GOP Establishment’s Last Chance to Take Out Trump: Big Money$

Now that the political establishment have determined their media lapdogs are not going to be able to take down Donald Trump, they’re bringing out the big guns. Namely, big money Super PACs and various GOPe controlled special interests groups, who are preparing for an all out negative smear campaign.

Combine this with the shenanigans going on with RNC Primary rule changes, and it’s becoming clear we’re entering into the final pitch battle for the GOP candidacy. Will the GOPe be successful in this final push to take out Trump? Or, will the base finally be able to ignore the media and negative ADs long enough to make their own non-establishment choice? Perhaps this cycle, the GOPe doesn’t get their hand picked, “yes” man candidate, as they frequently manage to do.

“I don’t think Trump can withstand 10,000 points of smart negative in Iowa and New Hampshire,” says one veteran Republican strategist who is not affiliated with any campaign. “It would force him to spend money. That’s when this starts to get real for him.” (“Points” refers to gross ratings points, a way of measuring TV ad buys; 10,000 points would be a really big buy, meaning the average viewer would see an anti-Trump ad many, many times.)

“We primed the pump with our ads in Iowa,” says Club president David McIntosh. “We did some polling afterward. The ads flipped Trump from first to second place among caucus-goers and put a dent in his approval rating.”

McIntosh is looking for donors to fund an anti-Trump campaign that would hit hard in the month before voting begins. It might be a Club for Growth production more..

I guess it’s “Game On!” from here on out. :hehe

    Why do politicions have to play so dirty.
    It reminds me of a school yard that forms packs and clicks and if certain kids can’t afford the designer clothes the other ones wear, then they are not welcome.

    Putting out all these dirty smear ads in Iowa sounds to me like they are running scared and have to play dirty to get ahead. How sad and how sick and desperate these people are.

    Go Donald, beat them at their own game.

      I guess they use negative ADs because they can be effective, especially with the low info voter who is barely paying attention. Personally, I don’t watch TV commercials at all, so I never see any TV ADs. I don’t even bother reading pamphlets that come in the mail. They go right into the trash.

      The political establishment will do anything to beat Donald Trump, including lies and attack ADs. I do my own research on Candidates and pay no attention to any of these worthless ADs.

    Then I wish the rest of the population would think the same way you do. There are so many gullible people in this world that will believe anything they see or hear. Makes my blood boil.
