Romney Landslide: Here Are the Biggest Names Predicting It & How It Will Happen | TheBlaze.com

Mitt Romney will win the election -- here's why - Bill O'Reilly | Newsday

Krauthammer: Romney will win the presidency | Fox News

And that rabble is bellying right back up to the bar of misinformation that left them dumbfounded when reality smacked them upside the head on Election Day 2012.

It's time to admit it. The sheep who listen to Limbaugh, who watch Hannity, who read Glenn Beck? They all want to be lied to. They want to be told happy little bedtime stories that shelter them from reality. That's the 'secret' of the Trump success in winning the Republican nomination. He's the perfect fit for people who not only don't mind being told obviously-false nonsense, they openly crave it. They beg to be conned, duped, manipulated, defrauded.

And they're getting it!
If I didn't know better, I'd think you were describing Hillary (or any liberal politician).

And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is a textbook case of psychological projection.
