‘There is not enough MAGA for Trump to win’

‘There is not enough MAGA for Trump to win’

Democratic strategist James Carville said Monday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that there was “not enough MAGA” for former President Donald Trump to win the presidential election in November.

Carville said: “There are no Republicans, it’s a Trump cult. The Republican Party that I knew, okay, those people knew, Rob Portman, Bob Corker and even Dick Cheney, they don’t exist anymore. Mike Johnson is literally part of a cult. The bad news is that your MAGA isn’t going to change your mind. The good news is that there isn’t enough MAGA for Trump to win. He needs to get some kind of traditional Republicans who generally vote Republican to stick with him. If the president takes them off. Tell these MAGA people anything you want. They don’t care. They are not moving, but there are not enough of them to win the general election in this country, and they are not growing.”

He added, “Mike Johnson is not even a Republican in any sense of the word. He’s a MAGA theocrat, that’s what it is.”

Carville added: “They know they don’t have a party anymore, they have a cult of personality. But again: the 22% of voters in the Republican primaries are voting for a candidate who has dropped out. They don’t feel comfortable with Trump. Tell these people: you can do this once. and in four years there will be fewer.”
