According to the professionals, his bump doesn't last more than 3 minutes.

He's still at +10 with the important Russian troll farm demographic.

Pretty obvious that people noticing the discrepancy between Trump's rhetoric and real world.

But can push harder. I'd like to see his opponents stop arguing with every distraction that Trump tries to throw up, and just keep repeating the basic points.

Trump never has anything positive to say or do; all he has is abuse.
Trump listens to Fox News instead of experts, so he waited too long to deal with this.
Trump is surrounded with incompetent people who can't organize test kits and protective gear for our doctors and nurses.

And I'd love them to start pushing the line that Trump, like Reagan, probably has dementia.
Every time he gets angry and starts shouting, quote Donald jnr's suggestion that that means dementia.
Point out how all-over-the-map he's been jusyt in last week about re-opening.

You know what I wish? I wish he were capable of earning a full rally around the flag bump. I wish this asshole were the kind of person who could step up and unite the country. Provide direction, maybe some widespread testing and PPE, that sort of thing. I wish he were capable of doing what it takes to get that 75% approval rating going into election season.

Trump is what happens when you let the trailer park elect a President. I'd trust Bubbles with my cat but not economic policy.

Not true in all cases. Puerto Rican's got paper towels. Can double as toilet paper in a pinch. So they've got that going for them, which is nice.

And today, the price of oil closed officially worthless, meaning oil field layoffs and less GOP campaign contributions from oil executives.

Not that long ago, a fair rebuttal would have been, "yeah... as long as they're the 'right' Americans, so the t(R)eason-party could shout 'NOT *REAL* 'MURCANS!' at the top of their lungs"...

... but the new reality is, they no longer care if the dead are the "right" Americans.  Their own kids could be in that toll.  Errr, even their straight, white, MAGA-agreeing kids could be in that toll now and they'd be fine with it; they've long been willing to sacrifice their own kids who don't meet those criteria.  It has become a full-blown, reality-denying cult.

Not sure what we can do to come back from this. If anything.

But if this biatch of a virus wasn't so infectious, if asymptomatics weren't contagious, if it stayed confined to those who are out "protesting"?  At this point, I'd be out hanging up fliers for Trump rallies.

I do not have a 12" penis but I did have a woman complain about this. I hate to say it but it made me feel a little better about myself. Of course that was years ago, my self esteem is no longer tied to my penis. Got tired of him making me do stupid things.

The difficulty is the demographics most likely to need hospitalization/intensive care or die from the virus are the demographics from which the GOP draws most of their support: old and unhealthy men. You're right that if it were most severe against people with excessive melanin in their skin, they'd LOVE it.

Who has the patience to sit on the phone for 5-10 minutes to answer a poll. I certainly don't, and I have to think any normal hard worker or hassled by the daily runaround, isn't going to have time to answer the pollster,
leaving only Olders, and Shut-Ins and Paranoids to answer these polls.

Non of the polls seems to factor that into their numbers.

I'm figuring when all is said and done,Donny Delirious is probable at the lower to mid 30s

Yeah, I've always assumed that the polls that figure approval and elections all sway towards the bottom 50% of the country. Folks out of work and angry enough to answer, retirees with nothing better to do, people passionate enough to answer in order to express their outrage (which can come from both sides of the political aisle). Most of the 'average' Americans aren't going to have time for a political poll. Most don't have time to review products they actually buy and use, let alone a political system which for better or worse doesn't tend to affect their lives except for the very best and worst of exceptions.

I do. My phone line number's previous owner was a Republican and Rasmussen calls my house about every two weeks. My wife and I love giving tRumpy horrible reviews on the most right poll possible. Its fun seeing the right's reaction to horrible news a week or so later.

Just not a swimming pool with a 12" gold penis. That would be an excellent way to drown!
