some facts about the upcoming election:

"the silent majority" is a hoax. there are more dems than gop.

the dems outvoted the gop by 3 million.

conservatives are the minority. so how can they win? gerrymandering for one, the electoral college for another.

all that aside, how does "teamsports" come into this? regardless of who is nominated by the dems, all the dems are going to vote for that person.

so the true battleground is the independents, for both sides. the dems have to pull back on their progressive ideas. while the majority of the country wants to move forward, they want to do it in baby steps. the current dem platform is too far for most people. it truly is the race that the dems could lose, rather than the gop winning.

for the sports analogy. some teams are really good, but cant get out of their own way. they lose games rather than getting beaten. if both teams play their best, the superior team wins. however, sometimes the superior team just f's up and beat themselves, giving the win to the other team.

thats the situation right now. the dems are going to beat themselves. just like they did last time.

remember, the majority of americans didnt want trump, and they still dont. however, a voter in wyoming equals 3.6 voters from california due to the electoral college. (so if you really want your vote to count, move to wyoming)

the only way to win is not through getting the backing of the people, but the electoral college. so that is where the dems should focus their efforts.

so, with all of the above being true, who will win? trump.

why will trump win? because the dems are trying too hard. they keep throwing touchdown passes, and the gop just have to wait for a pick 6. while people want to move forward, they will gladly fall on the "same ol'" if things move forward too rapidly. trump represents that certainty that things wont change too much. trump is a cheeseburger to people needing to go on a diet. the dems are a keto diet.

this is just a strategy analysis. the candidate choice of the dems is also to be questioned. biden, 10 yrs ago, would have been a good moderate choice. baby steps forward, but still comfortable. bernie is just a bull in a china shop. the dems had their chance to pick a nice moderate that would swing the portion of the gop disgusted with trump, and the independents, but blew it in favor of name recognition.

my prediction is a rehash of the last election. trumps loses the popular vote, but wins the electoral college.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi guarantees America that President Trump will not be the person sworn in on 1/21/2021. She said that in a sinister manner also.

Democrats biggest problem is their policies. It doesn’t help that their candidates are horrible, but at the end of the day people vote policy over personality.

The popular vote doesn't matter, win it all you want. Nobody cares about it because we know Democrats use dead people, illegals votes, etc. The country will choose the next President the same way we always have. Using the electoral college. By the way, I predict you guys won't even win the popular vote this time around, even with the dead and illegal votes.

What makes me so sure is the independent votes. Trump won last time without any record in politics, all of his rights negated as a US citizen by the intel agencies and Democrats colluding, nonstop negative coverage from the MSM, censorship from social media, false rape and child molestation accusations, nonstop fake news trying to portray him as a racist, etc.

How do you expect to win the popular vote when most see right through all those charades now and Trump is now running on a successful term and a booming economy, lowest unemployment in history, wage rises for the lowest earners 10X more than previous administrations, Criminal Justice reform, trade deals, etc.? What policies does Biden have that can beat that track record, given his previous track record?

"the silent majority" is a hoax. there are more dems than gop.


240 million voting adults in the usa.
ruffly 60 million dems and 60 million repubs. True that there are a few more dems.

But the silent majority does exist and it's the 120 million adults who don't vote.

Imagine if every adult that could vote did vote?

Really because Gallop says America is center right...
Best check your source sport...

Do you even know what gerrymandering is? Because I don't think you do...


all that aside, how does "teamsports" come into this? regardless of who is nominated by the dems, all the dems are going to vote for that person.

In other words a cult of personality.
Gotcha!


so the true battleground is the independents, for both sides. the dems have to pull back on their progressive ideas. while the majority of the country wants to move forward, they want to do it in baby steps. the current dem platform is too far for most people. it truly is the race that the dems could lose, rather than the gop winning.

The Dem platform if too far left for anyone who works and pays taxes agreed. When you run on a platform of hate and malice that will happen...


for the sports analogy. some teams are really good, but cant get out of their own way. they lose games rather than getting beaten. if both teams play their best, the superior team wins. however, sometimes the superior team just f's up and beat themselves, giving the win to the other team.

Sounds like you have a fat stack of precipitation trophies. The Democrats f'd up when they stopped working for Americans and started working for special interests.



thats the situation right now. the dems are going to beat themselves. just like they did last time.

