Right. The Tea Party was the protest vote, but they got co-opted. Now it is the Donald.

I don't ultimately see how a guy who latest claim to fame is going all around telling people "You're fired!" (ie throwing them out of their jobs...) is going to appeal to the socio-economic justice cohort of voters and get over 50% of votes...

I don't see how he can spin this to get 5% to 10% of this cohort to come over to the GOP with that track record... he may be able to come close but will end up with Romney like numbers in a general election..
