The Republicans had to choose between a charismatic maverick billionaire and a handful of dead ducks.
It chose the charismatic maverick billionaire.
The Democrats had to choose between an establishment crook and a senile Communist. Before they could decide, the establishment crook hit the senile Communist below the belt and knocked him out. The problem with this is that they both shared the same voter base which got severely fractured.
So in the end it was a no-contest between a charismatic maverick billionaire who had the full support of his constituency and a severely fractured establishment crook.
