Donald Trump On The Way To A Potential Worst Election Defeat Than Any Republican Since 1964

Donald Trump, in the midst of the COVID 19 Pandemic, seems to be on the road to the worst election defeat for a Republican Presidential nominee since Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona in 1964, against President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Goldwater only won 6 states and 38.5 percent of the vote in 1964, and since then, only George H. W. Bush lost his reelection in a three way race in 1992 with lower percentage, 37.4 percent, but also 18 states won by Bush.

Trump has never won a majority of support in any legitimate public opinion poll since his inauguration, and remember he won the Electoral College in 2016 by small margins in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

He has seen some of those who voted for him turning against him in recent months, with his horrid policies on the CoronaVirus Pandemic, so uncaring and lacking in empathy, sincerity, decency, and compassion, but now he and his supporters in the top level of government also facing the pandemic themselves.

So in a two way race as now, he may be in the camp of Goldwater, or possibly even worse, as Alfred Landon in 1936 against Franklin D. Roosevelt with only 36.5 percent of the vote!

    Exactly, Princess Leia, the reason why I posted this article!

    Ronald writes, “…George H. W. Bush lost his reelection in a three way race in 1992 with lower percentage, 37.4 percent, but also 19 states won by Bush.”

    George Bush, when he was unseated by Bill Clinton in 1992, carried 18 states.

    When he was elected in 1988, Bush carried 40 states.

    The change in the 1988-to-1992 map was that 22 states switched party support to deliver a Democratic pickup of the presidency to Bill Clinton while he unseated George Bush.

    With his COVID–19 diagnosis, reported last Friday [October 2, 2020], it is the strongest indication of the end of the presidency of Donald Trump.

    Oops, D, you are correct, so I am capable of an error and to admit to such! HAHA LOL! 🙂

    I have made the correction, and thanks again!

    His joyride yesterday makes me question how sick he really is.

    The drugs he’s taking are normally used only for the severely ill, which makes it all the more confusing as to what his condition truly is.

    The virus certainly hasn’t hurt Trump’s ego. He tweeted this today –

    I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!

    That tweet of his is an insult to the 200,000+ dead from the virus.

    When he arrived back at the White House tonight, he looked like he was having trouble breathing.

  10. Former Republican October 5, 2020 10:37 pm

    Yeah. Like he was gasping (from having to walk up the stairs), but trying to hide it.

  11. Pragmatic Progressive October 5, 2020 10:39 pm

    I noticed that as well. And trying hard to look steady on his feet, but failing badly.

  12. Rational Lefty October 5, 2020 10:42 pm

    He looked very uncomfortable — physically. I’m simply rolling the dice on this one, and it is pure speculation, but I bet he’s back at Walter Reed before this is over.

    Just saw this on Twitter. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit. –

    -Trump gets #COVID19
    -Gets treated with a kitchen sink of stuff
    -Gets lucky and it works
    -Claims he tested treatment himself and it is OK
    -Forces FDA to approve
    -Declares crisis OVER

    Please, everyone, say a prayer for all the dedicated White House permanent staff — the butlers, the housekeepers, the janitors—being forced to work in a Covid hot zone. Their lives are being endangered so a weak, enfeebled man can pretend to be strong.
