Racist Chickens Come Home To Roost As Donald Trump Leads The GOP In New Poll


Republicans are panicking and trying to stop Donald Trump as new YouGov/The Economist Poll shows Trump leading the Republican field.

The YouGov/The Economist poll found that Trump has ridden racism to the very top as he now leads Jeb Bush 15%-12%. Rand Paul is third at 11%, and Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee and Marco Rubio are in a four-way tie for fourth at 9%. The next tier of Republican candidates is led by Ben Carson (7%), Chris Christie (6%), Ted Cruz (4%), Carly Fiorina (3%), and Rick Perry (3%).

Before this poll was released, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus called Trump to try to get him to tone it down. The Washington Post noted that the call reflected the level of alarm within the Republican Party about Trump, “The call from Chairman Reince Priebus, described by donors and consultants briefed on the conversation and confirmed by the RNC, underscores the extent to which Trump has gone from an embarrassment to a cause for serious alarm among top Republicans in Washington and nationwide.”

Priebus said that the call lasted for an hour. Trump claimed that the call lasted for 10-15 minutes, and the point was to congratulate him on his presidential campaign. Trump’s alternate reality version of the call was a not so subtle message to the Republican Party.

Donald Trump is giving Republican voters what they want. He is a politically uneducated, fire breathing, racist and bigot. In other words, he is the perfect candidate for a large swath of those who will pick the party’s nominee.

Republicans have trafficked in racism and catered to right-wing extremists for years. They created the environment that has allowed Donald Trump to flourish as a candidate, and now they are trying to put the genie back in the bottle.

Donald Trump doesn’t have to listen to the Republican Party. Because Republicans frontloaded their primary process, they created a process that will allow Trump to stay in the race for a long time.

Republicans are freaking out because they realize that one of the consequences of selling their party to the conservative billionaires is that they have no ability to control Donald Trump.

If something doesn’t change soon, Trump’s magic formula of racism + media attention = rising poll numbers could make a long-term presence in the Republican field.

  1. He is saying what the R party base wants to hear. You have to say one thing about Donald he doesn’t beat around the bush and I think that is what voters what. Tell it like it is!

    Remember Bush Sr., “read my lips no new taxes” and what did he do raise taxes.

  2. A note to sTRUMPet- if you’re gonna use ‘tan in a bottle’ be sure to apply it to all of your exposed skin.

    A mistake that Mittens made.

    They say Liberal like it’s a bad thing- I’ll proclaim it out loudly and joyfully.

    But what Conservatives are really about, they feel the need to shush the one who talks out loud about it.

    Why is that?

  3. They’ve sown the wind, and will reap the whirlwind.
    Karma is a bitch.
    Never let up. These racists and bigots deserve no quarter. They would be lynchers, slaveholders, and Nazis if allowed.
    They are enemies of civilization, and they are Republicans.

  4. It’s not going to last. It don’t mean nothing. So what if he is in “first” place. We’ve seen that play before. Next month, maybe Santorum will jump ahead. Then the next time it will be whoever decides to say something outrageous. The Republicans love that. The world and the country watches. We know where they comin’ from: Not a good place.

  5. This would be hilarious if it weren’t so friggen scary. They keep putting crazier and crazier people up to have their finger on the button. Trump/Palin ’16

  6. When the SCOTUS decided that corporations are people
    who can buy their own public officials, The Donaldator
    was unleashed. And when the merchants of war hear of
    his “bomb the Hell out of ISIS” solution to the ME enigma
    followed by putting Exxon in charge of Iraq’s oil, he’ll go
    up in the polls even more.

  7. Agreed ! Today’s Republicans are total bat-sh*t crazy lunatics. A hodge-podge of Joe McCarthy drunkard opportunists, Goldwater true-believers, and Nixon paranoids. Along with Father Coughlin religious nuts and Strom Thurmond Dixiecans.

    It’s like some mad scientist took the worst of the worst among the entire pathetic loser history of America, combined all the ingredients, shook it up, and out fell the current Republicans !

