When Trump loses,

I can't help but think he's going to direct his followers to tear the Republican party to pieces. In Trump's mind, he is never responsible for something bad. And he obviously doesn't like to lose.

I believe Hillary will crush him, even with her negatives, and when she does Trump will throw a fit like the political world has never seen.

I watched one of his rallies yesterday and it was utterly devoid of any content. He was just rambling off a list of cities in which he was holding other rallies. I bet the entire inside of his house is covered in mirrors so he can see an infinite number of himself. His fall will not be graceful.

Ymmv, void where prohibited, etc.

1. I wouldn't be surprised if he refuses to concede defeat...

...even to the point of trying to subvert the Electoral College--possibly by open threats. I think he is capable of anything.

His Tampa speech rehashed the primary races. It makes no sense and he reads off poll numbers, how is this a campaign?

19. Trump is not as stupid as he looks.

http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2016/06/23/why-trump-was-inevitable/

One of the main reasons many political commentators were surprised by Donald Trumpís success in the primaries was his willingness to take extreme positions and use unusually harsh rhetoric in talking about immigration and related issues. Indeed, Trumpís comments about Mexican immigrants and Muslims have been at the center of his campaign. And his pronouncements on these topics have greatly concerned many Republican leaders and elected officials who feared they would harm the partyís image and damage its electoral prospects. But how did his positions and comments play with Republican primary voters?

The clear answer is that they reflected the views of likely Republican voters extremely well. We asked a series of questions about Trumpís controversial proposals (banning Muslims from entering the US, building a wall on the Mexican border, and identifying and deporting illegal immigrants). On all three issues overwhelming majorities of likely Republican voters supported his positions: almost three quarters (73 percent) favored banning Muslims from entering the US, 90 percent favored identifying and deporting illegal immigrants as quickly as possible, and 85 percent favored building a wall on the Mexican border.

Trump supporters were more in favor of these proposals than supporters of other candidates, but ... large majorities of likely Republican voters who did not support Trump for the nomination did support Trumpís positions on his three central issues. Almost two thirds favored his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US and four fifths favored building the wall and identifying and deporting illegal immigrants. In fact 60 percent of non-Trump supporters took his position on all three of his distinctive issues.

37. Immigration is the only glue he has with his followers

 

and when he loses, or is bumped by the RNC, he will get busy saving his hotels, gambling on the proven loss of memory the american people have.

Sadly alot of Dems, Liberals and Libertarians also believe immigrants should all be vetted stringently like many countries concerned with employing their own citizens first.

...they will express their opinion of Trump, as he has expressed his opinion of them. I am very glad to see so many female GOP political leaders start to come over to our side, because it matters. I would love to see some specific outreach from us, as well.

31. Encourage those thoughts! I think he's nuts, too.

One of the (male) pundits on the GOP side said that Hillary is not what they want, but she is within normal parameters (he means sane and stable and knowledgeable about government) -- whereas Trump is completely unacceptable and will wreck the country.

I plan to use some of that if the opportunity arises.

26. I've been reminding conservatives that they don't have to vote for any candidate

they can leave the president field blank if they can't stomach either of them.

Trump supporters will likely make threats and use scare tactics. But the voting booth is private and no one will ever know if someone doesn't vote for Trump.

Telling them to stay home on election day would be ideal but may be too transparent in decreasing their votes for downticket races.

13. I screwed my courage to the sticking point

After reading the OP and following posts, I then went to the right wing site that I will not mention.

There are lots of them predicting/hoping for open warfare so they can use their arsenals. While we know most are just living a fantasy, but when Hillary destroys trump there will be some violence.

We all know that with the changing demographics and the liberal beliefs of the young in this country, republicans as they now exist have a short shelf life. And celebrate it.

Well, while loath to admit it, the right knows it as well. Most will move left to remain a viable opposition party , I strongly believe that a good many are looking for a gotterdammerung ending.

15. What's awesome will be that he sues the RNC for everything they have. Trump has

spent time and money on the campaign, a 'priceless' sacrifice, and the RNC and rest of GOP worked against him. He will seek not only recompense but lost value to his name, brand, and his destiny. The amount will be astronomical, and the RNC will settle, and Trump will have enriched himself through this process despite spending a minor amount of money on the primary. He will either win the general election or a huge amount of money...and I bet he's hoping for the money!

22. It won't even be close

it will be a Hillary landslide. Both America's first black president and female president will have been elected by very significant mandates. The voters will reject that unqualified racist buffoon.

Don't let the media convince us that it will be competitive. It's not. Trump is way way behind in campaign maturity, endorsements, party unity, fundraising, ground staff, and experience. His arrogance and handling of the media won't get him very far. Hillary is battle hardened and wicked smart and is surrounded by competent advisors and an army of loyal supporters who won't hesitate to destroy anyone who gets in their way. Trump's supporters are violent and loud, but they are not as loyal to him as Hillary's.

Competent people don't want to work for him because he's such an asshole and it would end their careers to be associated with a loser.

But let's not get complacent either. We can win this but it takes work.

25. When Trump loses, the GOP will...

Do what it has always done: Move farther to the right.

If trump wins, the GOP will do what it always does: Move farther to the right.

If turnip shaped space aliens land, turn every cow in North Dakota inside out and then leave, the GOP will... Move farther to the right!

If you are going to cont the number of times the conservative right is going to double-down on stupid, you had better declare the variable as a long integer, or better yet, a long long integer. And even then it's going to overflow sooner than you expected.

39. The Legal Issues Won't Go Away

Trump has a lot of legal issues coming up. The College issue, Worker wages, a possible criminal indictment for raping a 13 year old girl, or several more if they come forward, and election violations. That is what I see Trump embroiled in after he loses. He might be left penniless this time around. He claims he is already broke.
