Trump says he could ‘run the table’ if he wins South Carolina

by David Jackson  |  published on February 19, 2016

First, South Carolina — then the nation?

Donald Trump seems to think so.

The New York businessman and Republican front-runner is poised to win the South Carolina primary on Saturday, and he says a big victory in the Palmetto State will open the road for him to take the GOP presidential nomination. “If we win in South Carolina, we feel we could run the table,” Trump told a crowd of cheering supporters in Walterboro, a line he has repeated throughout the state this week.

Some political analysts are skeptical, as are Trump’s Republican primary rivals: Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Ben Carson. All are chasing Trump across South Carolina and the country, each hoping for an eventual one-on-one showdown with the front-runner, starting with a surprise showing in South Carolina.

While Trump leads Palmetto State polls and most national surveys by wide margins, opponents point to evidence that his support could be softening. A NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll out Wednesday gave Cruz a slight lead over Trump among Republicans nationally, 28% to 26%. Rubio was third at 17%, followed by Kasich (11%), Carson (10%) and Bush (4%).

    Look who is doing the poll, ABC and Wall Street Journal both owned by Rupert Murdock who hates TRUMP AND REALLY WANTS TO BURY HIM SINCE THE MEGAN KELLY ISSUE. Nothing truthful about his polls, always BIASED….

  • disqus_MZe2ymfHQj

    That NBC poll was rigged. all other polls showed their poll not true.

    • Frankdidit

      Only a libturd democrap would listen to NBC/Wall Street poll.

  • timothymarc@sbcglobal.net

    Don’t believe a BS NBC poll totally designed to give Americans the false impression that Trump support is weakening. Nothing could be further from the truth. Unless you want another Republican marshmellow (Dole, McCain, Romney) who will again be eaten whole by the Democrats then you better vote Trump. He is the only one with the strength it takes to beat the evil forces within the Democratic party.

    • sb

      So right Timothy!

  • Cookie Vranish

    The WSJ would like their poll to be relevant, but it is silly with 400 people. I have seen just about every trick pulled on Trump but these people are just not as smart as they want to think they are.

    • Marie Saqueton

      The source of the poll is owned by Rupert Murdock the guy who hate Trump because of Megan Kelly. He is out to get Trump and he is powerful in the media he owns ABC,WSJ and others….Do not believe his polls.

  • Jim Lockwood

    And he’s an egotistical blowhard who he he says something and gets called on it, he back pedals and sidsteps and starts talking about other things! REMEMBER everyone, Dr. Ben Carson is in this for ‘WE THE PEOPLE’!!! He could easily be golfing, reading, writing and spending quality time with his children and grandchildren!!! DR. BEN CARSON and his wife Candy are so much like our founding fathers and their wives! It’s called sacrificing self for the betterment of our country. So PLEASE if you’re undecided, vote for Dr. Carson. You won’t be sorry!!!
    #GoBenCarsonWine

    • Cookie Vranish

      Ben is a nice guy alright but we need an egotistical guy that is smart and ballsy to straighten this country out. That is Trump for 2016 and beyond!

    • surfrgirl338

      I like so many LOVE Dr, Carson, If I or any of my loved ones had a problem with their brain he would be someone I would look up> But he is so humble and mild, I would not like to see him go to D.C with the boar hogs, They would eat him alive!

  • EmmaKate1Von Plouse

    I agree with you, Walter Flatt.

  • Deborah

    We need Donald Trump to get rid of the common core education issue. I wonder how many Americans would be appalled that the Islamic Indoctrination in our public schools. It is my understanding that for many of these schools they had to sign documentation that they would teach this stuff before they could get any grant money for their schools. This was wrong! I believe this topic should be an elective in college and not middle school! Many parents don’t even know what their children are being taught in schools.

  • Deborah

    I have read this morning that Gov. Haley is sneaking in immigrants and refugees into her State. I think this is wrong as it’s going against the majority of American people. It looks like Rubio would want to distance himself from her, after she has stated that she is supporting him. I hope no one chooses her for a V.P. as she is not for America’s safety. And I also read that Bush had stated that he would have a place for her in his cabinet? What is wrong with Rubio and Bush on immigration.

