Will Donald Trump shatter the Republican party? Peggy Noonan thinks so, as do I. When asked if Trump could bring down the party Noonan said:
He could break it. He could break it. Imagine what happens if he racks up a lot of delegates, they get to the convention, it looks like Trump has won, and the party machinery finagles it away from him. Trump supporters would blot the Republican Party. At the same time if Trump waltzes to the nomination, there is a major sliver, and maybe not just a sliver, at the top of the Party that will start a Republican Party in exile. Or you can quite imagine that happening. So we’re seeing something big. ”
Our party’s in trouble, BIG trouble. More here.
