Scarborough: Lifelong Republicans Tell Me They'll Vote for Hillary Over Cruz/Trump (NewsBusters)

Joe Scarborough prefaced his remarks this morning by saying "this is the sort of thing that right-wing bloggers get very angry about."  So let's oblige him . . . 

On Morning Joe, Scarborough said "I am shocked by how many Republicans, that have always voted Republican, that have said they're going to vote for Hillary if it's Cruz or Trump running against Hillary. I'm talking Deep South, Southern Baptist. I asked people who I expect to say yes, Cruz, go "hell no. No. I will never vote for Ted Cruz or Donald Trump. I will vote for Hillary Clinton."

Although Scarborough included Trump in the mix, his focus was on Republicans who supposedly wouldn't vote for Cruz. Asked "why" by Willie Geist, Scarborough said "too harsh . . . and they think it's an act."
