“A Sad Commentary of the Judgement of the American Conservative Voter”


Alicia Cohen writes in Jewish World Review:

Recently Ann Coulter tweeted that the Paris terror attacks had just elected Donald Trump as president. That is a sad commentary of the judgment of the American conservative voter. What Donald Trump is preaching is not that much different from what I’ve been writing about for the past 16 years but I am totally unqualified to be president and so is Donald Trump. If all one has to do to get elected is to shout what people want to hear than we are truly becoming an idiocracy.

All that is missing are the Greek columns for Trump to be a 2016 version of 2008 candidate Barack Obama. Only “hope” and “change” are being replaced by “loser” and “stupid.”

But unlike  candidate Obama, Trump is no juggernaut. His successful dispatch of three able governors in Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry and Scott Walker has not increased his lead. Nor has the predictable slide of an unprepared Ben Carson. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and to some extent, Chris Christie have been the beneficiaries.

RealClearPolitics finds Trump at 27.5 percent in its national poll. But that means 72.5 percent of republican voters are choosing someone else.

 

 

 

About Bob Sikes

A long time ago and a planet far, far away I was an athletic trainer for the New York Mets. I was blessed to be part of the now legendary 1986 World Series Championship. My late father told me that I'd one day be thankful I had that degree in teaching from Florida State University. He was right and I became twice blesses to become a teacher in the late 1990's. After dabbling with writing about the Mets and then politics, I settled on education.
