The Consequence of Trump

It is very simple. As Donald Trump becomes the face of the Republican establishment, Barack Obama’s approval ratings go higher. As Barack Obama’s approval ratings go higher, it increases the likelihood that most Americans vote for the status quo, which is a Clinton victory.

Trump is not the face the GOP should have if it wants to attract new voters. All he does is make President Obama look like a refreshing change of pace.
