NBC: GOP elites reaching ‘acceptance’ phase of Donald Trump’s inevitable nomination

“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” That bit of wisdom, widely attributed to Benjamin Franklin, is incomplete according to NBC News, which has added a third inevitability of life: that of Donald Trump clinching the Republican nomination for president.

At least that’s the point of view the network is ascribing to the establishment wing of the party, which, it maintains, has arrived at the “acceptance stage” of a fate as inevitable as death itself:

[T[he GOP establishment is reaching the “acceptance stage” of the grieving process, even as Sen. [score]Ted Cruz[/score] and his new running mate Carly Fiorina try to mount a last stand in Indiana.

It sounds as though the network is doing a lot of “projecting,” to borrow another term from psychology, since the article cites as many members of the base who are bitterly opposed to Trump as it does those now backing the firebrand.

In the meantime, GOP voters are also warming (if that is the correct word) to a highly probable Trump nomination, according to a Rasmussen poll, which affirms that 89% of Likely Republican Voters now believe that the billionaire real estate mogul is a lock to win the GOP nomination.
