Validation

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.
