Popular conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt – who tied Donald Trump to the whipping post recently over Middle East affairs, then folded like origami when he was criticized for it – took to Politico yesterday to do the crystal ball thing on presidential odds.
Hugh Hewitt gives Donald Trump 25 percent shot at winning nomination
Hugh Hewitt—who (in)famously challenged Donald Trump’s iffy knowledge of world affairs in a headline-grabbing interview with the front-runnerthinks Trump has just a 25 percent chance of winning the GOP nomination.
He gives Trump about the same odds as cash-rich, poll-poor Jeb Bush.
That leaves a 50 percent chance of a who-the-hell-knows winner . . .
But still leaves Trump top-of-the-heap. Not to get technical about it.
Regardless, Hewitt also said this:
“I put Walker, Rubio, Fiorina and Cruz as possibly running the board in the next level. And I don’t know if the other ones actually have paths forward.”
That piece of punditry was posted around noon yesterday. Six hours later, Scott Walker dropped out of the presidential race.
So much for Hugh Hewitt’s political perceptiveness.
That’s right, Mr. GOP Hair Apparent – we’re calling you out.
