Rush Limbaugh cannot exactly have been said to be cheering on Donald Trump during the contested primary, but it wouldn’t be fair to say that he was rooting against him either. Limbaugh did his best to navigate the minefield between supporters of Ted Cruz and followers of Donald Trump. It was a difficult road and Limbaugh faced some difficult questions, especially when failing to side with conservativism against pragmatism, but his choice of the middle-road may be proving prescient.
Now that Trump has all but sealed the deal and is almost certain to be the GOP presidential nominee, Limbaugh is predicting a victory of “YUUUGE” proportions.
Let me give you one little thing: My instinctive feeling right now is that Trump is gonna win, beat Hillary badly, that it could be landslide proportions.
I still don’t think people understand why Trump won this. I don’t think they understand at all the reason people support Trump. And the deeper people are entrenched in politics, and the more they are accustomed to the templates and the handbooks and the theories and the playbooks, the less they’re gonna understand it. The more they try to plug Donald Trump and his campaign and his personality into the professional politician candidate playbook that they use, the farther and farther from the truth they are going to get…
If you follow the news, it’s clear Bernie Sanders is winning (it seems like) every primary the past month. And accompanying every Bernie Sanders victory story is the fact that he won nothing, that Hillary gets the delegates. So there’s just as many — or proportionally just as many — agitated Democrats. You add up people supporting Bernie Sanders to people supporting Donald Trump, and the people that supported Ted Cruz.
You add up those voters — and if they all vote, too, Hillary Clinton doesn’t have a prayer. I don’t care about the Electoral College. I don’t care about anything else. Just like in terms of the people that are fed up with Washington and the establishment, as we sit here today, she is the lone candidate representing what obviously so many Americans, Republicans and Democrats for their own reasons right now happen to despise. She’s losing the vote in every state, and yet the Democrats expect her to triumph. Where is her momentum?
How in the world does Hillary go from losing after losing after losing to becoming a triumphant victor at the Democrat convention when she didn’t win diddly-squat except superdelegates in the Democrat Party? And I guarantee you, the AP and the media and the Democrat Party, they’re not factoring all of this in because they’re sitting there saying, “We’re the Democrats! We’re invincible. We own the media. We don’t lose.” They don’t have… They haven’t figured out yet that the media wants Donald Trump to be elected president.
