Trump, Clinton Might Not Be Best Candidates to Win General Election

It's an understatement to say the Republican party is in a state of turmoil.

High-profile members of the party have been scrambling to devise a way to beat front-runner Donald Trump -- but the current alternatives haven't been compelling.

The party's morale has been steadily declining over the last six months. According to the Huffington Post, the percent of Republican voters who said they were pleased with the GOP primary field was at 80 percent in October, compared to just 56 percent in March.

CNN/ORC polls released earlier this week, revealing only one Republican candidate would beat Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head race -- John Kasich.

That same poll reported overall 35 percent of voters say they want to see another Republican run as a third party candidate if Trump wins the Republican nomination, and among those opposing Trump, 51 percent want another Republican to join the race as a third party candidate.

Insiders within the Republican party have been courting and discussing bringing a myriad of party leaders into the race, hoping to find the one who might stop the Trump momentum. House Speaker Paul Ryan and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney have both been mentioned as potential alternatives.
