Trump's South Carolina win was impressive
I got tire of scrolling.
Politico shows the results of each county in South Carolina, my state of residence from 1985 to 1992.
It goes on and on and on.
Donald Trump not only won the geography, he won the demography:
Evangelical Christians: Trump
Born-again Christians: Trump
Conservative Voters: Trump
Moderate Voters: Trump
Young Voters: Trump
Old Voters: Trump
First-time Voters: Trump
High School Grads: Trump
College Grads: Trump
It goes on and on and on like Journey song.
Granted, there are demographic/psychographic groups Trump did not win, but very view. Rubio did better among post-grad folks. Cruz did better among people very conservative voters. But the breadth of Trump’s win is staggering. And he did the same thing in New Hampshire. He won all the major demographics and almost all the counties.
Donald Trump has now won New Hampshire and South Carolina by double digits. His chances of winning the nomination are above 80 percent, probably closer to 90 percent.
It’s time for Republicans and Republican-leaners to start dealing with the probability that Donald J. Trump will be the party’s standard-bearer in 2016.
Since 1996, ordinary Americans have warned the political and corporate elites not to ignore their plight. But the elites didn’t listen.
