Gallop says Trump re-elections numbers similar to those of Obama and Clinton.


http://news.gallup.com/poll/233000/trump-elect-figures-similar-obama-clinton.aspx?utm_source=alert&utm_medium=email&utm_content=morelink&utm_campaign=syndication

Important to note that approval ratings for those two were higher, but still, the point remains that anyone who thinks Trump has no chance to get re-elected is entirely delusional.

Yep - I mean the Democrats don't even have a candidate they seem to be pushing at this point, so we have no idea who they plan on running against him.  Incumbents are always difficult to beat.

Also, it's kinda funny that Giuliani went on national television and basically said that Trump's been lying about the hush money payment this whole time.

Itís a perfect storm of so-bad-itís-good qualities, from Blankenshipís unparalleled wooden delivery and the weird cuts after every line he says, to his use of ďChina peopleĒ and ďWest Virginia peopleĒ to the awkward use of the twin kids.

Loser Donald in: The Lyin' King.
Do you have any predictions/preferences for Person of the Year this time around?
Richard Mueller and Carmela Cruz come to mind.

In hindsight, this was a very notable signal that his worldview had warped to the point he would abandon us for the embrace of Letterboxd.

Perhaps. I think more than anything it demonstrates an American-centric view on global politics. That's more symptomatic of the country in general though.

That post is of a far lower caliber of intelligence than I've come to expect from Quora. No point in replying to it.

Jesus, I thought the question was dumb enough but that answer could've been ripped from r/TheDonald.

Wow, Trump just managed to nominate someone who:

- Drafted the Starr Report and supported Bill Clinton's impeachment,
- Investigated Vince Foster's death, AND
- Worked on the Bush campaign during the Florida recount.

Calling it right now. Donald Trump is the ultimate troll. I have no hope of equaling this man, no matter how many Dom Cobbs I manage to piss off.

I still think that the ultimate troll move would have been appointing Cohen (even if he would never have gotten confirmed). However, this is pretty good too.

That post is of a far lower caliber of intelligence than I've come to expect from Quora. No point in replying to it.

I have seen a bunch of answers of this kind for quite a while. Here's another recent example: https://www.quora.com/How-is-it-that-with-Trumps-cabinet-picks-resigning-all-the-time-over-scandals-that-his-supporters-still-claim-hes-draining-the-swamp/answer/Bryan-Shoemaker-4 I've even bookmarked some of the least coherent ones to check out later.

The difference is, they were usually collapsed, or close to it. This may be the first one of this kind with 800+ upvotes. Even the conservative Quorans with 10k+ followers, (which basically lets you write any rubbish and still get at least a few dozen guaranteed upvotes) don't always manage that.

Like, you've probably all seen Jon Davis there by now, who is basically the ultimate voice of US military there (though his progressive mirror Sophia Di Tricht is a close second), gaining many thousands followers in that manner before branching into other areas, like anime, or being a "supporter of Trump supporters". Even with his current 65k followers, though, he still only managed 65 upvotes for this equivalency between Roy Moore and Doug Jones: https://www.quora.com/What-do-pro-Trump-voters-think-of-Doug-Jones-Do-you-think-his-policy-positions-are-so-bad-for-Alabama-that-he%E2%80%99d-be-a-worse-choice-than-Roy-Moore-Jones-won-several-counties-that-went-for-Trump-in-2016/answer/Jon-Davis-10

I used to follow Davis, albeit just to hear the other perspective. Had to stop that after a while. He wrote some answer about how Democrats have no respect for "southern culture," and that the states should be allowed to ban gay marriage if they want. He's one of those closet authoritarians who think that "state's rights" means the right of the state to take away your freedoms.

He'd probably just say that Obama did the same thing or something worse and then draw an inept comparison between two completely different scenarios.
