I still think Trump can win this election, but if and only if he can do with this KKK/Duke thing what he did with Megyn Kelly, McCain, blanket Muslim Ban (instead of just lowering Muslim immigration, which people would’ve supported) etc., and something tells me he may have gone too far for the general election, even tho southern hicks will eat him up on Tuesday.
If Trump loses because of independent voters and voters of the religious right who don’t quite trust him, which does seem to be an issue, and the establishment sabotages him, who do they nominate in 2020 to go against President Hillary Clinton?
I suspect it will be one of the following:
Nikki Haley - she’ll have more experience by then than Rubio serving one term. She’ll lack the Gang of Eight stigma that will demolish Rubio tomorrow night. She’ll be on hand to take some of that female vote from Hillary. Her anti-choice credentials are rather strong, but not too strong like Rubio; Haley believes in exceptions for life of mother, rape/incest.
Marco Rubio - the GOP establishment will martyr him, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him shoot for a governorship or a House seat. He made a mistake resigning from the Senate pending the end of his term, which is soon.
Allen West - military service, political experience, which together make him more “qualified” than Rubio, and most importantly, non-white skin, so unlike Rubio, he’s not an empty dark suit (pun intended).
and probably a bunch more I can’t think of
