Trump wins South Carolina GOP primary

by
February 21, 2016

Donald Trump swept to victory in the South Carolina Republican primary on Saturday, putting him in a commanding position as the race shifts to a slew of delegate-rich contests.

Jeb Bush, though, abruptly suspended his campaign after a distant finish, leaving unclear to whom his supporters will gravitate.

But Trump, at his victory rally, seemed to dismiss the notion that other candidates would benefit from Bush’s exit.

“[The pundits] don’t understand that as people drop out, I’m going to get a lot of those votes,” Trump said.

He said the primary race lately has been “mean” and “vicious” but: “When you win, it’s beautiful.”

    Hey South Carolina just showed the the rest of the Country that they are not as slow as they thought, South Caroline just gave the rest of the Country a wake up call and they are not going to put up with it any more,
    Go Trump

  • David

    Don’t trust TRUMP!!! Why? because: 1) he wants to repeal Obamacare (by his words on CBS &on NBC’s Meet the Press) and replace it with a system that will pay for everyone’s Healthcare (the very definition of single payer healthcare what Obama/Pelosi/Reid/ other Democrats wanted to begin with) 2) he was Pro-choice till he ran for the Republican Presidential nomination at which point he changed to Pro-Life, so we can’t know for sure where he is NOW 3) He financially backed Hillary’s 2008 campaign 4) he’s a businessman that found the best ‘deal’ for running for the Presidency in the Republican party (though he has said “Democrats run the economy better”, has it gotten better for you under Democrats?) 5) he’s a one-dimensional thinker (building a wall on the southern border won’t stop illegals from a)digging tunnels b) climbing c)piloting boats/ships to get in illegally).

    It just amazes me how anyone can compare Obama to Trump. Trump is a man’s man and a lover’s lover. He is strong but very kind and generous to even people he never knew at all, such as the widow in Georgia whose family far he saved or the Veteran at one of his speeches who had been mistreated. Trump is a very hard worker and all of his children and wives agree with that. Trump does not smoke, do drugs, or drink alcohol. Trump knows how to treat people with respect and has created real jobs (not wasteful government ones). Trump knows that money has to be earned, it does not grow on trees. Trump has confidence in his own abilities because he has earned that right, unlike Obama who has no basis for his self infatuation. Trump is blunt and brash, but truthful and speaks from his heart. Obama dazzles with crafted weasel words and lies as long as he has a teleprompter. I am sorry, there is not even the least similarity between Obama and Trump.

      Totally agree!!!!

  • rwendling70

    Our task vis-à-vis JEB supporters is simply to show them Reagan beat the “establishment” in 1980 by making much the same appeal to pissed-off Republicans as is Donald John Trump. You are either a supporter of Constitutional American government or you are a Demorat-Progressive-Socialist-Communist. (Show JEB supporters the party platforms of the Democrats and the Socialists for the last few cycles, and those jebbers will awaken.)
    Go Trump 2016!

    ONLY TRUMP CAN SAVE AMERICA !!!!!! GO TRUMP GO !!!!! REMEMBER FOLKS – POLITICIANS + LOBBYIST = CORRUPTION

    • JACIE

      Trump is the only chance we have. The lying , thieving , politicians are so afraid because they will lose their cushy jobs and might actually have to work for a change. They are all parasites living off the people.

  • cowboy

    Good job, Mister Trump! Keep that train rolling, all the way to the WH.

  • Pam

    All the “talking heads” were bragging about how the endorsement of “Gov. Haley” was going to push rino-Rubio over the top. He only beat Cruz by 0.2% and lost to Trump by a full 10%! I would be interested to know from any of you who actually live in South Carolina how you feel about your governor and if her endorsement affected you one way or another.

  • jug

    I rather doubt that many of JEB’s supporters will be swirching to Trump!
    Will be more likely going to the other big RINO, Rubio!

    Why do people who want “outsiders”, automatically gravitate to the loose cannon, Trump?
    The guy who has always been with the progressive democrats.

