What if something will cause Trump supporters to abandon him en masse when the 2020 election rolls around? Is there any reasonable hope that someone else will win? Someone else?

What if something will cause Trump supporters to abandon him en masse when the 2020 election rolls around? Is there any reasonable hope that someone else will win? Someone else?

I'm not a Trump supporter and never have been, so I can't say for sure what will make Trump supporters abandon him at mass. I suspect almost nothing. Fear is a very strong motivator! When times get tough and people see a lot of change around them, a lot of people move to the extreme of politics, it's called populism. About the only good thing about President Trump is taking advantage of that. As long as people fear the future, marginalized and unrepresented by top politicians, they will continue to vote for Trump or people like him.

I don't see anyone in politics

I'm not a Trump supporter and never have been, so I can't say for sure what will make Trump supporters abandon him at mass. I suspect almost nothing. Fear is a very strong motivator! When times get tough and people see a lot of change around them, a lot of people move to the extreme of politics, it's called populism. About the only good thing about President Trump is taking advantage of that. As long as people fear the future, marginalized and unrepresented by top politicians, they will continue to vote for Trump or people like him.

I don't see anyone on the political horizon, not in the United States or around the world, who is capable of reversing this momentum right now. I fear that we (the people of the world) will have to go through the eye of the needle, as we did in WWI and WWII before Trump or someone similar is eliminated. The world seems to be moving inextricably towards hatred and conflict. It seems that we are destined to make the same mistakes over and over again.

President Trump, a bit like Brexit represents a political direction or momentum that seems, in the short term at least, unstoppable. Sometimes the human race needs to gorge itself on its hatred before it can embrace peace. If we could start to accept why it should be this way, then maybe there really would be no need for politicians like Trump. President Trump is a mirror of our emotions, right or wrong, he represents democracy at its best.

Because only half the country voted, Trump was elected by less than 25% of the eligible electorate, and a significant number of them were people who only voted for him because they hated Hillary. His base will never leave him: they have somehow developed a Dear Leader-type relationship with him in which they would rather tell strange stories of false criminal conspiracies against him than live in the real world. But don't worry about those people. They got lucky with a particularly bad Democratic candidate last time. They will continue to project all the obvious criminality of their Dear Leader.

His base will never leave him: they have somehow developed a Dear Leader-type relationship with him in which they would rather tell strange stories of false criminal conspiracies against him than live in the real world. But don't worry about those people. They got lucky with a particularly bad Democratic candidate last time. They will continue to project all the obvious criminality of their Dear Leader onto people of integrity, but this time the candidate will not be Hillary. There are many people who can win the rust belt. And there is at least one candidate who can win the rust belt AND result in millennial voters and the rank and file: Pete Buttigieg. It is not well known now, but there is a lot of time.

I think it would take self-cleaning on the part of the Democratic Party to cause this. The newly elected Democratic Representatives would have to form a group and find a way to control themselves. This would mean prosecuting the criminal behavior of its leaders like the Clintons, Comey, Rosenstein, O'Bama and all other members of the Deep State with impeachment and prison terms. This would start to show people that the left is not above the law. If then they could revise their platform from "Hate Trump and obstruct him at all costs" to "What can we do to help the American people?" I

As it stands, more and more people view the Democratic Party as a nest of snakes who just want to hang on to their money and power at all costs.

If President Trump gives in on his campaign promises.

It faces HUGE obstacles because the left is in control of the mainstream media, education and entertainment. With a few exceptions, today's universities are becoming socialists in droves. Why Americans cannot see what capitalism has done for this country is beyond my understanding. (I'm starting to think that this takeover was orchestrated by the communists in the 1950s, because everything has come together too 'perfectly'; all at once are coming out of the closet ...)

I just HOPE that President Trump has another 4-year term to fight it. I don't know who else is strong enough to 'stand up to the stream'.

Oh yeah, he'll probably lose. People realize that he is a cheater, a racist and a liar. His tax cuts have been shown to help the rich, not the middle class. Farmers have been hurt by their trade policies.

tRamp has the support of racists and bigots, as well as rich and stupid. It will not be easy to get those people to change, but many will abandon it in 2020.

This will undoubtedly happen if the stock market crashes and a recession occurs. I think most of the Democrats running have a good chance of beating him, whether the economy stalls or not. Her victory in 2016 was in part a revolt against Hillary Clinton, and she still won the popular vote. Young people and women are now full of energy, as the midterm elections demonstrated.

