When he's saying the most extreme things possible on the campaign trail, I see next to no support for him from the left (and from a lot of people on the right). But looking at his stances in the past, he sides with Democrats on a bunch of issues. So, if he hasn't changed his mind on those issues, I could see him actually supporting the Dems on stuff like healthcare or abortion (he's flip-flopped on this, but it might be a thing for the primaries). Of course, he'd then lose all support from the right.

Because he's not a conservative, certainly not what latter-day Republicans call "conservative", but he's not what any other country would call a leftist either.

Classic third-way populism: in essence, social support, but only for the right sort of people.

... this is my signature!
