Mitt Romney has ruled out a third-party presidential bid and has stopped recruiting others to attempt their own, close advisers said Wednesday. The news suggests Romney has thrown in the towel on the #NeverTrump movement and resigned himself to the Republican Party’s nomination of Donald Trump, as much as he detests it.
That doesn’t mean Romney is happy about Trump or is ready to endorse his candidacy though. He still hopes a candidate will emerge to stand against Trump, his allies say.
“He’s very distraught about [Trump],” a Romney adviser told Yahoo News, which first reported the story. “He thinks Trump is this vulgar, dangerous, principle-less, value-less opportunist — putting it mildly.”

Simply put, even the GOP RHINOs saw the writing on the wall after Indiana.
And now that the latest two polls show Trump ahead of Clinton....Romney's not going to get any traction or support for further sabotage. GOP leaders finally wised up to the fact that any such attempt would mean the END of the GOP as a party.
To be honest, it's more than I gave them credit for.
