Trump's days are numbered.

He is 77 years old and will be 78 in June.

If Trump dies while seeking reelection, a few different things could
happen, depending on when he dies and how close it is to Election Day.

There's no national deadline to file to run for president of the United
States. Instead, filing deadlines vary depending on the state and party.

There are currently eight declared candidates, including Trump, on the GOP
side. If Trump were to die before January 1, 2024, there would likely be
other Republicans who want to jump into the race.

Many states' filing deadlines have already passed, however, meaning that
state election officials would need to adjust them to allow new candidates
to enter the race.

If Trump died during primary season — which ends in mid-June — some states
may postpone their scheduled primaries.

There's some precedent for this; at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic,
more than a dozen states postponed their primaries or expanded vote-by-mail
options.

If Trump died after the last primary contest but before the Republican
National Convention, the other GOP presidential candidates would have to
make a case to every state delegation at the convention for why they should
be the party's nominee.

And if Trump secured the GOP nomination but died between the convention and
Election Day 2024, the RNC would convene to select another presidential
candidate.

Voters elect Electors not Presidents. Electors will still elect
someone, or throw it to Congress. States can leave him on the
ballot with the understanding that if the dead man wins (not the
brain dead man), the republican Electors can vote for another
republican, with the state or that party urging them who to vote
for. If he dies between the EC vote and inauguration, the vice
president elect gets inaugurated as president.

Trump's days are numbered.
He is 77 years old and will be 78 in June.
Biden is 81 years old and will be 82 in November.

Other than being slightly lighter, Biden is mentally more challenged than
trump, and physically much more feeble...

So in every category but body weight Trump is superior in age, mental and
physical aspects.

So tell us who's days are numbered?

Another bit of scooter's empty wheeze, i.e. a scooterism:

"Further..." [empty padding]
"Naturally, ..." [empty padding]
"And just like that..." [scooter going "nyah-nyah" at an opponent immediately
before fleeing]
"On the contrary..." [scooter childishly disputing, *never* refuting]
"And yet..." [empty padding; scooter adding something irrelevant and pointless]
"Heck..." [empty padding]
"Well..." [empty padding]
"After all..." [empty padding]
"In fact..." [empty padding]
"Indeed..." [empty padding}
"I acknowledge that..." [something that hasn't happened, so not subject to
acknowledgment]
"So what you're saying..." [what follows is *always* something the opponent
*never* said, i.e. a straw man]
"TRANSLATION:..." [the same as "so what you're saying..." — a straw man]
"Rudy/Baxter/Lee admits..." same as "so what you're saying" and "TRANSLATION:.."
— a straw man]
"Where in the Constitution does it say..." [about shit that wouldn't *be* in the
Constitution anyway]
"it's" [he means the possessive "its"]
"its" [he means the contraction "it's"]
"where" [he means "were"]
"were" [he means "where"]
"creditability" [he means "credibility"]

Or if a wooden stake hadn't been placed through his heart he could rise
from the dead and all the above would be moot.

The only danger from K is if JOE pops an artery (again)
or becomes too senile for rescue even by the best pharmas.

Trump IS getting old and fat. There IS some risk. However
it'd be HIS VP who would become POTUS automatically, not K.

We'd be a LOT safer with his VP.

Trump could also be totally impeached/disqualified either
just after election or shortly after Jan 20th. In that
case his VP would, again, become POTUS.

If disqualified BEFORE the election, the GOP candidate
with the next highest number of electoral credits is
supposed to become THE candidate. That'd be Haley,
which would be OK.

Everybody knows K is a total mush-brain - even the Dems
don't want her in the picture but can't figure how to
push her out at this juncture. K is Biden's insurance
policy, his Dan Quayle, SO bad that you HAVE to keep Joe.

I agree - I've killfiled all sorts of twits in lots of newsgroups
through the years. I've never saw fit to discuss it publicly but most
of the time I use Agent's feature that you can specify a number of
days to killfile somebody or make it permanent.

He's been in two elections and lost the popular vote in both of them.

Trump is a loser.

In 2016, when he *won*, the GOP lost two Senate and six House seats.
In 2018, in his mid terms, the GOP lost 41 seats giving Dems control
of the House for the first time in nearly a decade.
In 2020, when he lost, the GOP also lost the Senate.
In 2021 and 2022 they lost most of their Special Elections.
In 2022, a year of opposition mid terms, rampant inflation, exploding gas prices
and record low popularity ratings for the opposition in
the White House, they only gained 9 seats for control but lost
another Senate seat, and almost all of Trump's endorsees lost.
In 2022-2023 They continued to lose Special Elections.

Trump's endorsees are still losing.

