After watching Trump tank in the polls and after getting this news, it’s apparent that Trump is a disaster waiting to happen. When Hugh Hewitt, the most loyal GOP establishment talk show host on radio, said that Trump was a disaster waiting to happen, people noticed. (I’m surprised that Sean Hannity hasn’t ripped Hugh for not worshiping at The Donald’s altar but that’s another post for another time.)
NBC News is reporting that “Every single 2016 presidential TV ad currently airing in a battleground state is either from Hillary Clinton’s campaign or the Democratic outside groups supporting her. The opposition, by contrast, hasn’t spent a dime in these same battlegrounds, whether it’s Donald Trump’s campaign or Republican-leaning Super PACs.”
That’s just for starters. The NBC article continues, saying “So far in June, Clinton and the outside groups backing her have spent a total of $23.3 million on ads in the battleground states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia, according to ad-spending data from SMG Delta. Republicans have spent $0 in these same eight states.”
Add to that the fact that Trump doesn’t have a GOTV operation. Add to that the fact that Trump insists on alienating major parts of the GOP base. (Think Second Amendment activists, amongst others.)
The lesson delegates should learn ASAP is that dumping Trump at the Convention isn’t a movement. It’s imperative. If Trump is the nominee, Republicans will lose North Carolina for the second time in 3 elections. They’ll lose Florida, Virginia and Ohio for the third straight time.
It’s indisputable that Hillary is a terrible candidate. It’s equally indisputable that she’s at least smart enough to put together a quality GOTV operation. At this point, any talk that Trump can win isn’t based in reality. It’s outright foolishness.
Trump isn’t self-financing like he’d promised. He’s opening up the electoral map but only in the sense that he’s turning red states like Utah and North Carolina momentarily purple. It’s time to stop this insanity. It’s time to officially Dump Trump.
