YouGov’s 2016 GOP Frontrunner Is … Donald Trump

MORE MOMENTUM FOR THE “REPUBLICAN” PARTY’S NEW FILTERLESS LEADER …

|| By FITSNEWS || We may look back on this headline one day and laugh … or we may look back on it and be like “damn.”

According to this week’s Economist/YouGov poll, the new frontrunner for the “Republican” presidential nomination is none other than … “The Donald.”

Billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump is the first choice of 15 percent of registered GOP voters nationwide – ahead of libertarian leaning U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and establishment favorite Jeb Bush, both of whom registered 11 percent support.

Take a look …

“Trump looks even better as a candidate this week when Republicans are asked for their second choice,” YouGov’s pollsters noted. “When they are, Trump extends his lead. One in four Republicans who are registered to vote say he is their first or second choice.”

Interesting …

It’s also consistent with recent state-level data (here and here).

What’s driving Trump’s “yeasting” in the polls?

Well … he’s at war with Mexico.  And political correctness.  And lots of “Republicans” eschew Mexicans.  Which is politically incorrect.

Of course there’s a catch …

“Trump supporters may be making more of a statement than voting for someone they consider a contender,” the pollsters added.  “Just one in five of Trump’s supporters think Trump will win the nomination.”

Who do they think will win?

Bush …

For all his insanity, there is something refreshing about someone who just doesn’t give a shit and says whatever they think is right.

Yeah, He was not high on my list till he took up this cause. And you are right, he will not “pull any punches.” And many politicians, including some Republicans, first thought he had his head up his ass on this issue. He has proven them wrong.
If the Republican primary was held tomorrow, I probably would not vote for him, but I love his passion on this issue.

If it was for calling someone a racist, you turds would not have nothing to say. You made you point, get back to your drug habit.

Quit supporting racists them, dummy. Or quit being a racist yourself. Then you might quit getting called it.

No, you have not, it has been fun. And I don’t have any more time for you two. Check the dictionary for some other derogatory words to use on your opposition. The staleness of your comments is predictable and boring.

Pay us, suckers! July 9, 2015 at 6:21 pm

You are a racist. That is a simple fact. If that bothers you, quit making racist comments. It’s very simple, dear.

First it was “stalking”, now it’s “bothering” that I’m doing. Come on, grow up. I’m not “back”. I’ve been here and commented here many times over the last month. Just because I haven’t been involved in any conversation you have been a part of in that time doesn’t mean that I’ve been away and am somehow just now “back”. I believe you respond to all sorts of people on here. Does that mean we can say that you are “stalking” and “bothering” them?

Yeah, that’s what your mama used to call me. Don’t get me started, bitch. ,

rubel July 9, 2015 at 6:15 pm

I always feel bad when I talk that way, so I’ve decided to try to steer clear. We can all agree or disagree without going there (name calling).

I don’t have the stomach for that kind of hate – regardless of what others think of my religious beliefs. We all lose when we start calling others names. I even switch sides during those debates.

Debates should be based on merit, not personal IMO. That is assuming we are all civilized.

erneba July 9, 2015 at 6:23 pm

Yeah, I dismissed them. They did touch a nerve at the start, but then I decided to fun them. They are so predictable and uninteresting that taking pot shots is easy. I apologize if I made you feel uneasy.

rubel July 9, 2015 at 6:28 pm

You don’t. I just know how I feel and if you are fine with that, then go for it. I honestly lost sleep for nights when I tried to keep up with a couple alias’s that went against my heart. I started to think — what kind of an impression am I giving, by caving into some mad man’s rantings.

It was fun for a while and I did laugh hard, but I lost more sleep than fun (sniffles) ;)

just sayin July 9, 2015 at 7:05 pm

I don’t mean this in a bad way however you need counseling. What is wrong with you?

