My African-American friend in Brooklyn told me early in the Primary that she had experience with Donald Trump through her position which put her on the opposing side. Her view was Trump was the only one tough enough to handle the left, win the presidency and keep it.
She has turned out to be right. He has brought some working people into the Republican fold from Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio and other regions, who, if he keeps them through his actions, will become a permanent Republican majority.
Republicans have been disadvantaged with unions because of their crony relationship with the Democrat Party but that hasn’t given them jobs. Jobs keep going overseas and Trump means to change that.
Obamacare premiums skyrocketed in the weeks before the election and that helps explain why Hillary lost.
While not a big fan of pollster Frank Luntz who was betting on Hillary winning, he did say something people might agree with.
Luntz told Sean Hannity on his show that he did think Trump had a “good chance” and “thought he was absolutely viable” because of his message, but then he said something more significant.
“If Trump can keep this majority of these new voters,” Luntz continued, “who have never voted Republican before and bring back some of those Republicans from the suburbs who voted for Clinton but voted Republican all the way down the line this is a long term majority. He has a chance to change politics as we know it if he can keep both of these two groups together and he has the ability to do it.”
The fact is that Trump has already changed politics as we know it, he thinks out of the box. We are also truly seeing the leftists who have taken control of the Democrat Party for what they are. You have angry, aging failures who won’t turn over power to the younger generation because they are control freaks who want to control everyone and everything and it’s hurting them.
Trump is drawing huge crowds at his thank you rallies and just having those rallies are of themselves brilliant. The left calls it terrorism, but the people who voted for Trump thank him for thanking them. What did Hillary do? She took donors’ money and threw a party for the very rich donors and lied about why she lost. The Democrats still don’t get it.
