National Review: Why Trump's Losing

Trump is thin-skinned, self-obsessed, small-minded, intellectually lazy, and ill-disciplined. These never seemed to be great qualities in a chief executive, but they have caught up with Trump over the last six months in particular. They have played into his poor handling of the coronavirus crisis and the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd. When times became more serious, he remained as unserious as ever.

COVID has been the main factor worsening his political condition. The damage didn’t register in the polls at first. At the end of March and beginning of April, polling had his handling of the crisis in positive territory, a kind of rally-around-the-flag effect. But the effect was smaller and shorter-lived for him than it was for other officials, in the states and abroad. As of early August, the average of the polling at the website FiveThirtyEight has his rating on the crisis at 58 percent disapprove and 38 percent approve. This is a flashing red light given that COVID is the most important issue to voters at the moment, a rare instance when the economy isn’t the top issue in a presidential election.

Of course, none of Trump’s critics predicted that a deadly and economy-flattening contagion would kneecap him in an election year. But his inability to respond adequately to the crisis is the kind of thing that they had in mind when they warned that his character traits were unsuited to the presidency.

The Trump response, to the Trump virus, has created the Trump depression. WE soon will see Trumpvilles, when folks suffer the Trump evictions. Anyone with half a brain, could have seen this coming, such as OBAMA.

Even the conservatives know Trump is a killer. And they are starting to say so.

Now we just have to hope that Trump takes down enough republican senators with him that it gives Joe Biden a veto proof majority in the senate.

It is looking like that will be a very likely occurrence, when people vote against a Presidential candidate they tend to also vote against their Party at the same time.

Wrote an OP about that BOUNCE, that the right wing was crowing about. Folks WANT a leader. So they TRIED to elevate Trump. Trump COULD have been a hero. But he is sadly incapable.

The only thing the DEPLORABLES cared about, was Stickin' it to the libs. And, he knows nothing, so he tries illegal stuff, then says, I didnt know what I was doing. Causing the system to fail.

He is losing in Florida, a must-win state for Republican presidential candidates for roughly 100 years. He is behind in North Carolina, which successful Republicans have won for the last half century. Arizona and Georgia are battlegrounds, and maybe Texas, too. Biden has been reliably ahead in all the Blue Wall states, in large part by eating into Trump’s lead with whites or reversing it.

Wrote an OP about how Florida will be Trump's downfall. That is where he started losing the elderly. And once the elderly saw how Trump didnt care if they all die, terribly, alone, gasping for air they turned on him.

You seriously think the Republicans are going to lose 13 Senate seats? That is not likely at all.

You really believe America is better of being led by democrats? Have you watched what is happening in NYC, NY, NJ, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Minnesota, Minneapolis? If you are looking at the positions of democrats toward lawlessness and our police officers and think the democrats will be good for the country, I wonder what you see good in any of that.

The Republican party is leading us down a path to EXTINCTION. Ignorance of anything they dont like. FAKE. They are habitual and manipulative LIARS.

So yeah, I do think that there is MASSIVELY more stability when a dem is in control.


What do you thin of the ARTICLES perspective?

No, PANDEMIC causes recession, when the ONLY tools we are allowed, are woefully inadequate. And we do those meager steps half assed, with mass rebellion.

Trump stopped and slowed testing, has never mentioned contact tracing, and thinks quarantining is nazi. He has told his fools to forego masks. He has undermined even his experts. On and on. He owns ALL this.

A few days ago, when the number of those who died of the virus in the U.S. hit 170,000, Joe Biden in a speech said that if President Trump acted "a couple of weeks earlier, that 51,000 maybe even 57,000 lives might've been saved".

Consider what Biden was actually saying. Even if Trump had acted earlier, 113,000 to 119,000 would still have died of the virus across the United States ANYWAY!!!!

So why the blame being heaped on President Trump?

Because that was with the SAME measures. If we added contact tracing and quarantining, we would be as other WINNER nations.

In 2016, Trump was the outsider.

In 2020, Trump is the insider. And he sucks at the job of president. He's incompetent and childish.

And the GOP solution to urban problems is to gas demonstrators to Trump can hold a Bible aloft...