Oh, btw, in 2008 before the shit hit the fan, our economy was about the same size as the
EU's. Today, it's almost twice the size.

He's been in two elections and lost the popular vote in both of them.
Trump is a loser.
Justin Trudeau was 'won' 3 elections and lost the popular vote in #2
and #3.
Apples and oranges. We vote for a candidate for President.
Do you?
No, you do not vote for your Prime Minister. Your party chooses him (or
her). Entirely different systems.
Would you be happier if I said "and his party lost the popular vote in
the last two federal elections"?

After all there are 338 federal electoral districts in Canada and
there will be more after the electoral redistribution commission gets
done and the new districts implemented. I believe the American term is
"redistricting" (obviously this is House only)

Our system is pretty unique. You can win more votes and still lose.
Show me another Democracy that does that.

Show me any other system of government that awards the office to the one
with less votes.

Or sport... unless we're talking maybe golf. But even there, the
better man wins because the idea is to do something with less attempts.

Canada for one - 2 of the last 3 elections have put a party in power
without a plurality in the votes. (2019 and 2021)

It's theoretically possible in ANY jurisdiction where you have local
elections for seats and one party wins each district by a differing
number of votes - for instance if one party wins by margins of 50000+
votes in their districts and loses by margins of 1000 in other
districts, if there are more districts they lose they win they can
easily have more votes but less seats.

This can even happen in countries with proportional representation
systems when the seats are proportionally distributed by state. (Or in
Germany where this happened by 'lander' which is effectively the same
thing)

The United States is by no means unique in this respect.

So did the side that got LESS votes take power? Cuz that's what happens
here, fairly frequently.

It's mathematically possible in ANY system that does not have a
nation-wide vote but rather elects representatives by some
sub-national area like congressional districts. Even as demonstrated
in that German example of proportional representation by state or
province.

And yes - Justin Trudeau has had a plurality of seats three times
(which allegedly is a 'win') but only got a plurality of votes once -
and the last two times didn't get to 35% of the national vote.

Rhino has quoted polls suggesting the winning party in the next
election is likely to get dramatically more than that.

Plurality works here too. That's how Clinton won.

But this isn't that. This is the guy who gets LESS votes than his
opponent taking office.

Everybody knows K is a total mush-brain - even the Dems
don't want her in the picture but can't figure how to
push her out at this juncture. K is Biden's insurance
policy, his Dan Quayle, SO bad that you HAVE to keep Joe.
You seriously think that absent Biden, K is a serious presidential
candidate? As in "in the same way Vice President Hubert Humphrey was a
serious candidate in 1968?"

HHH was "more serious" than K - by wide margin. As much
of a dick that, um, Dick was we're still lucky HHH was
SUCH a crappy candidate.

In '68 the Dems were kinda caught out. LBJ could have
cruised to re-election (despite the Vietnam mess) but
by that time knew he could not survive another term,
his docs made it clear he'd blow a gasket. Bobby K
WOULD have been the fall-back ... but should have
stayed out of the kitchen. So, time short, they had
to pick *somebody* people had at least heard of and
HHH had age/experience, was VP, and we saw him on
TV enough so he wasn't some total stranger. Had
a catchy funny name too ! Humphrey-Dumptie :-)

Just TOO boring/dull alas. I don't immediately know
whether Wallace hurt Nixon or HHH the most ... but
in the 60s the "southern Democrats" really seemed
to like Wallace and his hard-line on race issues.

K was just some lower-level crime-loving official,
never got an inch of electoral traction and would
have been instantly forgotten. But ... Joe needed
his Dan Quayle plus K is 'black' and female and
that scores points with Gen-X/Y

Most believe morbidly obese, mentally and physically feeble old druggie
Trump's days are numbered.
He is 77 years old and will be 78 in June.
If Trump dies while seeking reelection, a few different things could
happen, depending on when he dies and how close it is to Election Day.
There's no national deadline to file to run for president of the United
States. Instead, filing deadlines vary depending on the state and party.
There are currently eight declared candidates, including Trump, on the GOP
side. If Trump were to die before January 1, 2024, there would likely be
other Republicans who want to jump into the race.
Many states' filing deadlines have already passed, however, meaning that
state election officials would need to adjust them to allow new candidates
to enter the race.
If Trump died during primary season ? which ends in mid-June ? some states
may postpone their scheduled primaries.
There's some precedent for this; at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic,
more than a dozen states postponed their primaries or expanded vote-by-mail
options.
If Trump died after the last primary contest but before the Republican
National Convention, the other GOP presidential candidates would have to
make a case to every state delegation at the convention for why they should
be the party's nominee.
And if Trump secured the GOP nomination but died between the convention and
Election Day 2024, the RNC would convene to select another presidential
candidate.
