Trump only lost by a few percent, so any one improvement could have won him the election. Every action had a reaction and a competitive narrative; we are guesstimating whether he gained or lost in balance on each one. Death by a thousand cuts.
Coronavirus, never went away, mixed messaging, attacking Fauci whether correct or not; shifting on Fauci, was nothing but a problem for Trump. Trump said how great he was, and then how terrible he was, on and on. If you liked Fauci and wanted him to succeed that may have hurt Trump. If you didn’t like Fauci you could be upset at Trump that he was in charge, or didn’t get fired. Exact same with Dr. Birks.
One could assume Trump was lost or confused on coronavirus, which the Dems seized on as their key narrative in daily talking points they have properly synchronized, to repeat across the media constantly, very deeply, with social media extremes simultaneously.
Biden just buried Trump on it, and was never held to account for the fact he wanted to leave the border open when Trump closed it, (because Biden and his family took millions from China in illegal deals); implied Trump was being racist.
Many of Trump’s cohorts going to jail eventually adds up to a corrupt regime; fish rots from the head. If you tie that to his history of bankruptcies and scamming charities, leaves one with an impression he isn’t making things great again.
Less military support than he thought. They don’t blog, so you don’t know what they think. Their families and friends go with them. They liked McCain and their Hispanic bunker buddies. Or they might have feared Trump’s extreme rhetoric puts them at physical risk in war.
US demographics have been shifting rapidly; swing states have more Hispanic immigrants who he’s continuously verbally abusing to build his base; but his base was not at risk; needed to be expanded to swing voters in swing states; those people all have Hispanic friends or family or coworkers (who, incidentally, are not rapists like Trump said.)
Teachers are almost all liberals; the more years they push out their leftist propaganda the more it seeps in to youthful society, who end up voting liberal, more than warranted or expected.
Social media outlets shut down pro Trump rhetoric and expanded liberal rhetoric on purpose, which should be illegal.
The main media is the same as teachers and social media, almost all liberals pushing out primarily false narratives; the people delivering the news have no concern for the actual truth on average.
Some people who voted for Trump in 2006 merely hated Hillary, more than they hated Biden in 2000, giving Trump a chance to be nice and retain a larger electorate on his side, but he failed in that department.
The pro-Trump media and political hacks timed the Hunter Biden laptop/crime story perfectly it seemed, but underestimated the ability of the liberal press and crooked social media to crush and hide such an enormous situation; or bury it with tons of other confusing press and propaganda. Too much noise in the system to highlight any one item, even though this deserved a huge spotlight. Most people aren’t watching Fox News, unless they were already Trump supporters, so to the extent they were the only holder of the truth in this case not enough voters knew about it.
So, timing is everything; they should have blasted the world earlier and more with the facts of corrupt Joe Biden and his corrupt family. The horrible crimes of Biden make Trump’s crimes look like less of a big deal.
Biden is a shill and blank slate. We would assume that would be good for Trump, but his handlers and the popular media burned the clock and just Biden cute speeches he was mostly able to recite verbatim. They buried his many extreme gaffs, except for Fox, who se viewers already didn’t care for Biden, so it apparently had no material effect.
Incessant lying; again, people waiting for change and never seeing it. Trump still implies there is a great wall to keep out Mexican rapists and rug dealers (drugs mostly come by boats, tunnels, and airplanes. The overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants are hard workers who don’t break other laws, and are certainly not rapists). Trump keeps saying the election is rigged and hiring people to repeat it, but with no evidence.
The ‘good’ news is Biden is just a scammer from corrupt Delaware. So to the extent he is conscious, he isn’t actually a communist, and doesn’t actually like antifa or rioting, or green new deal, or throwing away money. He is just a lazy, corrupt, racist, rich, old, white boy, like many of Delaware’s elite, who likes money and fame, and goes with the flow to achieve it. He is lucky he isn’t in jail, and doesn’t lose security clearance.
From Nathan Click:
“Trump publicly asked Russian tyrant, Vladimir Putin, to undermine our current president by providing “dirt” to help him with his 2024 campaign.
Trump told thousands of MAGA minions that he will pardon January 6th insurrectionists if he is re-elected president.
Trump said that then-Vice President Mike Pence should have “overturned the election.”
The New York Times broke a story that Trump wanted Rudy Guiliani to ask the military to seize voting machines after Election Day showed Trump losing to Joe Biden by 7 million votes.
The Washington Post broke a story that Trump’s allies wanted to seize spy data from the National Security Administration in a desperate attempt to prove foreign interference in a stolen election.”
Biden 2006: “I do not view abortion as a choice and a right, I think it’s always a tragedy. I think it should be rare and safe. I think we should be focusing on how to limit the number of abortions.”
Here’s my promise to you: If I’m elected president, I will always choose to unite rather than divide.
I’ll take responsibility instead of blaming others.
I’ll never forget that the job isn’t about me — it’s about you.”
