Of course. There is a strong chance we get stuck with him for another four no matter which of of remaining contenders goes. The only change we can hope to expect is the swinging back of the "blue wall" States that went (very narrowly) for the Trumpster last time. And maybe Fla.
There is no way to get the Trump voters back in those States. They have been digging in their heels for as long as we have been pointin out what a POS he is. We can, however, get our own turnout up a little bit while keeping the non-Trump voters (as differentiated from the Clinton voters) out of it- and even bringing a few of them to our side.
