Donald Trumps damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their partys history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the partys reconstruction.
Ted Cruzs announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trumps choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified.
Hillary Clintons optimal running mate might be Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, a pro-labor populist whose selection would be balm for the bruised feelings of Bernie Sanderss legions. Running mates rarely matter as electoral factors: In 2000, Al Gore got 43.2 percent of the North Carolina vote. In 2004, John Kerry, trying to improve upon Gores total there, ran with North Carolina Sen. John Edwards but received 43.6 percent. If, however, Brown were to help deliver Ohio for Clinton, the Republican path to 270 electoral votes would be narrower than a needles eye. [SNIP]
Trump would be the most unpopular nominee ever, unable to even come close to Mitt Romneys insufficient support among women, minorities and young people. In losing disastrously, Trump probably would create down-ballot carnage sufficient to end even Republican control of the House. Ticket splitting is becoming rare in polarized America: In 2012, only 5.7 percent of voters supported a presidential candidate and a congressional candidate of opposite parties.

George Will is going to will himself totally irrelevant by Convention time. Why not call up your RINO pals like Jeb!, McCain, or PaulRyan and talk about the good old days where the GOP always lost, but with great dignity?

Poor George. Still hasn’t accepted reality.
It is really eye-opening how many of these establishment thugs and liars have filth to hide....they are really sweating Trump and the potential idea of the GOPe good ole boy network being broadly exposed. Bastards.
so conservative means NOT FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE
There are punchbowl turds and roadkill which
are far smarter than George Will.
“If Trump is nominated, the GOP must keep him out of the White House”
What is George Will advocating, that if Trump is running against Hillary, Republicans should get out and vote for Hillary, to keep Trump out of the White House?
Did he lose his mind completely? This is a guy claiming to be conservative?!
Meanwhile, George Will is silent.

If Trump is nominated, George Will and William Kristol must be institutionalized until after the election.
