    The rhetoric coming from Trump and his surrogates is uncomfortably un-American. Even if he loses our country has shown it is willing to turn down a very dark path with little to no recourse.

    This trump obsession is also outrageous and wild. Why is this a new thread?

    While its true that the OP could have posted this in the Trump thread, its odd you think creating a thread about Trump's insanity is considered "trump obsession"... since this is a discussion group about politics and Trump is the republican candidate for President. Since he says insane things virtually every day, there is an almost endless source for new posts... :grin:

    I don't see how any sane person votes for this buffoon.


    The only way it happens is because people listen to the smear tactics against Hillary (not that she's a saint), and feel he's the lesser of two evils. In that case, don't vote.

    It certainly seems like Trump has done almost everything possible to lose the election yet according to polling this isn't a blowout. That does speak to Clinton's own weakness but it also does show that there is a very significant portion of the population that not only supports Trump but believes with and agrees with what he says even when he contradicts himself.

    ~30% GOP base fully support Trump
    ~70% of GOP base want to support Trump, and a huge majority of them will anyway

    Maybe < 10% of non-GOP will support him

    If party identity is not involved, I suspect he would lose 70% to 30%. Since party identity is involved, it's closer to 50% to 45% with 5% going elsewhere.

    I don't think I'm surprised or amazed anymore by the bigoted, hateful, and un-American things that Trump says. The next time he says something won't be any different than the last 20 times he said something crazy/dangerous/un-American.

    What I am very interested in, is how Trump's supporters agree with him and support him when he says things that go directly against our constitution. He's issued statements advocating policies that go against the first amendment with freedom of religion. His statement about subjecting American citizens to military trials in Guantanamo and stripping them of the protections of the American constitution is also un-American.

    I'm interested why people will still support a candidate that holds those positions.
