Monday on NewsmaxTV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” former White House chief of staff to President George H. W. Bush and former Gov. John H. Sununu (R-NH) said if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wins the nomination Republicans will get swept in national elections in 2016.
Sununu said, “I assume that even the Trump supporters want this country to move in a different direction. If Trump is the nominee, we lose — as Republicans we lose the Senate, we lose most of the House and we lose the presidency. It is nice to go for somebody that has hot rhetoric that makes you feel good, but this is somebody that has turned off 80 percentof America. He may have the support of 25 percent of Republicans which is about 12 percent of America. But 80 percent of America really does not like this man.”
