GOP nominee Donald J. Trump is doing something that none of his predecessors in modern political history have managed to do: actually expand the Republican “big tent” with voters who have not traditionally supported the party.

The #NeverTrump crowd is running out of steam — and time.
All of its attacks — that he’s as liberal as Hillary Clinton, anti-immigrant, or a con man who will say anything to be elected — have failed. But perhaps the most absurd criticism of the Trump Deniers is the argument that he would hurt Republicans “down ticket.” In fact, the opposite is true.
We’ve seen this movie before. In 1980, the Washington Establishment raised the same chorus against Ronald Reagan, who was accused of being a reactionary and a divisive drag on the whole GOP ticket. But Reagan led the GOP to the biggest U.S. Senate swing since 1958, picking up 12 seats and giving Republicans control of that body, to the shock of the Establishment.

Donald Trump:”They’re scum! They’re horrible people. They are so illegitimate. They are just terrible people.”
“The press has a lower approval rating than Congress,” he said at a morning rally in Atkinson, N.H.
“They’re scum,” Trump said. “They’re horrible people. They are so illegitimate. They are just terrible people.”
“Some of the people in the press are honorable,” the New York business mogul added. “But you’ve got 50 percent who are terrible people.”
Trump then argued the only group he dislikes more than the media are the career politicians in Washington, D.C.
“The other thing I’ve learned is how stupid our politicians are,” he said.
