 The best thing Democrats could do at this point in the campaign cycle is be quiet about Donald Trump; very quiet.
Why? Donald Trump is single handedly destroying the Republican party from the inside; something Democrats have been only able to dream about. The party Establishment is not only attacking it's front runner because he's an "outsider"  but insulting its base (Romney calls them suckers) for voting for him.  That is a gift that will keep on giving all the way up to November.
What Democrats need to be doing is focusing on the "outsider" in their own ranks: Bernie Sanders who could also be known as the "teflon" candidate because of his genuine and squeaky clean political track record which the younger generation of Democrats see as more important than political savvy. 
What would Republicans have to attack Bernie with in a general election? (long pause...................) ?????????
Hillary, on the other hand, would come to the general election with a "huuuge" pile of baggage that Trump (or any Republican nominee) with have a heyday with and would most likely bring her down to defeat.                 

Offering Senator Marco Rubio of Florida a much-needed boost, if not an outright endorsement, Mitt Romney has recorded get-out-the-vote calls for Mr. Rubio’s presidential campaign that are being sent to voters in the four states voting on Tuesday.

Mr. Romney indicates, at the beginning and end of the message, that he is calling on behalf of Mr. Rubio but only urges voters to cast ballots for “a candidate who can defeat Hillary Clinton and who can make us proud,” according to a copy of the message obtained by The New York Times.

The explicit point of the message from Mr. Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee, is less about helping Mr. Rubio than it is about sowing doubts regarding Donald J. Trump.

“If we Republicans were to choose Donald Trump as our nominee, I believe that the prospects for a safe and prosperous future would be greatly diminished — and I’m convinced Donald Trump would lose to Hillary Clinton,” Mr. Romney says in the call.
