Notwithstanding their supposed pledge not to leave the party, I think it is possible, and maybe even likely, that Donald Trump and Ben Carson will leave the Republican fold. They will do so in order to form their own ticket, with Trump the nominee for president and Carson for Veep.
Of course, if Trump continues to remain in the lead and continues as well to be given a pass by the other GOP nominee wannabes for his inane and offensive statements, he’ll have neither the desire nor need to take off. As time goes on, though, I predict that either his lead or the public display of tolerance exhibited towards him by the Republican leadership will come to an end. And then we’ll see the new party.
The name of their soon-to-be party? Lots of possibilities there (and coming up with some might even make for an enjoyable ‘party game’). How about:
The America Party
The American Way
The Free America Party
The Let’s Put the ‘Us’ Back in the USA Party
More seriously, does anyone else see a non-Republican Trump-Carson ticket as a possibility?
(I seldom visit this forum and although I did a quick search, I may have missed a similar thread - you get a lot of hits for the names Trump and Carson. If so, I do apologize.)
