Donald Trump will be gone

Please don’t take this the wrong way. Even if Biden wins in an absolute landslide tomorrow, all of Trump’s accomplishments – particularly THREE Supreme Court justices – will have been well worth it all. And as I said above, no other candidate besides Trump could have won in 2016. So in a sense, Donald Trump saved America, at least for the time being. Had Hillary won, we’d have been so far down the rabbit hole there would have been no peeking out. However, with all of Trump’s greatness comes his many weaknesses as well. He’s thin-skinned, obstinate, abrasive, wildly egotistical, and completely incapable of the emotional intelligence it takes to win over significant numbers of voters not already in his camp. If he loses tomorrow, it’s completely on him. Given the leftist insanity that’s taken place this year alone, Republicans should have been able to run a lampshade against someone like Joe Biden and still won handily. The fact that this race is even close is infuriating, and make no mistake, it’s mostly Donald Trump’s fault. If he loses, we should thank him for his service, keep his key policies (neocons won’t like this, but Trump’s policies WORKED), wish him a healthy and restful retirement, and move on.

Even if the president manages to eke out a victory tomorrow and McConnell holds onto his gavel by the skin of his teeth, most political pundits are certain that the GOP would lose the Senate in 2022. The only Democratic seats with even the slightest chance of being picked off are in Nevada and New Hampshire. On the other side, Richard Burr (North Carolina), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Ron Johnson (Wisconsin), Rob Portman (Ohio), Marco Rubio (Florida) and Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania) all are likely to face tough reelection races. It doesn’t seem fair, but the sad reality is the GOP doesn’t face an even remotely manageable Senate landscape until 2024. A Democrat in the White House, however, would give Republicans a better shot at holding what they have and biding their time until 2024. Finally, speaking of 2024 …
