The Republican Party has put up the weakest field in my lifetime. D'ump is a joke and is making a mockery of the political party. Bernie is not going to be left behind by Super Tuesday. Unless the right doesn't get their act together we will have our first woman president.
Of the current crop of all politicians, who would be strong? I really like Jeff Sessions, but do not believe he would be a "strong" candidate......getting past that, I believe he could make a great president.
Trump had had plenty of help making a mockery of the political party, long before he announced. It is the reason for his present success. A clear majority of the Repub Congress PROMISED us that which they apparently had no intentions of delivering. Ted Cruz tried to do so, and if anyone gave him more grief than the Dems, it was the Repubs who were doing everything to break their promises to us. Cruz is a Lone Ranger, which effectively makes him an "outsider", while Trump is currently "outsiding" him.

Here is a very good read explaining Trump's current lead. Even for those who cannot stand her, she makes many irrefutable statements. (And I agree with her on one thing, there are times when I would like to strangle him for certain comments, too.):
Don't recall the day, but sometime between the NH primary and that next debate, Hannity was interviewing Trump in a hallway of some hotel. Both were standing during that short interview. Did anyone else happen to see it? There were no stupid faces made, no bombastic comments.....the guy actually sounded and acted sane!! He actually made total sense. Gave me a bit more respect for him. But then, he had to go and get crazy this last debate, which aggravated even Ms. Coulter!

Its not who can beat Hillary. Obviously the republican who wins the nomination will take the republican votes. Whether the republicans and the I don't know what I am's will out vote the Democrats, maybe they wont. I say if you live in a open primary state, every republican should use their vote to vote for Sanders. Then whatever republican that is nominated has a way greater chance of becoming president. It will also give the democrats false hope of great voter turnout. More republicans may vote and some democrates who believe polls would stay home feeling they have it in the bag.
Personally I'm sick of professional politicians ,I don't care what party they haven't proved to be nothing but liars. Basically I'm done getting to excited about it . If the republican party destroys Trump then I will vote independent if he runs so. If he doesn't or can't I won't vote because it really doesn't matter , nothing is going to change. I'm a small time farmer who refuses to apply for subsidy payments from the government believe me nobody is going to give a damn about me or my family, live or die. At least Trump has balls enough to not be politically correct there really isn't any difference in the rest republican or democrat I'm going to have to go it alone. My pride, and yes my foolishness, isn't for sale.
