    Jeremy Corbyn is an atheist, do you think the leader of any mainstream US political party could be elected if they declared the same?

    This quote should alarm everyone.

    And it's part of a very consistent pattern. It's how he talks. All politicians lie & bend the truth - but Trump is truly pathological. I never read his book, but it's my understanding that he talks about how effective hyperbole can be.

    He's really sort of crazy if you look at how he talks. Delusional - not honest w/ himself or the people he is speaking to.

    I conceded that all politicians lie & bend the truth. Like everything else, though, Trump is on another level. He's a pretty weird, delusional guy.

    His appeal continues to elude me. I definitely see it as a "dumbed-down masses" thing, and I hate sounding elitist about that. But it is what it is.

    Have you considered the possibility that we've already elected atheistic politicians who lack the honest to admit it?

    I totally get the appeal but I have my reservations about him. The dumbed down bit is a false narrative. Most of these people have given up on the Republican establishment [and even the Tea Party in some cases] to affect any changes. My state is a perfect example: WV has literally bled good paying jobs over the last decade and it's adversely affected the whole states economy.

    Nobody in DC cares but Trump at least pretends to.

    If you think it's stupidity, or racism or nativism, you don't get it. The same sort of thing is going on in many other parts of the country where jobs are scarce because of trade policy, immigration policy or environmental policy.

    Trump said in his post debate interview he's being audited because he's a strong Christian. So awesome.

    I get that people are desperate, and agree it's wrong to just classify them all as stupid. I have some friends who support Trump, and they're normally pretty smart.

    But these people are getting conned, in a huge way. This guy is such a fraud. He hasn't offered up one specific policy, even though he's pressed to over & over again. His best answers are that it's better to keep those things secret, or "believe me."

    Just a total fraud.

    Well, do you believe half the crap Obama says? Do you believe anything Hillary says lol? Weren't a majority of voters conned not just once, but twice by Obama and his Hope and Change schtick?

    I don't see where Trump supporters are more stupider than anyone else. Arguably more cynical, but that's a different thing.

    Trumps claims remind me of North Korea's claims about Kim Ill Jun, like that he does not go to the bathroom.

    Totally different. Obama talked about his universal healthcare plan in the campaign, and got it passed. He talked about the stimulus, and got it passed. He has specific policy proposals - whether people agreed w/ them or not, they had a general idea of what he was going to do.

    Not the case w/ Trump. It's just "believe me." Oh - and he's a bigot & misogynist, as well.

    So, I disagree- you have to leave your mind at the door to truly support Trump.
