    If he wanted out, he would say so and walk away. Anyone that knows Trump knows this. He doesn't wishwash.

    Donald Trump Does Not Really Want To Be President

    ...even he knows that he's way over his head, and he's more surprised than anyone that he's doing so well among Republican voters in the polls.

    Trump jumped into the race as a lark, to feed his ego, and perhaps to sell more books and increase his speaking fees. His campaign took off far beyond his own expectations. He's milking it now, because he loves the attention, but he's also scared shitless that he might actually win the GOP nomination. At that point, his ignorance will be even more exposed than it is now.


    Trump doesn't have the patience, temperament, self-discipline or interest in policy issues that it takes to be president. And, deep inside, he knows it better than anyone.

    Trump goes to sleep at night both excited about the next day's media attention and worried that he might actually win, but unsure how to get out of the bind he now finds himself in.

    Fortunately for America, he can't win the presidency, because his appeal is much too narrow. He's doing OK among conservative Republican primary voters, but he can't beat Clinton, Sanders, or Biden in a general election, where his ignorance and arrogance will alienate moderate voters.

    While we have had presidents who stepped on the US Constitution, I don't recall any who did so with their campaign promises.

    Hufferpuffer post. now that's the place I go for all my political insight:rolleyes-41:

    I hope Trump goes Independent myself. tell both of these parties to; go too hell.

    Go Trump.
    you are saying what the America people are thinking, don't think you aren't. Or you would have known by now if it wasn't, and you are STILL holding onto the lead even with all the attacks daily. Trump isn't my first pick, but with the media and attacks by both parties, I'm being PUSHED into his camp that's for sure

    Well, Donald Trump has my vote. Basically because he's tough on many subjects and I think he will make a great president.

    Only 4% are ready to send your preferred Republican to the White House.

    Only at USMB would a representative of the staff be taken seriously for claiming those that oppose Trump are traitors.

    see, what reeeally happened stephanie, is i came up with that insight all on my own, off the top of my head, then as i was rushing, i just did a quick search for anyone who had articulated my thoughts much better than i could...

    so dismiss that source all you want, but rest assured i'm often rolling my eyes right back atcha! :uhoh3:
