Huckabee On How Trump Can And Will Beat Hillary Clinton

Now that Ted Cruz has been vanquished from the 2016 presidential race and it looks like Donald Trump is going to secure the Republican nomination for president, attention is turning to the general election and can he beat Hillary Clinton.  Some time ago, Dilbert creator Scott Adams, a man with a long history in persuasion, said he thought not only would Trump win, but it would be in a landslide of Reagan-esque proportions.  Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, this week said that with a Trump nomination, all 50 states will be in play.  (When was the last time the Democrats had to defend California? This is NOT a good thing for Hillary.) After the Indiana primary, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee added his voice to the growing chorus of cold thinkers who believe that Donald Trump has much better than a “good” chance to actually win the office of the presidency.

Hillary is predictable.  If ever there were true words about the 2016 presidential election season, those are. She is predictable all right.  And, no, no one could call Trump’s campaign predictable – or traditional – in the least.  Yes, he went the blunt, brash and bold route, but that is what the people in the pit, the vulgarians, the everyday sorts, respect.  Trump knows that.  He also knows, and will prove that the “purists” can’t get anything accomplished that has any meaning on a large scale, that the social moralists and purists don’t negotiate, which unfortunately is the way things actually get done.

In the end, “Make America Great Again” is a form of “Get ‘er done” or “Just Do It,” spoken sentiments of the American psyche if there ever were any.  We are doers, not talkers, and the people currently in government are talkers who go out of their way not to do what is best for the country.  People like Mike Huckabee recognize that, and see that the antidote to the current morale funk the nation is in, is someone who can practically and pragmatically look at the nation and say, “We are going to do this.” It speaks to the American people at the spirit level…and probably why there are indications that the Hillary camp is not exactly happy with this turn of events.
