Conservative talk show radio host Rush Limbaugh has been urging Republican voters over the past week to cross over and vote for Hillary Clinton in tomorrow’s Texas primary:
“I’m asking people to cross over, and if they can stomach it and I know it’s a difficult thing to do, vote for Clinton. …it will sustain this soap opera, and it’s something I think we need and it’ll be fun, too.”
Limbaugh argues that by the Democratic race remaining tight, Republicans will benefit as the Democrats struggle to choose a nominee. It certainly seems like an elementary technique, but given Texas’s open primary, prior Republican voters have every right to vote in the Democratic primary. Fortunately, I don’t think we’ll see this become too large of an issue as ballots are cast tomorrow, but the prospect of Republicans voting Democratic to upset the nomination selection is an ominous one indeed.
What do you think? – Would you vote for the opposite party to upset the selection process?
