Trump.

How legitimate of a candidate is Donald Trump?


My initial reaction when I heard it was "what a joke" and that he's a schmarmy A-hole.


The more I listen to him, actually talk about issues....foreign and fiscal policy, looking out for US interests first, the guys' views sound pretty darn close to mine.

He's not a legitimate presidential candidate. Yet. He needs to first become a Senator or Governor.

Too much baggage. Plus I don't think he'll actually run.

That's what I think too. Once these political slimeballs start digging dirt up on him it's over.

He's an attention whore. That's all I see.

Fiscally, I do think he would be good for the country. He's lost his ass enough to have learned some lessons, and he does know how to polish a turd into something of value.


I think he's as legit as a guy who stapled fliers to lamp posts in Chicago for a few years.....

I almost laughed about what a joke it was when I heard it, but I've watched a couple of interviews...like the one on the Today show.

The things he's said that make me check "yes" are
"we shouldn't be rebuilding schools in Afganistan that we've already built when we can't build them in Alabama, or New Orleans, or New York"
"We shouldn't go anywhere like Libya unless it's for the oil"
"we should look out for America's interests, period".

That's where I'm at. The United States should be looking out for our own people, our own interests and those of our friends, and not apologize for it. I don't think our economy can stand giving the world a piggy back ride any longer. We've got to remodel our own house, fix our own neighborhoods. We should not use our military unless it is needed, and when we do, we don't half ass it, we dont' care about hearts and minds, we break shit into tiny pieces, and reap some benefit(oil, resources) if we choose to do so.

I'd like to see the country be more fiscally responsible with our budget, stop funding dumb shit that doesn't really help anything or anyone and get our fiscal house in order.

If someone can fix our economy, be more responsible with our military and spending and foreign policy, I don't give a crap about ex wives.

He has the ability to ask some very good questions, make some observations and his opinions on what the country needs are no less valid or more valid than anyone else's.

Could he win? Likely not but he can state views that many people have and force the opposition to address the questions or issues.

His passion comes across as pretty honest.

I thought that too. I figured it was a stunt to prop up his tv show or a business or casino....


But the more I listen to him talk....the more I think It's possible I could get behind the guy.
It surprises me to feel that way, but I kind of do.

Yeah, he doesn't have the high level of integrity of our current elected officials.

I think Trump would get a bit of a pass; I don't think people would be too shocked by his past. He's kind of like the gunslinger coming to town to take care of a problem, sleezy reputation and all, and then ride off into the sunset. Can't imagine he'd screw up too much more than Obama.

Do I want him as a candidate?

No. It's been done before and he was called Ross Perot.

It would be fun to see him debating career politicians however; you know this guy would go for the jugular...his business style.

The "Donald" would shred Obama in a debate about anything related to economics and money. I'm much more interested in Donald after watching and listenening to a few interviews.

Hes not a politician, & that has a lot of appeal to Americans right now. He owes no one nothing= lobbing. He has a real chance. A lot of people like what he has to say. If he has one hitch. Its Gun control.
& yes I would vote for TRUMP in a NY second.

I don't think so. Trump could make a lot of noise with commercials and speeches, but I really wouldn't like his chances in a debate with Obama.

I actually disagree with that. I think his best chance would be to go in, try and get a bunch of momentum, and ride a sudden wave of interest. I don't think sitting in the Senate or as Governor of NY would do him much good.
