Bill Kristol and other Never-Trump Republicans have done extensive polling and talked to potential candidates and financial backers about how to stop Donald Trump, according to sources familiar with those efforts.

They understand that getting on the ballot at this late stage will be a challenge but insist they can overcome that with the right candidate and resources.
Never-Trump conservatives search for alternative


I think the following comments sum up how elite "conservatives" see Trump versus Clinton.


“He’s an ignorant, amoral, dishonest and manipulative, misogynistic, philandering, hyper-litigious, isolationist, protectionist blowhard,” Mr. Vlock said.

Mr. Vlock said he might give to Hillary Clinton instead, describing her as “the devil we know.”

“I really believe our republic will survive Hillary,” he said.

It looks to me like Trump will have to beat both the Democrats and the vast majority of the elite from both sides to win the election. He has to beat the demographics too.

It looks like it's Trump and his supporters versus the world right now.

i think this is it.

the GOP, under the bush/rove regime, were 'neocons'. the base hated them, or learned to hate them. so now the dynamic is changing within the party. rove always said 'be unabashadly conservative', encouraging his party to espouse the extreme right. and it won elections for a decade.

and left a party in shambles once finished.

now if we could get the dnc to implode, too.

Gary Johnson is well placed to be a genuine alternative to Clinton and Trump in this presidential cycle. Gary has the opportunity to moderate the Libertarian platform and provide a platform for the party to build upon in future Congressional elections. By focusing on a issue like tax reform and ending overlapping/ineffective government programs Gary could pick up the votes of moderate Conservatives and the likes of small business owners.

Gaining 10-15% of the popular vote would generate backlash from the GOP and Trump supporters. I don't know if the GOP ever stopped blaming Ross Perot for the 1992 General Election result. I think this is the biggest stumbling block to the Libertarian Party jumping out of the blocks after Clinton enters the White House. The fact Johnson and Nikki Haley weren't even in the primary race mix shows how far the GOP has gone off the deep end.
