I’ve made a lot of arguments about Donald Trump. Some of them apply to other candidates. Others are unique to him. I also find aspects of his campaign statistically difficult for a win in November. To be fair, I would like to reveal my fundamental issue with Donald Trump. I think he’s a douchebag.
That term is somewhat vulgar and is another one of those insults involving the female gender. However, it’s colloquial meaning is pretty widely accepted. Trump’s arrogance, self promotion and exaggeration of everything makes me cringe at the sound of his voice.
Ultimately, my fundamental issue with him is personal. The other things I don’t like about him and his campaign only reinforce my fundamental issue with him. What that means, however, is that I really don’t think the average Trump supporter is dumb. I do find some Trump supporters inordinately taken with him, but that happens a lot with political candidates.
We’re in the home stretch now. On the plus side, my vote in New York will mean something, even if it won’t mean anything by voting for Cruz. There’s no way this nomination is decided before May.
