All Donald Trump Has To Do Is Look Presidential in a Debate

July 15th, 2015 Viewed 1626 times

What if the whole offensive rhetoric was both to cast out a position but also to get everyone talking about him and push him into the debates.  Then all he has to do is not come out that way in the debates, looking somewhat more measured and Presidential, and his polls go even higher…

Trump continues to be unpopular among the public at large, with negative marks outpacing positive ones 61-33. "Strongly unfavorable" views outnumber strongly positive ratings by a three-to-one ratio.

Of course, I’m also interested in seeing what would happen were he to keep this up.  Would the people respond to what they feel is someone that actually will speak his mind regardless of what the politicos say and give him a chance at the Presidency?  Would it increase the turnout in the General Election?

Get out the popcorn.

Could You Ever Vote For Trump?

It’s obvious that he’s not doing it for the money, and one wonders whether he’s in it for the long haul, but obviously if he was going to get out when things got a little rough, he hasn’t yet.  Matter of fact, if anything the recent controversies have made him more popular than he used to be with average Americans:

Trump doesn’t need Wall Street. He doesn’t need Karl Rove and his Beltway boys. He doesn’t even need NBC. The fact of the matter is, he could buy all of them. This makes him oddly, utterly independent of influence everyone in Main Street America detests. It adds to an almost mythological persona. He can fight where the lesser man would crumble.

Is Trump Still a Birther?

If Donald Trump decides to run for President, will people remember his research on President Obama’s Birth Certificate, or that he wants to beat China more?

Should Macy’s Dump Donald Trump?

Santa CandleMacy’s, which has a “Donald Trump” line of men’s apparel, is being asked to drop The Donald from a Christmas commercial in which he pulls on Santa’s beard to see if it’s real.  Oh, and to cut ties with him altogether. He and other celebrities are featured in their “holiday” ad campaign.

To me, this is absurd.  I mean, I understand that MoveOn.org and SignOn.org think that what he said during the recent Presidential election was wrong, but this is America and we believe in free speech.  If you don’t like his stuff, don’t buy it, but telling a company that they should cut a person out because of what they’ve said, especially if you’re not buying their stuff anyway, is as wrong as the boycott of Chick-fil-a or Target or whomever by whomever.

If you have a problem with someone’s stance, vote with your wallet.
