Trump is Al Czervik bringing the hoi polloi to the Bushwood Country Club




Trump will destroy the Republican Party? NYT story rebuts that assumption.

As the great philosopher Benny Hill taught us, when you assume --- ass-u-me -- you make an ass of u and me.

Perhaps the assumption that Donald Trump will destroy the Republican Party by driving away women, Hispanics, blacks, Muslims, and Rosie O'Donnell fans is wrong. Maybe the opposite is true.

Now I caution readers that I am relying on reporting by Nate Cohn of the New York Times:
He is strongest among Republicans who are less affluent, less educated and less likely to turn out to vote. His very best voters are self-identified Republicans who nonetheless are registered as Democrats. It’s a coalition that’s concentrated in the South, Appalachia and the industrial North, according to data provided to The Upshot by Civis Analytics, a Democratic data firm.
Indeed, Trump seems to own New York City and New York state, which last went Republican 32 years ago when Reagan took the state.

He found 29% of Republican voters prefer Trump, 36% of independents, 40% of Democrats, and 43% of unregistered "voters."

So what is happening? Is The Donald like Ronald bringing people into the party? We already know that Ronald like The Donald was loathed by the Republican establishment. Indeed, Jeb's daddy called Reagan's economic plan "voodoo economics."

In many ways, Trump is Al Czervik bringing the hoi polloi to the Bushwood Country Club.

  1. Trump doesn't have to worry about destroying the republican party. They are doing a good enough job on their own. They are turning it into the democrat party.

    1. But if we get 60 Republican senators and 300 reps and the White House, then we might be able to do something that slows down the rate of growth of the federal gov't.

      Or, Trump.
      wouldn't have said it a year ago, but Cromnibus, Planned Parenthood funding, terror attacks.
      Post grad educated, employed, near 1%'er willing to take a chance on a guy who won't be afraid to point out the obvious.

    2. The Congressional GOP establishment would be a President Trump's worst enemy. He'd get more support from moderate Democrats in Congress than he'd get from the establishment wing of the Republican Party. That's why a lot of them have to be challenged and defeated in the primaries.

    3. It is like what happens in cities, bad folks move in to a lousy neighborhood, and the not quite so bad folks move out. They go to a not so lousy neighborhood which becomes a lousy neighborhood, and the not quite as bad folks there move to a slightly less bad neighborhood until the good folks get bad folks moving in, and move out.
      So what happened in politics? Communism became a dirty word, so dirty that even the Stalinist communists quit calling them selves communists, and instead chose the acceptable thing closest to their ideals and moved in. After a while, the better folks in the democrat party changed to republican and took it over.
      Today, the republicans are democrats, the democrats are communist, and We the People are screwed.
      A moderate republican is a democrat who doesn't like rubbing elbows with a communist.
      Been that way a long long time.

    4. For a society that openly expresses disdain for the political elites and politicians in general, the 'smart ones' sure seem reluctant to hear the message, with which Donald Trump has re-captured the hearts and minds of millions of hopeful Americans. I Like Trump!

    Soooooooooo, we're asked to believe a NYT report on results of a Democrat polling company. Not this boy.

    1. He is strongest among Republicans who are taxed enough already, less influenced by communist infested academia and so disgusted with the republican establishment that they don't turn out to vote for RINOs. His very best voters are self-identified Republicans who nonetheless are registered as Democrats. It’s a coalition that’s concentrated in the South, Appalachia and the industrial North, according to data provided to The Upshot by Civis Analytics, a Democratic data firm.
      Like us folks in fly over country aint fed up with the D.C. crowd?

    2. What you say is true. What they say/claim...I have my doubts. After all, would they lie to us? Yes.

  3. What Trump represents is the vast numbers of people who are pissed at the "elite" leadership of this country who are following policies that actually hurt the working class. Illegals hurt the working class the most...followed by H1B visas...but the damn idiots who lead both parties think those are good things. I was forced to move out of Maryland because who the hell is going to hire me to be a master cabinetmaker/carpenter and pay me a professional wage when they can hire 3 illegals to do the same thing?
