Too many Republican leaders and conservative movers and shakers are holding their noses and admitting they’re going to support Trump for president.
Politico.com reports the story:
“It’s a pretty simple calculus: Do you want to win or do you want to lose?’ says one Republican operative.
“The Never Trump moment is over.
“While a small group of Republicans has wrung its hands raw over the choice between the GOP’s nominee and Hillary Clinton, the party’s firmament – social and intellectual conservatives, the lobbyist and donor class, powerful operatives and outside groups – is increasingly getting in line behind Donald Trump.”
This is the new bankruptcy in America. This is civic bankruptcy, it’s self-government bankruptcy, it’s political bankruptcy, it’s moral bankruptcy.
Trump isn’t your run-of-the-mill terrible candidate. Trump is dangerous for America.
Can these powerful, well-connected, de facto leaders of a national political party really mean that it doesn’t make any difference who their presidential nominee is?
