According to a new NBC/Survey Monkey poll, Donald Trump still leads the GOP field even after all the blood, sweat and tears spilled over the weekend in the wake of the first debate and his tweet brawl with Megyn Kelly.
Today on his radio show, while speaking about how Trump’s poll numbers continue to rise despite the brouhaha around his comments, Limbaugh confessed, “I have to tell you, folks, it’s uncharted territory for me, anyway. I can’t come here with a firm, “This is what I think about this or that,” ’cause I really have to sit here and just observe more of it as it plays out.”
Limbaugh also added, “It has veered away from things that campaigns are usually about (i.e., issues and substance) and has become totally devoted and about various personalities, which, in the American pop culture is a winning formula these days.”
Unfortunately, it appears El Rushbo could be right, which in the long term, might not be the best thing for the electoral process or our nation, as we work to reverse the disastrous course we’re on.
So Rush offered this perspective and advice for Trump today:
I’m just objectively looking at this. Trump is popular for a host of reasons. One of the reasons Trump is popular is because of the positions he has articulated on issues that a significant number of Americans consider to be very important, and he has said things on those issues that this significant number of Americans happen to agree with.
I think it would be in his best interests to get back to ’em. It’s just my harmless, futile little opinion here. I’m not presuming to tell Mr. Trump what to do, but I just think you dance with the ones who brung you. You never forget why you are someplace, and he’s there because of issues. It’s time to hear more from Mr. Trump on other issues that also are considered to be very important, and if he does that, then he’ll take the rest of the campaign with him.
Well Mr. Limbaugh, we shall see if he takes your advice. But up ‘til now, it seems like Mr. Trump takes orders from no one!
