Howie Carr - the Boston radio host - believes that there is no other Republican who can stop former President Donald Trump from becoming the party's 2024 presidential nominee.
Carr said as much during an interview that he did on Sirius XM's Breitbart News Saturday.
There, Carr was asked about the Republican presidential primary field in light of recent events, including the first Republican Party debate that was held last Wednesday.
"I don’t think there’s any way Trump could be stopped at this point. I mean, especially with as many people as there are in the field, I mean, it’s just going to split it up." Carr said.
Carr went on to opine that entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy "is doing pretty well" and Carr said that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would also appear to have "somewhat of a lane" forward.
But, Carr said that he does not "see any way to stop Trump unless something unexpected happens at this point."
The show's host, Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle, agreed. In doing so, Boyle brought up the issue of immigration.
Carr replied by emphasizing - using first-hand accounts from his region of the country, which is the Northeast -to demonstrate just how bad illegal immigration has been under the watch of President Joe Biden.
The topic of immigration, of course, was one of Trump's strengths in 2016, and Carr seemed to suggest that Trump could end up capitalizing again on this issue in the 2024 election.
You would not find too many people, at the moment, who would disagree with Carr's statement that Trump is running away with the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
This is because Trump is dominating every 2024 Republican primary poll by a lot. Real Clear Politics currently has Trump leading his top rival - DeSantis - by, on average, 40.6 percentage points. Some individual polls have Trump's lead even bigger.
What has to be particularly disheartening to the Democrats is not just the fact that Trump is dominating the Republican field but that Trump continues to dominate the Republican field despite everything the Democrats have thrown at him, including the recent indictments.
Reports, for example, indicate that Trump just raised over $7 million off of his recent mugshot. The mugshot and the indictments, of course, were designed to drive people away from Trump. But, they are not.
Trump, at this point, is an established juggernaut, and this is thanks, in large part, to the Democrats.
