Rasmussen Poll: 71 Percent of Americans Think PC Is a Problem

Donald Trump’s un-consultantized speech about political matters has had many positive results, most particularly honesty about immigration and borders. Also high on the list of accomplishments is his effective mauling of political correctness.

    The GOP “leadership” seem quite content to give away their constitutional powers and enjoy their positions without the responsibilities. I suppose it makes for a more comfortable life in the beltway. The President that would stir them up, though, would be Cruz, not Trump.

    • They need stirring.

      I saw a poll this morning reporting that 75 percent of Republicans were angry with the party.

      • Trump wins my vote for only one thing – killing Political Correctness.

        It is long overdue.

    I predict Trump will leave the GOP and run Independent.

    He can win with fewer voters in a 3-person race than in a 2-person race, and this favors the nature of his support. He’s assembling a strong minority of voters but may never get a strong majority once the other candidates work out an attack plan.

      Interesting perspective. I will keep it in mind as things unfold. You may indeed be correct, but who among us is clairvoyant?

      The distinguished political scientist Richard Hofstadter wrote, “Third parties are like bees. Once they sting, they die.”

    I have to admit that, while I’m not a Trump supporter, I really respect him for his outspoken outspokenness. At the moment there’s very few public personalities with the courage to freely speak their mind if their opinions buck the politically-correct script. Go Trump!

    The GOP has got out the long knives for Trump. He is more of a threat to them than the Dems.
    I look forward to hearing “You’re fired” echo throughout Washington millions of times.

      Many of us are.

    In an era when only a minority of the population is even capable of elucidating their perspective precisely, political correctness leaves the majority virtually incapable of expressing themselves with any degree of precision. Political correctness, I would venture to say, silences the majority of people today. This could not happen if the population had not been prepped with years of “dumbing down” by the education system. Today’s high school graduate is lucky is s/he can read at a Grade 7 level by the time they graduate. I got rather depressed during my last ten years working as a consultant because of this. I remember one client’s list of prospective employees for three available positions (30 candidates in all) included not a single candidare who passed a rather straightforward reading comprehension test section of the screening process.
