The REAL question is how many republicans will vote for Hillary if Trump isn't the GOP nominee if he gets the most primary votes and the party gives the nod to Rubio/Romney/Ryan/JEB!/or Justin Beiber instead.

You're absolutely right on that one as well. The GOP is screwed either way.

In any event, I see Kasich as the one GOP candidate who can draw a substantial number of Democrats.

MAYBE Chris Christie, but unfortunately he dropped out. Which is too bad. He used to be my personal GOP choice, but I'm not sure many Democrats share that view.

The hate for Hillary on the Republican side is greater and stronger than just about anything in political terms. They'd almost rather abort a baby than vote for Hillary.
Please cite some evidence for your bolded statement. I've been a D for a good long time and I follow internal D communications. I genuinely can't see this.

"Trump is basically a vile, nasty version of Romney. And far more unlikeable."

Sorry, Trump has been a public figure for about 3 decades now, and plenty of us formed this judgment of him *long* ago. Like a lot of jerks, he either doesn't know or care what other people think of him, and is genuinely unaware that the actions and attitudes he brags about are exactly the attitudes and actions that turn a lot of people completely off.

In other words, insignificant.

Since their own legislators are saying they would vote for Hillary over Trump - I would imagine quite a few.

Care to clarify that a bit? What is the number and where did you find it?

I agree,unfortunately for him he has been unable to draw a significant number of Republicans.
