Change election? Maybe not. Establishment winning their races.

    I keep hearing from Trump supporters how this is such a "change election" but if that is true, why are people like John McCain, Marco Rubio, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz winning their 2016 elections? It can't be because their opposition is horrible in every single case. So why are these establishment types winning their primaries if "the people want change"?

    To me that says maybe they don't want change after all. I imagine that Bernie supporters are especially unhappy with DWS winning.

    That would make a great sign to take to a Trump rally. :D

    Because even in the most anti-establishment election years, the reelection rate is still about 92%.

    Rallies? Just walk down the street with it. Or take to a sports game. Would still apply. :D

    Really? Ugh. I did not know that. People should stop complaining about congress then I guess.
