Breitbart (if you can get past the autoplay adware kludge):
A Morning Consult poll, released Friday, surveyed 504 registered voters who watched Wednesday’s Republican primary debate and has only good news for Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina. While the poll’s sample size is small (with a 4.4% margin of error), the poll’s trend is worth noting.
In this same poll, prior to Wednesday night’s debate, Trump sat at 33% support. Dr. Ben Carson sat in second place with 17% support. Today Trump enjoys 36% support. Carson is still in second place but with just 12% support.
Trump’s lead increased from +16 points to +24%. That’s an +8% jump.
The Ace of Spades guys (whom I generally respect and mostly like) keep on insisting it’s over for Trump. The grasshopper seems to lie heavy on this one, too.
Now, I’m sure y’all are probably as sick of reading about Trump as I am of writing about him. So I want to clearly explain why I think this is so important. Let me start by quoting Vox Day’s take on all this:
Both Fiorina and Carson are no-hope non-candidates. The fact that both of them have more appeal than the Walker, Rubio, Cruz, Christie, Bush III et al suffices to demonstrate how little faith the grassroots has in the Establishment.
It’s pretty simple. Both American and European politics are about IMMIGRATION, IMMIGRATION, and IMMIGRATION. If you don’t support immediately repatriating ALL illegal immigrants as a STARTING POINT, you’re just not an electable candidate anymore.
That’s not precisely true. Immigration is an epiphenomenon. It’s actually even simpler than that:
The Elite are offering us two choices. We can be either
1) passive consumers on the company tit, spending our rapidly decreasing wages on iCrap made by smaller, browner, poorer people, or
2) smaller, browner, poorer people.
That’s it. It’s not — despite all the howling on the alt-right — anti-white animus; it’s just the logic of the bottom line. If present trends continue, our imported lumpen-Aztecs will themselves be replaced, soon enough, by lumpen-Africans. You do know there’s 1.3 billion more of them in the pipeline, right?
Karl Marx was right, y’all. This is where laissez-faire leads; there can be no other.
You-Know-Who, who knew his Marx, saw all this. And the Chinese, who definitely know their Marx, see it as well. There’s a reason they seem content to remain a regional hegemon, despite their economy going kerflooey — by 2050, the life of a peasant in Shandong will seem unimaginably luxurious compared to the life of a peasant in San Francisco. And the People’s Liberation Army knows a thing or two about managing recalcitrant populations.
Trump — a businessman — is simply following that logic where it leads.
It remains an open question, of course, how much of this is conscious. You-Know-Who didn’t have much of a coherent platform, either. He simply made a statement that seemed all too obvious to millions of his countrymen: Whether you’re a barely-making-it clerk in a Jewish bank in Berlin, or a prole pulling a shift in People’s Heavy Tractor Manufactory #202 in Krasnoyarsk, you are not you — you are a production-unit, a consumption-unit, a cell in a vast spreadsheet that, if present trends continue, will soon cover the whole earth. Your fears and desires, your hopes and dreams, your gods, your traditions, your ancestors, your descendants… all meaningless. You are a cog, and you will do as you’re told, or you will be scrapped — because that’s what one does with defective cogs.
And that’s why I called this piece “If Loving This is Wrong, I Don’t Wanna Be Right.” Because You-Know-Who also had a huge, tightly organized Party, with several massive paramilitary formations at his beck and call. He had Party members salted throughout the civil service, the police, the army. And because of this, he had massive leverage — at least one Weimar chancellor was assured that, unless the far right* was brought into the governming coalition, a civil war would break out… which the army simply didn’t have the manpower to stop.
What I’m getting at is this: Trump, with his half-assed, off-the-cuff, ridiculous clown show candidacy, may well be the best alternative on offer. “Vote me, and be Americans again” isn’t going away. If Trump doesn’t ride that slogan to the White House, it’s going to become the slogan of a large, tightly organized Party, with several massive paramilitary formations at its beck and call. Thanks to President Jebillary’s open door policies, that party won’t have an outright majority… but You-Know-Who’s never did either. And not everyone at the Pentagon is a drooling imbecile — at some point, some bright young staff officer is going to advise President Jebillary that, in the increasingly likely event of shots fired, we’re not going to have enough loyal troops to stop it.
Not that the clown show presidency would be any fun, either. Some bad shit is coming down the road, and we passed the turnoff a long time ago. Our choice isn’t between better or worse flavors of Business as Usual; it’s between Bad and Much, Much Worse.
Me? I’m voting for Bad. And it seems like more and more people are joining me.
*not that You-Know-Who was a conservative, of course, but for convenience I’m using the term the history books use. That way, if you want to check my work, you won’t constantly be tripping over references to the National Socialists as “right-wing.”
