There is no substance to what you are saying here. At least with John F, I get real substance. In other words, he actually adds something to the discussion.

Latest Reuters 5 day rolling average still has Trump way ahead at 38%. Carson is clearly fading now, and it looks like most of his defectors are going to Cruz and not Rubio. Some to Trump too.

The GOP establishment is now in full blown panic mode. Many of them are now realizing that time is running out and it's looking more and more like Trump has a real shot at the nomination:

I really don't know what's going to happen, but these latest attempts to take him out reek of desperation to me. I suspect they do to many others as well, and in the end the establishment's whole effort may even backfire on them. It seems his polling numbers have now come back down to where they were before the Paris attacks, but he's still way ahead with Carson fading and Rubio gaining no ground.

BTW, I listened to the interview with Stephanopoulos and Trump never said he wants to shut down mosques -- only that he thinks certainly ones should be watched as they had been in years past. So again, more deliberate lies about things he's saying and positions he's taken.

Latest 5 day rolling average still has Trump way ahead of everyone at 36%:

Shockingly Bush has climbed into 3rd place in this poll with over 10%. It will be interesting to see if that lasts or is just essentially a one time polling fluke.
