    How can this cat not have his own thread.

    All things aside, dude scares me, I don't think he is going away.

    He's got a fortune and an ego bigger than his fortune. He's not going away.

    He's going away. Longest he'll last is halfway through primary.

    yep and we'll have trouble even remembering he was in the race or that hillary was in trouble.

    this is the top of the first inning with 8 1/2 left to play. americans are stupid with short memories. very short memories.

    That's what they said about the 1st debate. He showed his ass, insulted the moderators as well as the network and increased his lead.

    I'm not so sure he is going anywhere. Hannity pressed him for details in a 2 part interview and he didn't shoot himself in the foot. Not saying I agree just that he didn't come off any more off base than anyone else I've heard.

    yes but his so-called negatives increased by 50%. theyre much higher than any other candidate which will do him in. women and his mouth will be his undoing.

    He's maxed out. So as other candidates drop out, he won't pick up more votes. People won't leave rubio and vote for trump. He can't win and will be spending his own money. It won't last long.

    He can win primaries with 16 other candidates. If 75% vote against him he still wins the primary. He won't start to fade until the race gets down to a very few survivors.

    Interesting fact: Booby Jindal is having a house built in the University Club area of Baton Rouge. I guess that means he's not planning to live in the White House

    Trump is a wild card right now. Objectively I can't see him winning the nomination or office. He would make a horrible president IMO as has never really had to listen to his subordinates or listen to others. His type of egotism isn't conducive to running a government.
    As many have said he is likely poised to the Rs either in the party or as an independent.
    However as @red55 wisely said in another discussion we are in the first inning and there are 8 1/2 more to go. Anything can happen.
