Mr. Trump has in the past expressed many liberal views and backed many democrat candidates. Needless to say he is far from a proven and confirmed conservative.
It’s no secret that the current front runner for the nomination in the republican presidential primary has a questionable past when it comes to party affiliation. It is said he has switched parties a few times seeming to side with whichever serves his own self interest. It’s also no secret that Mr. Trump has in the past expressed many liberal views and backed many democrat candidates. Needless to say he is far from a proven and confirmed conservative. He has in the past and even now praised the virtues of socialized medicine. He has talked on the stump about how horrible Obamacare is and said he will repeal and replace it. Replace it with what? What he described in an interview this morning sounds a lot like universal health care.
We could go on and on about Mr. Trumps past and present views that make him as comfortable as a democrat as they do republican. Why not? He is Trump and he can sell whatever he wants to sell. People will buy it. Despite a lot of evidence to the contrary a lot of people think he’s conservative. He sounds conservative…….sometimes…….most of the time……..not very often but he says he is so he must be.
One thing Trump isn’t afraid to talk about is the trouble Hillary Clinton is in. The news just keeps getting worse for her by the day. Her email scandal may very well at least take her out of the race. Hillary being eliminated from the race would leave an already thin democrat bench nearly empty. Already people are floating out the idea of Joe Biden running because Bernie Sanders has little chance of taking on any republican.
What better opportunity for someone else that has been campaigning for months and already developed a very devoted following from both sides of the isle to enter the race. Although polling well Trump still knows that the republican nomination is nowhere near a lock. He could enter the anemic democrat field and dominate without breaking a sweat if Hillary were not in the mix. He just has to say what they want to hear. He would even bring a portion of his republican following with him. What better position to be in during a general election than to have bashed republican candidates for months during their primary as well as take a portion of the votes from who would be their front runner.
I don’t know if it would be possible or if Trump would even try it but given this election cycle and the unpredictability of Trump would it be that far fetched? Particularly if he doesn’t win in Iowa. There is one thing you can be sure to expect in 2016. That’s the unexpected.
