The Polls Trump Hasnít Won
Wall Street Journal ^ | 3/9/16 | Karl Rove

Posted on 03/10/2016 6:32:19 AM PST by jimbo123

-snip-

Mr. Trump suggests those numbers will improve when he begins attacking Mrs. Clinton in the general election: “I haven’t even started on her yet.” Then again, neither have Democrats started on him.

They will pummel him over his bankruptcies, this summer’s Trump University fraud trial, his crude and misogynistic statements, his nativism while hiring foreign workers, his imperious manner. These things may not matter to Mr. Trump’s die-hard Republican primary supporters; they will matter to swing voters in a general election.

The GOP contest will arrive at its most critical moment next week. If Gov. Kasich wins Ohio, Sen. Rubio wins Florida and Sen. Cruz wins North Carolina, no one is likely to go to the convention with a delegate majority. On the other hand, if Mr. Trump wins Florida and Ohio, he’ll arrive in Cleveland in a strong position to become the party’s standard-bearer.

At this stage, stopping Donald Trump from winning the nomination will require Republicans to vote strategically, casting ballots for the non-Trump candidate best positioned to win each state. That’s easy to suggest; it’s a lot harder to pull off.

Karl Rove doesn’t know squat about swing voters, let alone GOP voters.

It’s good that the GOPe is pounding Trump over their contrived issues now, so that the questions are cleared up before the rats get into slinging the mud. There’s not going to be anything left for them to sling, but their own.

It seems to me that all the rats can do is the same ole same ole..destruction. That’s all they’re good for. Slinging more mud is proof of exactly that.

Funny picture

Oink oink.

“If Gov. Kasich wins Ohio, Sen. Rubio wins Florida and Sen. Cruz wins North Carolina”

Ha.

Rove is nuts.

No way Trump loses N. Carolina. He does best in the south.

Say goodbye, Karl. You haven’t been relevant since 2004. And even then, you flubbed up so bad that your guy nearly lost in what should have been a landslide. Go away.

If polls are so accurate, why do we bother having elections?

Bring it. He will swat down these stupid "attacks" for what they are....trivial attempts by politicians desperate to hold on to their power structure.
