On The Numbers

Rich Takes! On the Numbers:

Donald Trump has proven himself to be a petulant school boy, not unlike our current POTUS.

If anyone doesn’t agree with anything he says, his first response is to launch a character assassination attack, not unlike Saul Alinsky.

A very small Political Action Committee, consisting of one woman with a 20,000.00 budget recently posted a graphic meme featuring Melania in a nude photo shoot, asking the question is this what your next first lady should look like. I think it is a legitimate question, certainly the Dem’s opposition research files already were well aware of this shoot, which was published by Gentleman’s Quarterly in the UK around fifteen years ago. GQ-UK loves it, and they reposted the original article for all of our peeping Tom urges, and hits of course.

What is not commonly reported is that the shoot was taken on Donald’s gold-laden Boeing 727 jet at the time. Obviously with his full approval and knowledge. Now Trump and his people are laying the blame for this on Cruz, when we don’t even know if she even supports Cruz. By Federal law, it is illegal for POTUS campaigns to have any communication with PACs anyway. The Donald has only himself to blame, he approved the shoot, and now he should approve it again.

As always, my comments are in cayenne.

Can Donald Trump or Ted Cruz Beat Hillary Clinton? A New National Poll May Surprise You

Not only does Trump lose to Hillary, the Senate and maybe even the House turns Democrat. How does Majority Leader Chuck Schumer sound to you?

>>Trump trails Hillary 54-36, and even if that’s a bit of an outlier, it is consistent with a long track record of Trump trailing Hillary badly, including by double digits in 5 of the last 7 national polls; the RCP polling average now has Trump down 50.4 to 39.0, a result that would lose him more than 40 states and have catastrophic down-ticket results for Republicans in the Senate and House. <<

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton viewed unfavorably by majority – CBS/NYT poll

“…registered voters nationwide now hold negative opinions of the political parties’ current frontrunners. More than half of voters have unfavorable views of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump; each has a net negative rating in the double-digits.”

Hills’ negatives are only 55%. The Donald’s are 59% These are the respective front-runners, unbelievable in a sane world.

Mark Levin: I fear we’re going to get BLOWN OUT in the general election

It’s nearly a certainty if Trump wins the nomination. In over 150 national head to head polls, Trump loses most by double digits in all and loses in all but two to Hillary who is the weakest candidate that I’ve ever seen. In just the last few days, here are some numbers:

Rich TAkes! On Stopping The Trump Train

This edition of Rich TAkes! leads off with a few stories about the San Bernadino shooter’s iPhone 5c.

Has Obama recognized that this couple were radical jihadis yet? Anyway, the FBI apparently tried to change the phone or the iCloud password, and got themselves completely locked out of the phone, so that is why they got a court order to force Apple to create software which completely bypasses the built in encryption and security in iOS. Apple will be appealing, and the outcome will have grave consequences for us all if the government prevails.

Next, the 11th Republican debate just concluded in Detroit. This is perhaps the wildest run up to the general election that we may ever see in our lifetimes. We have a real estate developer, and self-made brand in Donald Trump who is energizing the electorate even more than Obama did in 2008, and he’s not even close to being a conservative. The GOP is getting desperate, especially since the closest rival is Ted Cruz who actually stands by his principles. The establishment GOP is so desperate that Mitt Romney actually gave a speech today which he must have gleaned off of any anti-Trump web page listing Trump’s numerous faults and failures, while openly advocating to deny Trump a first ballot nomination at the convention. I wonder what rules will need to be changed? If Romney is angling to swoop in and save the party in a brokered convention he is kidding himself.

I don’t trust Trump since he has taken three sides to nearly every topic, and his foreign policy credibility is greatly suspect. For example, last fall he said to let the Russians take out ISIS, and reversed himself mere days later.

As I noted last August, Trump has done the Republican Party a great service by getting people who would not take much interest in the process into the fray, but don’t kid yourself, he is not a conservative. He doesn’t even know what the meaning of the word is. He may also be helping the GOP to disintegrate, since the GOP has only themselves to blame for this interesting turn of events.

“may you live in interesting times” might be appropriate here. I hope you enjoy the
