Courtesy of TPM:.@JoeNBC: Republicans aren't going to win the presidency... Trump is not a guy who is going to lead you to victory https://t.co/hStZ111oqZ— Morning Joe (@Morning_Joe) August 2, 2016
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Monday declared matter-of-factly that “Republicans aren’t going to win the presidency” with Donald Trump as the party’s nominee and the focus should now be on avoiding huge losses for down-ballot Republicans.
“People say if you don't support Donald Trump, then Republicans aren't going to win the presidency. Well, Republicans aren't going to win the presidency,” Scarborough said on “Morning Joe.”
“At this point, and I'm just being a selfish Republican, for me it's about saving the Senate, it’s about not getting wiped out in the House, it’s about not getting wiped out in the state legislatures and governorships,” he continued. “We have a lot to lose.”
Well that is good to hear, and I agree wholeheartedly.
I myself think it is quite likely that the Republicans will lose the Senate and certainly lose a number of seats in the House.
However I also feel that whatever Clinton wants to accomplish in her presidency she better get done during the first four years, because the deck is stacked against her for winning a second term.
That is unless the Republicans allow another human train wreck like Donald Trump to win nomination that is.
