If you are like millions of others who want the Trump nightmare over like yesterday, you feel good about where things stand right now, given Biden is ahead in all polls, including comfortably so in key battleground states.
You also have a sick feeling, knowing what happened in 2016.
As I have been saying and continue to say, the dynamics are significantly different enough to avoid a repeat. For one, Biden does not have the baggage Hillary had that dragged the ticket down.
Second, Trump now has a record that confirms all the fears and concerns many of us had and shouted to hoarseness only to be drowned by the cacophony of racist noises that ultimately made a difference.
Third, there’s COVID-19 which is still raging. The irony here is had Trump properly and effectively handled response to the pandemic instead of dismissing it and undermining his own government’s experts, he could have easily rode on the success to victory.
He did not and that may be the single most important reason he becomes a failed one term president, worse than any in history.
That being said, it’s important to note Trump is counting on three things to pull off an upset worse from our perspective (those who want him out) than the one he pulled off in 2016:
1. Success in tagging Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris embrace leftist policies, and won’t stand up to the violent excesses of the far left, which is the messaging the campaign is pushing hard and helps explain why Trump is doing even better in some battleground states.
2. Rousing white working class voters who did not vote in 2016 to come out and vote in large numbers come November 3rd.
3. A leveling or beginning to level curve on coronavirus spread by election night, which Trump has a few unethical and even illegal tricks to pull, including announcing availability of unproven vaccine worse than he has already done with hydroxychloroquine and recently plasma treatment both of which are gimmicks.
Biden’s task is to strategically counter each one of this and I know I speak for everyone who wants this embarrassment of a president booted out of office to say nothing should be left to chance.
Let’s all do everything we can to help make sure #BidenHarris is elected and, most importantly, register to vote, if not yet registered and VOTE!
As one voter nicely summed this on Twitter: Never count Trump out. Never underestimate him. Never let your guard down. We need to keep fighting until the very end. November is still far away.
Far away indeed November is; let’s keep fighting to the very end.
Never count him out. Never underestimate him. Never let your guard down. We need to keep fighting until the very end. November is still far away.
