The RINOs are allegedly considering forming a Third Party though a lot of the sources are sketchy, including the New York Times and Politico. This is putting Trump through the ringer, embarrassing him and making him swear he wouldn’t run a Third Party.
Chris Wallace was on Fox’s ‘Outnumbered’ Tuesday and he confirmed that if Donald Trump doesn’t move to the center and become more mainstream, Mitch McConnell will run a third party candidate.
Libertarian lobbyist and insider Roger Stone said he has heard it from people in the know and wait until you hear who they want to run.
“The big fix is in,” Stone, a former adviser to Trump, told WND in an exclusive telephone interview Sunday.
“Beware the ‘Big Steal,’” Stone warned. “The leaders of the GOP establishment plan to steal the nomination from Trump and to thwart the popular will, and they don’t care if they lose. Trump threatens all the establishment GOP leaders’ cozy deals. He’s a threat to the lobbying class. He’s a threat to the consultant class. He’s a threat to the globalists.”

“The GOP establishment would rather suffer through four years of Hillary – whose policies are indistinguishable from Marco Rubio’s or Mitt Romney’s – than to have an outsider be president like Trump, who is beholden to no one,” Stone insisted.
“Rubio has been given until Tuesday and if he doesn’t win the Florida primary, the establishment GOP leaders have decided to dump Rubio in favor of drafting Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential nominee who lost to Barack Obama in 2012,” he explained. “If Rubio cannot win Florida, then Rubio drops out and Romney is in.”
“The GOP establishment’s secret plan is to back Romney against Trump in the hopes of winning enough delegates in the primaries after Super Tuesday to block Trump on the first ballot at the GOP national nominating convention in Cleveland,” he added.
ROMNEY!!! Are they insane? Talk about giving the election away to the incompetent, lying socialist Hillary Clinton. How many times does Romney have to prove he can’t win?
It is believable that they want a brokered convention.
Politico reported that a GOP consulting firm has been employed to research a late, independent presidential bid amid fears of Trump winning.
A group of Republicans is moving quickly to research ballot-access requirements for independent candidates in case Trump wraps up the GOP nomination next month.
They are looking at an easily identifiable, well-known candidate.
“All this research has to happen before March 16, when inevitably Trump is the nominee, so that we have a plan in place,” a source familiar with the discussions said. March 16 is the day after the GOP primary in Florida, a winner-take-all contest that Marco Rubio supporters have identified as a must-win to stop Trump’s early momentum.
“It’s critical some serious attention is given to this,” the source said.
The document, stamped “confidential,” was authored by staff at Data Targeting, a Republican firm based in Gainesville, Fla. The memo notes that “it is possible to mount an independent candidacy but [it] will require immediate action on the part of this core of key funding and strategic players.”
It’s not known if these sources are accurate but the idea is certainly something the establishment would consider.
Others reporting on this seem to be speculating based on rumor and innuendo. Bloomberg put it out there in January. Blogs jump on it.
Are the RINOs this stupid?
The establishment is convinced Trump can’t win anyway and will destroy the rest of the ticket.
If they do it, we get a new party and they won’t be elite any more. They’re actually not elite now, they just don’t know it.
