i asked someone involved with the anti-trump effort to rank the republican panic on scale of one to 10. he said 11. but harnessing that panic requires politicians and party regulars to organize themselves quickly. there is no leader of this effort. requires them to take a big risk. they don't like to be on the wrong side of public opinion. no guarantee. attacks from the establishment could make trump stronger. >> what is one of the most plausible approaches? >> i guess the shortest long shot would be to deny trump the delegates needed for the nomination. by launching a withering set of ads immediately in delegate rich states, ohio, florida, which volt on march 15th. the hope would be to tear trump down and give some other candidate a chance to win. winner. and the delegates could be persuaded to pick some one other than trump in possibly more convention. >> looking quickly at democrats.
