Bummer: Democrat Voters Might Stay Home On Election Day

That would be a real shame, eh?

Why Democratic voters might stay home on Election Day

Alarm is growing in Democratic circles that the massively unpopular President Trump might connive to keep himself in office past January even if he is voted out. Former Vice President Joe Biden, the party’s presumptive nominee, has warned repeatedly that Trump will steal the election. Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) on Sunday said he believes the president “plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold onto office.” Publications including The Atlantic and The Washington Post have carried stories speculating that Trump will usurp the election or reject its results. Trump himself fed the speculation last week by suggesting the election be delayed — a notion quickly squashed by Republican officeholders across the spectrum.

These warnings are rooted in Trump’s clear disregard for American democracy, or any rule that keeps him from getting what he wants. But what if all this doomsaying scares Biden’s voters away from the polls? Rick Henderson, editor-in-chief of Carolina Journal — and a friend of mine — raised the question Sunday: “‘Responsible’ people on both sides seeding doubt about the legitimacy of the election (and possible transfer of power) is nuts,” he wrote on Twitter. “If no one trusts the election to be fair, why would anyone want to vote and play a sucker’s game?”

Democrats have been worried that their voters won’t make it to the polls this fall, but those concerns are mostly rooted in a fear of overconfidence within the party, and GOP voter-suppression efforts. There hasn’t been much concern — publicly, at least — that voters will conclude American democracy is already dead and thus it’s not worth the effort of casting a ballot.

There’s lots more fear-mongering in the article, but, what this is really all about is setting the stage for when Biden loses, claiming that the election was fraudulent. They claimed it was Russia Russia Russia for the 2016 election, and could never prove it. They need Reasons as to why the hardcore Modern Socialist agenda is not really that popular across the country.

Really, though, you can see lots of non-crazy Democrats, the ones who aren’t the far left nuts, along with Independents who lean Democrat not bothering to vote this time. Lots of them. They’ll see the issues with Joe Biden, such as his mental deterioration and hard Progressive turn, and just stay home. Meaning that the down ballot votes will not go their way. They compare the Dem candidates agenda to Trump, and see people who want Crazy vs a guy who seems to be a jerk personally but gets things done in office. And understand that all politicians are jerks, most just hide it better. These people may not vote Trump, but, they won’t vote Dem, either. They’ll stay home.

There is already some reason to be concerned about Democratic turnout this year. Recent polls suggest that, when it comes to voter enthusiasm, Biden lags Trump in key battleground states. That could mean Democrats are less likely to vote in November. Or it could mean very little. Democratic voters may have to hold their noses at the ballot box, but they’ll still cast a vote for Biden. As CBS News’ Kabir Khanna observed, “an unenthusiastic vote … counts just the same as an enthusiastic one.” Indeed, it seems a fair number of likely Biden voters are settling for him not because they love him or his potential policies, but because they see him as a “safe” candidate in a time of great peril.

Who can get enthused by Biden? Will he continue to hide till election day? Will he debate? If all he gets is Hillary’s 2016 states, he loses. Is anything he’s doing expanding the votes to flip the Trump 2016 states?

    Ain’t no doubt about it.

    the massively unpopular President Trump might connive to keep himself in office because of the much more massively unpopular Gropin’ Joe <a href="Not a joke and not hyperbole – I’m hearing from people close to the situation that Biden’s cognitive decline is rapidly worsening and is becoming increasingly difficult to mask. The Democrats are going to have to make a decision soon.”>since his cognitive decline is rapidly worsening and is becoming increasingly difficult to mask.

    Trump has a lead of 48% to 43% in the swing states Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin which would put him back in the White House with an electoral college tally of 309.

    This is why we get all the class warfare agitprop from 1935 from Jeffery.

    I hate to pile on (no, I don’t), but a couple of things off Insty caught my eye.

    And a quote, “Why shouldn’t our culture just get worse and worse, if making it worse will only cause the people who worsen it to grow wealthier and wealthier?”.

