    Can you explain how Trump's stance on taxes and business regulations differ from any other mainstream Republican viewpoint? His adherence to typical Republican policies is almost certainly the only reason most Republicans in Congress refuse to condemn any awful thing he says.

    He was the one that was able to beat the democratic/globalist/MSM machine. That means something. Its something MItt couldn't do against Obama when he was clearly the better option.

    I think you're kidding yourself if you think Trump would have taken out Obama, though. Let's not pretend that winning a Presidential Election as a Republican is some impossible feat. He tapped into some segments of the population that others couldn't, and that's undeniably impressive, but I find it hard to believe that 4 years of governing like any other Republican would for matters of policy will allow him to hit that same nerve with "the forgotten man" he did last election. I think a 2020 challenger that tries to tap into a left-leaning Populist message and any ounce of charisma would be a death sentence in the next election.

    But Trump's election was fueled by racism and a massive white lash

    Trump is going to absolutely destroy anyone in the 2020 Republican primary if you think otherwise then you have no understanding of what trumps base is like

    Snark aside, I do think that at least helped in the primary. The Wall and banning Muslims were pretty clear defining characteristics of his message when contrasted with his Republican counterparts. I still think the overarching reason was him somehow tapping into a Populist message that resonated with many people, which still amazes me. I'm not even necessarily trying to suggest which direction the country itself needs to go, but I think if you hammer Trump on his policy record regarding that part of his 2016 message, there's a lot of political damage to be done.

    We could add misogyny in the general.

    Regardless his opponents name there was even a thread taken down on this board candidate "xyz is a cunt."

    I remember back in 08 and 12 and don't remember Obama is a ****** threads being taken down or even broached
    So yeah, white men threatened by women played a gigantic role

    and does to this day. Evidenced on parallel thread

    I think your understanding of what democracy actually is needs a refresher.
