    That’s because people are tired of the “same old”!
    The natives are restless and therefore unpredictable.

      Why do you think Trump is leading the polls right now? It’s not because he is a brilliant politician. He’s a moderate who appeals to the angry vote on both sides of the aisle. Hillary and Sanders are so far left that he’s probably drawing a larger than normal group of center-left democrats. And the Republican “leadership” has been embarrassing. Boehner and McConnell should lose their positions.

        Shawn, I think your astute analysis captures part of his appeal. The other part is his mocking of the PC thought police. He has tapped into a deep CONTEMPT much of the public has for our feckless, overreaching federal government.
