I think Tim Scott fills these categories better than both Trump and DeSantis, for the record.

I think only Scott fulfills all three categories out of everyone on this list. DeSantis is the only one that I could say maybe would also fit all 3 (generate high oppo turnout is the one I am unsure about)

This is tough because everyone is below DeSantis (even Trump in my opinion) on the first 2. And DeSantis is not gonna generate the backlash that Trump or Cruz would.

I went with Noem because she is the one that more of the Republican base is knowledgeable about and could support (mainly from her anti-lock down stand). Haley might be second, but her appeal amongst Republicans has significantly decreased recently. No one else is really exciting outside of maybe Cruz (I haven't heard any of the other people named by those who are amongst people actively involved in politics that I know). Not many of the others would generate opposition, but that doesn't really matter if your people don't come out to vote.

The American, "news," media (quotation marks used advisedly) is a big part of the problem of the whole political divide and disaster in the U.S., though.

Yes, but then again, it is so fun to watch the disaster unfold, even if I may lament both the causes and effects of the disaster.
