  • The GOP got where it is today from running neocon candidates, but fanning the flames of xenophobia, racial tensions, hypernationalism, militarism, proto-fascism, and so on. They did this so their politics could look respectable all-the-while their base could grow more toxic and more extreme and become a reliable failsafe. This is why they were blindsided by Trump in 2016. Of course they can't compete when someone shows up and just gives that base everything they want.

    To these people, Marco Rubio, Lindsay Graham and Jeb Bush were like a bag of brick mids, while Trump was a potent hit of sweet, Colorado dabs.

    Anybody who followed the TEA party saga from 2009-2015 should've seen this coming a mile away.

  • Why would republilcans not back the incumbent who not only has done more then any republican before him (in recent memory), who has not only boosted the economy, reduced taxes, and stood up to bullying democrats (which no other conservative has done (except for maybe ted cruz), who has kept us out of wars (unlike the previous four) who also has a 52% approval rating? That would make absolutely no sense on their part.

      I like him but him and Obama both took credit for fixing the economy and neither of them really did sure they both created jobs but that didn't fix it for everyone and the tax thing didn't do that much for the working man

      Yea I can agree he deserves some but many middle class people cannot get by on what they are being paid and a lot of people are still broke

      @FrostyDaHoMan Well that's because the government still taxes them into oblivion (state taxes for instance are not subject to Trumps tax cuts so blue states are pretty much always going to be taxed into oblivion (like where I live in Illinois (where our governor is considering a tax on miles driven or something absurd like that), or California or new York, etc.). Also the less money you take from businesses the more they have to give to workers (I try to explain that to people, a business is not going to cut into their profits so you raise the minimum wage (which they are doing in Illinois and Chicago) that means the amount of money they are willing to spend on workers is going to be reduced not increased which is going to result in firings and fewer hours as well as people being less likely to actually get paid for working hard (its kind of like socialism honestly, because they are forced to pay extra they don't have money left over to pay for hard work thus resulting in hard working people not working as hard and thus being less likely to get promoted and things like that, it just kills upward mobility (I should know, I've had to deal with this my entire life)). So not saying everything is great, what I'm saying is if you have the government stop meddling all the time the economy will find its natural balance and things will be much better (the more we intervene the more problems we cause).

  • i think kasich has the best chance. he's from a middle American swing state. moderate conservative who could get a lot of more centrist republicans (which is the majority of republicans)

      Kasich is a really good guy but people aren't looking for good traits they are looking for who can get them hyped up and makes waves that is how Trump won the first time.

      @FrostyDaHoMan haha. you aren't wrong. it is far more about personality than substance anymore. sometimes the two intertwine but just looking at all the past elections going back to clinton and all those who won the elections were better speakers and had much bigger and electric personalities
      clinton vs dole
      bush vs gore
      obama vs mccain
      obama vs romney
      trump vs clinton

      @RoyClark Yes, I understand. It is just wishful thinking, but I would love to have an army of Trey Gowdys in Washington.

      He's a pitbull. He's also a YouTube sensation!

  • I'd like to see Mitt Romney to run again. When he ran before I didn't like him at first, but he grew on me. I've talked to several other conservatives who said the same thing.

    I'm from Ohio, and Kasich is not even very popular here among conservatives. Ohio is a swing state, and the only bell weather state left, but I'm not so sure that he'd win the state in a general election.

  • Honestly, I think it's a Trump party for the time being. Donald Trump is more aggressive and seems to be getting more results than others. At this point, the Republicans would commit political suicide if they tried to get someone to knock Trump out. If I had to pick anyone else, I'd say either Trey Gowdy or Ben Sasse, but I have heard nothing about them.

  • None. The rethuglicunts don't have anyone that can beat Trump. The rest of them are content to just roll over and let the commiecrats ram them in the ass, and people are sick of that. You'd think the rethugs would have learned that lesson sometime in the last 30 years, but apparently they are as stupid as the commiecrats are insane and conniving.

  • All of them because Trump is a wrestling gimmick like Stone Cold or The Rock he has charisma that none of those other candidates have. It is not about who will be the best President it is a popularity contest it is also about who is always on the news always being talked about and from the looks of things the Democrats don't have a single person who can beat Trump either.

  • It's hard to beat a sitting president, so it's Trump for now.

    Anyone opposing Trump within the party will be obliterated, the only one that can beat Turmp is a suitable democracy, By suitable I mean anyone like Bernie a non conform democrat. A Hillery type will lose again.

      I think that's backwards, tbh, I think Trump -can- beat a Bernie type non-conform democrat. He barely beat Hillary who had like -20 net favorability and was being investigated by the FBI. People are so excited that he won unexpectedly they forget he barely beat one of the least popular democrat candidates ever.

      Biden would have crushed him.

      Romney would have obliterated Hillary.

      @0112358 Hope, you are right. I would love to see a change in the white house.

    • 6d

      Well, I think that's more likely than not, but there's a real chance the democrats veer hard left and send the suburbanites who hammered the republicans in the midterms back to trump.

  • I don't even know of any Republicans running.

    Trump is kind of the Republicans God by this point. Going against him as s republican is career suicide.

    Which Republican could beat President Trump in a primary?

  • None of those.
    I don't know who Hogan is.
    But it's rare for a Republican to run against a sitting Republican, or a Democrat to run against a sitting Democrat, because the voters usually just vote for the sitting president.

  • This would be an unprecedented upset as almost all sitting elected presidents were backed by their party. Franklin Pierce was the only elected president to not have that happen. Only four other presidents weren't, but they were not elected.
