THE RIGHTWING PLOT TO END GRIDLOCK:

Insiders to Trump: Drop out (STEVEN SHEPARD 08/05/16, Politico)

[R]epublican insiders in key battleground states have a message for The Donald: Get out.

That's according to The POLITICO Caucus -- a panel of activists, strategists and operatives in 11 swing states. The majority of GOP insiders, 70 percent, said they want Trump to drop out of the race and be replaced by another Republican candidate -- with many citing Trump's drag on Republicans in down-ballot races. But those insiders still think it's a long-shot Trump would actually end his campaign and be replaced by another GOP candidate.

"I'd rather take our chances with nearly anyone else than continue with this certain loser who will likely cost the Senate and much more," said a New Hampshire Republican -- who, like all respondents, completed the survey anonymously.

"The effect Trump is having on down-ballot races has the potential to be devastating in November," added a Florida Republican. "His negative image among Hispanics, women and independents is something that could be devastating to Republicans. Trump's divisive rhetoric to the Hispanic community at large has the potential to be devastating for years to come."

The poor kids canvassing for Kelly Ayotte this week were essentially going house to house apologizing for Trump and begging us no let him influence our votes in NH. But almost every elected position in NH these days tend to go to the party that wins at the presidential level of the ticket.
