Ivanka Signals Trump's Pivot to the Center

Ivanka Trump described herself as a millennial who doesn't always vote Republican but who knows she is voting for the Republican nominee this year. Her father is "color blind and gender neutral." No red-meat right wing rhetoric from her. 

 Ivanka gave the same vibe as did Thiel about the nominee: Trump is pivoting to the center politically for his campaign. In this sense, for a new type of candidate, Trump will be running for president in an old school way. Rather than focus only on turning out the base in red states, ala Karl Rove-like strategery, Trump will go after Independents and Democrats who haven't voted for a Republican nominee in a long while, if ever.
