‘An act of God’ is needed to see DeSantis or Haley as GOP nominee: Sarah Bedford

For­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s lead is too big, bar­ring “an act of God,” for any of the remain­ing GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates to have a shot at the Repub­li­can Party’s nom­i­na­tion, accord­ing to the Wash­ing­ton Examiner’s Sarah Bed­ford.
While appear­ing on Cavu­to: Coast to Coast, Bed­ford was asked whether an endorse­ment, such as Bob Van­der Plaats’s of Gov. Ron DeSan­tis (R‑FL) on Wednes­day, would “move the nee­dle” away from Trump in polling.
BIDEN MIGHT BE DEMOCRATS’ BIGGEST PROBLEM CONVINCING BLACK AND LATINO VOTERS NOT TO SUPPORT TRUMP
“In a typ­i­cal race where you have can­di­dates at this stage in the pri­ma­ry sep­a­rat­ed by 4, 5, 6 points, yes, this would be a con­se­quen­tial endorse­ment. Bob Van­der Plaats is sort of a leg­end in Iowa Repub­li­can pol­i­tics. But when you have some­one, like Don­ald Trump, who is 30 points ahead in the Iowa cau­cus, I don’t think an endorse­ment moves the nee­dle that much,” Bed­ford said. “It’s meant to help vot­ers who may be on the fence unde­cid­ed dif­fer­en­ti­ate between the can­di­dates, but it seems the vot­ers have already done that.”
