The media is making a big deal over nothing regarding Republicans and Trump in battleground states.
The story of battleground states and a conflict between Republicans and Trump is newsworthy as election coverage, but it is not really about Trump.
The problem with this concern is that it is not exclusive to Donald Trump. If Trump is going to lose the election, then that will probably have some effect on other elections. If Trump is going to win (which I think is likely bases on record-breaking voter turnout in the primary) then that will have an effect as well.
Obviously, both parties have candidates in every national race that are more and less like the candidate for president. I assume that people who wanted to vote for John McCain or Mitt Romney were less likely to vote for a local Tea Party candidate. It is hard for me to believe that Trump is any different. It feels more like the media attention is being set up to try to blame him for all the Republican Party’s problems if he loses.
But, if Trump loses, will we ever know if it was due to his own flaws or because of Republicans opposing him.
One thing is for sure, wrecking Trump’s nomination at this point would be GOP suicide.
What should Republican candidates do who don’t feel, for whatever reason, they can get close to Trump?
They should ignore Trump and attack their Democrat opponents for ties to Crooked Hillary Clinton.
