"At This Point" It's Over: Establishment's Last Hope Fades As Trump Leads Rubio By 23 Points In Florida

Tyler Durden's picture

It just keeps getting worse for the GOP establishment.

The harder the Republican aristocracy tries to derail Trump, the more convincing his victories become, in a kind of self-fulfilling, status quo-destroying loop, and now that Michigan has proven just how divided the Democratic vote truly is, it seems even more likely that the brazen billionaire may indeed end up taking the oath of office.

The GOP’s preferred candidate was obviously Jeb Bush. The last name says it all. But that crashed and burned in dramatic fashion and so, the establishment shifted its support to Marco Rubio.

That worked out for all of one caucus. After a strong showing in Iowa, Rubio’s star was shot down by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who at the time was still a candidate. Here’s where it all fell apart:

On Tuesday, the upstart senator didn’t even show up. Michigan was a disaster for Rubio and now, the latest poll from Quinnipiac University shows Trump beating him in his home state by 23 points.

As Politico notes, "Rubio's campaign is working nonstop to try and win the state. The Florida senator has essentially camped out in Florida, doing back to back events throughout the state."

But it won't matter. Just like it didn't matter in New Hampshire. Or South Carolina. Or Alabama. Or Massachusetts. Or Michigan. Or anywhere else.

It's over. The only way to stop Trump now is for the deep state to literally step in and nullify the electorate's decision on the excuse that Americans have simply lost their minds in a (hopefully) temporary bout of nationalistic, frustrated insanity.

Which brings us to a rather disturbing conclusion: democracy in America is going to be hijacked either way. Either Trump capitalizes on the country's deep-seated frustrations and fears to capture an office he probably isn't prepared to hold (and we honestly don't mean that in a pejorative way), or else the political and business establishment simply denies the will of the people and refuses to allow him to become commander-in-chief. 

Anyway, that's another discussion. The point for now is this: Marco Rubio is about to get "schlonged" in his home state by 20+ points. And that, in and of itself, says a lot about the mood of the American electorate. 

Trump himself summed it up best: "At this point it’s pretty tough for anybody to do anything."

What a difference it could have made if instead of his campaign slogan being Jeb if he had instead made it "Bush" and every saying it with a shit eating grin on their face.

There are 4 reasons why The Obama is flooding America with illegals'...

1. They are not white...
2. They come pre-dependent on the government...
3. They will vote Democrat...
4. They will disrupt the social balance of America...

I hate that god damn prettyboy, and Christie taking him down made for fine television viewing.

Not at any stage did I feel as if I could trust a single word out of Rubio's mouth not to come from his sponsors.

Please, OMG pretty please.  There still remain a few fench-sitters who need a good punch in the face to shove them off the fence.  Please dear God do that.

I watch ABC in the morning when my kid is getting up so he can hear me rail against the PC Establishment. The other day George Stephanopolous walked on stage with the 4 emasculating Good Morning America lady crew, and I was saying, "OMG, I thought that was "little Marco" for a moment." That's how far Rubio has fallen. Sad "little marco" is George Stephanopolous.

Hahahahahahahahaha! Too bad 100 private jets didn't land at Sea Island, GA, instead of 54...becasue then Trump would be leading Rubio by 45 points instead of 28.  But who the fuck is counting anyway!!

@SWR, "Anyway, thats another discussion."

Its a discussion we should all be having right now, because its a distinct possibility.

Can't stop the schlonging either.

But then a man with Rubio's lifestyle probably likes a good schlonging.

Stepanopolis and Charlie Rose look like Schmucks sitting there dumbfounded on those low-IQ morning shows as they jibber blabber with the "ladies" about the dog up in the tree or what Kartrashian was wearing last night.


Some people will sell themselves so low it's mind numbing. However, I guess if someone paid me that much to look like an idiot I'd have to consider it:

The Deep State seems to have fucked this cycle up real bad. What they needed was a Manchurian (Obama like) deep state fake Libertarian, who they could have sprung out a few years back like a Jack in the Box. Man, they didn't cover all their bases.

Trump is The Joker.

>to capture an office he probably isn't prepared to hold

And just who does this clown think IS prepared to hold office? Shillary?

What exactly makes one "ready" to hold office? Raping a baby to death on a stage in front of an audience of secret society members? No thanks. I'll take Trump.

