Democrats banking on a demographic shift are fooling themselves. Being feckless doesn’t win votes. They haven’t and will not learn.
With Mcconnell at the helm Biden is basically a lame duck. What kind of cabinet or political appointees will McConnell agree to? Not to mention judges and such. Major democrat change positions are dead.
ACA is likely dead with no replacement. The fact the GOP has no replacement is actually a plus because you cannot pick apart the troubles with a non-existent plan like a current, in place plan. Once again the GOP is a step ahead.
Despite impeachment, mismanagement of the coronavirus and obvious corruption Trump still won. The takeaway here is tht Trumpism works and wins. There is no repudiation.
The democrats have totally blown it. They had all the advantages: a tanked economy, an absolutely massive fundraising operation, Covid pandemic in which the President himself contracted the very disease through his own negligence that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands as well, unrest over an overbearing police force egged on by the President and they ended up with basically a repeat of 2016. Biden winning is a pyrric victory at most.
My thoughts are many but I’m so tired. The media once again nearly had me fooled. I wasn’t expecting Trump to be this close and at 50/50 odds, he may win the whole thing. Seniors DIDN’T flee from him, etc etc.
Should Biden lose, there’s a few top reasons I feel factored in:
Kamala being terrible choice. Bidens age and work ethic by not getting out (it’s a job interview, he needed his best efforts).
The Senate… think about that… if Rs keep WH and grow majority right after the left made loud noise about the courts, this tells me Americans are giving thumbs up to judge choices and want it to keep going.
Trump likely picked up more votes than last time around and attracted demographics that democrats have coasted on. The strategy of Trump is alive and well and even more so his appeal to a broader spectrum of voters.
Millions of dollars have been spent buying campaigns mostly in losing efforts ie SC Senate seat won by Graham whose opponent was financed by “big outside donors”.
Just imagine if just 25% of this “outside money” had been spent on humanitarian efforts.
Oh, and Pennsylvania’s Attorney General should recuse himself from any legal actions arising in PA over challenges to the election results. Regardless of the outcome, Shapiro should be recalled from the PA AG office; he’s not fit to serve the best interests of people of the Commonwealth.
I don’t disagree with any of this at face value. That said, what do you think the Democrats could have done differently? I think the results so far are more indicative of the deep political divisions in America, something none of Trump’s incompetence and corruption would hurt him too terribly on.
Before yesterday I said I felt Trump had a better than 50% shot at re-election because of partisanship, and this morning bears that out.
