Former Vice President Dick Cheney will support Donald Trump, he told CNN Friday, an important move as the presumptive Republican nominee is encountering intense resistance from senior members of his own party.

Cheney told CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel that he has always supported the GOP nominee and will do so this year as well.
The announcement makes Cheney one of the few Republican Party elders to announce their support of Trump and comes a day after House Speaker Paul Ryan told CNN he is "just not ready" to back Trump.

Welcome to the dark side, Mr. Trump: Dick Cheney says he’ll support the billionaire in the general election

This news has to be unexpected considering the following:


“You heard at the debate Saturday Donald Trump accuse President Bush and his team of purposefully lying the country into war in Iraq, saying, ‘I will tell you they lied, they said there were weapons of mass destruction, there were none. They knew there were none.’ Your response?” Fox News anchor Bret Baier asked.

The former vice president was quick to voice his feelings, telling the “Special Report” host that not only does he believe the billionaire businessman is wrong, but he also said he “sounds like a liberal Democrat.”

Could it have something to do with family?


Barack Obama often jokes in his campaign speeches about a genealogical survey last year that found he is a distant cousin of Dick Cheney.
Obama's family tree expanded to include the Bushes and the Pitts


Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton revealed to be distant cousins as family trees show they share same set of royal ancestors

Indeed. It would make sense then as to why Bush said this:

George H. W. Bush told White House correspondent Sarah McClendon in a 1992 interview that if the American people knew what the Bush family had done to this nation, they’d be chased down and lynched.

If your one of the most loathed men in America you have to know your support will do more harm than good. Trump needs to dodge this much better than he did the David Duke support. Duke, ironically, is the only person that has ever polled lower than Trump when viewed as a Presidential Candidate.

That is just a strange statement. Everyone has polled lower than Trump when viewed as a Presidential Candidate. Since he is, the presidential candidate. And this group of runners have now bowed out.

That's like saying every month has at least 26 days in it.

Trump would be wise to say that he neither wants nor needs his support

Polling is always done from the start of a primary to so see how candidates do against the other sides candidates. Since that polling began 30 years ago Trump has polled lower than anybody other than Duke. For example many of the GOP candidates who moderates and divided those votes 6 ways polled as being able to win in a general election. It basically gives you a view of the general electorates mood about a candidate instead of the sub groups voting the primaries. When Duke ran in 1992 he polled lower than any other primary candidate ever in the general election. Trump has come close to his number but, did slightly better.