    I’m voting for Donald Trump 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Seedman

      Nikki reminds me of Angela Merkel. Marco will be remembered for The Gang of Eight fiasco and his penchant for licking his lips. Don has too many serious character deficiencies to warrant serious consideration. I will gladly vote for Ted Cruz as president, the best leader since Ronald Reagan!

      • Cookie Vranish

        Seedman fits doesn’t it. I would think you would get tired of posting the same thing. But maybe you have to wait for the next sheet of talking points!

        • Michael Dennewitz

          You apparently haven’t come head to head with the PROFESSIONAL TROLLS of the day. lol Wait til you butt heads with the likes of nastyass, AKshady, croco shit and headuphisass! That’s all akbutch knows how to do – cut N past!! Unreality chick is just as bad!!

          • Cookie Vranish

            I have come across AKLady. That one is like a runaway dope!

    • Cookie Vranish

      Gov Haley can do what she wants with her state. She destroyed the states history and Rubio’s chances. Trump 2016 and forward!

      • SABER

        Donald Trump has INDEED won South Carolina! Bye Bye Cubans!
        Haley has no sense backing a loser!
        Blow the TRUMPET LOUD!!!!!!!
        Trump 2016!!!!

  • jug

    I too was for Trump.
    That is until I did some digging, and listenedand compared.
    He is not who you think he is at all!
    Other than a big mouthed narcisstist.
    He has been all over the map, with the progressive democrat being something like 90 percent.
    He does business with a couple of crime families, supports and uses, eminent domain, has collected taxpayer money for 911 damage, when there was none.

    Also, when renovating certain buildings, the old hotel at Grand Central for instance, an on and on.
    What with his narcisstic tendancies, and his history, he is REALLY not presidential material!

    Cruz is the only one that will straighten this mess out!
    But be carefull, there are lots of false posts being put out in his name, trying to discredit him!
    Proving just how crooked and decietful his opponents are!

    • Cookie Vranish

      Another troll?

      • Michael Dennewitz

        They’re like cockroaches, they’re everywhere! lol

    • surfrgirl338

      But yet you are willing to credit Trump with your reports? I believe Trump is neither Democrat nor Republican he is a Pragmatist. He sees a problem and figures out how to solve it, The best person to see it carried out. He has donated to both sides of the political spectrem, He stated in the very first debate he had done this so when he needed something done he knew where to go to see it got done, He has not denied any of that, Eminent domain? Businessmen all over the world/country use it, Why does Trump have to be excluded? Bankruptcies? He personally has never been bankrupt but he has bought some FAILING businesses, threw them into bankruptcies, made a bunch of money restructured and saved many jobs. The “mafia” stories come from the casino he had, but he had to buy the “shady Chracters” out and get rid of them. No I really don’t care about these stories, what I care about is that I believe the man will do what he says he will, I believe the man loves this country, I believe he CAN do what he says, Cruz is establishment, Rubio is too young and in experienced much like Obama was and you see how that has turned out, Jeb reminds me of Baby Hughey Kaschih a nice man but nope not presidential enough, Carson? Too mild and meek.

    • Marie Saqueton

      SORRY, YOU ARE TOTALLY MISINFORMED AND BRAINWASHED BY THE PAID BIASED MAINSTREAM MEDIA. DO MORE RESEARCH IN THE UNBIASED ANALYSTS.

      • jug

        Nope, I dont believe a thing that comes out of todays media.
        I do my own research. And have since FDR!
        Me thinks its you who has been brainwashed, but we will see, if too many dummies do vote him in.

  • Seedman

    I will gladly vote for Ted Cruz for president. Ted is the best leader since Ronald Reagan! Don has serious character deficiencies which preclude him from serious consideration.

  • helensatmary

    Sounds like a cheap bet to me….That is all he is good for!! Running the tables. We are just a roulette wheel to this man!

  • SABER

    With Cruz YOU LOSE!!!
    VOTE TRUMP 2016

    • Cookie Vranish

      I like that one!

