Who would try and pull that off? Paul Ryan is done for and he's headed for a more lucrative career as a lobbyist for the Heritage Foundation or something.

I have no idea. Maybe another political outsider/dark horse, like Trump himself.

The rich, powerful, and evangelical.

Yes, Trump, the guy who had an affair with a pornstar, cares about if someone is evangelical or not.

Which is the base. But those evangelicals are still perfectly fine with Trump or Pence regardless of what they do.

Increasingly I'm in agreement, if just to bring a halt to the ridiculous partisanship in politics now, start afresh.

Anyone noticed a change of tone in some of Trump's tweets, if he's not railing at the conspiracy then he's all 'from your favourite president, 'cheerio good people', 'enjoy Sunday, enjoy a Sundae!

More like he cares about appeasing them, and thus would be inclined to push their agenda.

If you've been electrocuting gays on your own time then that's your problem. Even if Pence had been President then I strongly doubt he would have reimbursed you.
