    Default Trump wins with the votes of people who don't like him

    Three years ago, President Trump was elected because he isn't Hillary Clinton. But he won't have her to kick around in 2020. And none of the Democrats running is as bad as Hillary when it comes to turning off voters. She's in a league of her own.

    Of the 54% of the public that disapproves of Trump, I'd wager that a third of them have some sort of stake in the stock market. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    So say you've got 18% of voters who a) have a piece of the market and b) don't like Trump. Right now they're telling pollsters they won't vote for Trump. Come election day, a lot of them will have a change of heart. They won't admit it to pollsters. They might not admit it to their own family. Trump is a controversial man. But in the privacy of the polling booth, they'll ask themselves, "Do I really want to vote for the Democrat, and watch my investment tank? Or should I vote for Trump, who will work every day to boost the market?"

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Fox and CNBC, that a Trump loss to someone like Warren or Sanders would sink the market. And the longer the Democratic primary lasts, the more the economy-killing ideas of the candidates will be understood by investors.

    Trump, in part, measures his success by the market. He's open about it. He's sending a message. At a recent rally, he told of seeing an old adversary in the White House, a successful businessman he knew well, and he knew that this guy didn't like him at all. The guy explained that he was there to help Trump get re-elected. "I've got no choice!" he said.

    The president loved telling that story. Then he smiled at the cameras and said with a smirk, "You may not like me, but you've got no choice!"

    He's right.

    I would not pick Trump to be my friend, or to have lunch with...but I voted for him, and will do so again. He holds my hope for the future of our wonderful country in his hands.

    I am the first one to agree that Trump have a lot of defects, but, WE ALL have our own defects, therefore, I would not have a problem being his friend and/or have lunch with him.
    We, as human, need to look above the pity defects that every human being has and look up to the good things that most human being have, I believe if every one were to do so, we will have less conflict in our daily lives.

    President Trump has proved himself to be a fighter. I respect that personality trait. He attacks what have been considered to be 'tough political problems'. His results speak for themselves.

    I was a never trumper until the day he won the nomination. Then my never-hillary side trumped my never-trump side. I agree with Joe Hohmann. Trump wasn't a good person but he's been a great president.

    I think, though, that Republicans risk making the same mistake that Hillary made. Hillary didn't lose because more people liked Trump. She lost because more Democrats assumed that she would win without their vote and then didn't show up at the polls. If Republicans make the same mistake, and think Trump has this in the bag, Trump will lose and we will lose.

    I never watched the reality shows of Trump. I never thought of him as a reality tv host. I have always thought of him as a developer. I remember seeing a video of him at one of his job sights, maybe it was Trump Tower, I don't know. But he's on the ground with a hard hat on and walking around yucking it up with the workers. Then he asked them "do you think it will be on time?" And they responded "yes", and he just smiles and says "maybe sooner". I've liked the guy ever since. I'd love to have dinner with him (if he buys).

    EDIT: I didn't think he would win.
