Has Trump already made the decision to drop Pence from the ticket?

In my opinion, it has already happened.

It happened before Pence started wearing his mask.

It's fairly obvious that Pence is not helping him in the polls. And, as we all know, if you are of no benefit to Trump personally, he really has no use for you.

He may choose Nikki Haley, to try and capture some of the women's vote and to bring new enthusiasm to some Republicans that are not happy with the direction Trump has taken the country?

When Pence started wearing the mask, that may have had much more significance than we guessed at the time?

1. Pence helps with the evangelicals.

He drops Pence, God is no longer his copilot.

10. Pence is a useful idiot to Trump though.

He's very easily replaceable, and Trump could get someone who would win over more evangelicals in half a second if he wanted to.

13. You would be hard pressed to find someone who would win over more evangelicals

Pence was selected 4 years ago for that very reason. To insulate Trump from the godless claim.

16. Yes, that is a solid block of votes he would lose....

 

he needs every single one, but it still won't get him over the top.

Besides, he is the CHOSEN ONE. Don't want to fuck with THAT.

18. The evangelicals I know don't care at all about Pence, they are TRUMP all the way to the bank.

They see Pence as an idiot as well.

Trump is so much bigger than Pence to these people.

4. Haley is another Ass-Kisser of Trump...

Which Wil not go over well being she was instrumental in taking down the Confederate flag in SC. How is she going to defend Trump on this subject? How will she defend the racial and hard line ideology of Donald Trump?

5. I don't know if he will choose Haley if he dumps Mikey

His whole schtick is racism and she is brown. His folks just might not like that choice.

Until she started standing up to him, I always thought Liz Chaney was angling for the post. I definitely think she has designs on the Oval Office, but not with this clown. Her father is too smart to let her make that choice.

6. SD Governor is who I think Trump will choose.

Well, of course if she does not have Corona. But yes, Pence is gone from Trump's ticket. Though, I am still not convinced Trump will even be on the ticket.

She looks to be a good choice but I dont think anyone can resurrect Trump at this point.

9. I'd love it. Pence is a nothing-- completely worthless.

But... dropping him at this point would indicate how completely distorted Trump's campaign is.

And Nikki Haley would be idiotic to accept that rope to the anvil that is Trump's future.

no way she would join the ticket now after how he handled the virus and his escalating racism

and didn't I read somewhere that Pence got an A+ on the maggot's loyalty test...he did swear his allegiance to Third Reich...correct?

20. He's waiting for Biden to announce his VP before Trump goes with Haley for his.

Expect it within 3 days of Biden's announcement.

24. I think he stays with Pence...

He doesn’t challenge Trump on any issue and is a useful puppet to do the “Presidenting” for DJ. As far as Nikki Haley, I think she wants Top Banana. Too much risk of ruining her entire life rescuing Trump and GOP, unless Trump/ Pence both go and there’s a new ticket altogether.

I think Republicans are basically screwed this cycle. Trump is forcing some real bad juju on just about everyone at this point. Here and there, cracks are forming. Trump may get sacrificed.

29. VPs do not make much difference unless it's a close race

and unless it's someone like Palin but even a "traditional" Republican as vp running mate , McCain would have lost although he might have had more votes.

A fucked up mess like trump is not going to be helped with a different vp pick .

31. I don't see how he can. It has nothing to do with politics--purely medical grounds

I think all that kissing of Trump's ass was done in part with indelible lipstick, and there just isn't time to surgically remove all of it safely before the election is held.

but I've yet to speak to even a single person who is impressed by her, other than people who have never voted for anyone but a republican and never will.
