Trump is #2 in GOP Field - Page 369
Regarding Obama off the cuff speeches, I once commented on his almost complete inability to express his thoughts in a sentence longer than 3 words uninterrupted by "yaa know" and was attacked for it as if I insulted a prophet. Over the last 8 years he has gained some ability to speak without a prompter and not so bad anymore. Yet, during his first run for office he was just terrible in those townhall Q and As.
First off I didn't mean to like your comment
Obama's frequent "uhhhh uhhhhh" and "ya know" were always annoying. His political opponents frequently mischaracterized his preference for a teleprompter as proof that he needed it and then started to believe their own spin. Hell I believed it. Then he showed up at the House GOP retreat in Baltimore and without notes schooled them all at their own conference.
If you notice that was when the teleprompter jokes suddenly disappeared. It was then that I was able to see past the uhhhs and realized that he was pretty good speaker. He can't touch Bubba as far as delivery but he has talent as an orator and has a solid command of facts at his disposal.

The details from the LA Times poll (the one that shows Trump up significantly):
Interestingly, while Clinton leads with more educated voters, she's only ahead among the lowest earners (people who make less than $35k a year).
Trump has also seen a recent surge in support among blacks to an astonishing and highly improbable 19%. At the rate he's gaining black votes his percentage of black voters will surpass Hillary's support from whites in a week or two. (Not that this is hard as Hillary only gets 1/3 of white voters).
LA Times/USC poll is a really weird poll. IIRC, they're using the same panel each time. Its never really been done before, and is interesting and exciting.
Voters are getting tired of other people's representatives. Their own, not so much. I predict that 90%+ of the incumbents running in the house will get reelected.
"Take their guns away, she doesn't want guns. Take their guns and let's see what happens to her. Take their guns away. OK, it would be very dangerous."
From that he is now again being accused of egging someone to assassinate her.
On a side note. I was talking with a client a few weeks ago who kept on trashing Hillary. I asked her if she was voting for Trump. She said yes and I said me too. We talked about Trump for a good 20 mins and now she really likes me. I don't this account will ever leave.
Will someone give me whatever reggs is taking?
