Perhaps the GOP is on the verge of admitting this was one big mistake. Is the GOP About To Cut Trump’s Funding? Politico insists this is the case.
Though Politico has no actual reporters themselves, they are reporting that the GOP is fed up with throwing good money after bad. Politico says they have sources on the inside that say they are cutting off funds for the Trump campaign.
Since the Cleveland convention, top party officials have been quietly making the case to political journalists, donors and GOP operatives that the Republican National Committee has done more to help Trump than it did to support its 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, and that therefore Trump has only himself and his campaign to blame for his precipitous slide in the polls, according to people who have spoken with Republican leadership.
Sean Spicer, the RNC’s top strategist, on Wednesday made that case to 14 political reporters he convened at the organization’s Capitol Hill headquarters for an off-the-record conversation about the election.
While the GOP convention was only a month ago, the tides have turned greatly since then. This decision would have been much more beneficial if before the GOP convention.
Many tried to warn those at the top of the GOP food chain, but they were shut down. More from Politico:
In the words of one person in the room, the message was that the RNC has “all these staffers out there working and knocking on doors, with a data system they believe rivals what Obama build in 2012 — so it’s not their fault.”
Spicer emphasized that RNC chairman Reince Priebus has been working aggressively to coach Trump into being a more disciplined candidate, calling the nominee “five or six times a day,” according to another person present at last week’s closed-door meeting.
According to sources close to Priebus, the chairman has warned that if Trump does not better heed this persistent advice to avoid dustups driven by his rhetoric, the RNC might not be able to help him as much — suggesting that money and ground resources might be diverted.
Is the GOP About To Cut Trump’s Funding?
At this point it is going to be very difficult to win and many would argue he is not committed to winning. Those within the GOP feel that it is time to go back to his luxury lifestyle. They feel it is time to pull the plug now.
