Robert Leonard: It Would Take Fox News to Get Rural Voters to Turn Away from Trump

‘This is just sort of a thought exercise and I certainly am not trying to provide advice to the Republican Party’


LEONARD: "But in conversations over e-mail with John Guida, my editor at 'The New York Times,' it was sort of like — he asked me, what would sort of — what would Trump have to do to make people turn away, rural voters turn away from Trump? And it got me to thinking. But, actually, I didn’t have to think very long. It would take Fox News to turn, to take some — something that Trump has done and make it significant, and then also for Republicans to recognize that nothing that Trump has done really couldn’t have been done by President Pence without all the drama."
