Bob Schieffer on Presidential Race: Republicans May Be Headed for 49 State Disaster

Schieffer says the Republicans are tearing themselves apart and compares 2016 to the Dems in 1972

Veteran CBS journalist Bob Schieffer thinks that the Republicans might be headed for a disaster similar to the one faced by Democrats in 1972. Appearing on CBS This Morning, he also speculated that, regardless of who GOP voters ultimately pick, there is no good option. Drawing a historical comparison, the former Face the Nation anchor imagined, “We may be seeing, for the Republicans, something like the Democrats saw in 1968 in Chicago where the party simply tore itself apart in full view of the entire nation on television.”