Rubio is a pipsqueak punk boy. 

He needs to understand Miami for what it is. It ain't the rest of the US.

A buddy just called from Boulder,CO: he saw a young pan handler on the side of the road with a sign that said:  "Give me $1 or I'll vote for Donald Trump."

MachoMan's picture

What exactly makes one "ready" to hold office?

Interesting question...  one that is rarely genuinely asked or reflected upon.  I believe the quintessential trait of one "ready" for office is the humility to accept that he is not fit for the position.  As such, anyone who quests for office is thus unfit to lead.

BorisTheBlade's picture

So, basically none of the candidates are fit to be there.

MachoMan's picture

Correct.  Their limitation as leaders is inherent in their desire for office.

FreedomGuy's picture

I once read a psych study that said the exact wrong type of people are attracted to government power. It made complete sense. It is not to say that all people who aspire to power are bad but the bad are the most attracted.

It also reinforces my libertarian penchant to severely limit government power.

Your willingness to sell your soul for anything to anyone. Pant suits are optional.

The "clown" to which you are referring IS YOUR HOST, Tyler Durden.


A really good rule of thumb is when the article is not attributed to another author then Tyler Durden is the author.


Tyler Durden is NOT a clown.


Furthermore you really need to learn to read as Tyler wrote, "(and we honestly don't mean that in a pejorative way)"


What is a perjorative? It is like the adjective, "clown" which you used.


And, quite frankly, nobody is prepared to rule over the last days of the United States...not even Trump.


I know that you probably have been following the PREFERENTIAL SELECTION DEBATES...


I will not be as kind as Tyler.


All, and I mean ALL of the Beauty Queen contestants in this Preferential Selection have no capability of running anything and I would not select any of them, no not one, even to be a dog catcher....not even Trump.


And what is even more laughable is that so many, here, fawn over them like preadolecent girls.


JerUSAalem owns all of them.


As as the crowd chants






You are not sick of Zionist Policies.

You willingly select a Zionist to run our Government.

You support Zionism.


Did you know that there are many Jews, and many living is Israel, that do not support the Netanyahu Government or the policies out of the Knesset. They are as fragmented as the United States.


What do you do? It is the easiest action that you can take as it requires absolutely no effort.


Stop participating.


And remember...All Jews are not Zionist and all Zionists are not Jews.


Trump is a Zionist.

Transformer's picture

I have close friends in Israel.  I talked to them on Skype the day after their last election.  They were practically crying that the NeoCons had won yet again.  It's always a close race, money and power always wins.

Here, it's Perot all over again.  Bernie and Trump are no where's near as competent, but maybe the people will go for it this time.

Ha. Let me know when Trump is ready to stand up to Izrahole and Mossad, ready to tell some real 911 truth not just some hidden pages from a bad report.

"The only way to stop Trump now is for the deep state to literally step in and nullify the electorate's decision"

Laugh Track Deafening!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are looking at a contested convention. Great for TV ratings, great for dividing the sheep even more than they presently are. 

Their plan is working out perfectly.

Lock & Load

Demdere's picture

The rest of that plan is to keep attention off the Israeli-Neocons and associated mafis.

The problem those mafias represent, the very deep corruption throughout our society, e.g. the $2.3Trillion dollars the Pentagon cannot account for after spending and the fact that nobody has noticed 9/11 False flag that destroyed that evidence, will not be solved by voting unless that voting replaces the President and the entire Congress all at once with people who are not blackmailable.

Trump is a large FU, but not a solution.

"nullify the electorates decision"?  What's that?  Like jury nullification?  Or the Electoral College?

Yes those are 4 goodies but the real reason is this.... the Electoral College.

Voting in the Electoral College is based upon population without qualification for citizens.  The Progressives are depositing the illegals in straegic areas where they can alter the electoral college by increasing the population n those areas and get more EC votes from those locations.

Good. Trump will know what parts of the country to 'nuke,' so to speak. We can eliminate two problems at the same time - liberals and illegals.

Heterodox economics's picture

One thing that a President Trump, and a Republican congress could try is to pass a law requiring Voter ID for the General election.  Of course, if passed, it will be challenged in the courts.  But anyone can sue over anything nowadays. 

I think such a law would be Constitutional.  Alas, the judiciary has a bunch of hacks and at least 40 percent of them would find a problem with it.
