GOP leaders and Donald Trump's latest poll numbers: Much more to be wary about

The behinders in the 11/27-12/1 CNN/ORC poll:
  • 4% - Chris Christie
  • 3% - Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina
  • 2% - John Kasich, Mike Huckabee
  • 1% - Rand Paul
  • 0% - Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, Rick Santorum
Other stuff: 
  • 52% of Republican (278) and independent (176) respondents think that Donald Trump has the best chance of winning the election.

And what do GOP party leaders think?
It's a much different scenario.  Many leading Republican officials, strategists and donors now say they fear that Mr. Trump’s nomination would lead to an electoral wipeout, a sweeping defeat that could undo some of the gains Republicans have made in recent congressional, state and local elections.
