    Yes, but ya have to remember
    The T supporters are very aggressive and verbose.

    Most people just don’t feel the need to express themselves aloud or protest or post signs.

    This will likely be another blue wave as in 2018
    T has the distinct disadvantage of being president during a plague and deep recession
    Neither of which are going away soon

    I just went to a political seminar last night, which showed every prez in the past 100 years who’s tried to be re-elected during or near a recession, has lost.

    Unfortunately for him, because he screwed the pooch so much, the typical spike for the prez that happens during crisis...has actually transferred to Biden instead. (Since T is shown instability and Biden is known, Ex-VP and seen as stable)

    The seminar says that normally each side starts with about 44%, no matter the politics. Leaving them to fight for the remainder of 12%.
    Very fascinating.

    Despite people’s anger to T
    He’s having the bad luck of presiding over a recession
    And made things worse by his instability and incompetence.

    If he’d had acted quickly and sanely
    He’d probably be up now.

    Trump has done one thing very well, which isn't surprising given the amount of practice he's had:

    Throw money--other people's money--at problems.


    Kicking Covid-19 responsibilities back to the states is a wise political move. It would take a coordinated effort by the governors to effectively challenge Trump's claims of what a great job he's doing (a lie repeated often enough becomes the truth), and I don't see the Republican governors participating.

    I wasn't expecting a recession before November at the start of this year for sure. And I am shocked that he has handled this pandemic so bad. He could be up in the swing states by double digits if he acted like a leader for once. The governors in the states are getting praise from a lot of people on the other side of the political spectrum for the handling of this virus.

    Yes he might have had to tell his followers to wear a mask and stay at home. He probably would have made red ones with MAGA written on it. If he forced some more drastic steps like wanting all grocery stores to close and switch to pickup only, especially in the hardest hit areas. Working on getting P100 full face masks for medical staff, and better procedures. Saying that businesses can open if they find a way to make sure no one gets infected, even if everyone else has the virus... And deal with the industries and economy with guidance from experts. Make some prepared speeches about getting the country through this together. That travel between areas has to be limited to trucks for a few weeks.
