A time for choosing and Trump is not a choice
The Republican Choice: Ted Cruz or Hillary ClintonThe same data shows that Cruz can defeat Hillary Clinton. Trump is just a loser when it comes to a head to head match up with Cruz or Clinton. He has alienated so much of the Republican base in this campaign, he would be trying to win with only a fraction of the GOP voters.
Stuart Rothenberg notes today that Trump’s Electoral College math does not add up. Trump has higher unfavorables than Hillary Clinton and any attempt to raise Hillary’s unfavorables further will only also raise Trump’s unfavorables.
Exit poll data last night showed that a third of Republicans and fully 40% of those who voted against Trump do not want to vote for him in the general election. Assuming even just a quarter actually do take that position in November, Hillary Clinton will be the President.
