Would we expect anything less?
I would think it would be more.
With the Republicans attacking him yet offering no solutions on their condemnations, and the press bringing forth its constant anti-republican blather, get use to it folks, Donald J. Trump may well be elected president in 2016.
The Democrat candidates and the attack ads run by the D.N.C. when one thinks about it, Trump is politics of the year and deserved to be the Times Magazine person of the year instead of the do nothing Angela Merkle.
The press can’t help themselves see: Kids Scream “I Want to Kill Him!” While Beating Trump Piñata to “Stop Hate”
Of course Mr. Trump has made some stupid off the cuff statements.
If you have a better candidate please say so and why in the comments below.

Just how much is the news media shaping the GOP primary race? In the past three days, Donald Trump’s name has been mentioned 25 times more than the rest of the Republican field combined.The data gurus at The New Analytics Company measure “scrub” television, radio, print, internet and social media for mentions of the 2016 candidates to produce scores for each candidate that we bring you each week in The Edge.But given this week’s absolute media meltdown over Donald Trump’s plan to refuse entry to the United States any Muslim from any country, there’s really no comparison.So here’s a slightly different, ahem, angle on The Edge: On Monday, the day before he proposed the religious test for entry, there were 19,355 unique mentions of Trump across all media in the U.S. Way more than his rivals, but within a measurable range.Entire article below.His average for the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday was 64,638 mentions, a 234 percent increase in the size of his already huge media footprint. The combined score of every other candidate combined added up to the paltry average of 2,566 mentions over the same time.We’ve always known that Trump’s skill at creating and exploiting media hysteria gave him an advantage over his rivals. Now we know how big that advantage is: about 62,000 more mentions than everyone else put together.
[Ed. Note: While I’m quite flattered by Charles Krauthammer’s kind mention of my bacon sandwich test for domestic entry, I must take issue with the name for it he coined. I was saving “The Stirewalt Solution” for my character on “The Jersey Shore.” Back to the drawing board…]
