I decided to listen to conservative AM talk radio yesterday to get a sense of the party-line reactions to Kasich and Cruz dropping out and Trump becoming the de facto Republican presidential nominee. It is astonishing to hear some conservative pundits already conceding that the presidential race is lost and advising their listeners to instead focus on local politics. Some were suggesting, on principle, writing in a different selection for President on the national ballot (knowing it will be futile) or leaving it blank. Some others were suggesting their listeners ought to vote for Trump in the national election as the lesser of two evils. Regarding that last suggestion, I have to wonder: doesn't that still mean they are intentionally choosing what they consider to be evil?
