I used to admire him and call him, "the maestro". Now I hate him, and the possibility that he will be the next US president is certainly not something I am glad about. But I have to tell you that there is a good chance that Donald Trump will win this elections, and here is why: If you followed political campaign poles in the last decade or so, in the US and in other democratic countries, you must have noticed the high percentage that the mystery candidate, "none of the above" was getting. Well here's the thing about Donald Trump - By cleverly utilizing his merchant skills, he was able to personify himself as mister none of the above. Trump is a very cunning strategist and I am sure that when he decided to run for presidency he deliberately chose a strategy, based on pointing out how much he is not like the other candidates. His rudeness, his shameless attacks on just about anyone, his absence from some of the debates - these are all steps in a carefully thought out plan. Trump is trying to win by not playing the game, and there is a good chance that he will succeed. Now I'm sure you are asking yourself, which Afro-American, which Hispanic, which woman, which anyone, would vote for Trump? but the pols and the results of the primary elections that we have already show that many people do want to see Mr. Trump in the white house. Why? well maybe because they think for themselves that at least he is openly saying what others think but political correctness prevent them form saying. For many, talking style and manners are not important anymore. They want actions. They want things to be done, to fix the plummeting economy, to deal with terror threats and so on. Donald Trump is telling them, "I am not like the rest of those nice talking bozos. I will get the work done!". The truth is that he talk more then anyone else, but being the genius marketer that he is, the message he wants to pass is what people hear. Will Trump be a good president? Hell no, he won't. He will be a terrible president. He will be worse than the two Bushes, Reagan and Nixon put together. But I don't think fearing that by itself is going to prevent him from winning. Maybe this is a good time for liberals in the US to do some soul searching and ask themselves if they were not too busy feeling so righteous, because maybe radicalism has just sneaked in on them in a new form.

@straightshooter Putin is a dictator. Let's not start comparing the American presidency to a dictatorship. I fully do not believe that Trump would be a good president, people are starting to forget he's just a reality tv star with a big mouth. But to say he'll gets stuff done like Putin is ridiculous. We live in a democracy so the people rule the land, not a dictatorship where the people have no control.
@cullenquigley your right. What I should have said is that he is a lotnlike him in attitude on getting shit done. Your right that putin is a dictator but I like how he's handling the middle east crisis and terrorists in his country. America isnt quite a dictatorship yet but if we keep applying more and more socialist principles that give the government even more power then we'll be well on our way to one
Plus he is a VERY successful business man who will build our economy back up. People wanna say "oh well he filed for bankruptcy 5 times" but he didnt. He only filed once and that was after his first marriage to keep his wife from taking everything. A lot of people do that even now. The other 4 times was not him but the companies he invested in AND THEY made piss poor decisions that led to their bankruptcy.
@Straightshooter , I don't mean to disrespect you but it is exactly the attitude you show here that shows how big is the gap between reality and the way so many people in democratic countries perceive it. Putin did not get anything done but to get Russia entangled in wars and bring the Russian economy on its knees. Yet people in democracies ask why their leaders can't be like Putin. It only goes to show that there is something very broken with our democracy.
yeaaaah I'm getting my passport together and moving to these four places, either Canada , England, Scotland , or Japan (or south Korea)
