Do YOU really want 4 years of this, let alone 4 on top of that ?
Disaster? We see the Obama years as a disaster and Clinton would have been even worse. Trump is abrasive but he's done some outstanding things starting with conservative picks for the courts. His election turned SCOTUS conservative at least for awhile and will affect lower courts also. The potential for more influence will be even greater the longer he's in office.

I'm extremely pleased with what Trump is doing as a President. You guys are the one who the minute he was elected started the Impeach movement. You don't want to see the good he's doing.

Your hatred has blinded you to the good Trump is doing. Your Russia, Stormy BS is grasping at desperation.

Thank god Hillary's not President.

As for him winning again. First of all, with all the investigations into his corruption, it is pretty slim that he will make it another year. Secondly, we won't be sitting on our hands the next time, like we did this past election.......we never envisioned that enough people were actually dumb enough to vote for this con man, but we won't make that mistake again.

Finally, his "charm" is wearing thin with even his own base, and all the daily dumb things he does have eroded a lot of their confidence in him. To put it mildly, he has been his own worst enemy, and he is getting worse by the hour............no, make that by the minute.
Re the bolded, which of these two things do you think will happen:

1. Trump will quit

or

2. For the first time in U.S. history, Senators from the sitting President's party will vote to convict the President and remove him from office.

^^^^^ If you don't think he'll last another year, the only likely possibilities are the two I listed above as, even if the Democrats take the Senate in November, it is very unlikely that they will flip it all the way up to 67 votes.

That's a personal matter between Trump and an accuser which is making news, as it would about any president with a loose zipper.

There's a very clear answer for that, and I've hinted to it on this forum before because most people on the left seemed to have missed a detail. Frankly, I have no desire to clue you all in until after he gets re-elected because it will be even funnier then.

But yes, you all appear to have missed something - it was in the news, but it was easily missed since the left was having a meltdown that day.

As long as Dems vote with purpose—not placing worthless protest votes—he will not win.

Nah. You guys like to say that, but it’s not true. Trump’s marks will continue to vote for him...regardless of how many times they’re criticized (even cruelly). Trump won because people didn’t vote with purpose. Sadly, they weren’t inspired to vote for HRC, so the Trump half-wit vote had more impact.

Trump will stay in office for his full term.

As far the election, Trump could come out as the anti-Christ and his base will support him. That base is about 35% strong I would guess. Add another 10% who lean toward him and he will remain a contender for re-election though not a shoo-in.

Trump will never and could never win the popular vote, but given the distribution of his vote he could win the electoral value.

My own view is that by 2020, the enough of the nation would have grown weary and sick and tired of the Trump Reality Presidency Show that they will want it cancelled.

What purpose?

The only purpose I see is "We hate Trump". Guess what? That doesn't pay the bills. Well - It might for some of you who are paid to post anti-Trump material... but for regular people, we gotta live and work.

The only disaster has been among the deep state and elite minded liberals.

President Trump comes to the people. Bypasses the corrupt msm to show us the truth. I just love watching him at rallies and would love to attend one. Most of us don't care what he did before becoming President. Don't believe one moment of Russia helping elect him. I am not a Russian and voted for him and will gladly do it again. I think he is the best President since Reagan.

BTW: My son in law works for a company that because of the tax credit, every employee got a $1000 bonus. They went on their first vacation in 10 years as a married couple

Vote with purpose means voting for one of the two major parties—one of which will win. Throwing votes at a non-viable 3rd party candidate is as good as not voting.

(I’m not opposed to a grass roots 3rd party campaign, but throwing general election votes to a non-viable 3rd party candidate isn’t the way to do it.)
