Who would do that? It seems like it'd be the worst thing for Iran to do if they're trying to say their only problem is with the US, and if it was the US, trump already would've been bragging about it. It feels like it genuinely was an incredibly poorly timed accident.
He could, but it won't be due to high turnout for Trump, it falls directly on the shoulders of democratic apathy.
I did the research, and if you took the votes Obama got during both his elections, he would have beat Trump both times versus his 2016 election results. The issue is voter apathy made too many democratic voters stay home in the battleground states, and thus Trump won the EC. It was Hilary's game to lose and she gave it up when she ignored certain bg states because polls made them out to be "safe".
We have to hope that the utter contempt Trump pulls with a lot of American's will lead them to vote, even if just out of spite. That, or whoever wins the nomination can actually fire people up. Beto may have dropped out because his success in Texas didn't translate to a national scale, but he showed what a good speaker can do to election even in a hard red state. Yes, he lost, but he helped turn over a lot more house seats then people expected and was closer then he really had any right to be in this red ocean. This is why I kind of hope Bernie actually gets it this time. I simply can't see anyone else firing up voters as much as him right now.
I just really hope Biden does not get it, because seriously, we don't need another upper democratic establishment candidate.
I still haven't found a single person enthused by either Biden or Bloomberg. I'm personally probably most in favor of Buttigieg at the moment, though I imagine a gay president would be a very tough sell in half the country. Then again, that part of the country will probably vote for Trump for a third term in 2028, no matter what, so...
Trump was bragging today about how cancer deaths are at an all time low. Yeah, they've been steadily declining since the 1990s. The real effect of the Trump candidacy on cancer rates won't be seen for decades.
Oh, you will. It'll be a competition to see who can cast the most votes - Russia, China, Ukrian, Iran, or North Korea. Oh, and I guess some Americans will vote, too, in places that don't matter like New York and California.