Even a ‘mad man’ couldn’t make one to appear as unstable as you have seemed to be on Fits.

rubel July 9, 2015 at 7:10 pm

Your opinions are valid. You have a right to them. Thank you for expressing your concerns. They are noted in the irrelevant file, but noted.

erneba July 9, 2015 at 7:21 pm

I don’t mean to be rude, but I am not a very sensitive person. Someone gives me a shot, usually I take it with a grain of salt. I have had worst than these two today, just decided to have some fun and make a point. In the past, I have ignored these two bloggers, but decided I would give it a shot.
I won’t feel hurt, lose sleep, or feel the urge to apologize to them , they don’t deserve it.

erneba July 9, 2015 at 7:37 pm

Yeah
On this blog a person gets upset at personal bickering and name calling?
I agree with you, there is a time and place for everything, and always seeking out civility on this blog is a mistake. For me, it is fun, I won’t do it unless I can’t handle it and I hope the opposition that starts the name calling also understands. It is probably best just to ignore the trolls, but sometimes I can’t resist.

rubel July 9, 2015 at 8:01 pm

We are the same. I struggle to starve the trolls. I can’t help but throw a crumb their way. My wish is civility, but in all fairness, I fail miserably when attacked. I am making a renew effort not to cave to their level.

Somebody help me!

Yes he is. He just caught me at the wrong time today. Some people throw “racist” around on this blog when they don’t have a sensible reply. “Racist” is the most used word in their vocabulary. It is a filler when they can’t think of anything intelligent to say, which is quite often.

ELCID July 9, 2015 at 6:15 pm

I hope all these racist Tea Party, flag supporters in the South start their own party. Can you imagine the stupidity? Too bad they lack the wherewithall to effectively gather.

rubel July 9, 2015 at 6:35 pm

I once supported TP. I liked their platform. I was looking for something different. I too make mistakes. They are too hard right for me. I understand why they are, they were trying to bring things back to the center. I also formed the opinion, many lost their way. It became more about personal power and political capital. That is my opinion.

I ditched the Tea Party several years ago. Their are still some good in the Tea Party, some true patriots. While I struggle to mention a single name – one does come to mind: Janet Spencer. She may not approve of me using her name, but she is one of a very few in the TP I had respect for from the beginning til the end of my TP journey. Someone with integrity. I still hold her in high regard and respect her contributions. No idea what she is doing today, but I wish her well.

“The Donald” is now farting through silk.
Nice to hear someone that is not encumbered by the constraints of political correctness.
You may not like him as a candidate, but you have to admire his candor.
He has caught the crest of a very emotional issue that is making the news.

Reply
rubel July 9, 2015 at 5:25 pm

Yes — farting through silk but the even silk can’t serve as a strainer for BS. I can appreciate his candor all day long, but he is another T-Rav. He isn’t serious about becoming President IMO, if he is serious, it is only to feed ego. That is simply my opinion. I reserve the right to change it closer to election, I really don’t think I will need to. It’s only a matter of time before he implodes.

Reply
rubel July 9, 2015 at 5:22 pm

Trump, trumped himself with his outrageous comments. Some may not be paying attention and he can overcome that with ads to counter — but he’d have to lie.

I don’t consider him a serious Republican or Independent. He has some business sense no doubt, but I difficult to imagine he will be taken seriously.

After this rape of the Confederate Heritage the backlash in South Carolina is feeding right into Trumps hands. He will walk off easily with the GOP and Presidential Office. He maybe crazy, but he makes more sense than any of these other Politically Correct GOP and Dem. jerks. The old silent majority is about to show who really runs this country, and it’s not Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

Reply
ELCID July 9, 2015 at 6:31 pm

GOP would end up splitting the ticket and putting a Democrat into office. The GOP will keep quiet, because they know Trump speaks to what the country wants to hear. He will draw a crowd, and get a GOP President, Congress and Senate, along with the already GOP Supreme Court. It will happen.

Reply
DogWhistle July 9, 2015 at 6:52 pm
