Nikki will never come back wack on an old-school track.
I think I read that Haley does well head to head against Joe. In polls.
Note that if The Orange One were to shake off this mortal coil, under the rules of succession, Don Jr. would become President for Life, and then his eldest son and so forth. It's an Envar Hoxha kinda thing.
Ta, Stephen. They're all delusional.
If Trump isn't in the race for whatever reason (death, prison), none of the current candidates will get the nomination, because they aren't Trump. That's the only thing MAGA will see.
OHJB retires at the start of the Dem convention. Kamala gets nomination. ᵗᶠᵍ flees to Argentina to avoid prison time in Georgia. Nimrata gets GOP nomination. 3.14% of population turn out to vote. Manchin outpolls both with 1.41% in a three way split. Hand-basket resumes descent.
I just checked the Multiverse. In all of the 16 trillion possible versions of this reality, there is not one where Nikki Haley gets 45% of the Presidential vote.
Haley's not going to get the nomination. And even if she did it would be a pyrrhic victory because Trump would just go independent and try to burn everything and everyone to the ground
“Get used to this face, I’m not going anywhere,”
No. No, you're not going anywhere.
Let's just say Haley (or someone else) beats out Trump for the nomination. What are the chances that he and his batshit crazy mouth breathing mob of political Neanderthals accepts their defeat and he fades into whichever prison exercise yard he is relegated to first? And, the MAGAts switch their allegiance to the person who took down their Lord and Savior? No fucking way.

Where 𝘥𝘰𝘦𝘴 it resonate? As far as I can tell, "Republican country club appeal" is as dead as feathered hair.
The other day I found myself hoping Haley somehow gets the nomination, even though she would be more likely to win the general. Republicans are bad, bad human beings, but Donald Trump is not even a human being. I’ve lost the confidence I once had that he’s a proven loser and will lose again, especially with Mike Johnson in the house.
Fine. I suppose I can get used to Haley's face, seeing how her looks are the least objectionable thing about her. She's pretty on the outside.
I don’t know. Maybe she can pull this off.
Her going for it as hard as possible makes total sense, though. If Trump ends up getting convicted of a crime*, that might do the trick. And if he doesn't - still, the better she polls, the better her talking head/wingnut-grifter-circuit gigs will be.
Her optimism isn't delusional, it's strategic.
*Oh please oh please
Who is bankrolling this trip to nowhere, and, why?
"Haley boasts the MSNBC Republican country club appeal that doesn’t resonate anymore..." That's funny. My first good chuckle of the day.
