    Yep, he may really be the nominee. I thought they would have gotten rid of him by now but they waited too long and underestimated just how little Republican voters liked guys Bush , Christie ,and Kasich. Trump supporters clearly want nothing to do with those guys.

    I just think that alot of mainstream America from both parties do not like the direction we are headed. Not that they dislike the people you mentioned personally, but they are going to go against the grain in this election. Thats the beauty of the vote. If they do not do as they should vote them out.

    Trump is only saying what the majority are thinking. There could be alot better spoken candidates, but in this election there are none. Think about it. Look at the front runners on both sides. That should paint you a picture that would tell us all we certainly can do better.

    No doubt. There is definitely no excitement or energy for anyone remotely connected to the political establishment. You have a bad-hair crass billionaire and an angry old curmudgeon that are garnering all the passion and energy.

    I think it's funny that the Left are touting two old white people as their candidates. The Right has 2 Hispanics, a woman and a black man along with several white men.

    And they call the Right the party of exclusion.

    While Trump is not my first choice, I do not think I am "above" anyone.

    Is this more of the elitist Left attitude?

    They all believe they're smarter than everyone else. That's only a small part of the problem.

    If we can just get Bernie nominated, then if Trump wins, we may see the largest voter turnout in American history.

    The tv pundits just can't understand how these guys could be winning.

    Priceless

    Scary.
    While the narrow minded white folks will likely support Trump and the narrow minded black and Mexican folks will likely support Hillary, The large corporations will never allow Bernie Sanders to become president.

    While I agree that mainstream voters are tired of establishment politics, I'm not sold they're ready to hand the reigns to a raving lunatic. I think it's very possible he wins the nomination. I think that a lot of people, though, may back off on actually handing him the keys to the Kwikset

    I agree Rockmom. I also agree with Bernie that corporations and special interest groups should not decide who becomes president.

    I TOTALLY disagree. Small business takes the biggest hit from socialistic policies, large corporations in turn benefit from it.
