News that doesn't receive the necessary attention.

Polls show Republican voters are concerned about illegal immigration, the economy, and terrorism. Trump speaks of and shares their concerns while unabashedly saying it's time to 'Make America great again.' Voters know the US Chamber of Commerce isn't telling him what to do. It should be obvious why he's doing so well-Rush Limbaugh

"In Nevada, in this CNN poll, illegal immigration ranks third in this poll, behind the economy and terrorism in voters' concerns....October 3rd through the 10th, 67% think Trump best suited to deal with the economy....In South Carolina, 59% think Trump is best suited to deal with the economy."...

'Trumpsters'













"In the Trump news...he's shown to be surging now in early primary states, there is some polling data that has shocked...the Republican establishment....In fact, the Republican establishment is about to go insane by this. Trump was supposed to have been gone or on the way out by now....

And in this latest polling data, ladies and gentlemen, Donald Trump is doing even better with respondents in the polls on the economy than he is on immigration....What it really means is that the people in the polls are suggesting that Trump is far better than anybody on the Republican side to deal with the economy.

And it's not even close, and the numbers that Trump scores on best suited to deal with the economy dwarf his numbers on best suited to deal with immigration. And so...a lot of Republican establishment people are really scratching their heads today. They're depressed; they're getting angry. Their frustration is mounting, because none of this computes....

Now, the subject matter: The economy and immigration, illegal immigration. The two issues, I would like to assist those in the Republican establishment who are confused.... The two issues are inexorably linked....
...........
Even people who are employed fear losing their jobs. People who have money, fear losing it. There is fear, there is unsettledness, and it's all because of what's happening in Washington. And the economy and immigration are linked in the minds of people. That's why Trump is scoring so high on both of them....

In the latest CNN poll, Trump leads by 16 points in Nevada, and by 18 points in South Carolina. Trump is at 38% in Nevada, Ben Carson second with 22%. In South Carolina, Trump doubles the support Ben Carson has, 36% to 18%. No other candidate comes close to those top two, in either state, Nevada or South Carolina. The third place candidate in each case has less than 10%. And his approval on is best to handle numbers on the economy are through the roof.

They're even higher than the numbers he has on illegal immigration, and illegal immigration is the reason that he's at the top. Illegal immigration is the issue that dominates all others, and it is linked to the economy in the minds of the American people....

How can you not know, if you are in politics and your business is getting elected, and to get elected you must appeal to people, people who vote for you?...They're totally loyal to the donors....But the donors don't vote. You still have to appeal to people. You have to at least be able to make the case that you understand them....But they don't.

They don't understand the public attitude on immigration. They denigrate the public attitude on it. They don't understand the public attitude on the economy. They don't think it's particularly bad....And look where they live. Where they live, the economy's humming along....Everybody's doing wonderfully well. This is what puzzles me, this inability to understand what's going on all over the country, outside of the place that you live....

They think, for example, on illegal immigration, what's driving it is hatred and racism and bigotry and anger. They haven't the slightest idea that what's driving it's fear. People are scared. People are worried about the future of this country because they know things are not right.


People who are working and are doing okay, worry they're gonna get fired. They see layoffs happening all over the country. They see companies downsizing to part time and removing health care benefits....They worry about it happening to them, if it hasn't happened already. Then they turn on TV and all they hear is politicians talking about more giveaways to the illegals and more giveaways to people not working. People who have savings worry that it's gonna vanish or it's gonna be made worthless."...

[Ed. note: Meaning even more worthless than they were made by the Republican Establishment Bush administration financial crash. No one has even apologized to us or said what they'd do differently. They've been rewarded with jobs on Fox News as "experts."]

(continuing): "Barack Obama is not a president who believes in this country. He does not speak positively about it, does not talk about growth and expansion. It's the exact opposite, in fact. We're told, "Well, those good times in the past? We really didn't deserve those."...

People don't want that. The United States of America, we don't manage the decline. We stop the decline and we start growing. You plug Trump into all this and Trump's success makes perfect sense when you plug him into these circumstances that people inside the Beltway don't see....
 
"No, no. We can't do budget reconciliation. No, no, we can't. No, we can't stop the Iranian deal. No, no, we can't, because the independents and the moderates, we'll lose 'em!"...To stop Obama, to oppose Obama--is to engender and risk the Republicans winning the presidency in 2016....They look at Trump and they think Trump is guaranteeing a Democrat victory 'cause Trump's doing everything they think shouldn't be done.

