Compared to 2015, has your personal favorability rating of Donald Trump as a presidential candidate increased or decreased in 2016?
Decreasing. Never like or trusted the man. He is too full of himself. The way he plays on the fears and hatred in the nation is disgusting.
Once an idiot always an idiot except besides everything he is an obnoxious, self-righteous bully!
Decreased. I can't stand bullies, blowhards or conceit, but I support his cause & his desire to make positive changes & do so very quickly, so If I cannot vote for Bernie, I will support Trump 2000%.
I never thought it possible, but I like him less the more I,see and hear him.
I never liked him to begin with.
Increased. Solely because he makes whiny people sad.
Trump is well known for being whiney but he also makes other people whiney
Which is dumb because he has no chance
Before he ran it was at a 0, or neutral. Now it's about at -110 out of -100.
It has gone down so much, that it has drilled through The Earth's Crust, and has come right back out at The South Pole.
This dudes ego is scary. Too unstable for me. But the fact that so many people are willing to vote for him should be a huge wake up call. Middle America is pissed. The village idiots in DC better wake up because they have about pushed the liberal agenda and PC-mess beyond the tolerance level of most folks.
I hate his policies but I almost want to vote for him just to spite the idiots who oppose him just to be on the bandwagon
There are some things I agree with with Trump, you got to give credit where credits due, but still, the man has no grasp on economics
Decreased. I can't believe people actually think he cares about us and about America when he's clearly in the running along with Kanye west for world's most egotistical maniac.
Anticipating the Great Cuckeral Exodus of 2016 (GCE2) after Ēl Dónaldo takes the White House, I am investing in Delta and Greyhound stocks.
It's hard to decrease more, but Trump never fails to do so.
Trump is going all the way!!!
I don't trust him.
At best he is a business man who's opinion will change with the publics. If the Dems ever control the congress he'll flip parties instantly .
At worst he's a secret dem. just about every stupid thing he has said is the kind of lies democrats force feed their followers about what republicans want, he clearly has no idea what we really want. Freedom, justice, and compassion.
Trump is the answer to the question, "How could someone as bad as Hillary Clinton actually reach the office of President of the United States?"
Trump said he had $200 million in 1974, much of it from his father. Check the math. If he'd put that money into an S&P 500 Index Fund in 1974, he'd have significantly more money than he has today. He's not a great businessman.
Trump is a national embarrassment.
All five of these people running to be the leader of the USA suck. It's scary how bad they suck.
Decreased. I like him as a personality and as a businessman, but he's shown himself to be an absolutely disposable politician.
Despicable and disposable, haha.
I used to not know anything about Trump. Now he is one of my least favorite people on earth.
He's still not Bashar al-Assad, Vladimir Putin, or Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi though. It could be worse.
Sure, but we don't have to worry about Assad becoming the President of the United States. With Trump as the leader of the free world, the damage could be so much worse.
Not that I agree with him on issues, but watching the GOP establishment screw him over when he's maintaining their own platform has made me sympathize with him.
i.e., WITCH HUNT.
Strange to say increased but I think he may be s little bit smarter than what I thought at first. Sometimes I think he knows exactly what he's saying.
Big wind ,
I didn't think it could get any lower, but I gotta say, he has surprised me.
I still think he's running some crazy sham and secretly filming the process for some reality show - all paid for by Clinton money!
(My conspiracy theory)
I wish he would disappear forever.
And by disappear I mean out of the political scene...id never wish harm on the man.
I dunno. I might wish him a nasty case of the runs. Not like life-threatening or anything. But something temporary and unpleasant.
He has a nasty case of the runs every time he gets behind a microphone. The only difference is that the s*** comes out of his mouth instead of his butt.
These comments made my day. I had a rotten day at work, so thank you both for making me laugh. Lol
Hahaha! This thread. Awesome.
Oh, please, no, bethany! Then he'd just be telling us all about what a great case of the runs it was, the best diarrhea anyone ever had, and how he knows the best diarrhea...
At least that would be closer to the truth than what he's usually spouting.
Oh god, Susan. You made me snort my beer!
He's so obnoxious. He's a caricature of what a liberal thinks a conservative looks like. He has probably already cost us the election because when he loses the nomination at the convention, he will blow everything up and his moron supporters will never vote for the real conservative nominee, Cruz.
He is the Republican Party personified with an orange now wrapped around it.
I don't know. With that awful fake tan, orange might be appropriate. Haha!
I like that out of all the polls, even Trump can't beat Hillary's unfavorability rate.
I thought he was an annoying celebrity, but now I understand how dangerous he really is.
How is he dangerous?
His proposals include:
• Breaking free trade deals like NAFTA and the TPP
• Banning all Muslim immigration
• Initiating a trade war with China
• Building a wall along the Mexican border
• Acting as a neutral mediator in Israeli-Palestinian relations
• Escalating tensions in the South China Sea (nuclear weapons)
• Scaling back involvement with NATO and other international organizations
...among others. Not to mention the dangerous rhetoric, the divisiveness, and the immaturity we've seen from him throughout his campaign. He has zero political experience and is completely ignorant on foreign policy. He has been roundly criticized by the global community, including many of our closest allies.
