    Fivethirtyeight's analysis seem to suggest that in the past terrorist attacks have boosted Trump's exposure and given him a little bit of a 'bounce' in the polls: http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/...lim-sentiment/
    However, this effect only seems to be a few percentage points at most so at Almanis we've seen the probabilities of him being the Republican nominee and then going on to win the general election as fairly stable:

    De-radicalization programmes and anger management for jihadists in local community centers is the solution.

    Well yes, hence he's doubled down on the Muslim travel ban - something that most of Europe probably wants by now, truth be told :rolleyes:

    Depends, really.

    According to the denizens of Twitter, whenever a muslim commits an act of terror, muslims are the victims *eyeroll*
