Trump Supporters, don't let this get you down

It's almost sickening listening to Milwaukee radio talk show hosts, Charlie Sykes and Jay Weber.  It's a good thing they're not on TV. 

Both of them must have been drooling as they read and commented on the news stories below. These guys are supposed to be conservatives.  

I have listened to them for years. I used to respect them.  I used to think they were intelligent.  How smart can anyone be if they regularly alienate a huge percentage of their listeners. They don't just bash Trump, they belittle his supporters.  Well, they are on the brink of losing at least one listener.  Not that they care. 



These stories can be depressing for us Trump fans, but we shouldn't let them (or guys like Jay and Charlie) get us down. Here's the real story behind these polls -

Dr. Ben Carson now leads Donald Trump in two polls in Iowa, enough for the mainstream media to go wild with wall-to-wall coverage.
The Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register Iowa Poll released on Friday morning Carson led Trump by nearly a double-digit lead, 28 to 19 percent respectfully.

But the former neurosurgeon still has a serious problem: his support is a mile wide and an inch deep.
According to that same poll, only 15 percent of Carson supporters said there mind is made up, while 83 percent said they could see themselves supporting someone else.
Trump had the twice the level of loyalty from his supporters, 32 percent said they have settled on the billionaire while 67 percent said they could still be persuaded.

Carson’s surge could be a matter of style over substance.
A majority–69 percent–of likely Republican Iowa Caucus goers supported Carson’s statements about a Muslim president being unacceptable. While 46 percent said they were less likely to vote for Trump because he attacked other candidates.
