The more blatantly racist he is, the more that 30% loves him.
 
2020-07-07 3:29:53 PM  
So 27.3%

Isn't that right about where Bush the Lesser was, during his nadir?

Definitely a crowning achievement, Trumpy boy!

I've been saying for awhile that I'm observing the Republican party bleeding members.

Very few are actually joining the Republican party in recent years, but many more are renouncing their affiliation.
 
2020-07-07 5:03:51 PM  
Well, let's look at the current Republican party platform:
-Unwavering fealty to the God Emperor
-Hate brown/black people and freely express your hatred
-Grift for those at the top
-Bankruptcy for farmers by destroying foreign markets
-Military hardware for police to use against citizens
-Tariffs for everyone because the Businessman doesn't understand how trade/tariffs work
-Tax breaks for companies and the 1%

So pretty much those other 29% are in it for the racism.

Think of it this way.  He is distilling the remains of the party down into where only the Nazis are left.  You know, the ones who are happy with caging children and separating families.  The ones who LIKE finding a way to spread plague for the benefit of more $.  When he has it down to only the dregs, we'll all know who the dregs are, as anyone who is still voting for this charlatan is obviously no longer fit to even be an American and should instead be wearing swastikas on their arms.

I hope I wasn't too strong.

If there is any sort of omnipotent being watching, I can only hope that they deal Dumpster a loss beyond even what Mondale had. Something that is historic. The yugest. Something that will so crush his fragile little ego, that he'll take the cowards way out than actually face reality.

Never underestimate the power of a popular propaganda network. The Democratic primary and 2016 shows the power all corporate media propaganda has in getting people to believe stupid things. Fox has the biggest audience.

26%...It was actually an insult on Fark back in 2007/2008. "26%er." I still bear the scars.

I had trouble, reading some statistics from an earlier post, figuring out how he got a 38% approval rating when 90% of Republicans approve and only 2% of Democrats approve. Then I read a LOT further and saw that his percentage among INDEPENDENTS is horrible.

Independents now outnumber Republicans https://outline.com/xVaNbD

:New data from Ballot Access News, which tracks registrations in the 31 states that require voters to register by party, shows that independents account for 29.09 percent of voters in them, compared with 28.87 percent for Republicans. "

Then I remembered that I'm a registered Independent (unregistered as a Democrat after the DNC fiasco last time...but I vote blue no matter who...and write in Vermin Supreme if the person is running unopposed).

"As of April 2020, Gallup polling found that 31% of Americans identified as Democrats, 30% identified as Republican, and 36% as Independent.[3] Additionally, polling showed that 46% are either "Democrats or Democratic leaners" and 46% are either "Republicans or Republican leaners" when Independents are asked "do you lean more to the Democratic Party or the Republican Party?"[3] " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politic​a​l_party_strength_in_U.S._states

1877 was when they sold out African-Americans to keep the Presidency and ended Reconstruction.

That's gotta sting!
Independents rate the economy a top 2020 election issue, and the survey finds 51% of independents saying they prefer Joe Biden to Trump, versus 33% who prefer the president, while 17% prefer another candidate or remain undecided.

Republican voters don't seem to realize that Trump would watch them all choke on their last breaths if it meant he could stay president for 4 more years.
 
2020-07-07 5:31:15 PM  
Seriously, do not underestimate the number of closet racists and GOP nuts that still would think Trump is the lesser of two evils and will vote down-ticket Republican.  Sure, the people wearing their white hoods in public are the loudest and stupidest, but there are plenty that are closet-MAGAts.

I work around people that submit applications for voting in FL, and it boggles my mind that a large number of Hispanic people and those moving from Puerto Rico will rush to affiliate with Republicans.

Granted, that's 2019 from January to September, but all the crap to date to that point should have Republicans bleeding registrations and Democrats getting a lot more.  Add into that the screwing over of felons who should have had their rights restored due to an overwhelming passing of a ballot amendment in 2018, and you're seeing the big picture.

Again, popular vote means jack crap--the way the electoral is set up, the cheaters are looking at whatever way they can get to 270, period.

Again, check your voter registration or register.  Get your butt out and vote.  Motivate or help get someone out to vote this year.  If these feel good stories are making you feel all secure and warm and fuzzy, then wake the fark up and do your part to secure an election.

Yes be kind to the voters but psychologically torturing politicians with emotional abuse until the changes in brain structures are visible on MRI scans, is something I strongly support.

Bad memories of Biden supporters don't help Biden win.

First and foremost, Trump is not a Republican.
Trump will win the "election"  He's already poisoned the election with claims of fake mail in ballots. 
His true cult members will fight tooth and nail that he won, regardless of the facts.
