I thought it necessary to start a thread for the last Republican Presidential candidate to announce his entry into the race.

Not that there may not be a few more (God forbid! [Eek!] ), but because he apparently will be dead last in the race.

Or as FiveThirtyEight put it:

quote:
Trump is the anti-LeBron — popularity is performance in politics, and Trump is the first candidate in modern presidential primary history to begin the campaign with a majority of his own party disliking him. A whopping 57 percent of Republicans have an unfavorable view of Trump, according to an average of the three most recent polls. That beats former record holder Pat Buchanan, who had a 43 percent unfavorable rating at this point in the 2000 election cycle. Buchanan, of course, ended up running as an independent.

Taking into account name recognition, Trump’s net favorability rating (favorable minus unfavorable) of -32 percentage points stands out for its pure terribleness at this point in the campaign. Like his unfavorable rating, it is by far the worst of the 106 presidential candidates since 1980 who are in our database.

This means that any one of us would have a better favorability rating than Donald at this point. [Smile]

So let us take a moment to consider the presidential run of Donald Trump, since this will probably be the last time we ever think about it. [Big Grin]

I think Trump is doing this for the same reasons he maintains the terrible hair. He's a true believer that all publicity is good.

Jumps into a cesspool?

Jumps into a tar pit?

Jumps into a three ring circus?

Jumps into a Hell that is not circumscribed in one self place but where he is so must it and where Hell is, so must he ever be?
