    Maybe.

    But I believe for the most part voter enthusiasm is going to be sky high.

    Democrats will be eager to vote for Biden.
    Trumpers will be eager to vote for Trump
    Never Trumpers will mostly be eager to vote against Trump (hopefully for Biden)
    African Americans will be back up to 2008 and 2012 levels.
    It'll be interesting what happens to the Hispanic vote. I suspect it's going to be sky high as I can't imagine kids in cages is popular.
    I hope that leftists understand that having a seat at the table is better than being excluded completely from the room. You'll get a lot more done with Biden than you ever will with Trump. Another 4 years of Trump could mean the end of your chance to ever get anything done. I don't think it's a stretch to consider Trump an existential threat to our democracy. I wouldn't be surprised if he were to be re-elected to see political opponents outlawed or jailed. Look at what he's doing already to officers Vindman and to the IGs. If he wins in 2024, will he outlaw the NY Times? Will he ask his cult to "liberate" Vermont of Bernie Sanders? Or lock up the leftists?
    "It Can Happen Here." There might not be any leftists left to campaign in 2024 if Trump gets re-elected.

    Just look at all the **** he has pulled in just the past 6 months.

    Whoever's idea it was to film that and actually decide to publish doesn't understand good PR. Just red meat for the base.

    It was like a wannabe comedy act, like he thought he was part of a roast. I'm sure most of the stuff he said went over the heads of the high school grads. It was bad. Realllll bad.

    Maybe. He is up for reelection this year. But then again, he's in Nebraska. How difficult is it for an incumbent Republican Senator to win reelection in Nebraska?

    It's a lay up with the added pleasure that if you miss, you can easily pick up your rebound and put it back in two more times. Sasse would have to have a Roy Moore plunge to lose the seat, but aside from being a bad comedian, he'll easily win.

    Romney would have trounced HRC.

    Trump ran against one of the most polarizing and unpopular figures the dems could put up.

    Hardcore Trump supporters very very sadly make up about 1/3 of U.S. voters. But they only make up 1/3 of U.S. voters. So they can be just as ****ing stupid as they want to be, imho.

    What defines a hardcore Trump supporter?

    You’re kidding yourself if you think black voters turn out like they did in 2008 and 2012.

    A solid portion of Hispanics voted for Trump and they probably will again.

    You could be right. But I don’t think so.

    Remind me again what happened in South Carolina and what powered the Biden campaign to a primary victory. See also 2018 midterms.

    The people who are going to vote for him essentially no matter what. Or, as Trump defines them, people who will support him even if he walks out onto 5th avenue and shoots a person.

    Okay. That's a little different than I thought. When you said 1/3 of the country are hardcore Trump supporters, I was curious how you were defining it because that's too high. But if "vote for him no matter what," then 1/3 would certainly be accurate. However, 1/3 would also vote for Biden no matter what, but I don't know that I'd consider them hardcore Biden supporters.

    I don't think people would vote for Biden if he murdered someone in times square

    I'm pretty sure Biden has had a very hands-on approach throughout his political career.

    Well, if we’re taking that hyperbole literally, would you agree that 1/3 of the country would vote for Trump if he murdered someone in Times Square?

    I'd say at least 1/3 of the voters will vote for NOT-Trump no matter what.
