In Texas, no one asks.
If Trump runs in 2020 and there is no credible GOP opponent for him, I'll vote in the Dem primary, and vote for a normal, non-progressive candidate, if there is one.

That's why I wrote independent (non-partisan/decline to state is the actual term in Ca) vs. Independent, an actual party (apparently).

Depends on the party preference, whether I get to vote in the primary. I think in the last, as a registered decline, I could have picked from 2 or 3 primary voting cards, but once I made that selection I had to chose among that party's candidates.

In PA pubs get to vote in the pub primary and dems in the dem primary. End of story.

No, I don't think Trump is a altruistic person. He has made a lot of money since coming to office and he's ensured that he will make even more money once he leaves the presidency.

He's not the president because he is looking to help people. He's in it for the power and to drive his greed.

Perhaps. We will never know. But "all boats have risen" in a major way, since he took office.

So what were the other issues again??

Who would that be? They must already be on the public stage, in order to secure a candidacy, right?

Hopefully Bloomberg will run. I could definitely vote for him.

If it's just a progressive leftist though, I'll just pray for third-party ticket.

Sources of indicated Kasich might run as an independent, as well as Mark Cuban. All three of the people I mentioned would be far superior to Donald Trump.

Good grief, man!

Bloomberg, maybe. But Kasich is a complete moron/wimp and Cuban is essentially a liberal Texan Trump. That guy has an ego and greed factor that would even put Trump to shame.

Bloomberg - isn't he the billionaire that banned sodas in NYC? Was he successful in his tenure as mayor?

Cuban - so I guess his legacy as a Republican didn't work out, when Trump rejected him as VP. Then he switched to Democrat, and got no political traction there either. Didn't know he was now an independent? That track record would concern me, to say the least...

Kasich - maybe he can run on his platform of open borders? Hopefully he won't eat in front of the cameras again...

You need to go to nonfiction news sources, replace this fictional stuff you're reading.
