Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer gave his take on the GOP presidential nominee race on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Election HQ” on Sunday.
According to Krauthammer, Trump’s supporters are the most “hardcore” among the GOP presidential candidates, but he said only 7 percent of the polled caucus-goers have him as their second choice, while other candidates have all received a higher percentage.
“It suggests that whoever can get through Iowa, even perhaps through New Hampshire, they have room to grow much more than Trump,” he explained. “The reason is that the Trump is support is very hardcore, very loyal. Again, can he grow beyond that? If the others get through you could see them collecting the votes of the ones who are winnowed out of the field and that would make it a very tight two-way race or three-way race.”
