The GOP establishment should take a lesson from what happened to Bush, Christie and Huckabee and stop bashing Trump."

Alex Figliolia Jr released a new blog post pointing out that establishment Republicans anti-Trump sentiment is helping to propel Trump to the nomination to face Hillary Clinton in November as they both vie to replace President Obama.
Said Alex Jr., "This week we saw the desperation of Marco Rubio to gain campaign traction lead to the same mistake that Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and others have made – going after Donald Trump. At a campaign rally in Roanoke, Virginia, Rubio decided to hit back at Trump for the 'little Marco' remarks by offering the audience a joke about the size of Trump's hands. The joke didn't go over well and the result was that Rubio didn't win one state on Super Saturday."
The blog also discusses the decision by GOP insiders to put Mitt Romney on the stump to campaign against Trump.
Says Alex Figliolia Jr, "What seems to be clear is that those who dis Trump wind up losing traction in the race for the GOP nomination to take on Hillary Clinton and replace President Obama. Think back to when Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Mike Huckabee all came out swinging against Trump. In short order all were forced to drop out of the race because of dismal showings. While Jeb Bush faded into the shadows, Mike Huckabee's daughter became Trump's campaign manager and Chris Christie is now following Trump around the country, doing introductions at rallies then standing behind Trump, never shifting attention off the GOP front runner acting like a groupie."
Alex Figliolia Jr. continues by saying, "The GOP establishment should take a lesson from what happened to Bush, Christie and Huckabee and stop bashing Trump, but instead Mitt Romney, the twice failed GOP Presidential candidate, delivered a scathing speech followed by several equally as scathing interviews telling people why Trump shouldn’t be the GOP nominee against Hillary Clinton to replace President Obama."
"Why the GOP would think Romney could get people to listen is a mystery. What isn’t a mystery is the result of Super Saturday’s elections, conventions and caucuses. Even with the establishment piling on against the socially moderate Trump, the candidate managed to tie with the evangelical Cruz – each taking two states. Rubio, who seemed to be the preferred candidate of the establishment didn’t even break 15% in any of the states and neither did Kasich who many are calling the anti-Trump."
As it stands today, out of the 2,472 delegates needed to sew up the nomination, Trump has 380, Cruz has 297, Rubio has 123, Kasich has 34 and Ben Carson, who has suspended his campaign, has 8.
