I mean, they are even trotting out the “What does he know about the Political System?” bit. And “Very inexperienced”.
Where were they when Hillary and Barry were running? Hillary might have been marginally competent, Barry wasn’t even that. Trump may not know Politics, but he is at the least a leader….
I think they know that he will take many of their middle of the road voters…Sorta semi-conservative types.
And, ultimately, they know that they will lose if the vote is split 3 ways.
(is it harder to cheat if there are three candidates??)
