    Prevailing theory here seems to be that he's smarter than his quotes make him out to be and pretending to be stupid is actually part of his sales pitch.

    A serious gamble though.

    Clinton, as I stated in the other thread, is a known quantity.

    Have you noticed you refer to the one as "Hillary" and the other as "Trump", not "Donald" ?

    Any conscious reason for that ?
    Slick Willie. People don't want to confuse the two.

    And Clinton's 'known quantity' is as a single term Senator and a very embarrassing stint of SoS. And being the only First Lady in living memory, perhaps ever, who is proven to have been cheated upon.

    You really don't understand much of this.

      Frankly. I think that the Dems are playing into Trump's hands. People lose sight of the fact that he has been a highly successful salesman throughout his career. Hillary is a politician, following the same old rote.

      Trump is striking out into campaign territory that hasn't been seen in a century, and it is working. People are responding to it. He blindsided his GOP counterparts and has emerged into the green fields beyond the primary battles while Hillary is still fighting trench-to-trench with Sanders.

      Americans like underdogs, and they do not like civil disturbance.

          Yup! Partly why I started a thread on that theme.

            •Warren G. Harding: Oh boy. Warren G. Harding made Bill Clinton look like Jimmy Carter. Harding had several affairs, including one with, Carrie Phillips, the wife of one of his best friends. Carrie may have been involved with espionage on behalf of Germany during World War I – when Harding was a U.S. Senator supporting American intervention against Germany on behalf of the Allies. Carrie’s presence was so threatening to Harding’s reputation and his candidacy for the Presidency in 1920 that the Republican Party sent her and her husband on an all-expenses-paid trip around-the-world until the campaign was over, as well as a monthly payment of hush money that continued until President Harding died. And, despite that, Carrie Phillips wasn’t even Warren Harding’s biggest problem or most blatant mistress. That title belonged to Nan Britton. She lived in Harding’s hometown of Marion, Ohio, and had a crush on him beginning when she was in high school. Their affair started not too long after that – she was a 20-year-old secretary who had recently graduated; Harding was a 52-year-old U.S. Senator and leading candidate for the Presidency. When leading Republicans asked Harding if he had any skeletons in his closet as they considered nominating him for the Presidency in 1920, Harding thought briefly and said no. He did have Nan Britton in his closet, though – in his Senate closet, in fact, as well as a couch in his Senate office, and, later, in a larger closet in the White House. In one of those places, Harding fathered an illegitimate child, which Nan Britton raised on her own, assisted by secret payments that now-President Harding had Secret Service agents deliver to her. Like Carrie Phillips, those payments ended when President Harding suddenly died in office in August 1923.

                Anything seems possible in American politics today. Trump is ahead of Clinton in the polls.

                  Nothing to really see here, this is along the same lines with Romney's 47% don't pay taxes comment. While Romney's 47% hurt him, his rallies weren't getting aggressive demonstrations/riots from the '47%'.

                  Trump on the otherhand has managed to get aggressive demonstrations/riots at his rallies...Mexican Flags, foul language, rocks, bottles, property destroyed....

                  Trump is a good showman and that is what usually wins elections. The people demonstrating against him are actually helping him by proving his points.

                  President Obama in 2008 offered us "Yes we can" & "Change" while McCain offered "Country first."

                  President Obama in 2012 offered us "Forward" while Romney offered "Believe in America."

                  Now Trump is offered "Make America great again" and the protesters are burning his signs, flying the Mexican Flag and vandalizing property.....

                  Hillary is offering "Hillary for America" Bernie is offering "A future to believe in."

                  Trump has the upper hand in slogans and left is giving him more votes everytime a rock is thrown.

                  The anti-Americanism displayed at the riots and the criminal acts against those who are just trying to peacefully attend has helped solidify my support for trump. Not because I trust him, but it gives me insight into what the other side's agenda may be.

                          Well, at least he's not trying to lay claim to creating a typical "Worker's Party" where the leadership are all elitist intellectuals on the far Left who want to do "stuff" for the "Workers."

                          That sort of party gives us dictatorships that enslave the workers...
