It is time for us to get out of these ridiculous endless wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home.
While not identified as such by the pollster, those words were spoken by President Donald J. Trump. 55 per cent of identified Democrats can agree with Trump on a major and--if one were to judge from the MSM and Congressional resolutions--"controversial" component of his foreign policy. One which he has held to from the the early days of his campaign. In reality, judging from the polling results, this is not a controversial position at all. It reflects Mainstream American opinion.
Questions: Could results like this signify, as commenter Cassander has speculated, that a major political realignment in America could be on the horizon? How long can the DC political Establishment--Dem and GOP alike--continue to buck the growing popular consensus? How long can they kowtow to the Deep State status quo, without risking serious backlash? To what other issues does this divide extend? Trump appears to be the only candidate who has identified some of these divides in the American political landscape and has the wit to take advantage of them to forge a new and, seemingly, enduring coalition--again, judging from GOP respondents, Trump is wildly popular. Does the Establishment really dare impeach?
