Don’t Root for a Trump Primary Challenge

Rich Lowry, National Review

The contradiction in the case for a primary challenge is this: If it’s a bad thing that Trump is potentially a weak general-election candidate, as Trump’s critics say, then why make him potentially weaker with a primary challenge? What many of Trump’s GOP detractors won’t say out loud is that when they talk of defeating Trump, they don’t mean only defeating him in a nomination battle; they mean seeing him lose in a general election. That Republican voters would sense this, and understandably recoil, is another reason a primary challenge is probably a box canyon.
