So Trump has won New Hampshire even though he is (in my opinion) anti-women, anti-Latino, anti-Muslim, anti-disability, anti-black, anti-enviroment, pro-guns, pro-wall and pro-torture (waterboarding).
On health issues he would replace “Obama Care” with “The Free Market Doesnt Give A Damn” (my words not his).
He seems to have a remarkably tenuous understanding of mathematics when it comes to statistics.
In Scotland he objected to an offshore windfarm because it could be seen from his golf course. When he lost the case he threatened to stop investing in Scotland. So he is prepared to bully and behave with some petulance and bad grace.
And people want to vote for him for the Republican candidate.
I just don’t get it. I really don’t.

No like this has to be a joke. Can people really not see how this is hitler-esque propaganda? I’m trying to convince myself that he’s going to be disqualified at the last minute on some technicality that he and his team were fully aware of and that this is a gross publicity stunt. I am aghast that this human shit show has supporters.

I personally am still waiting for the punch line.
He is ridiculous.

I hadn’t seen the wind farm thing. What is it with conservatives and finding wind farms so aesthetically unappealing?! I thought that was only Australian politicians!!!!

Last night was like a bad dream. I was watching the polls and listening to the speeches, and my heart was sinking with each minute. If it’s Trump vs Bernie I’ll vomit. There is no good candidate at all, everybody comes out with crazy ideas and unrealistic expectations. I foresee a very troubled future.

IMO, Trump’s numbers illustrate how fed up people have become with the feds, as opposed to how much they want to put up with him.

I thought it was a joke when I saw the news this morning. It scares me that he has this much support.

The tea party come home to roost. The republicans have gone nuts. It’s beyond embarrassing.

Most Americans don’t actually support him and understand the awful racist, misogynist, etc. that he is. The few people I know who like him only like him because he speaks his mind (though I think they must be ignoring what he’s actually saying, because good God).

Is there anyone on this forum that supports Trump? I’m not trying to start something, but I’d really like to chat with one of his supporters. I’d like to know what is it about him that makes him appealing. Is it just that people want change, and hes the face of change? Or do they truly support his policies?

Trump is a response from all of the fear-mongering of the “evil, terrible government” keeping the people down. What gets me the most about this mentality is that many of these individuals do not see that a great deal of America’s problems are continuing to stay in the house and senate for decades due to complete and utter apathy to who is running the legislative branch. They also seem to believe that a president Trump is going to be able to do all of the things he says he can do. They seem to forget that he will need congressional approval for many of his ideas and since even his own party seems to despise him, he’s not going to be able to do much of anything.
Just ask Obama how much he was able to get done without congressional approval.
