A new poll shows Trump defeating any Democrat. The electorate is getting accustomed to the “new normal” of outrageous behavior accompanied by outrageous lies. We don’t mind if our president is an asshole whose only real success involved being an asshole on a reality TV show. Christians don’t mind if he’s a fornicator. Libertarians don’t mind tariffs and protectionism. He appeals to all those who fear others not like them, and that particular category seems to be growing larger by the day. Progressive ideas don’t stand much chance when the people being squeezed are yelling “Tighter! Harder!”

It’s because the Democrats have not given everyday American citizens anything to vote FOR.
Some of the candidates are pushing Medicare For All, which is a good start, but their reward for doing so is to be criticized by the leadership and the alleged front runner.
All the Democrats have done is throw red meat to their base (Russiagate, impeachment) and actively undermine and attack the one candidate who is most successfully speaking directly to the people.
His body recovered from his torment and became hale,
but the shadow of his pain was in his heart;
and he lived to wield his sword with left hand
more deadly than his right had been.

As long as the economy ‘holds’ (illusion that it is going great for the average person) and Biden is the nominee, I put Trump’s chances at 55% plus. IF the impeachment then trial is bollocksed up by the Dummicrats, then 60%.
Biden is going to be SHREDDED over Burisma via hundreds of millions or even a billion dollars worth of multivariate attack adverts. 40% or so (and they VOTE en masse) of the nation is entirely brainwashed into rabid RW hounds of hell. If Trump is reelected and if the Repugs hold the Senate, kiss the SCOTUS goodbye (7-2 or even 8-1 hardcore RW) and also get ready for the political arrests and show trials.
There is no one of sufficient power to stop them at that point. Americans are not going to riot and die in the street when the pre-defined ‘swamp/deep state’ pantomime villains are tried and locked up. Hell, Trump will push for live executions and pay-per-view it. Rule of the MAGATs will be brutal beyond what so many realise. Truth itself is in the process of being utterly obliterated.

Y’all are going to be hearing me say this a lot. National preference polls like this one are next to worthless. It’s the state polls that matter, and even then they’re mainly good for forecasting trends. This is also a Suffolk poll, and they often oversample Republicans. I don’t believe it.