Trump's out criticizing Democrats. He's speaking positively about America....He wants to...move on and "Make America Great Again." And inside the Beltway, they're scared to death over that kind of talk. Imagine that. How disconnected must you be to think that that kind of talk is going to lose you an election....

It just isn't right that 340 cities are sanctuary cities and illegal aliens can come here from anywhere in the world and have safe haven and be exempt from American law. That's not right. That should not be happening. There's no way that should happen. That the Democrat Party and the Republican establishment together are expanding welfare and food stamp benefits for illegal aliens and not closing the border and welcoming even more?...

All these institutions, traditions, all of these things that used to be reliable as backstops, reliable as uncorrupted, they all seem to be falling one after another. This creates a fear and a worry over a lack of confidence about the future of this country....We have a president who will not even properly identify terrorists as who they are and what they're doing and doesn't seem to be interested in stopping them....

So you throw Donald Trump into all this, and it makes perfect sense that he would be scoring as well as he is and doing as well as he is. And it's not just 'cause he's an outsider. All of this is rooted in substance....

In Nevada, in this CNN poll, illegal immigration ranks third in this poll, behind the economy and terrorism in voters' concerns. Both of these states are important early states, by the way. Nevada, South Carolina, they're big in the early-on process. In South Carolina, immigration is in fifth place in terms much voter concerns, behind the economy, foreign policy, terrorism, health care, then immigration....

Here's the number....Sixty-seven percent, this the CNN poll [in Nevada] October 3rd through the 10th, 67% think Trump best suited to deal with the economy. Next, Fiorina, 7%. And it goes down from there. Bush 6, Carson 6, Rubio 4, Cruz 2, Paul 3. In South Carolina, 59% think Trump is best suited to deal with the economy. Closest to him, Jeb, at 7%. And as I mentioned in Nevada when Republicans are asked what matters most to them, number one, the economy, 39%. Terrorism number two at 22%, illegal immigration third, 14%.

But look at, all these are linked. Illegal immigration is a huge factor in the economy, and terrorism is part of illegal immigration in terms of people's fears. These things, in my mind, they're really difficult to separate. South Carolina, as I mentioned, the economy, most important, 41%. Foreign policy next, 16%. Terrorism, 16%. Health care, 9%. Illegal immigration, 8%. South Carolina. So the establishment, their heads are spinning. "What, the economy, you're telling us that Trump is kicking everybody's rear end on the economy, too?"

This is the last thing that they thought would be the case....But there's something else that's driving the Trump candidacy or Trump success....

The Chamber of Commerce can't tell him what to do. Not a single donor can tell him what to do. Republican voters know full well that it makes no sense that the Republican Party is for illegal immigration. It makes no sense at all, until...they hear that Republican donors want that so they can have cheap labor.

What does the Republican establishment expect to happen? They think Republican voters are just gonna embrace candidates who seem to be running to implement the agenda of donors who have interests that are in direct contradiction to that of the people?"...Image above from RushLimbaugh.com

Trump gives us "permission to conceive of an American interest as a national interest separate from the “international community”"....

9/7/15, "Traitor to His Class," Julius Krein, Weekly Standard

"What Trump offers is permission to conceive of an American interest as a national interest separate from the “international community”....

Nothing is more terrifying to the elite than Trump’s embrace of a tangible American nationalism....The critical question, however, is not the source of Trump’s popularity but rather the reason his popularity is so shocking to our political culture....

Trump shows that what is most in demand...is not ideological purity but patriotic zeal....

Trump alone appears to understand that politics is more than policy and ideology."...

8/18/15, "Trump: Giving Voice to the American "Subconscious"," Diana West

"To say the Media-Political Complex has really lost its cool over Donald Trump, also every marble, is barest understatement....

Before Trump, the American "subconscious," circa 2015, would never "originally think" a US border was possible, let alone a wall; immigration restriction was possible, let alone a halt; immigration law enforcement was possible; the deportation of illegal families was possible; restoration of American citizenship as a privilege, not a stolen good, was possible; jobs for Americans were possible; and the rest. Donald Trump, bless him, has changed the American subconscious, giving voice to Americans long conditioned into silence by this same Media-Political Complex. And there is nothing, but nothing, they can do about it now."

Comment: Millions of Americans have been laughed at by the political class, particularly by the Bush crowd, for many years. Donald Trump apparently doesn't think this is right and is at a point in his life when he can do something about it.
