Mr. Bluster and Pomp Donald Trump (aka The Donald) Announces Candidacy for President 2016...

The Donald made it official yesterday, he is jumping in the clown car and tossing his hat into the ring for the republican nomination for the presidency of the United States of America.

In a pre Trump announcement the FiveThirtyEight laid out The Donald's chances of securing his party's nomination. Supported by data going back to 1980 Trump has no chance of success. Of course The Donald knows this, and we believe The Donald is merely looking to parlay what is certain to be an ill fated run into a media event. Simply put, he is looking to make money of the event and fill his bulging pockets further.

... A whopping 57 percent of Republicans have an unfavorable view of Trump, according to an average of the three most recent polls. That beats former record holder Pat Buchanan, who had a 43 percent unfavorable rating at this point in the 2000 election cycle.1 Buchanan, of course, ended up running as an independent.

Taking into account name recognition, Trump’s net favorability rating (favorable minus unfavorable) of -32 percentage points stands out for its pure terribleness at this point in the campaign. Like his unfavorable rating, it is by far the worst of the 106 presidential candidates since 1980 who are in our database.

For this reason alone, Trump has a better chance of cameoing in another “Home Alone” movie with Macaulay Culkin — or playing in the NBA Finals — than winning the Republican nomination.

Yes sir, for The Donald it likely isn't about winning the nomination. Bt how much he can increase his unpopularity and wealth.

  1. This is YOOOOOGE! I can't wait to hear him tell the world about all the incredible things his people in Hawaii were finding out about Pres. Obama's birth certificate! We've all been waiting since 2012 for Trump to tell us! I guess he'll be too busy now to share that info.

    Some folks believe a business guy like Trump would be perfect for running the country. Perfect if bankruptcy is a goal for America!

    Huh? You seemed really offended by my post on Trump. I assumed the reason is because you're a huge Trump fan. But your post does not make it sound like this is the case. BTW, Trump said during his announcement that his campaign was going to be funded with his own money. So, depending on how long he stays in, this could end up costing him quite a bit.

  3. I have NO idea what your talking nor no I want to know Dervish.

    1. Yes.... anyone who would assume you were a huge Trump fan has either never read your blog ever, or is mistaking you for another.

  4. In general, Les, it would be nice if commenters stuck to relevant matters of the posts, instead of immediately looking for an angle to attack another participant for what was supposedly said by that participant in other posts... or shilling for posts in their own blog.

    But we can't always get what we want...

    Back to Trump!
