At the same time, cops are being targeted by thugs after some cases of police brutality, and PC police think going to war with ALL cops is going to be the solution. As a result, cops have stopped doing their job in some cases out of fear and crime has risen. Secondly, the TPP and other such deals send more jobs out of the US and to foreign countries like China, which Obama has been soft on. And then, Obama has done nothing to confront Russia's aggression. Elsewhere, illegals pour through the border, taking advantage of benefits that many of our citizens don't enjoy, and some of them cause crime. People are sick and tired of idealism and PC dictating what we do and making us weak. So they flock to a strong leader----Donald Trump, who tells it like it is. The People's Billionaire has been leading for months now and that won't change anytime soon.
Completely agree, and I'd add that people want to be proud to be American again, and they're sick and tired of Obama and the progressive left telling them that something is wrong with America, always apologizing for our actions, etc. They want this country to be GREAT - just like Trump's trademark slogan. I'm voting for Trump!

Did he learn from his mistakes, realize the GOP couldn't win in 2012, or GOP voters don't want to go the mushy middle Romney route again?

It was deemed "racist" to not allow the "first black president" a second term. The media told us so.

He is the campaign messenger, the energy, the de facto campaign manager. He, for whatever reason, was not interested in 2012. A shrewd, calculating businessman, he rightly calculated there was no beating Obama. This time around he seems to sense blood in the water, has attacked some, will attack more and is circling more. Sizing them up.

Yup.
Now, all Trump has to do is actually win a primary. Until then, we are all just backyard dogs, barking at the night, and Donald Trump is only this year's Michele Bachmann.
