Here's a plan:

Rubio drops out now, gives his support for Cruz.

This might help Cruz win the nomination and save the Republican Party and the country from Trump.

If it worked and Cruz wins the election, Rubio would be the "Hero" of the Republican Party and his future bright.

First of all, Cruz can't win.

Secondly, tell me when in history does the person backing out with very little momentum become the hero? No one will remember him for "sacrificing" himself, let alone see him as a hero.

Yes, because a dominionist freak show is so much better.

The GOP News Thread

I think there's decent reason to expect that Cruz will be far less tolerable than Trump.

Trump is all bluster, right now. Don't get me wrong, the 20% chance that he'll actually live up to his campaign promises is more than enough to terrify me. But with his off the record NYT interview implying that his actual immigration policy will be milder, his comments about the need for compromise and flexibility, and his focus on "making the deal," one wouldn't be crazy to assume that President Trump has at least some chance of governing moderately.

President Cruz has 0% chance of governing moderately. From the very start of his stint in the public eye, the government shut down, every single word out of Cruz's mouth in relation to the government can be translated into "we don't need water let this mufucka BURN!1!1!"

Cruz has already proved that he does, indeed, govern like he promises he will. And when you look at some of Trump's more frightening proposals (deportations, war crimes against ISIS, banning Muslim refugees), Cruz is never the one on the opposite side of the issue.

The GOP is going downhill in the prediction markets - only 31% chance of winning the presidency (down from 40% a couple of weeks ago).

What does everyone think would be the best matchup for the GOP?

It's not going to happen now, but a Rubio/Kasich ticket going up against Clinton would've favored the GOP, I think.

Rubio has zero chance

the brokered convention would be too stupid to try and pull off

but there is always hope


you should be asking, who would be a good VP pick for Trump

seriously to answer your question, in this political climate, Trump has the best chance, he has a even chance again Hillary and a very good chance against Bernie

and the current match up polls don't mean shit

But considering Donald isn't really winning majority of votes in any states, I think it's more likely than we think.

Tough to win majority with 3-4 candidates still in race....and none are favorable to the public.

Yet another "Family Values" GOP leader falls:

Ah yes, the old "my phone was stolen for one day, therefore the video showing me cheating on my wife is a hoax" excuse.

Well, being that guy who accidentally hit "reply all" is clearly more embarrassing than cheating.
