The #NeverTrump Crowd

Donald Trump is not a conservative. He’s a populist. It’s very important to understand there is a fundamental difference between a conservative ideologue and a populist campaigning on a conservative platform, because that’s the key to understanding President Trump.

Ideologues tend to refuse to budge or compromise on their core beliefs, while populists are far more concerned with getting things accomplished. For example, pro-choice ideologues might agree with the stated position of Planned Parenthood, which asserts that even infanticide should become a legal option in the event of a botched abortion.
