Seemingly no topic in the history of mankind has captivated the political press quite like the rise of 2016 presidential candidate Donald J. Trump. This statement doesn’t even feel hyperbolic any more.
So with The Donald polling at the top of the list of GOP contenders in late summer, Aaron McIntire and myself return triumphantly to the airwaves and take a gander at what’s behind Trump-Mania.
I express my profound misgivings as to his meandering positions and his judgement, while Aaron helps me understand why he’s been so successful in appealing to so many GOP voters.
Then we move on to the state of the race. Has Jeb managed to endear himself any more to grassroots Conservatives? What about the dynasty argument? Why has Hillary been so remarkably fragile for such an unstoppable force of nature?
We also delve into the eternal argument of “electability”. Does Senator T Cruz have it? Senator Rubio? And will it be the final word on who emerges the victor?
