There haven’t been many polls recently assessing how Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, often considered the most likely choice of a brokered convention, would do against Hillary Clinton, but Real Clear Politics
has quite a few from 2015:
So if Ryan, the VP candidate who lost by 4 points in 2012, goes on to lose by, say, 6 points in 2016 (the natural progression of the government electing a new people), would Republican insiders take that as simply proving that it was all Trump’s fault anyway and the only solution is, same as always, amnesty and more capital gains tax cuts?
Or would Ryan’s 2nd straight defeat on a national ticket finally get the message across that his Kempism
is increasingly outdated and that the GOP needs a new platform?
