The Common Sense Trump Coalition – A Post Election Night Debrief With Florida as a Predictive Microcosm…

Candidate Donald Trump had an incredible set of victories on Super Tuesday 2.0 with victories in North Carolina, Illinois, Missouri and Florida.  Candidate Donald Trump has now effectively swept the south.

However, the results from Florida, especially Florida, provide an excellent example of the strength of Trump’s coalition and the scope of what’s possible in a general election.

Florida is a melting pot of regional migration from all corners of the U.S.   Indeed, there’s a joke in Florida about how there’s no real home-team sports because the residents are from everywhere else in America, cheering for their old home team.

A native Floridian is a scarce breed, that’s why they’ve historically been called “Florida Crackers“.  Named from the original Florida settlers who used whips to herd cattle and cut through the palmettos and bladed saw-grass, with a resounding “crack” from the knotted end.

Additionally if you were to overlay the size of Florida geographically on a map you’d find it would cover the entire U.S. eastern seaboard from Georgia all the way to New York city.  At over 800 miles tip to stem Florida is a massive state with transplanted residents from all of the other states within the continental republic.

Florida also has massive demographic diversity, with large numbers of Latino and Hispanic residents located in dense pockets throughout the state.  The largest Puerto Rican population in the entire U.S. live in Orange County near Disney World along the I-4 corridor.

This is why the results from last night are so incredible as they relate to the absolute dominance of Donald Trump.

Trump won everywhere.

If you will accept an apology for painting with a broad brush we’ll explain.

The Northwest panhandle is regionally very similar to southern SEC states.   The people living in the North Florida panhandle hold very analogous ideological outlooks to “southerners” in a general sense.  Trump won those easily.

florida regionsThe North Central coastal area is very similar to areas in the U.S. where you find high concentrations of military installations and military bases.  Trump won those easily.

The North East region of Florida is analogous to the demographics within the Tri-State area of the upper North East (Philly, New Jersey, New York).  Trump won those easily.

The East Central region of Florida holds similarity to the Missouri and Gateway area of the U.S. Again, totally dominated by Trump.

The South East region of Florida, the “Space Coast” from Port St Lucie north to Cape Canaveral and Daytona (East Central) is very similar to the Mid-Atlantic region of the Eastern coast of the U.S.  Yup, Trump easily won.

The Southern region of Florida is very similar to the upper North Eastern U.S. with the exception of cultural diversity enhanced by high Cuban populations.  However, if you back out the Latino population you’ll find a similar ideological worldview to what Senator Cruz described as “New York Values”.

Also in the far Southern region (Florida Keys) you’ll find great similarity to the Southern California socially liberal, libertarian, outlooks.  Excluding the Cuban (Miami-Dade) voter specifically, who went heavily for Marco Rubio, you’ll see Donald Trump easily won these cultural demographics.

In the South Western Florida Region, you’ll find a mix of very high income (Naples – Collier County on the coast) which is similar to Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Hampshire and the well off areas of the North East U.S., and a working class Florida resident slightly inland.   This entire region was easily won by Trump.

florida regionsIn the West Central Florida Region you’ll find a blend of Mid-west (Ohio, Indiana, Michigan) types.

Port Charlotte and Charlotte county have a high population of residents from Ohio. Again – Trump won easily.

The Pinellas and Hillsborough county area of Florida (Tampa, St-Pete) begins the Western side of the I-4 corridor and holds a culturally diverse blend of Latino’s and Hispanics, along with middle-class and upper income demographics.  Trump won.

Starting in the Gulf of Mexico (Tampa) and headed east, the I-4 Corridor.  I-4 driving East toward Daytona and the East FL coast, you find Disney (Orange County) in the center.  Polk county is also on this corridor and is a commercial and industrial hub of commerce for transport/delivery to Southern Florida.  Just below the I-4 corridor is the citrus industry.  In all of these regional demographics, and high population centers, Trump won.

In the southern central (Glades and Hendry counties) you’ll find mostly farm operations, row crops.  These two counties also have very high Hispanic demographics.  Trump won both counties easily with huge margins.

