    Trump had the opposite effect on me. Rather than saying I can’t take any more of Trump and his antics, I have found that I have become inured to them. Biden seems to me to be a pathetic old Democrat who embraces Antifa and won’t do anything but bleat weakly about the chaos in the streets and the ugly, pervasive leftist agenda. 

    Biden is pretty offensive to me too. The hair sniffing, Tara Reade, the racist remarks (Indian accents in 7/11’s and recently that supermarket shelf stockers are Hispanic or black). And I haven’t forgotten the plagiarism that revealed him to be not quite all there even as a younger man.

    I am not really voting for Trump but against “struggle sessions” and people telling me to raise my fist or else in restaurants. I am voting against a return to the ludicrous Obama foreign policies including the Iran debacle. The thought of Susan Rice as Secretary of State makes me shudder!

    I really wish we had someone better to fight against all this but we don’t. We have Trump. And I’m voting for him.

    The polls are exactly where they were in 2016.

    I’m fine with using polls as a guide.  I’m not convinced Trump is as out of it as this crew thinks

    Time had Hillary up 14 12 days prior.

    You and me sis’tah.  I love this podcast, but they are a little “too much” lately, which is hilarious since they are talking about Trump being “too much.”

    Also, college students aren’t wearing masks when they go out with each other, when the “adults” aren’t walking around them like the Gestapo.  Why do I say this?  I know way too many college students.  Those who are seriously frightened by the disease aren’t on campuses.  The others just want to find some sense of freedom somewhere, which they aren’t going to find anywhere unless they meet in the dark, away from chastising eyes.  So they meet in the dark.  Or they carry a “power to the people” sign in the park just in case as a “get out of jail free” card.  They don’t get as sick because they are mostly young and healthy.  I think we know enough about this now to say that with some confidence.  Or we are going to be wearing masks until 2024.

    Nor should they. 20 year olds are practically indestructible. They can even eat pizza and drink beer without a gastronomic catastrophe.

    Most people should be going about their lives as normal. Its not like a pandemic is unprecedented or even unusual, they happen every decade or so. To illustrate how much things had changed, do you know what world events occurred in a pandemic? Woodstock…More than 400 000 people gathered in a field without proper hygienic, food or water prepared for them… Have you ever heard a statistic of how many died from attending Woodstock?

    I didn’t vote for Trump or Hillary in 2016.

    I am unequivocally voting for Trump this year.

    His deregulation agenda is the complete opposite of Obama’s hatred of private enterprise

    How can Biden be leading by 1 point or 10 points?

    There is almost zero enthusiasm for his ticket.

    How can the Commentary panel place so much trust in Never Trump polls?

    John P wrote in NY Post recently that we should get ready for a Biden administration… careless and irresponsible

    Biden can wreck his campaign in 5 minutes which is why his handlers won’t let him answer unscripted questions

    Tim Pool, YouTube celebrity, voted for Obama in 2008, skipped 2012 and 2016 and is unequivocally voting for Trump this year.  He said his biggest reason was the riots.

    While all the polls are very discouraging, I keep running across people who did not vote for Trump in 2016 but will now.  

    In truth, not a ton of Republicans “left home” in the last contest, but I think a lot of those are “on their way home.”  

    I mean…. I voted 3rd party in 2016, and Trump still embarrasses me.  I think he’s an absolute idiot.  But his policies have (mostly) turned out fine, and the Left is crazy.  

    I wonder how significant people like me will be…. how we will change the numbers.  

    I no longer trust my instincts.  At all.

    I voted 3rd party in 2016 and will vote for Trump in November or maybe October.

    Trump doesn’t embarrass me mainly because I don’t take him literally.  He has actually grown on me.  But no matter, his personality is not relevant.  His policies are relevant.

    Trump is not an idiot, reckless possibly but not an idiot.  Biden is an idiot.

    We vote for Presidents on policy not personality.  Policy trumps personality.

    Especially if the other party is deranged and corrupt.
