That's it? I understand the whole 3rd party issue, and you can take that into consideration...

What about your purpose? What's best for you?

Many black people sat on the sideline in 2016 because many weren't working. Now more of us are working. That would seem to be a good purpose. Protecting the citizens from crimes by illegal aliens... that would seem to be a good purpose.

The only purpose I see from the other camp is his tweets are mean, and he has a big ego. His mean tweets and big ego haven't stopped him from helping Americans more than the Democrats ever have.

Trumpism is alive and well
He may indeed win in two and a half years but his rally there looked like all the others.

I agree.

Especially now that it is clear Trump's agenda is only for the benefit of the rich and super-rich.

While the base has been rooting him on as if this were professional sports he has betrayed the ordinary folks of this country. They may gloat about their 'team' winning, but who's team is it really? ... who is the owner of this 'team' ? ... certainly not the working people and consumers.

I see Sheldon Adelson just threw another 30 million dollars at the Republicans, who among us has that much money to buy influence in the agenda of the party? He doesn't do this for us ...

I actually believe tRump will be re-elected. Progressives have lost the culture war and tRumpís second term will galvanize a conservative Supreme Court for decades. Better prepare now folks because tRump is NOT to be under estimated and, sadly, the left has done NOTHING to find a message that resonates with most Americans. The only thing keeping me from despair is knowing that I will retire within months of his inauguration and will be getting out of here permanently by Spring 2021.

This. What does the Dem party offer except more illegals, sanctuary cities, higher taxes, Nancy Pulosi and Maxine waters? They talk about bringing back Joe Biden or running Corey Booker. There is no message. There is no platform.

Trump is rocking the economy, North Korea, calling China out, high drug prices. Trumps on a roll and Dems got nothing to offer except the same old same old.

BTW America is tired of this Impeach, Russia, Stormy crap. It's gonna bite you in the azz in the next election. Keep yelling Impeach, it's motivational.

The only disaster has been among the deep state and elite minded liberals.
Do Trump supporters really believe that the opposition only dislikes him based on party alone rather than actual policy and behavior? How does that make sense?

What is the ďdeep stateĒ? Canít you guys just have a normal discussion that doesnít revolve around the ridiculous? God America really has an education problem, and long term, the lack of ability to engage in critical thought is going to be the countryís downfall regardless of whether Trump wins again. Itís so disheartening.

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.


But you Democrats have been saying this since he was elected. "Trump won't make it a year." "The electoral college will reject him." Do you guys ever get tired of being wrong?
