Benen: "Thanks to persistent support from the Republicans’ far-right base, Trump is still flying high."
Meanie: "Remember, "The Donald" is a self-funded billionaire — just ask him, he’ll be happy to tell you what he is worth. He can hang around as long as he has significant support — right now he is the frontrunner — and he is willing to spend his money. "The Donald" is not going to go away any time soon."
Different analytical paths, but same conclusion. Trump is the GOP, at least the far-right activist branch.
