Another Wallace/Trump Column.

Now it's The Chicago Tribune writing about the two men and their runs for president. 

For Trump supporters, race has "been supplanted by Muslims and Mexicans and sense of economic betrayal," said Dan Carter, author of "The Politics of Rage: George Wallace, the Origins of the New Conservatism and the Transformation of American Politics."
Carter said Trump's support is also broader: Exit polls by CNN have showed him winning among the college-educated and upper middle class and the rich, although by smaller margins.
The fundamental similarities between the two campaigns are their attacks on the Washington establishment and the anger of their supporters. "Both men's fans feel betrayed," Carter said.

HERE is the whole column.
