Trump Soars in Latest Poll

Donald Trump's lead in the race for the GOP presidential nomination reached an all-time high in a national poll conducted by Gravis Marketing. The survey shows Trump leading the Republican field with a whopping 40 percent, up from 31 percent in Gravis' July poll.

Ben Carson, who placed second in the new poll, had just 13 percent — 27 points behind Trump. Jeb Bush came in third at 10 percent, followed by Ted Cruz at 7 percent, and John Kasich, Carly Fiorina, and Marco Rubio at 5 percent each.

I heard Trump being interviewed on Bloomberg TV this afternoon and when he was asked what his chances were if being elected President he said 25%. He may have underestimated himself.


  1. God help America. You know not what you do. An uncontrolled force unleashed on a nation terrified by the present government, and that is only the Republicans!
    Add this to the TV execution style killings today and you have the makings of Armageddon within your own borders. Surely there is a modicum of common sense left in the country. At least Carson has not yet gone away, you may well need him

    1. When Trump nodded to his security to simply remove a reporter he didn't like, it sent a chill through me. This seems to be what a growing segment of the country wants, IE a person who just silences those he doesn't like.

      I started to watch a story on those TV people who were killed and I had to stop. I literally brought tears to my eyes. We are way to angry and righteous in this country. I can flame and rant with the best of them, but when I step away from the computer, I move on. People may think they are protected by carrying weapons, I think they are fooling themselves.

    2. And this is what our government has given the citizens of the US as a gift:

      On July 24, two burglars allegedly broke in to Marilyn Pharis’ home as she slept. They sexually assaulted and beat her. Pharis, 64, a U.S. Air Force veteran, died in the hospital Aug. 1. It turns out that one of the two men charged for the crime, Victor Aureliano Martinez Ramirez, 29, is an undocumented immigrant against whom Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a detainer in 2014.

      The case seems like Kate Steinle all over again. On July 1, Steinle was strolling on Pier 14 in San
      Francisco with her father, when a bullet pierced her heart. Authorities charged Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a seven-time convicted felon and undocumented immigrant who had been deported five times, with murder. He pleaded not guilty. If the San Francisco sheriff had honored an ICE detainer, Lopez-Sanchez would not have been in San Francisco on July 1.

      The accused 45-year-old shooter, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, admitted to killing Steinle in a jailhouse interview with reporters, saying he was on sleeping pills when he found the gun wrapped in a T-shirt on the ground on July 1.
      The Mexican national pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, as it was revealed the .40 caliber handgun used in the slaying belonged to a federal agent, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
      Federal authorities say Lopez-Sanchez, whose criminal history includes seven prior felony convictions, is an undocumented immigrant who has been deported from the U.S. five times, most recently in 2009.

      An illegal alien brutally murdered Laura Wilkerson’s 18-year-old son in Texas, tied his body up, and then doused him with gasoline before burning him.
      Police say RoKrentz, whose family has been ranching in southern Arizona since 1907, was gunned down early Saturday morning by an illegal immigrant while out on his ATV tending to fences and water lines on the family's 34,000-acre cattle ranch.
      On October 19, 2003, the 29 year old, ex-quarterback for the University of Colorado football team, John Hesler, was driving his Honda Accord on Interstate 76 in Colorado when it was clipped by an SUV sending it across a median and into the path of a pickup truck, causing a horrific accident. The driver and passenger of the SUV that caused the accident fled the scene and haven't been found. The Colorado State Patrol told Hesler's family that they most likely are in Mexico.
      Police chief of the Needville Independent School District, Chief Ernest V. Mendoza lost his life when he was hit head on by drunken illegal alien Guillermo Paniagua Paniagua who veered into his lane. Paniagua had four previous drunken driving convictions. Paniagua fled the scene on foot but was captured latter. Mendoza, a 25-year-veteran of law enforcement, leaves behind a wife and four children.
      Min Soon Chang, a freshman from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, was killed by drunk driving illegal alien Jorge Humberto Hernandez-Soto, who hit him while going 100 MPH the wrong way on the highway. Hernadez-Sot had been previously deported to his native Mexico 17 times. That is not a typo.

