Everybody is wrong

By Dean L

Donald Trump is wrong.  His bluster and uncouth campaign for the Republican nomination is looking more and more like a winning formula – but not so in the general election against Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.  In order to win there, he’s going to have to start, immediately, looking presidential, sounding knowledgeable on a myriad of issues by actually having some details at the ready.

Polls indicate that Trump will get decimated in the general election.  Except the polls are wrong.  Before yesterday polls had Hillary Clinton trouncing Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary in Michigan. By not a little, but by A LOT  Except she didn’t. She lost.

People in the ‘anybody but Trump’ camp are wrong too.  Not that he should be the nominee.  I personally trust him about as far as I could throw the GOP elephant.  He’s not my first choice.  He could fundamentally screw up the Supreme Court for decades. He really could.  But people wanting Trump to go away, are using the vs. Hillary polling as their latest reason that Trump should not be the nominee.  Their timing could not be worse as the latest evidence shows that polls on Hillary aren’t as rock solid as liberals believe Hillary’s chances are.  Angry Trump voters are not blind.  Trump very well could be the most beatable general election Republican in the field but six months ago people thought he was the most beatable Republican in the primaries. Current evidence supports their mistrust for polls not the the reverse – polls are not going to repudiate Trump supporters’ faith.

Wanting Trump to falter in his quest for the nomination is not a bad thing, but the latest set of tactics are as wrong as the previous ones.

Then again, I could be wrong.


  1. Some people like to cite the inevitability of Trump. Trump has benefited from a large field, which spread out the Anybody But Trump vote. He also has the charm and is every bit as believable as…Bernie Madoff. That worked well for him for a time.
    Be that as it may, I'm still holding out hope that sufficient numbers of Anybody But Trump voters will coalesce behind Ted Cruz and prevent Trump from having enough votes to win on the first ballot of the convention, thereby leaving Trump the Hobson's choice of Republican voters in November.
    I am probably wrong, but then the alternative is too awful to dwell upon.

    1. I share your hope Proof. There's nothing wrong with that.

  2. I am not a Trump supporter, but the smears of racism and violence are as unfounded as they were against us in the Tea Party. I am ashamed when I see people who have been victimized by this tactic become influenced when it is used against another.

    No one, not ever, during the last decade has watched The Apprentice while thinking, "what a violent racist." Everyone knows Trump is not a racist or inciting violence.

    Those tasks have fallen to Bernie Sanders, who is openly calling for a revolution and inciting actual violence.

    Let me remind everyone that the frontrunning Democrat should be in prison on multiple counts. Hillary can't even push a nutjob communist out of the race. She could NEVER beat Trump.

    So worry about Trump's lack of credentials and character, but don't incite violence against him by accusing him of racism or "using racism". It is empty, insulting to our intelligence, and has no legs in popular culture.

    People are angry about the leftist agenda. People are angry about progressives in both parties trying to control us. People are angry at idiots pushing pseudoscience and then stealing our money to give to their cronies.

    It is NOT racism that drives the people to anger, it is to righteous anger to protect AMERICANISM from power hungry liars and thieves.

    1. Don't be so sure about the "She could never beat Trump" part. Some of us were sure that Obama would never get reelected after his first abysmal four years. If Hillary's not indicted and Trump is our standard bearer, you may want to start practicing saying, "Madame President".

  3. I agree with DDE that the attacks against Trump are very disturbing. However, Proof is right – assuming anyone is completely beatable or unbeatable is not a good idea. Obama was a prime example but I recall thinking the same thing about her husband plurality Bill. Yet he won twice.

    No matter what happens, Republicans and conservatives in general need to take this election VERY seriously. The stakes are way too high not to win.

    1. Rubio has suspended his campaignnow. That narrows the field,, and if they can reconcile their differences, a Cruz/Rubio ticket might be unbeatable.
