We all know how polls are crap.

Except of course the online straw polls that Ron Paul wins by 40 points. They are meaningful.


Anyway, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll has Mitt Romney in the lead which really is no surprise. The fact that Mike Huckabee, a guy that’s been at or near the top of the polls since Obama took the oath of office is no surprise either. The stunner here is the fact that tied with Huck and only four points behind Mitten is none other than Mr. Bad Comb-over himself, Donald Trump.


Here’s one pundit’s explanation of Trump’s success:

Mr. Trump “may be a punch line but when he talks about the way to solve our problems, he makes a lot of sense to the average guy out there,” said Todd Mauney, a conservative Republican in Weatherford, Texas. “I don’t know if people can get over him being the butt of every joke but for me, he can be serious when it’s time to make real decisions.“

Well, I guess there could be worse things than Melania Trump as first lady…
