He’s baaack! The presidential candidate who can’t even muster 1% in the polls is now an “expert” on Donald Trump’s chances against Hillary Clinton…
Graham made the following remarks on this morning’s MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”:
“Donald Trump will get killed in a general election … Hillary Clinton will mop up the floor with this guy … To Republicans if you want to win the race, we have two problems, Hispanics and young women. Donald Trump’s position on immigration is hateful and illogical, there’s a reason 75 percent of Hispanics disapprove of this guy. We will get slaughtered if he is the nominee. So if you give a darn about winning, pick someone who doesn’t dig the hole deeper with Hispanics.”
First of all Graham apparently hasn’t even looked at actual polling data compiled by actual pollsters. Recent polls from Rasmussen and Survey USA both indicate that Trump is leading Hillary. Furthermore, the Survey USA poll shows a demographic breakdown that shows Trump doing surprisingly well among Hispanics with 31% favoring Trump (that doesn’t compute to 75% disapproval as Graham claimed.) Apparently a good number of legal immigrants stand with Trump on amnesty.
Lindsey Graham represents everything that is wrong in Washington – a total insider beholden to Wall Street and the US Chamber, who also happens to be John McCain’s toady.
Any candidate who is polling less than 1% who has nothing better to do than shriek about the party’s front-runner’s supposed “un-electability” needs to be told to shut up and go away.
