To all those republican elites and so called conservative talking heads, the Eastwood speech at the RNC Convention was a hit.
Clint Eastwood delivered one of the most unusual convention speeches in recent memory last week, and America’s Political Class didn’t know what to make of it.

While Republican officials were uncertain about Eastwood, 78% of GOP voters have a favorable opinion of him.
