Pat Buchanan sounds a warning:
There is that famed “blue wall” those 18 states and D.C with a combined 242 electoral votes, just 28 shy of victory, that have gone Democrat in every presidential election since 1988. The wall contains all of New England save New Hampshire; the Acela corridor (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland); plus, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois in the Middle West; and the Pacific coast of California, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii.
Half the nation now receives government benefits—in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, welfare, student loans, rent subsidies, school lunches and Earned Income Tax Credits, etc.
How can Republicans have any shot against the combination of the “Blue Wall” and the Democrats’ mother’s milk menu outlined above?
Mr. Buchanan strikes to the obvious: “The turnout at Trump rallies has been unlike anything seen in presidential primaries; and what’s more, the GOP turnout in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada set new records for the party.”
