    For OBVIOUS Reasons, The VAST Majority of Americans are NOT Voting for "Delusional Donald".

    A "TSUNAMI Wave of DEFEAT" is BUILDING Against Trump & Republicans ~ Who would have thought that Promising to LOWER Wages, SEXUALLY Assaulting Women, Demeaning Women, Insuting Women, Mocking OUR Disabled, Insulting OUR Military, Insulting OUR P.O.W.s, De-Frauding OUR Seniors, Conspiring with COMMUNISTs & Dishonoring the United States of AMERICA as "Delusional Donald" has done, would RESULT in his Pseudo-Campaign "Crumbling to the GROUND" ???

      I thought the question was "WHY would ANYONE even vote for Donald Trump at THIS juncture?" NOT why wouldn't anyone vote for Trump. But nice look into AP's alternate reality, you're always a hoot and a half how you never really answer any question.

    1. They HATE all things Hillary Clinton.
    2. They are fed up with politics as usual/the establishment.
    3. They want to "shake things up" with a {wild card}.
    4. They genuinely agree with most of Donald Trumps stances.
    5. They believe things will get worse if Hillary is president.
    6. They want to turn the clock back on social issues.
    7. They are financially doing worse than they were in 2008
    8. They really believe these are the "end days" for the U.S.A
    9. Trump will bring back mfg jobs despite robotics and technology
    10. They love his personality and get a kick out of him NOT being PC.
    Last but not least a lot of his supporters repeat his question:
    "What do you have to lose?"

    It's a testament to the public school system in the US. The U.S. was ranked 17th in an assessment of the education systems of 50 countries in 2012. It is not an accident, is has been deliberate dumbing down for over a century.

    An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic. Self-government is not possible unless the citizens are educated sufficiently to enable them to exercise oversight. It is therefore imperative that the nation see to it that a suitable education be provided for all its citizens. - Jefferson

      My dad told me about the pledge of allegiance as it was done in the photo. It started off with that Nazi-style salute (done before the Nazi) before the hand went over the heart. Of course, there was a good reason to change that.

      Dean, you dad told you? So I guess since the public school system didn't tell you that they were dumbing you down? lol I see how that works, you must be voting for Trump then, right?

      See Tamara, you must have learned all that in the Public School system if you are still voting for Trump at this juncture, that is if you believe Ptosis.

      No, I wouldn't have, since the public schools teach kids "socialism is great, government solves all the problems, do what the state says, evil freedom and capitalism!"

    Some people don't want to see the world burn - hence no vote for hillary killary clinton.
    Trump's a wild cards, clinton is a known liar, theif and killer of Americans in Libya and Iraq.
    No way any politically correct jerk on the news or the shills in newspapers can change facts.
    Clinton is the most dangerous person ever to run for president.
    Those who vote for clinton are helping her tie the noose she's putting around their neck.
    Have fun if she wins, U.S.A..
    She'll be worse than obama - who's probably the worst president in the history of America.
    Trump would give us a chance - clinton will be the final bells for America.

      Hmmm, Ptosis says that you and people like you who would even vote for Trump at this juncture have been dumbed down by the public educational system. Do you think he really meant to call you stupid? Is that really why you're voting Trump?

    Hey Grace.....Going by all I've read, viewed and more importantly, the many conversations, face to face with our everyday American voter, family, friends, neighbors, etal.....If I've heard this phrase once, I swear, girl, I've heard it a thousand times!!   "To make damned sure I do my part, however small to keep Hillary OUT!"   I hear this in my sleep. 
    Now understand.....90% of these "people" I talk to are/(were?) lifelong, hard core Democrats/Liberals.  That's the powerful thing about all of it.

    I'm also finding out little by little that this very issue is what keeps so many from speaking out or "publicly admitting" they're voting for Trump.  They just don't want all their liberal friends and family to hassle them.  I suppose it hasn't occurred to them that their friends & family may be thinking the same thing!!  LOL
    Since I've always been known for my Independent slot, it doesn't really bother me what anyone says one way or another.
    BTW girlfriend, are you keeping up with all the Wikileaks?  What-a-ya think?  LOL

    I am voting for Trump simply because I want to see Hillary go to prison & that treasonous usurper Bathhouse Barry Soetoro face a firing squad. Nothing else in this life matters to me anymore.

    I think every sane American should vote for Trump for a number of reasons.

    1) Hillary is more of an enemy of America than a friend. She's led a criminal and treasonous life and gotten away with it because of her power and influence.

    2) Our political system is profoundly corrupt and desperately needs a house cleaning. The obnoxious and arrogant Donald Trump seems to be the only one willing to confront this system.

    3) Hillary would tilt the courts to the criminal and lawless left for a generation and continue Obama's the disastrous economic policies that has doubled our debt and created the worse economy since the Great Depression.

    4) She would follow and make worse the dangerous unconstitutional abuse of executive power that Barack Obama started. This would include weaponizing the IRS to attack political enemies, Christians and conservatives.

    5) Donald Trump would help institute a number of conservative policy directives such as protecting our borders, strengthening our military and law enforcement, lowering taxes, repealing Obamacare, protecting the unborn, protecting religious freedom and gun rights,  protecting first amendment rights and opposing the oppression of political correctness by appointing conservative Judges

      Well GM, is WBA's the answer you were looking for? Somehow I doubt it. The latest IBD/TIPP tracking poll,most accurate nat'l poll during the 2012 election,shows the race is a dead heat.

    It's weird - when my brother brought me to Hawaii to live with him 15 years ago, his wife jumped all over me because I said I was politically nonpartisan.  She demanded to know if I would ever vote Republican.  I coolly answered yes, if I thought they were the better candidate.  I went on to tell her I voted for a few Republican candidates for Washington State in 2000, the previous year.  They had booklets at the polls, so I could make intelligent choices.
    Guess who she voted for this time?  Trump!  She actually lauds him for filing bankruptcy six times!  She's mad at Hillary for getting that rapist off.
    She always plays Devil's advocate, so I guess that's not too surprising.  Depending on how you see it, it may even be comical...
