I highly doubt that Trump’s VP pick will be Ben Carson who just came out and said that a Trump presidency would be disastrous for this country. In fact, I don’t think it will be anyone we think it will be period. Trump claims he has it narrowed down to five and he’s not telling. The only reason Trump would pick someone as weak and feckless as Christie or Kasich is if he wants a lap dog as VP. What he needs is an attack dog who will go out and do his dirty work for him. I don’t think it will be Cruz… Trump has maligned him far too much for that to happen. Although tapping Cruz would solidify his lead and crush Rubio. I guess we will see, but I think in the end that Trump is unpredictable and he will pick whomever will be the biggest benefit to Trump himself.
From the Conservative Tribune:
In a surprising new poll, Americans listed retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson as their top pick to be Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate if he wins the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.
According to WND, 11 percent of respondents in the Morning Consult poll listed Carson as their top pick for Trump’s second in command. Trump’s top rivals for the Republican nomination — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz — tied for second at 9 percent.
Another rival, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, came in fourth with 8 percent, tied with Trump endorser and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
As for Bush or Haley… not only would that be a joke, it would be a massive mistake. And if he chose Rubio, he would be bringing the establishment into his campaign. Joe Scarborough would be a disaster and I think Mark Cuban has already said no. But who knows? Trump will choose who he will choose and we will have to see if that is someone we can tolerate if he gets the nomination. This race is far from over. Cruz is hot on his heels and Rubio is counting on a brokered convention. The VP choice is the least of our worries at the moment.
