"Kanye West, I'll never say bad about him, you know why? Because he loves Trump," Trump said Thursday. "He goes around saying, 'Trump is my all-time hero,' he goes around saying that to everybody, so Kanye West, I love him. Maybe in a few years I'll have to run against him, I don't know, so I'll take that back."


Oh yea... Donald Trump is really running for president.

This is, without a doubt, the greatest troll job in the history of trolling.

I'd vote for a true moderate Republican. I'd never vote for this fucking disaster. Not in a million years. He's an absolute joke.

He'll attract idiots. The best thing he has going for him right now is that apparently there are a lot of them.

This exactly. I'm extremely moderate but would typically vote for Democrats, and I've come to think that Trump is also fairly moderate, except for his immigration insanity and his awful treatment of women.

But I'd never vote for him, no matter whom the Democrats nominated. Hell, I'd vote for Ted Cruz before I'd vote for Trump.

SurveyUSA poll released Friday shows in a hypothetical matchup with Hillary Clinton, Trump is ahead 45% to 40%.

But digging into the racial breakdown of the respondents is revealing. For example, the poll finds 25% of black respondents say they would vote for Trump over Clinton.

i truly love this woman

Sarah Palin wants to be Donald Trump's energy secretary,*has no idea what the job entails - Vox

Quote:

"I think a lot about the Department of Energy, because energy is my baby: oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the Earth for mankind’s use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations."

"I'd get rid of it. And I'd let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge."
Quote:
Except this all has very little to do with the Department of Energy, which mainly oversees the nation's nuclear weapons program — a task consuming nearly half its budget — and conducts energy R&D.

What Palin wants is the Department of Interior, which manages most federal lands. They're the ones handling leases for coal mining or supervising offshore oil and gas drilling. If you wanted to transfer public lands back to the states, you'd focus on Interior, not Energy.

Anyway, even if Palin did become cabinet secretary, she couldn't just abolish a department on her own. That would likely require an act of Congress. But it sounds like Interior should be the agency she "thinks a lot" about.

Democratic nominee is:

1. Hillary
2. probably Hillary

Trump is mathematically looking better and better the longer he holds on to these leads. GOP voters are strategically stupid, unsurprisingly. Last time, they didn't like Romney, but couldn't get it together behind just one alternative candidate. This time, it's somewhat similar. The outsiders (Trump, Carson and Fiorina) are polling at over 60% of the entire GOP electorate, leaving the rest of the field (the establishment choices) all in the single digits. If Trump can keep this schtick going into March, the race will be pretty much over as there will be no chance anybody that can afford to stay in the race can mount much of a comeback.

Which is exactly why the powers-that-be are starting to get antsy and want to push Romney to run yet again. Dude would easily clean up the way he did last time as his supporters alone would give him like 30% of the vote out of the gate (and you don't need much more to nab a majority of the delegates). Romney has also had a huge reputation shift with both Republicans and the general public, and I think, would fare better in a head-to-head matchup against the Democratic nominee than any other GOP candidate.

The problem for Trump is that there's no depth to anything he says. He may well be the least informed of the 17 running for that nomination. Vague policy proposals and absolutely no foreign policy knowledge aren't the sort of traits that will get people in Iowa to spend a day in a high school gymnasium caucusing for you.

Another Democrat has just thrown their hat into the ring. Lawrence Lessig is a Harvard Professor whose plan is to get in there and accomplish meaningful electoral reform and then immediately resign as President after doing so. Pollsters began including him a week ago in some of their surveys and he already has managed to raise over $1 million, so it's fair to consider him the sixth major Democrat to announce.

Why would I vote for someone who would resign if he made successful change?


Anyways, now Hillary has finally realized that supporting publicly funded elections is the way to go, so she's on board as well.

Hillary Clinton boosts small donors in campaign finance reform plan - CNNPolitics.com

Not exactly what I want to see happen, but it's a start if she gets the nom, at least.
