From safe picks like Kasich and Jeb to far right conservative Ted Cruz to non-politician Ben Carson to a woman like Carly Fiorina.

Trump won. When it got down to 3 candidates with Trump, safe candidate Kasich and far right conservative Cruz, Trump pulled over 53% in Indiana.

Republicans are just fine with Trump.
No, they're not. Many Republicans - a huge amount - never wanted Trump at all. But he won the primary and only because enough Republicans perceived the other candidates as even worse. That says A LOT about the incompetence of the Republican party as a whole right now that 17 candidates were that bad. So then, even the ones that didn't want him only had a choice between him and Clinton, and as I said, they simply liked Clinton less.

Why, because Republicans are just fine with Trump? Drinking Beverage

Republican voters are fine with Trump. 82% of republicans have a favorable opinion of Trump. http://www.gallup.com/poll/201977/trump-...aign=tiles

Republican politicians want their party back. There is major butt hurt going on. Jeb is probably hiding in a closet somewhere.

Agreed. If only Mr. Potato Head had run... Tongue

Wasn't it just yesterday that you said that polls can't be trusted?

Because it's right now during the interim period between election and office. There is no longer a choice and he hasn't yet had time to screw things up too badly. Everyone gets a free pass for awhile. It's a poll and most people of the same party aren't going to vote "unfavorable" before he even starts no matter what they're actually thinking. But, in case you missed it, his approval ratings are a full 15% behind what GW Bush had. Not a good sign.

Well. The day has arrived.

Many said it would never happen.

Very few gave Donald Trump a chance to become the nominee and even fewer thought he could win it all.

In less than 90 minutes Donald Trump will be president.

Trump is in the limo with President Obama. The motorcade just left the Whitehouse headed to the capital.

Truly a historic moment.
