    Right. Trump declares personal wealth is the determining factor on electing a president. Sad

    Americans, if you think a rich man will actually serve the lower class majority, you deserve to be abused! this guy does not care about the United States. He only cares about $$$$$$$$, which makes him a perfect right winger.

    The Republicans are eating their own.

    When is someone going to tell Trump to sit down and shut-up?

    Obama is smiling.

    Okay CNN I'm always looking for the positive so here is my take on the popularity of Trump. You have two articles about him and only one about Palin. If he takes her place on these pages he will at least serve a purpose

    Trump is a delusional lunatic... He is not even a billionaire and is actually inherited from his dad company! There is a clear contrast between Mitt Romney and Donald Trump. Mitt Romney is an Honest and successful businessman while Donald Trump had to file for bankruptcy several times and actually is a dishonest businessman, take the example of his business with Qaddafi... Mitt Romney- Vice President and CEO of Bain and Company, rescue them from failing, Co-Founder of Bain Capital, Rescuer of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, and the 70th Governor of Massachusetts. What about Trump?

  6. He's An Obama plant . . .

    He will destroy all the other candidates, because he has no party loyalty. He will easily win the nomination if he wants it.
    He will capture 42 per cent of the vote; a hand full of southern states, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and maybe Montana. And that's it. Obama gets about 400 electoral votes.

    Go Donald, Go

    Romney will get the nomination for being the only Republican candidate who isn't nuttier than squirrel droppings.

    the Donald I would think should be reporting on what his "troops on the ground" in Hawaii have found about the birth of President Obama over there. Surely they have found something that can be reported on. Or maybe he sent out the same guys OJ Simpson sent out to find the "real killers" we're waiting to hear from them too.

    "the?{ Donald is an opportunist and a joke. He is making a mockery of the entire United States. He is making a joke of America and the American process., He is looking for the ratings and an high dollar contract with Fox. He is using the American people for his own benefit.. He is not a serious candidate in the Presidential race because in the first place he would have to provide his financial statments, he can't do that because it would prove to the world that he is a fraud. Let him make fools out of those who may support him but, it is a shame. Even though I may not personally agree with the Tea Party, I think that this person is making a fool out of those who are looking to him for leadership. I am not for the TP. but this man is making a fool of you for his own benefit.

    Donald Trump is making brilliant moves toward the Republican nomination. An example is his linking George W. Bush and Obama.
    Trump has always done brilliant and daring things: that's why we are talking about him.
    You may not like Trump, but it doesn't matter: he's still Donald Trump. Many who are saying they wouldn't vote for him have lost their houses.

    Whatever your opinion of Trump is, he's struck a nerve with the the American voter. The current level of disatisfaction among voters is at an all time high. There is a reason why Trump is at the top of most polls. Inflation is creeping upwards, gas has hit over four dollars a gallon, unemployment is high. We're involved in three wars. Americans are becoming desperate. They're willing to take a chance on guy like Trump.

    If Mr. Trump is running for president, I have a good advice to Mr. Obama to hire Ms. Rosie O'donnell as a Campagn Manager.