    #WithOutCruzYouLose…

  • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

    My vote is for TRUMP and I’m not afraid to go to the top of the hill and yell it in every direction. We NEED someone strong and who knows how to get things done FOR the people of this country and who does NOT bend over backwards apologizing and bowing to our enemies who have sworn to wipe us off the face of the earth. Trump may be offensive at times, but people have gotten so thin skinned they take EVERYTHING that is said that they don’t like personally and feel they are being “attacked”. Trump isn’t attacking…….he’s calling it like it is. These skin thinned liberals need to grow a thicker skin and get a brain transplant. And I’m from the deep south….Georgia, and Trump’s way of expressing himself sometimes isn’t what we’re used to here in the south but I have enough sense to realize he’s a damn yankee and that’s just the way he is. (I was 25 years old before I realized “damn yankee” wasn’t one word. LOL!) He doesn’t mean to personally insult or attack me or anyone……….he’s just giving it to everybody straight. He’s one damnyankee that has me convinced he’s the only one running for the job that knows how to get anything done FOR the PEOPLE and this great country! He understands things these other “politicians” don’t. VOTE TRUMP!!

    • Seedman

      Don is disliked and mistrusted by many. Some voters may be likened to children who do not know what is good for them. I will gladly vote for Ted Cruz! Ted is the best leader since Ronald Reagan.

      • Cookie Vranish

        Did Ronald Reagan lie as much as Cruz?

        • Seedman

          Don Juvenile told the people of Iowa specifically and the country at large that Dr. Ben Carson has an incurable pathological temper, comparable to that of a child molester! I to was deceived by Don for awhile. No more. I look forward to voting for Ted Cruz for president!

          • sb

            Carson said himself that he had a terrible temper– but God cured that!
            sb

      • sb

        I don’t think so!!
        sb

    • edorr1atcoxdotnet

      What if Putin, or one of the other leaders make Trump mad; aren’t you afraid he might flip that switch on red button thus starting a new WW? I sure don’t want Hillary or Bernie (the commie) as President but think Cruz would be better. Oh, by the way I am a Retired Air Force Vietnam era Veteran so I’m all red, white and blue as well.

      • disqus_MZe2ymfHQj

        You should know that no one person can hit any button that would unleash Nu- Clear war fare It’ takes several people and
        a unmistakeable code.

        • Marie Saqueton

          Not even an idiot would dare push a nuclear button for fear that his own country will get the radiation as well because of the weather which will be impacted. Nuke is just for show of power to threaten and to secure their defense. Sometimes, as we have seen with Iran, to get billions from America. Ha,ha,ha,lol. They have the last laugh at our leaders…..

      • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

        I understand what you’re saying but no, I’m not afraid he’ll “hit the button”. Remember, he or whomever is POTUS wants to live as long as anyone else. He’s way too smart to act so impulsively in my opinion. I like Cruz for 2nd place. Maybe VP? That might be a win-win ticket. We need a strong LEADER, not just another politician with no experience of any kind. Being a member of Congress is not any kind of experience I don’t think……..unless it’s where one learns greed for oneself and how to lie and backtrack effectively.

      • Marie Saqueton

        Business people never react impulsively. They do a diligent study on what the ramification, repercussion,etc,etc, before they respond or act on anything. Foreign leaders will be scared of Trump because he could devastate them in his new foreign trade agreements which could impact their economy as America is the biggest consumer country in the world today. He promised to revamp the lousy trade agreements the Democrats did for the past 50 years majority they had in both houses. It is time the world get a taste of a brave Pres. that they cannot make a “doormat” out of. Trump will scare the hell out of our enemies….May God bless his safety and good health….

    • sb

      Good article True! I like what you said!

  • Jm

    If anyone thinks Trump is a closet liberal or closet GOPe, you can forget that. This guy has been unbelievably pummeled by all media, all opponenrs and now even the globalist Pope. Noone else would have a prayer after all that. It is funny how when you ask people about Trump, they are so politically correct that they are afraid to say they like him until they figure out you support him then they are all in for him. I think voters are afraid to say they are for him until they get in that voting booth.

    • Seedman

      I started out liking Don and thought I would vote for him. No more. As I closely listened to Don, it was contradiction after contradiction. His background and recent deeds show serious character deficiencies. I will gladly vote for Ted Cruz!. He is the best leader since Ronald Reagan.

      • Cookie Vranish

        You are a copy and paste troll!

  • Walter Flatt

    I BLAME ALL CHURCHES,LODGES, MASONIC,KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS, ETC AND ALL TAX EXAMPTION ENTIES FOR THE SHAPE THIS COUNTRY IS IN. AFRAID TO OPEN THEIR MOUTH ABOUT THE PROBLEMS OUR COUNTRY IS FACING, THEY ARE AFRAID OF LOSING THEIR TAX EXAMPTION. THERE ARE ONE OR TWO ECCEPTIONS.

