Among the notables as economist Thomas Sowell, publisher William Kristol, media critic Michael Medved, Reagan-era Attorney General Edwin Meese III, author John Podhoretz, and publisher/media critics L. Brent Bozell III.
 
The list includes:
 
Glenn Beck

On January 21, National Review editor Rich Lowry said on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” that Trump does not understand the "principles that make this country great" and that Republican operatives and campaign advisors are either "hiding under their desks" at the prospect of Trump as the Republican nominee or are seeking ways to coopt him. True conservatives, said Lowery, are motivated by ideas, believe in "liberty, the Constitution, and limited government," and are not motivated by those they happen to dislike.
