Top Republicans are taking Pete Buttigieg seriously as a potential general election candidate after his breakout poll in Iowa. The respected Des Moines Register poll, released Saturday night, has Buttigieg at the top of the Democratic pack in Iowa.
What they’re saying: “He’d be a fresh face with a message of unity and a more traditional Democratic program that’s not as scary to suburbanites,” Karl Rove told me. “His weaknesses would be in motivating African Americans and connecting with blue-collar middle America that’s dubious of any Harvard-educated elites.”
The article goes on to state the following:
- Others, including several top Trump advisers, raised concerns that Buttigieg is more talented than Joe Biden and that he will be harder to brand as a leftist radical than Sens. Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders.
- “Buttigieg might be better for them to win Wisconsin than Warren,” said a source close to the Trump campaign. “And I think it comes down to Wisconsin right now.”
