Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” while discussing the lewd comments Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made while being recorded in 2005 on a hot microphone, retired network reporter and anchor Bob Schieffer said he was “not sure” the GOP will survive.
Schieffer said, “Well, I can’t find a single Republican — I have talked to probably 12 Republican senators yesterday or their representatives. I couldn’t find a single one who now thinks they are going to win. They were saying things like look we realized a couple of weeks ago that we were not going to win, but now we may win — we may lose by historic proportions. Something that will — one person said to me yesterday that could affect the Republican party for generations to come. I am not sure the Republican party is going to survive this.”
