OK since no one will talk about the Elephant in the room. Is everyone on board with his run at the White House? I'm thinking the status quo lifetime Politician is what voters are tired of. This man with no real Political experience, brash comments and carry a big stick attitude is what most of downtrodden Americans are looking for.
And by chance if he somehow does not get the GOP nomination. Does he run as an Independent? and can he win?

I would say something, but I don't want to hear the usual "You're a RWRE Christian Conservative nut job wacko" so I have decided that since there are members here that believe that Hillary's coronation inevitable I will not take part in any 2016 discussion.

The poll numbers look like the wheels are falling off Hillarity’s bus.

I’m thinking there’s enough Clinton and Bush fatigue neither will end up in the White House.  I’m really surprised Jeb is polling as well as he has been.

I don't know..let's remember what happened to Clinton in 92 with the allegations of infidelity.  Can't count someone out just yet.  I've begun watching Bernie a little more closely...

What is kind of surprising, even to me, is how he is polling 25% or so... just shows where a quarter of the Republican party is....and how sad that really is...


But I still bet he will drop out soon - he just wants to have enough impact so he can have some input into the goings on.  That job takes way too much attention  The Donald will never stand for that.

He’s also polling well with independents.

Trump simply says what the career politicians are thinking but are too afraid to say.  I think people are appreciating the honesty and his unabashed non-PC way of speaking.

How long that will keep voters captivated remains to be seen.  Once the RNC starts funding soft money attack ads on Trump to push Jeb to the forefront, the sheeple will turn away.

If he really runs as an independent, he'll steal away some of the nut-balls from both parties. 

Probably many of the ex-tea partiers.

It would have the same effect as Perot running as an IND in 1992.

My memory tells me Perot felt a little less like a joke.

Aside from Dana Carvey/Phil Hartman - which is a classic.

Would like to see the Trump ticket - he would pick Carly for VP.  That would be so great...the Bankrupcy King with the Queen of Running Hewlett Packard Into the Ground and Destroying a Great Company.

Oh please don't let him pick a Woman as his running mate. It's a ticket killer. If he is all about not being Politically correct. Then don't try the novel idea of having a Female VEEP. In what polls has it ever shown that having a Female running mate works?
Pick one of the several stiffs that were on stage with him last night and be done with it.
So much can happen in the next year so who knows what he will do when the heat ramps up the first quarter of 2016. At the moment I'm enjoying Politics worth talking about.

This really isn't politics on that side of the aisle somuch as it is a circus.

Hence the 'clown car' analogy.

Is it sad that everytime I hear one of these doofuses start talking, I hear this?

No self respecting woman in this country would run for VP with him.  Ever.



Also, there is a kind of a sidebar in all this about the type of woman who would actually marry him...

(Do I hear a Roy Orbison song playing faintly in the background...??)

Trump should name Rosie O'Donnell as his running mate.

There is no way that Trump wants to be president because he genuinely cares about the electorate, Trump is in this for Trump.

He always is.  He’s the type that would wear a ribbed condom inside-out for his pleasure.
