We judge him by the company he keeps: specificall, the words he chooses to use to make his points. 
If Trump starts quoting Hitler, are people going to say, "well, he DOES have a point, even though Hitler did some bad things"?

You do know that the Tea Party was a creation of the GOP establishment funders (i.e. the real "leaders") such as the Kochs?

Nice try. How much does Fox News pay you for online revisionism?
Die hard conservatives disliked Obama long before he was elected.

They only recently became fed up with the GOP leadership (McConnell, Paul Ryan, Boehner and then Ryan etc.) to the point of rejecting party establishment directives.

Arguing that Obama is an evil genius who is somehow orchestrating Trump's popularity with the GOP's base is a sure symptom of stage V ODS

 
Go back to the Tea Party for a time line on the rejection of leadership.

Not in the tank for Fox, not by a long short.  I listen but check before I leap or at least sure as hell try.  I don't trust anyone anymore, more than I did so in the past.  And breaking news for you, Trump and Fox really do not like each other.  Fox tolerates Trump for ratings dollars.  If Fox is in the tank for anyone, its Rubio.

ymwv ... 

.
Edit: doesn't really matter cuz Hillary is in anyway.  The only thing stopping her is the FBI.

isn't trump a negotiator?

if elected, i don't think he'll be able to do all of the things that he has on his agenda

ask for more than he knows he can get

so he'll settle or negotiate
 
Negotiator or not, it's what politicians tend to do in an election race.

Maybe he'll set a "tremendous, enormous, fantastic, huge" record for executive orders taken in a single term.
