Ron­ald Rea­gan, Don­ald Trump: The pair are an au­to­matic draw for con­ser­va­tives at the mo­ment, some­thing that Mr. Trump likely mulls as he con­tin­ues to dom­i­nate many pres­i­den­tial polls. But he makes a mod­est link be­tween him­self and the 40th pres­i­dent in “Crip­pled Amer­ica: How to Make Amer­ica Great Again,” which drew cu­rios­ity and crit­i­cism from the press, but a strong re­sponse in ini­tial sales.

And about that con­nec­tion: In the book, Mr. Trump com­pares him­self to Rea­gan, who was a Demo­crat turned Repub­li­can in his time.

“He switched, and I switched years ago, when I be­gan to see what lib­eral Democrats were do­ing to our coun­try, Now I’m a con­ser­va­tive Repub­li­can with a big heart. I didn’t de­cide to be­come a Repub­li­can.


In­de­pen­dent me­dia maven Glenn Beck says he could or­ga­nize a his­toric de­bate for the Repub­li­can Party which could draw 41 mil­lion view­ers and lis­ten­ers.
