Donald Trump has had one of the quickest rises and falls in the history of Presidential politics. Last month we found him leading the Republican field with 26%. In the space of just four weeks he’s dropped all the way down to 8%, putting him in a tie for fifth place with Ron Paul.
The April poll and the new poll can’t actually be compared on an apples-to-apples basis; as I noted at the time, Trump’s total was probably inflated by the order and wording of the questions. Those issues aren’t present in the new poll; the questions are written to treat Trump the same as other candidates. It’s an open question how much the of the drop in his support can be attributed to methodology and how much is voters simply noticing the unseriousness of Trump’s publicity stunt (which has always been vanishingly unlikely to amount to a real presidential campaign). In any case, we can probably stop pretending that The Donald is going to be a factor in 2012.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
