Today, they had a focus group of evangelicals in South Carolina discussing the candidates - mainly Cruz and Trump. They showed then a compilation of Trump saying all his curse words and they were visibly turned OFF. Several said - to them, that was a disqualifying display.


The majority were for Cruz.


So, NO, crudeness does not play everywhere.

ever wonder why he's leading the GOP candidates in unfavorables?

Trump's Negative Image

if he wants to get over 30% of the GOP votes, he'd better clean up his act and stop being an imbecile.

I saw that. Cherry picking hundreds of hours of speeches at rallies spanning 7 months they came up with about 5 curse words. How do you like a compilation of Cruz's stumbling and mumbling? BTW, they were all Cruz supporters regardless.

Lol, what a joke. And the news media couldn't wait to bleep it--then use every substitute word possible to let the viewer know what they missed.

They should have done what radio stations around here do: using the word to denote a wimp is fine; using it as that awful word for a body "part" is a no-no.

Just whose sensibilities were offended, anyway? Gimmeabreak.
