You can’t look at polls, they’re all wrong, we’ve been told. Cruz, Kasich, and Rubio will over perform and poor old Donald will underperform.
These are the current talking points to cover GOP fraud.
Except that totally dismisses all the other factors. How bad did the Fox Moderators/Rubio gutter attacks hurt Trump in the last debate?
I would suggest that, and not Romney, is what is hurting Trump currently.
I’m Catholic, and the Pope’s comments about Trump only strengthened by support of Trump, and soured my opinion of His Holiness.
So I would imagine (hope) that Mormons and evangelicals think with their brains than just their Bibles.
It’s not as much a Romney influence as much as a Mormon Church influence. They have put out the word, Rubio is their sanctioned candidate. Idaho is approx 20% or more Mormon.
I have a theory that Reid/Romney is pushing the Mormon Church to elect Hillary.
Lets see what shakes out.
Cruz should win Idaho. And Hawaii I suspect.
But only those today.
It’s not going to stop the trajectory for Trump. Trump still takes the big states here Michigan and Mississippi. Nibbling around the edges in small caucus states is not going to do it, and those caucus states are about exhausted.
i have a bad feeling trump will lose in idaho and Hawaii. But hes big test is in michigan. If he wins in michigan where its an open primary that means hes crossover appeal.
mississippie should be like alabama or georgia.. but if he wins in miss but its by a 2-3 point margin.. it means these attacks have really hurt him.
Poll link? No polling on Realclear. All polls from Saturday and some from Tuesday Cruz won more votes minimum of 10 than polls showed. I am definitely watching Idaho.
Keep an eye on Michigan too....Romney’s is state republican chair.
As a Mormon myself, with family in Idaho in politics, I have heard them complain on more than one occasion that if they could just get the Mormons out to vote that they could get more of their conservative candidates to win and it would be enough to give them the edge. But because they wouldn’t vote in high enough numbers, liberals and liberal agendas were winning the day in many cases where it should not have happened. Needless to say, that was a few years ago but I still think it may be the case. I’m not sure about Mitt’s robocalls effectiveness. I guess we will know by tonight. The point is that Mormons don’t always vote.
Personally, I am very upset with Mitt. And if you want to hit him with a Mormon phrase that might give him pause, just say that he’s “gone Gadianton”. (It’s probably worse than calling him Hitler)
That’s a dumb measuring stick. There are lots of Mormons in idaho. Watch Mississippi or Michigan.
Do the Mormons consider him a draft dodger like so many RC’s and Protestants do?
Cruz beat Trump by 20 points, so Cruz beat Trump by 20. So the polls were 33-39 off? Thanks, for the poll link also.
