    5 takeaways from the Republican debate
    Eric Bradner By Eric Bradner, CNN Updated 1:42 AM ET, Fri March 11, 2016

    Miami (CNN)This was Donald Trump's moment of Zen.

    A chastened Florida Sen. Marco Rubio got back to basics. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz focused on his pitch to become the sole Trump alternative. And Ohio Gov. John Kasich kept up his routine of staying above the fray.

    All of which allowed Trump to drop his usual insults and try on a new hat: party unifier.

    It was the final debate before Tuesday's winner-take-all elections in Florida and Ohio and delegate-rich contests in Illinois, North Carolina and Missouri.

    Here are five takeaways.

    Paul Ryan won't categorically rule out accepting GOP nom


    House Speaker Paul Ryan decided not to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, but he declined to rule out accepting it if a deadlocked party convention turns to him this summer.

    "You know, I haven't given any thought to this stuff," Ryan said Tuesday night in an exclusive interview at the Capitol. "People say, 'What about the contested convention?' I say, well, there are a lot of people running for president. We'll see. Who knows."

    How mainstream media blew the biggest political story of the last 50 years
    Neal Gabler, Moyers & Company NEAL GABLER, MOYERS & COMPANY
    16 MAR 2016 AT 05:54 ET

    , the crescendo of complaint! The Republican establishment and the mainstream media, working hand in hand in their unprecedented, non-stop assault on the “short-fingered vulgarian” named Donald Trump, would have you believe that Trump augurs the destruction of the Republican Party. Former Reagan speechwriter and now Wall Street Journal/CBS pundit Peggy Noonan expressed the general sentiment of both camps when she said on Super Tuesday that “we’re seeing a great political party shatter before our eyes.”

    But here is what no one in the GOP establishment wants you to know, and no one in the media wants to admit: Donald Trump isn’t the destruction of the Republican Party; he is the fulfillment of everything the party has been saying and doing for decades. He is just saying it louder and more plainly than his predecessors and intra-party rivals.


    The media have been acting as if the Trump debacle were the biggest political story to come down the pike in some time. But the real story – one the popularity of Trump’s candidacy has revealed and inarguably the biggest political story of the last 50 years — is the decades-long transformation of Republicanism from a business-centered, small town, white Protestant set of beliefs into quite possibly America’s primary institutional force of bigotry, intellectual dishonesty, ignorance, warmongering, intractability and cruelty against the vulnerable and powerless.

    It is a story you didn’t read, hear or see in the mainstream media, only in lefty journals like The Nation and Rolling Stone, on websites like People for the American Way, and in columns like Paul Krugman’s. And it wasn’t exactly because the MSM in its myopia missed the story. It was because they chose not to tell it – to pretend it wasn’t happening. They are still pretending.

    It is hardly a surprise that the GOP establishment and their enablers in the media are acting as if Trump, the Republican frontrunner, is a break from the party’s supposedly genteel past. Like Captain Renault in Casablanca, who was “shocked, shocked,” to find gambling in Rick’s establishment, the GOP solons profess to be “shocked, shocked” by Trump’s demagogic racism and nativism. Their protestations remind me of an old gambit of comedian Milton Berle. When the audience was applauding him, he would shush them demonstratively with one hand while encouraging them gently with the other.

    Neither is it a surprise that the conservative media have been doing the same thing — decrying Trump while giving us Trump Lite. Indeed, even less blatant partisans who ought to know better, like every “thinking man’s” favorite conservative David Brooks, deliver the same hypocrisy.

    Donald Trump just killed next week's Republican debate Updated by Andrew Prokop on March 16, 2016, 1:36 p.m. ET

    Fresh off a series of election victories that put him in a stronger position for the GOP nomination than ever, Donald Trump announced on Fox News Wednesday morning that he would not attend the network's scheduled debate next week — because, he said, he's giving a "major speech" elsewhere.

    Then John Kasich's campaign made it clear that he wouldn't attend either if Trump wouldn't show up — and soon afterward, Fox News put out word that the debate would be cancelled.

    Donald Trump says there will be 'riots' if he is denied Republican nomination

    Mr Trump secured victories in four of the five states that went to the polls on Tuesday

    Donald Trump - fresh from winning four states on Tuesday - raised the prospect of violence from his supporters if he were denied the nomination by a contested convention.

    The billionaire Republican frontrunner said that if he was leading the race by hundreds of delegates - but 100 short of a clear majority - and was denied the nomination, “you’d have riots”.

    “I wouldn’t lead it, but I think bad things would happen,” Mr Trump told CNN, after a night which saw him take Florida, Missouri, North Carolina and Illinois, but lose Ohio.

    “I don't think you can say that we don’t get it automatically. I think you’d have riots. I think you’d have riots. I'm representing many, many millions of people”

    Altough Mr Trump had a hugely successful night, and forced fellow Republican Marco Rubio to drop out of the race, his defeat in Ohio to Governor John Kasich cost him the state’s haul of 66 delegates.

    This means he will have to win 60 per of the remaining delegates if he is to secure the 1,237 needed to win the party's nomination ahead of the Republican National Convention in July. He said he believed he would do, adding “I’m a closer,” he said. “I get things closed.”

    But the party establishment loathes the often abrasive tycoon and is determined to stop him coming the nominee. It is possible, though unlikely, that Texas senator Ted Crus could overtake Mr Trump, but he is disliked by the party too.

    Its last favored candidate, Mr Kasich, appears to believe that by depriving Mr Trump of a clean sweep on Tuesday, he could emerge as a consensus candidate.

    “We are going go all the way to Cleveland and secure the Republican nomination,” he said on Tuesday night.

    Mr Cruz is among those who have dismissed the idea. “There has been talk of an establishment candidate being parachuted in. I think that would be a disaster,” he said.

    Republican Leaders Map a Strategy to Derail Donald Trump

    Republican leaders adamantly opposed to Donald J. Trump’s candidacy are preparing a 100-day campaign to deny him the presidential nomination, starting with an aggressive battle in Wisconsin’s April 5 primary and extending into the summer, with a delegate-by-delegate lobbying effort that would cast Mr. Trump as a calamitous choice for the general election.

    Recognizing that Mr. Trump has seized a formidable advantage in the race, they say that an effort to block him would rely on an array of desperation measures, the political equivalent of guerrilla fighting.

    There is no longer room for error or delay, the anti-Trump forces say, and without a flawlessly executed plan of attack, he could well become unstoppable.

    But should that effort falter, leading conservatives are prepared to field an independent candidate in the general election, to defend Republican principles and offer traditional conservatives an alternative to Mr. Trump’s hard-edged populism. They described their plans in interviews after Mr. Trump’s victories last Tuesday in Florida and three other states.

    George Will shreds Trump’s new Republican Party: ‘He’s appealing entirely to white people’

    Conservative columnist George Will predicted over the weekend that Donald Trump would destroy the Republican Party as it exists today because his campaign strategy was to only attract white voters.

    According to Will, Trump is a politician in the tradition of segregationist George Wallace because he believes that more “meanness” was needed in public discourse.

    “The problem is this,” Will told Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday. “Not only are his negatives at 61 percent — almost double his positives, they are at 32 percent — but he’s appealing entirely to white people.”

    “[Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney] got 17 percent — that’s all — of the non-white vote,” he continued. “Trump, by every measure, would do worse than that. Which means he would not have to get just the 65 percent of the white vote to win that Ronald Reagan got, sweeping 49 states. He would have to get 70 percent of the white vote.”

    Will concluded: “A, it won’t happen and B, it would destroy the Republican Party by making it the party of white people.”
