2020 Election: Sinkable or Unsinkable Donald Trump

Recommended Posts

2020 Election

The likely to be impeached, but not convicted, Donald Trump goes into full campaign mode for reelection. However, unlike most incumbent presidents, Trump faces a tough primary challenges as constant inter-party foe John Kasich has been creating a campaign apparatus since 2017. Ben Sasse, another vocal critic, aims to hold Nebraska delegates from Trump, as Lindsey Graham hopes to do the same with South Carolina. Susan Collins has a chance of holding the entirety of New England from Trump. Jon Huntsman enters to hold Utah's votes. Collectively these favorite-son candidates are hoping to hold enough delegates to throw the election to John Kasich in the convention. Rand Paul, despite some approval of Trump, is hoping the field is so split that a Libertarian Republican nomination can finally win. 

For Democrats, supposed front-runners Joe Biden, and Elizabeth Warren have decided not to run. Bernie Sanders is hoping to increase his influence from 2016. Terry McAuliffe, who gained national attention during the Charlottesville protests, runs as a much more moderate Democratic candidate. Even more moderate, red-state Democrats Steve Bullock and John Bel Edwards enter the race. Cory Booker, who has made some inroads among progressive of late, also enters. New California governor Gavin Newsom runs as a progressive alternative to Sanders. John Delaney, the first Democratic candidate to declare is still in the race. Finally, in a shocker, Hillary Clinton has vowed revenge on Donald Trump, saying as the winner of the popular vote in 2016, that she has a right to attempt for the nomination again. 

The Libertarian Party and Green Party will be the major 3rd parties.

I'm hoping he sinks like the wreck of the Edmund FitzGerald! :P

July 1, 2019

Polls show a tight race for the General; however, that's far off. The Republican frontunner is Pres. Trump by a rather large margin (40%), with only Kasich (10%) as a threat. For Democrats, shockingly, Hillary Clinton (18%) is a slight lead over Bernie Sanders (16%). Booker is a strong 3rd at 10%. The freshest face to national politics, Gavin Newsom is at 7%

July 8, 2019 -- Paul Ryan: Impeachment hearing should proceed

As expected, Speaker Ryan, under bipartisan pressure, concedes that an impeachment hearing should proceed. Trump, who had dared Ryan to elevate the issue, was reportedly visibly angry at the White House. One unconfirmed reports is that he badly damaged the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. 

This announcement is certain to raise the fortunes of the Democrats. 

July 9, 2019 -- Trump storms out of press conference

After four straight impeachment questions, President Trump storms out of a press conference, leaving White House press officials scrambling to explain Trump's behavior. While Trump maintains a huge lead on Kasich, the fact that there are 44% undecided Republican voters means that Trump must gain hold of his narrative if he is going to get renominated. 

July 10, 2019 -- Conservative Pundits see Trump losing his ability to lead

In an unusual turn of events conservative pundits, including at Fox News, are worried that Trump may already be a lame duck. Even Newt Gingrich, who hasn't quite given up hope, admits that Trump's time to turn this around is limited. Another pundit, expect impeachment, but acquittal, and that conservatives will have to allow a time for a dip in the polls for Trump, but that he could have time to make it up before the convention. 

July 11, 2019 -- I Told You So

Several Republicans that refused to endorse Trump in 2016 are heard telling reporters, "I told you so." Former nominee Mitt Romney, Fmr Gov. Jeb Bush, Fmr Pres. George W. Bush, Fmr Gov. John Kasich, and several others were interviewed within the last few days by major networks. 

A new poll shows Trump's lead over Kasich to have been reduced to 11 points. However, if the Convention were held today, Trump would likely be the nominee. 

July 12, 2019 -- Sen. Richard Burr sets impeachment hearing date

Sen. Burr announces that an impeachment hearing for Pres. Trump will take place in a week. Some Republicans had pressed Burr to act quickly, and not to drag it out, so that a Republican victory could still be possible in 2020. Trump's advisers, while bashing the impeachment committee, seemed relieved that the process would begin quickly. 

Polls begin to show Trump's lead over Kasich has dropped to only 4 points. 

Democrats have been rather silent in the last few days. Political analyst Nate Bronze suggests that Democrats don't want to alienate voters who may personally like Trump, but who are considering to abandon him for someone more competent. 

July 15, 2019 -- Kasich takes the lead; Democrats in disarray

The majority of polls find John Kasich now in the lead (22%) to Pres. Trump (20%). Rand Paul is a distant third at 9%. 

Despite Trump's collapse in the polls, Democrats are failing in General Election polls, as frontrunner Hillary Clinton is massively unfavorable among undecided voters. A poll shows that John Kasich would soundly defeat Hillary Clinton in a general election matchup. Clinton has increased her lead (20%) over Bernie Sanders (15%) within the last week, as Cory Booker (11%) and Gavin Newsom (9%), currently in 3rd and 4th, begin to drain Sanders's support. Some predict a Clinton campaign collapse within a month, in which case, 5th place candidate Terry McAuliffe (8%) is likely to benefit.

I'm trying to see what caused it. It isn't an event, because I don't have any events for the rest of July.

Yeah, I can't get past this error. @LegolasRedbard doesn't seem to have had the error. I wonder if @CalebsParadox will. 

It looked at one point it was gonna crash, some time before the actual primaries began, but I got through it.

I saved often, and just left it to struggle while I played something else
