Indiana Defies Lind

Good results; congratulations to the good people of Indiana.

Indiana has all the characteristics of a Cruz/Kasich state, and yet supported Trump. The good people of Indiana should be congratulated for their defiance of the Lind trend, thus doing the right thing. Indianans therefore prove themselves superior to Wisconsinans, Minnesotans, or Iowans.

It would be interesting to discern the reasons for Indiana’s good sense, which perhaps could be politically applied to other areas of the Midwest.

Of course, if Trump really is going to be the nominee, he had better perform in November. If he crashes and burns. right-wing populism can be set back. It would have been better of course to have the same policies and forceful approach applied by a candidate who is not an ignorant buffoon. But it is what it is.
