It also looks like Trump’s polling numbers for the Republican primary have collapsed in the wake of Obama’s long form birth certificate release. From the Huff Post:
Donald Trump’s brief flirtation with the lead in Republican primary polls may be over, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
The survey, conducted by the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, found Trump garnering only 8 percent of potential Republican primary voters, down from 26 percent who said they would support him if he ran in PPP’s previous survey. That plunge in support was enough to drop him from a solid first place to a tie for fifth place.
Donald Trump has made and lost billions of dollars in an economic system that is driven by the principle of short term profit. Unfortunately, the near sighted greed that is needed to become rich in America doesn’t necessarily translate into a successful political tactic, as Trump is now learning. Despite the insanity of the US political system, Americans are wary of fads and gimmicks when it comes to their politicians. Donald Trump, it turns out, is all of the above, and America has just fired him.
