Whether many want to acknowledge this truth or not, pundits, king makers and ordinary voting registered Republican Americans who stand against Trump are throwing temper tantrums because their favored fringe candidate did not become popular.

In truth, they are angry at themselves. And like all who are angry, they are displacing their anger against all of the smarter Americans who backed Trump.

They are mad at themselves because their way is not the popular way. Rather than acknowledge this truth, they lash out against those who do not believe as they do. And of course, they lash out at who they believe is the cause of their misfortune — Donald Trump.

That is the problem from which those at the National Review suffer. It is the problem from which permanent, unproductive struggle group agitator Bill Kristol suffers.

They never bother to look at themselves. They would never acknowledge the truth about their faulty beliefs, foolish beliefs about future Utopias that would never come even if they were to have gotten their ways.

One candidate stands above all of the fringe candidates because that candidate is a normal American with normal American beliefs. He thinks and acts like most Americans. 

The difference between that candidate and all other Americans is his drive, his ambition. Most Americans can look in the mirror and recognize in themselves the truth that they lack the drive, the ambition of Donald Trump. For this reason, they can respect Trump.

In A BRILLIANT LADY AND WHY DONALD TRUMP IS MOST POPULAR WITH AMERICANS, which I wrote back in October of 2015, I revealed why Trump is popular and why Trump would be the mainstream American candidate — Trump has firm conviction. 

The professional politicians, all of whom are fringe candidates, seek to compromise and weasel their ways through life. That is not an American trait. Americans do not like compromising weasels.

Trump strives to win. Playing to win is a mainstream American trait.

Most of mankind are quite capable of snap judgement over anyone's character. Americans are no different in this regard. The majority have judged the others to be who they are — fringe candidates with out-there, dangerous ideas that could endanger the lives of Americans and destroy the American way.

When you look at the following list, quickly what comes to mind is how much so on the fringe each of these candidates are. Their beliefs are out-there. Their views are far from reality and the norm of behavior for normal Americans.

Each one is freaky and flawed.
