Why Trump Won't Win

National Other

Calm down, everyone. Donald Trump probably won't even win the presidential nomination, founder of FiveThirtyEight Nate Silver says, calling the real estate mogul "not really a Republican." Though Trump is far to the right on immigration, he could easily be a Democratic hopeful, Nate says, adding Trump wants socialized medicine and to tax the rich. Opinions aside, he's still the current front-runner, leading in both national polls and states like Iowa and New Hampshire. Nate correctly predicted the 2012 presidential election, but doesn't have details yet on Trump's impending fall from grace, adding the Republican party's disdain for The Donald might spur momentum. Plus, Nate says the polls at this stage aren't very accurate, citing Hillary Clinton's ultimate loss despite killing it in polls in 2007. [BI]
