My answer to If Trump loses the election, will the political careers of top Republicans who endorsed him be over?
Answer by Abbey Laurel-Smith:
There are two types of Republicans that comes to mind with this type of question.
- First is the elected office holders – the ones that are in Congress. They are on the spotlight now and are working their butts off to keep their seats and maintain the majority in Washington – and hopefully gain more Senatorial seats in the coming general election. They are playing it all safe now. It is the only way to keep the party going in the face of this invasion and take over by a Democrat – Trump.
- Second are the so-called established Republicans. They are non-office holders, and are more susceptible to loose their party affiliated posts because of manner of grass root campaign. Their streamlined focus on swing interest groups rather than popular party base, and let’s say, party’s fundraising activities. But never because of Trump. They are most likely to get the boot because, Trump representing the party for this on coming election officially makes him a party leader. Thus deposing Ryan – as the third in line to the current President in office.
Can you imagine this ever happening! Trump, a Democrat, now leading the Republican party. Funniest thing is, neither him or any of his sons are registered Republicans.
