He's starting to transition from someone campaigning ultra right in the primaries to someone who has an interest in winning the general election. The good news is it gives credence to the idea that he's not as stupid and racist as he's shown while appealing to Republican primary voters. The bad news is that he's a political chameleon more than willing to do those things, an establishment outsider, and up against Hillary Clinton who may be in for a hell of a fight against Trump.
He's already sanding off the rough edges, moderating the tone, and focusing on economic populism. Watch out, people.— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) March 2, 2016
Prediction: Rather than reckon with how scary Trump's moderate pivot is, smug liberals will spend tomorrow retweeting Christie's face memes.— Emmett Rensin (@emmettrensin) March 2, 2016
My prediction: RNC goes all in for Trump by convention time, in October he calls for pot legalization, RNC swallows it, Trump wins 52-48— Adam Weinstein (@AdamWeinstein) February 26, 2016
"Anyone but Trump".... "Never Trump"... "Make Trump Drumpf again" (ugh....) and still he wins. Those campaigns probably help him in a way. The plot thickens.
