Jennifer Rubin: Tapping 'Middle Class Angst' Key to GOP Nomination

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin argued that tapping into “middle class angst” would be the key to winning the Republican nomination for president in 2016 and that Jeb Bush would lose if he ran as an “elitist” on Wednesday’s “Laura Ingraham Show.”

While Rubin largely defended Bush’s record, she did say “any candidate, Jeb included…if he runs as some kind of elitist ‘I’m entitled to it,’ he runs as Hillary Clinton, I actually don’t think he’s going to get the nomination.”

She continued, “the candidates who are out there, who are governors and maybe one or two senators, who can tap into that middle class angst and say that ‘we are not the party of the rich guy’ is going to be the nominee.”
