I'm tempted to agree with you. If the Republicans once again nominate their least worst candidate (so far it's Jeb)then the rupture you predict may well take place. There are nascent signs at places like Redstate where talk of third party alternatives is no longer forbidden. But my gut tells me that they will need to select a balls to the wall right wing nut and suffer an epic electoral meltdown before a reset can occur. Gives me something to look forward to on cold winter nights.

I'm sorry but I don't believe for a minute that the republican party will split.

They didn't like McCain, yet they voted for him in droves. Well, to be more accurate, they voted in droves against Barrack Obama.

They didn't like Romney, yet they voted for him in droves. Well, to be more accurate, they voted in droves against Barrack Obama.

They don't like Jeb Bush. but they hate Hillary Clinton even more. And if Hillary isn't the democratic nominee, don't worry, they'll hate the democratic nominee as much as they hate Hillary.

The republican base votes on hate and irrational fears.

To be fair, many democrats also vote more "against" republicans than "for" democrats. It will certainly be the case if Hillary Clinton is the nominee. But in the case of democrats, I think it's not really a question of "hate" towards republicans. These days, it's simply a question of preventing insanity.

It's not so much a question of Democratic hatred toward the GOP; it's more like contempt.
