5. Quite a charisma-deprived lineup.

Pence, Cruz, and Cotton? LOL.

6. Surprised DeSantis isn't listed.

He's at or near the top of most polling for the GOP nomination.

Pence and Haley, good luck. The entire MAGA base hates them.

10. Same, he's also probably their most viable option

He's the only one who seems to have a chance of grabbing both the relatively normal traditional Republicans and the Trumper nuts.

Also Pence has zero chance. The Trumpers all turned on him and to everyone else he is tainted for being Trump's VP.

11. Well this is an old list. Yes... It is interesting the ones who

made the strategic decision to go against trump. Haley and Pence. They are so inextricably linked to him from the past. It's like they made a bad half-way decision. They aren't independent enough or strong enough on their own.

Wonder why Romney's not on here.

7. I think it's going to be one of the Florida guys

Of course the easy pick is Chump, but it may not be up to him if he has legal and financial troubles. If it isn't Chump, it's either Rick Scott, Ron DeSantis, or Marco Rubio (long shot).

Haley, Cruz, Hawley, Pence and Cotton would all win one primary each - in their own state. I'm not even sure if Pence could win his own state.

9. Interesting take on Hawley... Former Stanford historian advisor..

https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2021/01/19/josh-hawley-senator-stanford-history-capitol-insurrection-ambition-460481
Kennedy doesn’t see the Capitol rioters as the only symptom, and he doesn’t hold them solely responsible for the country’s current malady. Blame—and, he says, “shame”—also lie with elected leaders who furthered President Donald Trump’s efforts to delegitimize the election. And among the most prominent of them is one of Kennedy’s former students, “arguably the most gifted student I taught in 50 years”: Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri.
From 1998 to 2002, Kennedy was Hawley’s adviser at Stanford. Hawley, a history major who graduated with honors and wrote a thesis about Theodore Roosevelt, wasn’t just another young man in a hurry, passing through a top university. Kennedy remembers him as deeply engaged and thoughtful, and a serious scholar of the Constitution.


Then, after the election, the professor watched in shock as his former star student became the first senator to say he would challenge the certification of Joe Biden’s win, openly trying to prevent the people’s chosen president from taking office. On January 6, Hawley was photographed giving a raised fist to protesters outside the Capitol as he walked in, planning to object to the electoral results. Even after the rioters breached the Senate chamber and violently interrupted the process, he refused to backtrack on his claims, refuted by court ruling after court ruling, of “irregularities” and “fraud” in the election.

13. Yes definitely - also Rick Scott

Of the 3 Florida guys (in addition to Chump), Rubio is the long shot to my mind.

15. DeSantis will crush that list if Trump doesn't run, with the possible exception of Cruz

DeSantis is extremely popular with Trumpers.

17. Hawley is too smart for this own good, thankfully

He identified Trumpism as the key historical trend and went all in, destroying his own future political opportunity in doing so.
