OK, so if Donald Trump makes his way through the gauntlet that is known as the primaries, and gets to the convention…then weaves his way around the land mines set up by the GOP leadership and actually gets nominated, what happens then?
What happens is Hillary Clinton steps in a big pile of dog doo-doo.
The reason is because, Trump pulls in 36% of blue-collar men. Make that YOUNG blue-collar men. Yes, these are the Harry Beal types, who open the window and shout they’re mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore. But it IS a rage going on in the country after 7 years of a president who can’t lead. People are looking for a leader, and that happens to be the one thing Trump knows how to do.
So, why should Hillary be afraid? Because she WILL lose. I’m more convinced than ever that Trump can actually win this thing. After making a comment on Muslims that Trump made this week, and getting lambasted in the press, we learn that he actually went UP in the polls. That’s telling because had he been any other candidate in history, he’d be conceding and “suspending” his candidacy right about now. Instead, he’s gloating.
And why is that something that Hillary should be afraid about? Because the country is on to her lying. And while she may end up with 35-40 percent of the vote next November from the numb-mind Democrats who would have voted for George Pierre Hennard (go ahead and look him up), she can’t get by Trump. He’ll be outrageous, he’ll call her out on her lying. He’ll call her out on Benghazi. He’ll probably have her in tears before the damn thing is over.
Now, notice I haven’t said that he’s the best candidate, or the best person to be president. That’s something I’ve not reached a conclusion on. But as far as physically GETTING to the White House, yeah…he’ll make mince-meat of Hillary. And that’s why she should be damn worried about him.
If you could put Trump’s character into Marco Rubio, I think we’d have a decent GOP candidate. Trump’s leadership experience and moxie into a guy with the knowledge of Washington and how it works, and someone with more conservative values without going postal on us…I could see that.
But for the moment, Trump is the leader. It doesn’t help anyone to call him “not a serious candidate” as Jeb Bush is doing because frankly, he’s leading the field. That’s a moniker I’d be ladling on Bush at this point (with 3-5% of the vote). No…Donald Trump, IF he makes it through the gauntlet and the land mines, should be the nominee. I’m just not sure what type of president he’ll make!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
