While Donald Trump seems headed to a primary win in NY today, the establishment is clearly but quietly afraid to be seen as embracing Mr. Trump...Today Rep. Peter King (R-Long Island) was on Joe saying he voted for John Kasich but was not endorsing the Ohio Governor. The same is true of other similar types I know or have heard of.
Only two NY MOCs are publicly backing the favorite son. The remainder are wary of being directly at odds with their peeps, so they lay low until the dust settles.
On the Dem side, Hillary Clinton seems to have too many of the insiders of NY politics backing her. All the electeds, Sharpton, fawning media, the unions, the June O'Neills and John Sullivans...All of them add up to 55% against the protest vote , the eggheads, the iconoclasts and the college faculty lounge progressives.
