I wrote yesterday that the whole premise of the Bush candidacy — he loves Mexicans, they love him — doesn’t add up. politically. So this morning David Byler and the esteemed Sean Trende put a piece out on Real Clear Politics that says essentially the same thing. Here’s the link:
Hispanics are not the key to 2016. If blacks revert to their pre-Obama levels of turnout, a small increase in the working class white vote in Middle America would be enough for a win. Right now a lot of these folks are supporting Trump. They aren’t Bush types. What will appeal to them is one of their own.
Like, maybe, a mailman’s son from McKee’s Rock, Pennsylvania.
