Good luck "proving" what is "fair". People will dismiss Trump because of his hair, or because he's a Republican, or because he is a man. You can't prove that their biases are fair or unfair. People are entitled to disagree with you on their perception of fair, or what a good president looks like. Sorry, I just hate any statements in these soft sciences that deal in absolutes.

This voter sees it this way... He has 8.5 billion, at the expense of failed AC casinos. His other bankruptcies also helped him along.
So we have an empty suit thats bankrupting the general population at the expense of the penal system and justice system.
We really don't need a well-manicured suit doing the same, the expenses are higher.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

Yeah, I think in the wake of Occupy, all the bankers who never got punished for their transgressions, and the widely held understanding that the rich are getting richer at the expense of the middle class, Donald has seriously misunderstood how appealing his personal story will be now. Particularly with the Trump name on bankrupt casinos that put thousands out of work. IMHO, this will be the issue that derails his campaign; he's going to get hammered.

America is looking for a new voice. If Trump can hit all the right buttons, he just might have a chance, maybe not win but at least to be in the running. Even the Republicans are going to crucify him because he is not on their agenda as a viable (predetermined) candidate.

Well he can go broke then get rich again. All the other presidents just know how to go broke.

I so hope he wins, it will be fun. This is coming from a democrat.

I think you are correct in your thinking Babs. But he's also going to get hammered for a dozen other reasons. The two that pop immediately to mind are. He's just not very bright. His understanding of both foreign and domestic policy is laughable minimal. Two, he's a really un-likeable guy, he surrounds himself with yes men so he probably thinks people love him. But I think at heart he's a bombastic windbag, with a massive ego, who doesn't know poop from shinola. The more the American people get to know him the less they will like him. He's also completely unprepared for how hard it is to run for president. He's never worked that hard in his life. It should be fun to watch him self-destruct. He'll be out of the race before it really gets going I'd bet.

Not sure what will happen to Trump but your statements remind me of everything that was said about Ronald Reagan when he ran for president.
