Response to stopbush (Original post)

29. Here's what might happen--

Impeachment or not-- this is what sunk Nixon--

a year or more of hearings. Constant drumbeat of "this guy is a crook". (And Trump's crookery is way more widespread than Nixon's.)

Gradually peeling away of "standard Repubs" who never liked him anyway, and think, "we can save the GOP if we step away from him,' and they won't do it openly, but they'll start supporting (secretly) his potential rivals-- Weld, the Ohio guy.

Nutso Trumpists going off on some nutso direction, you know, like the US Army is evil, and they'll decide the only way to go is bombing mailboxes. (This will be horrible, and we've already seen it-- they'll go after the Clinton and Obama families, and we can just hope they fail.) They are ungettable, and good-- they belong in prison, not a political party.


Most people who voted for Trump will vote for him again. But that was a minority to start with, even pumped up by KGB cheating.

If 10% more people vote for the Dem-- sorry, it should be .1%, but the GoP cheats-- -- well, I think that will happen.

For many people, it will be enough to say, "You know. you don't have to actually cast a vote for president. If you despise Trump, you can just leave the president slot empty. That's okay."
