How will each of the declared Republican candidates deal with trump as their opponent?

Directly attack - say heís the wrong choice; 1/6 liability; the past; lost in 2020; cannot win in 2024; dangerous; anti-democratic

Softly attack - will strategically promote self as best option, even better than trump, but will try to avoid saying anything too negative; will always defer to ďwell heís a better option than Joe BidenĒ (I.e. deftly trying to be trumpís VP pick)

Say nothing - bootlicker option; will literally not say a bad word about him; will try to ignore the trump candidacy or even praise it; will adopt all of his positions; will go all in on tearing down trumpís perceived competition. (I.e. desperate attempt to be trumpís VP pick)

Also, can you think of anyone who might enter the race who will go all in on attacking trump?

To be fair, it's entirely likely some directly attack him, just not on the points you mentioned (which is viewed as leftist attacks). So they could attack him from the right.

Mike Pence. Heís already showed signs of going in that direction (ďHistory will hold him accountable for January 6thĒ; ďI learned a lot from being Trumpís VP - about subpoenas for exampleĒ). And he has no reason to hold back - he wonít be VP again if Trump wins the nom, and he isnít concerned about making MAGAers angry by attacking Trump because they already hate Pence right now

Since Pence was there with Trump from 2016-2020 and had many close interactions with him, Pence has the most ammo against Trump in form of anecdotal stories and insider info

FYI: Pence again shows signs that he will be the one to attack Trump straight-up"

As he nears an expected run for president, former Vice President Mike Pence has begun drawing a contrast with Donald Trump, saying changes to Social Security and Medicare should be on the table when it comes to reducing the nation's spending.

Speaking to the Des Moines Register's editorial board Wednesday morning, Pence said "my old running mate's policy is identical to Joe Biden's."

"I think that both Joe Biden and my former running mate have made it clear that they wonít even discuss Social Security or Medicare reform, and I just think thatís unacceptable," Pence said. "I think that policy is insolvency."

Honestly I could at this point see him taking significant support from DeSantis, among the "conservative but lukewarm on Trump" demographic common among like Mormons and some evangelicals. His problem though is that he's both too tied to Trump and too tied to opposing Trump.

I voted that Rob will attack Trump directly because that is his only hope of winning the nomination.

He's polling about double or triple what Ramsway is polling. Pence often polls a shade ahead of Haley for 3rd place even though he hasn't announced. He has a valid claim to make an attempt for the presidency in 2024. If he doesn't make headway, he can drop out. But he should make the try
