What the Republicans Need to Do to Win

On Tuesday, December 15, 2015 there will another GOP debate. Each presidential candidate will attempt to argue why them being president will be the best for the United States of America. Currently, Donald Trump is leading in the Republican polls. This isn't good for the Republican party. In a recent poll, it was shown that every other Republican candidate did better against Hillary Clinton, the most likely Democratic candidate, than Donald Trump did (Wall Street Journal). One of the problems with having Trump as their candidate is the he will not be able to gain new supporters. Donald Trump has currently the most amount of loyal supporters, but the least amount of potential supports, having less potential supporters than any other Republican candidate (Wall Street Journal). Also, the Republican establishment does not agree with Donald Trump's principles (Paul Ryan). Their is no way that the Republicans can win with Trump, or would want to win with him, as their candidate. So what do they do?

My suggestion to the Republicans would be, have a meeting with all the Republican candidates who are politicians. This would exclude Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson. Then, at the meeting decide one candidate to run for the Republican party. This way, the whole Republican party could pool their resources into one candidate, and also not have to spend time attacking each other. Obviously, this is not realistic as their are too many candidates who would not give in, but it is the best way to defeat Trump, and potentially defeat Clinton.
