Some of the most famous members of the Never Trump Republican crowd may have painted themselves into a corner. The most famous among them sanctimoniously vowed to vote for a Democrat just to get Trump out of office. But now, Sen. Bernie Sanders is looking like the safest bet to be the Democratic nominee, and the Never Trumpers are weighing a vote for an avowed socialist.
Here are some of the most interesting ways the high-profile former Republicans took the news:
Max Boot has perhaps gone further than any other Never Trump former-Republican. Arguing he was doing it to preserve his principles, Boot joined the Democratic Party so as to defeat Trump.
Republicans have turned their back on conservative principles to become a cult of personality for an aspiring authoritarian. All voters with a conscience should now turn their back on the Republican Party. My @PostOpinions column: https://t.co/IebHdLmKJW
