On the one hand, there’s nothing better than low information Fox News voters arguing with each other (over, of all things, Donald Trump).

On the other hand, these people are from my home state of New Hampshire. (Thank God I don’t know any of them).


I’m still not too worried about Donald Trump. ¬†Because I’ve seen this movie before:

The American public is sick and tired of politics as usual. They’re angry at Congress and angry at the president. You can almost feel it out on the campaign trail. That’s why _______ is getting so much support. He’s different. He doesn’t represent politics as usual. He taps into that anger.

We heard this about Herman Cain (and a cast of thousands of others) in 2012, Rudy Giuliani in 2008, Howard Dean in 2004, John McCain in 2000, Pat Buchanan in 1996, Ross Perot and Jerry Brown in 1992, Gary Hart in 1984, John Anderson in 1980, etc. etc.

Do you notice how many of these folks won their party’s nomination?
