Comments on: Super Tuesday victories are nice, but Trump was already a ‘winner’ http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/02/super-tuesday-victories-are-nice-but-trump-was-already-winning/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: americangrizzly http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/02/super-tuesday-victories-are-nice-but-trump-was-already-winning/#comment-1128783 Sun, 06 Mar 2016 21:02:20 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=46714#comment-1128783 An exclusive club awaits. As one of the 435 members of the House of Representatives, you’ll pull down a nice salary of almost $170,000 a year, plus a sweet package of benefits—special tax deductions, housing and travel allowances, cheap healthcare, a great pension, even free parking and free mail. Not to mention the greatest fringe benefit of all: a great deal of power to shape the world you live in by party privilege of corrupt Political establishments. Super delegates, a corrupt political class of politicians. Both parties are guilty. Go Trump, go Bernie no one is squeaky clean, but those holding you back is what’s gone wrong in America. The ordinary people know the establishment parties choices have no clothes!

Facts are falsified, stories are made up, truths are twisted — all for the appearance of winning.”
Indeed, that is not exclusive to Trump, that is American ideology. And one of the most successful practitioners now is Hillary R. Clinton, just watch her latest tricks in Iowa and Nevada, leaving aside her long record.

The emphasis, in Trump’s case, should not be on the number of states won but on the percentage of the vote, especially the percentage of the not-Trump vote. He doesn’t seem like such a winner then.

They dont’ want Trump because he is not sold to big business.

I think you are on the right track. In the past I have found myself believing claims of expertise. With your fresh insight, can you suggest a way to counter Trump’s braggadocio? Just contradicting his assertions is not easy to do. How can one say he is not rich and successful when he arrives in a shiny commercial jet painted with his name in huge letters, and flanked by attractive women?

Trump certainly acts like a dictator. Have there been other candidates (in any country) who came to office in a similar way?

With articles like this where they equate american voter with the gop primary voter. Also, the author seems blind to the fact that the hispanic voters he won formed 7% of the republican party voters, so winning 45% or even 80% does not mean much and certainly does not translate into a 45% vote by the US hispanic population for trump. Then we wonder why most people just ignore science and pseudo scientists.

All of them are drearily the same, blathering on about how he is lying and exaggerating and how he’s not really all that successful and how he can’t do anything he says he’ll do and how the voters are complete fools. And then they should compare the massive tally to how many articles were/are published which confront the real reason behind his power and appeal: as the cure for the complete and hopeless failure of Barrack Obama, who has managed to even beat George the Idiot as the worst president of the modern era. If Obama were even a mediocre president, a middling success, Trump would have almost no traction, little sway, and little appeal. I bet the tally of anti-Trump delusionally hit pieces vs. honest pieces about Obama laying the foundation for Trump would be about 10,000 to 1 by the time Trump takes his oath.