Why is this so important?

trump smile 3Because Florida is a microcosm of the entire U.S.

All of these population centers are inhabited by clusters of people who are transplants from the Southern, North East, Mid-Atlantic, Mid-West, Upper Mid-West and even Western U.S.  And in each of these areas with very regional-centric outlooks you find Donald Trump won by stunning margins.

This reality is exactly opposite from the media narrative.

In essence, when you pull back from the micro-look from Trump’s strength in Florida – what you will find is the macro-look overlay fits almost identically with the regional perspectives of the larger U.S. nationally.    This reality portends a remarkable strength for candidate Donald Trump with a very broad-based appeal.

If Trump can win such a resounding cross-cultural victory in Florida, he is well positioned to do the exact same thing on a national scale in a general election.

Lastly, here’s our little happy feet ‘we-told-ya-so’ on the Latino/Hispanic demographics.[Please note -there is a big cultural difference between Latino and Hispanic and they don’t like to be conflated]  Notice how Trump won with Latino’s and Hispanic populations throughout Florida (sans the Cuban patriotic vote for Rubio in Miami-Dade).

The Latino/Hispanic vote should be particularly noted in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Glades, Hendry, Polk and Orange counties.  As the residents themselves have continually reminded everyone: these are not monolithic groups – they are as culturally diverse as the fabric of the U.S. itself.

    Our new world … ordered will consist of of 3 Domains, inspired by the 5 great religions, guided by the 7 schools of wisdom and sealed hermetically from change by by the 11 truths which produces conflicts and rogue actors. After several more layers of primes the necessary pressure will be produced by the sheer weight of the 1 people and the righteous layers of primes on those who would be disenters, manipulators, media jesters and the lost souls in need of recirculation through God’s great machine of humanity… with Liberty and Justice and Rule of Law for ALL.

    I have included 1 as a The prime representing One people and One purpose to see truth and avoid war.

    I left out the number 2 because it’s the ONLY even prime number making all other even numbers divisible by 2.

    Number 2 is an evil number which balkanizes and sets one against one like childless marriages and political parties.

    I will name my new project Pyramids and Prime numbers in honor of Exters Pyramid and my educational background.

        I have to think that Trump knows these numbers and has a plan to appeal to those people who traditionally vote Democrat. I find that his message, being that it is nationalist and populist, can gain more traction as time goes on during the GE.

        I watched HRC speak last night; her personality is so dry and unappealing. She is truly a bad candidate. She is always negative; her message is negative. Negative messages have little resonance because it drains the ears that hear it for a prolonged period of time.

        I feel that Americans are still attracted to the American spirit of exceptionalism. Because it is the spirit of can-do and go-get-it that makes America unique. And though there may be so many that would rather get hand outs and thrive in the grievance industry the libs set up by muzzling Us with the PC culture, so many more see and hear that tenacious spirit come out and be evident in Trump and his message.

        I am hopeful more will be persuaded by Trump than trapped by HRC. I pray. I hope.

    There is another reason that more on the left will switch over to Trump – he is a great communicator of conservative values like local school control, smarter money management – doing more with less.

    Today, David Horowitz’s Front Page Magazine published an article by a former leftist.

    The Mind of the Left From an Insider
    What I witnessed inside a faith of lies — and what it took to leave.

    “It is actually very hard to give up being a leftist, even when you want to. I know people whose families have been murdered by communists and they are still leftists. It is not enough to see the problems. If you are a red-diaper baby, it’s all you know. You have been indoctrinated (with the media’s help) that the so-called Right is greedy and evil and the religious are hypocritical and delusional. Even if you have doubts, there is nowhere else to go, not without literally changing your mind.”

      Yet another indicator that the real fight will take place at the convention. A fight which, in all likelihood, will see the end of the republican party.

      There it is, for all to see: “We choose the nominee, not the voters!” According to the imperious GOP establishment, we don’t have a say in our nominee. Which begs the question…

      So why bother with a primary election in the first place?

