The GOP Presidential Field As Cartoon Characters
If the Republican presidential candidates were cartoon characters, who would they be?
Over more than two hours on Tuesday night, pollster Peter Hart asked a focus group of Republican voters in Indianapolis a battery of questions about the 2016 hopefuls.

DONALD TRUMP: The Tasmanian Devil. Dennis the Menace. Richie Rich. The Incredible Hulk.
