I posted this in this forum rather than the mud-pit as I think it's an interesting topic, one worthy of not being a complete mud-fest.

This article claims Bannon may run for president in 2020. I personally am dubious that he would have the appeal. Love or hate Trump, he certainly can use the media to his advantage. I think Bannon does not have the charisma to attract votes and is far better as a behind the scenes manipulator, but then again I was surprised Trump became president as well.

thehill.com...


Autoplay: On | Off Let us consider the unthinkable for liberal Democrats, principled conservatives and establishment Republicans: Is Stephen K. Bannon pursuing a hostile takeover of the Republican Party for the purpose of running for president to succeed President Trump?

Regarding the first part of the question, Bannon is undoubtedly trying to orchestrate a hostile takeover of the GOP, as Trump succeeded in orchestrating a hostile takeover of the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, through surges of voters in primaries supporting candidates who are neither classically conservative nor traditionally Republican. A Bannon presidential candidacy could occur in 2020 if Trump leaves office before his term is concluded or if Trump decides for some reason to not run for a second term.

A Bannon candidacy could occur in 2024 if Trump runs for a second term and is defeated, or if Trump is reelected and annoints Bannon as his successor.


So, would Bannon be a worthy candidate?
Could he be president?

Would you vote for Steve Bannon?

If his opponent was Hillary Clinton, yes.

Worthy candidate?..... NO.

Could he be POTUS?.... I hope not.... but then everyone thought Hillary would trounce Trump.

Would I vote for him?.. Only if the candidates that were running against him were worse.

If Bannon is their guy then they'll get someone even worse than Hillary to run against him. It worked so well for them this past election, why not use the same tactic next election? Just make the guy you want look good in comparison to a much worse candidate.

First thing that popped into my head when I read the headline. Get out of my brain, Ketsuko. It's already crowded in here and the voices won't let you get a word in edgewise anyway.

Who is this "they"? Do you honestly think the Democrats thought they were losing by running Hillary?

No.

They are just that corrupt like every other party. Hillary and Bill have that much power and clout and it was "her turn," so they didn't have a choice. If anything, the mysterious "they" were more likely to have been all too aware of her shortcomings and the way no one liked her, so they manipulated it to get Trump as her opponent because "they" figured she could at least beat him.

They underestimated how much people loathe Hillary.

Either way we had two crappy candidates and now the winners seem to need to justify their choice in the face of overwhelming evidence that it's not working.

Good thing the media has helped to build a persecution complex around him though, now his supporters are sure to ignore all the red flags. If he wins, it's all him but if he loses it's the fault of those who are against him.

Win win for Trump, his supporters shift blame for him and he gets credit for anything good. Lots of blame being thrown around though, all of it directed away from Trump. Must mean he's failing a lot and people are just shifting the blame for him because he's such a "victim".

It depends who he's running against. Not my first choice, but I said the same about Trump. Definitely can not rule it out.

His slogan could be "Make America White Again".

No. Even the thought of it will give me nightmares. What a despicable human being. Downright sleazy and creepy.
Why would you even suggest such a thing?

*shudders at the thought*

Silly question, it will never happen. The man has too many skeletons in his closet. He's only gained power by remaining in the background, operating on whispers and FUD. When you run for office, everything comes out.

I have to agree that Bannon is a "behind the scenes" kind of guy.

I remember watching something, I believe during the debates, Trump had Bills sexual accusers at a table. Now I've seen this clip plenty of times, but one YT clip had a total different angle, it showed the table and panned right to Bannon, you could just see the air around him as he surveyed the scene before him, a rare glimpse of a man in his world.

That said, he is better left pulling certain strings.

I would be as likely to vote for Steve Bannon as I would be stick a hot poker through my ear.

So not very likely...

Bannon could throw his hat into the ring to takeaway and opposition to Trump and then either drop out or make the decision that Trump will go allowing Bannon a clear shot to the finish line . The DNC being in a very bad place now and this mess not having enough time to get dealt with is leaving the only challenge to Trump coming from the right . Bernie going as a independent might make some waves for the left but that wont go very far . It funny because I for some reason had the thought of Bannon running the other day and I think I made mention of it in a comment ...not sure if it was here but I think I did somewhere ... I am Canadian so no on voting for me ..just my 2 cents

This is the slippery slope when you put someone like Trump in office. Then somehow, Bannon is a possibility,
and the candidates get lower and lower on the rung, until we wind up somebody like

I think he's retarded so no. My contingency every year is Rand, he's the only politician that makes common sense bills for the people.

I can think of no circumstance, in which someone worse than Bannon could be found to run against him.

The man is a walking tumour full of hatred and intolerance. All that moron is good for is target practice.

I'm thinking about going and changing my voter registration to republican, just so I can have a say in their primaries...
no, I would not vote for banning, or anyone he might happen to prop up in our congressional races.. and I think I will be doing the republicans a favor by giving support to a candidate that would actually have a chance defeating the democrat they are running against!
