Karl Rove: Trump Will Lose The Election

Karl Rove has studied the polls enough to conclude that Donald Trump’s presidential bid is doomed, according to The Huffington Post.

The Republican Party strategist declared Sunday on Fox News that the GOP nominee is too far behind to catch Democrat Hillary Clinton. “I don’t see it happening,” Rove said. “If he plays an inside straight, he could get it, but I doubt he’s going to be able to play it.”

The conservative adviser and commentator noted that Trump is losing in so-called “battleground” states that he must win to have a chance of becoming president. Rove calculated that the real-estate mogul is certain to get only 168 electoral votes, more than 100 short of the necessary 270. In 2012, Republican nominee Mitt Romney received 206 electoral votes in his loss to President Obama.

While Trump is narrowly ahead of Clinton in Iowa and Ohio, which Obama won four years ago, the states are too close to call. More troubling to Republicans is Clinton’s leads in Arizona and North Carolina, where Romney was victorious. Also, Clinton appears to be headed for a win in the crucial state of Florida.

Citing the Democrat’s lead in swing states, Rove explained: “I doubt that in the just over two weeks we’ve got left, conducting the kind of campaign (Trump) is conducting, that he’s going to be able to swing one out of every, you know, 10 voters; one out of every 12 voters; one out of every 15 voters; and one out of every six voters in a state and convert them.”
