New National Poll Of GOP Primary Voters Has Trump Leading With 41% – Outnumbered

Cruz, Rubio, Carson vie for second
West Long Branch, NJ

The latest
Monmouth University Poll
finds Donald Trump building a
commanding national lead in the race for the Republican nomination
Ted Cruz is slightly ahead of Ben
Carson and Marco Rubio in the second tier, while all other candidates poll
well below 5 percent. The poll
also finds, however, that Republican voters other than Trump or Cruz supporters feel the frontrunner does
not have the right temperament to be president.
When Republicans and Republican leaning voters are asked who they would support for the GOP
nomination for president, Donald Trump
leads the pack at 41%
Ted Cruz (14%), Marco Rubio (10%),
and Ben Carson (9%) are far behind. All of the other ten candidates tested poll in the low single digits,
including Jeb Bush (3%), John
Kasich (3%), Chris Christie (2%), Carly Fiorina (2%), Mike Huckabee
(2%), and Rand Paul (2%). All but Huckabee have been invited to the main stage for tomorrow’s debate.

It’s Too Late to Turn Off Trump

Matt Taibbi

Lots of people have remarked on the irony of this absurd caricature of a spoiled rich kid connecting so well with working-class America. But Trump does have something very much in common with everybody else. He watches TV. That’s his primary experience with reality, and just like most of his voters, he doesn’t realize that it’s a distorted picture.

If you got all of your information from TV and movies, you’d have some pretty dumb ideas. You’d be convinced blowing stuff up works, because it always does in our movies. You’d have no empathy for the poor, because there are no poor people in American movies or TV shows – they’re rarely even shown on the news, because advertisers consider them a bummer.

Politically, you’d have no ability to grasp nuance or complexity, since there is none in our mainstream political discussion. All problems, even the most complicated, are boiled down to a few minutes of TV content at most. That’s how issues like the last financial collapse completely flew by Middle America. The truth, with all the intricacies of all those arcane new mortgage-based financial instruments, was much harder to grasp than a story about lazy minorities buying houses they couldn’t afford, which is what Middle America still believes.

Trump isn’t just selling these easy answers. He’s also buying them. Trump is a TV believer. He’s so subsumed in all the crap he’s watched – and you can tell by the cropped syntax in his books and his speech, Trump is a watcher, not a reader – it’s all mixed up in his head.

He surely believes he saw that celebration of Muslims in Jersey City, when it was probably a clip of people in Palestine.

When he says, “I have a great relationship with the blacks,” what he probably means is that he liked watching The Cosby Show.

In this he’s just like millions and millions of Americans, who have all been raised on a mountain of unthreatening caricatures and clichés.

TV is a world in which the customer is always right, especially about hard stuff like race and class. Trump’s ideas about Mexicans and Muslims are typical of someone who doesn’t know any, except in the shows he chooses to watch about them.

This world of schlock stereotypes and EZ solutions is the one experience a pampered billionaire can share with all of those “paycheck-to-paycheck” voters the candidates are always trying to reach.

TV is the ultimate leveling phenomenon. It makes everyone, rich and poor, equally incapable of dealing with reality.

That’s why it’s so ironic that some people think the solution to the Trump problem is turning him off. What got us into this mess was the impulse to change the channel the moment we feel uncomfortable. Even if we take the man off the air, the problem he represents is still going to be there, just like poverty, corruption, mass incarceration, pollution and all of the other things we keep off the airwaves.
