Of course, the vast majority of partisans will come around to whomever their nominee is, but almost surely there are significantly fewer Republicans who will than Democrats (assuming Trump or Cruz, of course, which I think we should).

    If even one in four unfavorables cross party lines or simply don’t cast a vote for President in November, the net consequences for Republicans are direly bad. And, candidates with high unfavorables among their own base are likely to also do even more poorly with unaffiliated voters.

    I don’t know if most Republicans would actually vote for Trump if he is the nominee. I have heard many lifelong Republicans lamenting the party’s suicidal tendencies at the moment.

    I know that I am not the only usually solid GOP voter who cannot support Trump or Cruz. Unless the Democrats nominate Comrade Sanders, I believe that a significant minority of GOP voters will vote for Hillary.
