  1. If the election were today, he'd win pretty easily. Like you said, it depends on how Biden and squad is doing. I think the Trump thing is played out. At this pointe everyone knows where they stand on him good or bad. And Walker is the most likable Trump guy I think he' ever had. I doubt they have a mad stampede to block him from a Democratic perspective.
  2. I think you're really overestimating Trump's sway good or bad nowadays on elections (non Presidential). At this point, everyone has an opinion on Trump. Unless he's running for President again, I think people just aren't that focused on "We'll show him!" nowadays. A Terry loss on Tuesday is just the start of Republican dominate in 2022. BUCKLE UP.
  3. what? The bill didn't get passed in October? I thought that was the deadline, Nancy? I'm stunned! https://www.politico.com/news/2021/10/28/biden-house-democrats-517416
  4. Unless Herschel just totally flops the debates bc of experience issues, I have real trouble seeing him lose. The man is just the definition of likability and charisma. If they decide to attack him on "character issues" this is going to be an easy win for him. I also still believe the media (especially local) won't attack him that hard as other Trump supported candidates.
  5. @vcczar, I guess the mudslinging has begun. No mention of his mental issues though Herschel Walker Republican or Democrat is easily one of the most likable humans in politics. Good luck trying to paint him in this way
  6. Does he need to provide a link? We live in the era of fake news, he just needs to convince and persuade more people it's the case. If he does run (even as VP), it's obviously going to be the most controversial issue but complaining about COVID in 2024 is just playing into the GOP's hands imo.
  7. The biggest and probably main debate will be Ron's handling of COVID in Florida. So with facts like these, how will he lose?
  8. This guy is obsessed with Trump. No one is even talking about him Joe!
  9. inflation is not transitory of course they have to say it is bc the already screwed up it is not transitory
  10. The stock price of SPAC company Digital World Acquisition Corp. skyrocketed on extremely heavy trading volume Thursday after news of a merger that would launch former President Donald Trump’s planned social media platform. DWAC’s stock surged 356.8% to close at $35.54 per share. Trading in the SPAC was halted multiple times due to volatility. At one point, the stock was up more than 400% to hit a high of $52. Wow! The new AMC Gamestop meme is coming.
  11. The economy is already doing strong. What is not is inflation which will be a permanent problem and Biden already declared victory on 4th of July for covid. He has bungled this completely. FED tapering beginning in November till mid 2022 is also not ideal (but necessary) for the stock market and economy. Meanwhile you can look at people who actually can assert victory such as DeSantis who made bold moves and somehow Florida has one of the lowest number of covid cases today. Trumps smartest strategy has been to lay low (not campaign in Virginia too) and let Biden screw it up for himself without inserting himself into the news weekly. Look at that article I mentioned. Biden voters are hoping for more free cash since they’re running low. That is not happening ever again. People’s expectations of what Biden will do remind me a lot of Obama in 2012 who narrowly won victory. the issue will be Biden trying to declare what a phenomenal job he did by 2024 and yet most average Americans will be dissatisfied with where we are as a country AND how they are doing financially. he really needed to have full power w the congress and senate to enact all the progressives dream bills and goals. Whether it was good long term (5-10 years)or not is beside the point. He is going to have absolutely nothing to point towards for accomplishments and even if they somehow pass this infrastructure bills, his base will be furious over the concessions they made to get manchin to agree. with covid “support” it is a slow trickle downward. There is no “major victory” or happiness or satisfaction. Many people are living their lives mask free, etc depending on the state. When eventually mandates for indoor masks are done, nothing significant will change in people’s lives but dissatisfaction.
  12. Biden is going to to have a tough road. COVID was the time most wanted an establishment president. Without a major crisis, not going to be the case in 2024.
  13. surprisingly , trump can again probably run on being an outsider despite 4 years in office.
  14. Trump will do way better with these random republicans refusing to back him because it gives him something to fight against. Despite all the media proclamations for 4 years, Trump's GOP base is outstandingly loyal to him. 94% of Republicans voted for him, up from 92% in 2016.
