Republicans are bailing on Donald Trump faster than The Donald can say “YUUUUGE”. And they are bailing even faster after a disastrous weekend for Trump, with his support of hackers from Vladimir Putin’s Russia to violate our national security, and his vicious attack on the Khan family, after their impassioned speech at the Democratic National Convention.
During this time, President Barack Obama gave an incredible speech on the 3rd night of the Democratic National Convention, and it was probably one of the best of his career. Even Republicans were fawning over his speech once he was done.
John Podhoretz (speech writer for Reagan and George H.W. Bush):
Take about five paragraphs out of that Obama speech and it could have been a Reagan speech. Trust me. I know.

Erick Erickson (conservative blogger):
Text just now from a senior House Republican who gave me permission to tweet this: “We were supposed to make that sort of speech."
— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) July 28, 2016
Tim Miller (Jeb Bush’s spokesman):
Will a Trump apologist explain to me why an 18 yo watching the conventions would want to be a Republican? We're giving away a generation
— Tim Miller (@Timodc) July 28, 2016
Rory Cooper (Republican strategist):
Great speech. And we made it easy for him.

Noah Rothman (editor, conservative journal Commentary):
"What we heard in Cleveland week wasn't particularly Republican. And it sure wasn't conservative." – Barack Obama.

And Obama gave a speech where he full on called Trump unfit to be president, and reached out republicans asking them how they could possibly support such a man.
