ELECTION 2020

Post by Omar Bongo » Sat Apr 25, 2020 5:31 pm

Since the candidates have been decided I thought maybe we'd be needing a thread solely about this...

How's this for an opening shot...

Nervous Republicans See Trump Sinking, and Taking Senate With Him

President Trump’s erratic handling of the coronavirus outbreak, the worsening economy and a cascade of ominous public and private polling have Republicans increasingly nervous that they are at risk of losing the presidency and the Senate if Mr. Trump does not put the nation on a radically improved course.

Republicans were taken aback this past week by the results of a 17-state survey commissioned by the Republican National Committee. It found the president struggling in the Electoral College battlegrounds and likely to lose without signs of an economic rebound this fall, according to a party strategist outside the R.N.C. who is familiar with the poll’s results.

...New surveys show him trailing significantly in battleground states like Michigan and Pennsylvania, and he is even narrowly behind in must-win Florida.

...Surveys also showed Republican senators in Arizona, Colorado, North Carolina and Maine trailing or locked in a dead heat with potential Democratic rivals — in part because their fate is linked to Mr. Trump’s job performance.

...Democrats raised substantially more money than Republicans did in the first quarter in the most pivotal congressional races, according to recent campaign finance reports.

...Perhaps most significantly, Mr. Trump’s single best advantage as an incumbent — his access to the bully pulpit — has effectively become a platform for self-sabotage.

Yeah, it's still early and anything could happen, Hillary was ahead at this same time 4 years ago. But the playing field since then has completely shifted...

Republican Representative Tom Cole of Oklahoma: "You got to have some hope to sell people," Mr. Cole said. "But Trump usually sells anger, division and 'we're the victim.'"

So one-note Willie has a big problem- he can't sell himself as an alternative to the status quo this time around.

Normally, this would be a time for savvy politician to adapt to the changing realities and reinvent himself ala Bill Clinton before the '96 election, but that's not a tool in this snake-oil salesman's box. So what we're probably going to see from him is the dirtiest, most negative campaign ever in an attempt not to lift himself up but to tear his opponent down to his level. Barring a miracle turnaround in the Covid situation by November, that's all he's got.

For the country, the choice is stark- it's going to come down to either 4 more years of this constant, numbing, daily barrage of bombast and negativity,
or something...different

The next six months are going to be ugly and anything but uplifting, but if we as a country can weather the storm, come together and do the right thing, come next year we can possibly be looking forward to a much brighter and encouraging future...

Nothing will change until someone in their party grows half a ball.

I say "full speed ahead."
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Biden and the rest of the Dem leadership are rightly standing back and letting him make a mess and drop in the polls.

Texas is a statistical tie, Trump has plenty of reason to be yelling at his campaign manager. The last thing he needs is having to spend money defending Texas. Every penny spent advertising in Dallas is a penny he can't spend advertising in Phoenix or Milwaukee or Charlotte. More polling might show differently. But right now this is very encouraging that one of his bulwark states is not as blinded as so many of his followers here and elsewhere.

Sexual assault claim that took place in 1993...
Three Senate elections and two Presidential elections and she doesn't speak out until 2020. Unless, Biden comes clean or she has some more damaging evidence, Democrats will stick with him.

If the allegations were credible one has to believe the GOP would have made it a HUGE issue in 2008 and 2012. They were desperate to stop a black man from being president.

How would they have known? And this claim twelve years ago about a VP candidate would barely have made the news cycle. That has nothing to do with whether or not the claims are credible.

Every campaign does opposition research on their opponents. Believing this was out there and they did not find it is indicative of incompetence.

You might be right. Incompetence is the trademark of this administration.

By November these sex claims against Joe will be old news. It'll likely be something about his "sanity" and ability to lead. He really needs to choose his VP wisely because they will be carrying a lot of weight.

Meanwhile, Trump has something like 20 accusers, what about them?

Better than the capitalist meltdown screwing over tens of millions like we have now.

Only a complete fool thinks this economy is working.

I like the Brad Pascale compares the Trump campaign to the Death Star.

I hope no one reminds him of how that worked out for the Empire.

Monmouth Poll conducted April 30 to May 4:

Biden currently has the support of 50% of registered voters and Trump has the support of 41% with 5% undecided. This represents a slightly wider lead for the Democrat than in previous Monmouth polls – 48% to 44% in April and 48% to 45% in March.

Trump registers a negative 40% favorable to 53% unfavorable opinion. The incumbent had a 42% favorable to 50% unfavorable rating in April, a 46% to 49% rating in March, and a 44% to 53% rating in February.

Wow, I just received my $1,200.00 check today & it has President Donald J. Trump's name on it under where it says what it is for.
It appears he is low in the polls (according to Omar Bongo), I am going to donate my whole check to the Donald Trump campaign.
Who else is going to do this too?
