MSNBC’s Charlie Sykes Asserts Trump’s Falsehoods Will Resonate Differently and Bring Consequences in the General Election

According to a report from MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” former President Donald Trump’s reputation with independent swing voters could be his downfall as he continues his path to the general election. This comes after he defeated Nikki Haley in New Hampshire on Tuesday, further solidifying his position.

According to contributor Charlie Sykes, the statements and actions that he has been able to make and be praised for in a Republican primary will have a different impact in the general election against President Joe Biden.

According to Sykes, Donald Trump firmly believes that he can say and do whatever he wants without facing any repercussions. He is under the impression that his actions and words will not have any consequences, especially within the Republican Party. However, Sykes points out that as the general election approaches and more people start paying attention, it remains uncertain whether Trump will be able to escape any consequences for his behavior.

According to the “Deadline” segment, Haley has received support from independent voters in Iowa and New Hampshire, the two states where Republican primaries have taken place. These voters have rejected Trump, despite his legal troubles and ongoing claims about the 2020 presidential election being rigged in favor of Biden. The poll results seem to validate the concerns about Trump’s electability.

According to MSNBC host Alicia Menendez, who was filling in for Nicolle Wallace, Trump is not altering his stance as he approaches the general election in an attempt to appeal to a different set of voters. Sykes noted that there has been a notable shift following the New Hampshire primary.


According to Sykes, Iowa and New Hampshire voters have been closely observing Donald Trump’s actions and a significant portion of the electorate, including moderates, independents, and soft Republicans, are being repelled by him. Therefore, it is crucial to shift our focus from the MAGA hardcore types, focus groups, and diners, and instead pay more attention to swing voters across the nation who may not be aware of all the things Trump has been saying and promising.

In his statement, he emphasized, “This guy will have their attention. Perhaps they have become desensitized or forgotten about him, but Donald Trump will repeatedly remind them of his presence in the upcoming months. This marks a new phase of the campaign.”
