I've said this before in other threads, but it's inevitable that the Republican party will split after losing in November.
The data shows that the public is becoming more liberal, they're fed up with the religious, the gun-toting, the extremism of the Conservative Tea
The Republican party absolutely cannot survive after the fiasco of Trump. It's solidified the extreme right, proven the Tea Party to be the radical
cancer at the core.
When you have so many Republicans saying Trump is unacceptable, you have a major problem.
The only solution is a third party.
The US will end up with a three-party system of the Democrats, Conservatives (focusing on security and fiscal conservatism) and a far-right party made
up of the Tea Party and Trump supporters.
This would actually be a great result for the liberals too. It would mean the power of the Republican Conservative base would be split between the
mainstream centre-right and the far-right. The dems would theoretically be in the lead for a long time to come, until the centre-right party gains
support and traction.
The only people to blame for this are the Conservatives who have refused to evolve to meet the demands of the American public. Society evolves all the
time, political parties ABSOLUTELY HAVE to follow that evolution closely and provide the representation the public is looking for. The Republican
party has failed abysmally in keeping up with societal changes in attitudes and they are now too far gone to be able to recover that ground without a
massive shift away from the far-right radicals, the religious preachers, the gun nuts and the Trump characters.
