Insiders Predict Trump Will Be A Big Loser In November

Republican as well as Democratic officials expect Donald Trump to receive about the same number of electoral votes as former Republican nominees John McCain and Mitt Romney, according to a veteran GOP operative.

In an op-ed for The Washington Examiner, Myra Adams declared that Trump’s challenge of getting the necessary 270 electoral votes in November “resembles a tightrope more than an actual path” to victory. She reported that strategists of both major parties are predicting that the real-estate tycoon’s total will be similar to the 179 electoral votes that McCain got in 2008 and Romney’s 206 in 2012.

“Trump’s impending defeat is leading to a chorus of media speculation about his post-election plans,” according to Adams, a producer and writer who worked on the campaigns of President George W. Bush in 2004 and McCain four years later. “The two most oft-cited assumptions are (that)
Trump will not quietly fade into the background (or that he) will eventually launch a ‘Trump TV’ media venture.”

Adams explained: “Given Trump’s addiction to media attention, it is impossible to believe that after November 8, he will retreat quietly into his Fifth Avenue tower presiding over board meetings with no television cameras. After all, this is the A-list celebrity businessman who, in his first attempt at elective office crafted a simple message, tapped into national angst and galvanized a powerful movement of passionate ‘fed-up’ voters.”
