Shockingly awesome numbers from a recent CNN/ORC poll show Donald Trump with 44% of ALL voters judging him the best candidate on either side to change the way Washington works for the the better. That is ALL candidates, Dems, Reps, socialists, greenies, Tea Partiers, independents of every stripe, and all the rest who make up this great melting pot we affectionately refer to as the American electorate.
If the brain-dead Republican Party is going to throw away their frontrunner, then the third party option looks very promising!
