The alarm bells are reverberating throughout the halls of the Republican Establishment as the realization has begun to sink in that their days controlling the Party are over. Nothing is more telling than the Real Clear Politics average of the four most recent polls of Republican voters. The Establishment’s favored candidates (Bush, Christie, Graham, Kasich and Rubio) account for only 24.7% of the polling results (Trump alone has 22.3%). The pent up anger over the abysmal performance of the Republican Party hierarchy over the past 27 years has justifiably reached a boiling point.
The current iteration of the Republican Establishment has been dominant in the Party since 1989, setting up a process wherein they have effectively chosen all the presidential candidates and steered a course of fawning cooperation with the Democrats. The responsibility for the current state of the country as well as its dismal future rests heavily upon their shoulders.
