Yes, a Trump-branded franchise crashing and burning because of graft and incompetence is a totally unprecedented watershed event that will forever cast doubt on the relevance of Donald Trump. Can you imagine if he'd run for president after bankrupting a casino or a vodka company or something? His campaign never would have gotten off the ground.

Or it could be a sign that right wing stigginit can't exist without the people to whom they're stigginit.

The sign of a truly directionless and inept people.

As long as a good 40% of the country believes this shiathead should be re-elected, he is not "washed up" subby

if anything the media keeps coddling him with attention, bad or good.

I don't hang out on HuffPo because there are limits to the feedback loop - maybe if you love the smell of your own farts (bad example) - but if you're so insecure you need constant validation on you're extremist bullshiat views, maybe TFG's digital ass wind is your cup of Kool-Aid.

I wonder what his rallies look like these days.

Have you heard Old Yeller recently? He's got dementia or Alzheimer's or something, dude is not right in the head, he can't stay focused, he trails off and even his normal act of being a high energy hate machine is falling flat. When you can't even rally the dumbest of the dumb of the racist of the hateful, that's a bad look.

I'm wondering if the best thing to attack him is just... showing him live, and unfiltered. People are in love with the MYTH of TFG, if he's really as gone as he appears him being the frontrunner for their party might be a good thing. Not entirely sure it's worth the chance, but watching a dottering old man struggle to keep from wetting himself during a debate, isn't exactly the "Strong Man" imagine most authoritarians like to salivate over.

An empty gesture, sure, but the numbers are still there.  I'm referring to a Five Thirty Eight Poll that shows 42% have a favorable opinion of him.  Which means 2024.

One hell of a challenger would have to appear to knock him off that throne.

Truth Social is failing for the same reason gettr and parler and all the other ones that never even got off the ground long enough to have a name will never see success. You might think it's the fact that each after the next was/is a buggy infosec nightmare, but you'd be wrong.

These platforms' shared fatal flaw is their failure to understand what a conservative social media paradise is. Conservative paradise isn't a place where conservatives hang out with other conservatives yukyukking about how dumb the libs are and feeling free to use the N word because there's no woke libs there to stop them.  Conservative social media paradise has been, is, and always will be a place where liberals come to hang out and conservatives come to smear sh*t on the walls, tell libs they're "triggered" and then scream about the first amendment when they are banned for violating a private business's TOS.

You will NEVER succeed in making a place conservatives want to be until you first make it a place liberals want to be.

Down about 6 percentage points from the Election results.  I guess that's kind of good.

Sort of.

Not really.  It's all he needs to win the South, basically.

The rollout has been less than an exciting brand-building event.  Lethargic doesn't even describe it.  Comatose.  It's been a comatose rollout.  Pull the plug, it was always brain-dead anyway.

Let's see...

Can't successfully sell red meat, alcohol, bikini contests, gambling, daily airfare between NYC and Washington DC, real estate classes...farking bottled water (excuse me, "Dump ICE!"). And somehow, even with tens of millions of dollars and a stolen template, he can't sell social media to his MAGAs who literally won't go anywhere except social media for their daily fix of anger and/or disasterbation?

Shocking

Point: 538 does not conduct polls, they just report them.  The latest CBS poll says 69% of the GQP want TFG to run in 2024, about 35% of the voter population.

The difference with this situation is that it's happening right in front of them, not in the easily ignorable past before maga even existed. Does that matter? Dunno. Probably not.

Still no change... no motion in the ocean. No bits and byte flipping, lack of progress, an ex-social network, can you even social by registering users for almost a month and doing nothing with them? I mean you would think they would have worked on the waiting list some since launch, but other than pushing me back from 294,342 to the number above, nothing has happened at all.

Well the disposable email I used is beginning to get TFG fund raising spam, but other than that.... USELESS!

I'd call it a total failure but you have to have something working in the first place to have a failure and I've yet see any evidence of that.

How "latest?"

I was referring to this page, which shows yesterday.  I mean, if we could knock off another 10 percentage points from another poll, I'm ok with that.

It's still Texas, Florida and other Electorally rich states in the South that would support another run.

Exactly.  Say you have the brattiest little 6 year-old bastard in a room full of china and other priceless shiat.  If he's all alone, he might break a few things but that fun wears off quickly.  Now put a babysitter in there and that little farker will break everything at just the right speed and with just the right melodrama to maximize the babysitter's frustration, dismay, panic, anger, all the good bad emotions.  Social media without liberal babysitters to fark with is no fun.
