    Is it just possible that older people have seen the horrific results of how COVID has been annihilating them and blame Trump for his lack of an effective response? Those are indeed the people that Trump needs to win reelection but they’re too terrified to leave their homes for fear of dying. It’s a neat conundrum the President finds himself in; people are scared to go out because of surging COVID cases, but he’s opposed to mail-in voting. 

    Really painted himself into a corner on this one.
