I’ve had hundreds of conversations over the last few months leading up to today’s election. Most of my talks have been with like minded folks. They don’t like all of the things Trump has said, but they can’t believe the things Hillary has done. It has been a bruising campaign season. And it has taken someone like Trump to pull the curtain back on, not only Hillary, but on the entire broken political system.
In one of the many conversations I had yesterday, I was asked what are Trump’s chances of winning. I said I’ve read the low “probabilities” put out by guys like Nate Silver, but in my gut, I felt, and still feel that Trump is going to pull it off. He replied, “You know, I feel exactly the same. We left Colorado on Oct 15, went east across Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana and Florida, have seen thousands of Trump yard signs, zero Clinton!!! But, have not been in the huge cities where all the handouts are!!”
It doesn’t seem fair that voters with no skin in the game get to cancel out the voters that provide the money to allow the game to be played.
This redistribution of your money cannot go on forever. It will stop. We just don’t know when. But one thing is for sure, as another client reminded me, the Party of Trump is not going away. The Party of Trump will be a third party or something to that effect. The Party of Trump will not be brought back into the GOP tent. That tent has collapsed on the likes of Paul Ryan. No future race will be the same. And that’s a great, great thing. Thank you Mr. Trump.
