The Brexit vote shows how Donald Trump will win the US presidency, writes James Hohmann this morning in the Washington Post. He contends that the mood is the same in the US as in the UK, where polls couldn't gauge the depth of the anger people feel toward elites. Elites like Hilary Clinton, who, I'll add, along with the rest of the political establishment have sold us down the river for Neoliberalism.
Along with that, because of that, anti immigrant sentiment and isolationism are increasing, Hohmann adds. Here are his reasons for why Trump will win:
1. Resentment of elites
4. Flawed polling
As to complacency, I've written before that Clinton is making a mistake by making the campaign about Donald Trump. She'll be giving voters no reason to vote for her. She's hasn't projected a vision, to speak of, and she's constitutionally incapable of backing the kind of policies that would interest the Sanders supporters she'd need to win. Furthermore, she wants worldwide warfare and voters want none at all.
I'd add that during the primaries Trump was underestimated from the very beginning right up until the minute he destroyed the last of the 16 establishment GOP candidates who started the race with him.
And just think of the thousands of people who won't be blown to bits if Hillary Clinton isn't the commander in chief of the massive US military.
