"In politics, it's not about what you support. It's about how you present yourself as far as getting elected is concerned."
How the hell is Trump the frontrunner then? He's presenting himself as a whiny brat who can't tolerate being called anything bad and must boast about himself every chance he gets?
If that were true Trump wouldn't be where he is right now.
This is why closed elections should be banned
Unfortunately this is true
Disagree. I prefer a civil and genteel candidate, but the stereotypical republican has a rubber spine and stands for the wrong things. I'll a dirty trickster that advances my political goals over a Romney, graham, or kasich, anytime.
"Take" a dirty trickster.....
You represent the views of the people that vote you into office as their representative. So, the emphasis should be on getting elected, to do what the people want done. Not so much, on what the candidate wants to do.
It is, of course, both.
That may be true for a lot of voters.
A mix of both.
Of course! How else could Donald Trump be the front runner?