      Cheryl Ceran, 47, and two of her children, 15-year-old Ian and 7-year-old Julianna were killed on Christmas Eve by drunk driving illegal alien Carlos Rodolfo Prieto, 24, who ran a red light and slammed into their car. Also injured in the crash were Cheryl Ceran's husband, Gary Ceran, 45, their daughter, Clarissa, 19, and a son, Caleb, 12. Prieto had at least two other drunken driving arrests and did not have a license.

      Kelly Bergen, 25, a teacher, was crushed between two potato trucks, an accident caused by an illegal alien driving without a license or insurance.

      Deputy Loren Lilly, an 18 year veteran of the Cobb County, GA, police department was killed Christmas Eve morning on his way to work when an illegal alien swerved into his lane. The driver,

      Joel Camacho Perea, faces charges of hit and run, failure to maintain lane and driving without a license.

    3. Marine Corporal Brian Mathews, 21, and his girlfriend Jennifer Bower, 24, were killed by a drunk illegal alien Eduardo Raul Morales-Soriano who slammed into their car when it was stopped at a traffic light. Corporal Mathews was on leave, after just returning from duty in Iraq. Morales-Soriano had a blood-alcohol level that was four times the legal limit.

      20 year old Natalie Housand was killed when illegal alien Jesus Garcia Lopez hit her car while going 100 MPH, driving drunk. Amazingly, after the head-on collision, Lopez fled the scene.

      Donna and Sean Wilson of Juliet Tennessee, were killed by illegal alien Gustavo Reyes Garcia who had been, arrested 14 times in the previous five years prior to when he ran into and killed them, again driving while intoxicated. Garcia had previously been arrested 5 times on DUIs.

      Tricia Ann Taylor, 17, lost both her legs above the knees when she was pinned against a wall by a drunken illegal alien with seventeen prior violations who hit her while drag racing.

      Ryan Ostendorf, a 28 year old paramedic, who was also a Kansas University student and who dreamed of becoming a doctor, was killed by illegal alien Victor Anzua-Torresa who had ignored an order to receive treatment after his previous drunken-driving conviction. Anzua-Torresa had also been previously deported in 2000 and been arrested for several other offenses, including possession of drug paraphernalia.

      5-year-old Felix Leon was killed in a hit and run accident by illegal alien Carlos Jaramillo.

      James F. Rogers Jr., 18, of North Jackson, TN was killed by Luis Oscar Garcia, a Mexican who had been living in the U.S. without a green card for three years. Garcia ran a red light. In addition to the vehicular homicide and DUI charges, Garcia faces counts of driving without a license, registration or proof of insurance. When police did a check on his license plate, it did not come back under his name.

      Joshua Morrow, 4, and his uncle, Ronald Bishop were killed by an illegal alien who left the scene of the accident.

      Christopher Shackleford, 19, Julieanne Pascoe, 18, and Kelli Bourgeois, 18, were all killed in
      Marietta, Georgia, by an illegal alien drunk driver. He did not have a valid driver's license or insurance but did have a blood alcohol level at twice the legal limit.

      Brandon Haley, 31, was killed while riding his bicycle in a hit and run by illegal alien Lazardo Lobaton.

      The Marti family, pictured here during a happy moment that no longer exists. Sean, just 24 years old, and his daughter Sage, 5 months old, were killed by a drunk illegal alien who was driving the wrong way on Highway 84 in Idaho. Natalie Marti was in a coma for two weeks after the head-on crash, spent two months in the hospital, and has suffered brain damage from a traumatic head wound.

      Chicago Police Officer Michael Gordon lost his life to a drunken illegal alien driver. Officer Gordon was in the driver's seat of his squad car when it was struck by Luis Calle, a Guatemalan, whose blood alcohol level was 0.177, twice the legal limit.

      Helen Hughes, 22, Jennifer Carter, 18, and Hughes' stepbrother, 16-year-old Ben Leonard were all killed by an illegal alien, who allegedly was driving drunk, and already had a long record of crime in the United States.

      22-year-old Amy Kortlang was killed by an illegal alien driving without a license and while drunk. The illegal alien driver had been previously deported, barely six months prior to causing the accident.


    4. Oakland Police Officer Will Seuis was killed on his ride home by an illegal alien. A sixteen-year veteran of the Police Department, Officer Seuis was remembered at his funeral as a hard-working cop who had received 33 letters of appreciation from citizens, including one from a motorist he had ticketed. The illegal alien had a long history of traffic convictions.

