¿Comenzó la avalancha?
Cuando un congresista del Imperio, días después de recomendar a su electorado que no vote al candidato de su propio partido, cambia súbitamente de opinión y decide votarlo, podemos estar seguros de una cosa: vio encuestas en serio, no la sanata estadística que se arroja estos días como pochoclo para consumo de los ya convencidos. Se viene hablando, por el momento en voz baja, de la Avalancha Trump. ¿Será cierto? Varios motivos explicarían el fenómeno, entre los cuales la podredumbre en torno a Hillary no es uno menor. Sobresalen, sin embargo, otros dos: (1) Trump sería el candidato anti-sistema; (2) Trump garantiza que no habrá guerra con Rusia. Leemos en Zero Hedge de hoy:
Título: Top Republican Congressman Says He'll Vote For Trump Weeks After Dropping His Support
Texto: Just three weeks ago, after the infamous 2005 tape of Donald Trump's lewd remarks about women publicly emerged, one of the more prominent republicans, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) abandoned his endorsement of Trump “I’m out,” he told Fox 13 in Salt Lake City on Oct. 7. “I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. “It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine,” Chaffetz added.
It did not take him long to change his mind and last night Chafetz announced on Twitter that he will be voting for Donald Trump.
"I will not defend or endorse @realDonaldTrump, but I am voting for him. HRC is that bad. HRC is bad for the USA," he wrote on Twitter, referring to Hillary Clinton.
Chaffetz's fellow Utahn, Sen. Mike Lee, called on Trump to withdraw from the presidential race after the recording was made public.
Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has long been a foe of Clinton.
He said Wednesday that he expects years' worth of further hearings on Clinton's private email server use while secretary of State.
Chaffetz was the first of several GOP congressmen who yanked their endorsement from Trump after the recording’s publication.
Other prominent republicans who tacitly pulled their support include House Speaker Paul Ryan who vowed he would neither campaign for nor defend Trump ahead of Election Day.
Eleven women have since accused Trump of kissing or groping them without permission before his entrance into politics. Trump has fiercely denied the allegations, accusing the media of fixating on them to boost Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
