Let’s think the unthinkable. Let’s imagine that Donald Trump actually manages to eke out a victory in November.
If that happens, it will mean I’ve been ridiculously wrong about him for months, but you can remind me of that later.
Could he actually implement the agenda he’s been promising his most ardent followers? I doubt it. So, a scary thought is… what happens THEN?
If there’s no wall across the border by 2019, how will his followers react? If Chinese and Indian programmers are still being hired at Apple and Dell in 2019, what then?
Up to now, Trump’s most ardent followers have shown a repulsive willingness to change their own stances on numerous issues to match Trump’s. But if Trump doesn’t deliver any of what they want (and I don’t think he can), will they continue to make excuses for him? Or are they going to explode?
