Zeke Miller, political reporter at Time Magazine, joined the Federalist Radio Hour today to discuss last night’s news that the Ted Cruz and John Kasich campaign are essentially collaborating to stop Trump from getting delegates. Domenech and Miller also discuss potential VP picks for Donald Trump and the differences between the 2012 and 2016 elections.
“Isn’t the best way for Trump to undermine the #NeverTrump movement by being more of a uniting figure or stopping some of these more insult-based attacks and instead making the case for himself as a consensus nominee?” Domenech asked.
Miller said Trump has missed every opportunity to put this race away. “He has won despite his lack of organization. He has not crafted some new way to win elections. He’s taken advantages of the weaknesses of the system… He has broken all the rules and is somehow winning despite that,” he said.
Miller explained some of the delegate math that we might see at a contested convention and how the vice president ballot will play a role. “If you are somebody they want to consider being the VP, being vetted is not something that is a pleasant experience,” he said.