All you have to do is abandon your stated goals. As long as it stays the course of immigration, the second amendment and civic nationalism, and the economy does not completely collapse, it will remain fully supported by its base.

In response to your question; "Nothing" and "no".

President Trump tried to stop a democratically legitimate election.)

I have had real nightmares about both scenarios.

First of all, it's rare for a Trump supporter to acknowledge that Trump is doing something troublesome ... not to say that the Democrats are worse.

This really worries

This really worries

If Trump is re-elected, it will be 4 more years awakening to that feeling of dread ...: that millions of Americans talk about.
What are you going to do today? Which American or foreign head of state will Twitter antagonize? What incoherent press conference? What are you going to complain about today? ... the opposition party is doing what its own party does not want or cannot do.

Every day, he stirs a shitty saucepan, but never licks the spoon.

It stirs anxiety and outrage among the American people and calls it leadership.

I have ZERO faith in the Republican Party to be held accountable. I have ZERO faith in the judgment of the Republican Party. I have no faith in the idea that the Republican Party is acting in good faith and has just made some mistakes,

If Trump drastically cuts Medicare, I probably won't be able to find a job in the profession I've been in for 26 years. I work on strokes and head injuries as a speech and language pathologist. I do all contingent / prn / work as is. The job market is tight. My husband works in health informatics. This will affect the jobs of millions of Americans, as healthcare is one of the largest employers in the US.

I really hope all of this pays off for the Republican Party.

If he wins a second term, another 4 years of blaming everything on the Democrats and letting Hurricane Donald hit the whole country. Then 2024. What if he doesn't want to leave? I don't trust the Republican Party. Are you going to just decide to say “Fuck everyone else, we like your policies. By any means necessary. "

While I want less tension and polarity, Trump supporters must begin to see things from the perspective of all Americans. "I'm supporting him even though he's kind of an idiot, but he's getting things done and implementing our policies."

Ok, well, hat tip for your honesty. There has not been a president like Trump from either party in modern history. Getting your (mostly illogical) policies implemented by any means necessary is not a noble victory and does not raise the opinion of your party.

The abortion rate is the lowest in decades. There are many variables and one of them is Democratic policies. But of course, keep moving forward with the same strategy you've been using for 60 years.

What if Trump loses?

, I also fear it. As much as I don't like guns, I'll get my CCW if it seems necessary,

It is not brain surgery. Again, I don't trust Trump or the party; will incite violence. The rest of the party in office: what indicator has the party given that they can be trusted? An anonymous letter in the NY Times?

Say what you want about the Democrats, but the Republican brand is like a pile of rubble right now.

We are not going to see reconciliation on a significant scale for about a generation.

Once again, I hope it's worth it.

I've been through Trump America's intellectual exercise against the rest of America, the idea of ​​civil war that's floating around.

They will have the South and parts of the Midwest. There's no way I'm giving the natural beauty of Michigan to Trump. They will pollute everything.

They will probably have more veterans, but not all. They have guns. Does the rest of the country have less? Easy problem to solve.

We have most of the universities, which do medical research, computer science.

We will have Silicon Valley. If anyone thinks that the only way to win a war is through force and arms, they are wrong. Trumps America will be overtaken.

Now what about families? There will probably be divorces. What about LGBT transgender children born to conservatives?

I understand that Trump supporters hate liberals. A civil war is the nuclear option. But it can open the eyes of conservatives who think that liberals do not contribute to the greatness of this country.

We sure do.

Republicans have always acted as if everything good about this country is due to them and everything bad is the Democrats. I wonder if these people really think we are Americans.

Also, Trumps America is likely to have more men. And fewer young people.

Half of active duty service members are unhappy with Trump, new Military Times poll shows

edit October 28, 2020

I don't feel the same. I am still concerned about retaliation in various forms of Trump losses.

