Opinion | Grasping anti-Trump GOP’ers are failing to acknowledge the choice that confronts them – By Rob Schofield (Nc Newsline) / Jan 24, 2024

Barring a criminal conviction that either lands him in jail, under house arrest, or in some other status that prevents him from running for and holding office, Donald Trump is going to be the presidential nominee of the Republican Party for the third consecutive election this fall.

As veteran pollster Tom Jensen told NC Newsline recently, the notion that former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley can somehow attract enough support to deny him the nomination is almost certainly fanciful. While she enjoys a good deal of backing from the anti-Trump wing of the party and some independent voters, those factions simply aren’t nearly large enough to overcome Trump’s overwhelming support among what has become the core of the GOP.

Meanwhile, over on the Democratic side, President Joe Biden is also clearly assured of renomination. While the president certainly has his share of doubters within his party who worry about his age and/or question his handling of the impossible quagmire in the Middle East, there is no other remotely viable alternative.
