    We don't see many strict constructionists. Ron Paul and now Rand, maybe. I'd like to see more of that and hear more about how they are going to honor the Constitution. In all the pretty speeches, we don't hear the Constitution mentioned much. It's a battle of BS and wedge issues the majority of the time.

    I think the issue isn't whether he is a contender. The issue is that he is clearly not a Republican contender but has managed to hijack the party thus for for his own uses.

    What's a republican ? Boehner and Cantor were republicans as is Ryan. All rolled over for BO on cue.

    Trump is a little further off the mark than they were.

    He's the last man standing. I guess he must be a serious contender. How so many can vote for a candidate who has said the things he has said, I'll never know. They must not be listening to their own candidate.

    Or perhaps they want a robust economy more than political correctness.
    I see Vincent Fox wants to kiss and make up now.

    See JFK.
    In a nutshell, get government out of the way.

    He's ready to admit his foolish remarks were. Well, foolish. Not bad for a private citizen.

    Hillary has a 8.5 point lead over Trump on average in a head-to-head match-up. But Trump could gain ground on Hillary in the coming months and the general election could become a pretty close battle. Analysts often point out Hillary's weakness with younger voters under 30 and she can't assume that she would win the general election.

    Whatever the outcome is, Trump as played the game superbly up to now. I don't know what the future will bring when it comes to American politics, but Trump as certainly opened peoples eyes and shown that by simply saying all the right things, no matter if you can deliver them or not, will get you a solid base of support at least.

    Trump can win in November but only if Conservatives don't field an Independent candidate. Should all Republicans unite behind him then there's a 50% chance that he can win. If they don't then the odds of winning drop.

    I do say. the racist and xenophobic commentary is off the radar and not party supported. I don't know how anybody could miss that.
