He might do.
Which will speak to the failure of the Democrats to pick a suitable candidate. Because in many respects it’s an open goal.
Has there been any feedback on US public opinion on his $750 tax bill or the quarter of a million dead from COVID? Or the gerrymandering against black voters? Given the goldfish like nature of electorates it seems like the ‘losers’ farrago has been lost to memory.
The electorate didn't, though. He's in power because he won the US's equivalent of a politburo.
Your points would be true IF and only IF Trump were a normal President.
Trump is not a politician, not a Conservative, certainly not a Republican.
He is actually a thoroughly corrupt AUTOCRAT, and not even a competent one. A wannabe emperor. He makes no bones about it.
With Trump, l'etat c'est moi.
He IS the State, and that means all his personality flaws are stamped all through his administration like a watermark.
He is corrupt, so that means his administration is corrupt.
He breaks the law, so does his administration.
He is a racist bully, so his administration feels free to do the same.
He is a chaotic coward, and so is his administration.
In this case it is a deadly serious issue. The Court has had 9 Justices since 1869. Packing it will destroy it’s legitimacy, and set some other actions in motion which would be Biden’s Fort Sumter moment. His progressive base is playing with fire.A politician's word is no longer his (her/their/other pronoun as is the flavour of the month) bond.
Was it ever?
Ref the Bold
You see that is the usual race baiting media bollox
Oh dont get me wrong the bulk of people his campaign seeks to deter are black - but thats not the reason
Theyve 54% are ethnic monorities which of course means 46% are white.
The aim of the game is to deter those who wont vote for you whatever from going to the polls -
In trumps case they will be disproportionatly ethnic - iIn the democrats case they will be mostly white rednecks - which means the same people condeming the practice by trump will excuse it for Biden.
Meanwhile this attempt by the left to force everything through a racial prism - is pushing the undecided into Trumps camp.
Were going to get 4 more years of Trump and the only reason I cannot right regrettebly is because Im not convinced Bidens credible and again as with Hilary the campaiign isnt heres what we can do for you its Trumps a dick.
That doesnt inspire me to vote Democrat to the contrary it suggesst - theyve no credible alternatives and so will enact similar policies in which case I vote for the ignorant tossers or i go with the people who call me a privelaged racist by default if i agree with them and a thick racist if i dont.
* Unrelated no excuses or angling for sympathy - If my points a little rambling my apologies Just Recieved some bad news and imbibed alcohol accordingly - so i may be repetative wibbling.
The character of the man in question is normally an important factor in whether the policies will ever see the light of day once the voting is over.
In Trump's case, the character flaws have been on public display for far longer than he's been involved in politics, so the nature of his character inevitably looms far larger over his suitability for wielding power.
I wouldn't know, neither the US or UK have ever been one.Ain't this democracy thing a bitch?
I wouldn't know, neither the US or UK have ever been one.
In the UK's defence, the popular vote has a far bigger influence on who can form a government than the (historically-unpopular amongst Americans) Electoral Apparatchik system.
Genuinely, in what other system apart from the Soviet Union and its imitators, do political parties get to decide who gets to vote for the supreme leader?
So are the Beijing government, the CCP Standing Committee and the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. I guess that makes the PRC a democracy?Three branches of government that are independent from each other with their own checks and balances.
In those countries, the political parties can expect to have their leader appointed to run the government by the Head of State, based on a popular voting system where the parties don't control suffrage (albeit ability or willingness to vote is more about power and influence).No idea. I would expect Canada, Australia, India, NZ, Pakistan etc, but don't really know. I've only ever been able to vote in the UK and US, so don't really follow their political systems, but wouldn't be surprised if they are similar systems, based on their historical connections with UK.
In those countries, the political parties can expect to have their leader appointed to run the government by the Head of State, based on a popular voting system where the parties don't control suffrage (albeit ability or willingness to vote is more about power and influence).
In the US, the political parties get to say which people are allowed to cast the only votes which directly appoint the Head of State. That's unique amongst 'democracies' to the best of my knowledge, but not entirely unlike a swathe of undemocratic countries.
Its not, actually.No and you still don't get it......... The polls had Biden on a 10% lead, which is now dropping to an average of 6-7% points. In actuality the gap has narrowed to 1-2% points and that is possibly enough for Trump to have a chance of winning the electoral college.
I was predicting another 2-3% points and a Trump lead come polling day (you do understand that the last poll is the one that counts).
Don't worry Trump is gonna drain the swamp.But in all honesty GB every tax paying American should be p!ssed off that these loopholes created by the very people elected to look after you exist and seem to get worse after every 'Tax Reform' bill.
To defend their actions and give them a free pass only encourages "I am smarter than you" arrogance which really means "You poorer people deserve to pay tax - suckers."
You don't seem to realise Trump is packing SCOTUSIn this case it is a deadly serious issue. The Court has had 9 Justices since 1869. Packing it will destroy it’s legitimacy, and set some other actions in motion which would be Biden’s Fort Sumter moment. His progressive base is playing with fire.
The bottom line: is the narrower the result the more likely Trump will win the electoral college and that is accepted by most semi-intelligent people, meaning Biden really does need a 6% lead in the polls to win..... I had tried to show to some blinkered individuals, that Trump was polling 45% back in March and any poll that has him, on less than number, will always appear dubious, as 46.1% of the US voting population couldn't vote Hillary and she was a more credible candidate than sleepy Joe.I think it’s remarkable how little the Democrats seem to have done to try and appeal to anyone outside their core audience, particularly in non-Democrat districts and swing states.
Their entire operation seems to have focused on trusting that everyone will hate Trump enough to run to the polls and vote him out ASAP
It’s possible that they have a ******* excellent ground game to GOTV and have engaged fantastically well with influential local Donors to deliver this - this would fit with the type of small Select audiences we see at Sleepy Joe’s few trips out of the bunker
But Trump is clearly working the ground and actively visiting multiple states and cities to deliver to mass audiences - which even Clinton was doing last time, and seems to be entirely missing from Joe’s campaign.
Democrats still fail to have Offered a compelling positive picture of why people should vote for them, even worse than last time, other than ‘Trump will be a disaster’... and while Trump May be offensive, oafish and a boor, I simply don’t think they can paint that picture with people who live anywhere outside the cities.
It’s the economy, stupid.
