Official Donald Trump for President thread

Recommended Posts

I still think Trump is far more likely to cause harm as a third party candidate ("pledge" or not) than to be the Republican nominee. Let's concede that the guy literally can't do anything to dissuade the roughly 25% of Republican or Republican leaning voters who support him to switch votes. So he has a relatively high floor. He still has a very limited ceiling.

Trump can't win the nomination with 25% of the vote. He has to pick up voters at the same rate as others as candidates drop out. That seems unlikely to me once the "establishment candidate" is picked (be it Rubio or Cruz or even a resurgent Jeb!). His negative numbers with Republican leaning voters are kind of middle of the pack. His negative numbers among all voters are massive (it would be a godsend to Hilary to face an opponent where she clearly wins the "likability" race).

about that pledge....check his tweet from about an hour ago - he's making noises that he thinks he is being treated 'unfairly'

:popcorn:

That pledge is ridiculously stupid to begin with.

What does it say about your negotiating skills if you agreed to sign a "stupid" pledge and then try to get out of it 3 months later?

Given that it is a nonbinding and frankly childish contract (surprised there aren't clauses about cooties or givebacks), it says he played them.

I'm not going to lie, I like our chances here. You're going to see a fundamentally changed America with Trump as President.

Nothing, really either way. That pledge is a sign of good will, but there's nothing legally binding.

It seems clear that whether you like it or not Trump is hitting the mark with potential voters. When they flashed to Iowa this week and you see salt of the earth types that are rallying behind Trump, see that's the real pulse of America and why at time the Left is so out of touch with a lot of regular Joe types. I know the left would have you believe the regular Joes all vote for them but obviously many of us know better.

This is not complimentary of regular Joes.

Unfortunately that might not be true. He has 41% of the vote right now so that would be a little more than 0% I think.

It gets worse: Trump supporter yells ‘Sieg heil!’ as protester violently dragged out of Vegas rally

016 GOP presidential contender Donald Trump’s campaign took an even uglier turn Monday night, as one Trump supporter was heard yelling “Sieg heil!” as a protester was dragged from the room by campaign security.

According to MSNBC, several Trump supporters were screaming at protesters who were being manhandled and ejected from the rally held at the Westgate Hotel and Resort.

While it had previously been reported that one black protester was assaulted by security as a Trump supporter shouted, “Light that motherf*cker on fire!” a reporter from MSNBC said a large middle-aged man shouted, “Sieg heil!” — a Nazi-era salute — while one protester was hauled away.

In video from NBC (see below), the shout can clearly be heard

Another man — described as wearing a “glittering black suit” — was heard yelling, “He’s a Muslim! He’s a Muslim!” as a protester was escorted from the ballroom.

As the protesters were being hauled away, Trump continued speaking to the crowd, complaining that the only time the media films the large crowds at his rally is when they are being interrupted by protesters.

Watch video below from NBC: (at link).

A lot of people really don't like Hillary. I'm not a huge fan either, personally.

But she is an intelligent and extremely well-qualified politician. That can't really be argued, whether you agree with her or not.

Donald Trump on the other hand.....is a joke.

Pretty incredible that the two GOP frontrunners have ZERO political experience.

What's even funnier is that the biggest knock on Obama in '08 was......lack of experience.

These stories just make him more popular with the kind of people who would support him in the first place.

"Schlonged": Watch Donald Trump's astonishingly sexist new attack on Hillary Clinton

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump used a campaign stop in Michigan on Monday to make astonishingly sexist attacks against Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

At one point, Trump told the Grand Rapids crowd that Clinton got “schlonged” by President Obama during their 2008 Democratic primary race.

“Even her race to Obama. She was going to beat Obama. I don’t know who’d be worse. I don’t know. How does it get worse? She was favored to win and she got schlonged. She lost. She lost,” Trump said.

“Schlong” is a well-known reference to a man’s genitals. There are no alternative definitions for the word, according to Merriam-Webster.

Hopefully we can widen our lead to 51%. Seems like we should be bucking that corner sometime soon.

- I just thought I'd point out that I watched this and you can indeed hear a salute. Of course we don't know who this person is and Msnbc did not bother to check but it is there.

I've seen that too. It's clear that Trump and the media are using each other right now. Trump also leads all candidates by far in total media time spent talking about him. Sanders is way down the list, like below Christie levels even though he is nearly at the same level of support as Trump.

However I also read yesterday that Trump may be making a media buy soon, he will have to invest some real money at some point.

Watching his rally in Hilton Head on CSPAN right now. First one of these I've seen and I have to admit he's really good up there. Commanding, funny, dare I say charming. Crowd just hanging on every word.
