    What does it matter? There was an election 3+ years ago with an unpopular democratic candidate and she still drew millions more in votes than Trump.

    The polling shows that he is even more disliked than he was three years ago.

    Trump has a group of very dedicated supporters that will go to the ends of the earth for him but that doesn’t mean the majority of Americans feel that way.

    The 2020 election will be a close affair and Trump’s road to victory will not be through the popular vote (which he will likely lose by an even bigger margin) but through the electoral college.

    maybe because these people are more anti trump than pro anything, there are still 100 candidates running to be the Dem candidate, and the candidates are focusing on the early primaries in a small number of states

    My biggest worry is that Trump will allow another country to interfere with this election again, and thus get himself re-elected, for political favor.

    the
    No I’m more enchanted by the fact his face looks like it was hit with a cast iron frying pan and he should be an extra in a Grimm fairy tale.

    Alan Dershowitz? A pedophile that was close friends with Epstein and has made calls to lower the age of consent? LOL

    He now has two know Epstein child sex slaves claiming he repeatedly raped him and the secretary for Epstein claiming Dershowitz would walk into the room once the child was summoned for her “appointment” and always leave right after the child left.

    Only the best for our President.

    Yeah Alan Dershowitz cannot make a full commitment because he has to be out of there by 2 pm to **** the freshmen girls when they get off the school bus.

    Looking at the news and they were showing Trump in Austin, which is not surprising....

    But it looked like the place was almost empty?

    Don't forget about the squeaky clean Ken Starr who has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Baylor rape cover up.

    Where are you seeing polling showing this - can you link please.

    Because as an outsider looking in i'm seeing a recurring trend:

    - All day every day in Australia you heard that Scott Morrison was the absolute worst and he would be removed from office. Voting is held. Result: Scott Morrison yet again.

    - All day every day in the UK you heard that Boris Johnson was an absolute nut job, no one could vote for him, he's a joke just like Trump. Voting is held. Result: Absolute landslide BJ victory.

    - All day every day around the world you hear that Trump is a nut job, no one could vote for him, etc etc etc....

    This argument that impeachment is overturning the 2016 election. Unless Hillary Clinton is going to be president if he is removed it isn't overturning the 2016 election.

    He's got quite a few Republican Senators who will be getting murdered politically in November over their shilling for Trump is this goes the way McConnell and Trump want it to go.

    Whenever Susan Collins won in 2014, I think it was like 40% of the Democratic electorate that voted for her. Probably about the same or slightly less for Corey Gardner. I don't think either can rely on one single Democratic vote in November at this point, but maybe if they think they can still make a case of independence from here to November.

    I think it actually behooves McConnell to make this trial as boring as it can be, and try to get just 4 witnesses max. Keep it from being a circus, and allow just the bare minimum of Senators in tough re-election campaigns to vote guilty, but not enough to damage Trump politically.

    If it is super partisan and it's clear the fix is in for Trump, I think the Senate will pay a huge price in November and McConnell has to be smart enough to understand that even though he has to walk a fine line on two things-

    -He needs to at least put out a notion he's in for Trump since he needs Trump base turnout in November himself to beat McGraff
    -He needs Trump to THINK he's trying to fix the trial for Trump so Trump doesn't go apesh$t crazy
