There is increasing worry among Republicans, including top party leaders, donors and strategists, that Donald Trump’s erratic campaign is going to doom the party this fall – not just in the presidential race, but all the way down the ballot.
Key senators are distancing themselves from Trump. At least two Republican congressmen are saying they’ll vote for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. A group called R4C16, started by two George W. Bush administration officials, is urging Republicans to back the Democratic nominee.
A look back at Donald Trump’s amazing first two weeks as the Republican nominee.
There’s not yet a mass movement of Republicans flocking toward Clinton, but among the GOP the fear is: That’s coming.
And senior GOP officials are – hypothetically – exploring options in case a presidential nominee were to drop out.
This year, the threat posed by Mr. Trump compels us to consider what many of us never have: Supporting the Democratic nominee for president.
