Mark Souder: No tsnami, but a Trump earthquake

FORT
WAYNE – An election tsunami can sweep away all before it. Off-year
elections of 1974, 1994 and 2010 had large numbers of House and Senate
incumbents being defeated as well as governors and state legislators who
were carried away in the wave.  Presidential elections seldom result in
such waves because the voter base is larger and the major parties’ core
voters more loyal.  This is especially true when the
nation is split almost 50-50 (or 25-25-25-25) on how to handle major
issues. Any massive losses will be because of a hole opening up in the
ground below, a Trumpian earthquake that sucks others down, rather than a
Clinton ideological tidal wave sweeping away all before it.  Part
of the increasingly small chance that Trump has to win remains, in
fact, because Clinton is not capable of generating a tsunami. Every time
she starts to talk about what she favors the government do, she reminds
conservatives why they fear a Clinton presidency.
