Donald Trump has had one of the quickest rises and falls in the history of Presidential politics. Last month we found him leading the Republican field with 26%. In the space of just four weeks he's dropped all the way down to 8%, putting him in a tie for fifth place with Ron Paul.

Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney are at the top of the GOP race with 19% and 18% respectively. Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin are further back at 13% and 12%, followed by Trump and Paul at 8%, Michele Bachmann at 7%, and Tim Pawlenty at 5%.

I wonder if it was his profane speech or his handling of the birther issue or both that did him in.

Something in my gut tells me Trump caused his collapse on purpose because his intentions are not to win the nomination but instead prevent Romney from doing so.

EDIT - Wow...have I really crossed over the 3,000 post mark here. It caught me off-guard. I wanted to cross it with fanfare. Oh well. Yay 3,000 posts!

But Craig, haven't you loaded up on too many "economic conservatives?" Too bad.... :wink:

Love the token Libertarians you threw in. :like

Jack has me beat by a couple of weeks, but this is what I said on April 29 on this thread viewtopic.php?f=180&t=25124&p=209392#p209392

Don't even worry about Trump. He tied his political future too closely to the birther issue, and now that the birth certificate has been released you are going to see a decline in numbers. His dropping the F word a few times in Vegas is just going to make that decline happen even faster.

I really do wish he would run though because I believe he would hurt Romney and help Huckabee for what little bit of time he would be in the race. My guess is Trump would go all in for New Hampshire and then have to drop out once he finished 3rd or 4th.

OK...I'll play.

Here's my "trump" card from

April 6:

Quote:
Trump is ALL name ID and bluster. He may end up in the position of Guilliani in 2007 as the candidate best recognized and least known by GOP voters. Once folks knew the whole package that was Rudy, his support fell dramatically.

Seriously, we have way better political analysts on Huck's Army than anywhere else in the media.

There's still the possibility of being "Nadered" in the general if he decides to run independent.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say we haven't seen the last scene of this movie quite yet.

That is what I have thought has been possible since the "F Bomb" episode. Presidential candidates don't do that sort of thing on purpose.

I've read he won't even be allowed to do that, and it never was even a possibility:

Quote:
Not exactly, according to the show’s publicist. “There will be no announcement,” Pannozzo said. “It’s just misinformation on his part.” Pannozzo insists there will be no live segments of the show. Asked about Pannozzo’s comments, Trump spokesman Michael Cohen confirmed to National Journal: “Mr. Trump will not be making any announcement during the finale of The Apprentice.”


Apparently the show was taped back in November. Go figure. :roll:

Well I guess it is all just a ratings stunt then. Shame on us for falling for it.

This is weird. I'd wanted to believe we could finally put the "Trump might actually run this time" theory to rest after it came out that his final Apprentice shows were taped back in November, preventing some kind of live announcement, but then this came out today:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articl ... 09836.html

Quote:
Reality TV star and real estate mogul Donald Trump is working on a policy book, which Regnery Publishing will release in conjunction with his potential presidential campaign, RCP has learned.

Regnery intends to place the book on a crash schedule, and it is tentatively set for a late-summer release date.

The book does not yet have a working title.

Designed to add some intellectual heft to Trump's light political resume, the book will lay out the New York City businessman's policy prescriptions for the country.


Weird, weird, weird. I assume they'll have to print a family-friendly version for voters in Iowa (New Hampshire voters get the unedited version). I'm guessing the family-friendly version will be available in leaflet form, considering how short it'll be once they take out all of the profanity.

Rumors swirling in Iowa is that he is running and going for the win in the caucuses.
