    Graham, Romney and others should remember that the Republican public selected Trump as their candidate whether they like it or not. Their dislike for Trump by association also falls to those who elected them. They should be careful. That should sound a bell to the Republican establishment that the people they are representing are a bit pissed off. They probably need to reexamine their platform and the Republican party's performance over the past decade and evaluate if it still serves the desires of the public they represent. I personally think it's time they get off their ass...they created this "Trump" situation.

    That may be true, sans the swearing bit. But when Trump smashes neocons, Americans should rejoice.

    Romney says he won't vote for Trump. Romney kissed his ass and chased his endorsement in 2012. Romney gave Trump the legitimacy to run for President.

    Romney is a clown...not very smart.

    As an investor, he purchases companies, then liquidates them for profit..employees be damned.

    Actually more GOP voters have voted for other candidates than Trump. So it,s not like it has been some sweeping mandate. Instead it has been chaos. If there were less candidates at the beginning, and if they had ran more competent campaigns, perhaps things would have turned out differently.

    Did you vote for him?

    Sure Lindsey Graham has done a lot of stupid **** and most likely deserves to be bitch slapped. However I thought Trump was going to run a clean campaign now?

    Republicans still haven't picked up what Paul Ryan keeps saying.

    SHUT THE F&$% UP!

    (Edit: Paul can see the situation, sees Trump's power, so he is not putting himself in cross hairs.

    I don't understand why Lindsey Graham thinks Trump will lose votes because he refuses to endorse him.

    Agreed, since he got the nomination.

    Trump is on course to likely gain more votes than anyone in the GOP possibly ever.


    Trump passes Romney’s popular vote total, likely to break GOP record

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/twelve-thirty-seven/2016/04/donald-trump-popular-vote-record-222510

    With his five blowout wins Tuesday night, Donald Trump has passed Mitt Romney’s popular vote total from four years ago and is on a trajectory that could land him more Republican votes than any presidential candidate in modern history – by a lot.

    Trump surged to more than 10 million votes, according to totals that include Tuesday’s preliminary results across the Northeast. That’s already about 250,000 more than Romney earned in the entire 2012 primary season and 153,000 more than John McCain earned in 2008.

    More significantly, Trump is positioned to easily pass the modern record-holder, George W. Bush, who collected 10.8 million votes in 2000.

    That presents an uncomfortable reality for anti-Trump forces: they’re attempting to thwart the candidate who is likely to win more Republican primary votes than any GOP contender in at least the last 36 years, and maybe ever.

    Clean doesn't mean pandering.

    Trump is not going to change his overall strategy to pull together the party. The party will need to rally around Trump and his message - the message that's resonating with the voters - or guys like Graham and Ryan will be out.

    They will either need to get on board or be replaced. The voters are not voting for Trump because their local congressman are endorsing him. Guys like Graham need to wake up to reality.

    And what happens if Trump loses big, who will be at fault. Trump or the party?
