Trump Won with the Working Class Voters the GOP Forgot

Where did all the Trump voters come from, and where did the Cruz evangelicals go? One of the great mysteries of the 2016 primary is how so many assessments of the Republican electorate turned out to be wrong.

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Perry shared his perspective on how this campaign differs from his 2012 attempt, why he believes that his record stacks up favorably against any of his competitors, what he believes will be a major challenge for former Gov.

Blue State Blues: What if McCain Had Gone ‘Full Bibi’ on Obama in 2008?
