Looking back over past Presidential elections I have to say again that the Trump phenomenon is nothing else like I have ever seen and that includes the 1980 Ronald Reagan “revolution”. Reagan was the expression of love of country and a belief in American ideals. Trump on the other hand, while having heavy elements of patriotism in his following, is NOT a campaign of love, but of a furious and wrathful anger that he has managed to focus like a 9-year-old with a magnifying glass over an ant hill, and American voters are loving it.
To say ‘this time is different’ would be a grotesque understatement.
Hillary attracts a crowd of between 200-300 in a high school gymnasium somewhere in Iowa while Trump packs in 7,000+ with an additional few thousand standing in the rain for over three hours, and STAYED (in the rain) for an additional hour to just hear his speech, while standing outside. Did I mention they did this in the rain? Yeah, it sure is different this time.
Donald Trump’s speech was disrupted a few times by BLM troublemakers who were immediately shouted down and physically thrown out of the venue, all to the cheers of the audience, and with the end result of their tantrums being only a more invigorated and determined crowd.
Yeah, this time is very different with White Republican women the angriest of all demographics. This is all uncharted territory for everybody.
