Governors and Senators

i just read that not one GOP Governor or GOP Senator supports either Trump or Cruz.

 This is going to be quite a party.

Re: Governors and Senators

And those that recieve endorsements are 4% in the polls  Smiley Very Happy  given the current attitude of a great number of voters, endorements are a liabilty.  I hear Obama isn`t going to campaign for candidates that don`t support his meeeeeaningful gun control, well is there any Democrats left that don`t support meeeeaningful gun confiscation?   I don`t think any Democrat politician that wants Obama, will have any trouble fitting his criteria.

 

 

The Bigshots around here that belong to a certain very pious church all have giant Ted Cruz signs out at their mailbox..you know, that endorsement doesn`t exactly help Ted Cruz  Smiley Happy   Makes Trump look all the better to me.

 

What I would like to see is a poll where they ask Bush, Huckabee, Santorum and all the candidate supporters :  "If it`s a race between Hillary and Trump, will you support Trump?"  See what I would like to know is how much support from other candidates will go to Trump if he is the nominee.  I would imagine most of Kaisch`s supporters would choose Hillary over Trump for example.

 

If Trump`s support + other Liberty candidate`s that drop out support gets him to 50% and the establishment Bush or Rubio take the other 50%, it could go to the convention where of course the establishment would steal the nomination.

Hillary is probably their man.

I think it is nearly impossible to handicap a Trump or Cruz vs. Hillary general at this point regardless of what polls say.

 

Things skew in all sorts of strange ways with a lot of RINOs unethusiastic at best. My guess is that relatively few of these folks cross over, though. More a turnout issue than anything. Money, but there will be money so that's not an issue. Even at 50/50 this is the best investment going in a 0 yield world.

 

Some Ds, particularly white working class males, probably more likely to cross over.

 

The enthusiasm of millennials for Clinton will be substantially less than Obama.

 

Minorities will turn out in record numbers for Clinton, obviously. More a function of anti-republican than enthusiasm from them.

 

It is hard for me to see a turnout of previously nonvoting whites, evangelicals and cultural conservatives in particular, of a magnitude to counteract that.

 

The latter is the key- the gamble the GOP has taken. That and a belief that they can suppress enough of that key opposition vote.

 

Either way, a bipartisan path straight onto another step down for a fragmented and troubled republic.

Re: Governors and Senators

Rather remarkably, GWB got 40% of the hispanic vote in 2000.

 

Trump won't get 10.

 

As to whether there are enough Deportados to jump in and offset I can't say but it is a big number to have to make up.

in round numbers....

how many support the hildebeast or barry sanderclaus? Maybe they are sitting on the fence until the nominee is more clear.

 

just read a politco poll that said self identified democrats in the USA have shrunk to the lowest level in a decade or so...that Obama sure has fired up the troops, right? Besides being the best gun salesman, Barry also has turned into the best republican recruiter the USA has ever witnessed.

 

Trump is a dangerous candidate in that he has the ability to draw from so many different demographics....I know democrats...the team D guys and gals that really are not socialists or communists,  that view Trump as the second coming of Ronald Reagan, and Reagan just about cleaned the table, remember?

 

Women like him, the war on women strategy ain't gonna work against him...hispanics that vote don't really hate him, and if he has a Cruz or (yuk) rubio as a running mate, he may very well eclipse the 40% mark GW rang up.

 

I would not bet against Donald Trump being the next president of the USA at this point. Especially if he is running against Sanderclaus or the hilderbeast, and who else you got??????

 

One thing about Donald...he is not going to nominate two more fruitcakes to be Supreme Court justices..Maybe a couple more Semites, but certainly not two like Barry put on.

 

I would hold my nose and vote for him, and undoubtably enough people in the USA feel the same way to pave his road to the white house, but that is why they hold elections.

 

Whoever is the republican nominee, and it would be nice to actually have a conservative, they will have the biggest advantage anyone could wish for...they are not Hillary Clinton. Why on earth would the democrats run her? Completely befuddles me to have Bill Clinton's enabler still showing up on Sunday TV, still trying to spin the deeds of that creep, and still hanging on to his coat tails. Some people have the common decency to just go away...but not the Clintons.
