- Trump won’t drop out. I can’t imagine his colossal ego allowing him to entertain the notion;
- If he does, the GOP is screwed. The ballots are already printed. It’s too late to even add a write-in in most states;

- The chances his psychotic followers will do something violent & stupid have increased to a frightening degree.
