Heilemann: GOP Convention ‘Floor Stuff’ Doesn’t Matter

Bloomberg Politics’ John Heilemann reacted Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to the division among the people at the Republican National Convention, playing off the idea that the disunity in Cleveland is a big deal. He explained, “I think it’s 100 percent true it’s obvious, I spent time on the floor asking, ‘Are you enthused? Is your delegation enthused?’ About half said, ‘We’re enthused, psyched to be here,” and about half said, ‘We’re not excited but we’re here for unity. We have to stop Hillary Clinton.’ It’s not unusual to find people like that at past conventions. It was a bigger proportionate, I would say, than in past conventions, not excited about Trump. I think the floor stuff I think totally doesn’t matter. In the afternoon, no one’s paying attention. You have a big night in prime time. You do well between 10:00 and 11:00, all this party dissension, who got steam rolled, 3:00 in the afternoon, no normal American cares about that at all.” (h/t Grabien) Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
