Are you trying to get someone to pull the race card? I think that's what you're doing. So that you can accuse them of "pulling the race card" because I've seen a lot of trumpsters do this recently. But aha! Jokes on you, Trumps a person of color too! Orange. What do us libtards have against cheetohs?!!!
Not sure what race has to do with the points I brought up - perhaps you can elaborate. You're welcome to answer my question posed to seb though: do people like Donald Trump typically follow successful leaders who preceded them?
Actually it's usually simply a swing to the "opposite" to tell you the truth. The minority party gets fired up and roots for a 180 degree change in American politics. Whether that's the rational way to do things or not, it's a way of maintaining equilibrium. Unfortunately trump isn't even in the spectrum here. By the american definitions of liberalism and conservatism he is neither. He has no real political positions and where he does, the historic leaders he brings to mind are worrying at best.

I generally agree with the above which is why I'm asking: Do nations typically elect politicians outside the usual "norms" of politics following a very successful term of leadership?
