4. They have to be desperate, actually, to knock

Hillary out. I turned on the TV today to see Donald Trump quoting scripture. It is still astonishingly possible that he could be the GOP nominee. Even if they bring forward someone else afterward, enormous damage will have been done. If the Democrats nominated Bernie Sanders, it would be a tremendous stroke of luck for them. Nate Silver says Donald Trump is "really unpopular with general election voters."

"Contra Rupert Murdoch’s assertion about Trump having crossover appeal, Trump is extraordinarily unpopular with independent voters and Democrats. Gallup polling conducted over the past six weeks found Trump with a -27-percentage-point net favorability rating among independent voters, and a -70-point net rating among Democrats; both marks are easily the worst in the GOP field. (Trump also has less-than-spectacular favorable ratings among his fellow Republicans.)"
