Former presidents

George H.W. Bush (?) -- Kathleen Kennedy Townsend said in a Facebook post that Bush told her this in-person. The president's office isn't confirming it, but she stands by it. "That’s what he said," she told Politico.

Members of Congress

Rep. Richard Hanna (N.Y.), a moderate Republican who is retiring this year, told Syracuse.com that he will support Clinton and that Trump is unfit to lead. He cited Trump's criticism of Khizr Khan. "I think Trump is a national embarrassment," Hanna said. "Is he really the guy you want to have the nuclear codes?"

Former Republican elected officials

John Warner, former senator from Virginia -- “Loose lips sink ships. Got that, Trump? Loose lips sink ships." Warner added: "You can’t pull up a quick text like ‘National Security for Dummies.'"

Chris Shays, former congressman from Connecticut — "I have friends who are up for office and they say, you know, if you don't support Donald Trump, you're hurting us because then we have to answer the question. And now I'm going one step further. So I am hurting them. But, you know, there's a time when you put your country first."

1. With the way Nicole Wallace has been talking I would think George HW is not the Bush

Voting for Hillary. Probably other smart Republicans will be voting for Hillary, they just can not announce it. Trump is a disaster, a big disaster. After the debate I have not heard a peep out of my RW friends, what can they say, nothing.

2. my concern is the "millenials", with 1 or 2 yrs of awareness of public policy issues they have

swallowed the Rabid Right's Big Lies about HRC. Having only 1 or 2 yrs of experience following public affairs and politics they don't have knowledge of Hillary over the last couple of decades and some portion is musing about not voting for Hillary which in as close a race as this might be, is a vote for tRump. One would hope they get smart real quick and realize that tRump in the WH would be such a disaster it's truly a case of thinking the unthinkable.

If we thought the Shrub was a disaster we ain't seen nothin' yet.
