9. That could be very problematic. They might have to do a write-in campaign, depends on the state

and the ballot rules

5. Anything other than Trump at the top of the ticket…

…would be a disaster for us.

HRC's positives are very low, and the saving grace for her was that she was facing a Republican even less popular. Pence already got plaudits for his "likability" in last week's debate, and I'm not sure there's enough time to paint him as an extremist, particularly if he gets to duck the remaining debates because of the "unusual circumstances."

12. It's too fucking late

Parties choose who is on the ballot. But voters vote for a person. The delegates then vote however the hell they want in the Electoral College. People are already voting, and the are voting for Trump or Clinton. Not Republican or Democrat.

Now, the Republican party can try to convince trump's delegates to become faithless and vote for a different candidate, say Romney. Then they can have a big campaign letting all voters know that pulling the lever for Trump really means Romney. Now, do I need to explain all the reasons that will not work?

-Trump's delegates are jihadist radical in their support for Trump and hatred of Romney.

-40% of Republican Voters will think the fix is in and stay home. Maybe even become violent. And that would be ironic because their anger would shift from Hillary to the Repubs.

-The party will have no moderates left.

-And Trump would have to publically agree to it and encourage his supports to switch to Romney. They cannot fire him.


This is a great day to be a liberal. Well, besides the frightening knowledge that someone like this was so close to becoming president.
