E.J. Dionne: If Trump Is Nominated, GOP ‘Disaster in November Could Be Extraordinary’

‘You have a lot of people who are afraid to come out against Trump now, but they know in their hearts that if he is nominated, the disaster in November could be extraordinary’

DIONNE: "I still think that, because of the opposition amongst so many Republicans and the deep split in the party. I was struck this weekend, George Will on the one hand writes a column basically saying let’s elect Hillary, hold the Senate and we can win it back in 2020. Peggy Noonan writes the Republican base no longer sees itself as conservative the way Washington writers define it. And I think Republican politicians, yes, you have a lot of people who are afraid to come out against Trump now, but they know in their hearts that if he is nominated, the disaster in November could be extraordinary. So, I think there is opposition to him, people who are going to try keep him from taking it."
