There isn’t a question that Donald Trump has touched a nerve when it comes to the disgust with which the average American views our politicians. After all, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is now ‘America’s biggest welfare recipient.’ But by and large, Americans realize that you can’t lead a nation when you publicly, and viciously insult its population–at least not in a Democratic one.

When it comes to Trump’s chances of winning the 2016 presidential election, fivethirtyeight.com, the well-known site for predicting the odds of future outcomes, recently predicted that Donald Trump has about an 20% chance of winning, compared to Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning, which are 80%

Of course, no one can predict the future, but when you insult your voters to the level that Donald Trump has done so, you had better have a back-up plan and Trump is no dummy, he has Trump News Network sitting comfortably in his back pocket.