    You want an “outsider conservative”, your man is Ted Cruz, period!

    He is the guy who has worked so hard to get rid of obuttholecare, the guy who called Bitch McConnell a liar to his face, which was/is truly deserved. McConnell helped Nancy, Harry and Chuck Schummer have a better year last year, than they ever had when they were in charge of the House and Senate!

    And, if you didn’t know, that was helped along by Trump donating just over a quarter million dollars to that RINO, Bitch McConnell!

  • Bill Blackstone

    The small percentage of voters that Bush had will effect this primary very little. I have been reading, most Bush supporters will not be voting in the Republican primaries if Jeb drops out. That’s just as well. Just makes Trump stronger.

  • billyrb1

    Our next president Donald Trump

  • mike h

    You always twist the facts. Trump did not specifically state anything about bush and his votes, he referred to the talk about candidates, like cruz etc etc the ifs … get you facts right. Also, Cruz is not an outsider… nice try teddy boy

    • jug

      Somebody that has fought “The Establishment”, tooth and nail, called the majority leader of the Senate a liar, “is not an outsider”??????????

      Which planet do you hail from, “boy”?

  • ralph

    I am looking forward to Trump as next president for we havve already had Cruz in office and nothing has changed at all want to have some one already in office start calling for Tom Cotton with all the communist in congress this man made a differance. I will vote for Trump and Carson they are out siders and that will work to get the job done that needs to be done in Washington and it would help Greatly if the American people would just grow up a little bit and stop with the don’t give a dam for this coujntry is the only thing standing between life and death. This country holds the world together and that shoould be easy to see now with a use less jerk of communist trash in office of the president now which we do not have a President for the last seven years or lawmakers

    • podunk1

      Wonderful words I would love to believe are backed by deeds no different than the traitor in charge… I’m sure Trump can destroy people when he wants to. Trump proved it by digging into his bag of chaos and deception to destroy the only true allegiance bearing patriot running for president…

      “Never again”, says Goliath will be humbled by supreme powers of evil… Hillary when she throws America into perpetual darkness.

      • TAM44

        You’ve been asleep for seven years and are still drowsy, go back to sleep. killery climton has not been challenged yet as bernie sanders has helped her more than you know. Mr. Trump will not treat this lying piece old democrat piece of human waste that bernie has done. cruz is and insiders and I’m sick of these pukes letting obama do as he pleases.

        • podunk1

          You’re babbling like Trump & that will be what gets Hillary elected. Barking dogs can’t hunt & will be running in circles because fox knows exactly where he is all of the time & just how to make him think the possum he treed is a fox, while fox is on another hill watching & laughing! Unfortunately, neither one of us will be laughing because the USA is in death throes right now.

          Judge by deeds, not mouth, especially when one promise mocks another, backed up conflicting deeds! There is near zero difference between my fight and 90+% of Trumpeters regarding lawlessness, corruption, and tough enforcement! I don’t hear the words insurrection, rebellion, treason, or betrayal of allegiance; nor any mention of Amendment 14 Sections 1 “… No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens…”; 14-3&4 “No (oath bound) person shall … hold any office… (who has) engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…”; Article 3 Section 3 “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort…”; and 2nd OATH: (Vice President, Cabinet, federal judges, all other civil… military officers… federal employees other than the President…) “…defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic… bear true faith and allegiance… without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion… will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office…(every word)”!

          Betrayal of allegiance and treason are highest capital SUPREME LAW crimes in the USA! They’re enforceable in every court of the USA (Article 6), mandated by allegiance of every oath bound person, or by citizen, INCLUDING TRUMP! Supreme Law is written and can’t be changed without ratification by ANYONE including SCOTUS. “Anything to the contrary notwithstanding” (Article 6) is the silver bullet to end treason! Trump is MIA! Trump is attacking patriots, not “in our face traitors”!

