Keep in mind, Mitt Romney lost 3 million Republicans, who didn’t even bother to show up and vote for him because they did not support his campaign.

You can not lose sight of the fact that regardless of what you feel, the establishment is going to need this man. Even if he is not the nominee because he is bringing voters back in who have not been a part of this process… If you’re going after the guy they are now rallying behind, I don’t understand what they think is going to happen here.
