Bruce Springsteen believes that President Donald Trump will win a second term in the White House. 'I don't see anyone out there at the moment... the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump,' the rocker told The Sunday Times Magazine. Springsteen, who is a long-standing Democrat himself, said the political party doesn't 'have an obvious, effective presidential candidate' who can 'speak the same language' as Trump.The iconic Born to Run singer went on to talk about the 'life-changing, upsetting occurrences' that have caused division in the United States. During his interview, Springsteen, who in the past campaigned for former president Barack Obama and presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, said that there are a lot of reasons people 'became Trump voters'.One example he gave was the 'severe blow to working people in the 1970s and 1980s as all the steel mills shut down'. He then said the explosion of technology really affected people who may have found themselves in a country that they didn't 'feel part of' or they felt they were 'being dismissed'.

He is the only President who keeps his promises, and the only President who is achieving amazing success.
Strategist saysHe is the only President who keeps his promises, and the only President who is achieving amazing success.That's a lot to get out of nothing more than the fact that you voted for him.
You might as well quote Jeffrey Dahmer as an authority.
The fact is that Trump, despite being a snake oil RE type, told ppl that it wasn't their lack of STEM education (as if all PhD/postdocs have full time jobs in R&D) ... it was the system, which was stacked against them.
why was he so much a fan of ppl like Clinton, who basically told the rust belt workers to go back to college and get a degree in computer science, when there are so many of them, being displaced by both, H1-B workers, outsourcing, and the preference for MIT/Carnegie-Mellon-ers, instead of 2nd career types?
he was never a blue collar worker
Bruce Springsteen and Donald Trump have a deep work ethic.Anyone who achieves that level of success have a deep work ethic. This includes any high level political candidate that you have heard of. The problem is not a lack of hard work with Democrat candidates, it is the ideas they bring like $15/hr wages while pushing unfettered illegal immigration, and other policy attacks on the working people.

Trump will be pretty easy to beat, baring a serious third party effort
Do not underestimate the stupidity of D's.
Try reading the lyrics of "Born in the USA" without the sound. He used to play concerts for hours, really physical work, saying that if the audience could stand it then so could he.
If he really was the working man's hero, he would draw for himself a upper working class salary and donate the rest to causes like subsidizing factories in depressed areas, renovating the inner city, and so on. Instead Bruce would rather sleep on a sewer grate every now and them and claim that experience helps him relate, then go back to living like a Sultan.
Republicans were generally worse, e.g. Romnesia.
jazz_music saysUnconfirmed estimates put Springsteen’s wealth at $200m or more. He admits in his autobiography: “I live high on the hog, yacht around the Mediterranean and private-plane myself between dental appointments.”Ok, this is where I draw that line!I was one of the starting dozen at a hedge fund and I'm nowhere near $200M. The only ppl who're in that northern category are the three principal partners, the first top trader, and the one who'd succeeded him.Aside from that, we're all low level millionaires but unlike the so-called Boss, we actually act like white collar types. There's no hypocrisy there!

Rin saysI was one of the starting dozen at a hedge fund and I'm nowhere near $200MYea but Springsteen created something that has given and continues to give pleasure to millions of people, music. Hedgefund bros. not so much.
