So The Donald is not a conservative. So cuffing what?So there you have it... Explains a lot. At least you're honest.
The Donald supporters showing up are, by and large, not conservative Republicans, and more importantly, not voting in the primaries. But they will be there in November for the general election, and The Donald is already playing for THAT prize.Wonder how that's going to work... If the Donald's supporters don't show up in the primaries, then wouldn't logic suggest that there will be no Donald left to vote for in the General?
But thanks anyway for clarifying who the Donald's supporters are, and are not.
By the way... Didn't FR use to be a conservative website?
You’re right FR did used to be a conservative website, and in an objective sense, it still is.
But “conservative” has become a sort of bastardized code word for “what the liberal media hates”, and has been been associated with racism, homophobism, intolerant anti-Islamism, sexism, and pretty much composed of a bunch of old angry white men. You know, and I know, that the true sense of “conservative” is nothing like that.
So in a sense, The Donald, while not conforming to the older sense of “conservative”, is still an iconoclast that is busting up all the Politically Correct horse pucky that has people in fear of saying ANYTHING. Clearly, The Donald has demolished what he terms to be “low-energy” potential contenders for the Presidency, and while people do not think he has clearly articulated his positions, he has come out strongly on immigration, the Second Amendment, and taxing and spending policy. The Donald also criticizes the ineptitude of our foreign policy, painting it as an inability to sit down with adversaries across the table and hammer out deals which provide mutual benefit to BOTH sides, and not the one-sided giveaway programs that only further drain what is left of the concept once known as “the United States of America”.
The Donald is very much a populist, he has found a parade, and he has gotten around in front of it.
As far as The Donald gaining the nomination of the Republican party, the establishment types will finally, grudgingly, allow it, because while The Donald may not have a large majority of the Republican primary voters, in the winner-take-all plan for a particular state’s convention votes, so cleverly contrived by the Establishment, gives the votes to the person with the largest plurality, and so far, The Donald has been able to attract that all along.
