    Isn't the "Trump Campaign" a good indicator of how a "Trump Presidency" would be?

    1. Almost broke....electorally speaking. Trump has about $1.25 M on hand...that's the amount a back-bench House Representative would need to win a district in Podunk, Arkansas.

    2. Chaotic....Campaign managers fighting, until one is pushed out (Manafort/Lewandowski).

    3. Woefully under-staffed, ill-prepared, little organization.

    4. A Leader who is uncontrollable, uninformed, and goes "off-script" and says things that ruin his polling.

    5. No unified support from his Own Party......1000 GOP delegates held a meeting about ousting Trump at the Convention next month.


    Why would his "Presidency" be any different???


    (BTW, Trumpsters...here's where you DESPERATELY try to change the subject. )

    Gordon, the pitiful and surprising thing about Trump's getting this far is the fact that he got so many votes from people who couldn't be thinking and evaluating what he says. They seem to take his words for the truth and think that if he promises a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage that if he's elected they will be able to eat chicken and drive to the liquor store.

    Yes, absolutely.

    The manner in which a presidential candidate manages their campaign is our best indicator of how well the candidate will manage the office of the presidency, should they be elected.

    Do not forget the $2 billion free publicity the Media gave him.

    Ha! I always thought Podunk was in IOWA!! Turns out, there are Podunks in New England, New York, Michigan, and Wisconsin, and two GHOST towns named Podunk in Oklahoma and Nevada. But nuthin' in Arkansas, sorry!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podunk

    The United States Board on Geographic Names lists places named "Podunk":

    Podunk, Connecticut, an area of the town of Guilford in New Haven County
    Podunk, New York, a hamlet in the town of Ulysses in Tompkins County
    Podunk, Vermont, an area of the town of Wardsboro in Windham County
    Three places, over 100 miles (160 km) apart, in Michigan:
    Podunk, Michigan, a community on Podunk Lake in Barry County
    Podunk, Michigan, a crossroads in Gladwin County
    Podunk, Michigan, an alternative name for Rogers City, MI in Presque Isle County, Michigan
    Podunk, Michigan, the south eastern portion of the Village of Manchester, Michigan centered on the current village offices, formal before consolidation with the western portion "Manchester" changed in attempts to improve community image, the concurrent USPS designation of the Village of Manchester, Michigan zip code 48158. Washtenaw County, Michigan
    Other areas known as Podunk include:

    An area of East Hartford, Connecticut in the Podunk River basin including Vinton's Pond[8]
    An area nine miles (14 km) south of Shattuck, Oklahoma (now a ghost town) in Ellis County
    An area in Dixie National Forest containing a guard station known as the Podunk Guard Station[9]
    Within Worcester County, Massachusetts (and involving three New England towns, each adjacent to at least one of the other two):
    Podunk, an unincorporated area in East Brookfield, according to The Straight Dope
    The Podunk Pike, which runs from Sturbridge, north through East Brookfield, and into Spencer
    An area of northwestern Rhode Island 3 miles (4.8 km) WNW of Pascoag

    A sign in Holley NY
    An alternative spelling; "Podonque" is found as the name of a road leading into a settlement area (intersection of County roads 23 and 243) which is still sparsely populated, believed to having been established in the 1800s as: Podonque, Town of Rushford, New York, Allegany County, NY[10]
    Podunk cemetery in Vermont on a private farm of the Newton family
    Poeville, Nevada a ghost town nicknamed Poedunk after John Poe founder of the mining camp[11]
    An area near the Erie Canal lift bridge in Holley, New York
    Podunk, Wisconsin, a now defunct town containing a sizable Bradner, Charnley & Co. logging camp, in Door County, Wisconsin[12]

    It was not his fault, the media gave him the means and now between the free media and money for the second face of his election will bring him victory. Hillary will be disqualified to be president. Biden will take her place.

    The very reason he is broke now.

    BTW, the Fund raiser on Due Repect reminded them, they gave him the free publicity.

    Like that little green haired dummy, that went Whish right over the heads of the Hosts on Due Respect!
