Is HE going to do t?


"People are jumping ship", only in your dreams.
Yep, nobody who voted for him in 2016 will ditch him for trying to keep his campaign promises.

If Walsh were to become the next president, he would be hit with the same hate as Trump. Any Republican will be called "racist," "white supremacist," "bigot," yada yada yada.

As much as we like to come down on Trump voters, not all of them are pickup truck with a dog in the back, low intelligence people. Some are actually nice people and smart. I think those are the people who will not be ashamed to admit they made a mistake. But his core base, some of whom we see daily on here, will never back down, and if he loses, they will be the most vocal and conspiracy believing people on the planet.

As someone who couldn't bring myself to pull the lever for either candidate in 2016, I looked at the 2016 elections as an choice between two bad candidates. I'm a right leaning moderate although in all honesty I tend to lean more Libertarian than anything.

As for 2016, I simply wasn't going to vote for Hillary...she epitomizes everything most people (on the right and left) find disgusting about the politically connected establishment elitist class in Washington. Trump, on the other hand, was an outsider with no political experience whose brash arrogance and narcissism scared me too much to feel comfortable voting for him either. Trump won of course so we were going into uncharted territory.

The single biggest eye opener to me since Trump was elected hasn't been his behavior or even the fact that despite all the doom and gloom predictions of how he would destroy the country he has actually done a much better than expected job. Neither of those have come as a shock. What HAS shocked me is the reaction to Trump's presidency and the absolute nuclear level freak out from Democratic politicians, Democratic voters, and the mainstream media which leads me to your comment about a couple of your friends.

Your friends may truly regret voting for Trump. On the other hand, they may be scared s###less of letting anyone know they voted for him in 2016 or are daring to vote for him in 2020. Trump supporters practically have been driven underground by the maniacal hatred from the left. Your career and maybe even your physical safety is at risk for daring to admit you support the president. The silent Trump voter level in 2020 may dwarf that of 2016 given the risk some people run for admitting they support the president

Nah--it was the latest Fox News Poll. And I really doubt people are afraid to tell Fox News they would vote for Trump.

"...Fox News poll released Thursday showed President Trump losing head-to-head matchups against four of the top Democratic presidential primary contenders.

...The poll found Trump with 39 percent support among registered voters in head-to-head matchups against Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). The poll found Sanders beating Trump with 48 percent, Warren winning over Trump with 45 percent and Harris winning with 46 percent support....

Former Vice President Joe Biden, meanwhile, beat Trump in the theoretical matchup with 50 percent support among those surveyed, compared to Trump's 38 percent..."

Former Republican Rep. Joe Walsh is calling for a primary challenger to take on President Donald Trump in 2020, as he is reckoning with his past controversial comments and apologizing for his role in helping elect an "unfit con man" to the presidency.


People are jumping ship faster these days trying to get away from Trumpís sinking ship.
I'm a democrat that voted for Trump because I got tired of the anti constitutionalism of the left.

If I were a thinking, successful woman, I would be highly insulted by the things he says and the things he does to women. I am always surprised when some woman says she can accept that and actually vote for such a person. But, I guess that is why I am not a Psychiatrist.
Beating the same dead horse you've been beating for almost 3 years now dude. You need new material. Seriously.

But it sure as hell doesn't mean we support the anti-American democrats. If I have to choose between the two, I'll choose the lesser of two evils.

It's not just that he lives in Oklahoma, it's also that he's gay man, he has a strict Southern Baptist family, and to top it off, he's the pastor's son. But I can't help but wonder if, at least a little bit, he likes playing the victim.
