Silent Voters Can Still Speak...

Silent voters can still speak.

Give them a reason to vote.

See what happens then.


Why has Mr. Trump continued to do quite well in his run for the Republican Party's nomination to run as their candidate in 2016?

President Donald J. Trump?

I think he may succeed, and here is why: popular recordings make money, not because some people detest them, but because those who really like them go out and spend their money to buy them.

What does that have to do with Campaign 2016?

Simply this: people who look askance at Mr. Trump will not vote for him and will give their attention elsewhere; but people who like what they hear, will make it a point to go out and support him at the polls.

There is a large enough body of disaffected voters who for a long time have not heard anyone saying what they want to listen to. If they now hear someone finally saying what they have wanted to hear, those potential voters may finally become actual voters.

They won't vote for Hillary, simply because they never have. She isn't exactly something new this time around. Mr. Trump is. Mr. Obama was "something new" in 2008, when Hillary wasn't. As much as she is trying to reinvent herself, she is definitely not something new this time around either.

The disaffection in America runs deep. Campaign 2016 is not about "politics as usual." If Mr. Trump has a consistent theme so far, it is that "expecting the same political phonies to get us out of the mess that they themselves got us into, is like expecting a dog to suddenly start acting like a cat!"

That resonates, and there are enough potential votes from the no longer quite so silent, majority of disaffected non-voters, that, if stirred up and drawn back to the polls next November, Mr.Trump (as their voice) can win.

Time will tell, but those voices are certainly a part of why politically correct, non-offensive politicians such as Jeb Bush, have been so confounded by "offensive" Donald Trump's staying power in this year's polling for next year's Republican nomination.

      Trump is a big boob with hair that looks like he has an orange cat laying on his head. Eventually people have to see that.
