlds lead plunderer.

Have a source for that? The latest CNN released poll show 37% compared to 26% for Cruz, but it is specific in that it is only likely Republican voters.


BASED ON INTERVIEWS WITH 266 REPUBLICAN LIKELY CAUCUS GOERS -- SAMPLING
ERROR: +/- 6 PERCENTAGE PTS.

Edit to add: That appears to just be Iowa.

Yes, I was already able to find that. Did I miss where this source states it's data includes other likely-voters than Republicans?

I'd like to find where you came-up with that conclusion.

I'm asking questions. No hate.

Can you post the particular quote that discusses those numbers in the poll representing likely-voters other than Republicans? Is this what you are referring to?



likely Republican caucus-goers

A likely republican caucus voter is not a republican caucus voter. I guess it is now you interpret it. In polls they usually have them separated as Republican and Republican leaning or likely...

A "likely Republican caucus voter" does include Republicans....that will likely vote in the caucus, or may have in the past.

Where does your "not just Republicans" statement come from?

You are talking in circles. A likely Republican voter could be a democrat...or an independent. If you do not understand than there is nothing else to say here.

I applaud your tenacity though...

Indeed, it could very well be voters other than Republicans, but I am just asking how you qualify that statement. Any numbers to go with it?


edit on 21-1-2016 by introvert because: (no reason given)


By the way, this is what you said:



A likely republican caucus voter is not a republican caucus voter.


So that would not include Republicans that voted in the past, or would it? I'm confused.

Oh, I see, YOU speak for the rest of America. Got it. Take your limp wrist elsewhere, perhaps Europe.

I'm disappointed that nobody is really addressing/discussing the political points/issues I raised earlier.

Is that because the answers aren't there? Or is it because US politics is all about "attack mode" and not sensible discussion between rational people?

Don't you want some substance? Shouldn't your presidential candidates be respectful to others, and therefore respected? What is the measure of the average american? Do you want/enjoy being perceived as ignorant loudmouthed bullies (which, whether Trump supporters like it or not does actually appear to be a shared perception of the man worldwide) or as a progressive, informed diplomatic nation?

Lots and lots of questions. How about we discuss, without the BS, some answers?


I would not mind discussing. Sorry I missed this I was distracted per usual by the usual suspects.

Respectful? The way I see it, is that Trump is a reactionary person. If you push he pushes back. He goads, but it is to find out the truth of his enemies. Sometimes you cause a little chaos to find the true chaos.

The average American? He/She is of multiple races, work hard and are tired of giving 30% of their salary to the government while there are those who use the system. Those who use the system are also usually cheating the system and promoting others to use the system as they do. It is you brother...an aunt. A person laid off from a job after 30 years who watches burger flippers ask for 15 dollars an hour to afford the latest iPhone and buy the new Jordans.

I an not a loudmouth, or a racist, or a sexist as well as college educated and I will vote for him. I am not what the establishment is calling a Trump supporter. I am a middle class, kid having, mortgage paying drained his 401k during the crash to live non socialist...

No we are laughing at him and those dumb enough to support him.

Really the other day at work a whole bunch of us were just killing ourselves laughing at the prospect of him being president. You can bet that all over the world there a groups of people having a good laugh about this


To be fair the presidency has been a joke long before Trump.

The main thing he has done is show many Americans that politics in this country is nothing but a dog and pony show.
