I wish to congratulate President-Elect Donald J Trump. He ran a remarkable campaign. One that neither we on the right, nor the establishment republicans, nor the dems thought was possible.
What no one counted on was the unwavering support for Trump. It did seem that no matter what he did, his ever-expanding flock never wavered. This is something neither we on the right, and certainly the left, ever counted on, or ever really understood. But someone did.
And that someone is Salena Zito at the Atlantic.com. – who has also written for the Weekly Standard and is board member of the Center for Media and Public Policy at the Heritage Foundation.
What everyone appeared to have missed, Ms. Zito figured out back in September, which, in my opinion, why he prevailed.
In Zito’s article entitled, “Taking Trump Seriously, Not Literally,” she writes of an appearance and speech by Trump at a Shale Insight Conference. She pointed observed that,“The 70-year-old Republican nominee took his time walking from the green room toward the stage. He stopped to chat with the waiters, service workers, police officers, and other convention staffers facilitating the event. There were no selfies, no glad-handing for votes, no trailing television cameras. Out of view of the press, Trump warmly greets everyone he sees, asks how they are, and, when he can, asks for their names and what they do.”
