trump-hillIt’s an article of faith among establishment Republicans that only candidates who support amnesty and moderate their views on social issues are “electable.”

But a new poll out of the deep blue state destroys that narrative.

A KTSP/Survey USA poll out of Minnesota shows the Republican frontrunner leading Hillary Clinton 45-42 in a head to head matchup.

The same poll shows Trump leading Hilary 42-34 with the key block of independent voters.

The billionaire’s populist campaign themes appear to be the perfect foil for Hillary Clinton’s decades long culture of scandal and corruption.

In the explosive book Clinton Cash, author Peter Schweizer documents that while as Secretary of State, Hillary was a captive of special interests.

Companies could scratch her back by making a sizeable donation to the Clinton Global Initiative and she would repay the favor.

As the New York Times reports:

“…include a free-trade agreement in Colombia that benefited a major foundation donor’s natural resource investments in the South American nation, development projects in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake in 2010, and more than $1 million in payments to Mr. Clinton by a Canadian bank and major shareholder in the Keystone XL oil pipeline around the time the project was being debated in the State Department.”

Trump contrasts the pay for play Hillary Clinton brand with his self-funding campaign.

He boasts that because his net worth is in the billions, big money donors can’t buy him.

And the clearest example is amnesty.

Donor class Republicans like Paul Singer, who have endorsed the pro amnesty Marco Rubio, demand open borders.

They ply politicians with millions in campaign contributions to favor policies that allow cheap labor to flow across our border and drive down wages of working class Americans.

Trump is also flipping the conventional wisdom on its head with his lead over Hillary Clinton among 18-34 year old voters.

This poll also finds Trump with a 47-43 edge over Hillary with younger voters.

While establishment Republicans try to beat into the heads of conservatives that, in addition to supporting amnesty, the key to attracting millennial voters is abandoning the Republican party’s support for traditional values such as marriage and the pro-life movement.

But Donald Trump supports traditional marriage and he opposes abortion.

According to the pundits and old guard Republicans he should be toxic not only with blue state voters and millenials.

Yet Trump has defied the norms of politics this entire primary season.

His strong polling in the Republican primary and lead over Hillary in Minnesota proves that contrary to what establishment Republicans and their puppet masters in the donor class try to snow conservatives with, the GOP has lost recent Presidential elections not because of their principles, but because they nominated candidates insufficiently committed to them.