In what way is he *not* dangerous?
He wants to ban all Muslim immigration because ISIS has said that they will imbed terrorists inside those immigrants. He wants to build a wall to help stop illegal immigration, and just so you know Mexico has a wall all along their southern border but we don't consider them racist. The Chinese are the ones escalating tensions be said they are slowly expanding their territory by building man made islands further and further out to sea. He wants to reduce involvement with NATO mainly because we are the country that pays for 75% of NATO's budget, we send the most troops and what do we get? Nothing in return. In conclusion Donald trump wants to bring jobs back to America and he wants our allies to protect themselves without our help. The only reason why so many people hate him is because the media blows up and manipulates even the tiniest thing he says. So take everything you hear with a grain of salt.👌🏻
He's trying to bring first-world jobs back to a fully developed, third-world economy. His version of strong isolationism would only hurt our allies and the stability we are responsible for protecting in today's world. The Mexico wall is a bad idea because of the cost and the implications, not racism (though the proposed actions against Muslims aren't so far from the way we treated Japanese-Americans during WW2). I'm fully aware of the situation in the SC Sea; Trump's proposals thus far would only make things worse than they already are. It's incredibly short-sighted to argue we get nothing from NATO, we depend on our alliances to operate effectively in other parts of the world.
I don't care about the media. They don't matter. What does matter is his actual policy proposals, his despicable personality, and how uninformed he is on so many issues, especially international affairs.
Decreased. Him bitching about not being able to win delegates in Colorado should be truly embarrassing. Of course, like all Liberals, Donald Trump has no shame.
Can't go lower than zero.
Yeah, you can. It called negative infinity.
I didn't think my opinion of him as a slimy, disgusting, mean-spirited narcissistic bloviating petulant childish asshole son of a bitch could sink any lower than it already was before his campaign started. But it has.
Decreased. I've gone from laughing to being seriously concerned.
Honestly I don't think it could decrease
He's an orange asshole and the only benefit his existence serves is to identify which of the people I know are stupid as fuck.
He's obviously not stupid if he's a billionaire and has had many successful businesses.
4 bankruptcies, failed ventures galore, that inherited money would have done better in a simple index fund than it has under his stewardship -- you can easily Google all these things.
Four bankruptcies sure, out of how many successful businesses??? Oh wait that's right 500!
Orange- he's the oompahloompa of the Republican Party. Oh, wait. The Oompaloompas sang about good morals. So maybe not.
Wow that's the only reason you don't like him??😂 pathetic.
Gilgamesh, the reasons I dislike him are too many to list. I'm sure many others who oppose him would say the same.
Okay, if you have too many reasons to list why don't you give me small sample of maybe 2 or 3 of those reasons?
zero elected office experience, boorish behavior, inflammatory statements, general ignorance
He's the personification of everything much of the civilized world hates about Americans:
Ignorant, loud-mouthed, and low-class.
Stayed the same. I've seen right through him all along. He's a liar and a charlatan.
Ban shredded cheese.
Make America grate again!!!
You are all liars and haters. Lies, lies lies.
Way to be specific in your dude. Er...
I actually say "increased" because I want to see how much damage he can do to the GOP and the 2 party system in general.
My opinion hasn't changed. He has Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and has no business in public office.
I said decreased, but it was already pretty low. I remember his hiring undocumented Polish immigrants to save money and his questionable business associates. When hotel workers strike, his come to work. And it wasn't because the loved their jobs. When you pay twice as much as a property is worth, you get some "perks" thrown in. He's a loser with connections, nothing more.
He's a joke. Plain and simple.
Decreased. I along with most people thought his campaign was just a joke at first. I sort of just laughed at his statements and didn't think he could seriously win the nomination. Now that he's an actually contender I'm forced to take his comments seriously and his horrible comments have cause my opinion of him to steadily drop more and more.
He's a horrible person. Just terrible. Absolutely disgusting. And he's surrounded by evil, evil people.
Oh wow sorry you got your feelings hurt! Would some ice cream make you feel better?
Would you like some real solutions to make America great again?
swaggydaddyboyz, what a useless statement. Very mature. Oh, wait! Your user name tells us all we need to know about your maturity. Are you 12? Yes, snarky. Did you get your waddle feelings hurt? Make a real contribution to the conversation or shut the h*ll up.
crzychcca or whatever the fuck your name is how butt hurt are you? are you upset you're a fucking whinnying bitch? btw I created this name just so faggots like yourself will have something to come back at me with because without it your whole argument wouldn't even exist
It's called trolling, *sshole, which is exactly what you were doing, so you should be an expert. I am not the least bit upset. I'm enjoying myself, thanks. Why don't you let the adults talk since you obviously can't communicate well enough to be at the big people's table. If you can actually make some comments with some substance it would be great. But if cussing at random strangers makes you feel better about yourself, then enjoy. But don't give if you can't take, dude. Make jerk statements and expect jerk statements in return.
ok dipshit let's see a jerk comment
No change, really.
