The Republican Party’s Best Bet Against Trump

More by necessity than design, some of the leading Republicans opposed to Donald Trump are completely reversing their thinking about how he might be stopped after his sweeping wins on Super Tuesday.

After Trump’s victories in seven of 11 states this week, some of his key Republican critics are moving from a long-shot bet on beating him through consolidation to an even riskier wager on denying him the nomination through fragmentation.

Suicide is likely a better option for the anti-Trump GOP;)

        Which pompous progressive asshole?

        * Trump opposes cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid
        * Trump supports universal health care
        * Trump was critical of the Iraq War

          I refer to Oliver , he is just a mid Atlantic colbert with a fruity accent. Sophomoric humour aimed at very low information viewers

      John Oliver is as funny as a burnt paper towel.

    The Atlantic is left-wing media thingie these days, so their sources in the Republican party are likely less than reliably Conservative.

    Rats and donors on a dead end ship low in the water either sink or swim.

    If they were to succeed, a party name change would be in order.
    Something along the lines of

    “The Former Party Against Slavery But For It Now”

    would ring true.

    They won’t have any trouble finding a bookie to take that bet with good odds.

    Hillary won Iowa vote with a bag of quarters

  • Ron MacDonald

    John Kasich won the debate last night.

  • David Murrell

    I was Rubio supporter up until two days go. But after the Romney speech, I now support Trump. There is a body of mainstream Republicans supporting Trump, contrary to what the corporate media wants us to believe.

    If Trump does kill the Republican party, maybe that is the best thing he can do. Do I like Trump? Only compared to the rest and for the way he drives people I hate insane. The Republicans have become like the Joe Clark Conservatives, indistinguishable from the Liberals. In Canada the end result was reform, which changed the political landscape. Unfortunately the IS doesn’t have that long. Eight more years of Democrats (or Cruz republicans) and the US will be a failed state that is absorbed into Mexico

      Joe Clark is an asshole.
      Can’t count and can’t do anything else except say that we’re a community of communities.
