68. I'd like to think that Trump has tainted the party enough

that they'd have a difficulty winning in 2020 regardless of who runs. People will know- or be made aware- that Haley worked for Trump too. At any rate, I don't know that anybody running as a GOPer in 2020 would be able to escape the "Trump Taint", not to mention the fact that most GOPers have enabled and covered for Trump pretty consistently. A fractious 2020 primary challenge would be hard on the GOP in and of itself too. Trump may survive it, albeit wind up even more wounded than he is now. A successful primary bid by a challenger would likely be mortally wounded by the loss of Trump supporters angry over Trump being dumped. I have a hard time seeing how Trump/GOP wins re-election next year but not dismissing it as an impossibility just because.......
