When Trump first started running..

I admit I couldn't get enough of his ranting and insulting....but those days are over. He was fun (compared to Jeb, Santorum, Walker, etc.)

I love having the news on all day, always have, that I can remember, but I've reached my fill of Donald. Sanity returns.

I hope the rest of the country wakes up and realizes that, like he said, no one can tell him what to do....the other side of the coin says no one can stop him either. That means that wealth can't stop him, but everyday folks like me can stop him just by ignoring him. That day will soon be here.

I reached it about a day after the debate (if you want to call it that)
But then again, it would be true of any Republican.

He' thinks that 30% of the Republican party - mostly Tea Party Purists - are a good cross section of the American people. He isn't even close. They're not even the majority of Republicans, but a mere fraction of them. I don't think he's even risen in the polls since the debates. But you have to give him credit for not noticing his followers have peaked.

I've always suspected he's been running just to win a bet with one of his buddies. He probably bet that he could get the nomination without spending very much money, just by riding free off what the press says.
