Republican Party Finished?


For John, BLUFAt this point I see the race going to the wire.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Writing for Pajamas Media, Mr Rick Moran gives us "GOP Must Destroy Itself to Save Its Soul".

He starts with a discussion of a Washington Post Editorial calling for the Republican Party apparatus to deny Mr Trump the election, whatever it takes.  Mr Moran says that even if Mr Trump gets the nomination his negatives are so high he will not get elected.  Thus, the Republican Party will collapse. The final paragraph:

WaPo urging Republicans to embark on a "moral"campaign to keep Trump from the presidency is unnecessary. The Republican Party is essentially finished.  After the election, there will be some sort of entity that we will call the "Republican Party."  But it will be unrecognizable from what came before.  And whether that remnant of Republicanism can survive is an open question.
But, it could result, as well, in the demise of the Democrat Party as we know it, as a new coalition forms, taking voters from the old Republican Party and the old Democrat Party, leaving the Democrat Party as the Party of the bi-coastal elites.

On the other hand, Mr Moran could be wrong and Mr Trump could win it all.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

  One wonders if their Lordships in the WaPo editorial office would give the same advice to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, et al, if Ms Clinton was found to have violated a number of Federal Laws with her home brew server?
