A new poll shows that a strong majority of Republican voters now wish Donald Trump wasn’t their nominee. If only they would have realized that 8 months ago. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

It’s no secret that a lot of elected Republican officials, 110 Republican elected officials so far, really don’t want Donald Trump to be the Republican nominee, but what about the voters? I mean, these are the people who put Donald Trump in this position. Well, according to new polls, 54%, a majority of Republican voters, do not want Donald Trump as their nominee. In fact, only 35% of registered Republicans, according to latest polls, are saying that yeah, they think Donald Trump is a good choice. Now, what’s funny about this is the fact that it’s these same voters, a majority of them, who put Donald Trump in this position to begin with. They had 17 Republican candidates to choose from during the primaries, and a majority of Republicans out there came forward, went to the polls, and checked that little box next to Donald Trump’s name, making him their nominee. Now, suddenly they’re like, “Oh, crap. We don’t want this.” Too bad. You’re stuck with it. You did this to yourself.
It’s like a parent teaches their children, actions have consequences, some good, some bad, but every choice you make comes back in some way. This is exactly what Republican voters are dealing with. Suddenly, they’ve got this buyer’s remorse. They don’t want Donald Trump to be their nominee. Maybe it’s because they disagree with what he’s saying, but I think most of it has to do with the fact that he is absolutely tanking in the polls. They wanted somebody that would beat the Democrats. Didn’t matter who it was. If Donald Trump right now was polling ahead of Hillary Clinton, I’m sure these poll numbers with 54% disliking him would be slightly lower, but that’s all that matters to them, is winning these elections. They don’t care who does it. They just want it to happen. Right now, they’re stuck with a candidate that has absolutely no shot in hell of ever winning a general election.
