1. I don't think the running mate automatically goes to the top of the ticket.

AFAIK the party has to go back and nominate somebody; that person would choose a running mate, not necessarily the original one, and the party would have to accept that ticket. It would be a goat rodeo for sure, since ballots everywhere would have been printed and some people would already have voted. I don't think those early votes would necessarily be given automatically to the new ticket, but I really don't know.

Whatever else happens, though, the situation would be greatly improved if TFG is no longer with us. But he's been looking like crap for a long time, and Satan has yet to call him home.
