Even without the jail prospects (which are important) I think Trump would be a huge national security liability in that two month + period after he loses the election and before the inauguration of the next president. This possibility has only been lightly touched on in this thread and barely at all in the media. But if the polls show him losing by a lot, I think its going to become a huge issue as the election approaches. In normal times, with a non-brainwashed GOP, I would expect an impeachment/conviction or a 25th amendment enactment to snowball very quickly. And maybe that will happen, since the GOP won't have much else to lose at that point, but judging by the state of their loyalty, probably not.

I'm still waiting for him to declare a national emergency on voter fraud in order to delay the 2020 election if not prevent it from ever happening.

I don't know if 2008 is a good one to use for 2020. I can't see Ohio or Indiana going blue, for example, but Arizona could. North Carolina would be in play or lean Dem in a free/fair election - we'll see if they have one there. So would Georgia, for that matter - they won't be having one.

But anyway I think the likelihood of the 2008 map being the best basis for 2020 is pretty low, even if the total electoral vote expected value is closer to 2008 than any other recent election. (I don't think it is yet, but it could be.)

In other words, the way the parties are aligned and based on the Trump coalition and what states are in play, it's better to start from 2016.
Yeah sorry, I might not have read your post in context.. I just skipped to the end of the thread. My overall point was that 2020 could be a huge turnout surge (~60%+) with one candidate getting over 70 million votes. If that’s the case (which isn’t crazy given house dem candidates almost beat Trumps vote total in the midterms[!!]) you don’t even really have to go state by state. Republicans can’t realistically overcome a 5 point popular vote deficit even with their electoral college advantages. Of course there are reasons why that might be a bad way to look at 2020. Liberal apathy is one of the most powerful forces in American politics and the midterms could be an anomaly with presidential turnout being the standard 55% giving republicans a chance to get lucky again or even win the popular vote out right.

But if I had to bet I would say the dem in 2020 breaks Obama’s total vote count record from 2008 which would make it virtually impossible for Trump to overcome and win reelection.

It’s utterly amazing how brazenly these assclowns talk ‘will of the people’ when defending a president who lost the popular vote

I challenge anyone to provide a legitimate reason for Ivanka to be at the WH beyond the fact that she’s spawn of Trump’s orange seed. She does nothing and has no purpose

She’s curtailing Trumps worse excesses I believe. At least that’s what the NYT etc report every now and again.

That's a myth people were telling themselves to maintain their sanity.

She's exactly as deplorable as her father is. She's just smarter and more subtle about it. I'd argue that she's probably the most dangerous Trump in the family aside from her father because of that image.
