Would this not also remove him from the general, even if he's the GOP nominee?

well, while I always hate to admit it, NKTOB is right
just primary

I think the GOP could nominate anyone if they want to regardless of what the states do

it's weird, you think it would be bad news for stuff like this to happen to a POTUS candidate, but if anything, it looks like it will bring people to the polls

Voting still happens at the state level. Trump might have to get on the general election ballot as an independent or a write-in, but he wouldn't appear as a Republican. I think. Just spitballing here, could be wrong.

not unless a lot more states join in on not having him on the ballot.  he can easily still get the nom without CO and ME.

I think the GOP could nominate anyone if they want to regardless of what the states do

wait, are you suggesting that the GOP could put forth a candidate for the general election even if that candidate didn't win their primary?  i.e., "eff you republican primary voters, we're going with our guy over who you chose"??

Well, maybe not.
I was thinking how they didn't hold primaries in many states for the GOP because he was the incumbent
didn't realize that was standard in both parties and over time

But I could see that if he's off the ballot on a few states and wins a majority of the others, they would pull something like that

Not to revisit the Dems in 2008 but thereís absolutely a path where a party could put forth a nominee who did not win the required primaries. Thereís so much political fanfic written about this.

Lol but the vast majority of Republican voters want him to be the nominee

i.e., "eff you republican primary voters, we're going with our guy over who you chose"??

i'm not saying otherwise.  i was trying to understand the hypothetical put forward by hatch, wherein the candidate in the general isn't the winner of the party's primary.

I agree with it, but it will defiantly bring ALL the crazies to the polls
