Donald Trump May Pay a Price For Using the GOP Primary to Use Politics

Donald Trump’s quest to do well in the GOP Primary polls comes with a cost: Even if Donald Trump does the unthinkable and wins the GOP nomination, he is likely to have paid a price in the fight to earn the support of conservatives and rank-and-file Republicans. If that price is not paid by voters in the primaries, they will just vote for whomever they believe will beat Hillary Clinton in the general election. While many will be willing to play hard ball to prevent a President Hillary Clinton, there is a tendency for the Party to take a lukewarm approach.

The fallout from Trump’s critique of establishment politics and a defection from the right of the Party could be a distraction for many Republicans, even those that would otherwise be supportive of Trump. Some might also be quick to see the lessons from many of the elections of the past and the Democratic Party has lost control of the issues and the Party. There will be some lessons to be learned in a Hillary Clinton Administration, and it would be difficult to avoid them, but let’s remember that this is a primary battle and not the general election.

How can Trump take all of this in stride, especially with the reality that the Party needs to win more than anything else? He should focus on keeping his party together in order to win the general election. The polls show that Donald Trump is trying hard to be liked and to build bridges to the Party. There is no reason for him to be overly concerned with damage control, but should his attacks continue, it will be the end of his campaign.

If the Party is going to allow itself to be used as a platform for Donald Trump to use to attack the Democrats, then he is going to have to do more than send out and attack the most powerful adversary in the Party. Let us be clear: There is a lot of very good things that the Trump campaign is trying to do to reach out to the GOP. But that has to be complemented by a strategy and organization. It has to be more than marketing and empty rhetoric.

Trump must treat the party with respect and provide direction. Trump’s detractors within the Party will not make it easy for him to do this, but it has to be done. Otherwise, Trump will be stuck with the charge that he is destroying the Party, and it will make it impossible for him to build the Party he promised.

He must remain in control and make sure the Party is not being overrun. Trump can take a fairly firm stance on immigration but do not bemoan the fact that the Republicans are losing the Hispanic vote. He can work hard on limiting access to citizenship for illegal aliens. And this is all going to be on the campaign trail, not behind closed doors.

We can’t forget that this is a very large campaign with a large effort involved. Trump will not get to the White House overnight. He has to win the nomination and it is going to take some very focused organization and execution on the ground. And of course, this all involves leading a faction that is torn between his direction and the direction that his GOP opponents are taking.

How can the Party get itself together in this fight and to follow his lead? Is it possible that even the most devoted members of the Republican Party could be swayed away from Trump’s support? To get a handle on this question, we have to look at who is in charge of the Party at this time.

As President Barack Obama heads off to farewell, the Party will be left with the painful task of balancing what seems to be the best of the Obama era with the future of the country. Obama promised hope and change, and as his presidency ends, that promise will have to be delivered. But how can a President who began his campaign as a citizen of change — and was elected to change a nation — do so when the idea of trying to take the nation back seems to be a distant dream?

The Democrats will put forward an agenda based on promises of change and for someone to vote for; Donald Trump has promised the hope and change. And it looks as if that hope and change is about to come to America.
