5. He's very popular. Very popular indeed, within the Republican party.

And that party takes up fully half, sometimes more, of US voter turnout.

Jeez, I pity you US Americans! For your political system.
It's like, everything is reduced to two, and those two duke it out with fists in the coliseum while everyone throws tomatoes and even live squid.
You've got these no-holds-barred primaries that occur only right before elections. I mean, right before. To the fucking minute. So there's no time to blink before you get to vote for your monarch.

It doesn't make sense to me, so the kind of year-long campaigning that goes with it doesn't make a lick of sense to me.

I mean, dirty politics? Tell me about it, DU.
The whole process seems to be designed to eliminate any actual political ownership, by the people.
