Brit Hume: Trump Will Fade When Voters Realize He Is More a Dem

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” network senior political analyst Brit Hume said once Donald Trump’s recent Republican conversion is brought more to light he will fade in the polls.

Hume said, “There’s a segment of the Republican electorate that’s been present for some time that’s angry with GOP leadership in congress and on the campaign trail than it is with Democrats at least in terms of what you hear these people saying. Donald Trump is captivated them for the moment. And by doing so, he’s basically eclipsed Ted Cruz, the previous horse. He will have a run. I think the chickens will come home to roost. People will realize he hasn’t long been a Republican. For many years he gave more money to Democrats, praised Hillary Clinton, said that Mitt Romney was too mean on immigration for taking positions weaker than the one that he’s taken now and over time his moment will fade. It will take a while. He’s got a lot of money. He could be a third-party threat.”
