BILL HEMMER (HOST): What about [Donald Trump's] larger point that he's attracting other people to vote for him? 

JONAH GOLDBERG: I think it's absolutely fair and true. He's, you know, he's eliciting a lot of turnout. It's also fair to point out that while he's attracting a lot of pro-Trump voters, he's also inspiring a lot of anti-Trump voters. He's the most popular guy in the Republican Party, and he's the most unpopular guy in the Republican Party. That said, what he's doing is also though completely overturning what the Republican reset was supposed to be about after 2012, which was this idea that it was going to be a more consistently conservative but more inclusive and nicer toned party. And instead it's going to be a less conservative but meaner toned and less inclusive party, at least when it comes to non-white voters. And we'll see whether it works or not.
