    The only time I would vote for Trump would be if he gets the nomination opposite Hilary, which I doubt, as others fall out and shift their constituency support to other than Trump. But Trump has served one very important function, and that is he has caused discussion of matters that previous Republican candidates have been to chicken to do in the past, fearing they may offend someone. I pray it works !! My choice would be JEB as I believe he too now has finally gotten the message!! I expect JEB would put some of the other candidates in his administration, such as Carson and Fiorina to give it some identifiable non-establishment “backbone”. I also expect that some of George’s “style” would spill over into a JEB administration as JEB is no dummy, and will do whatever works for the country. YLSF
