On Tuesday’s Mark Levin show, It was primary night Tuesday in Indiana with Donald Trump winning and Ted Cruz dropping out of the race. There is little question that Donald Trump will now be the Republican nominee for President of the United States. Conservatives have again been denied a truly conservative candidate for the presidency. Donald Trump has to figure out how to unite conservatives behind his campaign. So far, Trump has failed to do so. Trump brought up a National Enquirer story that accuses Ted Cruz’s father of being in cooperation with Lee Harvey Oswald in JFK’s assassination. This is insanity and the media that are promoting this are humiliating themselves; they should be ashamed. Also, we are losing this country and have failed to get out the conservative Reagan message during this election. Instead we experience endless controversy and static.May take a break for a few, so here's my parting thoughts, as shared by Erick Erickson:
What else is there to say than the Republican electorate have spoken piss poorly and in doing so have handed the presidency (and likely more) over to Hillary and the Left...
TheResurgent: A lot of us said Donald Trump would never get this far. To do so we had to ignore all the polling and data and we did. We could not conceive of a Republican Party committing suicide. But now, Trump’s supporters have to ignore all the polling and data to move further and presume he can win in November.Equally disheartening is the rejection of THE constitutional conservative in this race, and hence constitutional conservatism itself by a maddened, senselessly enraged Republican electorate, as Ted Cruz exits the presidential arena...
The truth is that Trump cannot win. 42% of Republican voters have an unfavorable view of Trump. 53% of registered voters have an unfavorable view of Trump. 70% of women have an unfavorable view of Trump. 89% of Hispanics have an unfavorable view of Trump.
The Republican Party is on the verge of nominating the least popular politician in American presidential history. Ironically, the party’s voters are doing it to spite its own leaders, but its leaders prefer Trump to the other guy.
The result will be Hillary Clinton winning in November. Trump cannot build a meaningful coalition outside of blue collar white voters, white supremacists, and internet conspiracy theorists. The rest of the voting public no more wants Trump than herpes.
Already Trump supporters are setting the stage for Trump’s defeat in November, blaming those of us who have declared ourselves “never Trump” for his loss. But Trump’s loss will be squarely on him and those who chose to support him while ignoring the overwhelming evidence that the American public would reject him.
Republican voters have deluded themselves into thinking 40% of the Republican Party equaled the “will of the people.” The Republican Party is the smaller of the two political parties and a majority of registered voters view Trump unfavorably.
With the results of the Indiana GOP tonight, the Republican Party is voting for suicide, handing the White House to Hillary Clinton, and handing the Supreme Court to the left for a generation at least.
TheResurgent: Ted Cruz is ending his Presidential campaign.No, it will not...which is why it's time for a new party movement.
That is a sad way to end the Republican Party, handing it over to a man supported by white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
The strain on Ted Cruz and his family had to be enormous, particularly with the vicious attacks by Trump and his supporters. God bless him. History will note that the Republican leadership in Washington vastly prefers defeat with Trump than defeat with Cruz because a Cruz nomination would both further embolden conservatives to fight the leadership of the party and would endanger the jobs of Republican consultants.
They will all be protected now and the GOP will not change.
The Republican Party has condemned itself tonight by its members' own hands, putting its fate in the embrace of an egotistical oaf, as if he's somehow an improvement on the current narcissist. He's not.
But if they want him, they can certainly attempt to elect him...but I'll be no part of this mass media charade. I'm tired, and I'm done.
Good night, and may God help us.
