Former Arkansas Governor and Fox News host Mike Huckabee dropped out of the 2016 Presidential race weeks ago.
Since that time, Huckabee has remained out of the spotlight and away from the heated presidential campaigns. But that just changed!
Huckabee, who appeared at conservative businessman Donald J. Trump’s rally for veterans during the Fox News debate boycott, has a clear message for the GOP establishment: if you continue what you’re doing, you will NEVER defeat Donald Trump!
As he explained to Western Journalism, the delegate math for Trump’s historic campaign is so strong that there’s nothing to compare it to.
After all, Trump won Nevada with a larger percentage than Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) votes combined. A third win in-a-row, Trump is clearly winning with a more diverse group of voters than the GOP is used to attracting.
The poll numbers are extraordinary:
North Carolina’s Elon University asked voters to name their first and second choices. They found that if Carson dropped out, 39% of his voters would back Trump instead. If Kasich quit, 29% of his supporters would flock to Trump. Jeb Bush was the closest thing to the Anti-Trump, but 31% of his voters would actually switch to Trump. Even if Ted Cruz packed it in, 43% of his voters would go to Trump, more than would support Rubio.
Then, Huckabee explained the only way another candidate could defeat Trump at this late hour:
It’s now obvious that name-calling and badgering candidates to quit will not work. At this point, there is only one way for any other candidate to beat Trump. It’s the same way a Republican will have to defeat the Democrat in November: by doing a better job of convincing voters that he’s heard their concerns and will act on them.
And even if that’s possible, they only have until next Tuesday to accomplish that.
