I say yes, I think both parties will look for any excuse just to get rid of him as President. If he doesn't have an establishment vice president, he will also face impeachment.

Based on current rhetoric, very probably - many things he says are borderline impeachable.  Trump also strikes me as an impatient person who may overstep his constitutional authority and open up a path to impeachment. 

But then again, who is to say that, once elected, he doesn't revert to governing more like a conventional politician?

If he gets impeached, the public will rally even more to his side. So you better hope not.

Not automatically, no. But given that this is Trump we are talking about, the odds that he at some point over a four-year period would do something that would be grounds for impeachment are probably a lot higher than they are for any normal president.

No. Even if they tried to, he'd probably have LePage or Palin as VP for impeachment insurance.

even the "establishment" aren't stupid enough to immediately impeach a disagreeable politician before they've done anything wrong.

Personally, I think he should only get one testicle removed (moderate hero)
Such a solution would certainly be completely unacceptable for me. However, for the sake of moderate herosim, I might very well be willing to keep my scrotum. Smiley Indeed, does that sound fair? Smiley

For which specific reason? You can't impeach a president just for fun or because you don't like his positions.

I say no, he won't face it.

How about, he issues an executive order banning all Muslims from entering the United States.

He has to violate the Constitution or commit a crime while President first before grounds for impeachment can even be thought of. He's not even been elected yet.

I'll be generous to the man and say that he won't commit a crime. So, no.

Trump has made a habit of raising a middle digit to reality, turning that middle digit into a knife, and stabbing reality through the heart.

No. Impeachment doesn't work that way.

The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it? - President Donald J. Trump

If he follows through on what he's saying on the campaign, then yes, because his rhetoric contains anti-constitutional elements.
