So...this is your roundabout way of saying you prefer an empty suit who is beholden to his/her mega-rich donors and puts those donors ahead of their constituents.

That's what's been going on in recent years^ How's that been working for us so far?

They were all proved wrong.

Ronald Reagan was a dedicated candidate who wasn't invested in his celebrity unlike Trump.

People say that now in hindsight, but they sure didn't say it when he ran for the nomination and then president.

They said it when he ran for governor too.

Political opponents made fun of him for starring in a movie with a chimpanzee. Said why not run the chimpanzee instead?

Running for president gave him national exposure. Same arguments were reused.

We need someone to stop the corruption in DC. Neither side wants it to end and the Establishment supporters are all for it.

You didn't address point. Nobody expects that all corruption will be ended.

There is a difference between supporting a candidate who is against the corruption vs supporting a candidate that is already there and a part of the corruption.

Reagan was also the Governor of CA and the President of SAG. He also wrote commentaries that he read on the radio from 1975 through 1979.

Never ONCE did Reagan have to talk about his genitalia in public, nor did he ever compare an opponent of either party to a pedophile or call an opponent a maniac, sick, "little" or imply a debate moderator was bleeding from "wherever" or that a former candidate would "get on his knees in front of [him]"

Donald Trump is NO Ronald Reagan.

I think somebody like him should be in charge of enforcing immigration law, and I don't agree with him on trade.

I don't think he is a hawk, definitely not just another neoconservative hawk. For this reason alone, He seems to be a more attractive candidate.

What reputation is that? The bowing reputation? The 13 year war reputation? The easily beat on a negotiation/deal reputation? The badly in debt reputation? The educational world standing reputation?
