The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing God Bless America.As I and others have pointed out here previously, Mitt Romney has a STEEP climb to win the 270 electoral votes he needs to become President.
Not only does he have to win FL and OH, he has to win 6 other states that Obama won in 2008. It's a near impossibility.
So it's interesting to see that in the states that Romney desperately needs to win ... Donald Trump is DEEPLY unpopular.
From Public Policy Polling:
During April we've polled Trump in the battleground states of Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, and Nevada and in all four of those states we've found that at least 59% of voters have an unfavorable opinion of him.
In Nevada Trump's favorability is a -27 spread (32/59), in North Carolina it's a -35 spread (27/62), in Iowa it's a -34 spread (27/61), and in New Hampshire it's a -33 spread (27/60).
Trump is completely toxic to independent voters. His favorability with them in Nevada is 35/57, in Iowa it's 29/58, in New Hampshire it's 23/63, and in North Carolina it's 28/61. His recent antics have ingratiated him to a meaningful chunk of the far right Republican base, but he's completely turned off the folks in the center whose votes often determine who comes out on top in Presidential contests.
I'll never understand the Romney calculus that determined that embracing Donald fracking Trump was a smart political move.
Maybe a rightwinger can explain the logic?
No, no, no, God damn America, thats in the Bible for killing innocent people, he said in a 2003 sermon.
God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human.
God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.
Yes. We. Can.
Think for a minute about Obama, running for President, who consistently, willfully, repeatedly and apparently faithfully, exposes his young daughters to this kind of crap week in and week out... and then think that some deem him to be a man of sound mind and good judgment?
Jeremiah Wright vs Donald Trump?
Explain the logic?
