The Entente Between Trump and the Republican Elite

Robert Kuttner | Posted 05.15.2016 | Politics
Robert Kuttner

Why are Republican leaders rallying behind a figure who they hate, a man who has been mocking and vilifying them all year? Because they, too, are utter opportunists. The stop-Trump movement failed. Trump has demonstrated appeal to constituencies who Republicans have long been trying to rally. He has been underrated ever since he declared for the presidency. And given the right set of accidents (like a major terrorist attack or a major Clinton stumble), he just might win. But for all of their blather about abuses of executive power and reverence for the Constitution, Republicans who put principle ahead of expediency are few and far between. And their view of what's expedient should tell us something.
