In the past two weeks, Republican candidates John Kasich and Ted Cruz dropped out of the presidential race, after the billionaire businessman, Donald Trump, swept the primary, defeating the two candidates by over 50 percent.
This leaves the Republicans with only one representative in which a number of voters refuse to support.
The Hill released a report on the names of 99 Republicans that refuse to support Trump including House Speaker Paul Ryan who said, “I’m just not ready to do that at this point. I’m not there right now.”
It seems that there is now a divide between Republican voters and the Republicans in Washington D.C, and Trumps anti- political correctness has gained the support of many.
“I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. I’ve been challenged by so many people and I don’t, frankly, have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time, either,” said Trump in a Fox News interview with Anchor Megyn Kelly.
The polls predict that in November, the race will come down to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton and Trump, but Vermont senator Bernie Sanders isn’t backing down.
“Finally, let us understand that when we stand together, we will always win. When men and women stand together for justice, we win. When black, white and Hispanic people stand together for justice, we win,” said Sanders in a Democratic debate.
Trump’s remarks about “crooked Hillary” are expected to get worse as the presidential race continues on. Both candidates have past issues that are continuing to haunt them: Trump’s tax returns and Hillary’s email controversy.
In the weeks to come, voters should keep in mind that one of these candidates will be the next president and should stay clear of the chaos – although it will be difficult.
