I dunno man, I think Trump will grab back a lot of votes back from the 'burn it down' crew again.

Just when you think they can't taze anymore, they turn the tazer up to 11 and blast their own bags into 2024

Who will run against him in the primary? I'm guessing we get Sasse and maybe Romney. Not expecting much opposition, really.

Dude is going to so old in 4 years.  If he won, he'd be 86 at the end of his term.

I don't think his age is going to matter much. It's not like he would be any less competent as a leader than he was the last time. I'd be a little bit surprised if he lives that long, though.

The article says he isn't going to run, he's just saying that to hang on to power. He's more likely to be in jail for tax evasion than the Republican nominee for president.

If he's still alive, he would run from prison and he would win the nomination.

The upside to running is that it would keep Gaetz/Hawley/Cotton from running.  I don't know how they could suck him off and run against him at the same time.

Yeah. I would also like to believe that he would have no shot in the general election.

GOP had many cross lines for Biden in 2020.  I imagine it will be even more if Trump is on the general ballot in 2024.  Capital storming videos will be on loop in 2024 during election adds.

Will those videos get more voters to reject Trumpism or more voters horned up to support Trump and Trump Toadies? Not sure I want to know the answer.

I think those videos would increase turnout on both sides, probably more so on the democrats' side.

Trump didn't pardon any of them either which pissed them off.  Think how crazy it would be if Proud Boys vote Dem because they are pissed Trump didn't give their buds a pardon

I would also add that Dems seem more organized than Pubs when it comes to voting and voting registration.  I imagine the Atlanta, GA template will be used moving forward for Dems.

Wow...and to think GA is now officially a battleground state.  2024 will be off the rails!

As expected state legislatures across the country are making it very difficult to vote. Among the things they're trying to do here is remove voters off the roll if they miss a single general election. They want to bar county auditors from sending absentee ballot applications, not absentee ballots but an application to receive an absentee ballot. They want to make it a felony for county election officials to "not follow election laws" which is as nebulous as it sounds.

Thirty three states have introduced 165 bills this year to restrict voting access.

i assume that the cpac attendees skew towards florida residents, but i do think that of the obvious potential 2024 republican presidential candidates, desantis is the most authentically trump-like in tone and mannerism and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he is a strong contender for the nomination.
