An interesting analysis but way premature and 180 degrees backward. Instead of Trump putting an end to Ryan’s political prospects, a big Trump defeat will leave Ryan as the top GOP official. As someone who chided Trump and did not campaign for him, but who did not unendorse him, Ryan will be palatable to all sides and have enthusiastic support from the middle. In a world where so many politicians have promised too much and ran up a $20 trillion debt and unsustainable deficits, his reputation as someone who can add and balance a budget but who won’t blow up the system Cruz style has tremendous appeal.
