Default Trump versus Biden

Well, in a little over four months, I could certainly be proven wrong. But we will see.

I have consistently criticized President Trump for electing to just fire up his base, and not attempt to expand it.

The polls--all that I have seen, anyway (including one from Fox News)--now show him considerably behind Joe Biden.

Of course, the popular vote throughout the nation is really inconsequential--as Donald Trump showed in 2016.

But the popular vote in certain swing states is very consequential.

And President Trump appears to be trailing--by a great deal--in these important swing states.

Will President Trump's fired-up base come out to vote, in enormous numbers, whereas those supporting Joe Biden will not do so, as their support is only lukewarm?

I am guessing that the Trump haters--and they are ubiquitous; just as his supporters are--will, indeed, show up in large numbers.

But my guess plus a dollar will get you a newspaper.

Anyway, we will soon see...

Devil luck has been with him so far, but I wouldn't guess.

My thoughts are that Biden is at his speaking best when he's not saying anything. He's been hiding in his basement for a couple months. That will change when the campaign gets underway.

What evidence do you have that President Trump would have "refuse[d] to debate" if Bernie Sanders had been the nominee?

Or is that just unsupported speculation?

I don't think I would want to see even the surgical procedure to procure that "gem".

It's a shame Americans don't have better choices to vote for this election cycle in November.....


No new electable talent for either party....


A younger common ground candidate is what we need these days, not the two old guys we are stuck with now....

I initially thought Trump would win in a landslide earlier this year but, his ick factor continues to rise and this election might be closer than I imagined...

We will see after some kind of debate format and if there is enough of ground swell for political change...
