“Everywhere I go …”
Appearing on Fox & Friends Friday, Judge Jeanine Pirro revealed findings from her segment Street Justice and what she believes people are really thinking about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“Everywhere I go on Street Justice they love him. I don’t care if you’re blue collar, white collar,” Pirro said. “You would be amazed at how many people will cheer on Rodeo, like, ‘Trump, Trump, Trump.’ You know, he’s hit a chord.”
Pirro seems to believe that at least part of Trump’s appeal is that he speaks about the issues the way average Americans do and takes on certain subjects in a manner that seems more common-sense.
“And when he talks about things like, yesterday the EgyptAir crash, he says hours before everybody else who’s so nervous, you know, it’s probably terrorism. What are you kidding me? You know, Americans relate to this guy,” Pirro said.
Pirro’s experience on Street Justice also seems to match up with new polling conducted by The New York Times and CBS News.
According to the new data, Republicans overwhelmingly want their party to coalesce behind Trump, with eight out of 10 saying GOP leaders should support Trump even if they disagree on significant issues.
His unfavorability ratings among Republicans have also begun to fall off, dropping from 36 percent in April to 21 percent in May, a strong sign that most Republicans will unify behind him as nominee.
Despite these numbers, some Republicans and conservatives are still hoping for a Trump alternative, or have yet to express support for the presumptive nominee. House Speaker Paul Ryan, for instance, says he is still unable to pitch his support behind Trump.
