    LOL are you kidding, he's got the boilerplate paperwork sitting on his desk right now. He loathes Trump.

    Pence in, pick a VP like Pence, carry on... only thing went wrong is they forgot to fill in Scalia's slot w/ Garland during this session right here, because getting a conservative pick past a Dem Senate in the next congress could be impossible.

    I'd love to see the internal polls. They must be horrible.

    He didn't rescind his support though. Not formally.

    Just waiting for the RNC to pull their support and they're the only thing keeping his campaign afloat, it's already over and they know it so they're likely scrambling to save their down ballot tickets. It's just a matter of time.

    Cruz has always had the same position: It's his god-given right to be President. His daddy told him so.

    They already stopped presses on the Victory project, so they're definitely putting the money down ballot.

    It's better for the Reps if Trump loses by a very large margin, so they can place the blame soley on him, while excluding the party of any shame.

    On the bridge of the SS Regret.

    Well... on the verge of new conventional wisdom: always keep something back for the next leaked tape.

    Too late for individuals. But there's a good portion of the GOP that never supported Trump.

    Too many on record as endorsing and/or supporting him. Not to mention they helped create him.

    A Trump loss may move the unemployment needle up a notch or two. :D

    Word is that they are more damaging tapes coming out right up to election day which are far more worse. They are just trying to save there asses for the fallout.

    I doubt he's completely out for the count but if 538's latest trending is consistent with theirs...

    The Nowcast has him down around 12.3%. In the last few days he's been as high as ~14.3%. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Rumor is that NBC is sitting on tapes of Trump throwing the N-word around but are afraid to release them for fear of being sued. I saw it on Twitter so I'm sure it's true.

    Some very torturous language from various politicians who are trying to desert Trump without actually pulling their endorsement.
