Thread Name: BS: Trump
Subject: RE: BS: Trump
The strategy of running to the right to gain the GOP nomination and swinging back to the center in the general election, as most GOP candidates do, probably won't work for Trump. He's taken such extreme views to solidify his core constituency, poorly educated white males, that any pretense of moderation or softening of his demagoguery will alienate that large but stagnant voting block, who are not enthusiastic voters to begin with. Even with this triangulation he won't get much traction with Democrats considering the platform of racism and intolerance that he presently espouses. I can see the Super PAC TV ads now with Trump railing against Mexicans and Muslims, proposing the murder of terrorist's families and enhanced torture. He's painted himself into a corner and the RNC knows this and are currently searching for ways to circumvent the democratic process, a process they show little respect for.
