As a critical set of primaries loom, the Republican party appears more and more uncertain as to how to deal with the apparently unstoppable momentum of Donald Trump’s campaign.
The leading contenders Cruz and Rubio seem to be cracking in their resolve to campaign on the issues and have begun resorting to direct challenges, matching Trump’s highly personal tactics.
Some within the Republican Party have opportunistically flaked away to endorse Trump.
If this options board has any truth in it then the key issue right now is the Party endorsement, and wavering over this is creating massive problems for any opposition to Trump. Without a united front in opposition to Trump it is hard to see how Trump’s campaign can realistically be impeded. Yet the temptations to cling to his coat-tails for personal advantage are clearly too great for some figures within the party to resist.
