RUSH: Sean in Jacksonville, Florida. Great to have you with us, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. Honor to speak with you, man.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: Four to six weeks ago, I thought that there was no chance Trump could lose this election. Now, over the past month, I just don’t see how it’s possible now. I mean, it’s not the media; it’s not the money. It’s the media and the money.
RUSH: Wait, wait, wait. Did you say four to…? Did you mean to say that you thought he could win four to six weeks ago?
CALLER: Yeah. I thought there was no chance he would lose this election four to six weeks ago. Now every morning when I wake up, the first thing I see is something negative on Trump when I sit at my work computer. Every single day. It comes from every single angle, and I don’t see how he can ever overcome it.
RUSH: Well, what does the four to six weeks have to do with it then? If you thought four to six weeks ago he couldn’t win, what does it matter what the news is today?
CALLER: No. I thought Trump, four to six weeks ago, was a shoo-in.
RUSH: No. You said… I asked you. You said twice, four to six weeks ago you said no way he could win.
CALLER: No, I said I didn’t think he could lose.
RUSH: Oh, no way he could lose four to six weeks ago, and now —
RUSH: — you think there’s no way he can win ’cause of what?
CALLER: It’s the media. It’s the media and the money. She’s gonna have more money and more media than any candidate ever.
CALLER: I mean, how can you overcome that? How is it possible to overcome that?
RUSH: Because it’s Hillary Clinton. She’s not liked. She’s not popular. The CNN poll demonstrates that. It can be done! You know, you gotta be careful.
CALLER: (exasperated groan)
RUSH: You gotta be careful out there, Sean. You don’t want to fall for all this conventional wisdom they’re throwing at you. Like, “Every presidential campaign…” I never heard it until this year, by the way. “Every campaign is won or lost in June.” Oh, really? I never knew that until this year! And they’ve used a little historical perspective to point out how Romney lost in June, and then I don’t guess any Democrats lost in June. But I just keep… It’s not. It hasn’t even gotten started yet! We haven’t even had the conventions. We don’t even know if Hillary’s gonna be indicted! Ahem. We don’t know who the Democrat nominee’s even gonna end up being here. (chuckling) Don’t fall prey to this! This is exactly what they want you to do, is to give up and to think there is no hope and to tune out and lose your passion.
You ever give up a football game before it starts?
Well, you’re a Jaguars fan.
Yeah. You might.
