Why do Republicans voters love Trump?

I can understand watching this guy on TV. He is very entertaining to watch and the stuff he say is funny to hear but why would any sane person vote for him to president. He lies more than the average politicaltion. He is good at real state but anything outside of that he fails. I mean everything! What Trump is really good at is talking about his self and using other people money. What's the deal with that?

Because he is anti-establishment.  Many people are sick of the status quo, sick of gov't lies, sick of BS at every possible junket, PR, speech - when they see someone saying what others feel - its easy to say "hey this guy isnt like all the other clones - I like him" and then the crazy stuff is swept under the rug.

Or its the fact if Satan himself ran for POTUS - it'd be better than that moron Ted Cruz (so embarrassed he's from TX)

As T3X4S said, he's not establishment. But more so because at this point, the GOP is splitting itself whether by choice or not. We have guys like John McCain and his ilk who are RINOS. Democrats have infiltrated, quite successfully, the GOP party. the GOP party in and of itself has no platform anymore. Trump, I'm not 100% behind him, there are a lot of question marks about him. to be quite candid about this, whoever becomes president won't be able to do anything, We are broke, no amount of good work will bring us out. But as history has shown us, GOP presidents have been the only ones shot or murdered during office except Kennedy because Kennedy grew a conscience.

Look at what we have to choose from, everyone else running has held political office, just like everyone before them. They are all bought and paid for.

In my opinion, As far as the democrats go, they want to keep people in poverty so they can give them government assistance motivates them to keep wanting to vote for them.

Which is why a lot of centrist Democrats (they still exist; especially in the fifty-plus age group) have been crossing over (where possible) to vote for Trump in the GOP primaries that are open - Ohio didn't turn on them, but Michigan and Illinois did.

The face of the Democratic party has become "causes" (from environmentalism to political correctness); they are perfectly willing to throw the traditional party planks (such as employment domestically and fair trade) under the bus for them.  (That is why both Trump and Sanders - a decidedly untraditional Democrat - are kicking butt and taking names in the Rust Belt.)

Thanks, Nick; I can't understand why the OP didn't post in DP directly.

While I agree with everything they were saying, the video was still much more enjoyable on Mute.

I just saw them live on Watter's World. If it were muted then you better be good at reading lips. They were Democrats.

And you don't think Donald Trump could be bought?

So much for the "monolithic Democrat" myth - I've been trying to expose THAT myth since my first post in Domestic Politics.  (However, DocM has done a much better job of it.)  Folks will split their votes when they feel failed by individual pols of their party of choice; they will change parties altogether when the party itself fails them (typically by abandoning basic political positions/planks).  Both parties have done that, and in this election cycle, it stands out like sore hands.  And for the Democrats asking where THEY failed, I have two rather basic policy planks that you failed horrifically with - employment (specifically, domestic employment) and fair trade.  Both have been basic DNC political planks since Kennedy, if not earlier - and you have thrown BOTH of them under the bus.

No, he does not quite need the money.

How did I fail on anything.  I posted a Video. As for the Democrats running, one is a Socialist, the other is a Pathological liar that will soon be indicted.

I wasn't referring to you, Gary7; I was referring to those that have tried and tried (and tried) to perpetuate the myth of "once a Democrat, always a Democrat".

He has been hocking this wine and other merchandise on the campaign trail. Looks more like the home shopping network, than a political gathering.

 

He may or may not need the money (depending on who you believe), but he needs the power. The ego boost. Remember, he almost went bankrupt again in 2011.

No he did not, a few of his companies did, Casinos I think. The Home shopping network stuff was supposed to be sarcastic.

We've been hearing about Hillary being "indicted soon" for years now. Everything the GOP have thrown at her seems to fail. I'll believe it when I see it. But what makes Hillary lying any different than Trump lying? Hillary lies and she's the the she devil but Trump lies and he's cheered and exalted. Even fox news has noticed his lying.

The FBI is throwing stuff at her now, they are not Political.

And other non-pols haven't done the same thing?  I can name two that are still at it - one of them, in fact, predates even Donald Trump; Ron Popeil is STILL at it (infomercials, that is) and he predates Trump by a few years; never mind that he isn't as relevant there as he used to be - he has, in fact, been superseded by TWO "infomercial kings"; one of them being Steve Rosen of SharkNinja.  That's right - DESPITE SharkNinja actually succeeding in both retail and e-tail, they STILL do infomercials - starring Rosen.  And it's not like Rosen (or even SharkNinja) needs the money.  What you are REALLY saying is that you wish Trump would return to obscurity; however, isn't that up to Trump?

hagjohn - it's a stall; even you yourself have admitted as much.  The DNC has no bench (literally - Sanders is surviving on sheer gall alone) - what happens when the stall runs down (and she faces the bar of justice - either pre-election OR - far worse - AFTER the election)?  If President Obama pardons her pre-election, it will sink her campaign deader than pardoning Nixon sunk Gerald Ford.  Who do you think Hillary will choose as her running-mate?  (Biden is out.)  If Sanders, that would almost be asking for misery merely on the domestic-economy front, let alone foreign policy/national-security front.  And why is Hillary lying acceptable, yet Trump lying is not?

Are these other guys running for President?

 

Obscurity is not something Trump knows anything about. I'm not for any of the people running for president. Consistency dictates that a liar is a liar. One lie isn't better or worse than the other. Hillary would be bad for the economy but I also know someone whose gone into bankruptcy 4 times will also not be good for the economy. We should be looking for someone to lead us who has integrity, not all the fools we have now.

 

This is the first year, I'm actually thinking of not voting. That is how bad I think these people are. Even the lesser of the 2 evils is so bad, that I'm having a hard time thinking about pulling the lever (or in my case tapping on the touchscreen).

From an outside perspective, he isn't bought and paid for like everyone else. And that's the real reason why nothing ever gets done ( at least nothing beneficial to the people). That's true everywhere in the world. Corporations, donors, and special interests own politics, politicians, and governments. I've yet to meet a single person, irrespective of political ideology, who doesn't agree that's the fundamental problem with politics. It's also the reason why candidates like Bernie Sanders and Trump are resonating with so many people, some of which like both of them.

 

Of course that's not the only reason. He's entirely politically incorrect (which is very alluring in an age of cringe-worthy political correctness), fights back against the naysayers and never apologises, seems like he genuinely wants to improve the lives of Americans, and promotes American interests first (fair trade, secure borders) instead of globalist policies that hurt the people and help big business. I wish we had someone like him here in the UK to stand up for us first and foremost. To some extent, we're debating the same issues with the so called brexit. Though unfortunately our politicians are all short-sighted and self-serving weasels who let countries like China decimate our steel industry through dumping and currency manipulation.

That's not news to anyone; however, what makes Trump in particular any different from other spotlight pigs in any field (including politics)?

 

Still, there IS the fact that he has more successes than failures, and even bankruptcy (business) didn't keep him down.  If anything, he has more business success than Mitt Romney - despite those same bankruptcies.  Given the choice,, would you rather have someone with NO experience in business at all (which is true of all the other options in the race - of both parties) vs. someone that had some failures (but more successes than failures)?
