    I doubt it.  I'd like to see him debate though.  It would be fun.

    I don't think he can win, but my fear is he will take votes away from legitimate candidates like Ross Perot did years ago.

    0% of the people(my opinion) claims that Mr. Trump know a lot about the country
    and he would make a good president , where was Donald when Mr. Bush torn our country down, and if he is so knowledgeable about how it should run, and getting our economy back on track, how comes he didn't gave his imput,to help out the citizens) before all of the mess started, some folks because they have money and  self made power think, that's what it cost ....to run a country like the United States, but being the President of America is not a reallity show, it real, it's citizens live involved, not "cut "you are fired.....

    Possible, not probable.  Although, we have had an Actor, a Community Organizer, and a Teacher.  And one of those three did a good job... I'll let you decide which...

    I heard a Fox News report that stated a poll found that 35% of the Reps voters stated they would rather have Obama. I do not see him able to gain a majority of the conservative vote much less get a great deal of the other vote.  Trump has name recognition and some success although that is suspect as to how much he has and how much he is using others' dime. Chuck Norris maybe able to gain a larger share of the conservative vote. Trump's position is well-taken and he is making on questions that should have demanded answers three years ago in the 08 election. I think that is his real reason for stepping up. Those questions need to be on the table and they need a loud voice. Trump is willing to carry the gauntlet if it hurts Obama's chances for re-election. The Reps have stronger ponies in the stall...Huckabee for one, if only he will committ to run. Obama's chest is intimidating and his handlers are attempting to buy the election before things even starts simply by waving the money around.  This causes many on the conservative side to question whether or not they can hold out.  It also puts the Reps on notice that they need to trot out a known pony because they will not have enough funds available to buy name recognition.  Automatically that starts to limit the field on a national scale giving Obama an edge. Given Obama's current ratings in the the mid-30's, he will have to do some things to win even though he has lots of money. His base is lacking severely. He has to win back the independent side who fence sit but of late have looked the other way. To do this, he makes head fakes toward fiscal responsibility always delaying actions until he is safely back in office. His strength at the present may lie with the union vote and the tree-huggers who he has sided with throughout his first term.  That will not be enough.  He need strong ties with the Hispanic which he will shore up through promises of wholesale immigration reform as one of his primary concerns in the second term. He will cite Arizona and the sensitive state of affairs with Mexico as his first term delays. It will not be enough to let him safely coast. So Biden drops and Hilary Clinton comes on board to shore up the liberal base.  This gives the Dems the springboard to launch Hilary for 2016 race and keeps Obama in office.  Then they try to regain some seats in the Congress putting the Reps back into an minimal role and taks the brakes off of the socialism train.  WB