      Answer: this republican primary season–the entire thing–has been ‘theater’; a ruse; a masquerade, designed to make republican voters think they have a say in their government. If Trump hadn’t gotten in, there would be zero enthusiasm and Bush would be well on his way to their pre-planned ‘brokered convention’, where all the also-ran candidates would have seen to it that their delegates supported Bush in the end. (Remember how he said he’d get elected without a majority?)

      The scope of Mr. Trump’s accomplishments can not be overstated. Before all is said and done, his dominance will expose the entire GOP sausage factory–a tremendous public service in itself, because what we see of it already is enough to make us puke.

      I’m proudly standing with Donald J. Trump!

  16. In the past I never gave much thought about how the delegate system worked. After doing some research I found that the delegate process is a much more shady business than I had imagined, and of course Ted Cruz couldn’t wait to hunt for delegates working as double agents.

    “On Saturday morning, while the candidates were scattered across Ohio and Florida, Illinois and Missouri, Cruz’s campaign was back in Iowa trying to wring another victory out of the state that gave him the first win of the primary season. After Iowa Republicans caucused on Feb. 1, diehards who stuck around their precinct got the chance to elect a local delegate to the county convention. It was those 1,681 precinct delegates who attended conventions in each of Iowa’s 99 counties this weekend, where they selected from among themselves the delegates to subsequent conventions at congressional-district and state levels. Cruz’s victory awarded him eight of the state’s 30 delegates—Trump and Rubio each got seven—but his campaign saw that as a beginning rather than an end.”

    “In many states, primaries and caucuses are just the most public face-off in a multi-step process to select the individual delegates who will choose the party’s nominee. Only a small share of the 2,472 total convention delegates are free to pick the candidate of their choice, regardless of the election’s outcome, on the first ballot, while about three-quarters of them are gradually freed to do so on subsequent votes. That means there is a small pool of so-called unbound delegates who are pure free agents, but a much larger number who can be recruited throughout the spring as double agents—delegates who arrive in Cleveland pledged to Trump, all the while working in cahoots with one of his opponents and confessing their true allegiances once it is safe to do so.”

        The Mormons, now calling themselves LDS, have long had a serious agenda for political power, financial prosperity and the presidency. (Especially Romneys and Glenn Beck). Maybe it’s because Joseph Smith, the founder actually tried to run for president, despite being run out of towns and territories because of his banking scams, fraud, philandering, and strange religious claims. Mormonism that Smith and his friends concocted is a confabulation of Mohammedanism, Masonry and Judeo-Christianity, which can be seen in the symbols and rituals of the sect. It came out of the Burned Over district, a very religious section of upstate NY…after the Great Disappointment of 1832.

        Smith was killed in jail by an irate group of townspeople, but his followers seem to try to prove, vindicate his life, achieve his goals and further his beliefs. They have a White Horse Prophecy that a Mormon will someday save the US when the Constitution is hanging by a thread.

    Rubio’s Release-

    I thought Rubio gave a pretty good speech last night. It occurred to me that if he had campaigned the same way, he would have done better.

    Then it dawned on me. He wasn’t giving a ‘donor speech’ last night. He had been released. The weight of all that money, all those advisers, all the handlers- gone. He could just speak for himself. In a nutshell, that’s the difference between Trump and everybody else- from Clinton on up.

    Trump is not shackled by the expectations and ‘guidance’ of the money-men, the political know-it-alls. He is free to speak his mind and free be himself and free to lead a dysfunctional government where it needs to go.

    “Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose.”

Had YOU invested over $100 MILLION in someone, for whatever reason let alone a political one, would YOU let them go “free”? You mean, YOU would not then force them to do something for you to “pay it back”? Yes, I know mine is a rhetorical question, just wanted to see your response.

    I figure Trump is on a glide path to 1137 delegates without any trouble. That’s even figuring that he doesn’t win CA outright and their 172 delegates. Also, leaving room in other proportional and winner-take-all states.