      Peggy Keller, dean of distance education at Yakima Valley Community College, was killed by a twice deported illegal alien who was driving under the influence of methamphetamines.
      19 year old Travis Smith was killed when he was struck head-on by a vehicle driven by an illegal alien who was transporting four other illegal aliens to Pennsylvania.

      Six year old Annie Cumpston was killed in a hit-and-run accident in downtown Baltimore by a truck driven by illegal alien Guillermo Diaz when it veered into the crosswalk as she and her family were leaving the circus. When Diaz was arrested, he did not have a driver's license, the tags on the truck were expired and his blood-alcohol level was 0.07 percent. Diaz had been in the United States illegally for four years doing construction work. He received 10 years in prison but is eligible for parole in just two years.

    5. Lou
      Your emphasis is all wrong and it illustrates the obvious problem that there are too many guns on the streets.
      Rough count gives 30 something homicides in your posts committed by illegals. This represents 0.01 percent of Government gun stats released. Even this is too many but to dodge the arguments by riding your pet theme of illegal immigrants to make an argument is misleading. I agree with your position on illegals.I will never agree to the concept that illegals are the ones responsible for the carnage. Now, quoted from an official survey on our National TV news tonight 51% of poll respondents cited the second as the reason not to change gun laws in your country. I can think of nothing further to say.

      Cheers friend from Aussie

    6. Thanks Lou. You reoriented me to accept that homicide is something to be upset about only when it involves illegals. When it highlights the cult of violent revenge that permeates this country, this should be overlooked.

  2. It sent a chill through you?

    It was a press conference not an interview. The one reporter felt he had the right to dominate the affair just because he was from Univision and as one of many reporters was exceedingly rude to every other person in that room ... including the person who ALLOWED him access in the first place. He was asked several times to desist and would not allow Trump to call on any other reporter there. By the way, what wasn’t reported by most media is that when Trump had finished answering all the rest of the reporter’s questions, he allowed Ramos back in to the news conference, allowed his questions and had a discussion with him that no other reporter got.

    Your president does this kind of stuff all the time but he doesn’t need to argue, he has secret service to give icy looks at anyone who creates a problem while he has the podium. I think that regardless Trumps position on immigration, this was a Univison setup to paint Trump as a hater of Latinos rather than someone with limited time dealing with a jerk.

    LOS ANGELES — A writer for a small Georgia newspaper who wanted to give President Barack Obama a letter was forcibly removed from a press area near Air Force One on Thursday shortly before he arrived at the airport.

    Airport security officers carried the woman away by the feet and arms as she protested her removal. She was then allowed to leave. She said the letter she had written was opposing gay marriage.


    After a pool reporter with 'pen and pad' access to President Obama shot video of a Democratic fundraiser protest from her cell phone, the White House banned her from covering future select Obama events.


    June 25, 2015
    "Shame on you," he told his heckler, who was protesting deportations under the Obama administration.
    Obama responded, "Listen you're in my house ... it's not respectful."
    The interruption persisted, however, and Obama asked for the heckler to be removed from the East Room.

    That is only three of about a dozen times this president has done the same thing.

    Regardless of how you feel about Trump, this reporter was a rude little man that disrupted and even that did not belong to him.... I don’t recall you being up in arms over HR347 that this president signed without objection over the words in the constitution stating that "Congress shall make no law... abridging...the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”

    HR347 sent a chill through me....

    1. Most laws created after the signing of the constitution probably give you chills. HR 347 is a bad bill that passed with overwhelming support of both parties. I guess, judging from a previous comment by you, I can't be bothered by this Trump thing because I didn't stand up 2011 and scream about HR 347? Further, are you saying you dislike a bill that criminalizes protest but you are okay with silencing protest as long as it is done by someone not receiving secret service protection?

      By design, protests are meant to disrupt our life and not let us proceed as if nothing is wrong. I didn't like it when the Black Lives Matter group silenced Bernie Sanders twice, but that is what protest is supposed to do. As for the guy removed, his account of the story is that there was a brief gap where Trump didn't call on someone, and he stood up. Trump should receive some credit for allowing the guy back and taking his question as that is something that few candidates will do.

