Trump is still Trump and that could be a problem for him in 2024

The same was said of him in 2016.

And lost him the election in 2020. Where do you feel he'll find the voters he needs to make up the difference in 2024? Which sector/demographic will they come from, and how will he appeal to them in 2024 that he wasn't able to in 2020?

As if anyone cares what the establishment thinks

More than 200 million do care.

6 ( +8 / -2 )

And lost him the election in 2020. 

Hmmm...

Trump lost in 2020. He lost badly.

He also oversaw the loss of the house in the midterms ( a much heavier defeat than Biden oversaw ) and eventually saw the Democrats take control of the senate.

Objectively speaking, he wasn’t good for the GOP in terms of elections after taking office.

Not a good option.

The "con" is over...even the MAGA-masses can see a scam when it goes on for over 2 years...

With exception of a few hard-core cult members, Trump is seen for what he is - an emotionally stunted, narcissistic, full-time golfer and former reality TV host...but what most defines him is "Loser"....

He lost the House in 2018, lost the WH and Senate in 2020, and oversaw a humiliating defeat for his hand-picked MAGA candidates in 2022...

Repubs don't like losers...

Even MAGA-world is waking up to the fact that Trump only hangs around because of his ego and his determination to scam and fleece his flock of as much of their money as he can...

The Ultra MAGA King has no clothes...

Even MAGA-world is waking up to the fact that Trump only hangs around because of his ego and his determination to scam and fleece his flock of as much of their money as he can...

What will be entertaining will be watching his MAGA sycophants being tied to him, having made MAGA their identity.

Notice how some of them here are starting to not want to even address the fact that they still believe the election was stolen from Trump in 2020?

The Republicans also use other people's money. They don't have some secret ATM. Trump increased the National Debt by $7 trillion.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Trump has $75 million from his failed previous election. It is not clear if he can the money for a new campaign.

Objectively speaking, he wasn’t good for the GOP in terms of elections after taking office. 

I disagree

So the Republicans losing the house in 2018 and losing the presidency and control of the senate in 2020 was good?

I hate to see what your definition of failure is.

So the Republicans losing the house in 2018 and losing the presidency and control of the senate in 2020 was good?

No, but the Republicans did overall not bad in Trump and Mitch appointing about 234 lower circuit court judges appointed, and out of that as you already know 3 of them made it to The Supreme Court.

Loves Mitch today....yesterday called him a RINO loser...flip one day, flip the next....

Also the other 174 judges were unanimously confirmed for the US Court of Appeals and 54 judges assumed positions with the US District Courts. so in that sense he does get credit, a lot of it in fact.

More Mitch love....I guess he agrees with Mitch that "the President bears the entire responsibility for the Jan 6th attack".....

I hate to see what your definition of failure is.

Losing the ability to use other people’s money which the Dems just lost that privilege today. Thank God, couldn’t happen sooner.

Failure is what one top REPUB strategist called the "Red Wave".....aka the "Red Disaster"....

Three billionaires have dropped former President Donald Trump in two days.

*Ronald Lauder, the heir to the Estée Lauder fortune.

*Republican superdonor Stephen Schwarzman.

*Citadel's Ken Griffin.

They will back DeSantis.

Yes, and yes!

More Mitch love....I guess he agrees with Mitch that "the President bears the entire responsibility for the Jan 6th attack".....

He may think that, I have a dodge opinion.

Winning is obtaining the House, which we did, I’m good, I’m ecstatic!

The Republicans also use other people's money.

No, they don’t use income redistribution or hand out entitlements massively, that’s the reason why they won the House to stop the Dems spending spree.

Trump has $75 million from his failed previous election. It is not clear if he can the money for a new campaign

If he ends up being the nominee, he can. Let’s wait and see

Three billionaires have dropped former President Donald Trump in two days.

That’s ok, there are many billionaires in the US, not just them.

They will back DeSantis.

Good for them, that is if DeSantis even runs.

Personally, I would minimize what kind of information I disclose here, but to each his own.

I will let it be known that Trump being Trump is his and the Republican Party's greatest asset.

Trump lost in 2020. He lost badly. 

Hmmm…

He also oversaw the loss of the house in the midterms

And now got the House

( a much heavier defeat than Biden oversaw ) and eventually saw the Democrats take control of the senate. *

Not entirely

Objectively speaking, he wasn’t good for the GOP in terms of elections after taking office. 

I disagree.

Not a good option.

Trump or DeSantis 2024 the two strongest options.

It would be cool if someone compiled a resource accessible to all to see what kind of people voted for a candidate.

Many public record resources are available, all compliant with Japan's protection of personal information laws.

Easy to find many registered voters.

https://voterrecords.com

Or, if someone owns property

https://officialrecords.broward.org/AcclaimWeb

Just plug in the name, and the information is free and available to all.

If people are willing to disclose their names here, then they consent to having a public records search performed.

Makes sense. We live in a digital world.

Why are so many of the GOP top brass opposed to Don Conleone

As if anyone cares what the establishment thinks

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

More than 200 million do care.

So half of that don’t care and that’s not including illegals

Trump is still Trump and that could be a problem for him in 2024

The same was said of him in 2016.

It's great to be a US registered voter, and get to contribute to making America great as in Trump's first term.

USA!

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

And lost him the election in 2020.

Hmmm...

Where do you feel he'll find the voters he needs to make up the difference in 2024?

In America

Which sector/demographic will they come from,

The poor and middle class

and how will he appeal to them in 2024 that he wasn't able to in 2020?

He did very well, but....
