Remember all of those times Conservative Republicans have been told to vote for moderate Republicans “because a Republican who agrees with you on 50% of your issues is better than a Democrat who disagrees with you on 100% of your issues.”
Fox News Channel anchor Bret Baier said it’s possible that some Republicans will vote for Hillary Clinton just to stop Donald Trump from taking over the party.
“Listen, there are Republicans in Washington who are privately saying that already,” Baier told TheWrap on Monday. “Maybe some don’t publicly say it, but I think there are some who are that adamant about it who would.”
Let’s be clear, Donald Trump is no Conservative by any of the fourteen or fifteen current definitions. And if he is the candidate, I can see myself voting for Gary Johnson. But this seems massively hypocritical on the part of the Republican Establishment; no less so since most of Trump’s historical social positions on abortion, gay marriage, and so on put him in the “moderate northeastern liberal” category. And the GOP Establishment has lectured for decades that these are the types of positions candidates should have in order for the Republican Party to win.
