The demise of the GOP (and why)
Over the past month and change, I’ve watched various factions within the Republican Party have a meltdown over Donald Trump’s success in the Republican primaries. While he was once seen as a fringe candidate, someone who was running for to stroke their own ego and gain publicity, his winning primaries and delegates to the point where he is likely to be the party’s nominee is causing real panic. There’s now talk of a brokered convention, or massaging the rules to deny him the top spot on the ballot. The party establishment is horrified by him, not just because they think he’s not a “true conservative,” but because he’s saying things that are outrageous. In “normal years” those would be a campaign killer, but instead it only builds his popularity with primary voters. They shouldn’t have been surprised by that.
