Matthew Dowd: Trump IS Not The GOP Elites Problem The Voters Are

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while discussing the ideological divide between some Republicans and the likely presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, the former chief strategist for the Bush-Cheney 2004 presidential campaign, political analyst Matthew Dowd said, “Donald Trump is not the problem for the GOP elite. The republican voters are the problem for the GOP elite.”

Dowd said, “Well, I think, actually, the breach is not between — fundamentally between the elite and Donald Trump. It’s between various members of the elite and GOP voters. The problem for the GOP elite is that the GOP voters have spoken and Donald Trump represents their party. I think Paul Ryan and others in the party have to decide if the Republican party, as it is today, represented by Donald Trump, is their party anymore. Donald Trump is not the problem for the GOP elite. The Republican voters are the problem for the GOP elite.”
