Can the Republicans Get Any Whiter? Or Zenophobic? Or...?

Yes. Yes, they can. And it's not a political winner.

As Jeb Bush said recently, this is a fantasy that Trump could never
deliver, along with the rest of his nonsense. And there's hell to pay.

The recent Pew Poll paints a bleak picture of Donald Trump's chances:
Republicans remain skeptical that their party will unite behind their presumptive nominee.  Just  38% of Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters say the party will “solidly unite” behind Trump; 54% say disagreements in the party will keep many Republicans from supporting him. These views are virtually unchanged since March, amid the GOP primary contest. By contrast, 72% of Democratic voters say their party will solid unite behind Clinton; in March, 64% expected their party to unite behind Clinton if she became the nominee.
So, Trump is a divider, not a uniter. But we knew that. The wall he's building is between himself and the voters he needs. Hmm. Go figure.

Oh, and who wants to bet that the Republican National Convention will aleviate this problem?
