This whole campaign it’s been, “What happens to the Republican Party after this?” If Trump’s campaign gets R’s both houses, states, and the presidency, they’ll fall in line (why wouldn’t they?).
What do democrats do if they lose? They’ll have lost EVERYTHING, even with the most ‘palatable’ candidate. Centrism will be a complete failure for D’s. Do they double down? Shift left? Shift right? Splinter? How does a party which was GIFTED this election live down a potential loss?
This is early in the night, but I like playing hypotheticals. I may be the devil’s advocate.
