Am I missing something here, or have almost half of us lost our minds? I am talking about the percentage of people who at this point are considering voting for Donald Trump for president ["Trump, Clinton neck-and-neck," News, Sept. 14]. He was at 43 percent in a recent poll.

Yes, I've heard the media say people like him because he says what they want to hear. I just don't understand how voters can possibly relate to a billionaire who is constantly bragging about his wealth and takes his limo to serve for jury duty.

I've also watched his events and have seen thousands of people cheer as he ridicules and insults people. He reminds us that he will get rid of immigrants here illegally so fast our heads will spin.

Well, my head spins just thinking about the possibility of this man becoming president. Is this what our country is coming to? Really scary.