    TAXES THAT HAVE BEEN RAISED WITH OBAMA CARE AND I BLAME THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES FOR LETTING THIS HAPPEN. LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU BECAUSE OF WE THE PEOPLE HAVE ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN. THIS IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICE BERG OF THE DAMAGE THEY HAVE DONE.

    MEDICARE————————-1.45% TO 2.35%
    TOP INCOME TAX——————-35% TO 77.4%
    TOP INCOMPE PAYROLL————–37.4% TO 52.2%
    CAPITAL GAIN ——————–15% TO 28%
    DIVIDEN TAX———————-15% TO 39%
    ESTATE TAX———————–0 TO 55%
    PLUS ESTATE TRANSTATCION TAX–OF-3.5%

    IT IS TIME WE ALL PULLED TOGETHER AND ELECT A PERSON TO GET OUR COUNTRY STRAIGHT AND THAT PERSON IS DONALD TRUMP, HE IS THE ONLY QUALIFIED PERSON RUNNING WITH THE EXPERIENCE TO RUN THE LARGEST BUSINESS ON EARTH, THE US GOVERNMENT AND IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HELP THIS COUNTRY YOU WILL GET BEHIND HIM AND MAKE HIM THE NEXT PRESIDENT. HE IS A STAND UP, NOT OBLAGEDED TO ANYONE, EVEN THE PRESS. WE THE PEOPLE DO NOT WANT ANOTHER INEXPERIENCED SENATOR AS PRESIDENT.

    • Marie Saqueton

      Remember this was inside the Obamacare voted unanimously by all DEMOC-RATS,NOT A SINGLE rEPUBLICAN VOTED FOR THIS.

  • Nana

    I don’t think Trumps voters are softening at all. I know people who have never voted in their lives signing up to vote for him. don’t believe everything the media writes. It’s just a game to get people to think well maybe if that’s the case maybe they should vote for someone else. He’s the only one with balls to stand up to the criminal thieves in the our government positions which we’re taking back soon.

    • Walter Flatt

      YOU BET WE ARE NOT SOFTENING, WHO ON EARTH WOULD VOTE FOR A ONE YEAR SENATOR, THAT IS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR AGAINST A PERSON THAT IS PAYING THEIR OWN WAY AND NOT OBLIGATED TO ANYONE, HIGHLY QUALIFIED TO RUN A BUSINESS AS LARGE AS THE US GOVERNMENT. ONLY DONALD TRUMP. I MY 85 YEARS I HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON RUNNING. DONALD TRUMP.

      • Elizabeth Valentino

        GOOD FOR YOU WALTER FLATT, I LIKE YOUR COMMENT.

      • surfrgirl338

        Walter Flatt I second that, at 80 years old/young!

    • Seedman

      Don Juvenile Trump has said he will make no attempt to roll back abortion law or homosexual marriage. It is highly unlikely God will allow America to be great again with such immorality. I will gladly vote for Ted Cruz as president! He is the best leader since Ronald Reagan.

      • Cookie Vranish

        Did Ronald Reagan lie too?

        Wrong again Seedman!

      NANA, NOT SOON ENOUGH! YES, TRUMP HAS BALLS, THANK GOD SOMEONE DOES! THE MEDIA IS OUT TO GET ANYONE THEY CAN UNFORTUNATELY, BUT IT IS A GAME, WHO WILL WIN? DON’T KNOW, JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE.

      • Alex Alexander

        trump speaks from the heart with what is in the hearts and minds of every American and what every American was afraid to say because of the loss of our Freedom of Speech due to fear of retaliation from the government.

      One has to remember, the demoncraps own the socialist media, so, like the PMIC, whatever they say, can’t be trusted!!

      • Marie Saqueton

        The ELECTORAL COLLEGE who really elects the Pres. is what concerns me. How do we know they cannot be bought or threatened? Who are they in your State? My state shows a lot of foreign names. Try researching who is voting for you, and weep.

      I agree Nana!

      Couldn’t have said it better myself, Hang in there SC 61/2 hrs to go and we can elect our nominee
