New Hampshire’s primary is tonight, February 9, and a few candidates have said that they will drop out if they do not do well.
Lindsey Graham drops of 2016 election
Lindsey Graham dropped out of the race on December 21.
According to CNN Lindsey Graham said, “While we have run a campaign that has made a real difference, I have concluded this is not my time.”
He was right, for he hasn’t been doing well in the polls for quite sometime. I think it’s a smart choice for him to drop out. He was a one issue candidate in a multi issue campaign. He focused so much on one thing, and that lead to people not voting for him.
My sister is a little sad about Lindsey Graham dropping out, but he was going to leave the race sooner or later.
Donald Trump… Meant to be?
So far during the 2016 election you may have noticed the front runners change often, however Donald Trump has been one of the front runners for just about the whole time.
At one point Jeb Bush and Donald Trump were the front runners, than Carly Fiorina and Trump, Ben Carson and Trump, and now Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. The other front runners go in a lead for an amount of time, and drop down again whereas Donald Trump’s polls stay continuous.
According to a recent poll Donald Trump is at 36%, and according to The Business Insider, “Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas had 16%, followed by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson (14%) and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida (12%).”
Sometimes people say, “After this Donald Trump will drop in the polls,” but he never does. In fact, he keeps going up! Nothing he says, or does hurts him. Is Donald Trump meant to be president?
