What Will The Establishment Do After Nevada?
With the most recent polls showing that Donald Trump is once again leading in the polling in Iowa, and having a 20 point average lead in both New Hampshire and South Carolina, Donald Trump will all but officially be the winner of the Republican party nomination after the month of February. He will obviously not have the official number of delegates required after just three states, but with his poll numbers so high in all of the other states leading up to and including Super Tuesday, he will be unbeatable after the first three. So what does this mean for the Establishment? Absolute and complete panic mode. With the Dump Trump and Stop Trump groups being formed from the left and the right, there is a full on attempt to stop Donald Trump from winning the nomination, and in typical fashion, the effort is a day late and a dollar short.
Both of these groups and the so called Conservatives in the latest National Reviewcolumn, have waited until the last possible second to unite and stop Donald Trump. Showing a completely futile and small minded effort to stop Trump, the Establishment are attempting to use Trump positions from his past as an example of why he isn’t a Conservative and that the Conservative movement shouldn’t support him. They have also gone as far as to insult the supporters of Donald Trump as being low information or uneducated and that it’s the main reason that Trump has such high poll numbers. They chalk it up to purely anger and frustration and think that his supporters have absolutely zero Conservative principles and support Trump purely for his celebrity.
Here is the fundamental problem with this argument. I always thought the Republican party wantedconverts? I thought they were interested in growing the party and converting people from liberal mindsets to Conservative positions? They have also had a strong desire to bring youth to a party of dinosaurs and Donald Trump is bringing in the younger generations, but they apparently don’t want it. You know what…it just hit me…they are “All talk and no action!” What a surprise, Donald Trump has been right all along. You see what is going on here? The Republican party and Establishment are playing right in to the hands of the argument that Donald Trump has been making for the last 7 months on the campaign trail. They say one thing and demonstrate another, much like they do in Congress.
