83. I'm worried about ANYBODY other than Trump as their candidate

Because anyone else will look like a Rhodes scholar and saint. Man or woman, they could even say they agree with everything Trump tried to do...in spirit...and agree with everything the GOP is passing in the Senate....but they are NOT Trump. And they will be more diplomatic, repair relations with their allies, stop the more extreme policies like separating families, and simply just NOT tweeting childish insults every day. Further they accept the findings of the intelligence agencies, and EVEN THOUGH they accept Putin worked to get Trump elected, they will endorse sanctions against Russia because defending democracy is sooooooooo important to them. And from now on they will win by using their 'superior' positions. (Even though they'd still be using their own experienced cyber troll army who learned under the best).

Thats one of the frustrating things about Trumps win that McTurtle is chortling to himself about. The silver lining for him is that just when the nation was starting to veer left.....(gay marriage, pot legalization,....) when the first woman was all set to win the Presidency, and did win by 3 million votes, and the SCOTUS was also going to veer left, the nation instead was cursed with a baffoon RW President of their party that promoted the most extreme racist sexist messaging in history, while they quietly passed bills for their bank accounts and their donors. Trump pushed everything even further to the right, so that now, a Republican candidate who would have been handicapped with being compromised or extreme in the past, only has to show the mildest of competency and decency, and they're in, and they will give all those Republican and Independent voters a reason to vote Republican again. To not have to deny it in phone polls.
