So these were two separate polls, I just saw them on the TV, not from online so I don’t have a link to provide.
49% of voters pick Trump as GOP nominee. In another poll though, 35% said they would “definitely not” support him in the general election and “probably won’t” support him 17%.
Mission accomplished for CNN and those who propped Trump up as the messiah and “outsider” (as compared to Carson who is an outsider AND a Conservative). In their efforts to destroy the best of the GOP, they have ensured a Clinton victory, unfortunately, it was how I saw this unfolding IF Trump could win (I admit I was wrong as I didn’t think he COULD, but I did think he might run independent and control the outcome that way). I don’t dislike Clinton as some of you do, my philosophy is counter to her economic policies and positions against the TPP and NAFTA, not unlike Trump and Sanders, otherwise she doesn’t concern me and she does have great experience.
I find it comical how much the CNN try to justify their full support of Trump and the coverage they have given him based on him being in the lead. In one exchange when CNN defended their decisions, they were asked “where was all of this support for Romney last election?” I don’t have anything particular against CNN, but it’s clear their political discourse, it’s the same reason why Clinton has never even accepted an offer to do an interview on Fox with particular reporters. Fox is obviously on the Right, CNN, the Left. Nothing wrong with this, but the excessive support CNN gave Trump was unmatched, even Charles Barkley took a shot at them for this support. Of course, the real wild card here is what if somehow Trump BEATS her? Wouldn’t that be the most ironic, one for the ages.
Another guest stated that for three full weeks in August CNN gave a full 77% of political coverage to Trump! So, even if you are a Trump supporter, surely you must see this as problematic in the interest of a strong, thriving democracy.
One final note. The free pass that Trump has been given for the vetting process will go by the way side if he is selected the nominee, just as Rubio has suggested. It will be a field day against him.
