With 16 GOP candidates all vying for the chance to rule the United States, divvying up the poll becomes a sticker shock of sorts. I mean if all were equal, each would share 6% of the votes. So it is not news that the garbage, rageful, potty-mouth vendetta’s should begin early on as vetting is necessary.
It is also important to consider who the pollsters are in these random tallys. For example; the Quinnepiac University Poll – if you haven’t heard of them, you aren’t alone. But they are declaring themselves to be; highly accurate and the gold standard. Their random sampling is of 1000 age 18 and over registered voters. And despite their claims to fame, they have a scanty record of accuracy. Nonetheless, the media likes polls and so they are often cited…paid to cite.
Trump has shown a breakout in the polls, and the low ballers are miffed taking swipes that do nothing to give integrity to their own failing run. What to do, what to do… In classic style reminiscent of the reality Survivor series, elimination of the competition is top priority. So the GOP is ganging up on Trump for only one purpose, to eliminate the one who has the most points. How righteous… And the Games begin!
The intention is to eliminate as many as possible as quickly as possible so as to confuse the polls and delete what people think or want so that the competition is now among the losers that no one really wanted in the first place but that’s all that is left. It’s the political tact to force voters to choose between two evils, instead of values. I do not qualify as a Trump supporter, I have made no choice as yet, I am merely a bystander watching the melee.
One advantage to Trump is simply his team. They are sharp. They turn every bad press to a press – then to a positive press – it’s a win-win situation and the others are way too over-matched to get it. When the other ‘contestants’ rant, their raves look scary because they were supposed to represent a decorum of sorts. Now, we see their true nutty professor self. And it ain’t pretty.
Graham doing some goofball video about cell phones is a loser rhetoric, he’s already on the defensive and he is hardly addressing anything of importance. Not a good sign. His campaign is ummm, misinformed, I’d garner.
But candidates rely on polls in order to determine which side of an issue they stand. If the poll indicates that the American people don’t care, then the candidate stays on the sidelines. Making no comment, the candidate can then come back later and make a stand if the poll changes. It’s called hypocrisy and deceit.
On the other side of the equation we have Hillary and Bernie. With Hillary gaffs, Hillary lies, and Hillary coldness, her appeal as a woman is lost. She crosses the line of all ethnicities, religions, nonreligions, class, you name it, she makes people cringe. Martin O’Malley has an uphill battle given the Baltimore debacle of inane leadership, not to mention his bizarre claim that global warming led to the formation of ISIS. I mean, if that were the case, then wouldn’t California be an ISIS haven?
So the dog fight has begun and the mud will be by far the worst in history – that’s a fair bet. It’s the perfect time to go on holiday, to have no access to the squabbles and intense verbiage slinging, it’s a good time to just – go away. We still have nearly 18 more months of this and that would be a long, long holiday…
