Republican voters could not be more clear. About 80% of those with an opinion support either Donald Trump or TEA Party favorite Ted Cruz. They have a clear mandate for drastic change.
If nothing changes and Trump doesn’t withdraw (voluntarily or otherwise), imagine what the Convention in Cleveland will look like. Will Karl Rove, Glenn Beck, Fox News and National Review embrace the man they despise? – and smile while the red white and blue balloons are dropping? It seems unlikely. Ted Cruz is not going to form an independent “Conservative” party led by the people in the GOP who hate his guts… Trump may end up being the leader of a party with nobody left. What happens to Congress?
Hillary is smiling. Checkmate in 4 moves.
