Base of the Republican Party and “the Donald”

Paul Krugman notes that there is a disconnect between the wealthy donors backing Jeb Bush and the common Republicans, many of which back Donald Trump and agree with him.

And to be fair, there is a similar schism, albeit not as strong, between those backing Bernie Sanders and those backing Hillary Clinton. However, the non-elite Democratic base is more diverse than the non-elite Republican base, and she remains the heavy favorite to win the nomination. And yes, the Presidential race might well be closer than it was in 2012.
