If you want to understand why Trump’s campaign has been completely immune to failings that would have destroyed any other politician and rendered them the political equivalent of a superfund site, all you need to do is look at the above chart. This isn’t employment numbers as percentages, but employment numbers as totals reported by the St. Louis Federal Reserve, https://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/LNU02073413#, https://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/LNU02073395# .
There’s three big things this chart tells you. First for American citizens working in this country there has been ZERO actual job growth since may of 2007. The second is there has been large growth in imported guest labor. This is not including off the books unreported illegal immigrant labor. The third big thing is that there has been a 700,000 job loss in citizen employment in August
With people all around the country worried about losing their jobs and being replaced by either legal or illegal immigrants, is it any surprise that they don’t care if Trump knows who the secretary of state of anywherebuthereistan is ? If he is offensive to reporters ? If he is just plain offensive ? NO, he is talking about issues that actually matter to them, not quiz show trivia.
If the actual conservatives wont to stop the Trump juggernaut, they are going to have to steal a march on him on the immigration issue and start hitting other issues that actually matter to the voters.
