I wonder why Trump doesn't run as an independent. He has a lot of the Republican Party behind him but a lot aren't. He has a reliable following and doesn't need the infrastructure of the party He could split a vote and become a spoiler.

If you were to ask me 8 years ago if I thought he could win the Republican nomination I would have laughed. But he continues to astound at how much he can get away with and still amass a dedicated fandom. I fear that he will win another primary and winning the general election is definitely not out of reach. The idea of it makes me really worry about the state of the nation.
