None other than Nate Silver, a top political pollster, says the GOP should calm down over Donald Trump. Maxwell Tani:
Nate Silver, the founder and editor-in-chief of the data-journalism website FiveThirtyEight, told an audience at an event in New York on Wednesday he didn’t think Trump would be the nominee because he was not conservative enough.
I don’t think that Donald Trump is very likely to win the nomination in part because he’s not really a Republican. He’s very far to the right on immigration, but he also wants socialized medicine. He wants to tax the rich, right? There’s an alternate reality in which he decided to run as a Democrat instead — he wouldn’t have to change his policy positions all that much.
For a pollster there’s not much data to back up his assertion.
