There was a time when Ross Perot ran against the establishment croud & got a lot of enthusiasm. Unfortunately he split the Republican party & Bill Clinton was the result. I think things would be different this time. If the establishment Republicans pull the same trick and eject Donald Trump they will certainly loose. OTOH, maybe Trump can make enough noise that the Republicans begin to follow him. The beet goes on!

true

Also his platform is substantially his ego as expressed by:

"**I** will make this country great !!"

.... and i am not so very sure that the emphasis is mine.

Thing is, after listening to his press conference today, i am not so very sure that i don't believe him. 

I like his non-governmental style of getting things done. 

He wins, and makes the other guy a looser ... I am not so very sure that I like that part.

Of course what i like is kind of immaterial to predicting what is happening.

Question is how long can he tread that water ....

I suspect thou hast exhausted the impact of thinking you can characterize his Ego. 


Well he is characterizing his ego quite articulately on his own ... and so have many others ... there is scant little of my ego involved in that recognition.

My inquiry now is how that ego translates into the American people's ego.  The crowds showing up at his rallies and his ever increasing pool numbers speak to that.
