NYTimes has a piece today on a split in the Republican party, between the Trump-Cruz faction and the "establishment". I think it's overdone. I remember the Republicans were split:
- between the Taftites and Eisenhower Republicans in the 1950's.
- between Rockefeller and Nixon in 1960 (the Treaty of Fifth Avenue)
- Goldwater and establishment in 1964
- Ford and Reagan in 1976
- Reagan and John Anderson in 1980
- Bush and Buchanan in 1992
- etc. etc.
