In any case, he is unique in Republican politics and I am having a hard time visualizing where the party will go after him. I just don't see the party coming up with someone most Trump supporters can identify with. Perhaps I am wrong, I would like to see what people who identify strongly with Trump think.

Some thoughts: Is there anyone in the white house today that appeals to Trump supporters and would be true to the legacy of Donald J. Trump? Stephen Miller? Mulvaney? ... Ivanka?

... or how about Steve Bannon? ... how about Mark Meadows?
These people appeal to me but they can't win and get around the establishment democrat media. And they can't appeal to the nearly useless "moderates" who can't make up their minds or see reality, but who decide most elections.

Legalization of "soft" drugs like marijuana is another example; I myself don't use it, but have no objection if I'm outvoted. But I'm all for mandatory, privately-administered testing in the upper echelons of the private and most safety-conscious sectors. And if most hard-core druggies turn out to vote Democratic (ugh!), so much the better for the rest of us.
