With Rick Perry and Scott Walker already bailing out of the race for the Republican nomination for the presidential race, Donald Trump is predicting that Rand Paul will be the next to drop out. With no love lost between the two candidates, Trump appears to be celebrating the potential exit of his fellow running mate.

Trump tweeted “Prediction: Rand Paul has been driven out of the race by my statements about him – he will announce soon.”
I hope that when Rand Paul gets out of the race – he is at 1 percent – his supporters come over to me…I will do a much better job for them.
But Paul, even with his low numbers, appears to be enjoying trading body blows with Trump. In an interview Tuesday on CNN’s New Day, Paul told correspondent Alisyn Camerota “How can anyone in my party think this clown is fit to be president? … How did we get the race for the most important office in the free world to sink to such low depths?” Paul may just be the type of candidate to go the distance with Trump, choosing to let the bout go to the judges’ scorecard rather than throw in the towel. The votes will indeed be cast for the winner, leaving many to still wonder if Trump will emerge as the victor over the rest of the field. For his part, Paul seems to be tightening up his shoe laces, taping his hands, and putting on his boxing gloves; but some reports have surfaced saying that Paul is shifting his attention away from his presidential race towards his bid for reelection as senator. Trump is still leading in the polls and may become the eventual nominee; but many qualified candidates, with strong poll numbers, remain in the race. Do you think Trump is celebrating his victory too soon? Should Trump be so concerned with a candidate with such low poll numbers?
