Not surprising. The PJS is a Democrat newspaper. They use washed out Columnists like George Will, a Republican Establishment Man, mild mannered Johan Goldberg,and recently, a slightly past his day, Charles Krauthammer, as well as an occasional not well known Republican woman columnist.
While they feed us Democrat/Socialists like Pitts and Robinson on a repetitive basis. whose bias is offset by locals like Bob Murphy and dozens of others who write sensible comments to the PJS.
The local paper should know by now from the loss of their readership, that an angry and dissatisfied largely Republican and Independent Caucasian population, are dearly wanting a change No, no Republican will win a majority of Hispanic votes nor black votes. Too many of them suck on the government tit and would prefer a Socialist like Bernie Sanders An overwhelming majority who would vote for Barack Hussein Obama if only this failed president could complete his plan to run for a third term.
So even the Republican Establishment and the elite who know better than "us", may find they will need to vote for Trump if they want ANY slender chance of defeating Hillary. .
Don't expect Trump to win California, which will some day be renamed MexCali, nor the far left states of Washington and Oregon. But do expect him to be the Republican nominee for the Presidency of the "United" States of America.
But it is better to hold your nose and vote Republican if you ever want to see a Republican president before 2032 or never. Even then, the fast growing Muslim population is most likely not to support any Republican.
No, I don't subscribe to the PJS but read it at the Lakeview Library along with a half dozen or so readers. Once you get by the comment page, the obits and slimmed down sport pages, there isn't much but a preponderance of full page ads Some days more ads than content.
