they were actually give or take 5 points for the top three.
which ain’t great but aint terrible.
with a 22 point lead, the polls support trump winning NH easily.
I hope he does a good job. That whiny post about self funding was annoying.
spending half a billion for the generals has to hurt too!!!
This is exactly how I think as well! Also Trump is not narcissistic, rather he is optimistic and larger than life.
Yes, and Cruz said that Trump threw his support to him and that we should trust him this time.
Yes, my mom, although not that old, says there is just something about Cruz she doesn’t like and she doesn’t trust him. To my knowledge, my mom has never been wrong, lol.
I do have to say I am upset at how high an establishment player placed. Rubio is dangerous at the same level that bush was before he got pounded into electoral dust. We will need to focus a lot of effort into dismantling Rubios campaign and bring down the last establishment pig hope.
Who in the field had ever built anything?
Remember how it seemed that nobody liked Ted Cruz in the Senate and you heard different stories about Ted and dismissed them?
Heard he backstabbed Mike Lee. Cruz just can’t help it.
Good questions; no offense taken. He has a likable personality; he just does. He is honest that he is for socialism, which I find refreshing when compared with his Senate colleagues who pretend to be something else and then campaign and vote for socialism for the unwashed masses but not themselves. He is 86th in net worth in the Senate at less than 600k.
While I could not vote for Sanders, I admire him for standing up to the Clinton machine to run for the Democrat nomination. He acknowledges he is a Socialist, which is what the Democrat party is today and will not admit. A Trump vs Sanders election would present an historically strong contrast to the American people. One would hope that after the collective madness that chose a Moslem socialist masquerading as a Christian Democrat twice would choose more wisely. It would also set aside the political and media classes as they existed prior to this election.
Who in the field has gone through bankruptcy four times?
Interesting. I’ve never listened to him, actually. You’ve got me curious.

That’s true. It would definitely be a good thing to have a reset in the political & media machines (or is that redundant?)
not Trump. You are not slandering Donal J. Trump are you? HE HAS NEVER FILED A BANKRUPTCY? RIGHT? you are not saying he has — are you? careful.
"Trump doesnât deny that four of his businesses have filed for bankruptcy."
Read the link.
Ha..That’s hilarious. If you owned GM stock after they filed before they got billions in grants for the Unions, did you show that on your record?
I don't know what you are trying to say.
Here is an outline of the four bankruptcies cited from the link:
"Bankruptcy 1: The Trump Taj Mahal, 1991
The first bankruptcy associated with Trump was perhaps the most significant in terms of his personal finances, according to news reports at the time. He funded the construction of the $1 billion Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, which opened in 1990. By 1991, the casino was nearly $3 billion in debt, while Trump had racked up nearly $900 million in personal liabilities, so the business decided to file for Chapter 11 reorganization, according to the New York Times. As a result, Trump gave up half his personal stake in the casino and sold his yacht and airline, according to the Washington Post.
Bankruptcy 2: Trump Plaza Hotel, 1992
Trump acquired the Plaza Hotel in New York for $390 million in 1988. By 1992, the hotel had accumulated $550 million in debt. As a result of the bankruptcy, in exchange for easier terms on which to pay off the debts, Trump relinquished a 49 percent stake in the Plaza to a total of six lenders, according to ABC News. Trump remained the hotelâs CEO, but it was merely a gesture -- he didnât earn a salary and had no say in the hotelâs day-to-day operations, according to the New York Times.
Bankruptcy 3: Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts, 2004
Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts filed for bankruptcy again in 2004 when his casinos -- including the Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Marina and Trump Plaza casinos in Atlantic City and a riverboat casino in Indiana -- had accrued an estimated $1.8 billion in debt, according to the Associated Press. Trump agreed to reduce his share in the company from 47 to 27 percent in a restructuring plan, but he was still the companyâs largest single shareholder and remained in charge of its operations. Trump told the Associated Press at the time that the company represented less than 1 percent of his net worth.
Bankruptcy 4: Trump Entertainment Resorts, 2009
Trump Entertainment Resorts -- formerly Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts -- was hit hard by the 2008 economic recession and missed a $53.1 million bond interest payment in December 2008, according to ABC News. After debating with the companyâs board of directors, Trump resigned as the companyâs chairman and had his corporate stake in the company reduced to 10 percent. The company continued to use Trumpâs name in licensing."
Again, "Trump doesnât deny that four of his businesses have filed for bankruptcy."
Show me a successful businessman who hasn’t failed a few times.
“Who in the field has gone through bankruptcy four times?”
Part of the learning experience. He has had much more success than failure.
