Demos Make or Break for Clinton while Repubs Trumped in Nevada and South Carolina

For Hilary Clinton and her establishment Democrats, the 20th of February Nevada Caucus becomes a roll of the dice, a gamble that did not have to happen which put the 27th of February South Carolina Primary in double jeopardy. Clinton could have softened her Democratic National Committee approved Wall Street hawkish stance over the past month, to gain some of the lost ground from Bernie Sanders, quite like something Barack Obama would do against Hilary in 2008, after leading so far ahead then falling behind, turn policy around to pick up where he was losing, but she does seem determine to go all Frank Sinatra and do it her way all the way against Bernie. Now with the race being one between only Clinton and Sanders before Super Tuesday March the 1st, she feels by both being a minority as a woman and thus also more supportive of other minorities, whether racial, sexual orientation, or some other diverse category, Hilary hoped she will be able to start gaining trust of the first time voter by earning their support, though all of the above may be supporting Bernie now, she will still be supporting them, and will in the end work together.

Republicans, especially the establishment, again remain in a different boat made by a shipyard of similar branding.

As Donald Trump begins to broaden out his political base to be more friendly to backroom players of the party, thus expanding his exclusive brand of grassroots support to a more generic one palatable for the Beltway, moving slowly from Phase One to Phase Two of his three phased built to live in campaign like any good real estate investor and builder would do. Both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, like most favoured traditional politicians, are still out in the lost fog of trying hard to speak to all the issues while splitting the same established party vote, instead of simply focussing on the main three being economic recovery, job opportunity, and trade liberalism to get America back to work, pay back its national debt, and then make it great again, instead complicating the whole exercise by diversifying into defense of religious freedom, repeal of Obamacare and reform of health care, and the Second Amendment to bear arms. Going into the 20th of February South Carolina Primary and 23rd of February Nevada Caucus, likely only one of Jeb Bush, John Kasich, or Ben Carson will survive to Super Tuesday March the 1st as each will need more than just double digits in public polling for the chance or they will slowly limp to gimp, all three need to win enough delegate support to move into second past Cruz or Rubio, or if they should falter Trump himself, however chances become slimmer for those of whom gain endorsement from governors and leadership in both states seen by its voter as Repubs in name only politicians for Wall Street donors, fundraisers, and operatives who believe in pure luck, entitlement, politics and not Main Street taxpayers, supporters, and patriots who believe in hard work, success, and business.
