Oh, I don't know. Cruz, Hawley, Hogan, probably about a dozen others we haven't heard from yet. Don't forget, they had 20 plus Republicans running in 2016.

In 2016 there was a complete power vacuum. That was before anyone took Trump seriously. Now, if you run in 2024 you are basically double crossing Trump, in his eyes. I think that could limit the size of the pool of candidates this time around. We've yet to see what a gop primary looks like in the Trump era.

Sparing you the math, if it's not DeSantis or Trump, I think the dark-horse option would be Rubio.

This might be the post-Trump era based on the mid-terms.

I'll consider it the post-Trump era when the GOP is no longer scared of crossing him. But yeah it's possible 24 will be that year.

Also, no telling whether he'll get indicted and what affect that will have if he does.

I could see him as the kind of boring candidate the establishment Republicans would get to run but it wouldn't amount to anything in a primary race, for the same reason Walker didn't, he's just a cookie cutter Republican with nothing remarkable about him, they're gonna need more than that to win over the Trump base.

Hogan
Who?

I assume you don't mean Hulk Hogan, but honestly I'm not sure.

Yeah and look how that turned out.

I'm talking about my Governor, Larry Hogan of Maryland. He is considered a moderate and has been one of Trump's fiercest critics. If you watch the news networks, you may have seen him on there, especially during the peak of the Covid crisis.

Like I said, he is a moderate and, as such, probably has no chance at nomination, but that doesn't stop him from being touted as a potential candidate in 2024. And he certainly is a voice for reason in what is presently a very unreasonable party.

If the dems don't come to win and it's based solely on voting on a Republican to keep Trump from winning again, I'll vote Republican. and I have way more disagreements with that side than I do with the left though I fall in the middle on some issues. Based solely on the fact that I don't want another Trump white house.

Basically the dems better come ready to win.

Hell even Romney would be a solid choice though I don't know if that would or could happen.

Romney wouldn't have a chance with this radical bunch.

I could see myself voting for a Republican too in the right scenario. If Hilary Clinton had gotten the nomination in 2008 over Obama, I was ready to vote for McCain for example. My disdain for Hilary Clinton started when she played the outrage card and forced MSNBC to suspend a commentator that year. So, yeah, the Dems can't keep taking the left and minorities for granted, even in these shaky times.

People like you should probably be barred from voting tbh.
