I know a few 2016 voters who "rolled the dice" on Trump whom are firmly on the other side of the fence this time around.
I think that will ultimately be his downfall. There were probably a substantial percentage of folks who went into the polls with a "fuck it, let's see what happens" ultimately voting for Trump. I doubt he gets many of those votes this go around since you know exactly what you're getting.
In other words -- the number of people who disliked Hillary > number of people who dislike Biden. Trump isn't getting those votes this time around.
There's always going to be the folks who vote right down party lines who won't be swayed either way. I think Trump will fail to capture many of the "grey" voters that go either way.
I am going to bet the side of your neat little story......many HC voters are turned off by Biden and Harris....along with Bernie bros being pissed about this ticket and they say fuck it.....vote for Trump because at least you know what you are getting.......low energy costs, high GDP, low unemployment, record jobs reports and booming economy.

Harris called Biden a racist and a sexual predator .......then accepts his choice for VP. The hypocrisy on the left is immeasurable.
'Member 4 years ago when Trump and/or his campaign people made personal attacks on Cruz (including an ad comparing attractiveness of wives) and then Cruz started hitting the phones for Trump after conceding and you were all like "THAT'S PUTTING YOUR FEELINGS BEHIND YOU FOR THE COUNTRY!!!!!!"
The hypocrisy of you makes immeasurable look very, very measurable.

I’m sure you want to have some argument about how great it’ll be if he wins but I’m going to pass. Fuck off.
I would hope you wouldnt imply that the shitshow would be from having trumps policies again. Record job growth, GDP, stock markets, unemployment and massive trade deals that benefit us and not the rest of the world...yea I think that is better then Biden being an influence peddler and lining his sons pockets would be the shitshow.

Deaths, people in the hospital, and cases are down yes. Good news and I hope it continues to go down.
However, we are still above 1000 deaths a day and over 160k in deaths.
I would have thought it would have been higher than half the number of deaths due to heart disease per day
1000 dead a day, 160k and climbing. Complete overreaction!

Great News All! The Serum Institute is shipping the unproven vaccine with unknown side effects so the .0003 (or .03%) can be protected!!!
You’re a strange dude

Science and experts, gasp, change their findings. I know, it’s crazy.
Masks work, jmog. Don’t be a dumbass.
1. The findings haven’t changed in 5 months. The science about a healthy person wearing a mask is still the same.
2. Masks do work, they keep a sick person from spreading germs. They don’t do anything for a healthy person.
3 Sorry that facts don’t care about your feelings.

Any vaccine that will make billions for someone like Gates or Soros will be pushed by the left and the media.

I woul guess more people are wearing masks now than in March-April. Yet there's a spike trending higher than at that time. I don't think masks are all that relevant to altering how COVID behaves. I think this thing is going to run its course regardless of our actions. Like everyone, I hope it's soon.
Zuh? Things were trending down, then a ton of people took "things can reopen" to mean that all is well. From personal viewing, mask wearing has gone down a lot locally. Going back up now, but it def went down over the past couple months.
How come masks work everywhere else but Americans be like .. “nah no proof”...?

Big win for the school choice movement at the High Court today. Great win for students and parents.
I don’t even know what this is, but based solely off you supporting it, and your post about it, I’m gonna disagree with whatever decision was made

What a shit show this thread is, reminds me why I try not to enter the politics board. My perspective must be tainted since my whole family and everyone we came in contact with must have dem awesome T cells after we were exposed to this virus back in late January, then proceeded business as usual for another 7 weeks until the government shut down education and small businesses.
Herd immunity will be the only endgame here
