(National Sentinel) Conventionally Unconventional: When he first declared his intention to run for the presidency as a Republican, the party elders (the establishment) laughed Donald Trump off as a carnival act and sideshow, as did the majority of Democrats.
And even after he began picking off the 16 additional Republican presidential contenders one by one, a core group of GOP voters and commentators simply refused to get aboard the Trump Train.
“He’s not a real Republican,” they said.
“He’s no conservative,” others added.
To shore up his conservative bona fides ahead of the election, candidate Trump released a list of constitutionalist judges he would use as his pool of potential Supreme Court justices (which he’s now selected from twice).
He talked up conservative issues and pledged to pursue conservative policies on taxes, guns, and border security.
But because he’s not a conventional Republican or conventional politician POTUS Trump still could not convince some lifelong Republican voters to support him.
The tide is changing.
During a rally in Tampa, Fla., last week, Fox News spoke to one man who has changed his allegiance and now says he is considering voting for POTUS Trump in 2020.
Per The Blaze:
The unidentified man told Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins that he didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 because he didn’t think Trump would be “a good Republican.” But Trump has done a lot to change his mind since.
“I was worried he wouldn’t be a good Republican and, honestly, he’s changed my mind a lot,” the man said.
“The best thing he’s done in my opinion is the tax cuts and the Supreme Court pick, and if he keeps doing a good job, I will — so I didn’t vote for anybody in this very last election, but this time around I probably will vote for him,” he explained.
"I was worried he wouldn't be a good Republican and, honestly, he's changed my mind a lot."

Indeed, as the economy continues to reach new horizons, in addition to the prospect of placing two very conservative justices on the Supreme Court, many conservatives and Republicans who did not vote for Trump in 2016 will have a much tougher time ignoring Trump’s accomplishments when they step into the voting booth in 2020.
And let’s not forget how much the lunatic Democratic Party is helping recruit new Republican and Trump supporters via the #WalkAway movement, and how more minorities are beginning to get aboard the Trump Train as he improves their lives as well.
