Say what you will about Trump, anybody who can raise the ire of the two major American political parties is catnip.
Here are his other pluses - five reasons as to why Trump could beat Clinton. (Most experts think she’ll probably beat him.)
1) With Donald’s anti-illegal-alien position, and his calling for a temporary ban on Muslims visiting or immigrating to America, all he needs is one major criminal/terrorist act from either group to separate him from politically-correct Hillary.
She, of course, is of the group and mindset who does not believe Islam has anything to do with ISIL, or with terrorism committed in the name of that religion. The latest outburst from the Religion of Peace is the bombings in Belgium that killed 31, while wounding 270 others.
She also thinks illegal aliens are A-OK in the USA. But she’ll have to defend horror stories like the one where four Guatemalan illegals are being held in Massachusetts, accused of gang rape. Sordid, preventable situations like this can only hurt Hillary and help Donald.
2) Hillary may end up facing criminal charges because of her email scandal. Hard to win when you’re heading for trial...
3) His main campaign theme “Make America Great Again” is a lot more compelling than her “Make America Whole Again.” (And let’s hope she means “whole” and not “hole.”)
4) Despite a lower official unemployment rate – which atrociously doesn’t take into account the millions of Americans who have given up looking for a job – most Americans are still feeling pinched in the wallet. Donald Trump has employed approximately 34,000 people in his various businesses. He has hands-on experience with creating jobs.
We know Hillary created at least one job. But, alas, the worker, Bryan Pagliano, to whom she allegedly paid $140,000 - so he could administer her private server for top secret State Department business - has been granted immunity from prosecution to spill the beans on her wayward ways. So she’s one and done (done in) in the employee stakes.
Thus, compared to Donald, her personnel decisions look abysmal. And Trump, don’t forget, has loads of successful executive management experience while Clinton has, um, Benghazi.
5) If Trump fights Hillary – he may win, lose, hard to say. As mentioned, most think she will win because she’s a woman, has a party behind her that is not fracturing like the GOP, has donors up the ying yang, and has the electoral “Obama coalition” to avail herself of.
If Trump campaigns hard against Hillary, harder against the Republican Party establishment, even harder against donors, and, yes, harder still against CNN, MSNBC, FOX etc, and “elites” generally – he just might win. Many “average” Americans, whether Democrat, Independent, or Republican, are fed up with their leaders in politics, business, and in the media. They just might get a real kick out of Donald taking on all comers despite his being tagged as sexist and racist.
Now, how can people ignore all these perceived blots (and others not mentioned here) on, and of, his person? Frankly, as his millions of voters prove to date, they don’t care what he “is” – as defined by his detractors - they care what he will do.
And note: if he fights all the top brass in society, he’d be the underdog – a good position to be in - for America does love its underdogs.
