Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

I thought Trump won because of Russia? I guess I was wrong. O yes the polls again saying that his favorability is 20-30% higher.
Trumps Covid management? Have you checked how the EU is doing? France, Spain, UK, Italy, Germany, Belgium,  Their population combined is about the amount of the US and they had over 150k new confirmed cases in the last 24hrs! So stop this Covid is Trumps fault when its all over the world and the US economy is doing much better then all of them.

They also got hit a month before we did in wave one. We'll be seeing the same thing here in the next 3-6 weeks.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

Forget about in a month or two - you can't pick a spot in the middle of a pandemic and just look at that. On a cumulative basis (ie total since the pandemic began) , there is a huge gap in cumulative deaths and cases per capita. Even when you just look at new cases/deaths, it's only cases that the EU has recently surged past the US, not deaths. And while much of the EU has indeed had a harsher economic downturn than the US, there are many, many countries that outperformed the US both in health outcomes and economics. And the general populace within many of the EU countries with worse downturns is still better off than the general populace in the US due to various social safety nets.

So while Trump/US may not have done the absolute worst job in the world, it has been far, far from the best job. And the best job is exactly what we should expect from the US.

Republican registrations are higher than D this year, bc Dís has been registering since 2016 & R only before these elections.

Ultimately Trump won bc Democrats thought Clinton would win anyways and she was disliked (particularly by women). Biden has record turnout and his favorability polls are 20-30% higher than Trump. It also doesnít hurt that Trumpís Covid management was a colossal failure and people have more time on their hands to vote.

Finally, Iím not making up my mind based on my own feelings but on cold hard data. It is far, far more definitive than 2016.

Says the guy who wrote this
Its amazing that you would mock someone based on your confidence Trump will outdo the polls. You should at least treat the polls as a reasonable outcome, if not a baseline assumption. There are plenty of state level polls that give Biden OH IA FL PA WI MI AZ NC GA TX, and 400 electoral votes. Most of those states have zero polls that show Trump winning. Very different than 2016.

Where did I ever write that Trump will outdo the polls? I mocked you based solely on your OWN writings.

Why did we resurrect the 2016 thread? We didn't have enough going on?

Because there are some with nostalgia for that election.

Why don't you just go to the actual 2020 thread?
