How's Donald Trump working for you know

    Regardless of advice from his own campaign staff and the RNC, Trump is freestyling, like the rap artist!!!  In the meantime, his numbers are going down, down, down.  If you have been loyal to him over the past year, compare that to how loyal he is being to you!

      Well Diane he has not put the US at security risk or continue to lie about something everyone knows for a fact he did. He has not taken money from Muslim  terrorists or gotten rich selling favors for huge donations and all his ex friends who know his secrets are not being murdered or committing suicide around him so I guess we just put up with his big mouth because he doesn't yet know how to act like a politician.  He will learn to tone it down. Politicians never learn or stop lying so I hope he never goes that far. I think he and his talented family will do great things for America and in fact I believe he is our very last hope. God made none of us perfect, did He?

          Because they want it done does not mean it will be done and it sure looks pretty fishy to me that the Republicans want Hillary Clinton knowing that is who they will get if she can stay mentally stable long enough to make it to the election! I think the Republicans need to start listening to the people instead of being afraid Trump will do for America just what he says and keep out terrorists and bring jobs and build up our military so we can look like America again. We really don't care what they think about him.
          Also CBS and the other networks are all in Hillary's pocket so you cannot believe all you read or hear there. Whether people think they are biased or not FoxNews will tell you the truth and you will know the news as it happens...like immediately....not next month....There are one or two other places but I like Fox and their variety of reporters and shows.

              Just talk I think and news to excite. Glad I heard it though because I can tell you I will be one surprised person if Hillary does any debates. I honestly think she is not mentally or physically capable and I think all voting for her better take a good look at that vice president she would have because he would become the president and I have heard some bad stuff on him too!

          @ Jackie & Diane, from the look of things it seems that Clinton will win.  Clinton is a strategist while Trump clearly isn't.  Trump doesn't have a political filter.  In order to be a good politician, one has to have a political filter & be a strategist.  Trump, as a New Yorker, should KNOW this, c'mon now.   Yes, be honest in one's political statements but also be smart.   We can say what we want about Clinton but Clinton is.....SMART......give the devil the due.  By the way, I am no fan of Hillary & I identify myself as a Liberal Democrat but I am disenchanted w/Obama.  The Democratic Party in my estimation has become the Leftist Party.

            Hillary may be a strategist and a good politician but she sure is not for the American people or America.  I elected she will do everything she can to take what freedom the American people have away from them.  She wants complete control.

    Be nice if all the anti- Trumpers  got together  and  finally realized that he is the alternative to business as usual in politics , he is "untrained " in politi speak  , he is unscathed by  the usual games   , not included  in the  graft and corruption of the GOP  and the  DNC   together , They are in fact collectively conspiring against him !

    People , he is the anti- establishment ----if you don't want Trump  then you want political business as usual .   Vote for Hillary if you want to continue the downhill spiral of our economy ,  high unemployment ,the diplomacy  of    pay for play of the State Dept  and the Clinton foundation ! 

    Americans have to be blind to continue watching and believing this media war against Trump and the propping up Hillary's total and complete incompetence  as a potential  leader !

        Whenever rightwing folks lose there is always excuse, blame the media.

        Whether they like it or not, the country is changing in many ways unpalatable to them. The trend is clearly visable from any poll from Fox News to MSNBC. One thing in common regards to them all is that the electoral trend is clearly moving in one direction, and it's not in favor of Trump.

          Reality is reality, Cred.   The numbers are obvious, Trump is FAILING & falling.....falling.  Trump has reached the point of NO RETURN.   He has a serious case of foot in mouth disease.  In order to be a good politician, one has to be smart & have political discernment i.e. a political filter.  One really can't say the first thing that comes to one's mind.  Young children DO THIS, not supposed adults.

            Self control and loyalty are the things that slay me here.

            Trump has very capable advisors, dedicated surrogates, and many thousands of loyalists.  Why can't he do what it takes to win rather than go off on tangents?

            He said he would change for the general and then said he wouldn't.  If he had followed the script, he possibly could have won.  Especially with all of the stuff Russia is serving on HRC.

            We need leaders who are loyal to what's best for America ... kind of like the captain on a ship.  Make sure that everybody gets into a lifeboat safely before ....

            This has been interesting to watch, the GOP message has been effectively and hopelessly garbled by its messenger.

