Unpopular Candidate?

They say Donald Trump is “one of the most unpopular candidates in memory.” Why then, does he keep winning primary after primary (whatever they call them), and draw the biggest crowds of any candidate, on either side? I think the Republican “establishment” is “whistling past the graveyard” in hopes enough people will believe that, so they'll vote for someone else. They keep saying he's “behind Hillary,” who is also unpopular, though we know why she is leading—the Democrats have it “fixed” so she will, no matter how many primaries Bernie wins. But to compare the two is like “apples and oranges.” She doesn't have the Democrat “establishment” against her. The Republicans don't want Trump because they won't be able to control him by withholding funds, and he has PROMISED to “upset many applecarts.” Whether or not he will be a good president is still to be answered. But he CAN'T be a worse president than Obama has been. There isn't such an animal! (Weekly Standard)
