Romney Uses Rubio and Kasich Campaigns to Continue Bashing Trump

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is not quite done with his anti-Trump messaging. After calling the current GOP frontrunner a "bully," a "phony" and a "fraud" during last Thursday’s speech, Romney is now offering his voice to the Marco Rubio and John Kasich campaigns ahead of Tuesday’s primaries to try and convince voters that a President Donald Trump would doom the country.

"If we Republicans were to choose Donald Trump as our nominee, I believe that the prospects for a safe and prosperous future would be greatly diminished," he said in the call, which was recorded on behalf of Marco Rubio for President.

Trump was not impressed with Romney’s speech last week, dismissing him repeatedly as a “failed candidate” and suggesting he could not even get elected “dog catcher.” This, after endorsing Romney in 2012.

Unfortunately for Romney, it appears last week’s address has only helped Trump.

More Republican voters (31%) said the speech made them more likely to vote for Trump than the total (20%) who said it made them less likely to support him, the Morning Consult poll found. A plurality (43%) said the anti-Trump address would not impact their decision.

Will his robo-calls have the same result?
