    Maybe you're just grossly out of touch.

    Nothing in that article leads me to believe that a Reagan-esque landslide is possible. Note I’m not saying Trump can’t win or even that he can’t win by somewhat more than 2016. But he’s not going to win by anything close to even 1984 let alone by 30% or with the Democrat getting 30% or whatever the OP meant in the first post. It’s just not going to happen.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    What do you see as the greatest weakness, electorially, of the Democratic party?
    If Trump wins, it won't be with a landslide victory.

    Anyway, if Trump wins, the question will be moot.

    Itís really unlikely that anything approaching 1984 happens either. Right or wrong, there empirically is a very large percentage of Americans who do not see things the way you describe above. Thatís just empirically true. Federal races have never been so polarized.
    If it happens what do you do?

    Do you think that the woke ajenda will win the hearts and minds of the working classes? Or will it put them off like it did in the UK?

    The problem with your question is the “if it happens” preamble. A world where something like that happens means circumstances similar to what made Doug Jones win by a sliver in deep red Alabama in 2017. There just isn’t a world without some kind of massive outside shock like that where Democrats (or Trump) lose by that much. Imagining a world like that just doesn’t make sense because it definitively isn’t the one we are living in.

    While I do like a good hypothetical scenario, I generally prefer that that it hews to a version of reality that's middlingly similar to our own.
