127. One nice thing - any would-be-replacement for Trump won't be able to demagogue like him.

Hell, even Trump can't demagogue like 2016 Trump did.

Pence might try the Nuremberg Rally strategy and try for more MAGA rallies, but they'll be snoozefests. And I'm not sure who else in the GOP would be willing to step in the ring. Remember the dynamic - the only thing Trump has is the bigotry - that right there is the core of his damned cult. Any replacement for Trump will try to patch over the damage down-ticket by going back to condemning open racism and trying for the dogwhistle. That will fail to energize the chud base, and fail to fool anyone on our side of the aisle, who's seen the dogwhistling tricks a million times.

The best the GOP can hope for is to try to save their Senate majority.

I'd say the odds right now I'd estimate are 65% Trump sticks it out to the end and gets slaughtered this November. 35% says he takes the coward's road and bails. The rest of the GOP is probably trying to talk him into bailing right now, but Trump's probably at the hissy-fit stage of the discussion.
