7:06 am
and do they rally behind donald trump? >> i think you will see fragmentation among republicans as they come to grips with donald trump. there will be opposition from him who are ideological opposed to trump's versus of democrat light. he has been a democrat most of his life. there are plenty of conservatives who will never accept that. there will be those republicans who see principles for power and follow trump as he comes closer to the nomination. >> how concerned are you as a republican strategist what this is doing to the party? you see the scenes like yesterday in california. violent protests. blood, bloody faces, protesters knocking down barricades. what does this do to the party long term? >> i think it is horrible for the party, but a microcosm for the party as a whole. this is more than partisan
