    I do not understand why so many think Trump is attacking the party. Actually, the party seems to like him, the RNC elites are the ones on the attack.

    Sixteen candidates for the Republican nomination (so far). If math were not a heinous sin, that would mean the average candidate has 6¼% of the Republican primary voters who consider that candidate their first choice.


    Mr Trump is the first choice of 1/4 of all those potential primary voters, giving him a commanding plurality. Of course, once the field is winnowed down from 16 to three…

    Trump is a Ross Perot wannabe.

    Trump represents the opinions of a partisan segment of society, that chooses to accept a package deal (not unlike a cable bundle). Trump echoes populist conservative emotional responses to opinion propaganda. This is an unfortunate by-product of our winner-take-all political system and the entrenched 2 party oligarchy which represent not the majority, but 2 extreme views rather than the moderate superposition of these ideologies that the founders had hoped for and ends up with the voters having to select the least harmful extremist rather than the most productive moderate candidates.

    Excellent article, JDave, thanks for the link. She hit all the salient points.

    If you count “everyone running for president but Ted Cruz and 80% of those Republicans in congress or state government” as the “Republican elite,” I guess you could say that it’s only those people whom Trump is attacking and who are upset that he’s doing so well. I’m waiting until the Republican base finds out what it is, actually, that Trump plans to do when in office.

    I think everybody’s waiting to find that out. Including Trump!

    I suppose you could say “Republicans holding office” instead of “elites”, means much the same I’d think. As for the other candidates, of course they attack each other as well as Democrats, that’s the job they signed in for when they started a run.

    Trump is used to speaking his mind. The average RepublCon is used to speaking the Fox Rush Noise Team’s mind. Note the difference, you parrots in the audience. The Trumpet has actual WEALTH to show for his mouthing off, not a list of talking points updated daily in the Ailes Noise Team’s back room.
