There is the mindset that we should 'go back to the old church', to break any tradition that we have set in the church, and way back when we had non cardinals picked as popes, even a deacon. With a large number (majority) of cardinals being older, and liberal, I could see them choosing a younger priest even to b pope, someone that is very liberal, and also could potentially be controlled by the cardinals and pope francis if he was to step down.

With that in mind, Fr. Martin could potentially be picked.

In theory, they could elect any Catholic male who is at least the age of reason.  More plausibly, it might be a remote possibility but I suppose they could elect a non-cardinal, probably a bishop or maybe a priest.  I don't really anticipate it but surprises do happen.  I'm not sure if it'd be Fr. Martin, though.  It is my understanding that an American pope is very unlikely, for apparently political reasons.

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables."
- 2 Timothy 4:3-4

"Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity."
- 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
