Donald Trump leads all other potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll of likely GOP primary
The billionaire real estate mogul and reality TV star garnered 19 percent of the vote, just ahead of Mitt Romney with 17 percent. Mike Huckabee
collected 15 percent, and Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich were tied with 9 percent.
So I have been doing some research on Donald Trump since the last time I posted about him, which I criticized his severely. I think it is necessary
for me to apologize for that sharp criticism and condemn myself for ignorance because I did not even research him.
Since that time I have researched him and was actually pretty happy with what I saw. The Birther issue bothers me a lot because I see it as frivolous
and counterproductive but the other issues he speaks about make me tune in. One issue I had always absolutely loved from him was the import tariff on
China, never before have I heard anyone speak what absolutely must be done to save our crumbling economy and infrastructure.
Ron Paul doesn’t even talk about that issue, he says the trade with China is great for both of us right now (which made me furious). So I will wait
and see what further comes from The Donald, I will keep an open mind.
Either way he is leading the GOP 2012 field right now so his message must resonate with a lot of people.
