Accoring to reports from VOX Republicans know all that. They've heard their party. They've heard everyone else, too — the condemnations of Trump have been a nonstop clamor, a roar that's drowned out all other political coverage. But Republican primary voters just don't give a shit. It's worse than that — they like that Trump pisses off the establishment. The backlash only makes him stronger.
The realities of an anti-establishment wave
Everyone says this is an anti-establishment year, but elites are just mouthing the words; they still don't quite believe it. They still think that if only the Republican establishment had been a bit better organized, a bit quicker on the draw, they could have kept control. The truth is probably closer to the opposite.
What would've happened if the party had somehow muscled out Chris Christie and Jeb Bush and John Kasich before New Hampshire — a level of coordination and control unheard of in modern politics — and circled the wagons around Rubio? Would it have helped him or hurt him to look so much like the choice of the establishment?
The Republican Party, also commonly called the GOP (for "Grand Old Party"), is one of the world's oldest political parties still in existence, the second oldest existing political party in the United States after its great rival, the Democratic Party.
