DeLay: Trump 'Trying to Convince Everybody' He's Winning

Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay says that as well as Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is doing in the polls, it may not be good enough to win him the GOP nomination.

"What [Trump] won't say is he's been at 30 percent, 35 percent for six months. He hasn't grown at all … [yet] he's trying to convince everybody that he's winning," DeLay said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Certainly he's the front-runner and people in the past have gotten the nomination at 30 percent, but 30 percent is not a win particularly when you got good candidates running against him."

DeLay, a Texas Republican and Washington Times radio host, said he is not impressed by some of Trump's breakout polls.

"I just saw a poll today that he only gets 11 percent of black support and 14 percent of Latinos and less than 24 percent of women. If you really look into his polls, he's not as strong as you think he would be," DeLay said.

So why then is he ahead of the rest of the GOP pack by double digits?

"The problem is the other candidates are not rising like they should," DeLay said.

The former Lone Star State congressman also said there is an explanation as to why evangelicals are flocking to support Trump, despite the fact that some Republicans say he is a phony conservative.

"When it comes to the evangelicals I don't think they're taking a really strong look at it. What I'm finding is that there are people that don't care about conservatism, liberalism, Constitution, God, anything. All they want is somebody to go up there and kick somebody's butt," DeLay said.

"That's why he's got 30 percent of those that normally vote in a Republican primary but if he can't get people that are really interested in putting up a good nominee, I think he's vulnerable."
