What do y'all think the republican party will become under Trump? The same party as was under Bush which was a shift from compassionate conservative to plain conservatives, or a completely different model altogether; trumpism?

Trump and the GOP are really not at all on the same page. The polarisation of partisanship is leaving the compassionate conservatives behind and even the 'plain old' conservatives are struggling to find Trump a likeable character. This is not to say that the Republicans are likely to rebel as they recognise how much support a populist such as Trump is able to conjure for the Republicans. The mid-terms will really be a turning point for Trump as either way, he is going to really have to start applying some pressure in Congress to follow through with his electoral promises - that wall ain't going to build itself and I can't really imagine Republicans in the House and Senate being awfully pleased with committing money to it.

yeah he's practically creating his own internal coalition by the looks of it. it's usual for the party to control the executive to lose control of congress during mid terms and congress can block or ammend his legislation heavily, especially the wall one so he's not in a great position

It's just whether or not he'll go crazy with his executive powers following the mid-terms and start firing off executive orders - it's Trump, who knows?
