I'm calling it right now. For whatever reason, Trump won't be the nominee.

It will be:
Romney or
Kasich or
Haley

Most likely it will be Romney since the rabid Dumpster base dont accpet Hailey as one of their own.

IIRC Ryan was Romney's running mate. Ryan's beady eyes while he's lying thru his teeth is a dead ringer the guy is not to be trusted.

12. The velocity at which Trump is crumbling makes this not so farfetched.

His campaign is spending money on TV and web advertising like it's the last week before the general election. I also can't see Pence substituting for Trump.

So much fanciful thinking on this forum lately.

And guess what? 2020 will still be relatively close.

People need to wake up, fast.

19. It could be close

but if Dems do what they’re supposed to do i.e show up and vote, then we have the opportunity for a landslide, especially if his approval rating stays in the 39-42% range.

And those names are on it. Haley has been grooming for years. She is the Republican answer to our Female candidate. Romney gets them back to the good ole days.

21. I'd Much Rather

have it be Trump than Romney.

My speculation is that if it's Trump enough Repubs will stay home out of disgust for him and inability to vote Dem that we can win. Romney won't suppress the turnout. In fact, I think many Repubs would love it to be Romney.

26. And we would have in a less corrupt, saner world.

But if Republicans are instrumental in throwing Trump out, I suspect the base will splinter. At least in the short term.

33. A lesson to be learned

We expected voters to act in the only way we would, leading to the predictions of 400+ EC votes for Ms Clinton. There would have been no amount of corruption that could have overcome such a total, but in truth there was no reason to predict such a landslide. The idea was formed and all evidence that did not support it was rejected.

Similarly if Trump is not the candidate, the Republican base will be in turmoil. Like a wounded animal however, that does not mean it is no longer dangerous or has become ineffective. Complacency can easily lead to defeat.

34. 400+ is highly unlikely in today's world. But 350-370 is possible.

There are far too many red states to make 400+ electoral votes or 60+ Democratic Senators realistic possibilities. As we become increasingly concentrated, we're on track to have 70% of the population represented by just 30% of the Senate within 20 years. We are an anti-democracy.

And then there's voter suppression.

I don't think anyone will advocate complacency.

27. Trump approval is holding up. And in the head-to-heads, he has improved. He's not going anywhere.

Also, he probably thinks he has been successful in damaging Joe Biden.

35. His approval is a straight line. It's unprecedented.

I keep encouraging people to look at the graphs at 538. No predecessor has had an approval rating nearly as steady as Trump's.

It's going to take something truly incredible for the GOP to risk dumping Trump.

31. How about a 3rd party?

In order to maintain loyalty, Trump starts his own party.

The repubs form a new party if Trump stays.

36. Since 9/11/2001, there is a man who has worked so hard for the GOP and

tirelessly pursued the party's nomination, he deserves a shot at heading the ticket.

Ladies and Gentlemen: that person is -- Rudy!
