    IMO he is bad for the country TODAY much less if he sits at 1600.
    I agree.

    There are still so many just dismissing him as a joke.

    It's so far beyond that folks. He's winning and it's not really close.

    I'm not a Trump supporter or hater so I don't hang on his every word...I honestly just haven't followed him that closely.

    JD when you add up much he has said up, it is hard not to think he is bigoted. He appears to be intolerant of almost anyone who isn't a white male. He has said hateful remarks about Kelly and Florina, called Mexicans rapists, said that blacks have murdered most of the white people murdered, said 1000's of Muslims celebrated in the streets after 911 and that is just a little of what he has said along these lines. Many supporters say he is just saying what we all are thinking which is baloney.

    These are just a few. Anyone might say something hateful or stupid and maybe bigoted and truly understand it was wrong and apologize, but there is no just one time mistake with him. It is a pattern, I believe it is intentional and he is bringing bigots in this country out of the woodwork and he wants to for votes. Not everyone who supports him is bigoted, but many are.

    He has run a very smart campaign,. You can't deny that. However, he does NOT have a majority of Americans supporting him. Show me where he clearly has the majority.Just the most Republicans according to polls.
    This.

    About the only thing I can think of that I agree with Trump about is Megan Kelly.

    There's some truth to what you and wireman are both saying. He's attracting the "we're fed up with politicians" crowd, but he's also pandering to a group of (dare I say it) white, narrow-minded folks who can now conveniently hide behind the "I just want things to change" mantra.

    Scary.

    Some of them, yes. The white, narrow-minded ones that papa referenced above.

    This comment will likely fall into one of two categories, either "preaching to the choir" or "falling upon deaf ears," but...
    Trump is the perfection of the repub's manner of winning elections. He is the fruit of newt gingrich, roger ailes, karl rove, etc. He is simply using every single dirty trick and manipulation that they trumpeted thru the years. I am enjoying the irony that they can't now control him, and they can't stop him. They have scorned facts, logic, fairness, and respect for so long that their voters are immune to facts and logic and they have absolutely no idea how to kill the monster they created.
    But no worries, it will all be over soon. He is gonna win this nomination, and get absolutely clobbered in the general election. Republican party is on a fast track to obscurity, hoisted on their own petard.

    I still think that the establishment, in a last ditch effort, will try to eliminate Cruz first and then go hard at eliminating Trump in favor of Rubio. They may have waited too long. Trump may be their nominee.
