Two Words

Two words for:

Supporters of Donald Trump: Huey Long

Supporters of Ted Cruz: Barry Goldwater

Supporters of Bernie Sanders: George McGovern

Supporters of Hillary Clinton: Adlai Stevenson

Supporters of Marco Rubio: Richard Nixon (c. 1960)

Supporters of John Kasich: Bob Dole

That’s not predictive as much as it is a warning. In the heat of the race, especially with a long primary season and a longer runway before it, it is very easy to lose sight of the electorate in toto. Any of these candidates could well endanger their chances in the general election by playing too much to their respective choirs.
