While I am sure a lot of the Democrats and liberals will loudly and vigorously condemn Trump for not voting in the primaries, however I am willing to bet that most of those same Democrats and liberals themselves vote only very erratically at most in primaries, and that fuirthermore the majority of Democrats and liberals have very spotty records at best as far as voting even in general elections.

And being realistic, while general elections are often competitive, although not always, however in many districts the primaries are always or almost always not even slightly competitive and the result is obvious long before they even have the primary election.

Trump votes or doesn't vote isn't an issue with this Democrat and liberal. Fact is, every "not vote" by trump is a "not vote" for his half-baked political ideas. What galls me about that wig-cropped potato is that he lies, makes bold pronouncements, and when proven to be a bald-faced liar, he tries to change the subject...

...and through his lawyer no less.

Like I said before, I wouldn't vote for him to run the church bingo. And like I said before, the only difference between the dinosaurs T.Rex and T.Rump is that one is gonna still stink when he's dug up in 50,000 years.

Donald Trump is a progressive plant sent by DNC to disrupt the GOP primaries. He will not go away because he is well funded and is sucking all the air out of the room. Fortunately, Michelle Malkin is onto him. There will soon be recordings released which are very damaging to Trump, the DNC, and David Axelrod.

You have no basis of fact to support your "bet" that Democrats and "liberals" have very spotty records for voting. It is an unsupported claim you make as a reflection of your personal bias.

While there are many people who never vote, I would postulate that the vast majority hold no political philosophy at all, much less belonging to a political party. How many crips, bloods, and MS13 gang bangers vote? Do you think they are anything at all, with respect to a voting idology?

As an anecdote, I am a self described liberal and vote mostly for democrats, with an occasional Republican or Independent candidate checked on my ballot. I have never missed a primary or general election in my life, except when I was very young and serving as an active duty Marine during the Vietnam conflict.

I have two brothers who are very conservative by persuasion, and they also have never missed voting in either primaries or general elections.

Donald Trump, is a blowhard and a fraud. I fully believe the reports of his spotty voting records.

Repeated studies and surveys have consistently found that Republicans vote in considerably higher percentages than Democrats. And if you don't believe those studies and surveys, you can also refer to the fact that in recent decades the Republican Party has often won preidential elections and often held the majority of the governorships, and even though for many decades a lot more people have identified themselves as Democrats than as Republicans.

The majority of Republicans are at least a bit committed to a somewhat consistent philosophy, and which they therefore back by going to the polls and voting. The majority of Democrats and "liberals" do not really have an even slightly consistent philosophy but instead are "firmly committed" only to backing whatever is politically correct and fashionable and/or the latest hot flavor of the week.

Go for it. Vote for Trump. Insure a second term for Barrack Obama. That's exactly what will happen if "The Donald" were the GOP nominee. Since you're sold on not having a "politician" in the White House, why not have Whoopi Goldberg or Charlie Sheen as your choice? Be careful what you wish for. You may not like the consequences if your wish comes true.