Actually Trump beat them because he was able to speak to a broader group of Americans while Democrats called everyone deplorable.


remember, the majority of americans didnt want trump, and they still dont. however, a voter in wyoming equals 3.6 voters from california due to the electoral college. (so if you really want your vote to count, move to wyoming)

Remember these things.
Trump is still your president and will be for 4 more years. The electoral college is there to protect people like me from people like you.


the only way to win is not through getting the backing of the people, but the electoral college. so that is where the dems should focus their efforts.

On abolishing the electoral college?
Gotcha.


so, with all of the above being true, who will win? trump.

I don't have the patience to completely dissect this progressive word salad anymore. But it's pretty clear the OP consumes mostly social media propaganda. That's clear.

So after trump wins, will the Democratic Party divide into the Socialist Democratic Party and the Bland Democratic Party?
Who decides who can ba ina party anyway? Isn't there a socialist party already? Why isn't Bernie, AOC and others part of that? Why do they get to infect the dem party? Can they be booted out?

I really wish I could share the confidence of everyone who thinks Trump is a shoe-in, but I can't. A lot can happen between now and November. The degree of corruption and the lengths the Democratic party will-and has- gone to in order to be the all-powerful ruling cast is frightening.

A president biden is the worst case scenario, giving Democrats carte blanche to make sure no other party ever comes to power again. They will change all the laws needed to insure remaining in power- they've already begun by getting drivers licenses for illegals in states that only require that form of ID to vote.

They've already told us what rights and freedoms they plan to take away, but too few seem to be listening.

At least a Bernie president wouldn't have been able to do squat with all the checks and balances.

The thing that made me 100% determined to never, ever vote for another Democrat in my lifetime is their belief that all women have the right to 'abort' a full term baby and leave it in a back room to die. If that's the face of their 'democracy', how can anyone think China is inhumane?

I suggest that a more open minded vision of geopolitics would deliver you to a better analyses of the current geopolitical makeup of the USA and how it will play out in near term elections.

For example you say:

"the majority of the country wants to move forward, they want to do it in baby steps"

In this phraseology you by default equate "moving forward" as interchangeably with the current direction progressive liberal/democrat party is moving. With your only criticism being that the current crop of Democrat leaders are moving to fast toward the destination we all want to go.

Unfortunately this myopic view of reality is the reason why so many on the left appear to be out of touch. Many many people whether they be centrist, liberal, or conservative are unhappy with the status quo. They can all agree that they don't like certain parts of our country or government but they certainly do not always agree on how to fix them.

To have the idea that the "majority" of the people of this country want to go in the same direction as the Democratic part (all be it slower) is to completely ignore the intricacies and differences between us majority.

The same close mindedness can be seen in your dismissal of the people living in wyoming, with their unique way of life and concerns, and believing that what's important to the people in NY and CA should be of paramount concern because more people happen to live there.

Want to know how to win over those independents you think are important? Stop treating them like the fat free version of your cookie cutter idea of what a Democrat is.

actually, i consume beck, rush, and hannity for the most part.

i never said abolish the electoral college. i said use it. btw, the electoral college was a compromise between popular vote and congressional vote according to the federalist papers. it was to protect the less populous, in terms of voters, slave states.

the gop back trump in everything he does as well. is that a cult of personality, too?

i remember watching a top 3 team, lose to a sub par team due to poor passing and other stupid mistakes. an example of a great team getting in their own way and losing to a sup par team. it actually happens quite a bit. the dems had a real shot this time, but they screwed it up starting in iowa and pushing out the moderate voices.

other than that, you basically backed up everything i wrote.

however, i will have to revise my prediction after some of todays news. the dems will fracture and not get the popular vote due to bernie write ins. added together, trump still loses, but due to the split trump comes out ahead. 65/35 biden/ bernie.

i didnt dismiss them. i said they counted 3.6x more than other voters.

also, their lives are no more unique, and their concerns no more valid, than my own. i do not live in ny or ca, btw.

is the inverse of your statement is true: "dismissal of the people living in ny and ca, with their unique way of life and concerns, and believing that what's important to the people in wyoming should be of paramount concern because less people happen to live there."? because at the moment, that is the case.
