“The center and the left, split, demoralized, confused, frustrated, fails to turn out in significant enough numbers to support the presumptive nominee. It’s all too easy to see how the center and the left could fracture as a coalition. In fact, they already have, and are. The splitting of the center and left would only be a continuation of an obvious trend… it adds up to the nightmare of a re-election for the demagogue. Because nobody is really making much of an attempt to understand any of this — much less fight, correct, or change it…  a re-election is probable, right now, and the probability grows by the day. Here is an outline of a few other ways that it could happen.”

I was born in 1941 and have seen a few campaigns. This one is endless, and a real monster lurks in the re-election. Who to believe? I read that Trump has no chance of re-election, and then there are essays like this one.

And in the midst of this --- comes the chaos as Biden wins.. but then talk about his mental fitness begins: "During a town hall on Fox News Thursday night, Trump once again alluded to the idea that Biden is unfit for office. While the lies about the Bidens and Burisma will likely continue, the Daily Caller reports that this new line of attack will be a focus for Republicans and the Trump campaign.This issue, however, is not simply being raised by Trump and his enablers. Steve Friess reports that a memo about Biden's "cognitive decline" is circulating among Sanders' supporters. The Bernie Sanders presidential campaign is disavowing a list of post-Super Tuesday talking points distributed to supporters and surrogates on Wednesday morning that suggest Sanders partisans attack a resurgent Joe Biden on his "record and obvious cognitive decline." The material, seen by Newsweek, was posted on various social media sites and on internal WhatsApp groups for supporters of the independent Vermont senator as an official campaign communique, but Sanders communications director Mike Caspa said he'd never seen it before. "We've all watched Biden stumble with words during debates and extemporaneous speeches. So as people committed to examining facts and evidence, it is important to gather what we know about this particular attack and not simply dismiss it because of the sources from which it is emanating."

Agggh!

And then, there is the outright hostility of the media like The NY Times "The New York Times recently leaned into the "Bernie Bro" narrative from 2016 with what can only really be described as a hit piece. "Bernie Sanders and his Internet Army" "relied entirely on anecdotes about the nasty things Sanders supporters have said to make its case that they are uniquely dangerous. Yet incidents like the ones the article describes are a statistical certainty given the millions of young Americans voting for him that tend to be active online. Given they make no attempt to analyze whether Bernie supporters are more likely to bully or threaten people than supporters of other candidates, the NYT could have easily written a similar article about any major candidate. If there is any doubt about the conclusions the Times wants readers to draw, just read the four bold quotes that punctuate the article"

Personally, I think people are going to tune out, and that voters will stay home rather than turn out -- exhausted from trying to parse the truth"and Trump will win-- as this election becomes one about money, not ideas; Organized Money vs. Organized People': New Sanders Memo Details Stark Choice Between Biden and Bernie

and to help or confuse you, I found this. If You Really Think Trump Is Favored in 2020, You Haven't Thought It Through : A recent poll from Monmouth found that two out of three Americans think Trump will win re-election this fall.
