You haven't answered me though. Would Clinton or Sanders be worse than Obama? I'll take it a step further. Would Trump be worse than Obama? If Trump would be worse than Obama, then by extension Clinton or Sanders would be better than Trump.

Why would Trump be worse; other than an Emperor wearing new clothes to fit Republican ideologies? Clinton even worse; at least with Sanders; promises real change (can he pull it off). I have said this before and will say it again; this election will be won on whomever picks the right running mate. Personally; I would have liked to see Martin O'Malley vs John Kaisch in the General as POTUS; of course probably did not answer your question (am I close). I gave you a big hint as to who the Vice President running mates are likely to be.

It is clear that the institutional policies of make the American public fat, stupid, and lazy have been successful with large amounts of the population.

They have created a nation of people who will vote for a corrupt scumbag like Shillary Clinton because the alternative being served up is this pseudo-celebrity Trump and vice versa.

Fortunately for us a fair amount of people are paying attention and have funded Sanders to stop 4 more years of the heinous Clinton family.

I am still laughing about people thinking there is a difference between Shillary and Trump and their love of the CFR.

Well you really follow politics don't you? /s....It's Cruz's wife who is the CFR member...Trump has nothing to do with the CFR...


Oh I follow politics just fine, do you?

Trumps endorsement of the CRF President Richard Haasss, as establishment as one could get!!!


Donald J. Trump, who again declined on Thursday morning to say whom he talks to about foreign affairs, held a private briefing last summer with Richard N. Haass, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, a spokeswoman for Mr. Haass said Thursday. The spokeswoman, Iva Zoric, released a statement after Mr. Trump made a laudatory statement about Mr. Haass in an appearance Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I respect Richard Haass, who’s on your show a lot,” Mr. Trump said. “And I like him a lot. I have a few people that I really like and respect.’ Mr. Haass, as president of an independent nonpartisan organization, cannot make an endorsement in the presidential race, Ms. Zoric’s statement said. She said that he had offered to hold briefings with all candidates from both parties, and that so far Senator Marco Rubio, Jim Webb, Hillary Clinton, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, Gov. John Kasich of Ohio and Jeb Bush had made appearances at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Actually, America doesn't like Trump as much as Trump fans claim.

Seriously. Trump fans just scream and yell the loudest, that's why it seems like they're everywhere. Here's a new Associated Press article about a poll just done:



Seven in 10 people, including close to half of Republican voters, have an unfavorable view of Trump, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. It's an opinion shared by majorities of men and women; young and old; conservatives, moderates and liberals; and whites, Hispanics and blacks — a devastatingly broad indictment of the billionaire businessman.


That's not anywhere close to what the Trump fans would want us to believe...



The number of Americans who view him unfavorably has risen more than 10 percentage points since mid-February, a two-month stretch that has included some of his biggest primary victories but also an array of stumbles that suggested difficulties with his campaign organization and a lack of policy depth.


A dose of reality from the real world -- not from the Trump propaganda camp:



More than 60 percent of all registered voters and 31 percent of Republicans said they definitely would not vote for Trump in the general election.

Associated Press

Trump is a sinking ship, and a loosing proposition for the GOP. They won't win the White House with Trump. Well, they won't win with anyone really -- the electoral college is locked, ensuring a Democrat will win. The Democrats start off on election day in November with 236 out of 270 needed votes.

The only thing the Democrats need to do in order to win is capture a few undecided swing states. The GOP has to completely turn blue states red AND win contested battleground states. That isn't going to happen. The GOP is going to loose no matter who they run.

But no, to answer this threads premise -- America does NOT support Trump in the way it appears. Most of America doesn't have a favorable view of Trump. He's a spectacle so he gets media coverage. His supporters are loud mouthed and pushy, so it seems like they are all over.

The fact of the matter is, Trump is loosing steam and loosing support. He's a sinking ship and his bandwagon followers will soon be bailing (as they are, by and large bandwagon supporters).


I don't think America likes any of the leading candidates very much - in terms of unfavorables.
Ted Cruz has risen from 40% to 55% unfavorable from Dec15 to Apr16
Hillary Clinton is at 55% unfavorable also , having been only 35% two years ago.
Trump has gone from 56% unfavorable to 65% from Dec15 to Apr16

Guess what, the two candidates who have no chance of winning have the lowest unfavorables.
Kasich is not getting the votes and has only won his home state.
Sanders is too far behind for his late run to matter and will start losing again in NY.

Stop and think for a moment why the candidates who have no chance of winning enough votes from the people to get elected by their parties have the lowest unfavorable ratings...

People who support Donald Trump are absolutely convinced he's the next best thing for America, and will never, ever be convinced otherwise.

It doesn't matter what he says or does, or what he's said or done in the past. The idiots who support trump are pretty much the lowest information voters, who are supporting Trump because all their friends do and it's what's popular.

It's like millions of people going to a crappy movie because it's the popular thing to do, and they're not willing to be the ones to say that it's crap because everyone else likes it. As soon as one person says it's crap, several others will probably join in from among your friends.

People outside America are reacting with astonishment that ANYBODY would find Donald Trump the most palatable choice for President.

Go to any 'resale junk shop' (we are not speaking of a high end trickle down in Beverly Hills) and whose inventory consists of scratched up bald Teflon fry pans and drip coffee machines from the '90s. The shiniest thing at this venue will attract your eye and you will buy it as was perceived the best of the selection of goods presented; take it home (not realizing you just bought a used toothbrush collection from someone that has passed).

I would say Trump is more a Very "DISORGANIZED" (out of his comfort zone/business acumen) Casino Wannabee Owner; that so mismanaged these holdings declared bankruptcy and proceeded with those filings and won on these failed Atlantic City business endeavors. "Too big to fail" and the banks bailed him out with smaller interest rates and dept paid down (eventually) over the next 12,000 years. Smart Cookie. Lets see what he does with our 19 trillion dollar deficit.

If he doesn't "take the oil" from Iraq and possibly Saudi Arabia, to pay down the debt, I think he is going to preside over the biggest sell off of national assets in American history, as an alternative.

What else can he do?

If Donald Trump thinks he is going to straighten China out on trade policy, he might be in for a rude awakening.

www.reuters.com...

EU loses WTO case, China could seek trade sanctions


The value of China's exports of the products to the EU peaked at over $1 billion in 2008, but averaged about $200 million after the EU imposed punitive tariffs on the Chinese exports in 2009, according to a Reuters analysis of data from the International Trade Centre, a UN-WTO joint venture.

Under WTO rules, countries are allowed to punish "dumping" - or exports priced at an unfairly cheap level - to stop one country deliberately undermining its foreign rivals by artificially undercutting their prices.

But the use of anti-dumping tariffs is subject to strict rules and, in this case, China complained that the EU had not applied the rules correctly. WTO arbitrators agreed.

The EU appealed and lost, and said it had reduced the tariffs. But China complained that the EU had not done enough to comply with the ruling, and again it won.

The EU's final appeal appears to have backfired, with the WTO judges reversing points that previously went in the EU's favor and toughening the ruling against it.

An EU trade official declined to comment.


Incidentally, Putin may admire Trump but the Chinese think he's a crackpot.

www.wsj.com...


Chinese Finance Minister Lou Jiwei called GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump an “irrational type” and said the U.S. “wouldn’t be entitled to world leadership” if it followed Mr. Trump’s proposed trade policies toward China.

If Trump is a 'crackpot' what do they REALLY think of their shill/proxy lunatic North Korean dictator; Kim Jong Ill? They feed this being but refuse to change the soiled infant diapers he wears that they provided.
