He barely won before (77,000 votes over 3 states), given he has not expanded his base, but lost some of those that voted for him, combined with the fact that the Dems stayed home in 2016, but not since.... To win the POTUS election you need to turn out your base (he will do that), keep the other guy from turning out its base (in spite of voter suppression, every race since 2016 has had substantial Democratic turnout, unlike 2016) and win the independents (which his support here has waned). He has his base, but its not likely enough. it is indeed a stretch (not impossible, but improbable) to think he is coming back.

    OTH, Russia has been invited to interfere in our election....so, perhaps he will simply do what he is so good at: cheat to win.
    Have you taken a look at the Democrat/Socialist field? Those clowns are running against a great economy with promises of tax hikes and government control. Lotís of luck.

    Unemployment Rate 4.7% January 2017 vs. 3.6% today

    Employed 152.2 million January 2017 to 157.9 million today so 6 million job growth from 2008 to 2017(146 million to 152 million) is celebrated but 6.7 million growth I the last two years isn't!! LOL

    U-6 in January 2017 9.3% vs 6.9% today? Wow!! 2.4% better U-6 obviously meaningless to you

    Part time for economic reasons, 5.7 million January 2017 vs. 4.2 million today? Looks to me that incredible job growth you claim was boosted by part time jobs

    African American unemployment 8.0% vs. 6.0% today? That explains the surge in support from African Americans for Trump
    Didnít Obama have to contend with significant job loss and general economic downturn due to the recession? So basically, this administration has been able to not reverse all of the positive trends but hasnít been able to reign in spending, which is skyrocketing? I think thatís much less impressive than you seem to.

    Is that just a 1984 thing now? Republicans have never wanted to spend less. Expansion of executive power? Yes, very conservative. Challenging checks and balances? The GOP always hated those.

    It's kind of a stupid, old left wing tactic, isn't it? I mean, don't try to convince us that you would have given a crap about a letter from thousands that said Obama's Iran deal was a danger to our country and the entire world. Or that Eric Holder should resign over "Fast & Furious". Good God.

    Yes, he signed a massive stimulus program for shovel ready jobs in February 2009 that saw job losses equal 4 million in 2009 and only recover 1 million in 2010. He didn't understand the private sector nor do most liberalism

    Like far too many you buy what the left tells you, spending isn't skyrocketing, interest expenses and entitlement spending, none of which are under Trump control have caused the increase in the deficit. Think the American people who are keeping more of what they earn give a damn? Quite a difference between this and what Obama created. Obama's debt was due to loss of revenue and massive gov't spending. Trump's deficit is due to interest expense and entitlement growth.

    The Iran deal that was put together in conjunction with members of the P5+ including RUSSIA btw, was BRILLIANT. And, Trump ****ed it all up. Give it up already with the stupid "fast and furious" rhetoric, it's old and it was a nothingburger. Get over it, it's tiresome, redundant and nobody gives a damn.

    No, the next election, like the last one, will most likely express a count of the desires of a few million less Caucasian, mid-western Trump supporters, nothing else. When people point out to conservatives that the elections are rendered anti-democratic in the American system and only reflect the will of the wealthy, we are reminded by them that this is a republic, not a democracy, as if that makes it OK. The word "republic", you see, is a politically correct way of saying "kleptocracy". Like the robber barons of the late nineteenth century, modern conservatives still believe that a greater "progress" exists when the wealthy are coddled and the poor kept hungry and voiceless.

    Over my lifetime, I have come to clearly understand the subtext of the American political vernacular. The Senate, the electoral college and pretty much every aspect of the American political structure is a dog and pony show for the poor wrapped in various layers of protection for the established, wealthy, white ruling class. It's as plain as the chimp in the white house who will win again despite getting MANY fewer votes. Therefore, to imply that the election will give "the people" what they want is a deliberate lie. To the contrary, the purpose of the election is to lend credibility to a pre-determined, miscarriage of democracy and justice.

    If you want to talk about conniptions, let some real democracy happen and the cons will declare the nation forfeit to the common rabble.

    Actually, the facts don't bear this out.... I've just updated this chart to take into account the latest figures and projections from the FY21 Budget released earlier this week. Notice the red (Outlays) and black (Receipts) bars for the Obama II and Trump terms... you'll see average spending as a percentage of GDP increased by 0.34 (=20.85-20.51) while average receipts as a percentage of GDP decreased by 1.07 (=16.48-17.55):

    Give me valid reasons to vote FOR a Democrat because all I see from you is anti Trump rhetoric and baseless charges. You willing to risk the gains made in the last three years with a radical Democrat in the WH?

    Your problem is lack of context totally ignoring the line items in the budget that caused the deficits to rise, why is that? Why do you think Trump has a 56% approval rating on the economy?

    Do you have any idea what line items made up the debt you are posting? Oh by the way, much of your Trump numbers are PROJECTED not actual but I do suggest you study the following and learn about context

    The primary reason is because every single republican in Congress are lying right under the boot of Trump. They fear him and let me tell you, the U.S. Congress should NEVER fear an authoritarian Executive. They are ONE-THIRD of the power of government, or they used to be before those yellow-liver traitors gave their power away in one fell swoop, to their master. We don't need more traitors, we need someone to save us from them and the only ones that can do it on election day are Democrats.

    You see gains in the past three years and all I've seen are favors made for Trump and his rich friends. Our EPA is torn to pieces, our infrastructure will never be repaired, Trump wants to make cuts to Medicare and S.S., and people like you think this is a good thing? Give me a break. He has to go.
