Washington (CNN)Republican officials who oppose Donald Trump as their party nominee have spent the last few days -- ever since the withdrawal from the race of Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich -- wondering if there is anything they could have done to prevent this outcome.

In early March, it became clear that Trump was well on his way to the nomination and would even likely defeat Rubio in his home state of Florida's March 15 primary.

Cruz camp trying to save face for a future election?
Can’t blame losing the South on a VP pick.
I'm surprised Linda didn't make that happen.
Wow. I don’t believe Rubio could have been enough of a difference over Carly.
I can’t believe they’ve said this, now.
No, Ted. You couldn’t have beaten The Donald if Iron Man and Thor were your running mates.
The only could have/should have in worthless hind sight after one gets their butt kicked and pounded.
For Cruz and the other snake handlers, it’s always someone else’s fault.
2 losers make a stronger ticket than one. Pundit logic.
Wishful or delusional thinking.
Didn’t they see how Rubio did in his own home state?
Rubio on the ticket is zero.
Typical Cruz. First he fails to help Carly when she falls off the stage, now he's insulting her.
What a creep.
We could have stopped Trump if Rubio became running mateYea and named Beck Chief Justice.
Yeah Ted, that’s the ticket! If one Cuban won’t do it, let’s try two! Kinda reminds me of “the McDonalds Prize meme.” First Prize is one Big Mac, second prize is two.
It’s everyone else’s fault except the Lyin’ Ted sCruz, blame the woman.
