Trump beat Hillary Clinton by 5 points in the latest Huffington Post poll.

The Huffington Post reported:

Karl Rove, who served as an adviser to former President George W. Bush, warned Republicans that nominating Donald Trump could be a death wish for the party.

In a Wall Street Journal column published Friday, Rove acknowledged Trump’s consistently strong standing among Republicans in the polls, and the impressively high percentage of backers — 46 percent, according to a recent Quinnipiac poll — who say they won’t stray from Trump before the primaries.

Hitting Trump for his antics — citing the Republican presidential candidate’s beef with Fox News host Megyn Kelly and insults of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for being captured in Vietnam — Rove lamented that there’s seemingly no line Trump can cross to lose the backing of his loyal supporters, who “eat up stuff like that.”

But in a matchup against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in the general election, Rove wrote, Trump would get “creamed.” He called Trump a “dream candidate” for the Democratic Party.

“Although Mr. Trump’s antics may not drive away his current supporters, they make him unlikely to win the White House,” he wrote.
