Make the GOP Normal Again

With Donald Trump somehow still killing it in the polls, the GOP needs a unified opposition to wrest the base from his control. There’s no time to waste. The field must narrow immediately so Republicans can rally around a single candidate.

There really only are three options. Vivek Ramaswamy is arrogantly challenging each candidate while keeping Trumpers happy. Ron DeSantis is staying quiet and composed, weighing in only when necessary. Nikki Haley is showing the world her strength in foreign affairs.

Every other candidate feels unelectable. Mike Pence is bringing aggression and spirit, although it is wasted effort as he can never win. The rest of the field is simply inconsequential.

If the GOP is going to have a chance in 2024, it has to become more normal again. At the end of the day, only one person can beat Mr. Trump. The longer everyone else stays in the race, the harder they make it for that one opponent. If you have any doubts, get out now.
