Forget the Experts, I think: what will happen on November 3rd, being in the future, is unknown. I personally think that Trump is heading for a big win. I’ve got a few data points which suggest it…but so much in in flux that no one can really say what the public mind is. But, in the end, I expect the Convention themes to play out. The Democrats were all about how dark and miserable the times are and how we must all repent of our sins…the Republicans were all about fighting through the bad times because we’re the greatest nation, ever. I suspect that a majority still loves America.
I also suspect that a majority is turned off by endless riots. I mean, for goodness sake, you’ve made your point, Lefties! Give it a freaking rest. But someone in the DNC said that the riots would turn people away from Trump (in fact, Biden’s campaign intern for Twitter pretty much Tweeted exactly that out this morning). And, hey: maybe the people will? I don’t think so, but anything in possible. But Biden’s recent half-hearted condemnation of the violence (not the riots or the rioters) indicates that Team Biden is worried about how things are going…Biden’s scheduled campaign appearance in Minnesota, which last went GOP in 1972, it a gigantic warning bell. But Team Biden has also apparently ordered the rioters to turn it up to 11…they practically assaulted people leaving the White House yesterday.
Trump seems happy, engaged and geared up. Democrats are already talking up not having debates at all. Biden mostly remains out of sight. Harris gave the response to Trump’s acceptance speech. I’m feeling pretty good. Secrets is up for pre-order (hint, hint, guys; go buy it!).
Let’s have some fun and then win the election.
