There are no alternatives.The way our system is setup, its either you vote right, or you vote left. There is no compromising-and our system is too engrained to change up now. Too many delegates, too many congressman, and too many people to
The funny thing I've seen here in Orange County California where you typically see 30-40 Tesla model S' per day, a lot are owned by staunch Republicans. I think it's not smart to stereotype Tesla owners as Tesla has captured the WHOLE market from Environmentalists to Mitt Romney
Are the Trump supporters you know mellowing or having buyers remorse because of his seemingly lackluster cabinet picks?
All approval polls are showing about a 5 point drop in support in aggregate since the inauguration, this is true across the board no matter what his starting point was. His most favorable poll is Rasmussen, which shows him in positive territory still, but going from +14 to +6.So that indicates that a few
Is Donald Trump hurting the image of the Republican Party? If so, how strong is this effect? Is he driving people away from the party?
Yes, he is hurting his party and quite a few GOP members have left to become independents, Libertarians, or even Democrats because of this new GOP.The image of the Republican Party used to be one of-Fiscal conservatismEnvironmental protectionsRespect for individual libertiesLimited governmentSound foreign
Some businesses. Big companies will get to cut their taxes. But companies benefiting strongly from international trade, not so much.And if you are an uncompetitive US company threatened by foreign competitors, maybe you can make a big enough political contribution and get tariff or quota protection.
Trump is a symptom not a cause. We've had many presidents who didn't know their behind from a hole in the ground (look it up) and the USA survived them. The establishment pols are trying hard to paint him as a (insert scary word here).
Trump won the majority of counties, the majority of states and the majority of electoral college votes which are the only majorities that count. Hillary only won the majority of popular votes, the only count that can be manipulated). What does that tell you?
No one was more surprised that donald trump was elected president than donald trump. By all accounts he ran to gain leverage for another season of
I think Trump is a continuation of where the Republican party has been going and I think it is better to view Trump not as an anomaly, but as a barometer.A political party is defined by its voters not its party leaders. Any mismatch between the voters and
Are they? Good for them. Have you been watching the news lately????? Trump has been practically demanding his followers interfere in their local election polling places by demanding they ‘monitor' polls. Can you imagine how intimidating Trumps white supremist supporters will
In my opinion the republican party is not just divided at this point, it is on the verge of being shattered. On the other hand I believe the democrat party is in no danger of imminent destruction largely based on
YOU DONT GET IT STILL?"How did this happen?!" they cry.You want to know how this happened? You want to know how America resorted to bigotry and racism? You want to know how we let a TV star with no experience get to the White House?
Because they're out of touch.They have decided they can't trust information from the ‘liberal media' because it doesn't tell them what they want to believe. They look for confirmation bias, not truth. They fall for the GOP stunt of getting them worked up emotionally about issues their churches tell them are vital: deny
Who is Donald Trump's base? Why is he popular? Why are people voting for him? Why do people like and support him?
I recommend everyone to read Richard Muller 's reply before reading mine. I think his analysis is brilliant, but it's also very flawed.He's right that most people (in the US) would not know the Bill of Rights if they saw them. He's right when he
They will not, at least in any significant numbers. Of course, educated does not necessarily equal intelligence. Nor does it equal a strong moral fiber. You can be educated, hold degrees, and still be a piece of scum, just like The Orange One.The intelligent would not vote for that scumbag. Some educated may do
Democrats do talk about Asian Americans, not enough though, I agree. Historically and in general, demographic groups are thrown into a category, so everyone from South America is Latino, although this isn't an accurate picture, and Asian Americans too are lumped
It won't.Why?The 2016 election was all but decided well before Donald Trump entered the race. - The real "game-changer" was the entry of Trump into the race and his wildly (and improbably) spectacular success so far. While it was almost certainty that Hillary Clinton would win (after all she simply has to win the same states that Obama did
Democrats do talk about Asian Americans, not enough though, I agree. Historically and in general, demographic groups are thrown into a category, so everyone from South America is Latino, although this isn't an accurate picture, and Asian Americans too are lumped together, despite the diversity of those groups.

No contest: Hillary Clinton! It's not even close!!Both Hillary and Trump believe essentially that the government has total power over individuals, and each believes themselves to be ‘the smartest person in the room', and therefore qualified to ‘help' ordinary citizens by controlling as many aspects of their lives as possible.The difference is that there will be no press
I believe she is inspirational to at least some people. She catches a lot of crap for things that she has done in her past, but I don't personally believe her to be a bad person, I think she comes off as surprisingly sincere in the few interviews that she has given. I

Well, "Americans" is a very broad category. I think overall, she is an asset to Trump's campaign. When they appear together, she makes him seem more civil - less of a boor. She is generally likable, and seems comfortable in her own skin. Because male candidates often portray an
In a way yes. Hear me out, most women are attracted to money, so is she definitely attracted to him probably not. Think about it this way how many ugly billionaire men have beautiful women as wives or girlfriends? If Trump were poor Melania probably wouldn't look twice at him.
