Congressional leaders strategy of cutting deals with Obama to avoid giving ammunition to Democrats backfires

Washington Post:

Desperate to find a candidate to coalesce around in hopes of stopping the populist insurrection of Donald Trump and the conservative uprising championed by Ted Cruz, the establishment instead got the opposite.
McConnell's scheme has left him exposed on the presidential front.  He thought he was taking ammunition away from Harry Reid in the close Senate races, and instead he has provoked an uprising against the GOP establishment that he has no control over.  It is ironic that the guy who stood up to his strategy the most is one of the leading candidates for President and the other is a wild card outsider.

I do not think he or the congressional leadership realises how badly they misread the GOP base when they were betraying them with deals to keep Obama's agenda funded.
