The question is who is Trump as a candidate and how will he be different if he is elected as president. While progressives will dismiss the outrageous fascistic sounding comments and liberals will rationalize them, the demise of the right wing is very much exaggerated. Yes Bernie has awakened a resounding activist consciousness in Americans that corresponds to similar activism and environmentalism around the world. however there is another movement that is well funded and organized... The right is not to be dismissed as Trump's success shows. Trump is supported by crowds of people who apply more wishful thinking to his statements than is wise for their class. The corporate forces are NOT afraid of a Trump presidency. That needs to be stressed.
If nothing else, the right knows Trump as a billionaire conservative and despite all the hand wringing of the republicans who did prefer a member of the inner circle but are fast making a deal with the upstart wheeler and dealer...they still know Trump for what and who he is. A billionaire oligarch. Only the small details need be worked out. Who gets appointed to what being prioritized before anointing Trump with the republican imprimatur!
Once those incidentals are worked out then the republican establishment will enlist in the pro Trump camp but only up to a point as yet. A bit of wait and see just in case but enough support to be there as Hillary falters. They know Trump can beat her but they are still wondering if they want him to win. The republicans are okay with Hillary with minor exceptions. She is a moderate republican but generally they prefer a more conservative republican in office.
They just aren't sure who Trump will be if he gets in. The Repubs don't want a wall! They don't want to talk to Putin either. But Trump can beat Hillary and that is an irresistible urge that is gnawing at the Republican Party... The presidency is within reach once again if Hillary runs. They fear running against Bernie because they see that people will vote for him in overwhelming numbers but Hillary is far more beatable. The know that the Dems would be crushed if she runs and then loses. What a delectable treat for republicans to savor if that would come to pass.
Here then we stand watching republicans wanting Hillary to run because they see she Is the weaker candidate and she isn't the threat that Bernie is. She is also tolerable in case Trump did lose.
Lol. Hillary the clear choice of republicans either way.
