50 global CEOs were asked if Trump could win — and only 5 raised their hands
While at the Warsaw NATO summit, Kevin Roberts, the head coach at Publicis Groupe, a global advertising agency, asked for a show of hands from those who believe Donald Trump has at least a 50 percent chance of winning the U.S. presidential election.
Only five of the 50 people raised their hand, according to Business Insider.
Attendees for the summit includes CEOs of global companies, editors of newspapers and magazines, as well as finance and defense ministers from across Europe and the United States.
“I just said: There you all go again, guys. There are only two people in the race, so he’s bound to have at least a 50 percent chance. You don’t have to run faster than the bear — you have to run faster than your mate,” Roberts explained to the crowd.
“Denial is not just a river in Egypt. You’re Brexiting all over again,” he continued.
Roberts explained that Trump has two main things going for him: First, it’s Trump’s easy to understand message, “Make America Great Again.” Second, fear and loss.
“We fear loss much more than we look forward to benefit and he’s appealing to the great losses: You’re losing your women, your jobs, you’re losing your country,” the British Conservative Party consultant said. Clinton, on the other hand, isn’t exactly selling the dream.
“If you’re supporting change and supporting being pissed off and you go down the pub, you can say to your mate: ‘We are going to make America great again,’ your mate is going: ‘Yeah! Yeah!'” Roberts exclaimed, banging on the table.
“Mrs Clinton is going: ‘We’re going to bring government back, have better management, have healthcare. I’m going to improve this, I’m going to improve that, I’m going to tax this’ — they don’t care,” he closed.
