From day one I didn’t think Hillary Clinton was going to be the one to represent the Communist, I mean Democrat Party in this upcoming election. I wrote on several occasions that she wouldn’t make it to the finish line – pointing to the fact that virtually everyone – even the dems dislike her. She is also dull and inspires no confidence from her party. Couple that with the animus Barack and Michelle Obama have for her and her husband Bubba. I’m sure it’s likewise for the Clintons. After all, the party threw her overboard for the virtual unknown Obama in 2008.
I thought they would treat her as the republicans, until now, have treated their candidates. Give it to the next man up, unless they find someone better. But I was wrong. Yes it’s technically not over yet, but she has all but wrapped it up. Yet it’s been a tough slog for Clinton, which shows what a pathetically weak candidate she is, losing countless states to an old socialist fossil like Sanders.
I figured by now, Obama would have tired of her and instructed Loretta Lynch to indict her, get her out of the way and promote Biden or someone. I’m frankly surprised at his hands-off approach, keeping his distance. Maybe it’s due to him realizing what a weak bench they have.
So here we are. It’s down to two authoritarian candidates. The conventional wisdom is now that Hillary will likely win the general election by default, which is the only way she can. Trump’s negatives are so high it is said he can’t win. There is a large swath of establishment NeverTrump folks, constitutional conservatives like me who will not be voting for him, as well as many others who are just scared of him.
But then Glenn Beck comes out and predicts a Trump victory in November. Beck explained that we had the perfect opportunity to begin to restore the nation by nominating a constitutionalist who would then sweep the pitiful Hillary, but that’s not what happened.
Trump just did a better job than anyone else tapping into and fueling the anger and frustration of the right. He did a masterful job. It had nothing at all to do with restoring the nation to a constitutional form of government as Cruz stressed. I’m not sure I’ve ever even heard Trump speak of the Constitution – just the wall, trade deals and the ubiquitous “Make America Great Again” slogan. Trump may in fact know better than we that there are few who know the Constitution or care. They, like the democrats in 2008, just want change.
As Glenn said, republican voters “just want somebody to stop the madness.” He said the real key to Trump’s success thus far and going forward is star power, which The Donald surely has in spades over dull as dishwater Hillary.
Beck then broke things down, discussing what percentage of voters were coming out for Trump. To be sure there a lot of republicans who say they will not vote for him. Glenn says there are a roughly 40 percent who say they will not vote for Trump, but we all know that is inflated. Many people talk tough, but will fold in the solitude of the voting booth. He estimates the number may actually be around 10-20%. Still, that’s a lot to make up.
But recent exit polls suggest that 30 percent of democrats will vote for Trump over Clinton. Glenn says this shows just how “weak of a candidate she is.” He asked, “when was the last time you ever saw a poll that said 5 percent of Democrats would vote for a Republican? Certainly not 30 percent in an exit poll that say they would cross over.”
And I believe now that this is what Trump is banking on – disenfranchised democrats who feel more excitement for The Donald than Hillary, which shouldn’t be difficult.
Rest assured, Glenn has not jumped on the Trump Train, but considering the recent exit polls showing dem support for Trump, his prediction is probably pretty sound.
