Every presidential election, we talk about the possibility of a contested national party convention, and yet it hasn't happened in 60 years. But the Trump/non-Trump Republican fight is the closest we've been to one since that time.

Maybe we haven't seen all of Trump's true colours yet. He's showing a lot of bluster, perhaps to get it firmly embedded in people's minds that he's not going to take any crap. Some people like that. He still has 8 months to be Mr. Nice Guy.

I suppose mathematically you are correct, but for all intents and purposes I'd say he's "the man" until he comes up against Hillary!

Yep, along with the previous 365 days.

That he makes your head explode is an added bonus .

You think that him not being a politician will actually make a tangible difference?

And in a positive way?

The DNC squashed any hope for a contested convention for the Democrat party. It will always be establishment candidates. The Democrat Primaries are a Hillary coronation.

Trump has measured the societal mind set of the times, and is telling those masses what they want to hear. And he will get the votes from traditional red states. The question is can he break through in the traditional blue states which carry a larger electoral number.

Don't you think they all are? Sanders is for sure which is why Hillary is speaking out about it. Free college... seriously?

Not sure what the connection is but I mainly patronize A & W and McDonalds a wee bit. Nothing against B.K. except they're a few miles out of my way.


O.K. now I recall the Whopper from I ate there regularly in 1983.

I suppose it may depend on how many of those blue states have seen thousands of jobs disappear, factories close and manufacturing plants go overseas. The Donald appears to be striking a chord with people who see little hope for the future now that that future contains joblessness, idleness, poverty, loss of homes and the possibility of families breaking apart. I listened to him talking about the trillions of dollars that have gone overseas - he had a point and many of the unemployed people listening to him were probably quite cheered to hear that someone wants to do something about it.

Burger King has reduced price Whoppers every Wednesday ... a promotion they call Whopper Wednesday. That is the connection.

To depart from a consumer economy almost every aspect of life would require retooling but what would it become? What would the economy be?

$2.50 but they want 85 for a slice of cheese. It's the second best bang for your buck. 2 mcdoubles "like a Mac" can't be beat though.

"Like a Mac" is adding Mac sauce and lettuce.

I think he'd be the better of the two evils! (doubt if either one of them is totally sane)

Yeah, last I heard on the news Trump was leading about 35 to 34, so he must have just lost by a whisker.

You can just bet that the media and advertising companies are laughing all the way to the bank, DB. Yeah, people are making big money off this ............too bad it doesn't seem to be serving the American public all that well. JMO

Don Martin interviewed Conrad Black on Power Play today and the subject was his (Connie's) friend Donald. His Lordship vouchsafed the opinion that what you are seeing on the campaign trail is but smoke and mirrors and the Real Donald Trump though not quite warm and fuzzy, is the next best thing - a really good, smart man who can build fab buildings.

Burger King sucks. As does McDonalds. Want a good burger try Lotta burger down in New Mexico.

Trump's biggest enemy is the Republican Party itself - the 'establishment'. I think they are shooting themselves in the foot by opposing him! It is the establishment that the American public is tired of and that's why they are supporting Trump.
The 'old boys' in the Party don't want change; they want to hang onto their power. But if they want to win the election they will have to support Trump.
Clinton will be the same old same old. Trump will be a revolutionary new power that will get things done. I think Trump will go all the way and will defeat Clinton. There's a lot more to Trump than he has shown so far. All the mud they're throwing at him isn't sticking.

Absolutely and as we all know from history that isolationism and protectionism produce fantastic results.

Banks. What do they actually do? I I was in highschool and heard nothing about banks really. Are they important to young people? How many young people do banks eat every year?

Bingo.


And I think the GOP establishment will do whatever they can to run him off the road. I think that will be a mistake because that might just break the GOP and I am one who scoffed at that prediction in the past. But alienating such a large base is doom for the GOP. The GOP big shots simply don't have their fingers on the pulse of the electorate.
