So I'm not much into politics, I only really see what I see on reddit and here. But from what it looks like, Bernie is down and out, and his supporters are mad and completely against Biden (could just be a vocal minority). With that said, it seems dems are split, with some voting for Bernie and others just going independent. So without a united front, it seems like Trump won't have much competition. Is that the case?

it's pretty much a sure thing with Biden as his opponent. i will be surprised if Biden lasts as the nominee until election day. Burisma is gonna bury him. him not doing jack shit for the American people when he was VP of Obama is gonna bury him.

Trump is going to be able to run FROM THE LEFT against old Big Banks Joe. Trump is actually suspending evictions and foreclosures during this crisis, while Obama/Biden let that shit happen and let millions of people get evicted and lose their houses all while bailing out the banks in '08. maybe Dems should have actually been on the side of "the common people" as they like to tell everyone.

amazingly, Trump will be able to run as the anti establishment candidate, even though he is the POTUS. solely because of the Dem's pick of Biden.

The vast majority of people have views that will be influenced by a lot of what happens between now and election day. Social media, Reddit and Twitter in particular, tends to highlight the extremists, a majority of that vocal crowd won't be swayed by anything, so their views shouldn't be taken as an accurate reflection of the country. Bernie supporters are learning this lesson the hard way, same way Hillary supporters (should have) learned it in 2016.

Corona panic will be over by November and Trump will claim victory over the virus. Democrats might try some new dirty trick as usual, but otherwise seems like a landslide for Trump.

I think he will win, I think the dems blaming Trump for "not acting quickly enough" is going to backfire to.

Anecdotal but I've been seeing tons of people on my facebook who are normally apolitical questioning if this was worth shutting everything down for.

It's highly likely. Most reasonable people don't blame Trump for Covid-19, and they'll be willing to give some (read: a small amount) on the economy. Plus, incumbency is very powerful. Plus, poor old Biden is going to mangle his fucking thoughts and basically shit through his mouth, and I suspect that'll give people pause about changing leadership mid-crisis.

That's the problem, right? If he shuts it down and there aren't too many casualties he actually did a good job, but people might say he overreacted. If he doesn't shut it down and a lot of people die, well...

Against Joe "you know the thing" Biden? Probably yes.

Against Bernie? 50/50 ish , leaning towards not.

As it stands now, it's Trump's election to lose. Whether or not he does well at handling the current pandemic will also be a major factor. That's one hell of a monkey wrench that got thrown into the ring.

we're all living in the most uncertain time-period of our lives but if I was a betting man I'd say no.

I don't know, but the debates between Trump and Biden are going to be insane.

Trump wipes the floor with Biden.

Bernie vs Trump would be less even, since there might be a lot of Americans who say "Give me $10,000 a month now" to which Bernie would say "Yes".

It's a little early to say. With the massive socialized bailouts and stock market crash, the market is back where it started and America has doubled the deficit in 4 years.

I don't think so. Biden was coherent at the debate with Bernie Sanders. It would be foolish to underestimate him.

there are a lot of factors in the air. there already were before this whole pandemic. now having to deal with this whole thing makes the Mueller Report feel like 10,000 years ago. there is really no where to tell what will happen.

Trump has been very good to his base, tho, which is going to factor in heavily. he delivered on the SC and many other GOP friendly policies. his strategy of calling the Dem's bluff works time and time again. Obama was terrible to his base. he got very little done that the left could be happy about other than media optics, which has come to supplant all other qualities in US elections. for this reason alone Trump will win. he knows the media game.

Biden is a loser. first of all he cannot perform. the evidence of that is vast. he is not inspiring. he is not funny. even people that hate Trump think he is hilarious. America loves a class clown. Biden has no stamina. he is too old for this shit. Trump can still drone on and on for over an hour without taking a sip of water. he will take a 15 minute side trip to talk about wrestlers during his first post-impeachment speech. he's a guy you want to have a burger with. he is basically the president from the arcade game Bad Dudes.

He has sounded better the last couple of debates, but I think he’s barely hanging on to appear lucid. Trump’ll knock him off message and get under his skin, and that’s when I’m betting the gaffes will fly. I mean, wasn’t it just a week ago that Biden had the blowout with the union worker?

I don't understand why he is more coherent all of a sudden. That's what's got me a little on edge. I don't like being caught off guard and that was definitely out of left field. A miracle of health or some special drug the government keeps for itself. Bah. My mind races trying to figure it out. Wrong about the dementia. That I'm fairly certain about. Will be very upset if he becomes stupid again with Trump. I mean, I hope he does so that he loses, but then it's back to wondering why and just what the hell is going on with Biden. It's frustrating.

I actually think that fight with the union worker helped him. Maybe not with unions, but I certainly had more respect for Biden afterwards. He stood up for himself. He lost. But he gets credit for not being a pussy. I mean, just look at that dude's beard.

I didn't like his chances before, but now that he has bungled the response to the COVID mess I like them even less.
He's responded better than Canada or any European countries.

What do you want, him to order the military to shoot anyone coofing outside and burn their bodies like China did?

I think he scared a lot of republican moderates with his handling of the kung flu, and they are missing Obama right now

Who knows, remember when McCain ran against Obama he was heavily made fun of for possibly suffering dementia. He had moments where he seemed aloof and other times he seemed lucid.

I remember this because I specifically remember late night talk shows having sketches about McCain's aloof behavior during the debates.

Maybe borrowed some of Trump’s stimulants

I think his chances at the moment are the worst they have been throughout his whole term. And, depending on how bad the economy gets it will be pegged on him.

If we rebound and if the Dems do a bad job of proving how they can do better, then he has a high chance of re-election.

McCain was eventually diagnosed with brain cancer and died. He ruined any credibility of the theory that the government has a secret cure for cancer. Much to this dismay of those who believed it. Haha.

But Biden? I have no idea. He was supposed to be demented and then all of a sudden he's better. I'm a man of science. I don't like the idea of Jesus interfering in our elections.

Biden did better because he wasn't on stage with 8 other people, and he was being handed softball questions

No. He's been on stage with just himself and starts talking to walls and shit among other things. We need a better explanation. Someone give me a differential.

Most likely. Biden is even worse policy-wise than Trump, the only new thing he'll bring to the White House is Alzheimer's.

The point I was trying to make was despite all the stuff McCain was going through he still had moments of lucidity. So it shouldn't be that surprising that joe has them every now and then.
🤷‍♀️ 🤷‍♀️

Biden's medical history has been pretty well documented, he had a double aneurysm in his brain over 30 years ago. One on each side where they literally sawed the top of his skull open for brain surgery.
