Re: Whom will be the Republican candidate when Trump drops out?

Nikki Haley a moderate? Thanks for the laugh..Anyone who is anti-union, anti-prochoice, gets a 100% rating from the NRA, gets a high score from the anti-tax Club for Growth, is not a moderate.

My prediction is Pence will drop out, not Trump. He will claim he had a revelation from God to become SOS and he will say Trump accepted his offer. This will make way for Nikki Haley to become Trump's running mate and will win back the women vote while keeping the evangelical vote in tact. I think ...

My educated guess if an issue that comes up preventing Trump for running for re-election especially in March or later, it will be an open convention and the establishment Republicans will do what ever possible to get Nikki Haley the nomination.
