I only write any of this because, well, no one can predict the future. But it is at least within the realm of possibility that Trump’s moment has come and gone and, as such, he won’t even be the Republican nominee.
Now, absolutely nothing points to this at the moment other than Nikki Haley surging in the polls. And, really, it definitely seems as though no matter what, because of the cult-like obsession with Trump on the part of MAGA that even if she over performs in Iowa and New Hampshire, she would crash and burn once we reach Southern states.
And this doesn’t even begin to address how Trump will probably run as a third party candidate if somehow, miraculously, Haley manages to be a political giant slayer.
But, as I have said — I can’t predict the future. And while Haley is Not Great relative to my political POV, she at least seems like someone who will stay within democratic norms.
Only time will tell, I suppose.
For the time being, it definitely seems as though it will be Biden versus Trump again and, well, Godspeed.
