Coulter: Trump Has Best Shot of Declared Candidates in General Election

Columnist and author of “Adios, America” Ann Coulter said Donald Trump has the best chance of winning the general election of all the declared Republican candidates on the “Overtime” segment of Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time.”

Coulter said that of the declared Republican candidates Donald Trump has the best chance of winning the general election. She added, when asked if she could broaden the pool to non-declared candidates responded, “of the ones who aren’t declared, — Romney/Walker’s my ticket.”

She continued, that Romney lost back in 2012 because it’s very hard to beat an incumbent, but that “Romney would crush Hillary,” and that Bernie Sanders would be a tougher candidate for the Republicans to beat than Hillary Clinton because “he cares about the American middle — middle class/working class. Hillary doesn’t. She’s like the elected Republicans, she cares about the Chamber of Commerce.

Later Coulter criticized Marco Rubio because “all he’s done — first he violated his pledge, he ran saying, ‘Comprehensive immigration reform, that’s amnesty, I’m against it.’ He gets people to vote for him…then he spends three years doing nothing but pushing amnesty. And we know it’s not popular, which is why I prefer Bernie Sanders to Hillary Clinton, who’s now on the side of the Chamber of Commerce. Because the American people have three times shut down an amnesty in the last ten years, and it’s not because of any network or any politician, other than a few very small ones were opposing it. It was the American people rising up and saying, ‘We don’t want amnesty.’ So, if that’s your big selling point, nope, don’t think it’s going to get anyplace.” And predicted that even Jeb Bush wouldn’t capture enough of the Hispanic vote to win the general election.
