First of all - how does Vivek divert Trump votes?
Are you asserting that in the highly unlikely event that VR primaried Trump, that VR would be a POTUS candidate that could not get enough votes to win?
VR has not indicated that he would run as a third party candidate.
Therefore, it seems like his winding up as the candidate who loses is the Trojan Horse.
Unless you have a different thesis?
And can you explain the non trust? He registers as smarmy yes.
I'm not trying to make people agree that VR is the bestust candidate evar, just trying to understand the rejection factor. Nobody will explain their reasoning, it's just because.
(Personally I think VR IS the better executive candidate. More disciplined and nuts and bolts. But he is unlikely to win a general election because he is so unknown. Trump is the more high probability win and has a huge lead. Trump is also probably not as good an executive in practice, maybe. VR just seems to have more mental bandwidth than DJT.)
