Let’s all hope this comes to pass…

Donald Trump may drop out of the 2020 presidential race if he believes he has no chance of winning, a Republican Party operative reportedly told Fox News.

The claim comes in a report in the president’s favourite news outlet that cites a number of GOP insiders who are concerned about Mr Trump’s re-election prospects amid abysmal polling numbers.

Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, currently holds an average lead of nine points over the incumbent, according to a tracker of 2020 polls by RealClearPolitics.

Crucially, Mr Trump has lost support from older white voters — typically a bedrock of support for the Republican Party and a group that was crucial to his narrow 2016 victory. Mr Trump is also trailing the former vice president in almost all the swing states.

“It’s too early, but if the polls continue to worsen, you can see a scenario where he drops out,” one anonymous GOP operative told Fox News.

While there’s a part of me that believes Donald Trump is a big enough man-baby to actually drop out before losing to former Vice President Joe Biden there’s another part of me that thinks Trump will stay in the race to avoid being seen as a one-term disaster.

    maybe he will drop out, but may never leave until we evict him.

    I really think this is wishful thinking. My take is President Trump would rather run and lose and blame vote fraud than be tagged a quitter.

    Why let the Republican party off the hook so easily? They lined up behind this guy – knowing exactly what they were getting. Lindsey Graham even said it out loud – it should destroy the party and they do deserve it.
