The Haircut Smells Free Money
And he’s looking to cash in on those sweet, sweet birther bucks.
Washington (CNN) – Donald Trump is now tied with Mike Huckabee for first place when Republicans are asked who they support for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, according to a new national poll.
One contributing factor could be his numerous appearances in the national media. Trump’s questioning of whether President Barack Obama was born in the U.S. has put Trump smack in the media spotlight the past two months.
“If Trump is rising in the polls because of the amount of air time he has gotten, it would be difficult to tell whether his gains are due to what he is saying or simply due to his increased visibility. In a field of more than a dozen potential candidates, all air time is good air time,” says Holland. “Most presidential seasons get to a point when the voters are looking for a fresh face. That’s what gave us Fred Thompson in 2008 and Wesley Clark in 2004, to name just two examples. If the Republican rank and file has already hit that phase, Trump would be the obvious beneficiary.”
It seems that The Haircut’s recent swan-dive into the birther cesspool is paying off. He’s definitely gonna ride this gravy-train, because you can’t get that many fools and that much money in the same place without attracting some pretty big parasites like him. It’s only natural.
