“Political consultants burn through billions of dollars and have no idea what they’re doing except to enrich themselves.
“They do a number of things over and again of limited effect: TV and radio ads, direct mail, robocalls. And burn through money they do. Jeb Bush’s campaign famously spent $139 million and he dropped out early after having won only four delegates. Top men. Hillary’s campaign juggernaut was defeated by Donald Trump who had no super PAC, no traditional fundraising operation, no campaign pollster, speechwriter, or campaign strategist.”
Unsurprisingly, political consultants have been heavily represented among the NeverTrump crowd.
