    We know why that is, because Trump ruffled the feathers of the Republican establishment.

    Or he's an ego manic only interested in what is good for him and not the country. He goes against pretty much every conservative policy bar judges. Starts trade wars, has to bail out farmers with $b due to trade wars which is just another word for socialism, courts autocrats around the world while insulting longterm allies. The likes of Rick Wilson and George Conway are or were GOP to their core. They can see he's destroyed their party and turned it into a cult of Trump where anyone who dares to question him becomes a target of his twitter account and his hoard of MAGA cultists. If the poll number continue on like this into September watch as the Senate GOP turns on him as they fear for their jobs and majority.

    If this isn't the perfect summary of Trump's entire presidency, I don't know what does.

    I'd imagine a lot of military and vets are feeling exactly the same right now. He's betrayed every one of them.

    I think the election is going to be based on the bases of each party + the centre ground.

    It's not just on if Trump can defend his record. But it's also about can Biden build his base.

    People voted for Trump because they saw him as being anti-establishment.

    You think this because you're a fan of trump.

    Did that sound incredibly profound and not at all blindingly obvious in your head before you typed it out? ;)

    All brontosauruses are thin at one end, much much thicker in the middle, then thin again at the far end.

    I listened to Biden's press conference today. It was amazing as I'd forgotten what a statesmanlike American sounded like.
    In all seriousness though, he didn't sound senile at all. He stumbled over a couple of words but then I do that and I'm just over half his age.

    I hope Susan Collins has got something to calm her down, she's got some mild grumbling to make regarding the Russian bounties.

    He suffered from a stutter as a child. You can hear it still on occasion.

    Interesting video about Trump's unemployed immigrant grandfather.

    For all his thousands of misgivings, you have to at least admit that running an election campaign based on being a plague spreading racist is a bold strategy.

    No, it's because I'm an intelligent person who can see beyond my own opinions.

    How many millions of people do you speak for with your opinions?

    As I said in my previous posts I agree with you in the sense he's let his base down by not following up on his key campaign slogans from the last election, plus his eccentric antics. That will be more damaging to his base than Biden is, so far.

    It is obvious, though as you can see from Apex it seems it needed to be said :)
