New York Sucks Again | April 19, 2016

It’ll probably be quite late before we find out if Donald Trump lost any of the 95 delegates up for grabs in New York. After months of campaigning and a little over a month before the end of primary season, Donald Trump got more than 50% of the vote in his first state. Woo. Hoo.

  1. Congratulations to the winner. I wonder o any delegates the RNC and Cruz will steal from him this time.

    • The RNC and Cruz will try their best, but so far everyone who has predicted Trump’s demise has been dreadfully wrong. That will not deter them in their quest to keep their narrative alive. I’m rather enjoying the show!

      • German voters enjoyed Hitler’s speeches, too.

    • You can take me seriously or not. How can I take someone seriously about Trump when they are enjoying “the show?”

      • The show I am enjoying is watching ppl come up with reason after reason why he’s never going to make it to the finals. There are a few things about Trump that rub me the wrong way, but of all the contenders on the GOP side, he’s the only one I wouldn’t worry about should he win the presidency.

        I asked you a direct question at TCH that you never answered. It was: “Aside from “He’s not Trump!” can you tell me what it is about Cruz and his campaign platform/ideology that has earned your support and respect? You’re intelligent and articulate but I’ve yet to hear you outline why you support him so strongly. Can you elaborate?”

        To date, you have not answere

      • I didn’t want to answer this in the fairly hostile environment of the Crawdad Hole, but I’ll try to explain. Of all the original candidates, I’m more of a Scott Walker guy. He had strong executive experience at taking down the Democrat machine. He’s fiscally and culturally conservative, which were also pluses.

        Ted Cruz has a history of opposing the Democrats and Republicans. He doesn’t have executive experience, but he is culturally conservative. He’s not my first choice. He’s my second.

        Donald Trump is not my choice. He has no government experience, so you never know what position he will take. He used to be pro-choice. Then he was pro-life. Then he wanted to fine women who had abortions. Now, he wants to make exceptions for rape and incest. I really don’t know where he stands.

        Aside from my personal views, I also think Trump doesn’t have a chance against Hillary Clinton. The media is good at tripping him up, he has terrible numbers against women, and he has gotten over 50% in one state so far, a state where Bernie Sanders got more primary votes.

      • Thanks for the explanation, even if delayed. I was a Walker supporter at first as well, but mostly because of his tangle with the unions, regardless of how it eventually panned out.

        I’m a fiscal conservative, but I abhor the idea that a party or our federal government believes it (they?) has any say whatsoever on social issues. I’m what used to be known as a Blue Dog Dem (before the progressives made them extinct). Very conservative on fiscal policy, and your personal/private business is nobody’s business providing you’re not imposing your views on those who feel differently.

        Obviously, we feel differently about Trump. As a matter of fact, I disagree with your characterization of him more than just a little.

        I started out on the fence, and have become a Trump supporter by default. I have no problem with him, am not going to lapse into some knee-jerk reaction either pro or con. Of all those running at this moment, his is the only name that won’t send me back under the covers or to the nearest tavern should I hear it the day after election day. I also think he would absolutely CREAM Clinton in the GE.

        His poll numbers so far, which outreach everyone else’s, is compiled only among Republican voters. There are more than a handful of disaffected Dems and Independents in my neighborhood (Upper West Side), which is not exactly known for its conservative politics who are now enthusiastically supporting Trump. Big surprise to me. Bottom line is that all of my neighbors are simply fed up with “experienced politicians”. At this juncture, I’d feel confident saying that an experienced politician is exactly what we DON’T need.

    • With a handful of states to go, Donald Trump is finally getting over 50%. To some, this is a victory over people like me who didn’t see Trump doing well for the last 3 months. It may be true that he trounces Hillary Clinton in the general election, but there is no evidence in the polling to indicate that. It is only a matter of faith.

      I’m concerned that Trump has to either flip flop to get back Republicans that he trashed during the primaries, or he’s going to continue to be Trump and he’ll have to make up ground with people in the center. I’m not predicting so much as just seeing things the way they are now.

      • Actually, I don’t consider ‘anyone like you’ when I judge a politician’s success or failure. Don’t take that personally – I learned a long time ago that its about the politician, not their supporters. Don’t hate the players, hate the game.

        Trump knows exactly what he needs to do, and capitulating to TPTB runs completely against his platform. Its clear that the neocons or Bush Republicans are on their way out, so pandering to them has no advantage to him. They’re not going to go quietly into the night, and I’m not surprised that ppl are getting scared, or worse – coming up with far fetched reasons why his wins are actually losses. At some point, people will look at the reasons for their own biases and hopefully accept reality.
