Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said that his Republican rival Donald Trump is doing well in the polls because nearly half of Republican primary voters hate President Obama and think he is actually a Kenyan-born Muslim.
“Well there’s about 40 percent of the Republican primary voter who believes that Obama was born in Kenya and is a Muslim,” Graham said, according to BuzzFeed News.
“I could promise you this, he’s not gonna win 270 electoral votes,” Graham said, referring Trump’s obvious inability to garner votes with the Hispanic community.
“I can promise you that Hillary Clinton will clean his clock,” he added.

“There’s just a dislike for President Obama that is visceral. It’s almost irrational,” Graham said.
“He can’t grow this party,” Graham said. “He represents a level of intolerance and … cartoon policy that won’t sell.”
He’s not wrong because Trump also believes that President Obama was born in Kenya. The notion that our country’s first black president isn’t eligible to hold the highest seat in the land is racist. The public has also witnessed racism with Trump supporters and the Republican frontrunner has across the board support from every white supremacist group.
But Graham doesn’t stand a chance in hell of winning. We’re pretty sure Trump won’t win either, but either way, the hotel magnate is destroying the GOP’s chances of getting in a candidate in the White House. The GOP may never recover.
