If a new CNN/ORC poll is correct (and given the rigged polls utilized by the Democrats and the media, it’s certainly questionable), so-called “conservatives” may be planning to go a step further than sitting out the presidential election; they may be voting for Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.
The Blaze reported:
A new poll by CNN/ORC shows that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads Republican nominee Donald Trump by 5 percent in a 4-way race. The result is not surprising, given that most national polls show Clinton with a similar lead. However, one of the reasons for Clinton’s lead is surprising to some: 17 percent of self-described conservatives plan to vote for Hillary Clinton. By way of contrast, only 7 percent of liberals say they plan to vote for Trump.
In 2012, Republican nominee Mitt Romney also lost 17 percent of self-identified conservatives, but this was mostly offset by the fact that a much larger percent of self-identified liberals (14 percent) voted for Romney.
One group that has never materialized as a political force in the general election is the so-called “Trump Democrat,” a group that helped carry Trump to victory in a number of Republican primaries. The CNN/ORC poll shows that Trump receives the support of a mere 6 percent of Democrats — roughly the same percent of Republicans who plan to vote for Clinton.
It is beyond comprehension that someone who identifies as a conservative would actually vote for Clinton. It’s bad enough that many have refused to consolidate around Trump, at least to keep Clinton out of the White House, but to actually vote for her is the height of insanity.
This election outed many establishment-type conservative Republicans and their disturbing globalist agenda. There was a thread throughout the Republican Party that has been there for some time, and Trump’s candidacy blew the lid off of it.
While there are some conservatives that surely have a backwards sense that sitting out the election or voting for Clinton is somehow “principled,” the truth is exactly the opposite. Many of these conservatives are undoubtedly being led along, whether they realize it or not, by anti-American globalists on the right under the guise of “principled conservatism.”
This election isn’t about Trump — just like it wasn’t about Mitt Romney in 2012 or John McCain in 2008. The stakes are even higher this election, yet there are still those who refuse to recognize this fact as they bow at the altar of some elitist idea of what conservatism should be… all while the future of this country hangs in the balance.
A Clinton presidency has massive implications for national security, the economy, the Supreme Court, Second Amendment rights, etc., etc. It would also mean that this country sees no problem with electing a woman that should be in jail and has the blood of the four Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya on her hands.
Don’t forget Clinton’s sick defense of late-term and partial birth abortion, as well as her inevitable push for single-payer, government-run healthcare and a hemispheric common market that is a major step toward globalism.
The #NeverTrumpers have bleated on about who’s more conservative than who as if they get to decide for everyone what conservatism is; however, if they do go for Clinton, we’ll have much bigger problems than petty intellectual elitism.
If anyone thinks that Clinton is a better option than Trump, they’re either painfully naive or on board with the globalist agenda. You don’t have to like Trump, and there certainly is a schism among conservatives. But those who cry that Trump and his supporters aren’t “real conservatives” will have to ask themselves what that makes them if they help put Clinton in office after she tears this country apart.
If being a “real conservative” means putting Clinton in office, well, count me out.
