The New GOP


Many #neverTrump'ers have made statements similar to this:

Trump’s various rants, by contrast, do not amount to policies. They are ignorant tone poems, bad haikus, streams of words whose content has no real meaning. They’re not positions available either to the GOP or Democrats, because they do not contain a vision of the future over which those parties can fight.
I disagree. Trump has policies, and those policies are what has propelled him to the Republican nomination. He wants to build a wall (restrict immigration), he wants to punish China and Mexico and Japan (restrict trade) and he wants to protect us from the Islamic State (restrict civil liberties). These position have resonated with the GOP voter.

So much ink has been spilled trying to identify who is responsible for Trump. Isn't that an easy one to answer? The Republican voter, of course.
