15. Why on earth would he do that?

He's spent months building his "brand", that being a ultra-nationalistic proto-fascist that appeals to the raw, base emotions of white conservatives.

So far it's worked well for him (disturbing as it is). If he actually succeeds in getting the nomination (even more disturbing), it would have worked even better for him.

What you're telling me is that he'll immediately drop the base that got him to where he is, instantly alienating them, and somehow attempt to outflank a Clinton or Sanders nominee on the left?

And what person on the left would actually buy that, knowing what he's done up to this point? I certainly hope no one here's that stupid.

No, there's no way he does any of that. He might not be a true ideologue, but he's riding the message he's delivering up through the general election, if God forbid he gets that far.

And after that point, if--please God no--he actually wins, I don't think he'll think about right or left. I think he'll be obsessed about Donald Trump the Supreme Leader, and attempt to challenge anyone he sees as a threat to his divine power. It will be a clusterfuck like this country hasn't seen in decades, perhaps over a century, maybe not even ever.

He scares me like no one else. Yes, more than Cruz.
