Donald Trump has risen to the top of the Republican primaries by speaking candidly about his prejudices against immigrants and others. Now the Republican Party has him using code, like resurrecting Richard Nixon’s old “silent majority.”

Trump Supporters Think Obama is A Muslim Born in Another Country
PPP's newest national poll finds Donald Trump just continuing to grow his lead over the GOP field. He is at 29% to 15% for Ben Carson, 9% for Jeb Bush, 8% for Carly Fiorina, 7% for Marco Rubio, 6% each for Ted Cruz and John Kasich, and 5% each for Mike Huckabee and Scott Walker. That group makes a pretty clear top 9. Rounding out the field are Chris Christie and Rick Santorum at 2%, Jim Gilmore, Rand Paul, and Rick Perry at 1%, and Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, and George Pataki at less than 1%.

Our new poll finds that Trump is benefiting from a GOP electorate that thinks Barack Obama is a Muslim and was born in another country, and that immigrant children should be deported. 66% of Trump's supporters believe that Obama is a Muslim to just 12% that grant he's a Christian. 61% think Obama was not born in the United States to only 21% who accept that he was. And 63% want to amend the Constitution to eliminate birthright citizenship, to only 20% who want to keep things the way they are.

Trump's beliefs represent the consensus among the GOP electorate. 51% overall want to eliminate birthright citizenship. 54% think President Obama is a Muslim. And only 29% grant that President Obama was born in the United States. That's less than the 40% who think Canadian born Ted Cruz was born in the United States.

Trump's supporters aren't alone in those attitudes though. Only among supporters of John Kasich (58/13), Jeb Bush (56/18), Chris Christie (59/33), and Marco Rubio (42/30) are there more people who think President Obama was born in the United States than that he wasn't. And when you look at whose supporters are more inclined to think that the President is a Christian than a Muslim the list shrinks to just Christie (55/29), Kasich (41/22), and Bush (29/22). Bush's inability to appeal to the kind of people who hold these beliefs is what's keeping him from succeeding in the race- his overall favorability is 39/42, and with voters identifying themselves as 'very conservative' it's all the way down at 33/48.

Trump is winning his fight with Megyn Kelly. When we last polled her in December of 2013 her favorability with Republicans nationally was 44/9. Her favorability is in a similar place now at 42% but her negatives have shot up to 20%, largely because she's at 20/43 with Trump's supporters. Meanwhile Trump's popularity with GOP voters has just continued to grow. Last month before the debate his favorability with them was 48/39, now it's improved to 56/30. Fox News as a whole isn't suffering for the feud though- in February we found 66% of Republicans said they trusted the network, and now we find 66% say they have a favorable opinion of it.  (...)
He's got the Tea-Billy libertarians/GOPers onboard...

FFS, they already have that awful Jack Skellington thing - a transparent creation to smear the Halloween -> Christmas period into a single "holiday." 
Why? So they can decorate for it at Disneyland and leave it up for an extended period. Otherwise it's put up Halloween, take down, put up T-Giving, take down, put up Christmas, take down.
This way - one long continuous no-brainer "holiday."

Well I had to walk 10 miles to school in the snow and it was uphill both ways ...

We had no cassette recorders, cam corders, innernet, gopro, wikipedia, drones and cell phone cameras back then to document the minutiae of the times, so you'll just have to take my word for it.  {#Snooty}

I could tell a 1st hand story of my experience with something and then contend that it should be policy. In fact, I think many people do.
But that's not how any of us would want things decided.

There's no harm in wanting facts about things that are measurable.