    2. I have a problem with all laws that don’t conform to the constitution but you already knew that. As with ‘context’ you are very selective much like the progressives that you tend to vote for. Either the guy was a reporter, one of many at a press conference in which he played the ass or he was a protester, one representing a company Trump is currently in litigation with, in which case he was removed but given an unprecedented opportunity to resume his protest after the adults in the room got done with their business.

      This is just so much hack where again context gets distorted for political advantage. A rather obvious resent distortion of ‘context’ are the comments made by Trump about illegal’s in specific and Mexicans in general when he said:

      “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they're telling us what we're getting."

      Did he say that all Mexicans were bad?... No. Did he point out in the audience people he presumably excluded? Yes( Listen to the video here: )... Did he specifically stay that he presumed some to be good?... Yes... did he qualify his remarks by saying that his information came directly from people who guard the border... Yes.

      As for HR437... if you believe in the ability of people to speak out... if you believe that people should have the right to disrupt government to get their message across then you might should get upset over laws such as that.

    3. The context here was answering your post, wherein you twisted reporters and HR 347 together when they are actually kind of two different things. You raise a fair enough point when you focus on just this guy, is he a reporter, or a heckler? Given that he did come back and ask his question and there was a lengthy discussion, I'll consider him more of a reporter.

      Without a doubt, even as a reporter, he has an agenda and is asking a question that his rather large audience wants an answer to, just like people from Fox, just like people from MSNBC. In today's media world, this is hardly unusual. Kind of interesting you also use an example of Obama being heckled over deportations, I din't think Obama deported anyone.

      As for your last para, I have genuine mixed feelings about that. I believe protestors have a right to be heard and have a right to protest the government and at times, even a right to disrupt government. I don't, however, believe they have the right indefinitely shut down government. People vote and make a choice, which is also a form of voicing their opinion. I didn't like a lot of shit that was passed when the Republicans held all three houses, but I also was pretty blunt in voice opposition to Reid shutting everything down. Boehner could be getting a lot more done right now, but he won't because he's basically handed his gavel and his balls to the Tea Party, which arguably is just a protest group who is unaffected by HR 347.

    4. It was never my intention to compare the two other than the fact that being taken back by one should have some resonance with the other when considering this rather generic statement.

      "This seems to be what a growing segment of the country wants, IE a person who just silences those he doesn't like. "

  3. For what it's worth I played golf with in North Jersey with a couple of New Yorkers who know Trump. Both democrats, they don't particularly care for the man and hold anomosity towards some of his hard ball business dealings.

    Both said that what Trump is promoting soarly needs airing. Both said they would vote for the guy. One of the men, a Jewish fellow, held particular animus towards the Obama - Hillary dealings regarding Iran - Isreal.

    The democrats have a big problem here. A real big problem.

    1. Trump has made one thing abundantly clear, when you have enough money to buy the biggest bullhorn, you effectively silence everyone else. One of my bigger gripes with Trump, and with Republicans in general, is that he and they perpetuate magical thinking in the base. IE they say that on day one, they will walk in, tear up everything they don't like and start from scratch. it just doesn't work that way. Ironically, I think Trump is much more of a realist than the rest of them who cannot utter a peep that is not in line with the thinking of their money people. This is refreshing. Some of his other schtick though is getting old, like his now standard line to say, "I love this guy, he's a hard working, but he's a motherfucker and he needs to be taken down." That's becoming his approach to talking about just about everyone.

    2. Does he have the biggest bullhorn or is he just more effective at getting his message out. Yes his name gives him some status and he knows just how to jerk media’s chain so they keep coming back but his campaign staff is 10th that of Hillary’s, he has only a minimal volunteer organization built and only he and one other person manage his campaign. (However one of his people says that the folks calling to support his campaign are overwhelming... “It’s like drinking from a firehose”. ) He has thus far rejected TV advertising as expensive and unnecessary. He has spent 13 times less than Hillary who is suppose to be the democratic shoe in. He has no superpacs and accepts no money from corporate donors yet he has spent less than any other major candidate running bar the likes of Fiorina and O’Malley. He talks alot about his billions but he isn’t spending them. So I would suppose you could excuse him for letting the press and folks like you spread the attack ads his competitors will have to pay big bucks to air... most effective.

