4. That's a very good guess.. I think there's a chance that they'll turn to Ol' Mittster, as well.

2. What is the process? How does this happen? I always thought Huntsman was decent.

3. Yeah, I think he's self-destructing at an astonishing rate.

 

I say Kaisch, too. And he will know that he's a sacrifice for the party and that he stands no chance of winning.

5. It's not going to matter,if Trump gets dumped after winning

the primary,his voters will revolt. The odds are Trump would run 3rd party just to save face,he's a narcissist,they don't handle rejection well.

6. That's a possibility, too. Today, with all the Establishment Repubs jumping ship...seems like they

 

may have something planned...

11. They could have something planned,but if they toss

him out,they'll be doing it to save their party and willingly losing the presidential election. I think they lose with or without Trump,if they think so too,they may move to cut their losses and kick him out before he pulls them down with him. Their greatest incentive to do it may be to save down ticket races.

9. Repubs may prefer to lose with Kasich (or whoever) rather than risk winning with Trump. (n/t)

8. I think there is a reasonable chance that we won't be voting in Nov.

 

for either Trump nor Clinton...

The pieces are there to make that happen and only time will tell.

10. They can't.

 

Done deal, dude.

Only Trump can dump Trump from the Republican ticket now, and I don't see the piece of shit going anywhere.

13. They can but it's hard to imagine they would. It would start with the rules committtee

 

http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/12/politics/gop-convention-rules-committee/

They would pass some sort of rule that had the effect of disqualifying Trump and then it would be an open and contested convention. The trick is, a majority of the delegates to the convention have to approve the rules committees rules for the convention and guess whose delegates are the majority of the convention due to the voting?

So Trump would have to do something so egregious that most of his delegates would want someone else to be the nominee.

14. Since every last egregious thing Trump has done to date....

 

has only EMBOLDENED every last damned one of the bigots who are his delegates, fat chance at changing the rules after the game was played.

17. This scenario is far more plausible than SDs over-ruling voters and installing Bernie.

Which is a strangely popular theory in GDP.

A delegate revolt at the GOP Convention seems unlikely, but if he keeps up this outrageous outright racism and his poll numbers continue to sink as Democrats unite behind Hillary...I don't think it is impossible.

16. Good luck to the GOPigs on that one.

They'd need to convince the Trumpster Fire's own delegates to approve a rule change disqualifying him.

18. If that happens, it will turn Hillary's already likely fall victory into a cakewalk

Trump and his brownshirts will destroy the GOP for a generation.

I am sure you and the Berniebots here are salivating at the mouth of Sanders in the GE, even as the republican
