"Frank Luntz, focus grouper extraordinaire: "I've never seen anything like this.
There is no sign of [Trump's supporters] leaving. He has created or found the magic formula." Then they go to the focus group participants themselves.
"Asked about Trump’s proposal for a ban on Muslim immigration, 17 of the 29 in the focus group backed it. ... One big problem for Trump’s opponents: establishment Republicans hold no sway whatsoever with his base." Here is the bottom line: There isn't a single elected Republican in Washington with moral authority sufficient to denounce Trump with credibility within its base. Within its base, the Republican establishment is in such a state of disfavor that there's not a single one of them there who has the moral authority or credibility to be believed when he or she criticizes Trump or anybody else.
"They have squandered that." -- Rush Limbaugh
