Carville: Trump May Not Be Republican Nominee


Veteran Democratic operative James Carville made a bold prediction on the final primary night of the Republican campaign: There is a chance Donald Trump will not be the Republican nominee for president of the United States.

"I honestly believe this, I think there's some chance that Trump will not be the nominee," Carville said on MSNBC's coverage of the primary. "What we see and hear is a real unraveling. The news that came in that people not endorsing him and pulling back and everything else. The pressure on him will be enormous."

Asked what the Republican party will do if they decide not to nominate Trump, he suspects Ted Cruz will be nominated.

"I just really, really think -- from this is what we call in law school, a declaration against interest. I don't know what will happen in Cleveland if he's not the nominee," Carville said.

"I honestly believe, and I've been texting and talking to a lot of political people back and forth, they don't think I'm crazy. They think there's some chance it could happen like this," an ominous Carville said.
