Power Broker in Early Primary State Says Something Shocking about Polls

It looks like some folks in the Republican establishment aren’t too happy that the presidential primary isn’t going their way.

Former New Hampshire GOP governor Judd Gregg, a longtime and highly influential Republican power broker in the Granite state, had an interview with Neil Cavuto on the Fox Business network. Gregg declared all current polling in his state to be null and void, and the likelihood of anti-establishment GOP front-runners Donald Trump or Ted Cruz winning New Hampshire as unlikely. 

That’s not all – or the most shocking – thing he said. Here’s the report from DC Whispers:

“This morning Gregg was adamant that New Hampshire primary voters would choose an establishment candidate to represent them in the GOP nomination process. He specifically pointed to the campaigns of Jeb Bush and John Kasich as those he approved of.

“He also appeared dismissive of the possibility that either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz would win New Hampshire.

“Then he dropped a bombshell that clearly had Fox Business host Neil Cavuto a bit stunned.

Gregg indicated it would be a brokered Republican convention regardless [of prior primary and caucus results], and from there a proper candidate would be nominated.”

This would be a process by which all previous primary election decisions would effectively be dismissed during the Republican convention scheduled for July 18th-21st in Cleveland, Ohio. 

Delegates would then no longer be obligated to cast votes as determined by earlier primary elections. Instead, Republican power brokers are allowed to intervene and attempt to coordinate/trade/cajole/threaten, a desired outcome. In such a scenario, a majority of the convention delegates could, for example, ultimately decide to nominate someone like Jeb Bush to be the 2016 Republican candidate for Presidenteven if he didn’t win a single primary race.

If you needed more proof that Trump and Cruz aren’t favored by the Republican party establishment – and that national political primaries aren’t fair fights – there’s your sign. Trump has a history in his business career of retaliating when someone tries to attack him, and we’re sure he’ll retaliate in spades if the Republican party tries to pull any shenanigans this summer in Cleveland.

Do you think that Judd Gregg will be proved right and if Trump or Cruz leads coming into the convention it’ll be a brokered (albeit extremely unfair) one?

    Judd is simply another talking (empty) head spouting off about what he would RATHER accept the reality of the boots on the ground. All of these people have vested interests in continuing their cozy status quo and everyone who comes out against The Donald is merely demonstrating their penchant for the status quo. There isn’t going to be any such movement at the convention in as much as Billary continues to slide in the polls and will until election day. Donald is going to go into the convention with something in excess of 1,400 committed delegates, will have the endorsement of virtually the who’s who of the Republican party and will be nominated in a unanimous vote on the first round. Anyone who thinks otherwise is is out of touch with the reality of the country. All these presentations about that people don’t support Donald are full of cra*. I don’t know one person out of 25 that is happy with where things are in this country and those same people don’t see Billary as the solution to these issues. Trump may be blustery and he may exaggerate his positions on issues, but I have ZERO question as to his patriotism and loyalty to America.