  1. If he loses, I am concerned about what Trump will do from November 5 through January, when the next president takes office. He promised that he would not go quietly
  2. Creating chaos with massive disinformation campaigns
  3. Armed demonstrations that we are supposed to consider peaceful
  4. More political hatred ~ even though the Republican Party has had the majority for most of the last 4 years, we will hear about all the problems that exist going into 2021 because of the Democrats
  5. Vengeance, revenge, revenge. Increased membership of white identity groups.
  6. Massive boycotts
  1. Trump lost the election.
  2. Trump is losing the post-election.
  3. Trump has been president of the United States for four years.
  4. Trump got more than 70 million votes this week.
  5. That may be the second highest Democratic vote for anyone in history.
  6. Fewer than twenty people become presidents of the United States every century.
  7. By this comparison, Trump is more successful than the entire American population, except between ten and fifteen Americans.
  8. Losing and sulking is exactly what I predicted in many Quora posts.
  9. If Trump had done something effective regarding COVID-19, he would have easily won.
  10. About 47 percent of Americans voted for him.
  11. They were mainly rural but

  10. About 47 percent of Americans voted for him.
  11. They were primarily rural, but regardless of their location, they won't pack to go anywhere.
  12. They have the right to have their views represented politically.
  13. Trump did it well and accurately from his point of view.
  14. They didn't want Washington to be almighty. They did not want the two political parties to work closely together.
  15. With Biden they will get most of the first and little of the second.
  16. The main division in the United States is constitutional, state, and federal.
  17. Fifty states with fifty sets of laws ensure that federal (US national) law AND the US Constitution are weakened at each clause.
  18. Look at how each state has each iteration of each type of electoral regulation. There should be a best practice model. How can you have fifty different best practice models? Culture is defined as how we do things around here. I understand how states want to retain their autonomous political personality, but projecting culture onto best practices is an endemic flaw inherent in the United States that requires a solution.
  19. A big mess is the best description.
  20. Most of the big mess is that state governors are held accountable for COVID-19 policy and outcomes, but the president rejected the WHO's best practices and flagged and undermined some of the best epidemiologists in the world.
  21. May I suggest a solution since I identified a need for one above?
  22. Establish an all-party review of the United States Constitution. Let it be chaired by a widely respected Republican politician. Have among its members constitutional experts, theoreticians and jurists.
  23. Start a national debate and discussion.
  24. Assess the level of agreement and disagreement about the change.
  25. The US Constitution is, along with that of France and Ireland, the best written Constitution in the world, but because of how the US grew to 50 very different states, it is now not fit for purpose.
  26. The Constitution of the United States was based on the French Constitution that was designed for a unitary state and was modified by the founding fathers to ensure that the original states were not disadvantaged by its provisions.
  27. As a conclusion point, I can congratulate the people of the United States of America for having acquired a president who is more likely to do much better in the next twenty years.
  28. The evidence for this is that O'Sullivan (2019) found that we are exiting globalism and entering multipolarization. He predicts the poles like America, EU / Africa and China / Asia / India.
  29. Trumps Wall, therefore, was exactly the wrong policy at the worst possible time.
  30. What the United States needs most is greater tolerance, a reduction in prejudice, and a revision of the United States Constitution.
  31. Constitutions should always be reviewed periodically, whether they have a problem or are working well. The Constitution of the United States works well, but it can work better.

Yes. I gave him a vote in 2016 because he was a wild card. I was not (I am) happy with the way our federal government works. I felt like Hillary was just another political establishment figure (I'm happy to vote for a woman or ANY competent candidate). But Trump's overall tone, statements, and actions leave me feeling like a bloody fool. Many of his followers are complete idiots.

Trump has been a disaster for our country and has made our country the laughing stock of other countries.

Trump has been a disaster for our country and has made our country the laughing stock of other countries.

These sad people clinging to him only show their lack of intelligence / concern for the future of our country and our world. Trump supporters seem to identify with him because he is reckless, defiant and belligerent. What "great" qualities do you exude as a leader, right?

And Pence. What a joke. Do you think your simple smile will be enough cover to make you inept and extremely ineffective as head of the Coronavirus task force? Go back to Mom, who I'm sure is wearing the Pence family pants.

This choice? Unfortunate train crash. If I were dumber, I'd have fun like most sheep ... but instead I continually sigh. Currently sitting with a bag of popcorn and watching the dramatic inevitability of Trump having to finally admit defeat and give in. What an idiot. No respect for anyone but himself and the almighty dollar.

My parents, longtime Republicans, voted against Trump. I think Trump lost a lot of smart people who leaned to the right. Once again, it's sad to see people who continue to see it as the best option out of this shit-filled hell our country looks like these days.

Just stop and stick your head in the Florida sand so the rest of the world can move on.
