In 2016 I had a very difficult time voting for Donald Trump. When push came to shove, I did vote for him, for two reasons: 1) There was at least a chance that he would appoint judges faithful to the Constitution, and 2) He was not Hillary Clinton. Four years later, I don’t regret my vote. Trump has appointed many good judges, and he is still not Hillary Clinton.
He’s also exposed the Left as the lying, cheating, America-hating extremists they are and advanced the cause of conservatism more than any president since (and, arguably, including) Reagan. I’m still not a fan of Trump the man but I’ve come to appreciate him as a badly needed corrective to the post-American America we are increasingly finding ourselves in. I will be voting for Trump in November without hesitation. He has earned it, by my reckoning.
None of that has anything to do with this post, really, but it’s something I’ve been wanting to give voice to and this seemed as good a place as any.
This post is about soliciting thoughts and recommendations on who I should vote for in the New Hampshire primary, which is up in a few short weeks. I’m registered as an independent, which allows me to vote in either the Democrat or Republican primary. I’m trying to identify a Democrat who has a chance to win, but who will do poorly against Trump in November.
For what they are worth, here are the results from two recent polls:
