In Pennsylvania, nearly 4 in 10 GOP voters said they would be excited by Trump becoming president, while the ideas scares a quarter of those who cast ballots in the state’s Republican primary.

2.5 voters in ten are scared of Trump, 4 in ten are bigots. No surprise there. Sounds about right.

Yeah but if the MSM shows you a Trump speech where he calls Mexicans rapists, aren't you just being told what to think by the MSM?

Trump could have Hillary in tears on a one on one.

kc and super aer quite insulting to millions of people. The rapists Trump referred to were raping the young girls illegally crossing the border. Of course you can twist his words like the MSM does to believe Trump believes all Mexicans are rapists, we'll keep on hating, cause I don't.

Mmillennials really, really dislike Trump.

61% of them would vote for Hillary Clinton, compared to only 25% for Trump. Even young Republicans can't tolerate him: Only 17% have a favorable opinion, compared to 74% unfavorable. That net -57% unfavorable would be far and away the worst for any GOP candidate since such data were first collected in the 1970s.

Put another way, Hillary Clinton's "problems" with younger voters disappear the moment Trump is nominated.

I read the transcript of his speech on the Mexicans, unlike most people. Trump never said he was referring only to rapists, his comments referred to Mexicans as rapists.

The "MSM" didn't need to twist his words, they were disgusting in and of themselves with no twisting.

Trump is no racist. How in the 21st century could he be with the success he has. It's impossible. If you read alternative news site you will have read at that time rape was rampant with the young girls. Yes, the MSM has twisted the whole story to feed you their desire. Works well too!

Trump is no racist.

I agree with you, except for the 'no racist' part.

How in the 21st century could he be with the success he has. It's impossible.

What? What a failure in logic. There have been plenty of 'successful' racists in the past.

the MSM has twisted the whole story to feed you their desire.

They haven't needed to twist anything. His own words show him for the racist he is.

Considering that Trump is currently facing fraud charges in New York as a result of stealing from the elderly at his "Trump University", it is very likely Trump will be debating from Rikers Island.

Truth hurts doesn't it people?!

StrangerlandAPR. 27, 2016 - 09:15AM JST His own words show him for the racist he is.

"Racist', the bogey word of the 21st century. Everybody is racist. It's human nature to prefer your own kind over others. And it's not a white privilege despite what the dishonest liberal media would have you believe. Blacks are racist, whites are racist and Asians are racist. It's a fact and it will never change so get with the program.

Ahh, so instead of decrying Trump's racism, now we're changing tack to "well, everyone is racist, so it's ok that he is racist".

This is the guy who wants to be leader of the most powerful country in the world.

Clinton won Maryland. Trump won three states. All Cruz doing is his one of specialty, talk like he works for trash magazines on Trump. He hasn't learned talking politics yet. News now says Trump won four states.

Delaware Trump and Clinton.

Trump sweeps all five states. it says.CT, PA, RI. He is in NY Trump Tower and seems awfully quiet. when Cruz is barking all day long.

Trump's legacy of failure still to be written . . .

"Not long after, the states of Maryland and New York forced the company to drop the word “university” from its name. It’s now known as the Trump Entrepreneur Initiative, though it no longer accepts students. Meanwhile, the New York Attorney General has a $40 million fraud case still pending against the company. Trump may be called as a witness this spring in a separate class-action lawsuit brought by dissatisfied customers who say promises of mentoring and access to capital didn’t pan out." - "A "fake university" comes back to haunt Donald"

The GOP/Tea can debate the degree of racism Trump has promoted but the New York court will prosecute Trump on a $40 million dollar fraud charge.

Another line in Trump's resume for the Oval Office: bigot, racist, felon sounds like the kind of candidate the GOP/Tea has been identified with since Trump announced his candidacy by attacking the Citizens of Mexico who are supposed to be building Trump's wall on their tax dollars.

Another fraud Trump will be tried for in the court of public opinion.

Anyways cursing from afar in the privacy of your own living room is one thing. Going out and pepper spraying Trump supporters, shows how classy the young hispanic Hilary votes are.

As for the Black community supporting Hilary, lets also hope they're a lot more classier than Rakeem Jones. The heckler who got sucker-punched by a Trump supporter, but deserved it.

One thing is certain, the self proclaimed ' biggest democracy on earth' would have to relinquish the title should they prevent Trump from competing next year.

What a mess! The GOP thought he was a joke and let him take part in the race, i mean 'their' race, and now he's about to win they are screaming 'this man's a monster'! Amateur hour. If he isnt allowed to compete next year selling the democracy concept to third world cou tries will become much harder...

Wc, you might want to read articles before posting them. This was not a "Trump rally," it was a gathering of pro- and anti-Trump people outside of Anaheim City Hall as the City Council was set to vote on a measure that would condemn Trump.

Perhaps you would suggest that only Trumpeters should be allowed present at such events. Also note that the pepper spraying came from both sides. And while you disparage Hispanics and blacks, what about that white woman from Laguna Niguel? What was she doing at what was an internal City of Anaheim issue? You won't comment on that, but you certainly would if a bevy of real Anaheim residents showed up at a Laguna Niguel City Council meeting.

Let's keep to the facts, shall we?

The election is this November.

One thing is certain, the self proclaimed ' biggest democracy on earth' would have to relinquish the title should they prevent Trump from competing next year.

They are choosing the leader of their own party. They can set whatever rules they want, as the leader of their party has no political power whatsoever from becoming the leader of that power. The power comes from the democratic election after the leader is chosen, which is democratic, even if it does have its troubles.

@stranger you are obviously technically correct, but the point i was trying to make was more moral and ethical. The vast majority of voters who backed Trump expect they will be listened to and that 'their' candidate will represent 'their' party. If the party elite does not listen to their voters I doubt they will be listened to a second time by the same voters at (yes fizzbit) November's election.

I have no idea how, or even if as I think its too late now, the GOP can resolve this without having egg on the face and lose the little credibility they may still have. Am pretty sure they would lose a big chunk of Trump voters should they deny him the right to represent them. A majority of their voters have rallied, for wrong or right reasons, behind the candidate they see as anti establishment. It would be suicidal imo to ignore those voters and impose, undemocratically, 'their' candidate. I think their only chance is actually to swallow their pride and help create a 'presidential' Trump.

My guess is there will be an independent put into the debates. The establishment will never have a one on one with trump and Hillary because they know he would obliterate her.

Actually he said that Mexicans were rapists, but some were nice people. Just like how Republicans are racist, but some are nice people. I'm sure Trump supporters here have no problem with that language.

If Clinton favors Wall Street that means she's really Republican. The Republican party is the pro business party after all.

And why do people keep beating up on Clinton for just one embassy attack. Under GWB there were something like almost 40. What cherry picking. She's the best choice for president. Less embassy attacks than under the previous administration.

"Oh, the Trump haters are so entertaining!" Yes, it's so entertaining to think how much money you could make investing in his businesses. Or how you could get a good job if you go to his university.

Yep! Just saw this pop up on my facebook. It's from Michael Berry:

If Trump wins the nomination, the Dems and media will destroy him. His life is a joke. You Trumpkins will blame everyone but yourselves for this failure, you always do. But he will be destroyed. His wreck of a life will be laid bare, and it will be ugly. You can cuddle Sean Hannity but it won't bring a victory. Trump's awful life will be on full display, and you will be shamed by it. Don't blame me. I will laugh at you. You're electing Hillary with your Trump votes. You've been warned. The world will turn on you, and you'll feel small and helpless. But you should have know. Life is hard, it's harder when you're stupid. This day will come when Trump will be shamed into oblivion. You voted for him. Never forget, you were warned.

Stranger,

Even the Koch brothers (spit) have said they will support Clinton over the insane Party inmates.

Trump's inner circle have stated to GOP elders (on record via AP) that it is all an act. Yet his pea-brained followers continue to think the billionaire elitist is a man of the people.

The thing is - it may be! Or, if he changes tack, that may be an act. If he changes tack and does it convincingly enough to seem like that could be the real him, how can you trust someone like that with the presidency - he will come of authentic both as a racist/bigot, and as sane person, which essentially means no one will know which one is the real him, or even if either are the real him. As I've said all along - Trump says what he thinks the current listener wants to hear.

ghoneim, that "war" is an internecine GOP struggle; it has nothing to do with democracy or Democrats. Trump will very likely be nominated much to the pleasure of Democrats. In November the American people will speak - up and down the ticket.

The bigger question is what happens to the GOP the day after. This is a good read on the eve of GOP's destruction. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/richard-north-patterson/the-gops-eve-of-destructi_b_9701880.html

I don't think he can try and pass himself off as a moderate now Stranger. The moderates aren't insane and presumably even the tiny-minded rubes that support him will probably get pissed when he starts supporting the LGBT community or pro-choice issues.

The number one reason most of these idiots support Trump is because he's made them feel as though it's ok to be racist, bigoted misogynist again. But America has moved on. It truly is a Thing of Beauty :D

"A telltale sign that Trump does not actually know what it feels like to be in the military is his denigration of POWs. Last July at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, Trump said of Arizona senator and former Vietnam POW John McCain: “He’s not a war hero. He’s not a war hero because he was captured. I don’t like people who were captured.”

Trump will face the reality of an American veteran community who sees him for what he is, a fraud and liar, if the New York court doesn't send him up for fraud in their $40 million damges suit against "Trump University".

Whatever. The main point is that hispanics pepper sprayed Trump supporters. For what? Because they're white? Because they voted for Trump?

Anaheim used to be a nice city nestled on OC . . . . but the overflow of low lifes from Buena Park and Santa Ana have obviously tarnished Anaheim's image.

Remember when the KKK got clobbered in Aneheim recently? Yeah, they deserved it. But obiously Aneheim is a rock n' roll city if ur white.

