If nominated, the number of Never Trumpers in the Republican party will grow. He would loose by 10% points or more.Well said, Ted, and I don't disagree with you...except to think things may already be irreversible. Then again, I'm a pessimist.
Re Trump, don't get me wrong: there's no question he was treated unfairly. Hell, he was treated outrageously. The Bad Guys basically spent four years subverting his presidency (and in the process the Constitution).
Also, it's a given that he's preferable to a Dem-Mediacrat. Far preferable. Not even close. In fact, that was always the main argument in his favor in my mind...and why I voted for him twice. But I voted for him without illusions as to his character, convictions, or intellect.
The equation has changed now. He's become an albatross and a destructive force with the beneficiary being Dem-Media World. Closing in on 80 years old. Under federal investigation. Running disapproval numbers that are prohibitive and make the man unelectable.
And now this utterly juvenile, bizarre, unprovoked attack on DeSantis. This is what we have to look forward to if he throws his hat in the ring again as will apparently happen next week. This is why Dem-Media is salivating at the prospect.
Trump can not win. He should not run. And if he does, he will blow up the Republican Party and hand the White House to Dem-Media on a silver platter. That's just the bitter reality of the situation.
