Trump wouldn’t beat Biden, says Sununu
“It cannot be done. He might get the nomination, but he can’t get [it] done,” Sununu said of the former president.
Sununu, who has been sharply critical of Biden’s handling of the economy, said Republicans need to nominate the most eligible conservative they can find.
He said a strong GOP field was emerging and he was “thinking about that too” when it came to entering the race himself.
“Definitely thinking about it, having these conversations,” Sununu said, “but at the end of the day, you’re going to have a lot of Republicans coming into this race. They’re all really good people; they’re really good candidates. You got Nikki Haley and Mike Pompeo and the Governor [Ron] DeSantis and a lot of people coming in.
Speaking later on the same program, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie agreed with Sununu that Trump was unlikely to beat Biden.
“I don’t think so,” he said during a panel discussion.
The Post-ABC poll gave Trump a 48-44 advantage over Biden. But it also showed that a majority of Democrats don’t want Biden to be the Democratic nominee in 2024 and that a plurality of Republicans feel the same way about Trump. The poll, released two days before Biden’s State of the Union address, was conducted from Jan. 27 to Feb. 27. 1 among a national sample of 1,003 US adults and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
