    Newt Gingrich: GOP Establishment ‘Denying Reality’ Should ‘Question Their Failure’


    The country outside of Washington, at least on the center and the right, has been increasingly alienated. It’s alienated by political correctness, it’s alienated by big bureaucracies that don’t work, it’s alienated by trade policies that don’t seem to help us and now, of course, now national security policy that is just a disaster.

    People look at that and say: ‘We don’t need to better manage the disaster. We need to kick over the table and start with some new fresh ideas.’ Trump and Cruz are the two guys offering to kick over the table. Carson offers it a little bit in terms of personal and moral authority that is very powerful.

    I think the establishment is trying to… is denying reality. If you have, between Cruz, Carson, and Trump, you’re in the 65, 70 percent range. At that point it’s time for the establishment to question their failure, not repudiate the American voter. How do you repudiate 70 percent of your own party?

    Under Obama the USA almost committed moral suicide. Our best hope is in the historical fact of the resurrection of Jesus.

    "Gingrich said the establishment will respond by saying “that we have to double-down, triple-down, scream even louder, try to get down in the mud, hope we can drag Trump down.”

    “Because, oh my God, what if he’s actually the nominee? Just because he has the most votes and the most delegates, why should we allow the American system to work when we want to throw a temper tantrum?” Gingrich concluded."

    Trump gets percentages in the low-mid thirties, call it 33%
    Cruz gets percentages in the high teens, call it 18%
    Carson gets about 5%

    Sure looks like 56% to me, not 70%.

    but how many of them who have voted in the primaries - have been crossover Dems or independents.?
    That is the reason why I support closed primaries.
