    I'm happy when I find find people with nuanced positions, on anything. It's the ones who reject any possibility of nuance that I mistrust...
    Mind you, I don't claim I have no bias.... I just TRY to look at the facts before jumping to conclusions, even though it will invoke cries of "CP is supporting....."

    I think he'll be re-elected. The US Democrats haven't launched a strong enough push. I'd be surprised if Trump manages to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    To be fair, the last 4 months have been dominated by pandemic; I don't think any party could launch a strong campaign under the same conditions.

    I'm not saying Trump wont be re-elected. I just think that this particular electoral history is unlike everything any living US voter has ever encountered; we should be careful of holding it to "normal" standards.

    You don't need to do much to launch a strong campaign. Just stop saying stupid crap on twitter. Even if you have to fake like being a politician, Trump can't do that for just a few days? No, because Trump just isn't that intelligent. The left is definitely right in that regard. He's not playing 4-d chess because he's an imbecile. I could think of at least three or four ways I could use this crisis to my advantage, one of them being Biden's "you ain't black" comment. What does Trump do? He tweets about "skanks" and Scarborugh conspiracies. Come on, man.

    Yeah, for the past four years the Democrats have pretty much done everything but what they ACTUALLY need to do to defeat Trump so, barring a miracle or outright cheating and getting away with it, I foresee him getting a second term.

    Pray that they drop Biden? Your best chance is if they replace Biden. Otherwise, I believe that's Trump's only chance.

    Given that every month this year has seemingly had an entire history textbook's worth of events happen, who knows what the landscape will look like in... wow... only five months?

    Biden wasn't my first choice, Warren or Sanders in that order was, but Biden won and as the never Trumpers would say, anyone but the incompetent, wannabe dictator, Trump.
