Former US presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who has openly opposed Donald Trump’s candidacy, says it is very likely that the Republican nominee wins the presidential election in November.
“To be honest, it’s very possible in my view that Trump wins,” Romney said on Radio Free GOP podcast released two weeks ago.
“I wouldn’t think it’d be by a landslide, but I think he could win. I think he could lose, I think he could lose by a landslide. But, I don’t know which it’s going to be and a lot of that depends on what happens to Hillary Clinton. Is there a meltdown moment, or some implosion of some kind,” he added.
He said the millionaire deserves credit for connecting with voters and wining the party’s nomination.
“You have to give Donald Trump credit, he was able to bring a rhetoric and a style that he had perfected over his career to the political sphere and connect with people and become the nominee,” Romney said.
