Here at the top of this post is the podcast of my conversation with Salena Zito about her important new book, “The Great Revolt: Inside the Populist Coalition Reshaping American Politics.” Her book is a must-read and I highly recommend it! Thanks, and I hope you enjoy the interview.

Standout syndicated columnist and CNN contributor Salena Zito, with veteran Republican strategist Brad Todd, reports across five swing states and over 27,000 miles to answer the pressing question: Was Donald Trump’s election a fluke or did it represent a fundamental shift in the electorate that will have repercussions–for Republicans and Democrats–for years to come.
The history of the American electorate is not a litany of flukes; instead it is a pattern of tectonic plate-grinding, punctuated by a landscape-altering earthquake every generation or so. Donald Trump’s electoral coalition is smashing both American political parties and its previously impenetrable political news media.The political experts called the 2016 election wrong and in the wake of the 2016 election surprise, the experts have continued to blow it – looking to predict the coming demise of the President without pausing to consider the durability of the trends and winds that swept him into office.
The Great Revolt delves deep into the minds and hearts of the voters the make up this coalition. What emerges is a group of citizens who cannot be described by terms like “angry,” “male,” “rural,” or the often-used “racist.” They span job descriptions, income brackets, education levels, and party allegiances. What unites them is their desire to be part of a movement larger than themselves that puts pragmatism before ideology, localism before globalism, and demands the respect it deserve from Washington.
Zito and Todd have traveled on over 27,000 miles of country roads to interview more than 300 Trump voters in 10 swing counties. What they have discovered is that these voters were hiding in plain sight–ignored by both parties, the media, and the political experts all at once, ready to unite into the movement that spawned the greatest upset in recent electoral history. Deeply rooted in the culture of these Midwestern swing states, Zito and Brad Todd reframe the discussion of the “Trump voter” to answer the question: What next?
Here is the first half hour or so of today’s Tammy Radio where Tammy gets into why Trump saying he’ll “wait and see” about accepting the election result was more than appropriate, why he is still freaking out the elites, and how, despite the insistence of the legacy media, this election is far from over.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Fox News Meteorologist Janice Dean about the blizzard conditions hitting the eastern seaboard this weekend. Washington, DC, Philadelphia and Baltimore will be hit hard, but the system will bring serious weather to what looks like the whole east coast. I spoke with Janice about where things stand now and what we can expect. For constant updates on this situation and all weather news you can follow Janice on Twitter @JaniceDean and stay in daily touch with her blog, the “Weather Front,” at Fox News.Read more 0 comments
I had the pleasure of speaking with our friend John Nolte of Breitbart.com about the phenomenon of Trump and various GOP consultants attacking not Trump but his supporter. We discuss why this is the tactic, the impact of Trump on the campaigns so far, what the conservative grassroots can expect, and how important immigration issues are to the future of the country.
John notes Trump is his 5th choice for president but he’s appalled at the attacks on his supporters. His main concern, he stresses, is the willingness of what he calls the ‘GOP Smart Set’ to malign 25% of the GOP base. His explanation of how this damages the whole of the conservative cause is valuable.
We all saw the same smear attacks and efforts to destroy Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign. It’s happening again, but now the establishment is faced with a man who cannot be financially ruined, and has enough resources and is well-known enough that he can, and has been, surviving the pathetic Shock and Awe efforts to destroy him.
No matter what you think of Trump, watching the system respond to him is a valuable reminder of how anyone from outside the establishment cabal is seen by the machine as presenting a dramatic threat to the status quo. Now why would that be? I’m also pleased with how Trump’s refusal to be politically correct is challenging the rest of the GOP field. All of that is a good thing, as we are learning more every day about who has the stuff to compete, who is being honest with us, and who can do well in the arena.
I hope you enjoy the interview and I look forward to you reading your comments.Read more 2 comments
