Trump

Just had a weird vision 

Prime Minister Corbyn flying Easy Jet to Washington ( lay overs in Reykovik and St Johns Newfoundland) sitting in the Oval Office discussing matters of state with President Trump 

The brains trust need not worry

It's hard to imagine a less compatible couple.

Because Corbyn travels on Easy Jet and Trump on Hair Force One? 

I am still struggling to work out which set of voters would be stupid enough to vote one of them in!  Yikes

The UK government have just decided they need a private airliner. I would expect Corbyn to discontinue that.

Not at all. They shared a lot, more than just autocratic control, more than domestic massacres, more than militarism and thuggery.

Corbyn and Trump? You could never describe Corbyn as interested in self-promotion, Trump is little else. Trump is focused on money, I don't think you could accuse Corbyn of that. Headline seeking? Different again. Avowedly xenophobic? Different.

Do you want more?

Yes. You need a 2D plot for this. At least.

Best quote on strange bedfellows... "If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the devil in the House of Commons."

The problem with political jokes is that from time to time they get elected.

Male blue collar GOP supporters appear to be behind Trump, but the feeling is that as the other candidates drop out, very few will go to him (i.e. his number have already peaked).  Trump has low support from women and evangelicals are likely to go elsewhere.  Will be interesting to see where he stands when the 14 horse race becomes a 3 horse race.

Each time he makes one of his brash statements I'm thinking. this must be the one that brings him down.  It seems that he can say what he wants and get away with it though.  From disparaging comments about women, to building a wall and kicking out all the Mexican's, to mocking a disabled reporter, to the recent Muslim comments (1,000's cheering on 9/11 and the 'Muslim ban').  Talk about Teflon....

Here's the graph, but I don't know how to show it inline... yet.

PS: Don't worry, he isn't favourite to be party candidate, let alone President.

But Jonathan, left and right hardly apply in this context because the ends curve around to nearly touch.

I would accuse Trump of populism and being a demagogue but Corbyn's record is the antithesis of that.
