The number of Republicans who are either saying they won't vote for Trump (their own nominee) or are supporting his opponent is unprecedented in modern politics.
What do you make of this?
Here are some links to support this fact:

This is pretty amazing:

I make of it that Trump doesn't fit the politician mold and doesn't play the political games others do. He can't be trusted to follow the edicts of the Republican Party leaders and they can't keep him in check by withdrawing financial or re-election support.
All in all, a very bad thing for the good old boys cutting deals in the back rooms of Washington.
Maybe it's because they think he's dangerous and behaves in a way that doesn't support Republican or American values.
The Republican party cares no more for American values than the Democratic party does. But they DO care about the party and the power it wields, which Trump really IS dangerous to.
Agreed. Why do you think this if such a difficult concept for some to grasp?
Because they love their party? Because they think the party actually has the good of the country at heart? Because they love their candidate?
If you think about pet rocks sold so well we might understand better.
Ad yet thousands clap and cheer the nonsense produced there. Does that tell you anything about why a few Republicans are choosing the party system over a man that is providing a possible end to the status quo? Frankly, Clinton will be better for the Republican party than Trump will, and they know that.
Donald Trump doesn't provide an end to the status quo (just look at his economic team and plan). He provides a possible end to civilization.
What does his economic plan have to do with changing the face of politics in the US?
Yes, he provides a possible end to civilization - vanishingly small possibility - but Clinton provides a larger one, IMO, for she doesn't care who she hurts in her quest for power.
His economic policy is basically just the failed Republican policy of giving tax cuts to the wealthy, which is a function of paying off those who are giving him money.
Uhh...giving tax cuts is hardly "paying off" anybody, especially when they already pay more than their share and more than anyone else does.
But even if it were true, what does that have to do with changing how politics works in this country?
It's also interesting that Republican National Committee staffers are quitting because of him.

In addition toalltheother negatives that have been associated with his candidacy, the movers and shakers of the GOP are kicking him to the curve. That has got to be stressful for more than a few of his supporters...
Seems as if every day brings MORE DEVASTATING Developments for "Delusional Donald", but Honestly, what else could he possibly EXPECT? ~
50 Republican National Security EXPERTs say Donald is Essentially Erratic, Irresponsible, DANGEROUS, Un-Predictable & Un-Hinged ~ He would be the WORST & Most Dangerous President in HISTORY ~ They will be VOTING for Hillary According to REPORTs ~
Donald is SWIFTLY Discovering the FACT that Applying for the Number 1 JOB in the WORLD Called "President of the United States of AMERICA" is SERIOUS Business, not an Embarrassing JOKE as he treats it ~
If he's inclined to INSULT American POW's, or Inhumanely ROUND-Up our Hispanic / Cuban Population for IMMEDIATE Deportation, or Mock OUR Disabled Citizens, or Exhibit Blatant & OVERT Misogynist Tendencies toward Women of all "Shapes & Sizes", or has Insane PLANs to CRASH Our Economy via NON-Payment of OUR Debt, maybe Communist Russia is indeed a much BETTER Fit for him ~
