This is just a guess, of course, but somewhere around 48% of those who vote in November will be voting for Donald Trump. Without going into the laundry list of obvious examples or any of the standard talking points, there are certainly plenty of reasons not to. Yet he has a perfectly reasonable chance of winning.

Right now, polls show that about 43% of Americans approve of the job he's doing. This, after everything that has happened, and that number should be a very sobering indication of where this country is right now. Personally, I try to understand how these people can do this, but I still only understand some of it.

Anyway, here's the point: Elections are about contrasts. Choices. How can that many people support this disaster of a person? For many of them, they're looking at the alternative. And when those who provide their information and opinions for them point at things like PC and Identity Politics and Cancel Culture and an overall culture in decay, they can make reasonable points not to vote for the Democratic party. Even with, amazingly, this profoundly damaged person in the White House.

It's certainly too late to make any changes before November, but the Democratic party had a chance to take over the middle, and I don't see that happening. There is no excuse, zero, none, for the race to be this close. Regardless of who wins, the Democrats have too often allowed the wrong voices to represent them. It allows the Trumpsters to tie all the silliest crap coming from the hardcore Left to the milquetoast, feeble Biden.

This should be a learning experience, but I'm doubtful.

The Democrats need to retake control of their party, they need to tell the Neo-Marxists to GTFO because NO Western nation and ESPECIALLY America wants Marxism and wants to collapse Capitalism and replace it with Anarchy and a Communist System.

Democrats are ordering police to stand down while cities burn, and people are murdered (even 1 year olds).

You think half of America is going to vote for that?

This is going to be the biggest landslide wipe-out in history!

Yeah I don't get it either. Maybe America in the recesses of our collective soul is as fascistic and authoritarian as any banana republic. Democracy is no longer reliably producing rich, white plutocratic politicians so it must be time to destroy it.

You are right, it shouldn't be close. Trump should be leading by a lot. The fact that he isn't is a testament to the effectiveness of the liberal brainwashing of our young(er) generations. The hippies of yore are a lost cause...all sensible folks ignore them anyway.

....if anything saves Biden, it will be the kids---they don't know shit about living--real life and how much it costs
..and they get their information through social media and the MSM

Once again we are a representative republic.

Meanwhile, back in reality, the Democrats are beating Trump and his cult like a gong.

Why?

The Democrats offer concrete policies across the board, while the Trump cult offers only fear and hate.

The Democrats act like patriots and decent human beings, while the Trump cult acts like Nazi sociopaths. Q-anon, the current Republican philosophy, is literally a Nazi conspiracy theory repackaged.

We can't save the Republican party. The treason runs too deep there. They simply hate everyone outside of their fascist cult, because the hating gives them a thrill. Pity. The USA needs two parties. Hopefully, a sane conservative party will rise out of the wreckage of the GOP.

Democrats know that they can go as radical left as their little hearts content knowing that at some point they will get one past the goalie into office.

Then they change the country with no alternatives later on.

Disclaimer already, mac?

What happened to the "Russians are coming"

"Trump's a racist?

"Trump's a dictator"

How about the truth for once. Trump gave this country its self esteem back and you can't fucking stand it.

Are we? I would question that assessment when our representatives in government do not seem to be concerned with anyone except billionaires and those who try to represent The People are branded as evil socialists.

I think Mac sits around all day waiting for Trump to arrest him and take him to a death camp.

Pretty sure that Hitler does that sort of thingy.

Then there are the endless wars Trump started. Such a bad person that Trump.

Did I mention Trump started Covid and infected and personally murdered millions with it?

And the ugly reality the democrats need to face up to is this......the democrat party doesn't exist any longer.
