Republicans are realizing they’ve made a huge mistake

Trump says he’s a great negotiator, but the evidence says otherwise. You’re fired: Claire Potter on Donald Trump and the history of failure (“Crucified. What a failure. I like prophets that weren’t crucified”). Donald Trump has been a long time coming. Republicans are realizing they’ve made a huge mistake: The strategy of endorsing Donald Trump while keeping him at arm’s length is going as badly as anyone could have expected (and more). GOP reaches “new level of panic” over Trump’s candidacy (and more). Republicans nominate dangerously insane person to lead America, then panic when he proves he’s dangerously insane. Can panicked Republicans rid themselves of Trump? Here are 7 options (and more and more and more and more and more). The RNC can legally dump Donald Trump but it has to act fast.

Sorry, Republicans — you’re stuck with your nominee. Face it: It’s about the polls. Republican Party burns down one last institution: itself. Pundits lament loss of a reasonable, competent GOP that never was. Fueled by small donations, Donald Trump makes up major financial ground. Donald Trump’s campaign might actually implode. Ryan Casey on Trump’s speech when he quits the race. It's time for Republicans to consider the Gary Johnson option. Could a third-party candidate win the U.S. presidency? That’s very unlikely.
