    While I don't have a time machine that can travel to different dimensions to see all of the outcomes in November, I have a feeling that they know that if this virus changes society drastically for months and months, that the chance of Tump getting re-elected is a lot smaller.

    Wow
    And this is from a real conservative and big GOP player
    But previous administration and had his ow magazine

    Is the Republican Party a Lost Cause? - The Bulwark

    Unfortunately, while I enjoyed some conservative values and policy...there has been a vicious circle that had led to this point.

    It’s not going away...
    There’s many that need to see things get REALLY bad
    Then some soul searching as they realize and keep to themselves...how much damage they helped cause or allowed or cheered on.

    There’s a disease out there
    It’s not liberal vs conservative
    It’s morals depreciation

    Not sexual, family values, financial or statecraft, etc
    But how we treat people
    And truly consider consequences

    It’s going to get weirder and worse
    And the pandemic is just gassing it on.

    The GOP is in a whirlpool
    Question is, is it caused by a storm...or a black hole.

    Tsunami warning for Republicans

    Would you really blame the citizens???
    The GOP has done pittance to help them in crisis
    All efforts have been for corporate
    Especially those who are connected

    And there’s money and momentum on the other side

    Besides instability is bad for business
    And so is lack of customers
    The longer it lingers...they look for those that will normalize things.
    Long term solution vs short term profits are gaining traction in mosts’ mindsets

    The media has learned nothing from 2016. If people expect it to happen, then it doesn't really matter when it does. It's not "news". But when the GOP wins jut as many house seats and state legislature seats because of gerrymandering and who votes, it will be talked about 24/7.

    They trust polls way too much too. There are lots and lots of people out there who would rather do worse personally under a far right administration which punishes the social justice warriors, environmentalists, and health professionals that use the government to tell people how they should live. I hope that there is a real "silent majority" that will show up to vote, but when it comes to signs on people's houses, my current count is about 100 to 2.
