New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait has penned an interesting piece, titled: “Why Liberals Should Support a Trump Republican Nomination.”

I’ll save you the time of reading it, and just tell you that he presents three arguments:

  1. Trump “would almost certainly lose” the General Election.
  2. Trump’s nomination “might upend his party” based on “how little he or his supporters seem to care about [conservative] anti-government ideology.”
  3. Lastly, if elected, Trump would govern like former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who, Chait reminds us, “compromised with Democrats on the budget, raising taxes and funding new public infrastructure.”

So there you have it. Chait is suggesting that liberals should like Trump because he would probably lose—or (even if he won)—he would govern like a liberal.

This is basically what conservatives have been saying about Trump for a long time now. But it seems to have more credibility coming from a liberal.