          • frank_o_anerican

            Cruz plays dirty, nothing he says is true, even the fact checkers couldn’t believe all the stuff he tells on Rubio and Trump are nothing but made up lies. He has told so many lies and ran so many false ads, I can see why none of the people he works with like him. Plus he holds up every thing, if he doesn’t 100% like it, nothing has been passed because of him. he over does everything.

          • podunk1

            Don’t like the Constitution???? Wait till Trump trumps it & turns the USA into Syria.

  • Citizentobe

    Believe it or not the Bush proponents will gravitate to Rubio. Then, the winning formula, unfortunately, will be Trump/Rubio.

    • Kent2012

      or the ho and the socialist, when the crybabies all stay home and georgi sortoes’ bus company takes democrapo voters from polling place to polling place to vote as often as possible all while enjoying their new “free” notebooks….free phones are so blase and so 2007…

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      Won’t be Rubio, more likely Trump/Carson, and still possibly Trump/Cruz.
      Rubio, is a RINO, pushed by media, and the GOP establishment, it appears that the people don’t want that. Cruz’s biggest problem is that he is an evangelist, that frightens a lot of people. Cruz has a lot of good qualities, but if he is perceived as a closet “Bible Thumper” then that will be his down fall. Trump and Carson do not wear their religious beliefs on their sleeve. This makes them more palatable to the general population.

      • Citizentobe

        Sorry, I disagree, because Trump will need a “non-conflictive” insider who will try to unite the GOP base around him. Besides, Rubio will be the light-weight “Apprentice” in this real “reality show” who will follow Trump as his strong leader. (Sorry for the intended redundancy). At the end of their first term, Trump will be fed-up with politics and will pass the baton to the “Graduate” Rubio. That will be the condition for Rubio and his PAC and Super PAC supporters to accept this deal. In the meantime Khillary will be watching all this in orange uniform, a masterful work of Trump. P.S. Unfortunately, Dr. Carson has been quite inconsistent in his campaign. May I suggest not to believe what you seem to read and/or hear in the media?

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          There is no need to be sorry. We are both stating our opinions based on what we see. Opinions are a very difficult thing to argue, let alone discuss. Your suggestion is well taken, however I do not follow what talking heads say, simply because most of the time they are pushing their own agenda, and like the weather forecasts, they are usually wrong.
          I do not doubt for a moment that I could be wrong, who knows, we may both be wrong, or partially right.
          I do agree with you on Carson, but at the same time, he is a dark horse so to speak, he might be a viable V P choice for a number of reasons. Personally I would like to see a Trump/Cruz ticket.
          Now, let me put on my tin foil hat. If I was Trump, and just from the point of self-preservation, there is no way that I would have some-one like Rubio placed into a position where if anything happened to me, he could take over, that would be tempting fate. I think I would take Cruz as V P, this would lessen my chances of an “accident” as the G O P RINO establishment is far more afraid of Cruz, then Trump.
          I sincerely hope that you are correct that the Hilda-Beast will be in an orange jump suit watching this.

          • Citizentobe

            If something would happen to president Trump and VP Rubio would become potus, do you think Trump would care?
            Trump is too smart to bring to the table another outsider like Dr. Carson, who BTW was my first choice for President. But his inconsistency made his campaign implode. He is next out after Bush.

          • Constitutionalist

            I hope Trump would not choose Rubio. I would rather see Cruz or Carson as his VP. I would like a Cruz/Carson ticket as well. Carson is very down to earth and true example of the American Dream success story. That might have appeal to a lot of people.

        • Bill Blackstone

          Unfortunately. Trump will just pardon Hillary. He needs her contacts and pull to get anything done. Then Hillary will stab him in the back. That of course. Obama doesn’t off Trump. Call for martial law. No elections. Floods the USA. With illegals. Sends this country into bloody Civil War. Then we will become his dream. A third world nation. Because it’s not fair that we have everything and others have nothing. Share the wealth. This way we are all equally poor.

