Senate Majority leader?

If they do maintain control of the Senate, what are the odds of the Republicans deciding that McConnell is too toxic and choose someone else to be the majority leader? If they think that he could cost them seats in the mid-term they might decide that a more "moderate" Republican could serve them better.

4. True but a Trump loss might shake them.

If they see the election results as a push back against their policies then they might do it. Remember, these are career politicians, not voters.

2. Nonsense. He will be perceived to have held the fort for them this election.

A majority of his cohorts are as twisted and toxic as he is.

3. Little to none, they do not have the balls to go against him

He will have to die or retire.

5. McConnell's war chest is way too big

He can crook his finger and get big donors to fund their campaigns -- or not.
