Trump has a high profile and is reasonably articulate. Name recognition means a lot. Lee Harvey Oswald would pull votes simply because people have heard of him.

No clue as to why you think Trump couldn't get elected. Step one is getting enough name recognition that people cover you. Step two is how you handle yourself after you're in the spotlight. Trump has his skeletons, and if he moves forward, he'll be attacked for both his divorces and the previous business failings, but he's been in the spotlight enough to know how to deal with it. I'm not talking about how effective he would be as president. I'm talking about his ability to get elected.

Most people admire those who fail and recover. Americans love success, real success from real work, not Obama style "success" as a community organizer. Trump is undeniably successful and the contrast between him and the failure, which is Obama, could not be more stark.

The more I see of Trump, the more I'm impressed with him.

Trump is a New York liberal. Have you ever heard the expression “When two Democrats run against each other the Democrat always wins”—???

The Republican party is fast filling up with liberals like Trump, Christie, Scott Brown, etc. These people might have a chance against Obummer in a Dem primary in some states but Dumbsky would just wipe the floor with somoene like Trump in a general election.

Trump has no qualification to be president. None. I agree that celebrity matters but only if you have some credentials in the industry. Unless a candidate has led the allies to victory in Europe (or better) he’d be better served running for lesser office first and proving himself.

Trump, with his divorces and bankruptcies and his long history of pandering to liberal Dems like Pelosi, would just be a laghingstock.

But I do think that a Trump candidacy could spell the deathknell of the Republican party, and that would probably be a good thing.
