Regan crushclinton-scaredported the bombshell findings:

“The survey by Washington-based Mercury Analytics is a combination online questionnaire and “dial-test” of Trump’s first big campaign ad among 916 self-proclaimed “likely voters” (this video shows the ad and the dial test results). It took place primarily Wednesday and Thursday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.

Nearly 20 percent of likely Democratic voters say they’d cross sides and vote for Trump, while a small number, or 14 percent, of Republicans claim they’d vote for Clinton. When those groups were further broken down, a far higher percentage of the crossover Democrats contend they are “100 percent sure” of switching than the Republicans.”

Famously dubbed “Reagan Democrats,” these Americans were registered as Democrats, but became fed up with their party catering to the free-wheeling, sex-and-drugs hippie culture, and the lawless urban rioters in the 1960’s.

The “Reagan Democrats” eventually drifted from the Republican Party in the early 1990’s forming the core of Ross Perot’s candidacy – claiming 19% of the vote in 1992 – and costing George H. W. Bush the re-election.

Then when traditional values re-emerged as a cultural flash point, due to radical Democrats issuing homosexual marriage licenses in San Francisco and Massachusetts, these same voters turned out in 2004 to re-elect George W. Bush.

They sat at home in 2008 and 2012 when moderate Republicans like John McCain and Mitt Romney alienated conservative Americans with their moderate social stances and prior support for amnesty.

But, these voters are responding big time to Donald Trump’s campaign mantra.

When Mercury Analytics played Donald Trump’s TV ad to voters, showcasing his core message to defeat ISIS, build a wall to end illegal immigration, and temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States, the results were shocking.

U.S. News reports:

“When the firmed showed respondents the Trump ad, and assessed their responses to each moment of it, it found “the primary messages of Trump’s ad resonated more than Democratic elites would hope.”

About 25 percent of Democrats “agree completely” that it raises some good point, with an additional 19 percent agreeing at least “somewhat.”

Mercury CEO Ron Howard, a Democrat whose firm works for candidates in both parties and corporate clients, concedes, “We expected Trump’s first campaign spot to strongly appeal to Republican Trump supporters, with little impact – or in fact negative impact – on Democratic or independent voters.”

Reassembling the Reagan Democrats coalition – which dominated American politics between 1980 and 2004 – means winning by big numbers.

And Trump with his populist, pro-America message is the top choice for these voters.

Hillary Clinton, you should be terrified.
