    I thought it was pretty boring last night all around. Whereas my opinion last time was that there was a very clear (unexpected!) winner, everyone sucked last night.

    It freaks me out when I think about how true this is. I've been waking from anxiety ridden nightmares about it all. Oh my god, if Trump is re-elected with a mandate....

    Two things that I think we can all forget easily b/c of the dread we all feel at another four years of this criminal monster: he won by a grand total of 75,000-ish votes across WI, MI & PA. And then also do not discount the House wave of 2018. Take those two things together and u can extrapolate with some mild confidence that voters are attempting to rebuke this animal that just baaaaaaaarely squeaked by Hillary. And we know Hillary was really unpopular too at that time. So considering all 4 top candidates will be less hated than Hillary was, I tend to calm myself down a bit when I think about these things. And it's not like Trump's gotten any more popular. He has insanely low popularity numbers. Record-breaking. I believe he would be the first president to win re-election w/the kind of numbers he has. Sure it can happen (part. when u factor in their voter suppression tactics), but it's not likely.

    And as I've said before, Bernie's entire strategy rests on turning out as much of the 100 million people who stayed home last time. So if he gets the nom & he is successful with this plan, it should be even easier to at least flip those 3 states listed. I'm not thumping my chest with confidence about all this, I just want people to remember the provable things we know so far & not give into the dread.

    ^ Agreed on not giving into dread. The Democrats need someone brave enough to stand up against Trump, and denounce everything that he's been doing in the strongest possible terms, in sustained & unrelenting campaigns for winnable areas in the key parts of those states. They can pull it off, it won't be easy, but there's a damn good chance.
