Donald Trump’s an idiot, but he’s also a fool

Dirty Donald Trump leads Jeb Bush in Republican presidential nomination race.

Real estate magnate Donald Trump moved to the top of the 2016 Republican presidential field in a CNN poll released today, edging rival Jeb Bush and gaining support from Republicans in the last month despite a series of controversial statements. Trump’s support among Republicans increased six percentage points since late June despite a flood of rebukes of Trump after he said McCain, a former Navy pilot who was tortured during more than five years in captivity during the Vietnam War, was not a war hero because he was captured. His strong showing in the latest polls also all but ensures him a spot onstage at the first Republican primary debate, hosted by Fox News, in Cleveland on Aug. 6. Trump has been criticized by fellow Republican candidates and party leaders for making incendiary comments about Mexican immigrants, belittling McCain’s war record and for his personal attacks against rival Republican White House contenders such as Senator Lindsey Graham and former Texas Governor Rick Perry. “I don’t think Mr. Trump is qualified to be commander-in-chief, I think he is bankrupt when it comes to all the qualities you need to lead the men and women in uniform and to lead a great nation,” Graham said on ABC’s “This Week.”

In Iowa, his favorable/unfavorable rating among Republican voters is 45 percent/44 percent, and in New Hampshire, his favorable/unfavorable rating among Republican voters is even weaker — 39 percent/53 percent.
