I'm with Whoopi concerning polling, no one ever calls me to express an opinion. As for the people in the cult, the glue underpinning them is racism and the mythical return of a segregationist former USA. I chuckle everytime I see or hear the cultists say trumpanzee was great for the economy or he steered the ship of state in the right direction. Correct me if I'm wrong but the only tangible accomplishment was shoveling money to those who didn't need it. The 3 justices were illegitimate because not only did they lie to the American people but they lacked impartiality as well as morality. The gop house not doing anything for their constituents will contribute to the '24 bloodbath.

ArnieB, I echo your sentiment regarding racism and the Drumpf cultists longing for the former CSA. I think that I have received some calls from pollsters on my home phone, but it's hard to tell if the caller ID is really what it says it is with all the spam over the past several years; therefore, I don't answer.

ArnieB, brother you absolutely nailed it 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Let's hope you're right about the house rethuglicans. Sadly, far too many of their maga base is down with the bafoonery and the foolishness, cuz it fuels their racism, sexism, and homophobia.

Trump needs to be convicted and go to prison or else there's too much of a chance this hideous criminal could be our permanent leader.

Unfortunately, this will not happen fast enough. They will delay the trials with appeal after appeal. If the people of this country are hateful and racist enough to allow themselves to get a dictator for their leader, unfortunately, they and the rest of us get what is deserved. Time to look for another country to live in, this one is past its sell date.

I cannot agree that WE deserve this.

In other words, we deserve this for not paying attention. Vote D for ByeDon!

Oh no, no, no. The people on this thread are totally paying attention. I live in a bloody red state and have tried hard to defeat people like Marsha Blackburn. I take great offense to anyone blaming ME for getting these deplorables in office. I don’t deserve this. You are wrong!

Guilty much? I wasn't blaming you. In fact, it is our collective inattention as a nation that deserves the blame. Don't be so hard yourself Joyce!

I’ll tell you what. You go to a red state, attend political meetings, give your hard earned money, work phone banks, canvas’s neighbors, and hold up signs. Then listen to a butt sitter saying you deserve the MAGAT elected and THEN we will talk. I have nothing more to say to you except maybe you need to enroll in a sensitivity training course.

Wonne, the country does seem to be on a downward slide. I think my husband and I are too old to leave, but I'd definitely get 'outta this place if I were younger.

You have penned a good analysis of these very early polls in my opinion. And your caution against pinning much confidence on them is so true, based on past experiences. Here’s hoping that we are backing the strongest candidate available because we cannot afford a Trump or DeSantis presidency starting in January 2025.

I am always so confused at what his appeal is? I mean, are people really this racist and stupid!! he doesn't care about anybody but himself. He will even throw Ivanka under the bus. I also do not understand the moderate democrats who don't feel we deserve to have nice things, it is always ... "well who is going to pay for it"?

Too many people are this racist and stupid, unfortunately.

this is mean, and I know it doesn't resolve all of our problems, but Trump just needs to drop dead and I do mean that literally. We cannot take anything for granted that justice is going to prevail or that he won't become President again. Of course I am speaking that this happen naturally because he is not exactly in the best of health. And I know it doesn't stop the madness, but his people are only interested in him, they are not interested in Ron DeSantis or Tim Scott or anyone else.

Then he will become a martyr without the truth being seen in court. This would not be a good solution. He needs to be held accountable with a televised trial which Americans tune into to.

I find it interesting that David Muir and Lester Holt reported even polls. This is the news which sells. Upon seeing this, I thought, no way! Remember, these polls do not include young people who overwhelmingly support Democrats.

I can’t understand why the GOP didn’t dump trump, years ago. The surging support for him is as disgusting as he is. I live close to Mississippi and get their political ads It’s a lot of noise pollution but also unbelievable about what they say to get people to vote for them.

“I’ll keep your private information from landing in Joe Biden’s garage.”

“I’ll stop the woke liberals from Memphis crossing into Mississippi.”

“I saved your vote by stopping illegal voting.”

🤬

I see him as Pooties roomy!

They can't set a bail high enough, because his billionaire backers, the Hendrick's, Mellon's, Mercer's, Duffield's, Peterffy, Schwarzman and his lowly MAGATS will just see to it he stays out on the street.

They won't confiscate his passport; he has his own private [757] with capabilities to fly w/o refueling to the KKKremlin. They refuse to remand him to federal custody to prevent his fleeing!

Why, they're treating this Traitorous corrupt convict as if he were a President or something? lol.

The ghosts of Al Capone and John Gotti must be pissed!! The first died fishing in his pool in Florida and the other in jail.

"If wishes were fishes, we'd all swim in riches!" That's what's known as an ASSonance and fits TFG to a T as in rump!

Stop being nice and polite, like the MAGA crowd. We must speak directly to the daughters of these Republican voters, telling them their parents dont care if you've been SA'd or are sick from a medically unwanted pregnancy. They just want to be right, at your expense
