A report is out that some big donors and higher ups in GOP circles are now working on a way to keep Donald Trump out of the debates. I can't even highlight how bad this would be for the GOP (so please do it!) First off you will alienate all Trumps supporters in a huge, guaranteed to backfire way. Second, with Trump's basically unlimited funds, coupled with his ego, I could easily see him purchasing air time on all the major networks and instead of a debate, give an unmoderated campaign speech, televised to millions. Finally, Trump hasn't ruled out a third party run. Want to really screw over Republican chances in 2016? Ban Trump from the debates and push him to run third party.
Basically this idea is a trifecta of bad for Republicans, so let's hope it comes to being.
