Trump holds massive advantages over the rest of the field as the candidate best able to handle the economy, illegal immigration, and ISIS.
Education remains a stark dividing line among Republicans, but since last month Trump gained ground with the party’s college graduates. In the new poll, 27% of GOP voters with degrees back Trump. Among those without degrees, 46% back Trump. Non-college voters could prove to be an Achilles heel for Rubio, who holds just 6% support among that group compared with 19% among those who hold degrees.

Trust me, Hillary Clinton is scared. Smart Democrats are panicking. Leading Democrats keep saying in the media that Donald Trump can’t win the general election.
Really? “Me thinks they doth protest too much.” That may be what they’re saying out loud, but it’s not what they are whispering in private.
I think leading Democrats know exactly what I know. Donald Trump can win New York State. And if he does, Hillary’s goose is cooked. If the GOP wins New York, Democrats have no electoral path to the White House.
Donald Trump is the consummate New Yorker. Donald Trump is New York. Hillary was a carpetbagger from Arkansas. Trump’s name is on almost every corner in Manhattan. He’s spent 69 years being the most famous man in New York.
Try walking down any street in New York and watch the mob scene that develops. Watch the number of working class New Yorkers who tell Trump “I love you.” Watch the number of black and Hispanic New Yorkers who yell “Trump!” and high five the future president. And that’s in Manhattan.
Try the same Trump walk in working class neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island. Trump is a New York hero in those working class boroughs. [Read more…]
This may be the best story Wayne Allyn Root ever told. Certainly, it is the most historic. Root spent the evening before the Las Vegas debate with Donald Trump and his supporters. Root learned who Trump’s supporters really are and why they will change American politics in 2016. – Ed

There were only 2 speakers – Donald Trump and Wayne Allyn Root. I became the opening act for the man I believe is the next President of the United States. It was like opening for Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones. This wasn’t a political rally…it was a rock concert!
That’s why Trump will be the GOP nominee for President. Rubio attracts 200. Trump brings in thousands upon thousands…a sea of humanity. My guesstimate was between 5000 and 7000.
And this story happened in Las Vegas…a town notorious for zero political interest. And that makes sense because my friends all over the country tell me about Trump rallies with 15,000…18,000…20,000…and more.
That’s what Trump brings to the table. No other GOP candidate can match this passion, intensity and love. [Read more…]
According to BuzzFeed’s translation of Putin’s remarks, Putin said of Donald Trump:
“He’s a really brilliant and talented person, without any doubt. It’s not our job to judge his qualities, that’s a job for American voters, but he’s the absolute leader in the presidential race.”
“He says he wants to move on to a new, more substantial relationship, a deeper relationship with Russia, how can we not welcome that? Of course we welcome that.”

What’s not to like about Mr. Trump who wants to Make America Great Again?
His position on US-China Trade is that we need massive reform. Instead of allowing Wall Street insiders who want to move US manufacturing and investment offshore, we need to bring back jobs to America. He says, “We need smart negotiators who will serve the interests of Americans.”
Tax Reform is very much needed. Mr. Trump says too many jobs have been shipped overseas, and too many middle class families can no longer make ends meet. He has a plan and it includes:
- Tax relief for middle class Americans: In order to achieve the American dream, let people keep more money in their pockets and increase after-tax wages.
- Simplify the tax code to reduce the headaches Americans face in preparing their taxes and let everyone keep more of their money.
- Grow the American economy by discouraging corporate inversions, adding a huge number of new jobs, and making America globally competitive again.
- Doesn’t add to our debt and deficit, which are already too large.
Our veterans are very important to Mr. Trump, and the guiding principle of his plan is to ensure our veterans have convenient access to the very best care. I couldn’t agree more.
The Trump Plan Will: [Read more…]
A short, total rebuttal to climate alarmism
Aztec priests told people they must cut out their beating hearts to bring better climate for their crops. The people believed them.
Today’s climate priests tell people they must cut out their CO2 emissions and pay penances to other nations, like China, to save our climate. The people believe them.
It’s time for you to think for yourself.
I will show you physics “secrets” that will change everything you “believe” about climate.
The real climate debate is about the scientific method. This is the critical “philosophy” part of science that most people and many scientists do not understand.
To help us understand the scientific method, let’s drop in on a fictitious federal murder trial in San Francisco. [Read more…]
Luntz doesn’t like Donald Trump. Luntz thinks Trump says stupid things. Luntz is wrong about Trump. However, Luntz’s focus group tells another story. The focus group loves Donald Trump.
Watch this 10-minute video to see how middle America really feels about this election. Even if Trump were to go third party, which he won’t, his followers would vote for him.
Trump isn’t just another candidate who the establishment hates. Trump now controls the Republican Party. Trump has awakened the great middle class that the establishment Republican leaders have not just forgotten but screwed.
Luntz says he has never seen a phenomenon like this in American politics. Luntz’s focus group shows why Trump is winning. They reveal how most conservative voters feel and provide insight into America today.
Please see my new post of April 5, 2016, “Why Ted Cruz is not Eligible to be President.” It shows a new legal argument that I believe will prevail.
by Dr. Ed Berry, also NewsWithViews
The question of whether Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are eligible to be president of the United States has been reviewed by several authors. The question comes down to the definition of a natural born citizen.
Cruz was born in Canada while his mother was a U.S. citizen and his father had been a resident of the United States. Rubio and Jindal were both born in the United States to parents who were not U.S. citizens.
As a physicist, I leave lawyering to the lawyers. I stick to reading and qualifying legal opinions. The logic of physics is very similar to the logic of law.
Below are my summaries of the three key legal opinions on this subject. Apuzzo argues for ineligible. Katyal, Clement, and Maskell rebut Apuzzo’s opinion and argue for eligible.
Unfortunately, America’s political process considers anyone who throws his hat in the ring to be eligible until someone proves otherwise. Therefore, the only way to find Cruz or Rubio ineligible is for someone to prevail in a US court to prove they are ineligible.
My reading of Apuzzo’s legal argument is that it is lacking in substance necessary to prevail. Therefore, I conclude Katyal, Clement, and Maskell easily win the debate, meaning both Cruz and Rubio will be considered “eligible” to be president.
