it's funny to read comment section of Stephen Colbert's Late Night video. I support Bernie so much but gosh these Bernie supporters are annoying

Obama was a very good candidate in 2012.


As candidates go, the objective is to win primaries and Trump has had more success with about the least money spent, people don't get how smart and successful he is, I expect him to keep doing the same in November. He is winning with the least capital and promises spent. How smart is that? Calling him a strongman, does not make him one. An elected official having the strong backing of the electorate? Well, that is more properly called a mandate that can lead to getting congress to actually do something. Trump understands the American people, he knows how to talk to them, he knows what their concerns are. He is much better at this than any of the so-called professionals. I don't think he is just lucky, to be winning, I think he is relying on some advisers. A person that can figure this out, and know how to win these campaigns without throwing money that they whored themselves to get like Jeb, Hillary, Rubio, Cruz, etc. is worthy of serious consideration. I give Bernie a certain amount of credit too, but he never had a chance, and is only a fly in the ointment.

How hard is it to appeal to the lowest common denominator? Fear and ignorance are powerful forces. Trump is a huge problem, but he's nothing without the bigger problem; the ignorant, the racists, and the assholes that brought him to be.

No, he's not just lucky, and no he's not going to win over any Bernie fans.

Are there enough to make him win? Will he somehow unite both sides into a antiTrump movement? Or will we just not have to worry about it because the math isn't on his side?

National Socialism was a movement, too.
