Trump 2.0…’Telfon Don?’

A new sheiff is at the White House these days….

John Kelly, Trump’s new chief of staff has corralled the campaign hanger on’s and sent them packing….

Kelly won’t let the rightwingnut contact Trump unless they get an ok from him first…

Donald Trump has cut back his tweets….

And if you look carefully?

Donald Trump mentions have dropped from the front page on the media by a good amount….

Politico is out with a piece that procliams Trump as ‘Telfon Don’?….

The piece argues that Democrats can’t touch the guy….Huh?

Democrats are actually picking up wins in state races left and right and narrowing Republican wins in specail elections for Congress….

Democrats tried attacking Donald Trump as unfit for the presidency. They’ve made the case that he’s ineffective, pointing to his failure to sign a single major piece of legislation into law after eight months in the job. They’ve argued that Trump is using the presidency to enrich himself and that his campaign was in cahoots with Russia.

None of it is working.

Data from a range of focus groups and internal polls in swing states paint a difficult picture for the Democratic Party heading into the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential election. It suggests that Democrats are naive if they believe Trump’s historically low approval numbers mean a landslide is coming. The party is defending 10 Senate seats in states that Trump won and needs to flip 24 House seats to take control of that chamber.

The research, conducted by private firms and for Democratic campaign arms, is rarely made public but was described to POLITICO in interviews with a dozen top operatives who’ve been analyzing the results coming in.

“If that’s the attitude that’s driving the Democratic Party, we’re going to drive right into the ocean,” said Anson Kaye, a strategist at media firm GMMB who worked on the Obama and Clinton campaigns and is in conversations with potential clients for next year.

Worse news, they worry: Many of the ideas party leaders have latched onto in an attempt to appeal to their lost voters — free college tuition, raising the minimum wage to $15, even Medicare for all — test poorly among voters outside the base. The people in these polls and focus groups tend to see those proposals as empty promises, at best…..


Some of us would argue that ‘s piece in Politico isn’t based on reality….


Replying to

So based on evidence from PEOPLE ACTUALLY VOTING, Trump hasn’t been “Teflon” and GOP problems might be bit *worse* than polls let on.

Dems flipped two very pro-Trump districts in special elections last night, There was a 28-point swing to Dems in NH. A 31-point swing in OK.

In addition to last night….

Daily Kos has pointed out that since the November election last year?

Democrats are on a wave with wins in state legislative elections wins….

The ‘New’ Donald Trump?


Last night Donald Trump won a BIG one….

His home state New York….

In the past his speech confirming the win would have been a long rant….

It wasn’t….

For the last several weeks it has dawned on Trump that he maybe winning votes…

But THAT isn’t gonna get him the nomination…

Delegates will….

During this recent period Trump has been finding out that Ted Cruz has been STEALING delegates Trump THOUGHT he had…

last week Trump actually got serious…

He went out and hired some professional experts on how the GOP picks it;’s nominee…

His guys that have got him to where he is have been shoved aside…

There first instrctions to their boss….

Calm the heck down…

Ya gottago establishment….

Now I have to make a comment here…

Trump GOT to head of the line by  BEING Donald….


If his new handlers seek to take the enteratiner away?

Who will he be?

Donald Trump 2.0 made his official debut Tuesday night following his sweeping victory in New York, a win that looks to net him 90 delegates and reestablishes him as the man to beat in the Republican presidential race.

That version of Trump was markedly more disciplined, gentler and more appealing than the version of Trump we’ve seen for much of the last year. And, that fact should scare the hell out of establishment Republicans who believed that their efforts to keep Trump from the 1,237 delegates he needs to formally capture the GOP nomination was beginning to catch on.

Why? Because it’s clear, at least for now, that Trump is listening to his new political advisers — chief among them convention manager Paul Manafort and national field director Rick Wiley. Trump’s change in tone on Tuesday night was absolutely unmistakeable to anyone who has paid even passing attention to his campaign to date. The man who had built his frontrunning campaign on a willingness to always and without fail take the race to its lowest common denominator — was suddenly full of respect for the men he beat and full of facts about the state of the race….



Donald Trump 2.0 coming to a TV channel near you….

Trump has a sit down with the Washington Post in which he talks about the second phase of his run for President…..

In an hour-long interview with The Washington Post at his 26th-floor office in Trump Tower, the Republican front-runner ruminated on the many obstacles ahead. Sitting at a desk piled high with magazine covers bearing his image and strewn with polls and other testaments to his early success, Trump said he is far from satisfied with what he has accomplished to date.

“If you don’t win, what have I done? I’ve wasted time,” he said. “I want to make America great again and you can’t do that if you come in a close second.”

Trump laid out for the first time in detail the elements of what will be the second chapter of his 2016 bid, signaling an evolution toward a somewhat more traditional campaign. Trump is preparing his first television ads with a media firm that is new to politics. Melania, his wife, and Ivanka, his daughter, are planning public appearances highlighting women’s health issues to help close Trump’s empathy gap with female voters.

Trump is also publishing a book and planning to roll out policies on reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs and on trade and China’s currency manipulations. And he is deepening his political organization far beyond the early states, with top advisers vowing that his fight for the nomination will go all the way to the floor of the Republican National Convention….
