Bush was a sympathetic character and spoke in a conciliatory way. Trump is so far from compassionate conservatism that the 2000 scenario is almost literally impossible because compassionate conservatism has national support and was far less partisan. Right now Trump is enjoying the circus but who knows what May or June will bring. Indeed personally i think Trump winning the nomination will be worst thing for GOP since the Nixon era. Trump will get ROASTED when 100% of the political and media focus is entirely on him and he will get completely smashed by a blur of defeaning soundbytes and attack ads.
At the end of the day those "grown ups" in the GOP will be embarrassed to support him. It will actually HURT their turnout.
