    For all you Trump believers, and yes I am one of you, do you believe he can win the office of President of the United States of America if he continues to pick "petty" fight with everybody and their brother?

    The most recent dust up(s) have caused me to take pause with supporting him, and if he continues to demonstrate the inability to stay on message, I will be voting for one of the two lesser known candidates. In other words, never Hillary, and slowly becoming, never Trump.

    Is Trumps immature behavior turning you off to him as your candidate for GOP presidential candidate?

    40-45% of the public will vote for Hillary, no matter what she does. If she was tried and convicted of treason before the election, they would still vote for her. They're just that stupid and uncaring.

    What will give Hillary the election is all the pouty faced so called conservatives that have their feelings hurt because they didn't get the candidate they wanted. Well, neither did I. But I'm not going to sulk in the corner or do anything at all to help her get elected.

    I'll hold my nose and vote for Trump. He may surprise everyone. She will surprise no one. We know exactly what she will do.The future of the country is at stake and will never recover from a Clinton presidency.

    Liberals like Hillary are dead set on doing away with, or "modifying", freedom of speech and freedom of religion and the right to bear arms. A couple of Supreme Court nominees will do the trick.

    Carpo, you pretty much summed up my thoughts on the matter, particularly with that comment in bold.:Thumbsup

    I don't know how much method Trump has to his madness, but he's a very successful businessman (judging by his status as a multi-billionaire) and he's polling against Hillary at last as well as most of the other Republicans in the primary would have.

    He has picked a good VP. He has produced a list of good judges. He's better than Hillary on every issue.

    Welcome to the Light, RD.

    His behavior is mostly reinforcement of my belief that he would be disastrous.

    Will they NEVER LEARN!?

    Just look and see how many threads are about Trump here at the BB!

    The same is happening in the press, he is everywhere being touted for the very things that the average American believes but suppresses in his/her heart and mind.

    Is the Donald that cunning to purposely cause all these mini scandals to get his name world-wide not just causing a national buzz but a global buzz.

    Even our Emperor and wannabe queen are chattering away waxing eloquent about him.

    IMO, He is saying and doing what the AVERAGE American harbors in their heart but would not be so bold to do as he is doing.

    Billions of free advertising.

    I disagree, if you're talking about that Khan thing - Trump should hammer him on it relentlessly.

    This worked for Obama against Joe the Plumber - Obama and his MSM just destroyed the man when he challenged him. And this Khan person is even less charismatic than Joe, and he's a self-righteous Muslim to boot.

    What I am saying 777 is that they may well have played right into Trump's hand.

    All along the way Trump has blurted out boorish remarks e.g. John McCain - not a hero.
    OK, it wasn't the remark made in bad taste but that he badmouthed McCain an establishment RINO (although I did research and found only one voting record of liberal support by McCain) that attracted people to him.

    When he mocked the man with the affliction of a deformity again he may have been subliminally mocking the administration for another exploitation of the unfortunate in life.

    Trump is not so much denigrating Kahn and his fallen hero son but that they were exploited for political gain by the administration which is the attraction.

    There is another factor with the Kahn debacle but I don't want go to deeply into it - enough to say that the Donald may very well be capitalizing on the religious prejudice which is apparently abounding in America.

    I am beginning to believe that Trump knows exactly what he is doing by this politically incorrect storm of offending statements. They have circled the globe and he has received billions (perhaps trillions) of free press coverage.

    No sooner does the dust clear than he creates another.

    Our emperor and wannabe queen won't be quiet about him so this news and the Trump name even reaches the ears of the aristocratic elite.

    You are wise in your insight! Name recognition, be it bad, god or indifferent is more important then a well delivered message! We don't always buy a burger because of the food critic's reviews, but rather by the advertising and word of mouth! In fact, Madison Avenue once said that the least expensive, most effective form of advertising is word of mouth. Trump is using his mouth to spread his name! When you go in the booth and pull the lever, it may come down to name recognition and not the message that has been spun!

    The GOP is concerned that Trump is not taking advantage of opportunities opened by Hillary and Obama, most recently the ransom and her being investigated by the FBI for corruption in the Clinto foundation! It sure seems that even the truth is not swaying the vote and opinion of those who love her, so why not steal the spotlight from her with outrageous headlines and press ramblings and rant! If he wins, he will go down as the master of running a campaign on the cheap, and the sleazy!
