Candidates of today leave a lot to be desired.

Reader comment on item: MEF's Surprising Straw Poll on Trump

Submitted by Anne.....USA (United States), Apr 10, 2016 at 15:52

This has been a wild and crazy campaign season....We had 19 candidates in the Republican race that should have exited the scene long ago, the demonizing and dividing was really a downer by Mr. Trump. I think Trump is too much of an elitist, and he is of the establishment elites who want amnesty and cheap labor, (Big Corporate.)

As for the Wall, how many similar promises have we heard from others about stopping illegal immigration? Obama allows Syrian refugees in with Isis and militant age Islamic men, the whole system of government has been turned upside down by Obama and Hillary leaking national security secrets from her emails..... they are two heads on the same coin, we now have to worry about North Korea, and Iran having Nukes and then the rest of the Middle East will follow due the left's unthinkable exasperating policies toward Islam, as if they are somehow stable nations and should be allowed to do anything. I think Cruz has good experience as Solicitor General of Texas, arguing in front of the Supreme Court, he worked for Justice William Renquist, and has been a Senator who is not part of the establishment.

I think he has been consistent on his views and policies, looking at his past record. What people don't want is another flash in the pan celebrity who promises things and never delivers.....I think Mr. Trump should stay on the apprentice, he is better at showbusinesses than at politics.
