I think it's "Bacon's Rebellion" (1676) all over again.
He's rich and powerful. He's anti-establishment. Poor and middle class people support him because they think he'll help them economically and because he wants to take the offensive against "enemies" on our frontiers: Latino immigrants, Moslems in the Middle East and Chinese business partners. If he's elected, we'll probably get the wars and walls, but I doubt we'll see anything to help the People.
