Thank you Donald, for encouraging Latino votes to come out in droves and vote for Hillary. Donald is doing more for Latino civil rights than anyone since Ceasar Chavez.

The Donald's reprehensible comments about rapists, etc.. must really resonate among Republicans; he is #2 nationally, he's #2 in Iowa, he's #2 in Michigan, and he's #2 in New Hampshire. Thus the composite #1 among all polls as stated above.

Odd that not a single GOP presidential candidate has had the cajones to denounce Trump's ridiculous and hurtful statements.

Some are even hailing him as a hero for calling Mexicans slanderous names; Immigrant Sen. Ted Cruz from Calgary, Canada, told Fox News:

"I like Donald Trump. I think he’s terrific, I think he’s brash, I think he speaks the truth."

Really?

"They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

SOME, he assumes, SOME are good people.

Cruz: "I think he speaks the truth."

Why is the GOP, and every candidate not demanding an apology?

There is one party still running on race.

Something to ponder on Independence Day. Stay safe, y'all....

All the other candidates finally decided to attack Trump, the leader of the Republican party, and not because they were offended.

Because of 2 reasons-

- they saw him kicking butt with tbeir base

- they waited for their polls to tell them it was okay

The Donald is forcing the conversation and will suck all the air out of the Republican room until he quits.

On the other side of the corporate political world, Sanders draws tbousands at his rallies.

How many does Bush draw? Trump pays for his audience - fifty bucks a throw.

I particularly am galled by candidates who claim that SCOTUS is overreaching in their constitutional duties.

Say what?

really? is a registered user.

They real worry is that all of his sound and fury makes such an appalling distraction, that Jeb Bush begins to look like a good alternative. And then before you know it, we're all sleep-walking into another Bush disaster then wondering who in the world voted for a Bush?

So let's hope Donald's run is comically short, so we can focus on the real election.

4 times Trump cheated people out of money he owed them by filing bankruptcy.

No wonder he leads the Republican primary.

A schmuck is someone who inherited all that real estate and still cheats people he made contracts and promises to.... what a jerk.

ie... a perfect Republican presidential candidate

Donald Trump is causing real problems for the GOP.

Overt racism makes it more difficult for the subtle racism of denying voter rights, making it harder for minorities to vote, etc..

Trump had the 3rd biggest crowd of the season in LV.

Really brought out the fringe.

Trump clips the polls

"in June, Trump barely registered, showing up at 2 percent in the polls and with favorability ratings that were far under water; 20 percent of voters viewed him positively and 55 percent viewed him negatively. That gave him a net negative-35 favorability -- by far the worst in the field."

Now

"He's now seen positively by 40 percent of Republicans, compared to 41 percent who view him negatively."

Republicans love themselves some not so veiled racism, and D-level celebrity. Too bad, this charade ends before the first debate, when Trump will have to drop due to not releasing financial records.

As to Trumps world views; Obama announces a historic deal keeping Iran from getting nukes, and Trump tweets afterward...

"Let Pete Rose into the Baseball Hall of Fame. It's time, he has paid a big and very long price!"

Trump has his finger on the Pulse of the World!
