RUSH: Andy in Brooklyn. Glad you waited, sir. You’re next on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Thank you for taking my call, Rush.
RUSH: Yeah. You bet.
CALLER: I just wanted to say that for the last 30 years every election cycle the GOP leaves millions of conservative votes on the table, allowing the DNC to come in and just scoop them up. I call them the default Democrats. Now, this voting bloc is probably the biggest secret in politics because of where it comes from. And, Rush, it comes from union rank-and-file membership who are 50 to 60% conservative people.
Now, I’m not talking about the leaders. I’m not talking about the business agents. I’m not talking about any of the executive people. I’m talking about the guy who swings the hammer, the guy who fights the fire, the nurse, the teacher, these are staunch conservatives. And they are cowed into silence because of the fact that they’re a creature of the DNC.
RUSH: Okay, well, how does any candidate go attract ’em?
CALLER: Well, I believe, first off, that Trump is a destiny candidate and he’s the man and he’s got the credibility to actually extend an olive branch to this group. And I know this for a fact because the last 30 years he’s provided good paying union jobs for thousands of families in New York City, and I gotta tell you, Rush, I know, because I was one of them. I believe that a man like Trump could be the man who could finally end this destructive feud that has existed between organized labor and the GOP, because I’m telling you right now, it has done nothing but hurt both parties. And by bringing them together, I guarantee you, first off, this will decimate —
RUSH: Yeah. This is interesting. We have here, in many people’s view, we have a messiah. We have here a magician. That Donald Trump can heal wounds that have existed, festered, got puss coming out of ’em for decades. The amount of faith that people are placing in him, it’s interesting. I know that there are a lot of union employees, union workers that are not Democrats, and we know this because they’ve tried to avoid having to pay dues, because they know it all goes to the Democrat Party. Anyway, Andy, I appreciate the call.
