Can I use any other with a singular noun in the following context?
- Hey John, Trump has been awesome as the president of The Usa. I think he is absolutely going to win the next election for president. Is there any other candidate suitable for being president?
I know people would say I should say 'Are there any other people...?'. But when I use plural nouns I am expecting a yes answer. The answerer can say there are many. But I am here expecting a 'no answer. I am not in a position to hear a 'yes answer'. If the answerer said 'yes', I would be very surprised.
