The news just gets worse for Donald Trump. The latest Iowa polling showing that Carson is nearly doubling Trump's percentage in Iowa. It goes to show that while Republicans have no problem with insulting Mexicans and women, you have to avoid insulting them as Trump did in calling Iowans brain-damaged. What will be his insult/answer to this latest blow to his ego?

I think he did himself no favors by insulting Iowa voters directly, but I also think that his attitude toward women is hurting him too. Just because conservative women don't identify with feminism doesn't mean that they think it's OK to demean other women on the basis of looks and their "worthiness" of Trump's sexual attention.

"Women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said."

I know what you are implying but this is not the same. Trump is leading nationally and had a large lead in Iowa, as well. He not only lost it, but he lost it badly over a short period of time. This suggests an underlying weakness in the Trump candidacy. While we can't quite yet stick in the fork, we can get it out of the drawer.

The repubs are doing their best imitation of the dems strategy of making mountains out of molehills when it comes to Trump.

Disgusting!

the more the GOP reveals itself the closer I am to voting for trump.

The DOJ clearing the IRS is another reason to raze DC and use what is handy to make a change.

A lying community organizer with a propaganda machine is far worse than any charges of entertainment directed towrad trump by repub machinery.

Maybe it is the GMO corn. We'er just now starting to see the long term effects as farmers wonder aimlessly around in the corn fields looking for the illegals they hired to harvest the crops.

Jose crack corn and I don't care, master is gone away.
