Like it Or Not, Donald Trump is Getting Stronger

  • by: Colorado Pols

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has picked up a remarkable percentage of support in the last 10 months (since he first announce he would run for President).

As “The Fix” reports, one graphic alone shows just how amazingly consistent Trump’s rise has been over the last year:

Trump’s improvement on the “could you see yourself voting for him” question is amazing enough in a vacuum. When you compare his rise on the question to, say, how Jeb Bush has fared on it, you begin to appreciate the true remarkableness of what Trump has done.

      1. I'm not sure it's instructive, but I thought it was interesting that his supportability stalled out around the pancreas, then increased significantly once it reached the anus.

  1. Insightful article about how the GOP paved the way for Trump's current success:

    After years of tickling the dragon's tail, flirting with the demagoguery of America's right wing and egging on a growing rage within a core constituency of disaffected, working class white Americans, the dragon has started to breathe fire, and the flames have spread in all directions. The result is the maddening success of raving nativist Donald Trump and to a lesser extent, Senator Ted Cruz.

    Establishment Republicans are shocked, shocked that such a thing is possible. Late last week, Washington Post columnist and former Dubya speechwriter Michael Gerson fell into the prose version of a dead faint. He wrote that, "Trump's nomination would not be the temporary victory of one of the GOP's ideological factions. It would involve the replacement of the humane ideal at the center of the party and its history. If Trump were the nominee, the GOP would cease to be."

    1. Speaking of "tickling a dragon's tail, Davie, that reminds me of a proverb from a science fiction series I read. "Though it is rare to chain a dragon to roast your meat. it is far from well done."

    1. Yeah winky wink.  "If those Democrats would have been more accommodating with their candidates then by golly I would have given them a look see even though I know in my gut like George Bush that Climate Change is hoax and helping the poor reads really good in the New Testament.  It makes me tingle with self-righteousness every time I walk past the donation box for the poor at church".


      You would vote against your most cherished myths and self-deceptions if only Democrats just nominated the right person.  That was one barf worthy post you phony baloney fool.  Biden supports Climate Change mitigation policies and nutritional assistance to those facing hunger.

      Ten cents says you vote for Trump in the General and do it with the smug self-satisfaction that this billionaire really is going to look out after your interests.  You'll convince yourself through self-hypnosis that the Donald really isn't a narcissistic prick.

    2. I am having a blast these days asking my GOP tax clients who they are supporting.  Like you, most say they don't like any of them.  So, I ask why they hate America.  I mean, really, you can't name one person you kind of like in the primary??   Of course, they hate all politicians, of all stripes — Obama, GW Bush, Clinton, HW Bush, even Reagan (he raised Social Security taxes).

      I guess Lincoln would say of today's GOP, "You can't please some of the people any of the time." 

      They should just leave the freakin' country — Love it or leave it, assholes.

    1. And that ace constitutional litigator and duck eater found himself named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed today by a (can you believe it) Texan challenging Cruz' right to run for president given his Canadian birth. 

  2. And the N.Y. Times front page is reporting that the GOP is desperately seeking an alternative to Trump and Cruz.

    Where are you, Willard Mittens Romney? Your party needs you!

    1. The question asked is a simple one: Could you see yourself supporting [fill in the blank candidate] for the Republican nomination for president? When NBC/WSJ  first asked GOP voters that question [emphasis mine] about Trump last March, fewer than one in four (23 percent) said they could see themselves voting for him.
