Is there still time for the GOP to find a presidential nominee to replace Trump?

Even the fox news poll shows Biden leading Trump by 12%, and that was before Trump posted the "white power" clip from his parade, and the scandal about him not doing anything about Russia putting a bounty on American troops. It seems to me that the GOP would be much better off finding someone who isn't as hated as Trump to run for president.

    The RNC could replace him at their convention if they so choose. Some are suspecting that's what the DNC might do with Biden.

    Democrats would love that but we are very blessed to have Trump as our chosen candidate. Finally, a candidate that loves God and babies too.

    There is "time" in the sense that the party does not officially pick its nominee until the convention in August.  Even then, there is a limited period of time in which -- if Trump stepped down after the convention -- the Republican National Committee could pick a replacement who would be on the ballot in all states.  However, at some point, the party would run into state laws governing when ballots are printed.  Most states do not allow a replacement candidate to be named after that date.

    On the other hand, the current Republican rules very strictly bind the delegates based on the results in their state.  In theory, the delegates to the convention could opt to change those rules, but it is highly unlikely.  So, barring Trump stepping down, or a mass revolt by the convention delegates, it is too late for anybody else.

    Clinton was leading Trump by 12% in some polls in 2016.  Good thing Trump didn't listen to you.

    It seems to you that you don't like Trump and do not want him re-elected.
