CHARLIE MITCHELL: There’s only one issue in the presidential election

Discontent is the driving force in this election. If boorishness and tax returns mattered, Donald Trump would have been toast long before now….

…Americans who consider themselves aware and informed fail because they try to use logic and reason to understand Trump’s appeal.

Looking at the math, it appears that Trump will go the way of McDaniel and Mourdock.

Establishment America might take note, though. The age-old yardsticks of experience, competence, maturity, charisma and ideology have not been useful in this election cycle.

And don’t expect the ruffians at the gate to be silent as their vision of what America should be becomes more and more obscure.
