If Adolph Hitler instead of living in Germany in the 1930's currently lived in the United States and was running for president how would he do?

Trump's popularity makes you wonder

  • I think he would easily win as most would vote for him
    38% (6)38% (11)38% (17)Vote
  • I think he would get a lot of votes but wouldn't win
    25% (4)31% (9)29% (13)Vote
  • I don't think he would get many votes even the weirdos that support Trump wouldn't vote for Hitler
    37% (6)31% (9)33% (15)Vote

  • That's how Hitler got in though. The country was scared of certain things, going through hard times, they blamed finding it hard to get jobs on certain groups and things like that.
    When a country is facing difficulties with the economy and also has a threat, it's easier for people like that to win people over.
    Trump is playing on fears and difficult economic times, so did Hitler.

  • Hitler was incredibly charismatic and a pro at propaganda. Yeah I think he would do incredibly well. Possibly even win. Unfortunately we live in a country full of idiots

    • You are one of the few that get it. First of all we are talking about Hitler not existing in the past so people would not know about what happened in Nazi Germany. Second he would not be able to say the things he said in Nazi Germany but he would be like Trump on steroids. He would be incredibly offensive and ironically get a lot of people on his side that think like this.

    • I could see him gathering all the crazy Christian fanatics in the country and convincing them tk basically believe in what the terrorists believe in ie killing all the non-believers

    • I wouldn't doubt anything.

    • Please elaborate. How are Obama and Hitler even remotely similar?

    • hope and "change", did you see any of obama's rallies when he was running, trying to control everything, blaming everything on someone else...

      Care to explain what trump and hitler have in common?

    • "trying to control everything, blaming everything on someone else" yea that's kind of what politicians do, all of them.

  • As a historian, I would be careful with such comparisons. Germany was in a very different situation in the 1920s and early 1930s than the US is now. Things were much more disrupted and screwed-up. Both economically and politically. Hitler didn't just get to power because he was a smart man, he was also very lucky (though this might be a cynical word to use in this context). His "Machtergreifung" (seizing of power) was only possible due to a number of circumstances and conditions that were just right for him. Maybe to just name one as an example: hyper-inflation. The US economy might still struggle a bit but hey, these days all economies around the world struggle. Americans are not even close to having to use a wheelbarrow to bring trillions of dollars to their nearest bakery to buy a loaf of bread. In the Germany of the late 1920s, this was reality.
    We have many right-wing and neo-fascist parties here in western Europe today and none of them without the exception of the French Front National comes even close to getting into power. The reason for this is pretty simple: we're just faring way too well for people to get brainwashed into voting politicians like that. Nonetheless, I do not doubt for a second that things could theoretically easily happen again in a similar way.

  • Why is it anyone in politics is automatically called Hitler anytime someone disagrees with them? Lol

    Trump's popularity isn't because of the issues you seem to think they are. We are stuck in a two party system where both parties favor the rich as they distract the poor by turning everyone against a everyone else. Trump is seen as an outsider to that system.

    Some issues that are accused of being racist such as illegal immigration, have been hurting poor Americans for a long time, as this has lowered the cost of labor. It is a real issue, but neither party takes it seriously as more low paid immigrants means the rich don't have to pay people what they are worth.

    While I do think Trump takes things too far, it just shows how desperate some Americans have become to break away from this two party system. Remember how Obama ran under hope and change? This is this is the same thing. It isn't that people like Trump, they are just desperate to change the trend of the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer.

    The more the Democrat and Republican establishment hates Trump, the more people will see him as the outsider fighting against the system designed to take advantage of the poor.

  • Right, and Trump would have the same power Hitler had in being able to arrest anyone he wants and holding them indefinitely with no probable cause or anything thanks to NDAA being signed a few years ago. Not to mention he has similar intentions with his whole deportation ideas..

  • The difference between trump and hurled is that there is often some level of validity to what he says. He just says it really stupidly.
    Hitler was a much more dynamic speaker than trump, it is concerning how well he might do.
    Every horrible leader that has actually been chosen by the people, always seems to come at a time when people are like, "Well. Anything is better than what we have now," or, "The last guy pushed through orders that he shouldn't have been able to do, didn't listen to the people, and didn't respect his citizens, we want our guy to do it better."
    I don't think trump is hitler.
    But he is concerning.

  • Whateves, if you think most people dont think the way trump does - your in for a big surprise. But the bottom line is we need to be politically correct about things and respect others. So thats why its looked as bad

    BUT in reality it does indeed solve the problems. It allows people to enter at the same time puts a big Spotlight on them

  • he'd win at least 25% of the vote, or more. This is partly why i'm still in favour of feminism existing. As much as their bullshit can irritate me sometimes, im also glad that they act as a bulwark against American fascism. The fact that they will turn out and vote for hilary to prevent a trump victory is a good thing, despite her shadiness and connections to wall street.

    • He was probably the most effective public speaker that ever lived. Unfortunately he was a villain.

  • I'm no Trump supporter, but comparing him to Hitler is really misinformed. If anything, Barack Obama's promises of hope and change are much more Hitler-like. Obama is also not a US citizen, much like Hitler was not originally a German citizen. Now, having said that, Mr. Trump has gone too far a couple times, but at least he's not a criminal like Hillary Clinton (remember her numerous scandals) or a socialist fool like Bernie Sanders. Hell, Democrats have kept people in chains when Republicans wanted to break them.

  • None at all. Remember that the United States is extremely pro-Israel due to that weird Evangelical religious Zionism eschatology. Hitler's anti-Semitism would not fly with most Americans. The irony is that he may have an easier time getting the Left to vote for him since they are less pro-Israel than the Right.

  • Everyone would vote for him. Most americans are sheep with minds like putty, they are so easy to brainwash and make them believe whatever you want. And Hitler was great at convincing people, so it would be really easy for him. He'd probably get at least 80% of votes

    • What I noticed is that Trump just says something and it is believed. It doesn't even sound like he is telling the truth. Hitler was much more convincing in his speech.

  • He would manage to get a lot of votes, but the people of 2015 are better informed than the people of 1930's Germany even though the US is still pretty good with propaganda.

    • He would say what he needed to get elected. He wouldn't talk about extermination camps. He wouldn't be able to say what he did in 1930's Germany. He also would not have the power he did because our system would not allow it. The point is he would probably be able to fool the people into voting for him because Trump has proven that the people are easily led if you just say certain things that they want to hear.

    • I'm not saying Hitler would not be elected, but there is a lesser chance due to more readily available information. Unfortunately as you said, "people are easily led if you just say certain things that they want to hear."

  • lol dumb comparison
