Why are supporters of this unhinged nutcase surprised at anything he does? He’s clearly mentally unstable and becomes more and more unstable by the day.
A wave of pessimism engulfed Donald Trump’s New York supporters over the weekend as key members of his statewide organization expressed shock at his attack on Ted Cruz’s wife and fears that he is behind an unsubstantiated claim that Cruz had affairs with five women.
“Everyone has been waiting for months for Donald to become more presidential, and unfortunately, he appears to be going in the opposite direction,’’ one of Trump’s most prominent New York supporters told The Post.
“We understood in the early days when he was trying to differentiate himself from the rest of the pack of candidates that he had to do certain things, but why is he now doubling down on that sort of crap, starting with his talking about the size of his penis and now ending up attacking Cruz’s wife and the stuff about alleged affairs?’’ the Trump supporter continued.
A second Republican official, also citing Trump’s attack on Cruz’s wife, Heidi, said, “I wish Trump would just shape up and start acting more presidential.’’
Good luck with that.
Both sources said they feared that Trump’s actions, which included a threat to “spill the beans’’ on Heidi, would likely cost him support among Republican voters, especially women, in New York’s April 19 primary.
Polls show female voters are increasingly alienated from Trump.
Meanwhile, Trump’s lead in Caliifornia, where the primary isn’t scheduled until June 7, has vanished.
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump holds a razor-thin lead over rival Ted Cruz in California, according to a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times statewide poll.
Among likely June primary voters, Trump leads Cruz by just 1 point, 36 to 35 percent. John Kasich falls far behind at 14 percent.
Trump, however, got 30 percent support among registered Republicans surveyed in California, according to the poll. Cruz got 30 percent and Kasich received just 12 percent support.
Low turnout could hurt Trump and help Cruz, the Times reported.
As Trump unravels further by the time the California primary rolls around he may have already been institutionalized as mentally incapacitated.