            Conservative Utah polls with weaker support for the GOP nominee than ever this season. Utah is not part of the demographic trends that allow the Democrats to now mix it up in states previously off limits like Georgia and Arizona. Trump is such the antithesis of the beliefs of the Mormon faith, how could Mormon Utah vote for a playboy in good conscience, even if he is Republican? He married one of its centerfolds. He is a man devoid of any moral core or center. That is easily seen.

            With Clinton's high negatives, the GOP and its rank and file should have strategically taken advantage of it.  But,alas,they put forth a candidate that makes Hillary C. appear reasonable in comparison.

            Short of a disastrous gaffe from the Clinton camp, Clinton may end up sweeping away the Electoral College and the popular vote in a way not seen since 1984.

            I think that Trump is simply committing political suicide and preparing the suicide note in advance. A 'Jim Jones' style, having his precious flock acknowledge in advance that they will lose because Clinton has  corrupted the ENTIRE electoral process. He and his followers drinking their laced kool-aid, knowing that they fought the good fight but resign themselves to have lost out to treachery beyond their control. Trump can never explain his loss gracefully, his ego won't permit it.

      Trump may not have experience as a politician but he is not a corrupted one yet.  Most politician do become corrupt because they become greedy and they want to stay in office.  To stay in office they must do favors and paybacks to the crooked backers.

        He was obviously not on our radar.  I received the advertisement for Trump University some years back.  Thank God I couldn't afford.  I can only afford cheap scams. 

        ahorse, he talks pretty silly to me except when he is talking about Putin.  I see Putin has woven the Turkish president in.  You don't think he is serious when he talks about his good friend Putin who thinks he (Trump) is a genius?

        Isn't there somebody we all can be happy with?  Oh no!  Wait!  That would be the anti-Christ.

        I thought Huckabee would have made a good president. No?
        I wonder what his sins were. Oh, he was a protestant? ("ordained Southern Baptist minister noted for his evangelical views, a musician, and a public speaker," according to Wikipedia.) He was born in '55.

          For what good they are, I'd say all politicians are reality tv stars also.

          Think about it. Reality tv is not really reality tv. It's scripted, just what they want you to see is shown. The participants are paid astronomically,  considering the amount of work they do and they quickly become completely out of touch with reality soon after their show gets national syndication.

          Oh. Also. They've always said politics is acting for ugly people and reality tv fits that definition also.

            I'm sorry, LtoL, but I feel you are rationalizing your choice in the extreme. Whatever you think of Hillary, her achievements go way beyond the trivial accomplishments of a reality TV star.

              Live to Learnposted 3 months ago in reply to this

              Her achievements? I don't know that being married to a president is an achievement. Being elected senator in a state she moved to in order to run for the position? Not an accomplishment, unless you call winning an election an accomplish worthy of calling it such. Her record in the senate is, in my opinion, lackluster. Not an accomplishment. Her tenure as Secretary of State wasn't anything to be proud of. So, not an accomplishment either. Being elected as the Democratic nominee for president was mired in scandal. So, not an accomplishment.

              Sounds to me as if you are rationalizing also. I do understand. Considering the choices we've been given we all have to work to find a reason to support either of them.

    I just looked at the latest polls. The spread doesn't appear to be insurmountable.

    Trump's not a politician. It doesn't take an exceptionally large brain to understand why the Republican party is against him. They are licking their wounds from not being able to field a candidate the populace could support.

    Of course the media is going to do everything in their power to spin it to appear the Trump is unelectable. I don't think there is a segment of the power grid which wants things changed and Trump's popularity is not a testament to Trump's likeability.He's an ass. His staying power hasn't been validation of his ability. He suffers serious foot in mouth, at best; some impediment to intelligence, at worst. His rise is simply an indication of the level of frustration the average American is experiencing with  government which has not only fallen out of step with its constituency but one which doesn't care.

    Unless an alternative presents itself I'll back the jerk. Hillary is completely unacceptable.

    Ahhhh people actually are manipulated and mind controlled by the 'polls.' This is a sad time for the U.S.A. and it will get much worse. Don't believe everything you see, or hear because all medias and polls are controlled by the Government to sway the minds of the people...and that includes other countries who are owned by the elite. Don't fall into the snares which are set up purposely. The only one who is loyal to a person is the one who calls upon the Lord.
