Friendly Reminder: There’s Still Time for a New GOP Nominee

I wrote a few weeks ago that the GOP can and should vacate the GOP nomination and install a replacement for Donald Trump.

Technically, it’s still not too late.  The process takes 40 days at least 10 days and must be completed by the time the Electoral College meets on December 19th.

Will it happen? No. But we should be very clear that, if it doesn’t happen, it is because the leadership of the Republican Party chose to stand by Donald Trump.

That’s all! Good night!

UPDATE 9 October 2016: I’ve learned that the 40-day process could possibly be short-circuited by a motion to suspend the rules.

    I’ve been flitting back and forth between the Libertarian ticket and the GOP one. I would really love it if Trump would win and then simply resign, and we get President Pence. Because, at this point, the sole reason I would vote for the GOP ticket is because of Pence.

    EDIT: Also, is there a way to look at the results of the survey without re-taking the survey?

      No idea. As administrator, I just get insta-access to the results. But I WILL be writing about the results, as soon as I have the time and guts to process them.
