If Americans expel President Donald Trump from the White House, the specter of socialism will hover over the nation, says Robert Merry, editor of The American Conservative.

"The most likely result will be a pronounced lurch to the left. Get ready for an American version of socialism … the rise of leftist politics of an intensity that we haven't seen for a long time in America," Merry writes in an opinion piece published Monday.

"The fate of America is wrapped up in the fate of the Trump administration to an extent rare in history. If he succeeds, he will be positioned to lead the nation into a new era driven by a new dialectic of politics that serves as the bedrock of a new governing coalition. Tall order.

"If he fails, the Democrats will ride to power under a likely banner of liberal populism and European-style socialism. Can they govern successfully under that banner? Probably not. But that doesn't mean they can't take power under it."

Merry is the author of "President McKinley: Architect of the American Century," to be published in September by Simon & Schuster.
