For those who are still closely following the presidential race:
“Washington (CNN) – Donald Trump has a double-digit lead over Ben Carson in the Republican presidential race and voters say they prefer change over political experience, two new national polls show.
Trump leads Carson 32% to 22%, in a new poll by The Washington Post and ABC News.
And the real estate mogul leads the retired neurosurgeon 28% to 18% in a new Fox News poll …”
While I have become very skeptical of Trump, there is no one else in the Republican field who I would even consider supporting and I am pleased to see that Ben Carson has started to implode.
Trump’s rhetoric on a number of issues – refugees, crime, political correctness, immigration, campaign finance and trade – show that our ideas are increasingly popular. This will remain true even if Trump turns out to be a disappointment as a candidate.
Even if Trump is just dog whistling for votes, his poll numbers surely tell us something about the dog. The dismal failure of Super PAC backed establishment candidates like Jeb Bush, Rick Perry and Scott Walker also tell us something about the conservative electorate.