  8. I love the new Republican party makeover after the DEEP DEEP soul searching from the bitter loss of 2012…

    let’s see…

    continue to vote to repeal and not replace ‘ObamaCare’ aka the ACA…

    continue to insult the l’il ladies who really don’t know how to take care of their own bodies and health by passing stricter laws against abortion and restricting birth control access…

    continue outreach to the minority communities by make racist comments and defending the Confederate battle flag and ignoring immigration…

    make plans to privatize Federal lands because ‘you’ve seen on redwood you’ve seen them all’ god Ronnie…

    defend welfare queens like Clivin Bundy as rugged individualists even as they steal from the public…

    cut assistance to families and not care if they starve… especially after we make them have babies… and then denigrate them for not taking care of family…

    ‘stop being the stupid party’

    its working well

  9. The GOP have been Rabble-Roused into a FRENZY OF HATED by FOX & RightWing Hate Radio.

    Mark Twain said it beautifully:

    “Anger/Hatred do more harm to the vessel in which it’s stored…
    Than to anything on which it’s poured”

    Look at all the HATRED they have poured on our President and Dems.
    All that Citizens United Money Brainwashing the Low-Info Conservatives.

    The Brainwashing of My Dad:

  10. The Donald Trump political tire fire still burns. Reince Preibus is afraid it will ignite nearby toxic pools of Republican sludge.

  11. The GOP presidential race poll means absolutely nothing. It’s like a fad. Whoever gets the most publicity (good or bad) comes out the leader. It used to be the GOP could rely on lies by keeping people stupid, people are now seeing and hearing how worthless they are from the things coming out of their mouths. They are about to reap what they have been sowing for so long. Thank God!

  12. Why is anyone surprised that Trump leads in a Republican poll? Trump is the poster boy for the hateful, elitist, callous, misogynistic unspoken and unwritten agenda of the Republican Party. The others WANT to say the same things Trump is saying, they are just too politically conniving, hypocritical and dishonest to speak their real views.

  13. As much as wish Trump will be the R’s nominee, I’m afraid we’ll have to face the much stronger Jeb Bush. I think Hillary can beat him but it will be a close, hard fought contest.

  14. @Kranky, awesome post!! you nailed the GOP to a tee, when I say this, it’s in complete sincerity, this hands down is the best political site I’ve even taken part of, keep up the good work people and I’ll try not to stroke out posting my turbo charged captain caveman opinions.

  15. Ahhh, I am humbled, knight4444…. truly appreciate your thoughts.

    I am a national editorial cartoonist, and have some influence around the world. Have been stifled by the conservative milieu against expertise, but I plod on.

    STAY energized ! Don’t lose your passion !
    Many will try to dissuade you, say that you are TOO strident .
    BS ! They NEVER say that about right wing nutjobs !
    Get involved ! WE make people think, and ACT !
    People are stupid. Yes, they are. But there are intelligent people that can direct the dolts in the ‘good’ path that is best for them and all of us.
    I’ve learned from others: Avoid the ‘takers’, embrace the ‘Givers’ .
    You will know them when you see them.
    Smile often. Even laugh out loud. The haters will clear your way. The REAL human beings will be your friends.

    Live life as a gift. That’s all it is !

  16. I was born in a time where racist, especially racist from the south let you know exactly where they stood. I’ll be totally honest, I’d rather someone be REAL and let me know how they feel! But once again, ALL that TODAYS republicans are good for is hypocrisy and or blatant lies! see republicans want to both ways, they want to say racist things but they won’t accept the public push back! republicans are typically cowardly little JERK OFFS! they wanna hoot and holler about how christian they are all while disrespecting every verse of the bible! republicans are typically severely mentally ill people! YEAH YEAH I know, many LIBERALS here will have a nervous breakdown because I called republicans MENTALLY ILL! because YOU have some family members who are republicans, I’m SORRY but the truth is what it is! If you’re going to call yourself “WHATEVER!” then live that life! stand by YOUR convictions! if YOU believe racism is correct! then don’t get UPSET when you’re called A RACIST!

  17. If we remember, Michele Bachman won the Iowa Straw Poll. So an early lead means absolutely nothing. She won a ticket to nowhere.

  18. Lucky that Bernie is saying what we want to hear, independents wants to hear, and even some fed up republicans want to hear.

  19. Trump is the end result of Lee Atwater’s “Southern Strategy” back in the late 60’s and the 70’s. He taught Karl Rove well.

    The funny thing to watch is that the racist dog-whistle chickens are finally coming home to roost, right out the blowhole of Donald Trump.

    All I can do is quote the President by saying to Donald Trump:

    “Please proceed.”