    Put another way, progressives are [culture] war profiteers.

    No wonder our culture continues its slide into alienation, division, and coarseness. Middle America is under attack, which makes the Trump ascension entirely understandable. If progressives keep it up, they will deservedly fail much like Operation Barbarossa, exhausted, over-extended and suffering unremitting counter-attacks.

    So much for Jeffery and his working classes nonsense.

      Trump has been trying to bring the troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq and Syria since he was put in office.

      Trump announced he will bring 12,500 troops out of Germany and reassign them to Belgium and Italy while bringing 5500 of them home for good.

      Trump is to progressives what they have marched in the streets in favor of. NO MORE WARS. Trump has repeatedly resisted wars and more wars. The deep state is furious. It is cutting into their profits.

      The left have become war mongers because Trump is a peacenik.

      Our culture continues to slide because for 30 years we have let China destroy the fabric of this nations youth while we all kept a wary eye on Russia. China smiled and bowed and patted us on the backs and we grinned and said sure, have some more.

      Here are more jobs. Bring your children to our schools and teach them all about your wonderful culture.

      And they did.

      And it netted us a generation of brainwashed, indoctrinated, hate filled children who will one day grow up and be in charge. Snowflakes are the least of what these people are. They are blinded, hate filled communists that China has carefully honed to destroy America from within.

      These past few months we have gotten a taste and the COVID-19 was released on purpose by China and then allowed to travel the world before they even mentioned it.

      Why?

      They are currently battling 20 countries for property. They have claimed the South China Sea as their own forcing the USA to patrol the waters. Australia has now joined India and the USA and Japan. The Phillipines which grew to hate us under the current president is now building new bases for the US Navy in defiance to China.

      The paper tiger is no more. They can absorb a depression. The rest of the world cannot. Learn mandarin folks. China is on the prowl and Covid-19 was on purpose.

        Bull.

        The Reds are in worse shape than anybody. The trade war is hurting them terribly. The Birx Barf has hit them worse than the rest of the world. all this Trump epicenter is just propaganda. And, if Three Gorges goes (maybe even if it doesn’t), they’re crippled in terms of power.

        Trump has been trying to bring the troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq and Syria since he was put in office.

        No trying. He’s been doing it.

        And claiming the South China Sea isn’t having it or holding it.

        The Phillipines which grew to hate us under the current president

        It did? When did this happen? And how? And the US 7th Fleet has been patrolling that area for about 80 years.

        Sounds like another of Jeffery’s cartoon characters.

    I’m curious to see how many School Bond ballot initiatives just went from the “possibly passing” column to the “no way in hell are we paying for any more “Bond Initiatives” for teachers that don’t want to teach” column.

    I’d think the teacher’s union is looking at nationwide losses against them, the teachers, their school boards and the funding initiatives that they champion like they’ve never experienced in their lifetimes.

    I’m not voting for a can of paint for school districts that have been closed down for 6 months. Are you?

    • formwiz says:

      Nobody should. These clowns have been coasting on how much they can get away with for 50 years. Now they want to be paid for demanding schools stay closed to help the Demos with their phony plague.

      • dachs_dude says:

        True. In NJ they’re pushing for more remote learning. I’m ok with that as teachers are actually teaching, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay for renovating empty buildings that aren’t going to be used for the foreseeable future.
        Unless, unless….. The Dems KNOW that this is all a scam to get rid of Trump and on Nov 4th, 2020 if Trump is defeated, “the virus” worked and we can re-open, (under the Dems stifling rules, regs, Climate BS); if Trump wins, (most likely due to the Dems shenanigans during the last 2 years), The Dems and MSM will conclude that “the virus” didn’t work and that they’ll just use “China, China, China” or some other method to try to impeach Trump, (again).
        The best that can be said about that is that it keeps the Dems from doing other more destructive things.
