Elections 101: To get nominated as the GOP candidate for president, you are required to actually win delegates to support you at the convention. And his total so far is . . . ?

I'm familiar with his tax plan and like it.  I am completely opposed to any consumption taxes or VAT's.  Would prefer a flat tax, but Trump's plan is decent.  Like his stance on immigration for the most part.  The hardest part to get past is his view of eminent domain.  But I would hold my nose on that because of the rest he brings to the table.  Currently, I see no one else on the horizon who can actually challenge the corruption.  No one owns Trump.  He will not be co-opted or bought and paid for by some one else before he gets to the WH.  That to me is the biggest deal of all.  

I have listened to him at length including many complete stump speeches, not sound bytes doled out to suit those serving up out of context quips.  I have thought he was a serious candidate as soon as he announced while most still think he's just fooling everybody trying to get more famous.

To those who think he is unqualified ...  Because he is a businessman ?   Only a politician is qualified to be POTUS ?  If that is your reasoning, I would offer that is 19th Century thinking.  Just the same as those who think term limits in Congress are bad because a good one will be forced to move on.  Turnover is needed to unseat the embedded corruption in Congress.  

To me, this election is just as much as killing corruption as much as all the other issues.  Trump is government corruption's biggest enemy because they cannot buy him out.

It's interesting, yes. Adams is actually predicting a Trump landslide in the general. But that's not an endorsement, and you seem to be confusing "leading in the polls" with "is a good choice to be president." As a country, we have to stop using "who we think is the likely winner" as the main criterion for our vote. There's no shame in voting for someone who ends up losing—it's not that kind of contest. Anyhoo, Adams is not talking about Trump's suitability as President, he's only talking about how Trump manipulates the process.

Terrifying events are happening in Europe that the media are not willingly reporting on. Watch this: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/11/11/watch-anti-migrant-video-going-viral-across-europe/

This is America's future if you don't learn from Europe's mistakes. Trump recognizes what is happening and is trying to save you. No one else will.

Couldn't be the electorate could it? People still have the power. If we could only move past the grievance; past the soothe me now with gratification cult of personality and entertainment ...Otherwise and so fourth...

Important thing is...Trump is very intelligent.  That's what makes him dangerous.  He can lose the election, or not even be his party's nominee, and still rain on this year's election.  Ignore him at your peril, imo.

Silently protesting Muslim woman ejected from Trump rally

Despite her silence, Trump supporters around her began chanting Trump's name — as instructed by Trump campaign staff before the event in case of protests — and pointed at Hamid and Marty Rosenbluth, the man alongside her who stood up as well.

As they were escorted out, Trump supporters roared — booing the pair and shouting at them to "get out." One person shouted, "You have a bomb, you have a bomb," according to Hamid.
