Donald Trump—ever vigilant—has stepped into the breach and taken decisive action in the wake of last night’s disaster.

Dear Donald: Are your hotels like troll lairs? We’ve never been. We much prefer this idea:

RT if you think Donald Trump was protected from the elements by his fortress of money.

Kathleen Edwards: Empty Threat

(from Voyageur)

This one is for The Donald. We’ve been digging the new Kathleen Edwards album of late (Justin Vernon should sing backing vocals on every song she writes), and the title of this song seems to echo Donald Trump’s recent wolf-crying. "I’m moving to America, Moving to America, Moving to America, It’s an empty threat."  This line right here? Imagine her singing, instead, this: "I’m running for president, running for president, running for president, It’s an empty threat." It’ll make you feel better.

Lol.
The emailed reaction of Tim Miller, a spokesman for Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaign, upon being asked if Huntsman would participate in next month’s GOP debate moderated by Donald Trump and sponsored by conservative website Newsmax. “We look forward to watching Mitt and Newt suck-up to The Donald with a big bowl of popcorn,” Miller told Business Insider. (via officialssay)

Ahahahahahahaha.

This year, GOP voters’ hunger for radicalism is so great that it can be filled by essentially anybody. Kill off Trump’s candidacy and the demand will remain, leaving an opening for yet another demagogic charlatan to take his place.

Trump’s polling paints a muddy picture

  • yeah… In the latest WSJ/NBC poll, The Donald trumped his opponents, vaulting ahead of Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich and tying Mike Huckabee for second place. He also came in second in a New Hampshire poll, losing out to Willard “Mitt” Romney.
  • but In last week’s PPP poll, Trump scored an approval rating of just 28% (with net approval at -18), and lost a hypothetical match-up to President Obama by 11 points. He also came in a dismal fifth amongst primary voters in a recent CNN pollsource

» What to make of this: By and large, the takeaway here is that the Republican field is very weak, and there’s no clear favorite (Huckabee and Romney could perhaps be considered “co-favorites”). Trump has done well in a few polls, but this is more likely due to a) boredom on the part of primary voters, and b) Trump’s recent media blitz. It’s difficult to imagine a candidate with such toxic approval ratings winning a national election; he’d have to win over an additional 18% of voters just to break even. That being said, 26% of voters in the PPP poll haven’t yet made up their mind about Trump, giving him lots of room to grow. Still, we agree with Christian Heinz over at The Hill, who noted that Trump’s numbers illustrate “the tremendous thirst for a new, charismatic candidate” in the GOP primary. Charismatic? You betcha. Electable? We’re not so sure.
