Republicans have consistently, and foolishly, capitulated to Trump's desires since 2016. Because of this, the failure of his influence led to far fewer Congressional seats than expected last November. Though the party is trying to turn this into an opportunity to exercise its own autonomy and Trump may be more vulnerable than ever before, it's hard to believe that he will now suddenly abide by his fractured party's demands.
In order to finally break loose from the Democrats' woke stranglehold on the American people and bring the country back to a place of sanity, it is essential that the GOP remains united, no matter who wins the nomination. Whether it's Trump, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, or any other potential candidate, the party is strongest when it gets behind a single leader.
This move by McDaniel once again highlights the chairwoman's total obliviousness. Such a decision is a lame attempt to pave over the party's stark distinctions and, in reality, GOP members will support whoever serves their interests best. The most important factor will be how quickly voters break either for Trump or a rival and how quickly this will take, regardless of McDaniel's attempts to coerce candidates into what she wants.
There is a 45% chance that Trump will be the Republican nominee for the 2024 US Presidential Election, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
