Can You Explain Trump’s Popularity?

The 2016 election is starting to heat up…..unfortunately NOT in a good way…….once again the cancerous growth of stupidity in politics is infecting the body politic………

I see that Mr. Donald Trump has gained the respect of every old fart white guy in America.  All he has to do is flash that hair and say something ignorant about immigrants and his poll numbers will go up…..

I cannot understand how anyone who cares about this country can support a person with zero ideas to serve that country…….but they are there holding their breath with every word he utters……waiting for his next piece of hyperbole.

The more he rattles the more those pea brains find him acceptable……anyone who pays into his candidacy cares nothing for the country but will listen to the utter insanity of a carney sideshow……….the man has NO ideas….. he is a carney barker at Best……but with that said……can you explain is popularity?

Maybe this will help…….they say (whoever ‘they’ are) that ads are aimed at the lowest denominator, in other words those with the attention span of a gnat, and the comprehension level of a 7th grader… for Trump……..

Is Donald Trump smarter than a fifth grader? Maybe so, but his vocabulary hovers around a third- or fourth-grade reading level. So says Jack Shafer at Politico: Trump “prefers to link short, blocky words into other short, blocky words to create short, blocky sentences that he then stacks into short, blocky paragraphs,” Shafer writes. According to the Flesch-Kincaid grade-level test, Trump spoke like a fourth-grader at the August 6 Republican presidential debate, where Ted Cruz talked like a ninth-grader and three others—Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, and Ben Carson—hit the eighth-grade mark. Trump’s low grade “wasn’t a fluke,” adds Shafer, as the candidate “earned only a 3rd-grade score” at a Michigan news conference on August 11.

How does Trump do it? Well, he relies on “great” and “very” and loves “we” and “I,” the latter being what Schafer calls “his favorite word.” And Trump loves pummeling political opponents with “idiots,” “morons,” “dumb,” “haters,” “losers,” “total losers,” and other to-the-point words. “In a freakish way, Trump resembles that of Muhammad Ali at his prime—except the champ was always kidding (even when he was right) while Trump seems to believe his claims (and often is wrong),” writes Shafer. Yet Trump’s pared-down vocabulary “has not caused him much political pain,” Shafer notes, possibly because “too many politicians talk over the public’s head when more should be talking beneath it in the hope of winning elections.” Click for Shafer’s full piece.

Maybe if that explanation is not to your liking then this one could assist your understanding the answer to the question…….


Donald Trump, mad king of the GOP: What his surging popularity reveals about Republican extremism –

      1. To be honest…I have been a socialist most of my life….I cannot think of anything that would be better for the socialist movement than a Prez Trump….sick…I know…..chuq

      2. Me either…it is just a fleeting thought I have from time to time….usually when the coffee runs out….Haha….chuq

      3. Deep down I am still that revolutionary socialist I was in my youth….just too damn old to be serious….Haha…..chuq

      4. Understand….just his thinking would be good for the movement if he can really influence others….beyond curiosity….

  2. Looked at logically, his support isn’t that huge. If we assume the Republican Party makes up roughly 50% of this country, which is a big assumption given that independent, decline to states, and third party adherents make up a sizable portion of the country, his current support of roughly 30% in the Republican Party equates to something less than 15% of the population. Likely, actually significantly less than that, but let’s just say it is 15% because some of those independent, decline to states, and third party adherents likely are intrigued by him as well. That there are 15% of the people in this country who want to be treated like the dummies they are and fall all over themselves to support this guy is not surprising. Or discouraging, to be honest. When he actually wins the nomination, I’ll start to worry. The reality is that once the Republican race gets winnowed down a bit, he’ll end up somewhere other than in first place.

    1. I agree….there is NO way a mental midget like Trump will ever get the nomination…..just sad that he is drawing crowds and spouting racist crap that some agree with……there is my concern….chuq

      1. Yes. It’s hard to see the focus being paid to him and how he is getting egged on. I watched a clip from his interview with Hannity a few days ago and was just stunned by the egomania and stupidity reflected in his answer. How will you deal with Iran? We’ll make them like us. Sheesh…

  3. Perhaps the Toupe has been hired by the true oligarchs to perform a public survey. They are testing the populace to see how effective their campaign to “dumb down” the American voting public has been the last few years.

    They were so encouraged by the 50+ million who voted for Romney, a proven liar and thief, in the last election, they’ve trotted out the Toupe, a man so obviously unqualified he has to tie his tongue in knots to keep from laughing when making speeches, to see just how many REALLY FUCKING STUPID PEOPLE are now registered voters…

    Good intel, to measure the degree of gullibility now extant in the average American’t…..

    gigoid, the dubious

    1. You stole my toupe!
      Roman poet Ovid wrote Ars Amatoria (“The Art of Love”) in which he expressed “Ugly are hornless bulls, a field without grass is an eyesore, So is a tree without leaves, so is a head without hair…

      Stil,l I guess Trumpy needs help……

  4. I think he may be saying what a lot of people are thinking but don’t have the guts to say out loud – we’re so wonderfully politically correct these days…
