The surge of Donald Trump has upset many people, but it seems the people he is upsetting the most, are the people in his own party. It seems that Republican donors with links to several presidential candidates as well as a prominent GOP operative are pooling their resources in a new effort to go after Donald Trump and keep the party’s presidential front-runner from winning the nomination. The group’s goal, according to The Wall Street Journal, is to collect money from anonymous donors to “defeat and destroy” Trump.
Donald Trump is ahead in every poll, so why is the Republican Party so against him instead of supporting him? Well, I believe it is because he can’t be bought and main stream Republicans don’t like that. Trump is his own man who won’t be intimidated.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich is planning to air attack ads against Trump in New Hampshire. And, in a sign of the project’s appeal among donors, it is starting to get funding from donors backing candidates other than Kasich, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. The anti-Trump effort comes as he continues to dominate the polls. The latest Fox News poll showed him with a record 28 percent support from primary voters.
Let’s face it, Trump does not take crap from anyone, he says what needs to be said, unlike all those that are plotting against him. Trying to destroy Trump when he is so popular can be very dangerous for the Republican Party. The anti-Trump group wants $250,000 from the other GOP presidential campaigns to run anti-Trump TV, radio and web ads and to pitch opposition research to local stations in early-voting states.
The voice of the people is supposed to be what counts, not what the party elite want. With Trump gaining support with Republican voters as well as independent voters, I think the Republicans better start listening. Some in the so-called Republican establishment and GOP “donor class” fear the party will lose the general election if Trump wins the nomination, arguing his comments and views are alienating Hispanic and black voters.
I could see the Left Wing Media and the Democratic Party just sitting back and letting the Republicans destroy themselves. At one point they said Reagan wouldn’t be able to win either and look what happened there. Let the people decide, not the establishment Republicans.
