During an appearance on ABC on Sunday, former New Jersey governor and one-time-presidential candidate Chris Christie said that based on polling he’s seen, Donald Trump “can’t win a general election.”
“That’s not speculation. That’s based upon the polling that I was privy to pre-the 2020 election and what we saw actually happen in the 2020 election, the Republican and former staunch Trump ally said before pointing out that “it’s only gotten worse since then.”
Add to “what you saw happen in 2022 with election deniers” going down in losses across the nation, said Christie. “I think Republicans are recognizing” the impact of that, he stated.
“We could go through the entire list: Loser, loser, loser, loser,” he noted, ticking off names of defeated extremists backed by Trump, including Republicans Tim Michels for Wisconsin governor, Kari Lake for Arizona governor, Doug Mastriano for Pennsylvania governor, and Blake Masters for senator from Arizona.
Christie’s comments come after Trump kicked off his 2024 campaign on Saturday in what some described as low-energy speeches in South Carolina and New Hampshire.
