Little Marco is visiting a place called That Little Restaurant in Melbourne, Florida today.

My sources tell me there is no traffic jam. The restaurant is packed if it has 50 people; it is a good place for breakfast.

Not so much for Little Marco, apparently.

Dude should have never talked about "little hands"...



I think it's funny how well "Little Marco" has caught on. That is going to haunt him for the rest of his political career...

He's not very tall without his 4" heel
cowboy boots he always wears. Trump
still towers over him. The boots are
built up inside also. Rubio gets really
mad if you mention them. He claims
all Cuban men wear them.

Trump rally report
Scheduled start 2pm
Got to the Tampa convention center at about 1230p
Got in a real long line
After after about 30 min was only about 40 people away from entering
They shut the doors :-(
Full house
Sucks
I would estimate about 500 still in line when they shut the doors
Should have held the event in the much larger arena accross the street
About 75 protestors
A lot of political arguing betweeen protesters and Trump supporters unable to get in
Everybody was pretty civil and pretty much agreed to disagree
Very large police and sheriffs presence
I took a lot of videos of the whole crazy scene outside with the protesters and Trump supportes
Protesters had pinata with Trumps picture
Some of the Trump supporters got upset regarding the pinata being whacked with a bat
Trump suportes yelling violence wrong, protesters yelling is just a pinata
I will post pictures and videos later, chilling at a nearby bar having dinner

Go ahead...charge him...if it is not a felony or something that bars him from office, it will get him elected:

"The agency now says Trump himself could also face charges for “inciting a riot.”

"We are continuing to look at the totality of these circumstances, including any additional charges against Mr. McGraw, including the potential of whether there was conduct on the part of Mr. Trump or the Trump campaign which rose to the level of inciting a riot, and including the actions or inactions of our deputies," according to a statement from the Sheriff's Office."

Make his day!!

I don't like the guy, but negatives are often positives for him...

They're blowing that poll out of proportion.

11% are less likely to vote for him, 22% are more likely to vote for him. 66% remain unchanged.

The vast majority of people have already made up their minds on Trump (and they hate his guts).

About 35-40% of the Republican primary electorate loves him. What proportion of the general electorate is that? Not enough to get to the magical 538...

Well, at this point that's either what you accept from Trump or like if you like him.

For us, that don't care how many circus ring acts he produces we aren't going to be signing on either way, for the next one or the next thousand.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

I get the appeal of Trump. Part of me has always wanted a businessman in politics. I always wanted someone to clean up government and make it more efficient. Every government office I have ever entered is a monument of inefficiency. Take the DMV for instance Do you need

1) A person to check your paperwork when you enter
2) A separate person to hand you a number
3) A separate person to check it again and make sure it's legit
4) A separate person to take your photo
5) A separate person to hand you your ID
6) A separate person to handle the financial transaction.

Personally I think if we were really serious about cutting government waste, we could probably slash spending in government by 40% and not notice a dip in services. Now, I haven't paid close enough attention to whether that is what Trump will do or something similar, but it is my hope, and in my opinion his business acumen provides the best opportunity to make that hope a reality, that said, Trump is not my guy, but he could probably earn my vote in November, if and when my guy drops out.

He also, if you like him, pisses the correct people off

He is a master at manipulating the media. As a conservative, I have waited my entire life for a conservative who stood up to the liberal media (if you don't feel the media is liberal based, I am not interested in debating it, just illustrating why people who like him do and that is the impression many of his followers have of the media) rather than just letting them bully him. My number 1 criticism of Bush, was acting as if getting into the day to day minutia of the Presidency by answering critics was beneath the office caused him to lose his message and vision with the American people

I personally think both sides have some good ideas, and both have some awful ones. I see the need for social programs, but at the same time, I don't measure the success of them by how many people are taking advantage of them, but rather by how many people no longer need them. I have been in many poor areas of towns, done volunteer work and have concluded that while these programs help these struggling families week to week and month to month on the surface, they provide them a baseline that is sufficient enough to not seriously seek to improve their lot in life. Please don't interpret that as if I am saying there aren't success stories from people coming out of social programs, there certainly are, but they are more the exception than the rule. With that line of thinking that he is liberal on some things, conservative on others also gives the impression he isn't tied down to any one single party, despite the fact he is running as a Republican. I think many Trump voters are tired of voting for the lesser of two evils,

There is more, but I think that is a basis of why people who like Trump, like him
