Donald Trump

Postby Wd40 » Fri, 18 Sep 2015 9:26 pm

I wonder why we still dont have a thread about Donald Trump
Here's something to set the ball rolling :)

Donald Trump has been criticised for failing to correct a supporter who said US President Barack Obama was a Muslim and "not even an American".

trump is ahead by 10% in the republican polls. i have no idea how competent to be a president he is (probably as little as the others). his great appeal is from the fact that he's breaking through the politically correctness of the usual presidency debates. he's kind of a "slim shady". people seem to like that (which i must admit i like to see - i hate "taboo" themes in these debates and i hate "automatic, generally acceptable" answers).

beyond that ... who the hell knows

He's an absolute moron and an idiot! God bless America if he becomes president!

That Trump leads in the polls is proof of how brain dead the average Republican voter is.

He surely is no statesman, but when a candidate leads by such a large margin, he is a serious candidate.

The fact that so many think that his candidacy cannot be serious and that he is not electable could actually lead to him being elected.

I think in many countries people are increasingly fed up with all this political correctness. With the economies or at least subjective level of living quality in decline products similar to DT find a good ground to flourish.

I like the concept of someone like him to shake things up and not be beholden to the typical special interests, but I hate most of his views.

He's anti-vaccine, which is one of the very few "single issue" items which convince me to oppose him even if I agreed with everything else he had to say.

Still, isn't this all just a year-long circus replete with clowns that half a year later won't look anything like it does today?

And every campaign there is a new clown.

What was that Simon and Garfunkel line from "Mrs. Robinson"....

Most probably.

If I understand things correctly, the most popular contender early on in a race with many candidates rarely carry that momentum to victory. I think people enjoy the circus act but then later on, "oh shit, do I really want this person to have the nuclear launch codes?!"

I'm waiting for the moment he drops the act and reveals that this is in fact satire. Then again I thought the same about Palin last time round.

Wishful thinking of the RNC?
Isn't JB languishing in 3rd, slightly ahead of Ted Cruz, with less than half the support as that for Dr. Ben Carson?

Is there a particular election campaign that you're referring to?
One where the poll leads are as dramatic as they are today.

Even if just looking at favourability numbers, JB is way behind Carson and Trump.
He is even behind Ms. Fiorina after the latest debate.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/09/18/post-debate-poll-trump-increases-lead-fiorina-leaps-carson-drops/

With the strong showing of Trump, Carson and now Fiorina a common theme here seems to be a rejection of the establishment. In this case, anything can happen.
Anything.