      He’s getting attention by telling home truths and while I wouldn’t want his finger anywhere near the nuclear football, I sure like the way he is calling attention to this immigration problem. He has said that he will release policy positions on other pressing issues within the next month... I look forward to the debate that it will generate... got popcorn.

    3. You don't want him as POTUS either, but when I offer some criticism it's the same as carrying the water of an attack ad? Not sure I get that.

    4. You implied that he has bought and paid for his audience with his considerable wealth, I was just pointing out that every one of the speculative front runners on the Republican side has spent more than he. Hillary, the sweetheart(now that will give one a chill) of the Democratic Party, as outspent him by a huge margin... I don’t see the difference in you saying that he is buying his attention and Team Hillary saying it on TV..... Whether I like him or not, given that the facts seem to show that he’s not spending all that much... sounds like a fiction based attack to me.

    5. Fair enough, I really didn't mean that the precise way it came across. Whether Trump is spending his own money or not to get the attention he is getting is a little bit beside the point. Without his money and notoriety, he would be white Ben Carson, which is to say, just another guy launching conservative talking points who is "an outsider". This is my typical liberal shit I suppose, but to me there is the concrete literal interpretation, and then there is the functional effect that was more my point. Whether Trump is literally buying his current press coverage, or living off of his past endeavors and brand recognition, his wealth and status have put him in a very unique position. He can hop onto one of his Trump air toys at any time, go where he wants and not really worry about what it costs. Is he really saying something so drastically different than the others? I don't really think so, but he says it so bombastically and with such over the top self promotion, the media, who are attracted to any shiny object, simply cannot help themselves from covering it. Trump is a Republican Madonna right now who well understands their is no such thing is bad publicity.

      As for Hillary, she ain't my savior and the only thing she will likely get from me will be a reluctant vote in contrast to whatever Dr. Strangelove the Republicans put up. Quite honestly, I really haven't seen much of anything from Hillary because I honestly don't care what she has to say right now.

    6. "Trump is a Republican Madonna right now who well understands their is no such thing is bad publicity. "

      This is precisely why Trump is getting the attention that he is. He is loud and if he sees it effectual, will call someone a name. Trump is managing to do to the Republican Party what needs to happen in to both political parties.

      Ron Paul was quite viciously sidelined by the Republican process and being the kind of man he is, very rarely said a bad word. He had good policy issues that differentiated him from the rest and should have been discussed. Ron Paul with far less money could have been the same kind of candidate as Trump and gotten the same attention. Money or not Trump knows how to get attention in a room and he is using it to full effect.

      Where he finally melts down is when he shows his position on other policy issues. Like I have said, he is IMO, a Clinton Democrat. Then other Republicans will then have the ammunition they need. Immigration and the way this president has handled it is a pretty hot issue and trying to challenge Trump on it is futile. I can guarantee that across the political spectrum, this president has, in a negative way, surprised many people over his vision for the words ‘Immigration Reform’.

      You do raise a point that I must check out though. Does the cost of using personal assets get estimated in campaign costs? I know than loaning his own campaign cash would but does the costs of using his own aircraft?.... I assumed that it did and that may indeed be a bad assumption.

      One point I would like to make with regard to his use of his personal wealth. While entering and winning a political contest should cost far less than it does their by allowing a far broader spectrum to participate, I find that since money is being spent, you will get a clearer sense of who a person is if they spend their own money as opposed to those who peddle for popularity.

    7. Paul had another intrinsic "wealth" though in his name. His father built the Paul "brand". Here and there, I've seen Paul actually take some pragmatic stances, and my gut feeling is that this pragmatism is not appreciated. Still, while Trump makes the point of the rest of the crowd being so owned, he is also sort of making the point that only those who are rich enough to not need contributions should be allowed to run for office. Not sure I like that idea.

      it's funny to call Trump a Clinton democrat, because Clinton Democrat is just another name for moderate Republican. ;>

    8. Yep. Trump is pushing immigration reform, but he is also pushing a tax increase on the very rich (including himself) and status quo for Social Security. These last two are all very popular with a majority of voters while being rejected by the right wing of the Republican Party. So Trump is wildly popular in the polls because he has something for everyone. The Republican leaders understand this but seem to be in a quandary about how to react.

