Many have predicted the collapse of the G.O.P. for quite some time. After Governor Mitt Romney’s defeat to President Obama in 2012, political commentators (let’s take a page out of Jose Mourinho’s book and call them “Einsteins”) declared the Republican Party dead and that there was no foreseeable path to the White House.
