  • How soon will Trump declare that he is no longer a candidate for reelection?

    I think that he pulls out by August 15, 2020.

    He’ll never pull out. Who says he’d even leave office if he loses?

      In fact, I'm surprised he's stuck it out this long. For a man with an ego the size of the sun, the long-running hostility and disparagement he's faced from the mass media, has got to be a miserable downer. He's a man who, more than anything, craves to be praised, but he's not, and he can't turn that around - so quitting just before the convention just may be the plan. It might be the only thing that could save the Republican senate in the Fall. Otherwise - look out for a blue tsunami.

        Do you think the Republicans have a back-up plan if this in fact does happen??? And who might it be?? Pence?? Maybe that's why he started wearing his mask this week??

          Trump is conflicted. He likes the prestige of being president, but he doesn't like doing the job of the president. He hates to lose much more than he likes to win.

            IFFF he sees in OCT. that he'll likely lose BIG, as in if Biden is heading towards 400-Electoral votes, he'll bail. He doesn't want his name associated with a wipe out like that. IFFF he thinks the race will be somewhat close, he'll stay and cry foul on the voting/rigged election and let the lawyers mess with it. The GOP is going everything they can on the voter suppression front, plus the fact a chunk of voters are gonna be afraid to go to polling stations with Covid going on along with 7-hours lines crated by the GOP tactics. Primaries have shown people will do almost anything to vote, and that energy will intensify come November...

              If he bails, it will be before the convention, and it will be because of pressure brought by the party. Unless the polls change dramatically, November is shaping up to be the kind of blue wave catastrophe from which the Republican Party will need a decade to recover. They won’t mind losing the White House as much as losing the Senate, and with a “normal” candidate for president, they might not lose the entire ballot, which a Trump candidacy appears to promise. Everything depends on what the polls will be like next month, which, in turn, will depend on how the media is spinning the economy and the pandemic.

              Also - what the heck is "IFFF"?

            I beg to differ WJCJR...Donzilla will do what HE wants to do as he always has. He doesn't listen to his advisors or party leaders as shown nearly everyday he tweets. He wants his moment in the convention sun to have one big national spewing of shit to wash over his base. The polls in late September will sway him leave or stay like i said above. 4-months is a lifetime in politics...It's gonna get weird, even by the standards of the last 4-months.

              As I said, “IF he bails”, not he WILL bail, which I’d put at about a 30% chance of him doing – at all. But he’ll have made up his “mind” prior to the convention, which would be the perfect platform to declare himself the greatest president of all time, but then, for whatever reason his spinners can come up with, decline a renomination and release his delegates. It’s a strategy which could save the Senate for Republicans. Otherwise, because of Trump’s deepening loss of support across nearly all demographic categories, ballot-sweeps in states like in Colorado, Maine, Arizona and North Carolina, could flip the Senate on election day.

              No...IF Donzilla bailed out, that's the DEMS nightmare as GOPers sick of his shit would actually have someone to vote for. The wartime President lost the biggest battle he faced and pretended it didn't happen.

              Don't get cocky TARB...A million things can happen between now and Nov. Guarded optimism, yes, but there is so much crap that can happen and change the landscape, nothing can be taken for granted. Biden doesn't have the hate that HRC had, so that's a plus, but Donzilla could bail out on the election, Biden could have a health issue, perform horribly in the debates or any number of things. National polls in swing states look go as of now, but in 3 1/2 months is when it counts. That approval number I post below is a very big indicator of what can happen come Nov. though as the Independents that went away from HRC will come back to Biden along with white women are enough for a win if we don't get any surprises nobody saw coming.

              Well, the GOP shenanigans using all their voter suppression antics might sway a state or two, but if he has the balls to actually take it to the finish line, the concession speech will be epic! 😁

              No president since 1940 with an approval rating below 48% has won reelection...

              Today's Gallup poll had Donzilla at 38%.

              Not fake news...

            Trump keeps preaching to his shrinking base with his racist dialogue, alienating himself from everybody else. He will lose the election by landslide proportions.

              The bigger question is when will there be a palace coup? When will Mother McConnell and the rest of the sorry Republican leadership march into the Oval Office and drag Le Grand Orange out by his toupee?

                      Thing is, Hillary 4 years ago was still contending with Sanders for the nomination, and was “caught”, via Wikileaks, and outed in late October, of having tried to rig the convention through the DNC; and then, a few days short of election day, James Comey’s grandstanding before the press on newly discovered emails, absolutely killed her chances at holding “swing” voters. Trump will need similar October surprises to close a widening gap with Biden, but it would need to be big.

                    Typical Trump supporter the election is Nov 3. By November 4 Republiclowns will be saying it was fixed and its fake news.

                      Donzilla is already saying it's rigged, just like 16 when it was rigged...But he won, so how was it rigged again?

                      The hate for HRC was big in 16...Biden gets all those votes from Obama turned Donzilla voters, plus white women, plus African American vote. He just hast to win MI, PA, WI and it's his. He'll get other swing states for cushion.

                      Donzilla's 38% approval rating sucks. Nobody since 1940 has won with a number under 48%.
