I like Hewitt, like his show. Uber smart, and good temperament for a Republican.
Thing is, Trump’s campaign is not going to be serious and credible in volume and content. IE, Trump will be Trump and he comes without a real campaign effort doing GOTV and all the other things that…. ARE NECESSARY. His defeat will be because he’s a deficient candidate, and this is foreseeable here 5 months from election day.
There is of course a whole bunch of the GOP that is happy thoughts / magic thinking, and believes we’ll see a preference cascade for Trump come election… and they are wrong, and there’s no helping them perhaps.
But there are plenty of GOPers who see this coming. If you’ve got proper sense and can see this coming you just do not watch it happen, you intervene. He could get excised here somehow.
I do not know who runs then, but it may not actually be a terribly important question.
Update: you here Scott Walkers name bandied. That would be fine.
