As bad poll numbers roll on for Trump. I got to thinking, things could get even worse for him. And I lean toward thinking they will.

A couple of things to keep in mind.

If the bounty story starts to unravel and leaks come out that make this much worse. I can see an already eroded military/vet and senior voter group start to weaken further.

Next. I still see no real progress on a second stimulus even as cases are rising. If there is little or no help to small businesses and no extension of federal unemployment benefits, AND schools are not fully open. Things will get very very ugly. What we’ve been through will seem like a breeze.

In the fall you will start to see people losing their homes and apartments if there is no extension of benefits. Just as we get into election time.

Even if a package comes through but a large amount of states with huge populations are stuck at phase 1, it will still be very bad news for Trump.

And being somewhat conservative in my calculations. It’s looking like we will see 200,000 deaths hit around mid October. That will be a striking Number that will drive home just how horrible Trump has fucked everything up.

In both the bounty and the COVID, I don’t see either getting better from here on out for quite some time. I don’t see how there would be an uptick in any way on the horizon for Trump. And most signs point to further decline.

this is not a good thing.

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A spike in gun violence has left over 100 people wounded or killed in dozens of shootings across New York City over the past nine days, police said Sunday.

There have been 112 victims in 83 shootings over a nine-day period ending Saturday, according to police. Most of those shot were expected to survive, but several people have died and others suffered serious or critical injuries.

The NYPD on Sunday released this info detailing the nine-day stretch of shootings.
Friday, 6/19 - 8 shooting incidents with 9 victims.
Saturday, 6/20 -18 shooting incidents with 24 victims.
Sunday, 6/21 - 2 shooting incidents with 5 victims.
Monday, 6/22 - 11 shooting incidents with 17 victims.
Tuesday, 6/23 - 10 shooting incidents with 10 victims.
Wednesday, 6/24 - 3 shooting incidents with 5 victims.
Thursday, 6/25 - 5 shooting incidents with 8 victims.
Friday, 06/26 - 9 incidents with 10 victims.
Saturday, 06/27 - 17 incidents with 24 victims.

The NYPD said there have been 503 shooting incidents with 605 victims this year as of Saturday.

Amid calls to defund the police, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said last week that the city's homicide rate had hit a 5-year high and that the criminal justice system was "imploding." The number of people shot has risen 42 percent compared to last year.

Brooklyn community advocate Tony Herbert told 1010 WINS he's anguished over the rise in violence.

"It has just been ridiculous how it has taken place, because we saw a serious decline over a five year period and we have working relationships to work with our police department with their community policing," he said. "Now look at what we’re faced with. I have not seen anything like this in my entire life living here in New York."

It’s going to get ugly.

Can’t wait to see the segments on Foxnews on how these soldiers had it coming. Or they suck cause they died.

You would think a story like this would end Trump. But nothing can stop him. Just look at 2020

Orders strike on Iran general, forcing retaliation and injuries to our troops in Iraq

Impeachment and cowardice of GOP

Fucking up, and continuing to fuck up a pandemic. Forcing the crash of the economy and any attempt at a recovery

Igniting more racial tensions

And now this

So he's either covering up or he's unfit or both, and we all knew that.
Pretty much sums it up. And it's impossible to say which option would be worse.

(Hell, given his complete inability to pay attention to things and whatnot, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if, after Trump leaves office, we find out that nobody ever gave him the nuclear codes, because they knew full well he couldn't be trusted to know them or keep them to himself.)

They just covered this topic on "Last Week Tonight".

I agree with the analysis of your post. Americans are demanding somebody step up and actually DO something, they want to know there's someone in charge taking care of things and trying to help the country recover. And they sure as hell aren't seeing that with Trump.

So yeah. Let the anger and frustration towards him continue to rise. Let him and his base start running scared. Let the GOP see the writing on the wall and leave him to float alone while they try to distance themselves (and let them realize that that method won't work when we come for them, too, for not doing more to stop and remove him altogether). He, and the GOP, deserve every single last bit of it.

It’s chaos. I really think the best part is the false claim that the polls were so wrong in 2016. these people write off all the polls and just think Trump will pull it out of his ass again. And in the Dem side, if you post good poll numbers for Biden, half the comments are “ignore the polls, vote, and fight til the end”.
So I’m glad that misconception of the2016 polling is out there .

Also, I know some may say I’m crazy. But I’m glad that Trump didn’t get convicted in the Senate.
Imagine if in the winter, trump left, Pence assumed office. I do think that Biden or another Dem would certainly have a more difficult time against a run of the mill Republican, with an angry base behind them.
like I said before. We didn’t put up with 3.5 years of utter madness and destruction of our government, constitution, and standing on the world stage just to have Pence or some other dumbshit, go the next four, certainly with a rep Senate, playing by the new rule book that Trump normalized. No way.

The best part is. By 2024, TX and GA will almost certainly be blue, which means game over for the red menace.

Which poses an interesting question. Reps can’t win the popular vote anymore. What happens, say in 2028, when they can’t win the Electoral College? Does the party collapse? Do you think the two parties finally break into 4? I really don’t know what to think.

Strange how these numbers mirror many of the poll numbers we’re seeing.

It's really starting to feel like the John McCain campaign circa late September, a couple of weeks after Lehman Brothers went down. The problems here though are that (a) there is a lot more time left to correct and (b) Trump is the devil.

Yep, so it looks like "race war" is what Trump landed on when he threw a dart at the board of what his campaign strategy should be.

He retweeted this one:

p.s. - This one makes me kinda laugh cause the li'l guy with the automatic weapon looks like Nathan Lane.

welcome to day two of the news cycle caring 100x more about what the president tweeted during his morning shit instead of about russians literally paying terrorists to murder american soldiers with the president's approval.

Usually the case no doubt. But getting major coverage now. And will only grow as the lies get exposed. This is one that the Dems could and should drag out as long as possible.

This happened Friday night, so today is the first time that reporters can actually hit repub members of Congress and Senate about their feelings on it. That will start a whole new cycle of shit of Rep members dodging or making excuses.

Trumpsters have gone totally mental over Roberts - they hate him more than the 4 liberal justices combined.

Some new polls starting to come in today.

National - Biden +8

GA - Biden +4

One of the most interesting is the Presidential Approval from Rasmussen. This is a pollster that is skewed pretty republican. Over the last month they have had Trump's Disapproval somewhere between +4 and +8. While pretty much every other pollster has it somewhere between +13 to +20.

Today's Rasmussen poll was done from 6/24-6/28 and has it at +13.
Whether this is just a one off outlier for them, or an actual shift will be interesting to see.

The Iranian General and militia(s) killed one service member and we bomb him off the earth.

Russia pays bounties to kill our troops, we were aware of it and we do nothing ?

No wonder Iran is pissed
