“Those people need to get on board,” Priebus told “Face the Nation.” “And if they’re thinking they’re going to run again some day, I think that we’re going to evaluate the process – of the nomination process and I don’t think it’s going to be that easy for them.”
And prominent Republicans who do support Trump are finding friendships strained.
[Former White House political director Matt] Schlapp’s decision to support Donald Trump for president has cost him friends in Washington’s elite Republican circles. Invitations he would normally receive no longer arrive. The vibe he says he’s getting is: “You’re out of the club.”He’s hardly alone. Old allies in Washington and across the establishment Northeast are no longer on speaking terms because one backs Trump and the other loathes the nominee. Divisions have run so deep in some cases that they could take years to heal.
This should be just another indication of the weakness of the current GOP nominee. Yet Trump is continuing to surge against Hillary Clinton – despite having been outspent by $100 million so far. This is the strangest election I can remember. Today’s predictions here at Election Projection show Trump still losing, but by just 38 electoral votes, 288-250.
