    Is jhmd running? Is that why he canít post anymore behind an anonymous username?
    We're going to be good again.

All he can do is siphon a few votes from Weld. More people want Bill di Blasio to be president than Sanford. He's in Maryanne Williamson territory.

    Sanford is a weird case. Heís a fairly likable political figure but he has a tough personal and political scandal to come back from. His politics are far less likable than his persona but he gets props for being willing to stand up to Trump.

    He is not quite as bad since he continued in politics post governorship. He has ties to Florida and SC. The Appalachian Trail incident is very Trumpesque. Would be interesting to see someone other than a Democrat bring some heat to Trump.

    Both Sanford and Weld are damaged goods - Sanford because of the scandal and Weld because he ran as veep on the Lib ticket last time out, which won't sit well with the party. Hogan or Baker would be better and more popular candidates, but I doubt either would still top 20% v. Trump. It's a cult.

    As long as there is somebody he needs to focus on - someone who will relentlessly antagonize him and with a clear flaw (Sanford and Weld are ideal) - then Trump and his social media machine will be tired once we get to the general.

    The Republican Party is broken for the next decade post-Trump, but they could send out a sacrificial candidate to do some damage to Trump (body shots) and distract him from the Dems until the general.

    You underestimate the Republican party.

    Twenty percent of all federal circuit court judges were appointed by Trump and pushed through by McConnell. These are lifetime appointments handed out to people in their 30s. Twenty percent of judgeships in 2 years. McConnell held these seats open for a reason.

    Not just that. Just think of the damage Trump could do to the federal judiciary and everything else if reelected. And I'd give him at least a 30-40% chance of being reelected.
