Trump Is on the Verge of Losing Even Republicans Better late than never: Like many aphorisms, it’s comforting, but only debatably true. Anti-Trump forces in the Republican Party now have a shot at testing its veracity. A CNN poll released on Tuesday shows that a stunning 48 percent of Republicans polled would prefer that the party dump Trump in favor of another candidate. The presumptive nominee maintains the thinnest margin of majority support, at 51 percent. Unfortunately, it’s the first time CNN has asked the question, so it’s hard to get a good sense of how that number has changed over time. Trump did win the popular vote in the GOP primary handily, per RealClearPolitics’s count. But he still won only a plurality of the vote, not a majority. http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/06/dump-trump-again/488093/ My own opinion. Dump Trump.
