This is kind of a perfect way for Trump to lose if you are like me and any rational person and dislike the modern Republican Party.
Instead of thinking "boy we need to not treat gays/women/hispanics/blacks/transgendered/muslim americans so badly" most of the Republican base is going to cling on to the idea that Trump would of won had this scandal not happened. And in 4 years, they'll try running Trump version 2.0 or they'll turn some seemingly half sane candidate into running so far right that he'll be damaged goods.
This is the party that gave us George W. Bush. Rick Perry. Sarah Palin. Ben Carson. Now Donald Trump.
It will be amazing to see them learn absolutely nothing and push their party one step further down the path of oblivion. Instead of some half-way inclusive policies, their insane base will cause them to once again run on insane policies and anti-everyone not white and christian rhetoric.
They're finished as a national party. They're damaging their name as badly as possible, still standing for Trump. They've destroyed any chance at the hispanic vote. And they're destroying the female vote. And they are showing once and for all that they take the evangelical vote not serious at all. When guys like Pence and Huckabee and other "christian" leaders stand behind a man who is obviously a sexual predator, that damages the Republican brand amongst evangelicals.
Trump is helping destroy the Republican party as are all the nuts, like quite a few on here and they are too dumb to realize it. That's the perfect part. There is not going to be any deep reflection after Trump loses, there isn't going to be any new plan or platform.
It's going to be the nutcases blaming everything and anything but themselves and the world we become just a little less white and a little less racist and a little less homophobic and a little less misogynistic and a little less religious and the Republican base will shrink, but still be crazy and angry enough to not let their leaders change.
The problem of course is that if the Republicans are going to stay insane. The Democrats are going to win with idiots like Hillary who can be centre right.
Having one party that is an absolute joke, lets the other party seem good by comparison. Which is sad, because Hillary and the Democrats that support her aren't going to do much other than kick the can down the road.
So my advice to anyone is you better get relatively wealthy soon if you plan on living for 40 years or more. Cause shit is likely going to get pretty terrible for poor people in America.
