Trump's chances of accomplishing that are better now that he has shown he is not just a single faction candidate.He has come in first in nominating contests in three very different states: New Hampshire, where more than a quarter of voters described themselves as "moderates;" in South Carolina, where three quarters of voters were evangelical Christians; and Nevada, where 15 percent of voters were "non whites," the highest proportion of minorities to date in the Republican primaries.It is this well of discontent that Trump has tapped more successfully than any of his predecessors.The polls also indicate that among Hispanic voters, who accounted for eight percent of the Republicans voting in Nevada, 46 percent voted for Trump.Trump may have further room to grow because he is not ideologically fixed. Covington believes this ideological flexibility may in the end make a president Trump more acceptable to the Republican establishment than Ted Cruz, a stubborn champion of the ideological right who is detested by most of his colleagues in Congress.
