Conventional wisdom says that Donald Trump will be a huge underdog against Hillary Clinton in November.
But yesterday on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh said that conventional wisdom is wrong:
Let me give you one little thing: My instinctive feeling right now is that Trump is gonna win, beat Hillary badly, that it could be landslide proportions.
Limbaugh has always been a very measured commentator. While he’s known for a little bombast, he doesn’t throw out crazy predictions and dream scenarios very often. For him to go out on a limb and suggest Trump could win in a landslide, that’s certainly saying something. This is also coming at a time when many conservatives, including Erick Erickson, are suggesting Hillary Clinton has already won.
Limbaugh went on to explain the Trump phenomenon and why he believes Ted Cruz lost:
I still don’t think people understand why Trump won this. I don’t think they understand at all the reason people support Trump…
I’ve tried to help. During the course of this entire campaign, I’ve gone to great lengths to try to explain to people what it is about Trump, why he has his supporters, why they support him, and what you have to do to separate them from Trump. Basically, you can’t. That’s the bottom line. There’s nothing any professional politician can do. They’ve done everything that they knew how to beat a candidate. They threw everything they had at Trump.
