Trump still killing the Republican field. Non-politician Carson in second. Establishment hand-picked tools Bush and Walker and Rubio down to 4th and 6th and 9th respectively. A good poll.

54. "Why Donald Trump makes sense to many voters — even some Democrats"

Here's an interesting article I came across on this. I think he's hit on the nerve that for millions and millions of Americans the future looks pretty bleak given the present course. In his bombastic way, he's not afraid to speak on what millions of Americans are feeling, while other politicians seem only capable on talking about abortion, religion, gay marriage and all the rest of the crap they harp on to get the vote. Trump goes after what is really F'ed up in this country. Bernie IMO does similar.

I've worked for people like Trump and frankly they were great to work for/with them. You always knew where you stood, what to do and there was no bullshit from them. I had one CEO like him and he ran a great company. I can see why some people like him. That all said, my concern is he often sounds more like a dictator than a presidential candidate, and I don't care for the part of him that rips others apart IMO often unnecessarily. That's where I like Bernie better.

Anyway, this article was interesting if you've not read it. It really hits on why many people like him and I can see their point.

3. I know he's got a private helicopter in use

but is Trump really spending a lot of money so far to maintain this frontrunner position? How big is his staff? He's getting tons of air time absolutely free just by opening his mouth at impromptu press coverage. I doubt that he's spending as much as Jeb Bush. According to this New York Times article, Trump has spent nearly the least of any candidate in the race. Jeb Bush is spending $10 million for a massive TV campaign that I'll bet won't get him as much face time in the news as Trump is getting for free. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz aren't getting much for their money. What will happen if Trump really starts spending money?

40. It will be like the Koch Brothers - no amount of additional money will get him anything - everyone

 

already knows his spiel. He's a major rude crude sexist racist jerk. They will either vote for him at this point, or not.
Remember the Koches spent 100 million on a state election in 2012 and the voters were chanting their name(in a bad way) when the candidate was trying to speak and he lost the election. I don't remember which candidate/state it was but there were articles after that more money was finally proven to not beable to buy elections. Trump's wasting his cash. He's getting press for ratings but you can bet when it comes to the wire, most of those networks will actively turn against him in fear that he would be president. He's is the fool - being tooled by the press who know better than to get him elected president.

Just not a big deal. Its a cable network. The big 3 get the real ratings.
There's no difference between a lineup of O'reilly and Kelly and a lineup of Hayes & Maddow. They all have their focus and they all have their overlords.
And watching the debate I was expecting no tough questions for anyone. i was surprised that they did get tough. And it wasnt just Trump; asking cruz who God told him to help first was priceless.

19. And polls are just another way to get the apathetics to care - Horse race anyone?

Polls are put out by media that want to get the attention of the people that don't have anything else to do while sitting on their couch. Another way to sell advertising and POV - usually dictated by their lords and masters.

Crowd numbers are a lot more real. Perhaps inflated by Trump$ or otherwise. I don't think Bernie is spending very much on getting people to show up. They are spending their own money to see and support him.

Most others are relying on companies making PAC contributions or companies "asking" their employees to support a particular candidate (read: if you don't contribute, you don't work here.)

38. Agreed. They can't win with Trump. The Latino vote is already massively energized because of him.

 

the dems already have this. The only change the Repubs had was Bush - Bush could cross over for Florida voters and also get the nations elderly. The bet on trump is, are the majority of voters racists? No they're not. The majority elected Obama twice. Trump will lose and kill the chances of any other repub winning because he's divided them. The Dems will rally for the dem candidate when it comes down to it, even the racist dems.

42. Not at all sure the Dems have it, in spite of going in w/

an electoral edge. Hillary's high negatives, horrible instincts and repeated bad campaigning are huge hurdles.

As I understand it, neither Bush nor Rubio won an election in Florida in a presidential year, only during low voter turnout off years, so I'm not convinced either necessarily auto-locks Florida.

13. If Trump is the only issue, the polls have been the same. If you think Bush, Walker, and Rubio's

polling is more important (because one of them will get the nomination), the polls have been changing because Bush is sagging, Walker is free falling, and Rubio cannot (with any consistency) capitalize on Bush's and Walker's weaknesses.

Trump is interesting as a symptom of the (fatal?) sickness infecting the Republican Party; he is also interesting because he helps illustrate the ignorance, xenophobia, and bigotry of a shockingly large minority within the modern Republican primary voter block. He is NOT interesting in any sort of a horse-race-for-the-nomination fashion because he can only lead a field divided among many candidates; his 25% to 30% of support in their primary looks impressive in a field of 17 but it won't mean much when the race winnows down to 3 or 4 candidates.

On the "how interesting" measure, he'd break the scale (and by "interesting," I mean the word in the same sense as it is used in the apocryphal Chinese curse "may you live in interesting times".

23. I'll agree on Kasich

I thought he was the clear winner of the first debate but I viewed in a general election perspective. Kasich will be a good VP pick for them.

Rand was the one I was worried about. A legacy of the libertarian sect with Tea Party cred (turnout) and he connects through the camera. TONS of racial baggage but the press would cover that up for him. The Kentucky issue with not being on the ballot twice was also a would be problem. Looks like he is getting lost in the wash as far as polling.

With this many candidates operations in Iowa, NH, and SC are huge. Also skipping one or two to get clear of the pack could be key.

33. So much for the "dream" ticket of Walker/Rubio (or Rubio/Walker)! Oh so we can hope.

 

In the March Faux polls, Walker lead with 15%. In April, he barely trailed Rubio by 1 point (12% versus 13%). In May, Bush and Rubio both lead with 13% and Walker had 11. He was tied with Bush at 12% in early June.

In July, Walker had 15% and trailed Trump by only 3%

Now they have Walker tied with Huckabee at 6%

Good news, America really does not want Scott Walker in the White House, but he is a dangerous candidate and can, by hook or crook, end up in the White House regardless of what the majority of voters think.

Trump is the rudest and uncouth, the repubs will absolutely vote for him. Until one of these others gets more racists, trump will lead. He won't get the countries vote though. I'm convinced with him running that a dem will win. The only chance the repubs had was bush because he "seems" more humane.

Is it still about polls ? I'm rather indisposed at current ,it seems the big boss's thought it better I slip out of sight on a well deserved leave of absence, I believe the cover story is vacation. In effect I was given one cold choice ,just drop out of sight.

I 'm really worried I'll get a phone call telling me this is it, your contract is in the trash bin .
I did exactly what I was told to do, I delivered it big time and the whole thing back fired and I think I'm fired.

I fear we have all been Trumped . This is awful. Do you miss me folks ?
This is a living nightmare. !

I just got a text from one of my inside fox people ,it says there is a rumor going around that I'm being looked at for the position of Fox weather girl- that's a demotion -,it's a cheap way of shoving me off, they know I would never do that.

That's a recipe for poor turnout of the base in the general election.

50. I also think turnout in the general election will be lower

According to Wikipedia the turnout for the Presidential election between 1972 and 2012 was between 49%-57.5% with an average of 54.13%. 1

The last three have been fairly high in that range. I expect the turnout will be 50-52%, if it's Clinton vs. Bush below 50%.
