    For those people who are likely to vote for Trump in 2020, I’m interested to understand your thinking.

    Is it:

    1. I’m a Republican. I vote for the Republican nominee.

    2. I couldn’t vote for any of the Democratic primary candidates.

    3. I believe in Trump.

    If it’s 3, what research do you do? Trump ran his 2016 campaign on a number of promises and issues. Do you see those as having been fulfilled? I’m not being snarky but are you genuinely fed up with all the winning? Are you bothered that there is no wall (as of today)? And that there’s no plan in which Mexico will be paying for it? Apparently the stock market is at almost exactly the level it was when Trump took office. Do you think America is now great again? How so? In what ways? Trump sold himself as an amazing deal-maker. What deals has he made?

    Are you worried about Trump’s style? Are you worried about whether he’s a racist / white supremacist? If you’re religious, do you worry that he’s a pretty big sinner? Do you think he’s a stable genius? Do you think he’s the least racist person you’ve ever met?

    Is it all about the Supreme Court (and lower courts)? He’s undoubtedly scored big victories there.

    There have been talks with North Korea — but no deal yet. (But nor has there been a war.)

    What is it that really sells him to you? And how comfortable with your decision are you? Will you vote for him enthusiastically? Or through gritted teeth?

    Didn't vote for him the first time (nor Hillary). If the democratic party goes full on socialist, GND, blow up the federal budget then I won't vote for their candidate either. If the tribalism and the polarization don't tone down then I'll just keep writing in whoever leads the Yankees in homeruns.

    Pretty sure the current administration has shown that we don't need to wait until a democrat possibly wins in 2020 to blow up the federal budget.

    Right, because historically raising taxes has been just as difficult for our federal government as it is when it comes time to cut social welfare, spending, or revamp SS and Medicare. I mean how hard would it really be to get a **** ton more people off the government tit when we run out of other peoples money. Because that won't be cruel in anyway when we tell AOC's constituents that the whole "free **** whether you want to work or not" can't be sustainable, so where gonna kick everyone off.

    2. I quickly grew tired of how I felt under Obama. I received no credit for starting a business and providing jobs (Well before his tenure) as I learned from him that he and his government did that for me. I also did not like the SJW environment that flourished under Obama that told me because I am a middle age white male that makes an upper middle class living that I was the scum of the earth. I also do not like separatism. A person is a person, regardless of sex, race, religion, etc. but Progressive Liberals THRIVE to divide us by those means.

    In short, if a roll of tape was on the Republican ballot, I'm voting for a roll of tape because the DNC will not allow a Democrat to win the nomination, only a Progressive Liberal.

    And this republican has caused the budget deficit to skyrocket, which is especially funny considering when campaigning he said that he would eliminate the entire US national debt in his eight years. Which of course is a ludicrous claim even if he did actually follow through with aggressively cutting spending.

    I'll choose from the Dodgers. Still it is a great thought.

    For me I will likely vote for whom I feel is the best overall candidate irrespective of party.

    I don't give a rip about party, I literally would have voted for any of the GOP candidates other than Trump. With the democratic party going full on socialism and every candidate then raising their hand to give out healthcare to illegal immigrants, they are a hard pass.

    To paraphrase Edwin Edwards’ unofficial 1991 Louisiana gubernatorial campaign slogan: Vote for the socialist; it’s important

    I'm not a US citizen. I also speak Spanish. So I will probably go to California to vote for the democrat nominee.

    I hope you don’t invest at all since you think that the stock market being at over 26,000 is the same as it being at under 20,000

    You’re correct that the market has gone up under Trump. Not as much as it went up under Obama, but it has gone up.

    Eh, it’s not like you’ll be asked for an ID or anything. You have a promising shot.

    It’s like the saying goes, “what goes up, must come down.” And here we are.

    From Inauguration Day through August 12 of their third year in office, the DJIA went up 41.7% under Obama and 30.1% under Trump.

    Exactly my sediments and could not say it any better. If it continues the same under current Democrats, Trump for the next 4 years.

    You guys need to step up on your conspiracy theories. At least make illegals go on to vote on swing states. To make them vote in California is just a waste of resources. The state is hard-blue either way.
