At about the 6 month point until Inauguration Day.
I have recently changed my State of primary residence to North Carolina from Pennsylvania and so consequently that is my State for voting now.
For me this is simple. I voted for Rand Paul in the 2016 primary. I voted for Hillary Clinton in the general election. This year, I did not vote in the Pennsylvania primary nor in the North Carolina, having changed my residency prior to the Pennsylvania primary but subsequent to the North Carolina primary.
And this year I will vote for Joe Biden. Extremely simple choice to make and a choice made easier pretty much since it became clear that Biden would be the nominee.
Trump has done nothing since he has assumed office to demonstrate fitness to hold this office. And what little semblance of fitness there appeared to be has disintegrated in the last four months.
Trump is a pathological narcissist and pathological sociopath. Two traits that when combined are particularly dangerous.
Then there is the recent interview, commented at length in the other thread on this board. I will take only one statement, for sake of brevity with this OP. The whole statement in regards to him not accepting the results of the 2020 election. That statement, alone, without regard to anything else Trump has said or done, is disqualifying. Any statement other than “I will unconditionally accept the results of the election.” is patently disqualifying.
And going forward, I strongly suggest the far right lose this “anti-intellectual” bias in your candidates. Your going to have to win voters in the suburbs from now on to have any hope of winning elections. Anti-intellectualism (of which Trump is the poster boy) is going to turn them off and turn them to Democrats.
Also, standing on social conservatism is not going to help you with suburbanites, who are little concerned with social conservatism and far more concerned with economic issues.
Prior to 2016, I had voted Democrat only once for President, that being for Bill Clinton in 1996, mostly out of concern for Dole’s fitness for office. I am not thrilled with the idea of President Biden, but I am less thrilled with the prospect of a continuation of the misadventures of President Retard J. Moron.
Giant ■■■■■■ bag versus turd sandwich election to be sure, but only one of the bad options is remotely acceptable.
In any event, way back in 2015, I told you so.
In many ways, Trump is karma for Nixon’s southern strategy. You appeal to the lowest common denominator long enough and eventually you BECOME the lowest common denominator.
Find your 2024 nominee in the suburbs.
I would very much appreciate not having to vote Democrat in 2024.
