Repugs Will Fall In Line After Dotard Neuters DeathSantis

Agreed. There is wishful thinking on the part of many Repubs that they can stop Trumpty Dumpty's 2024 presidential nomination with their current attacks. Reality is that the MAGAts will never quit Trump. The rest of the GOP has always just been along for the ride.

If Trump does fail to win the nomination, though, he'll have no compunctions about running third party or claiming election fraud and telling his supporters to stay home in November 2024. Either way, Hair Furor will cost the GOP the 2024 general election.

Trump 2024: Connecticut Republicans concerned but his base unwavering in support of former president

...Even Mike Pence, the once-loyal vice president, says there will be "better choices'' for president in two years as Pence has been hiring staff members for a potential run.

Many of those raising concerns about Trump are hardcore Republicans -- not liberal Democrats who have long detested Trump and have never voted for him.

At the same time, 62% of Republicans nationally see Trump running for a third time as positive, according to a new Quinnipiac University national poll. Almost 80% of Republicans view themselves as supporters of Trump and his Make America Great Again movement, the poll said. Among the broader electorate, 57% do not favor Trump running again, and voters are split over whether they believe that Trump could win again. Among Democrats, 88% think it's a bad idea that Trump is running again.

In Connecticut, House Republican leader Vincent Candelora of North Branford, a fiscally and socially conservative Republican, has deep concerns.

"Just as every fine wine has its day, I think Trump has turned to vinegar,'' Candelora said in an interview. ...

It was grape flavored Flavor Aid not Kool aid. That's a misnomer.

But Republicans can't tell the difference.

"It's easy for Republicans to win in Florida. It's how it's supposed to be: we built it that way."

He's right about that... DeSantis did build it that way, over the objections of even some Republicans in FL's Congress.

I think Trump has turned to vinegar...

But it's very, very good vinegar. Probably the best vinegar anyone has ever tasted, really. Nobel Prize? Well I didn't say it, but people are saying it.

Trump will unite Democrats and Independents in opposition to him.
i don't think Desantis creates much emotion either for him or against him.

Key Trump 2024 Rivals Silent After His White Supremacist Meeting
archive.ph

... Many of Donald Trump's potential 2024 rivals and some top Republicans have fallen silent on the former president's dinner with a notorious white supremacist, illustrating the party's continuing struggle to escape his grasp.

Trump's impromptu dinner with Nick Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago last week has drawn condemnation from only a handful of Republicans, while most sidestepped the matter or said nothing. Those silent so far include Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, the chamber's likely next speaker.
Chris Christie, the former New Jersey governor who is rumored to be weighing a 2024 bid, told the New York Times it showed an "awful lack of judgment" by Trump that, when combined with other transgressions, make him an "untenable general election candidate for the Republican Party in 2024." ...

I just can't imagine the GOP nominating Trump. I just can not see it happening.

#8 That's true if the Dems don't go ------- crazy in their own right. Keep Biden on. Highlight effective, moderate democrats. Sideline those on the party's extreme.

If we are honest about it, the GOP leadership has done a hell of a lot more than bend the knee. They have been actively --------- Trump for six years now. If we are honest about it.

Having better candidates has never been the issue. Republicans have always had better candidates than Trump. Its just that they can't win in the primaries. And until, and unless republicans change how their primaries are run, they are stuck with Trump because the MAGA base isn't budging from Trump. Changing how republicans run their primaries isn't likely to happen because the party apparatus has been taken over by Trump acolytes.

Pence is delusional if he thinks that he has a chance in the republican primaries. Many of those primary voters wanted to hang him; many think that he is a traitor for not standing with Trump and the rest probably thinks of him as a wimp. But, running for office will give him an excuse to raise money that he can use to maintain a political voice.

Republicans will have to save themselves. No amount of law suits and criminal cases/convictions will prevent the MAGA base from supporting him in the primaries. Hell, he could be behind bars in a prison jumpsuit and the MAGA base would still support him. Without any changes to how republicans run their primaries, Trump WILL be the republican nominee.

The general election is an entirely different story. The law suits and criminal cases/convictions will matter. Trump doesn't stand a snow ball's chance in hell of being elected POTUS if these law suits and criminal cases/convictions are affirmed by a jury.

Still far too early to make a call on whether he will or won't get the nomination. A lot can change between now and the first primary/caucus.

I'm not so sure GOPers, other than the far right kooks, will kowtow to the Dotard. He did not support candidates financially until a crisis became apparent, he was responsible for the selection of a bunch of mugs, pugs, nitwits and half-wits (sorry, Mel Brooks) who collectively stunk up the evening at victory parties, and voting results have shown that most Republican voters will vote party over candidate, so those voters aren't going anywhere, unless presented with a choice between Rafael Warnock and Hershel Walker...

The far right kooks are the ones that can definitely be relied upon to show up for the primaries. Although their numbers may be "relatively" small, it is likely large enough that Trump could win a primary election in a multi candidate field. If the non MAGA GOPers could settle on a single candidate to run against Trump, that candidate would have a chance at winning.

It's hard to imagine any person setting aside their presidential ambitions. The relatively small number of far right kooks will likely be large enough to secure the nomination for Trump in a highly fractured field.

And all the people you vote for will make sure it happens.

Face it. Regardless of whether you voted for Trump. You vote for all his enablers.