  15. Budget bill to nowhere! https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/15/climate/clean-energy-program-manchin.html#commentsContainer The most powerful part of President Biden’s climate agenda — a program to rapidly replace the nation’s coal- and gas-fired power plants with wind, solar and nuclear energy — will likely be dropped from the massive budget bill pending in Congress, according to Congressional staffers and lobbyists familiar with the matter. --- I'd be stunned if progressives don't just torpedo and sink all of Washington down with it now. No infrastructure, no budget bill is happening.
  16. I'm not going to buy into all the "Republicans might win" Virginia hype. I've seen enough. Terry is going to win. The referendum on Biden will have to wait just a little bit longer.
  17. absolutely. and with his other twitter like apps flopping the news won't be able to cover him as much other than rallies.
  18. Trump without Twitter will cut all these issues in half.
  19. Biden was a poor candidate who got immensely lucky on circumstances. It all rides on COVID, but with inflation and no more free money good luck getting the base happy. It's all downhill from here. If they manage to pass either bill by end of October things will improve but there is 0 chance either gets passed.
  20. I struggle to see how Biden wins given he ran on being able to get us out of covid and once again falsely declared victory on 4th of July and that “covid was behind us”. Infrastructure is not getting passed and I give it even less of a chance any more financial aid is going anyone’s way anytime soon. Do you foresee manchin and sinema caving on 2.5 trillion more spending or the progressives? Neither will budge and both will feel vindicated for doing so. pandemic will be a thing till at least April of next year. And this debate on masks, vaccines etc will still be an issue with a lot of residual anger going into the midterm. When people realize they will need to go back to their jobs, they’ve run out of government money and none is coming on the way they will be pissed! even a 50% chance w trump is surprisingly much higher odds than I thought you’d give. That’s good! Agreed ideally the midterms are not about trump and more a referendum on Biden. The Virginia race next month will be very telling to see. and I really wouldn’t get your hopes up on Congress or anything substantial passing. As someone following the infrastructure bill since February, I could not be any more pessimistic. What has become “end of October” will end up being “end of this year” deadline and so on. And by 2022, everyone will be so concerned on getting re-elected no one will be making “sacrifices” at the risk of their job security and supporters
  21. Would like your thoughts on this @vcczar. This article really spells out my concerns for Biden's chances. https://www.politico.com/news/2021/10/11/biden-coronavirus-pandemic-515764 Why isn’t President Joe Biden’s diminished job rating rebounding? All nine participants from Tuesday’s session gave Biden C- grades or lower. And their answers circled back to a similar point: The pandemic and the many ways it continues to hinder normal life is souring their views of Biden. People don’t feel like their lives have been improved. They did sort of feel that promises aren’t being kept.” They point to polling showing strong support for his legislative agenda, anchored by physical infrastructure and social and climate spending packages (*This isn't getting passed unless in a bipartisan way). But Biden’s standing with Americans has plummeted, with his average approval rating plunging by nearly 15 points since late June. He's seen a drop among Democrats and even more with Republicans, but the decline has been particularly steep among independent voters (major red flag). Longwell said she was struck by how similar the concerns of Democrats sounded to Republicans, and also by how little Democrats in her surveys blame Republicans for standing in Biden’s way. It’s a point echoed by nearly a dozen strategists who have compiled or reviewed research into Biden’s precipitous decline. In interviews in the swing state of Georgia and focus groups conducted in other battlegrounds, most Democratic base voters echoed those concerns. Kayla Scott, 30, a cafe worker in southeast Atlanta, said more financial assistance from the federal government to help with the pandemic fallout would go a long way (0 chance this ever happens again). Future Majority President Mark Riddle, whose recent surveys with Change Research look at battleground states and swing congressional districts, called it concerning that Biden’s approval rating on handling Covid stood at 46 percent in battleground states. Just two presidents in the post-World War II era — including Trump — have had worse approval ratings than Biden by this point in their tenures. And although that may be a product of a more polarized nation, his foundering is fraying nerves among Democrats across the country — especially in Virginia, where a governor’s race next month presents one of the party’s first major political tests since Biden took office.
  22. People should start getting pissed at Biden in year 3 not end of year 1. By year 3 there will probably be a parade of them driving along.
