I'm just curious. They have the numbers but it only takes a few to vote the wrong way or duck the vote. This has happened before.

I have worryingly pleasant visions of something having to do with a certain Hannibal, fava beans and a nice Chianti.
You've just cause several of my favorite posts in this thread to make no sense! Boooo!

He certainly knows how to campaign (and where to campaign). And he did intiute what contemporary Republican voters wanted early on at a time when party elites thought that Jeb! Bush was a real heavyweight.

It takes no genius to appeal to the under educated, none too bright, racists and bigots: just tell them what they want to hear and truth be damned.

Trump has done an awesome job of sitting in a barrel, thereby providing an excellent target for investigation into all his shady dealings.

No, I don't think that he' been hiding in barrel. Actually, what you seem to think is a barrel appears to be all Trump!
