Huckabee Just Revealed The One And ONLY Way Trump Won’t Be President
If anyone can do that, he'd better hurry...

After Tuesday’s Nevada Caucuses, the opera may not be over, but the fat lady is clearing her throat.

Donald Trump’s 45.9% total in Nevada was larger than Cruz’s and Rubio’s put together. It was also his third straight win, and in states that couldn’t be more diverse, culturally, politically and geographically. Next week brings us Super Tuesday. If any candidate is going to derail the Trump super-train, it needs to happen then. One complication: polls show him leading everywhere but Texas.

Many establishment Republicans still cling to the slender hope that Trump has reached his ceiling; and if only all the other candidates but one would fall on their swords and quit, all their supporters would flock to the last non-Trumpian man standing. Sorry, but that’s a pipe dream.

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.

Blasting Trump for not being a consistent conservative also won’t dissuade his supporters. It’s as simple as the old saying: “When you point a finger at someone else, three fingers are pointing back at you.” Trump’s supporters have heard for years that they had to vote for “consistent philosophical conservatives” if they wanted to shrink government, reduce spending, secure the borders and stop Obama’s leftist agenda. They gave the GOP both Houses of Congress, and what did they get in return? Obama’s Iran nuclear deal and a budget that funds every item on the Obama wish list.

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.

But if anyone can do that, he’d better hurry. He has until next Tuesday.
