This Mueller report ought to make it easier for additional GOP to come out to primary Trump.

They should no longer be afraid. Trump has been exposed and so has Barr. Take them both down. No GOP can beat the candidate the Democrats will put forth.

1. Democratic primary voters should make sure our candidate can beat not only Trump

but any Republican that steps into the breech.

2. I do not believe the 2020 Presidential election will be easy at all.

The GOP will primary drumpf and they will have several formidable candidates that will be sane and very electable.

3. They can try but his base is crazy, and a Republican who tries and primary him

will not only be in physical danger, there is no way they can win. The percentage of republicans who still support this nut is around 80 percent.

4. IIRC the RNC has done away with primaries for now...

IIRC any Republican wishing to challenge Trump will essentially have to run as a third-party candidate.

5. Since the delegates to the convention will be chosen by the state legislatures

 

Opponents like Weld would have to lobby the legislatures to get delegates, don't even bother with campaigning to the public.

6. I don't think other Republicans will run against Trump

Adding candidates just splits the opposition. Makes more sense for Trump opponents to back Weld than run themselves.
