List Rules Vote up the events you think are most likely if Donald Trump loses the presidential election.

So what happens if and when Donald Trump loses the election? There are plenty of working theories as to what could happen in November, some of them see the GOP splintering into multiple parties and making the midterms even more contentious, while others offer a vision of a dystopian wasteland filled with nothing but “Make America Great Again” hats. Keep reading to take a look at the possibilities of what could happen if Trump loses the election. 

Thanks to the seeds being sewn at convention stops and stump speeches, Trump contesting election results is almost inevitable at this point. While a Donald Trump rebellion seems to be a worst case scenario, the realities of the situation are equally as frightening in their political ramifications. Even though we probably won’t have Trump in the White House, we’ll still probably have to deal with seeing him on television every night, and when he’s less encumbered by the rigors of national politics, he’ll be even more vocal.

So let’s think about those horrible scenarios and figure out what’s going to happen when Trump bails on the campaign.
