RUSH: We have a “smart people” montage here. Drive-Bys, experts, Republican establishment elites all saying Trump would never win, predicting a Hillary landslide. This is a series of bites November 15th, 2015, through October 2016.
TIM MILLER: (8/18/16) Trump is gonna get killed in the general election.
ALEX CONANT: (8/18/16) Trump is gonna suffer an embarrassing loss this fall.
RACHEL MADDOW: (7/29/16) Unless this election happens on Mars, Donald Trump will lose.
KARL ROVE: (11/2015) Republicans are not going to win this next election.

JEB BUSH: (12/15/15) You’re not going to be able to insult your way to the presidency.
RYAN LIZZA: (8/17/16) Trump is on his way to lose in the biggest loss since 1984.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: (05/ 2016) I don’t see how he can win.
BARACK OBAMA: (2/16/16) I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be President.
RUSH: That’s Barack Obama. We had in there Dr. Krauthammer, we have Bill Kristol, we have Mike Murphy and a leading consultant on the Republican side, Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC, Dana Perino, David Axelrod, Lindsey Graham, George Ramos, Ryan Lizza, Jeb Bush, Rachel Maddow, Karl Rove, Mark Cuban, all the smart people, and they were all predicting a Trump landslide loss.
Not I. See, these are the college-educated smart people, and they knew that people like them would never, ever, vote for Trump. And what they’re gonna say is, people that didn’t go to college that voted for him, “We don’t have to listen to this. I mean, we don’t want to turn our country over to the idiots. The idiots voted Trump; we’re not gonna succumb to that.” And that’s their attitude today.
Here’s James Carville, NBC special coverage last night. F. Chuck Todd, who has admitted they need to open a bureau in Racine, Wisconsin, to find out what Wisconsin people actually think about things. F. Chuck said, “James, there will be a lot of Democrats who are gonna complain about WikiLeaks, complain about James Comey, had some impact, but, on the other hand, Donald Trump’s basic message never changed, James.”
CARVILLE: You gotta realize the Democratic Party had the least amount of power that you can imagine in this democracy. The Republicans have like 30 state legislatures, governors. We’re gonna lose the federal courts, the Senate, the House, the presidency. I mean, it is a utter disaster if you’re a Democrat in terms of having any political power in the country right now.
RUSH: How about that? Is that not stunning? So just on the basis of what — these are the guys that have been running the country for eight years, implementing all this stuff the American people didn’t want, the majority didn’t want. And now all of a sudden, “The Republicans have 30 state legislatures, governors, we’re gonna lose the Fed, federal courts, the Senate, the House, the presidency, I mean, it’s an utter disaster.” It’s an utter disaster for the Democrat Party. Yes siree, Bob. It’s exactly what it is.
RUSH: This is Ginger in Tucson. Welcome. Great to have you here. Hi.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. Well, the purpose of my call is to hopefully make you look good. But my comment is about how the supposedly uneducated blue-collar workers have voted for Trump. And I say hardworking, commonsense, blue-collar Americans have never sat in front of William Ayers, and they haven’t been brainwashed like the Millennials have. And when you send your kids to school, whether it’s kindergarten through college, it’s a risk. And I’m glad that commonsense America came out and voted.
RUSH: This is actually awe very brilliant point. You are very, very shrewd. What she’s saying here — and, by the way, it’s white-collar uneducated that we’re talking about. Blue-collar is union in terms of the lexicon. What we’re talking about —
RUSH: — the Democrat Party openly — I’ll never forget this — a former Washington Post columnist, it was in November, 2011, was working for the Obama campaign, actually wrote a piece how the Democrats are abandoning white working-class people and had made the decision to focus on all the different minorities. And it’s come home to roost now. And you’re right, there is a prejudice against them because they, quote, unquote, are uneducated.
Look, the bias here is incredible, but your point about the fact they are uneducated means they’re unbrainwashed. It means they haven’t been fed a bunch of poison by the likes of Howard Zinn, who owns the history education in public schools, and Bill Ayers. In other words, they haven’t come under the spell of the liberal indoctrination and propaganda that is the public school system today and, as such, they’re actually commonsense smarter than people that come out with a formal education. That’s your theory, right?
CALLER: Well, and just because somebody doesn’t have a college education, I mean, some of the smartest people in the world don’t have college educations. They’re the most commonsense, down-to-earth types of people, and they’re what makes our country great. And I mean, I myself have an education, but, you know what? I’m the same — you know, I was lucky because I didn’t go to school during the time that the kids were indoctrinated.
CALLER: And, fortunately, I have two daughters that have, you know, obviously I raised them right and I taught them about politics, and they haven’t —
RUSH: I know. This is why we write the Rush Revere history books for young people, to counter what they’re learning there.
