Maybe we should just elect Trump president... again?
« on: February 23, 2021, 04:41:08 am »
a thread for 45's post-insurrection career, and the future of the GOP.

Trump to tell CPAC he is Republican 'presumptive 2024 nominee' – report
Unnamed source tells news site Axios Trump’s speech to the rightwing event will have the message ‘I’m still in charge’

selected quotes:

Jason Miller, said: “Trump effectively is the Republican party. The only chasm is between Beltway insiders and grass-roots Republicans around the country. When you attack President Trump, you’re attacking the Republican grass roots.”
(...)
Polling of Republicans who have not left the party, however, shows the former president with a clear lead over a range of potential 2024 candidates, supportive of him or not, in a notional primary.
(...)
Trump’s grip on his party is clear. New polling from Suffolk University and USA Today showed 46% of Trump voters would follow him if he formed his own party while 42% said his impeachment had strengthened their support. The same poll said 58% of Trump voters subscribed to an outright conspiracy theory: that the Capitol riot was “mostly a [leftwing] antifa-inspired attack that only involved a few Trump supporters”.

In reality, many of more than 250 individuals charged over the attack have been found to have links to far-right groups.
(...)
The former Republican strategist Stuart Stevens said Scalise was “saying that America isn’t a democracy. That’s become the new standard of the Republican party. Not since 1860s has a large part of the country refused to accept election. The Republican party is an anti-democratic force.”


discuss.

Neither for nor against. I don’t believe pausing it till 2022 is a bad idea tho.
