Just Because Trump Espouses Fascism, That Doesn't Make Him Wrong About Scott Walker

According to a new CNN poll, only a third of Republicans wish that Trump would quit the GOP race and he's the candidate most GOP voters say they want to see on the debate stage. 22% of Republicans say they think he'll be the eventual party nominee.

Among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents who are registered to vote, 52% say they want Trump to stay in the race for the party's nomination, while 33% hope that he drops out. Another 15% say they'd like to see him make an independent run for the presidency.

...The majority of those Republicans surveyed that wants Trump to remain in the race includes numbers of those seen as the core of the GOP primary electorate: 58% of white evangelicals, 58% of conservatives, and 57% of tea party supporters.


Not only is Trump still #1 in the national polls, he is leading in New Hampshire and coming in second in Iowa, after Scott Walker. Writing for Newsweek, Jeffrey Tucker makes the case-- without any kind of stretch at all-- that Trump is a fascist and his appeal to the Republican base isn't unlike the appeal Mussolini and Hitler made to conservatives in the 1930s. "I just heard Trump speak live," he wrote. "The speech lasted an hour, and my jaw was on the floor most of the time."

1. If the repukes are strategic and accept

that Hillary will likely win - Trump could be their trump card if he runs third party and brings out the base.. thus Repukes will win downstream races, my own theory here. No doubt they think Jeb is a winner as with Rmoney though.
