But carnivals are fun!!
Latest national poll has Trump in 2nd place behind Cruz. Guess that Carny will have to move on.

Well, the thought is that Trump is a "bandwagon candidate," someone who is inevitably the winner, until they're not, at which point they either lose interest in the voters or vice versa. It's a hopeful sign that the bragging, bombast and BS may be exceeding its sell-by date.
But carnivals are fun!!Not when you have to clean up the vomited cotton candy and the horse crap left behind.
While the notion that Trump is a bandwagon candidate is plausible, I'd like to see more evidence. If Cruz wins a few states on Super Tuesday, then I'll be more willing to entertain the notion.
Blame the GOP for trump. The bushes and bohners and the rest who fiddled around with wall street money men while the working class got burned. I'm going to enjoy the show and wait for the pitchfork revolution to get real.
Lot of people to blame for Trump; the GOP headship is one, but we've got to blame our local politicians (who gave billions for his bankrupt businesses), the media (who utterly fail to vet guys like our current POTUS), and ourselves--it wasn't that long ago that clear adultery, business bankruptcy, and being a general blowhard was electoral death.(yes, Kennedy and a host of others were adulterers, but it was not known to most voters....)For that matter, DC is a target rich environment, with a lot of blameworthy parties, in a LOT of ways.I am hoping and praying for a candidate who's a little quieter, one who realizes that it's just plain obnoxious to force nuns to buy birth control for loose women, one who realizes that my kids just starting out shouldn't be subsidizing Teslas for lawyers, and the like.
pray hard. its all we really got.(and keep our pitchforks in good working order, i think we are gonna need them)
"I am hoping and praying for a candidate who's a little quieter, one who realizes that it's just plain obnoxious to force nuns to buy birth control for loose women, one who realizes that my kids just starting out shouldn't be subsidizing Teslas for lawyers, and the like."Uh, his name is John Kasich, but the GOP base is too dumb to see that.
If I thought it was the GOP base supporting Trump rather than Kasich, I would take your comment as an insult to them. And other than Trump, the other remaining candidates can all make the same claim.
Jerry, The GOP Base is supporting Trump.I think you are confusing the GOP Base with the GOP Establishment.
I don't think it is the GOP base. The heavy turnout in these elections tells me that the base is being augmented by people that don't normally vote Republican-- the base. That concerns me because the GOP base has some ideas that I would like to see in public policy; I don't see those policies in the Trump stump speeches or past actions. Now, what I would like to see is the "establishment" get solidly behind Trump and see how long his popularity lasts.
