Skip to comments.Never Trump Republicans quietly preparing to back Biden
Posted on 09/18/2019 10:14:55 PM PDT by conservative98
Republicans opposed to President Trump are quietly preparing to support Democratic front-runner Joe Biden, backing that could materialize in the primary as he attempts to fend off a surging Elizabeth Warren.
Some Republican operatives active in Never Trump circles are discussing what form support for Biden might take and the timing. Groups such as Stand Up Republic, co-founded by prominent Never Trump Republicans Evan McMullin and Mindy Finn, could target disaffected GOP voters in key micro-battlegrounds with finely tailored advertising in a bid to boost Biden in the Democratic primary.
Biden, 76, is the most likely Democrat to receive measurable support from the Never Trump crowd, most of whom quickly concluded that the president does not face a realistic threat from the three Republicans challenging him in the GOP primary in 2020.
Biden is probably the only plausible candidate the Never Trumpers could support, said Jim Dornan, a Republican operative in Washington who maintains relationships with anti-Trump Republicans.
How a Warren nomination might impact the Never Trump movement, and its participation in the 2020 campaign, is unclear.
Some Republicans in this community, who believe Warrens policies are a different sort of extreme than Trump but equally dangerous to the country, might channel their opposition into helping one of the presidents long shot primary challengers or get behind an independent candidacy, should one develop. Other Never Trump Republicans insist that the label means exactly that.

Never Trump means what it says: Never Trump. Under no circumstances can you embrace that man coming back to the White House, countered Jerry Taylor, who runs the Niskanen Center, a centrist Washington think tank that has become a gathering spot for anti-Trump Republicans. Most Never Trump Republicans that I traffic with are of the mind that any electoral outcome that doesnt return Donald Trump to the White House is a good outcome, save for the wild card of Bernie Sanders.
Jeb, Kasich, Romney, Kristol, Stephen Hayes?
“Being Never Trump doesnt mean abandoning conservative sensibilities, Yes it does
Sorry, if you support any of these socialist Dems, you’re neither Republican nor conservative.
Picture of Biden back when Poligrip made a better paste. ;-)
Mark Levin on Biden the other day: False teeth. False hair. False mind.
Backstabbing ####s and ENEMIES of us.
At this point, I hate to sound horrible, but whether it’s family or fiance or best friend, voting for anyone other than Trump makes them anti American and traitors in a way.
Because there’s no time left for another “bad” dem president.
the only names I see named are two guys no one has ever heard of. DJT has conquered the GOP. he has as much party support as any of the past 3 or 4 nominees/sitting presidents.
They like Biden because he supported the Iraq War.
No matter what else they say, Never Trumpers are big supporters of the Iraq War and they hate Trump for being the first Republican presidential candidate to criticize it.
For the Bush League Republicans, it’s all about trying to save the Bush Plan for North Mexico (aka USA)

President Trump can spot Brainless Joe a bunch of NeverTrumper votes without worry, *that's* how bad off the Demagogic Party is right now. Thanks conservative98.
I honestly thought the top teeth was gonna drop
This group can’t be more than a few.
Biden (John McCain’s good friend), has strong appeal to
An interesting tweet today from Jerry Taylor:
George Soros is a target is because he defends free media, democracy, rule of law, minority rights, and compassion. https://t.co/LueODxJumT
Google Nikasen Center and Soros. It looks like they have received funding from good old Uncle George.
This will cripple him in the primaries. I wouldn’t be surprised if Warren is behind the story.
