NY Times:

The Risks of Becoming a Trump Running Mate


Vice-presidential nominees usually rise in stature. But fear that a Trump ticket could lose badly may deter potential partners.
If I had to pick someone at this point it would probably be Newt Gingrich.  He has been more open to Trump than most people with Washington experience and someone like Chris Cristi would only add another northeastern Republican in a state they would still be unable to carry.  

Sarah Palin seems to have lost her luster even with conservatives.  It is doubtful that Trump to get anyone who has participated in the race to join him after his barrage of insults against opponents.

Gingrich would also fit because he is not someone who would be worried about his future in politics which is mostly behind him at this point.
