Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think one long-term dilemma for the GOP is the possibility that Trump might buck the party and run as an independent. Given his numbers, this would create an unnerving scenario in the electoral college. In order to prevent that, the GOP has to toe to two mutually exclusive lines, catering to Trump extremists and winning back moderate conservatives. Appeasing Trumpisti appears to be the present strategy.
My personal impression is that it will be changes in society and impending legal cases that will influence the future of politics more than what the GOP and its allies could ever do. Four years are more likely to be the grave of the patriarch rather than an autumn.
