Sharyl Attkisson: 'Major Disconnect' Between Insiders Like Karl Rove and Voters

The rise of outsiders and rejection of establishment candidates in the GOP presidential race shows there is a "major disconnect" between voters and Republican powerhouses like Karl Rove, award-winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson tells Newsmax TV.

Attkisson said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show," that Republicans — and even some Democrats and Independents — want to keep writing off GOP front-runner Donald Trump, who just won the New Hampshire primary, as flash in the pan who’ll start dropping in the polls.

That’s not happening.

"It continues to be a disconnect it seems to me between a majority of at least the Republican Party and some independents and Democrats as well. [They] keep commenting on television," said Attkisson, host of the syndicated news program "Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson."

An example of that establishment is Rove, a veteran political consultant and policy advisor, who served as senior advisor and deputy chief of staff in the George W. Bush administration, and, at one point, was seen as a GOP kingmaker.

Attkisson also said that all too often, "insider" talking heads giving their opinions about candidates try to pass themselves off as "independent players" on the various TV news shows when they are actually pushing a political agenda.

"I still see everywhere I go — from people I speak with, Democrats, Republicans, independents, different races, men and women — there is support for Donald Trump, more support than you have been led to believe … when you're watching the average pundits in news programs," she said.
