On Tuesday night’s The Rachel Maddow Show, Rachel dug into the latest batch of poll numbers that show Donald Trump has not only retained his position as front-runner, he has actually widened his lead.
Rachel says the poll proves that ‘beltway common wisdom’ about Republican voters has been dead-wrong throughout Trump’s unlikely and unprecedented campaign:
“Let this be a stake in the heart of beltway common wisdom about Republican voters and what Republican voters think about and what they like in a candidate. Because we keep getting all these premature obituaries for Donald Trump’s status as the Republican party’s presidential frontrunner.”
Reading the tea leaves she also points out that Republican voters are likely to be unfazed–if not turned on by–whatever incendiary remark the Donald is likely to utter next:
“No matter what spectacularly offensive or even disgusting thing Donald Trump says next, Republican voters will like it. They will not mind, they will not punish him.”
