Donald Trump Runs Away With Hispanic Vote in Nevada

From Gateway Pundit:
The pundits said Donald Trump could NEVER win the Hispanic vote after he said that many Mexican immigrants have raped and murdered people. 
Pundits said Rubio would win over Hispanics because he supported the Gang of 8 amnesty bill. 
They were wrong. 
Donald Trump won the Hispanic vote tonight in Nevada. 41% of Hispanic Republicans voted for Trump compared to 29% who supported Rubio.

I am not a Trump guy, but this scene is kind of like when Gordon Gecko disrupted the Teldar Paper annual meeting in the famous "Greed is Good" speech.

I'm not a Trump guy either, but yeah.

I should be more specific, however. While I am not a Trump guy, and while I am a Cruz guy, it is my opinion that Cruz is not electable, and his bizarre behavior and lack of control over his own machine has proven that he is probably not up to the task of being President even if he were electable.

Trump on the other hand has been in charge his whole life. His bizarre behavior is simply the behavior of an entrepreneur who is used to being in charge. He is relaxed, and in control.

Additionally, I should mention that having been in marketing my whole life, and having spent much time around entrepreneurs, and the media business, I recognize Trump for what he is, not just a entrepreneur, but also a guy who knows the media. He dominates in the media realm. He beats them at their own game.

Therefore, while I don't much like Trump's politics, and while I do not think he truly understands what made America great in the first place (the Constitution), I have to admit he is a fit for me in some ways:

1) he will help end the GOP, which at this point I tend to think is MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than losing with Rubio (the GOP's favored candidate at this poiint),

2) Trump really does love America and will work to make America Great Again, in the sense that he understands that

3) he will surround himself with people who know how to get things done

4) he will take power away from the Political/Media/Academia Complex

5) he will stem the tide of illegal immigration

6) he understands Islam well enough to know - better than any other candidate other than Cruz - that an unchecked tide of immigration from muslim countries is a national security disaster

7) Trump understands that the cooperation between big biz and the GOP needs to end, that the little guy needs to become more powerful in this nation in order for the nation to thrive

and 8) that's because Trump understands the economy better than any other candidate.

"2) Trump really does love America and will work to make America Great Again, in the sense that he understands that."

Too few people have noted that aspect of Trump's personality. He is a guy about my age who doesn't feel obliged to make excuses for the America he grew up in. That is really important to me because that is exactly how I feel.

I love the country I grew up in and it bothers me deeply that a new generation is coming of age against the backdrop of a thoroughly distorted view of American history.

The left makes the perfect the enemy of the good without ever having to produce any example of the perfect. It is a negative, nihilistic attitude and it has infected this nation like a virus.

The young today have no idea what they are missing or why. If nothing else Trump gets that.

It's funny that probably all of us are not "Trump guys," but we sure enough identify qualities in him that appeal to us. I agree what you said, but there is another candidate who fully understand the threat of Jihad: Dr. Ben Carson. He is still my choice without all hopes ...

Yes, Ben Carson not only believes in those things, he embodies them, and he is a good man.

Thing is, he does not have the personal power to destroy the GOP, or diminish the Political/Media/Academia Complex.

He's a good man, but he does not have a commanding air. He's no Reagan, and he's no Trump.

I had my primary last Saturday and went over to the polling place in my (temporary) wheelchair and voted for...the guy who came in last, Ben Carson. Of the six I liked him best and that is what voting is about for me.

I have lots of reservations about Mr. Trump but in a General election between Trump and any Democrat I'll pull Trump's lever without any misgivings.

I'll worry his administration later.

This is the first time in my life I have heard from many people whom I consider hard Demonrats speak about the possibility of voting Republican, if Trump is the candidate.
