1. Math, the bane of Trump's existence...

There's a reason he lost his ass in casinos...

Let's give him 67% of AVOWED Repukes...

Currently they are at about 30% of registered voters...so that would get Trump a whopping 20% of the population...
Good luck with that number in a general election.

5. his goal would not be to win

especially if he cant run. It would be to punish the gop. Trump is vindictive and will go for maximum damage.

15. Even simpler explanation

He wants the rubesí money

He cares about that more than getting back at the GOP

He just wants their money

14. There is no reason he can't start a new party

A MAGA party avowed to overthrow the US Government, full of nepotism, corruption, scams, aided by Putin. It'll be Yuge! Cons will be so torn between The Republican Party and the MAGA. It'll be a beautiful thing.

3. The "Patriot Party".

It was mentioned on Bill Maher last night night and Bill said that the name alone is "brown shirty" meaning it was like Nazi Germany and they used patriotic terms when they were anything but patriotic.

16. I think this is probably the most likely

However if he pisses off enough rethugs in the next couple weeks it could backfire. Sure most of his followers will be pissed if heís convicted but they have pretty limited attention spans. I donít think heís going to be the power broker he thinks he is.

But it will be one or the other I would think.

24. +1, or step 3 Trump stays in the kGOP but is a big influencer of policy and fund raiser where

... he keeps 70% of what he brings in.

Trump starts another party it wont last but who cares, we increase midterm lead in 2022 we can enact the VRA and make voter suppression a felony.

I would put money on it the reason why polls are so off in the US is because of voter suppression but when it can't be implemented the polls are spot on like Georgia run offs.

25. Either way, the party is split.

Yes I don't think a Trump party would last. He is too lazy to do much work, and he will pocket most of the donations, so no money to keep it going.

I agree, the polls are off because of voter suppression. Has been the case for a long time.

27. This has to be a major goal, voting rights.

They do it right out in the open, suppressing votes.
It is unreal.

8. If Senate GrOPers are worried about Trump starting his own party, the BEST thing to do is

to convict him and disqualify him from future federal office. Cut the head off the snake. It's a cult of personality not a cult of principles.

He seems to think he can make them knuckle under by making this threat. Maybe he can, but if they had a lick of sense it would not only not work but backfire spectacularly.

12. A 'Patriot Party'?

That's one way to get more Repubs to vote for impeachment. Otherwise they never win another election again.

The Trump Party.

In gold letters of course.

22. The division has occurred.

The republicans are already split. We all saw it coming. And let's face it, they can't put Humpty Dumpty together again.

Right now the old party needs to stand up to this newer, fascist leaning, un-american party. The best way I can see is impeaching tRump.

23. He's doing it to scare Senate Republicans ...

... into voting for acquittal. If they do, and if past is prologue, he'll start one anyway once he's off the hook. It will last just long enough to royally screw the Republican Party for a few election cycles, and then it will die like a wet fart, as does everything he touches.
