Response to ismnotwasm (Original post)

7. Throwing so many groups and individuals "under the bus" seems to be a foolish strategy ...

... for any candidate (or candidate's supporters) who actually believe they have a chance at winning the nomination.

I mean... think about it... what if you miraculously WIN the nomination? Would you still have the enthusiastic support of all those groups and individuals during the general election? Or would you have to waste time and money trying to "court" them for their affections again?

So... are they making a strategic mistake? Or, in spite of their aggressive rhetoric, do they actually believe they don't have a chance at winning the nomination?

Note to Jury: No candidate or candidate's supporters were insulted or smeared in this post. These are my observations and opinions only. My questions are with regard to the wisdom of the strategy of making "enemies" (so to speak) of groups and individuals that may be needed at a later time. Questions like this are legitimate, and fair, and not against the rules.