    I did a screenshot of my grid that I doctored from RealClearPolitics site but I can’t seem to attach it here for your feelings. Anyway, I feel that Trump staying away from the FOX “take-down” debate in Utah is a smart move. Kasich is no player, so why waste time with him. Now, Trump needs to really hone in on Lyin’ Ted and expose this POS and his globalist elite wife for what they really are.

    I hope more and more wake up to the tactics of our once favorite “Conservative” radio talk show people like Rush and Levin, along with all the other strategies our deceitful politicians use. They use a very clever, effective tactic of giving you many truths about liberals, the “Establishment” (of which they’re really members of themselves), so called “behind the scenes” info and then when they get your trust, they weasel in the lying PR stuff – as we’ve seen big time this cycle — Levin and Rush, others shilling loudly for Cruz, sometimes Rubio – saying they’re “real” Conservatives, etc. They also know when it becomes a habit, it’s really hard to break. Levin seems to also use his talent of being on the offensive all the time, yelling angrily, which makes many listeners think he must be right then. All I know to do is keep spreading the truth as much as possible while we can. Looks like many now know and are ignoring the “old money” deceitful ads, PR media, etc.

    This is “our” time now with all the info on the internet, social media, etc. If we don’t start shutting them down now, we’ll be goners.
    They’re so panicky now in these unprecedented conditions, they’re showing their true colors. That’s all good news.

    Thank you Sundance, this is a great analysis.

    I had no idea of how diverse and dynamic the state of Florida is. It makes sense to see this victory as a microcosm for the whole nation. I am especially impressed with his showing and appeal to the Hispanic/Latino community.

    Trump’s common sense economic message resonates with every head of household, and every college graduate looking to start a career, and with every individual participating in the economy as suppliers and consumers.

    Florida is a great victory for Our Candidate.

    I also find that NC, IL, MO are also great victories. Last night on CNN they showed a map of MO and the counties that are decisively “evangelical” which Trump won compared to the more urban counties, where LyingTed won. How unusual that looked, but a victory is a victory. Evangelicals don’t like liars!

    David Axelrod is not our friend, but I think even he grows impatient with the Amanda Carpenter/Ana Navarro minimizing of Trump’s success so far. Last night, on CNN, he said that both Cruz and Kasich are factional candidates. He said only Trump is appealing to a wide variety of the Republican electorate.

    The problem is this group or pockets of conservatives in the #NeverTrump movement who probably backed Rubio but are now refusing to support Trump no matter what. Bill Kristol, National Review, Our Principles PAC, and conservative writers and more neoconservative intellectuals are vowing NEVER to support Trump. They will run third party or contest the primary results at the convention – if he’s the nominee. Are they willing to accept Cruz? That’s the big question. If not, they’re REALLY defying the will of the people because 70% or more of the party is supporting either Trump or Cruz so far. Jim Geraghty of National Review this morning said that there was no compromise. Trump is just a bridge too far. I believe most of the National Review people are supporting Cruz though.

    It would be interesting to get some research on the money, the tactics and the strategy going forward of the #NeverTrump folks. Tim Miller, former Bush communications guy, and now Our Principles PAC communications guy, is saying Our Principles will continue to go after Donald Trump. I would say that a good tactic for our side is to go after them and question their real motives. Obviously, Tim Miller was supporting Bush. Who does he support now? Katie Packer, who runs Our Principles PAC, supported Rubio. Now who does she support? Who are they actually FOR?

    It’s also obvious that the #NeverTrump people were behind the brouhaha over Michelle Fields victimhood pose and how terrible Corey Lewandowski is. I think Michelle Fields is lying. I wasn’t sure at first, but the more recent video clearly shows nothing happened. And how was she bruised through the jacket that she was wearing? Anyway, their reaction to Trump having Corey on stage with him last night was pretty funny.

Simply enforcing the existing laws, Hillary, will unemploy all those illegal aliens. Simply enforcing the existing laws, Hillary, will build that 60 ft. wall on the border. Simply passing a surcharge on all extra-national Western Union / electronic remittances $25 billion to Mexico this year, (more than their oil revenues) pays for the wall.