    9. Trump said he will come out with his policy positions within the month... I think they are waiting for real facts to engage... he is the undisputed champ at name calling, only facts can back him into a corner.

    10. Mike
      I don’t disagree about Rand.. He is, at least among his Ron’s following, squandering the capital that his father gave him... I was talking about Ron's failings in the last election. Had he been a bit more outspoken and critical of the Republican machine, perhaps he would have changed the dialog. My point is that regardless of money the squeaky wheel will get the attention. Cruz is a case in point. Now you may not like the way he thinks but the fact is, he has made his name strictly on his own. First term senators generally live in obscurity and receive little national notoriety unless they have party backing... which is a serious bet of ‘intrinsic’ wealth.

      “it's funny to call Trump a Clinton democrat, because Clinton Democrat is just another name for moderate Republican. ;>”

      Yea... and Bernie Sanders is really a libertarian...

    11. I'm not saying that I've totally bought into the Trump magical mystery tour but here are a few other strengths he has.

      Being the ultimate deal maker he will cuss out then reengage someone he knows he has to sit down with. Someone he needs. Witness his reinviting the Univision anchor to ask questions after tossing him out of the room earlier. He set the parameters and then discussed points from a position of strength. DEALS.

      His long history of working with unions as a contractor in NYC and elsewhere. He knows he needs them, thus he will deal with them. I think he will syphon off a large percentage of union workers and leaders who after all deal in the area of employment. He will create jobs simply by energizing and reorganizing everything. He is the ultimate energizer bunny. Unions will of course be a large part of building his Mexican barrier. JOBS.

      On a similar note he has dealt at length with the European Union in the area of environmental protection. He has made deals to produce economy in far flung places like the Northern coast of Scotland. Jobs and money talk. People vote economy. He produces economy. JOBS.

      Miss America. I know Max and ric will laugh at this but he's well known for producing the pageant. His lawsuit with Univision will keep this in front of middle America women voters. War on Women? These women enjoy the pageant and traditional values. ACES.

      At the end of the day Hispanics came here for JOBS. The economy softens they return South. Jobs trump (pardon the pun) any ill feelings that this voting segment may have. JOBS.

      College kids. Out of work college graduates. College grads still living at home at thirty years of age because of college debt. They do a lot of TV watching and they know Trump from The Apprentice." Many of these kids long to be the next apprentice in thousands of differing employment situations. JOBS.

      What did Bill Clinton used to say? It's the economy stupid. JOBS.

      TRUMP = JOBS

    12. "These women enjoy the pageant and traditional values. "
      The women I am in school with, who are working on their master's degrees to become health care providers, are insulted by the pageant. Your post has other points to genuinely consider, but this is not one of them. That Geico commercial with the pageant contestant operating the excavator sums it up well.

      As to his being the negotiator supreme, it's kind of amazing that the hard core types are actually applauding this. His power play tactics of insult, engage, insult, engage and so on may work in the business world, but it remains to be seen how well that stuff works elsewhere. I don't understand this fascination that people have with believing any president will create jobs, it just doesn't work that way. So is Trump going to run his Trumpire while being POTUS? Like Mick said, so far Trump is saying something for everybody, which means he has correctly identified a host of issues that obviously, neither party has addressed until now. He hasn't really explained why those problems are there or how he will fix them. I honestly appreciated his point that you can't just belt out 50 positions and never waver on them because you need to be flexible. I don't think conservatives are going to keep being so generous on this point.

      TS, this may be perhaps the best summation of Trump I've seen yet,
      "Trump said he will come out with his policy positions within the month... I think they are waiting for real facts to engage... he is the undisputed champ at name calling, only facts can back him into a corner."

    13. "I don't understand this fascination that people have with believing any president will create jobs, it just doesn't work that way."

      This is an actual jaw dropping comment Mike... Of course you don’t really believe that because if Republicans would just get out of the way so that congress could pass just pass one more regulation, jobs will be abundant... and if congress will not act, then the president will create those jobs.. damn it! ;-}

      "TS, this may be perhaps the best summation of Trump I've seen yet..."

      One caveat to that... they best have the facts because if they don’t, he will eat them for lunch and he will continue to rise in the poles....