As a left-winger Canadian, if it's up to a race between Hillary and Trump... sigh go Trump.

Hillary Clinton has never seen a war she didn't like. Sure, a few years later when she needs the progressives' votes she bemoans the war, but when has she ever opposed a war when it counted? She was for the Iraq war, she was a major influence in the American intervention in Libya and if it was just about her, the US would have been in Syria to topple Assad... and helping Al-Qaeda.

Donald Trump, for all his boasting, doesn't seem eager to embark on military adventures across the world. As a businessman, I think he sees more value in negotiating than in confronting. Especially with Russia, I think he could stop the meaningless confrontation with the Russians who are not the West's enemies anymore (though the Cold Warriors in Washington don't seem to have gotten the memo). I think he would be much better for the world than Hillary.

Plus, Trump would throw a wrench in the entire neoliberal attempt to deprive countries of national sovereignty through trade deals. So that's a big plus. Hillary on the other hand is bought and paid for by the big banks and has obviously no compulsion about lying to get elected. Before Bernie became a danger, she was running as a center-right moderate, when he got strong, she suddenly rediscovered her progressive roots.

Oh, please, Wc. Did you even read the article, or do facts not matter to you?

...the conflict turned violent as demonstrators on either side hurled obscenities at each other and fired pepper spray, witnesses said. An ambulance arrived to provide care for at least two young girls and a woman who were stung by pepper spray. Television news video of the clash appeared to show a pro-Trump demonstrator lunging with a Taser at an opponent.

Of course violence is deplorable in most any situation, but while which side instigated it is not clear, that both sides were guilty of it is. And:

The main point is that hispanics pepper sprayed Trump supporters.

Unless you have more info than the two articles we have linked to, I see zero evidence to back up your claim. In fact, I see it as the same sort of knee-jerk racism prevalent among Trump supporters. Trump the other day complained about hostility from a judge involved in his Trump University lawsuit because "he happens to be Spanish" - okay, Spanish, Hispanic, whatever. The point is that Trump and many of his followers clearly divide Americans into clear groups based on their ancestry. Do you wanna wear that shoe? http://www.rawstory.com/2016/02/watch-donald-trump-blames-trump-university-legal-woes-on-hostile-judge-who-happens-to-be-spanish/

It's not necessary to provide links for "common knowledge." Everybody knows the Blacks and Hispanics are the culprits trying to incite trouble at Trump rallies.

The point is that Trump and many of his followers clearly divide Americans into clear groups based on their ancestry. Do you wanna wear that shoe?

Yes. I will. But, Obama and that whole "vote for Change" thing - change america- is just as bad. Its up to the voters to choose a side. He screwed up everyones thinking by trying to make the US like other countries.

Hillary will be easy to defeat. America has now suffered over 9 years of Democrat party control, 7 under Obama, filled with Democrat recessions, the rise of terrorist nations and insanity caused by Obama and Hillary like open slave trade. Hillary has promised to continue the Obama incompetence. Mix that in with the abject corruption and felonies Clinton herself has done and continues to do, the Republicans basically just need to be moderately united in prosecuting Clinton in the media and trump has proven his ability to use media. No one has to invent or exxagerate Hillary crimes and corruption, the real unexagerated truth about Hillary is enough to sink her.

Cruz doubles down on failure leaving Trump in free fall.

The 'Canadian Bush' announced his running mate, Carly Fiorina.

Cruz is well known for costing American Taxpayers Two Billion when his lone wolf filibuster resulted in a Two Billion Dollar cost to Americans and damaged the GDP at a loss of Twenty-Four Billion in Cruz's Government shutdown.

Fiorina, who Trump called 'horse-face', in the debates, laid off 30,000 workers when her disaster at HP rocked the tech company in an ugly proxy battle led by a Hewllit family member.

Cruz now leaves Trump as the sole hope for the GOP/Tea to implode at Cleveland, Ohio when Trump Thumpers riot as the GOP/Tea will reject the billionaire bigot as un-electable.

Reviewing Fiorina's failure in the primaries pales by comparison with the disgust investors held for the bitter and unpleasant one time CEO.

"The stock is up a bit on the fact that nobody liked Carly's leadership all that much," said Robert Cihra, an analyst with Fulcrum Global Partners. "The Street had lost all faith in her and the market's hope is that anyone will be better."

This is a monumental election. This is probably the first time in recent years where both fronrunners are hated by their respected parties. Personally, I won't vote for either. I don't believe in choosing the lesser of two evils. Clinton, a neoliberal corporate shill who is so sketchy that scandal might as well be her middle name, or Trump, an authoritarian goofball with no solid policy position besides building a wall and practically perfecting Muslims. No siree bob. I'll be writing in a name on my ballot.

She's going to attempt to drag him through the mud in response. Whether or not she has any more success than him is questionable though - he seems to be able to keep mud off himself pretty good.

The end result is that a significant portion of the country is going to hate whichever candidate ends up becoming president.

Which is why everyone should be pushing for Bernie.
