Chuck Todd

October 22nd, 2015

In TV political icon Chuck Todd’s speech to Morningside on Tuesday, he admitted he has no idea who the Republican candidate will be, despite Trump’s growing support.

Chuck Todd came to Morningside’s Eppley Auditorium as the guest speaker for this year’s Waitt Lecture. Todd is NBC’s Political Director and Chief White House Correspondent. A large crowd was in attendance. Half were students, the other half were Senior Citizens.

The audience applauded when Todd said his father was from Waterloo, so he can relate to Iowa.

“Trump is entertaining,” smiled Todd “Even though he slams me.” According to Todd, we are enjoying the “flare and pageantry” in the Republican Party.

“We’ve all predicted the demise of Trump,” said Todd. However, Trump is not fading. Todd said that there is growing support for Trump and that people are at least accepting who he is. After this statement, Todd mentioned, “Trumps not doing the little things to win Iowa.”

As for the other candidates, Ben Carson is up there in the polls with Trump. Even though those two are ahead, Todd believes that Marco Rubio has the best chance of bringing the parties together.

As for Republican candidate Jeb Bush, in the words of Todd, “Jeb Bush doesn’t understand the Republican party.”

Overall, Todd has no idea who the Republican candidate will be. He believes it will come down between Trump and Carson, even though he thinks Rubio has a good shot.
