IT'S THE GROWN-UP PARTY:

The Insiders: Bush, Kasich and Rubio are stronger than you think (Ed Rogers October 21, 2015, Washington Post)

Are Republicans suddenly gullible? In what universe does Donald Trump seem like any of these Republican leaders? He is a Manhattan billionaire who has no credible claim to any real Republican roots. His positions are all contrived for the day and they lack substance. He has a long history of contributing to Democratic candidates and causes. What does a RINO look like, if not that? Unless the Republican faithful have completely changed their stripes or a bunch of new voters are going to show up in the GOP primaries to elect someone like Donald Trump against a field of credentialed, serious candidates, I think it is very unlikely Trump will be our party's nominee. Republicans are going to nominate a Republican they can count on.

Anyway, could Trump win some primaries with a plurality? That is, even with such a divided field, could he win with, say, 24 percent? Again, I think that is unlikely because of the Republican culture. The Republican front-runner may have to contend with an anti-establishment or far-right candidate, but, again, as recent history shows, at the end of the day Republicans consistently vote for good Republicans.
