Culture Wars/Current Controversies

Donald Trump is the least favorably viewed presidential candidate since at least 1992

This latest poll from Gallup is consistent with what one would expect given the prevailing demographic, generational, cultural, economic and partisan trends in the wider society, as this recent article by Peter Beinart indicates. Contrary to the hysteria of the Left, Donald Trump is not ushering in a fascist revolution in America. Instead, he is emerging as the candidate of a dying demographic that regards him as their last hope. Donald Trump resembles Ross Perot more closely than any previous presidential candidate, but his fans more closely resemble George Wallace supporters in 1968 who regarded him as their last hope to overturn the civil rights revolution. Sorry, folks, it ain’t gonna happen.
