Mike Murphy: “He’s a demagogue and a neo-racist and I hope he loses: he deserves to lose.”
Mike Murphy — who ran Jeb’s Super PAC — says that “if it came down to just my vote and I had to decide, I’d probably vote for Hillary and then jump in a lake out of massive depression.”
Appearing on With All Due Respect, Murphy added that he hopes Trump doesn’t win because he’s “a demagogue and a neo-racist.” Murphy gave Trump a 10% black-swan shot of winning.
Murphy says he can’t vote for Trump because “I love my country.”
MARK HALPERIN: Mike, I’ve got to ask you our three form-letter questions we ask every Republican who comes on the show now just so people know where you’re at. Who are you voting for in this election?
MIKE MURPHY: My current plan—I’m not going to vote for Trump, I can’t. I love my country. But I may vote for a business guy who took over the Republican nomination and was a far bigger patriot: Wendell Wilkie. I may write in the name of long-deceased Wendell Wilkie. I may write in Jeb Bush.
HALPERIN: Any chance you’d vote for Hillary?
MURPHY: You know, if it came down to just my vote and I had to decide, I’d probably vote for Hillary and then jump in a lake out of massive depression.
HALPERIN: Our second form question is: do you hope Trump wins or not?
MIKE: No, I think it would be horrible for the country. He’s a demagogue and a neo-racist and I hope he loses: he deserves to lose.
HALPERIN: And last question is, what do you think percent chance Trump wins is right now?
MURPHY: I think about 10%:, take a huge black swan.
