But would you buy a used car from Sanders? Or, more important, from Trump? :ph34r:


To judge from Trump's apparent wealth, plenty of people must have bought a used car from him. Or maybe they buy used buildings.

He has good approval ratings.  He also has terrible disapproval ratings.  

 

There is no middle ground of 'i'm not bothered about him'.

 

The way that both he and Sanders have taken the nomination process by storm so far would make me reluctant to predict that either of them can't turn some of the negatives into positives as the process continues to unfold.

 

In Sanders' case, however, I see that Clinton already has pledges from around 355 of the 712 superdelegates, while Sanders has just 14. It's hard to imagine that the Democratic establishment will allow Sanders to win the nomination.

I have real fears over the consequences of a Trump presidency. Some forum members may well not be able to cope.

 

The only people who seem to like Trump are the voters.

If American democracy couldn't handle the prospect of a Trump victory then I'm afraid it must be a very fragile flower.

 

And, I have to say, I don't think it is.

 

Some people have got to get used to the fact that someone they don't like may well become their next president.

 

The morons who are voting for him seem to include at least some non-moronic people.

There are strong sections of the GOP saying that about Trump.  They think they could control him (a little), where as Cruz is off on his own plane.  My big worry about Trump is his vindictive petty nature, just look at his actions at the Scottish golf course.

 

Hillary will take massive amounts of flak from the right (despite multiple investigations finding nothing).  She is hated/despised by many on that side.   

 

I doubt whether anyone will control Trump.

 

He is vindictive, but then again that's hardly a qualify that's lacking in a lot of world leaders I can think of.

 

Hillary, incidentally, is equally despised, if not more so, by many in the Democratic Party.
