    would attract a bunch of women voters.

    But haley had a questionable commitment to conservative values. Not sure she can be counted on.

    although, she DOES do photo ops pretty well:

    Trump also has questions about his commitment to "conservative values."

    It may be a very good political move for him. But only if done correctly. First off, Pence would have to be "on board." Secondly, he would need to announce it well before the dems announce a VP candidate. Heck, half the field is already promising to choose a woman as VP. you know, once the best MAN wins the nomination.

    I would bet that Haley isn’t interested. She’d be a great candidate for the top job in 2024 on her own. I don’t mind Pence but he’s not electable for President.

    Pence is essential for the Evangelical voters. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Terrible idea. Pence brings the vast amount of Christians along for the ride. Haley brings, who exactly?

    This could only work if Pence would announce that he is stepping down for his own reasons and actively campaigned for Trump.

    Even then it's risky.

    I think Pence is class guy, adds to ticket (Midwest, Christian), and I could see him as pres if god forbid Trump can’t carry on. I like Haley, but not as VP.

    Keep Pence. In addition with keeping a known, winning quantity and bringing the evangelical vote along (which is huge), his Christian values absolutely make libtard heads explode and what really prevents any real attempt to impeach Trump. Believe me, the left FEARS Pence replacing Orange Man.

    Trump, while on his third marriage, was rolling up support from evangelic pastors long before he announced a running mate.



    Maybe because Melania is just so hot he should be forgiven.

    Anything that upsets the apple cart at this point would somehow get the left screaming "Russia" or Pence stepped down cause he felt the heat of the investigation and wanted out.

    I absolutely love the fact that the left fears Pence almost as much as they loathe President Trump.

    Based on everything I know about him, Pence is an honorable man, and that makes him more rare than unicorn in today's politics. If all opposition research could dig up was that Pence is hostile against abortion and LGBTQ rights, you know he doesn't have skeletons in his closet.

    First, any Republican would be a fool to take any advice that came by way of CNN.

    Has this ever been done before? Changing VPs after 4 years?

    I think that a lot of swing voters see Pence as some of the adult supervision that Trump needs. Also, I love how Haley has bigger balls than any of the people in the U.N. she used to go toe to toe with, but I don't think changing VPs mid stream is a good career move.
