Trump Meltdown   2 comments

Wow! I saw it coming, but for all those folks who liked Trump – wow.

I will say this again — all the polls in the world mean nothing. Elections are what count. Trump’s “popularity” may well have had to do with how the pollsters were wording the survey questions … or name recognition … or entertainment value.

People get into the polling booth, however, and they take it more seriously than they did answering the question on the phone while dinner was getting cold. Trump doesn’t meet the serious candidate standard.

This also speaks to a larger issue. There is a move among some to make voting something you can do from the comfort of your home. How many people would have opted for Trump after their after-dinner cocktail? I’m just suggesting that we might want to realize that people make sloppy decisions when they’re allowed to be sloppy in what they’re doing. They say “yes” to Trump to the pollster on the phone, but “maybe” to Cruz and Rubio when they get to the polling booth. Something as important as voting should not be turned into a casual behavior.
