What Voters See in Donald Trump:

"Trump's rise is not due to his supporters' anger at government. It is a gesture of contempt for government, for the men and women in Congress, the White House, the agencies. It is precisely because people have lost their awe for the presidency that they imagine Mr. Trump as a viable president. ...
Mr. Trump's supporters like that he doesn't in the least fear the press, doesn't get the dart-eyed, anxious look candidates get. He treats reporters with courtesy until he feels they're out of line, at which point he calls them stupid. They think he'll do that with Putin. His insult of John McCain didn't hurt him, and not because his supporters have any animus for Mr. McCain. They just saw it as more proof Mr. Trump will take the bark off anyone. ...
Trump's power is not name ID. He didn't make his name in this cycle or the last, he's been around 35 years. He's made an impression." — Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal
