What if Donald Trump is the new John C. Fremont?
#1
You will recall that Fremont was the first Republican Presidential candidate, in 1856; he lost more or less respectably to James Buchanan, as Trump will now almost certainly lose more or less respectably to Hillary Clinton.

But what if, in 2020, a basically similar candidate - stressing slamming the door on immigration and free trade; i.e., an advocate of Malthusian rather than Darwinian economics - wins the GOP primary again, and this time around, also the general election because that candidate will not have the personal baggage that Trump has?

In that case, 2020 could be the same four-way screaming match as 1860 - with the laissez-faire Republicans bolting the party and running a Ted Cruz or a Marco Rubio as an independent, and there also being a schism among the Democrats, with the socialists no longer willing to play second fiddle to the neo-liberal globalists, as they are doing in this election.

Then "Trump 2.0" wins.
