The Trump Wrecking Ball
By Donald Moskowitz
March 26, 2016
Trump could win the Republican nomination, but lose to Clinton in the general election. He might severely damage the Republican Party, and adversely impact Republicans in Congressional and state races. His un-American campaign of political violence and hooliganism is reminiscent of 20th century Nazi and Communist dictators.
In the Republican primaries Trump is averaging 35% of the vote. If Trump was up against one other candidate, polls show he might get another 10% of the vote. History reveals primary candidates receiving less than 50% of the vote will lose the election for President.
The U.S. electorate comprises 26% Republicans, 30% Democrats, and 44% Independents. Polls show Trump garnering 70% of the Republican vote, or 18% (30% voting other); 5% of the Democratic vote, or 1.5%; and 40% of the Independent vote, or 18%, giving him 37.5% of the total vote. Clinton will receive few Republican votes; 95% of the Democratic vote, or 28.5%; and 60% of the Independent vote, or 26%. This gives Clinton 54.5% of the total vote, Trump 37.5%, and the remaining 8% are write-ins or blank ballots.
It is a Trump Wrecking Ball. The integrity of the Republican Party and the dignity of the Presidency is at stake.
