Is Hillary Clinton afraid of Donald Trump? Why are Democrats already sounding the alarm on Trump? As the massive 2016 Republican Primary voter turnout sets new records, we observe that corresponding Democrat turnout remains anemic. Echoing the March 1980 consensus on the Reagan/Carter matchup, today's insiders are saying in public that Trump has no chance against Hillary, but are they afraid they might be wrong? Pat Buchanan now predicts "Trump could beat Hillary like a drum in November." Meanwhile, Trump jokes that he doesn't want to act so "presidential" as to lose in the manner of prior GOP nominees Mitt Romney and John McCain. Also, Ted Cruz busily rolls out the red carpet for Establishment figures joining his campaign, Glenn Beck invokes Mormon prophecy in Utah, and Cruz-supporter Amanda Carpenter sets up a "blacklist" of conservatives who have supported Trump. Are endangered GOP Elites now gaining glimpses of empathy for American workers who have lost their jobs? Is Trump right or wrong to respond to Megyn Kelly of Fox News? We discuss with Jennifer Kerns, Beltway Correspondent. With music and listener calls.
