... then, even though only 31 days remain before the election, Clinton may be in Big Trouble ... or will she?
(I'm going to have to give this more thought before I pitch in.)
What do you think?
Thank you all for chipping in. The discussion was enlightening.
As for me, I know that "where there's a will. there's a way." So, modifying ballots, selecting a new ticket, getting the word out and marshaling support in the next thirty days is certainly do-able. The part of the discussion missing is: who Republicans choose at the top, and the VP. I suspect, if they got that far, they'd probably look, first, to who had the second most support in the primary. They might also look to who has the strongest current appeal among Republicans, women and independents. Certainly, Trump's core supporters have to be appeased, but Trump, himself, might help in that regard. Remember, Trump isn't dead, just a certain loser in this scenario.
Of course, I wouldn't vote for a Republican. I'm Hillary all the way (but I don't promise to be in 2020 if she doesn't live up to the hype). I add only that, given her weak approval and trustworthy numbers and the fact that, before the first debate, she was virtually neck-and-neck with Trump, would she fare better or worse against, say, Kasich or Rubio or Ryan, or even Pence, given how the media (wrongly) touted his performance?
Honestly, unless I am missing my guess, the below discussion gives more reasons for an inability to remove Trump than I expected. In fact, it reads as though Trump is preferred to be the Rep. candidate, perhaps because of the strong likelihood that he would lose, while someone else might challenge Clinton more closely.
