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.
Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
