You got it all wrong. Trump isn’t where he is because he’s a human sphincter. It’s true that what passes for a right wing today likes to get together and hold circle jerks where they all repeat their mindless mantras because no one else believes them anymore, but there’s more to it than that.
Trump is where he is because he’s the only Republican candidate who didn’t go shopping around the billionaires looking for a sugar daddy to finance him before he even started to campaign. Somehow, people seem to know that this means that, no matter what they say, none of the clowns in the Republican clown car would actually represent them after the election. If you doubt this, remember that the runner-up, Ted Cruz, ran against exactly that process, and the only reason why Bernie Sanders, who also campaigned against big donors, didn’t wind up with the Democratic nomination was ELECTION FRAUD.
If not for this, Trump wouldn’t have even rated as another clown in the clown car.
You have vastly underestimated the influence of money in politics, AND the popular distaste for it. It’s enough to put a loser like Trump in high places, and almost enough to take down a loser like Clinton.
