I know all the hype about how every vote is going to be needed in every state regardless who is the Republican nominee. I know all about the Electoral Math that is out there that shows the GOP needs to flip four states in order to make it to the White House in 2016. I know I’m not the least bit worried. I also know that every single Republican and independent voter out there needs to vote for the Republican nominee regardless who it is because whoever gets the nomination is going to be a far better president than Hillary Clinton.
That all being said, I’m not worried. Here’s why. The Republican party is being portrayed on the media (even the “right-wing” Fox News) as a fractured party that may not make it through the convention, much less the fall vote. That’s all hogwash. The fact of the matter is the Republicans are far more engaged this political cycle than the Democrats are. Want proof? Throughout the primary campaign so far, and we’re a long way from being done I recognize, the GOP has over 60% of the total votes cast in all of the primaries from both parties. That translates to 8 million more votes than the Democrats have received. And when you take Bernie Sanders and his throngs of people out of that mix, the Democrats’ engagement level drops precipitously. There’s a very solid reason for that; Hillary Clinton is not an excitable candidate. In fact, Hillary Clinton is a very weak candidate.
And that is the real reason why I’m not worried about this fall. I have a feeling the GOP will indeed unite under whoever gets the nod after a very contentious convention in Cleveland. And they will unite for one solid reason. There isn’t any other person, except maybe Barack Obama that the GOP hates more than Hillary Clinton. They will do anything to deny her the opportunity to further ruin this country. That is something the pundits aren’t telling you. I’m not saying that whomever the GOP sends through to the general election is going to be another Ronald Reagan…and remember…in 1976, the GOP turned their back on him to try and elect Gerald Ford (who lost big time!). But Reagan came back stronger in 1980. I can see the same thing happening this time around. I can see Trump actually prevailing in Cleveland, and Cruz coming back in four years or eight years and taking the nomination in 2020 if Trump opts out for only one term (and I think he will be tired of being president by then).
The Democrats have put their stock in a failed candidate, and unexciting candidate. There are fewer and fewer people that find her likable, and fewer and fewer people that find her trustworthy. When the FBI comes out with their referral to indict and Loretta Lynch doesn’t, there will be blowback of a huge proportion. The GOP will be fighting the current regime just like the Democrats ran against eight years of George W. Bush (whom they said stole not one but two elections).
We don’t need to worry…we only need to make sure we go to the polls and vote!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