          • 75matt

            But look how Obama steals from average and elderly Americans. And lines his pockets and uses millions of $$ for his vacations. Share the wealth means let me pocket everything and I don’t care about you slaves.

        • jug

          Unfortunately, I think you are pretty close to what is in the cards.

        • Glenda Jordan

          Much the same as it was with Reagan. Establishment didn’t want him but finally came around if they could get “their guy” in there as vp Bush Sr.

        • Constitutionalist

          Well, Rubio has been the penultimate liar in his campaign.

          • frank_o_anerican

            Cruz has Rubio beat with the lies, both are bad.

      • Constitutionalist

        Carson certainly wears his religious beliefs on his sleeve. He is always quoting the bible and referring to his religious beliefs. I think what scares people most about Cruz is that he comes across as someone who will never compromise…his way or the highway…and he is a very strict constitutionalist. I don’t think Trump will choose Carson as his VP, but I think Cruz would.

        • Pam

          I worry about Cruz’s eligibility, but a strict Constitutionalist is exactly what we need! Someone who will go in and eliminate all these “departments” that have no Constitutional authority to exist! Someone who will return to the States and the People what is rightfully theirs to control.

          • Constitutionalist

            Actually, Cruz is more eligible to be POTUS than is Trump. Trump’s mother was born in Scotland. To be eligible for President, one has to be a natural born citizen. THAT means BOTH of your parents must be BORN as US citizens (not naturalized). Interestingly enough, a child IS a US citizen automatically, regardless of where he or she was born as long as the mother was a US citizen. However, that does NOT make the child a “natural born citizen”. So, while Cruz IS a US citizen by birth, he is NOT a natural born citizen because his father was not a US citizen (at the tie of Cruz’s birth). However, Trump was not even a US citizen by virtue of his birthright because his mother was not born a US citizen. She was a citizen of Scotland. So, Trump is ineligible for the same reason that I personally , am ineligible. (My mother was born in Romania, even though she became a naturalized citizen long before I was born.) Likewise, Rubio is not a natural born US citizen, either, So, none of the top three are technically eligible to be POTUS (just like Obama was not eligible, as his father was NEVER a US citizen). The ONLY candidate left standing is Carson. Carson absolutely fits the definition of a natural born US citizen.

          • frank_o_anerican

            Cruz is not a constitutionalist or he would know he is not a natural born citizen an can not run for president. I want some one that doesn’t lie about everything.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          I guess I must have been some-where else, because I have never heard Carson quote from the Bible, but then I have not paid all that much attention to him, except to know that he isn’t right for the job of president.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

    • rex ames

      Not really my friend, of course anything is possible here especially now. I believe Kasic and Carson if they hang in there, will draw votes away from Rubio and send Trump to the nomination. Here’s the other thing, Bush monkey only has single digit support, and that does not mean all of them will support Rubio. If Trump were smart he should offer to support Carson and Kasics financial support so he can glide to the nomination. Maybe give these guys a position with him in the White House. I lknow if Trump wins the nomination, he will win the White House. The conservatives will vote for him before they would vote for Hillary in a presidentcial race. They will get allot of Regan Democrats crossing over. Believe me allot of Democrats want jobs to, and they want a safe border protection too. Trump will win by a landslide.

    • rex ames

      . Trump has been consistant from the beginning. Cruz and Rubio ran Trump in the dirt for his views, and now these two liers talk about trumps views because they know protecting the borders, imigration, and jobs and economy are important to the all Americans, and that includes Democrats that will cross over and vote for Trump just like the Regan Democrats did. Trump even had the guts to take on the Pope after the worthless news media baited him into talking about Trump.
      I think after all we Americans have been through with Obama, Trump is the only one strong enough to weather the future storms, and Cruz and Rubio can just fade away and keep doing nothing in the senate like they have been doing. The thing is, I look at what a man and his past accomplishments in his job, and if he’s done nothing then why would I a president..
