Yep,I have changed my mind.Carson is a good guy and I had hoped he was up for this.....but,
now I dont think so.The way this country is going I think maybe Trump is the only one with what it will take to keep us strong.

I think Trump won't care if he is re-elected or not which I would see as a big plus. I also don't think he would have any problem coming before the people and saying whats what without worrying about his poll numbers. Biggest danger is, are there enough people who are sick of both parties to elect him ? I think we all know that even though he is running as a Republican, he doesn't have that bent to follow the party line.

I don't think people care as much about a party anymore.I may be wrong.They want to fix the mess we are in.
This is not a kinder(vote for a minority)gentler(vote for a woman)nation anymore.That crap don't fly.
Like it or not,some kind of war is coming,and we don't want a wimp leader!

I'll vote for anyone so long as it's not Hillary.  If I have to listen to her for 4-8 years, I'll lose it.
So afraid she's going to win.

I REALLY would prefer Dr Carson...not because he's a Physician, but because he appears to be very sincere and honest...but I'm going to go with Trump...yes I like quite a bit of what he says so far...we need someone that tramps about with steel toed boots and a massive stick (as Roosevelt didn't say...).  We need a FRIGHTFULLY massive STEAMROLLER that is willing to not give a flying FIG what people say or think about him...someone that's not afraid to do the unpopular things it's going to take to get this Republic turned around and going the way it should be...but don't forget we aren't going anywhere or accomplishing ANYTHING without a massive group effort of PRAYER and enough people to quit doing the PC crap that has invaded our nation....THAT, my friends, is what it's going to take to get the Good Lord's Hand to protect us like He used to...but, sadly, I'm afraid we have let the PC minority and their pansy a$$ed ways grow too strong for the Lord to step back in...I desperately pray that my suspicions are just the disillusioned part of me that longs for Goodness and Right to return to this, our Great Nation...the only solution I can see is for our ENTIRE Nation to start or continue to send God all the KNEE mail we can!!!  JMHHO...   Rant is over...

I would like to see Trump get it, but he needs to change his attitude to appeal to more people in order to win. His style pushes many away. My big fear is that he may not get the nomination, especially if it goes to a brokered convention. If he fails to get the nomination he may try the Independent route, which will, like happened before with Ross Perot, give the democrats a win with less than a majority.

I think it will be Cruz or Rubio vs Hillary.  Not convinced Hillary will make it through to election time.  Dragging Bill out won't help her. He looks, acts old as dirt now, his charm has faded.  Will just reinforce the "age" thing when it comes to Grammy Hillary. Be interesting to see if she steps it up a few notches campaigning and her availability to press as Iowa and NH heat up. If for some reason she doesn't cut it, make it through for some reason, I guess Joe (Yikes) or Elizabeth Warren would be the Dem. nominee. Surely to goodness, not Bernie. Doubt the DNC would be behind him.

Yeah, and if a buddy of Obama is against Trump that just gives me more reason to like Trump.

"Congenital Liar", is what William Sapphire, editor of the New York Times, said about Hillary way back when Bill was President.   Hasn't changed a bit!

Trump has momentum, but in the general election he may well bring out more of the liberal base which will benefit hil-liar-y or whoever is the democrat candidate. His statements infuriate many on the left and some independent voters to the point that many who would have sat out the vote because of disliking hil-liar-y or Sanders, will actually come out to vote against Trump.
True, a debate between Trump and hil-liar-y would be interesting, but he would have to bone up on many facts first and not rely on innuendo or rumor and drop his baseless attacks that he has used in the past few months.
The person who could actually tie hil-liar-y in knots is Cruz. He has far more intelligence than Trump and would do his homework before any debate. Trump often relies on his ego and stature rather than skill in debates.
I like many of Trumps ideas, but he actually would be a poor choice due to his ego unless he would actually begin to listen to advice and not think he is the smartest in the room like the current WH occupant does. No President can be an expert on everything and must rely on good advice. This could be Trump's strong area, picking the right experts, if he would just listen to them.

Cruz with his legal and court background has an edge in any debate against hil-liar-y. According to many sources that have known him through the years say he studies every issue to the smallest detail, and was always more prepared than any opponent in court. Even the old liberal, Alan Dershowitz who was Cruz's law professor, said that he was one of the most brilliant students he ever taught.
Cruz is not well liked but the whole point of this election is to get the liberals out of the WH and assure that the Supreme Court does not go liberal. In order to do that, the GOP must have a candidate that many of the undecided independents and disgusted democrats will accept. Kasich would have fit that nitch although many hard right in the GOP would not accept him due to his moderate views on some issues. Rubio could also have fit in there, but his in-experience took him down. That leaves only Cruz as the alternative and even he has enraged many because of his views and stated policies he would bring about.
 In the general election, if hil-liar-y is the candidate against Trump, it will be a very close race and the edge may well go to
 hil-liar-y due to the minority and Hispanic votes. Cruz versus hil-liar-y would be more favorable to the GOP if the moderate republicans would just get out and vote for him.
Sanders and his socialist views would get waxed once the tax increases required for his ideas were made know through political ads prior to the election.
