Hypothetical Situation: Donald Trump does not get the Republican nomination, and runs as an Independent. This causes a split vote for conservatives, causing the Democrats to win. (How likely do you think this is. Do not vote on favorability.)

History tells us that this is the sign that the Republican Party is about to be gone forever

In 1912, Taft tried to do what TR wanted to do but failed. This resulted in a pissed Teddy Roosevelt running as a third party. This resulted in Woodrow Wilson winning easily.

Modern day republicanism is already dying steadily, this will only speed it up

You'll then have 8 years of Hillary and the closest thing to a republican is a centrist like Jim Webb or Rand Paul

Or Bernie, his numbers are ramping up great! And I agree with you.

I respect Bernie far more, but he's like the underdog taking on the NY Yankees

If he does that then he really cares more about winning than the good of the country.

He won't make it far enough to matter.

Unlikely (unfortunately). They're not going to vote for trump if they know it'll result in an exact win for Hillary or Bernie.

They voted for Ross Perot once. That's how Bill Clinton was able to defeat Bush Sr.
