Donald Trump is now openly begging for votes

Trump is so desperate he is begging for votes.  Poor little Donald...

Biden and his supporters are strictly off topic.

At a rally in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday night, President Donald Trump revealed just how desperate his political fortunes are at the moment.


"Suburban women, will you please like me?"   he pleaded . "I saved your damn neighborhood."

Which, well, awkward.


Trump is right, of course, that he has a major problem with suburban voters -- and suburban women in particular. 


In 2016, Trump won voters who lived in the suburbs -- 49% of the total electorate -- by 2 points over Hillary Clinton, according to Pew .



Two years later, the President's party was crushed in the 2018 midterms -- losing control of the House -- thanks in large part to a   suburban revolt against Trump . House Democratic candidates won 52% of suburban voters as compared to just 45% for House GOPers.


Of the 41 seats Democrats picked up in the 2018 election,  38 were in predominantly suburban districts . Which is remarkable.


Unfortunately for Trump -- and down-ballot Republicans -- the 2018 midterms weren't the low ebb for the President in the eyes of suburbanites.

States like Colorado, Pennsylvania, Texas, Georgia and Florida -- where much of the population resides in suburban areas -- have all moved away from Trump over the past few years. 

Colorado looks to be out of reach for the President, and his struggles will likely cost Republican Sen. Cory Gardner his seat. Pennsylvania remains a possibility for Trump but his poor performance in the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh suburbs could be too big a hole for him to dig out of. 

Florida, Texas and Georgia are all toss ups at this point, largely due to Trump's underperformance in the suburban areas of the state.

The problem for Trump is that knowing he has a problem in the suburbs and fixing it are two very different things. Trump, as his quote on Tuesday night makes clear, has tried to scare women in the suburbs into voting for him; if Joe Biden wins, he claim with little subtlety, roving gangs of Antifa supporters will invade your suburban paradise.

But female suburban voters aren't buying it.   As The New York Times wrote last month , citing polling data in Minnesota and Wisconsin:

"President Trump's effort to court suburban women by promising to protect their neighborhoods is encountering one sizable hitch: Most suburban women say their neighborhoods aren't particularly under threat."


The Point : Trump knows he is losing. And he knows that a lot of the problem has to do with the suburbs, and women living in the suburbs in particular. He also has no message that persuades them to reconsider voting for him. So he is resorting to begging -- which rarely works.

OK fair enough, but it was not meant to say she would commit violence. To clarify,  the women told others of voting for Biden because they know the violent tendencies of many liberals if they find out anyone is a Trump supporter.

Again, no biggie

Perhaps it's because the rats on the Trumptanic's food (aka right wing media) was drugged. Trump assured them that his ship is unsinkable and in their drugged stupor they believed him. Now it's almost too late. The ship is sinking and the rats are still celebrating, dancing, drinking and cheering on deck.

True love means working to get them educated, so yes Democrats try to educate the poorly educated. Once educated, they often vote Democrat.

Trump and conservative Republicans seem to love to keep their voters uneducated, if they didn't their base would evaporate because few rational educated persons would buy the horse shit they're selling.

You can fix ignorance with knowledge. Sadly, you just can't fix stupid as many Trump die hard supporters have proven.

in fact, Democrats are fond of reminding us that much of their base (which is poorly educated) vote for them and not the GOP.

Is that how it works? Neighborhoods like Englewood in Chicago that have voted Democratic almost unanimously for generations and have been among the most violent and poverty stricken in the country are filled with highly educated voters?

rump and conservative Republicans seem to love to keep their voters uneducated

You've just described the last 150 years of Democratic machine politics and you blame Trump for that? Hilarious. School systems in Democratic cities exist not to educate students,  but to reward Democrats with patronage jobs. The worse their students do, the better Democrats do. 

The last time they tracked voters without high schools educations, the truly uneducated, they provided Obama with his biggest advantage over Romney  in votes.

Is that how it works?

" Democrats increasingly dominate in party identification among white college graduates – and maintain wide and long-standing advantages among black, Hispanic and Asian American voters. Republicans increasingly dominate in party affiliation among white non-college voters, who continue to make up a majority (57%) of all GOP voters."

"62% of white college educated women vote Democratic"

"62% of white non-college educated men vote Republican"

You didn't rebut a single thing I wrote. That college educated whites, might for the first time ever, support the Democratic candidate in a Presidential election doesn't address what I wrote.

Try again. Why don't you look up the education levels in Englewood and the percentage of Democratic votes its generates.  nasty right wing extremist hole you pulled it from

It's called reality. Which is why you avoid it in favor of name calling. Good thing you didn't even try and dispute it. Why don't you fact check this, for starters?

Why would I bother to rebut your laughable opinions on 150 years of Democrats? It's bullshit rhetoric on the face of it and deserves no rebuttal because it's patently ridiculous.

It's called reality.

The nonsense you're spouting is no where near reality. When someone proclaims the world is flat it's easier to just laugh and move on, trying to explain reality to them is obviously just a waste of time. You present a flat earth political narrative built around defending and deflecting for the worst sack of shit President in American history, rational persons can but shake their heads, laugh and move on.
