A.B. Stoddard: Trump ‘Trying to Have It Both Ways’ with GOP Voters on Immigration

‘Trump is trying to have it both ways: Fortify the base, grow the vote with suburban moderate Republican voter’

STODDARD: "So it will be very interesting to see what this does to the polls; it is all intentional, it is a purposeful zig-zag to try to bring in Republican voters who voted for Romney but are rejecting Trump — particularly women with college degrees. (Who Romney won by 14 points and still lost the election in 2012.) Trump is trying to have it both ways: Fortify the base, grow the vote with suburban moderate Republican voters. We’ll see if the grab-bag works."
