ANALYSIS/OPINION:

There’s a name — or at least there should be — for conservatives vowing never to vote for businessman Donald Trump if he becomes the GOP nominee: Republicans for Hillary Clinton.

Conservative radio talk-show host Mark Levin said Friday: “I’m not voting for Donald Trump. Period. … These bully, dirty tricks, Nixonian tactics, they’re only going to backfire. So, count me as never Trump.

“And if they [Trump campaign] piss me off one more time, I’m going to urge millions and millions of you, should he get the nomination, not to vote for him either,” Mr. Levin said on his talk show.

By making the statement, Mr. Levin is going to give cover for many other conservatives to stay home in November, and the result would be devastating — it would put Hillary Clinton in the White House.

Tim Miller, spokesman for an anti-Trump PAC and former communications director for Jeb Bush, essentially said the same thing Monday to radio host Glenn Thrush, even taking it a step further.



Mr. Miller said although Mrs. Clinton would be “America’s worst president ever,” he and other conservatives would accept that end instead of the “danger to the Republic,” a Trump presidency poses. He suggesting backing a third-party candidate.

After eight years surviving under the liberal policies of President Obama, whatever state the Republican Party and conservative values are in will surely weaken under four years of Mrs. Clinton’s rule.

With the Supreme Court in the balance, the federal deficit ballooning, executive powers expanding, and religious liberty under threat — tell me how Mrs. Clinton will be a Republican savior. Tell me how she’ll faithfully execute the Constitution.

Under a Clinton administration, conservative groups won’t even be in the conversation.

I beg these conservative activists to make their case and be honest about it. If Hillary Clinton is better for the Republican Party than Donald Trump, please, tell me. Praise her values, join her team and make her case.

Because your wounded egos and prideful ideology aren’t doing it. They aren’t going to save the Republican Party.
