Trump pulling ahead big in Indiana!

Latest polls.

NBC/WSJ/Marist poll gives Trump a 15-point lead over Cruz, and the Gravis poll gives Trump a 17-point lead.

If it was only one poll, I’d be very suspicious and call it an outlier, but two polls showing Trump with a big widening lead very likely reflects the reality of voters breaking for Trump.

  1. I don’t want us to get ahead of ourselves, but the polls and the people on the ground both say Trump is going to win IN.

    I don’t think Cruz will drop out though because he is insane. Kasich is staying in until the bitter end, so why not Cruz?

    Poll by PPP (democratic pollster) says that Trump is only down 3 to Clinton in Ohio. If Trump gets the nomination and successfully unites the party behind him I don’t see any reason he can’t score clear victories in the purple states considering how toxic Hillary is.

    Still, it would help if the economy would get worse before November, although it doesn’t seem like it’s going to.

    • “Still, it would help if the economy would get worse before November, although it doesn’t seem like it’s going to.”

      The economy is a god awful disaster. The fake, phony, fraud employment numbers put out by the government are just that: lies. What new jobs there are either go to immigrants or are crappy part-time or waiter type jobs (when a Republican is President these are called “McJobs,” under a Democrat they are robust job growth).

      The inflation numbers are also rigged nonsense.

      Working and middle-class white people are hurting like crazy. They are in debt up to their ears. Their incomes are flat. Real life expenses get higher every day (food, rent, health care). As the saying goes, lots of white people are one layoff away from a double-wide. Outsourcing and insourcing continue unabated.

      The media can lie all they want about the economy, but the people who feel the weight of debt every day in their lives know that Trump is the only candidate to vote for.

      • The economy isn’t great, but it isn’t as bad as it needs to be. The economy was about this crappy in 2012 and Obama still crushed Romney. We need a clear recession with job losses and a decline in real wages. Right now we are muddling through and that isn’t going to be enough.

      • I think the stock market is getting ready too on a tear between now and about October. Once it starts to become clear Trump could actually win the election, stocks will crater.

  2. I’m not a fan of previous NBC-WSJ polls. They’ve shown themselves to be both agenda driven and inaccurate.

    But I really think Trump has got Indiana. Insert statement on social proof here.

  3. OT/VP: I expect it will be somebody highly acceptable to the GOPe, maybe Scott Walker. I still really, really hope it will instead be one of the main immigration hawks in Congress: Tancredo, Sessions, Hunter. Someone who would get a big famousness boost by being on the ticket and could then pick up the torch and carry it forward. Duncan Hunter would be nice because he has a younger successor as part of the package: his son, Duncan D. Hunter. Or, if we’re thinking outside the box, one could do a lot worse than Mark Krikorian of CIS. Meanwhile, liberal pundits have advised me that Trump definitely, definitely needs a woman on the ticket to soften his image. Because who wouldn’t love Donald Trump, except soft? But, going with this logic, how about Jessica M. Vaughn, also of CIS? In addition to immigration expertise, she’s a former foreign service officer, meaning that she almost certainly knows more about foreign policy than any of the presidential candidates besides Mrs. Clinton. I mean, anybody who hasn’t been vetted in a presidential campaign already could turn out to be a disaster, and I’m not really a big big fan of Vaughn’s, but she sure ain’t dumb.

    • I want Kasich

      • Kasich is a ZERO. He’s creepy and he’s pro amnesty, pro unnecessary wars and pro bad trade deals.

        Trump needs to stay away from Republican hack dirtbags like Kasich and anybody connected to the Bush family.

    • I still really, really hope it will instead be one of the main immigration hawks in Congress: Tancredo, Sessions, Hunter.

      Tancredo is unlikable and Sessions is too old. I’d prefer Hunter over either of them.

    • Gingrich is the best choice — not even close. Will be excellent in debates, won’t have the recent stink of a loser that Kasich will, and will reassure the GOPe base. A perfect second-fiddle.


      May 2, 2016 at 11:55 pm

    • It’s going to be Scott Brown. Trump likes to have attractive people around.

      Plus, Trump wants Brown to be his voice communicating with Congress. He’s a personable, likeable guy.

  4. Cruz will lose because he has hired a job destroyer to be his VP candidate after just losing badly in five states, while telling the folks that he and she will bring jobs back to them. Showing extreme poor judgment and a lack of resourcefulness in times of desperation is what will do him in. The pact with Kasich was, of course, a bad idea also. The neighboring Governor could have polled better than last place had he campaigned in Indiana, but he appeared to be oblivious to the deceitfulness of the plan until it was too late.

  5. O/t – A guido engineering student (what a shocker) is shot dead at the NJIT frat house. I thought colleges were places of learning, and with a tech/engineering school, vocational endeavors are the utmost importance. What’s up with these frat boys nowadays?

  6. Actually, Trump and Kasich also resemble rats. There is no way of getting away from it. But Trump is a stronger, a more energetic rat and is gonna win this rat race. Boehner is a total rat. Why so many politicians are so ratty?

    • Trump displaying a disgusting lack of white nationalist solidarity. 4.0/10, would not vote for.

  8. Indiana is in the bag. First Trump got Bobby Knight’s endorsement, now he’s got Lou Holtz’. I’m lookin’ for John Cougar Mellencamp to endorse Trump in the morning.


    May 2, 2016 at 11:25 pm

    • Mellencamp is probably a Bernie supporter. It would have been nice if Trump got an endorsement from legendary kickboxer Bill “Superfoot” Wallace, who was born in Portland, Indiana.

  9. Trump’s lead in Cali has exploded to 34%. Voters are consolidating. Cruz is getting stomped like the little cuck he is.

  10. i’d guess most politicians are low t males (high verbal= low t) which narrows their facial development and gives them that weak, rodentesque skull look
