    Depending on the next 2 years, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a red wave 2020.

    The next two years will be interesting.
    2017-2018 the Repugs were concentrating on running the country allowing the Dims to concentrate on politics.
    Now both parties have a skin in the game of running the country.
    I definitely think the Repugs will try to counteract.

    Im going to enjoy Pelosi vs Trump, it’ll be a funny next two years. That lady can’t even talk without slurring her words.

    I would. Trump is very unpopular. His biggest legislative achievement has been tax cuts for the rich. He’s shown an unwillingness to compromise. There won’t be any major legislation passed the next 2 years. It’ll be wall to wall scandal investigations and political show downs over the budget. The electorate will tire of his nonsense.

    Doubtful he has Pelosi to hammer for the next 2 years. If an investigation comes up with anything maybe. Seeing Jeff Session resign is good trump is going to need his Eric Holder right hand man in the coming years.

    She can get in the gutter with Trump as well.
    I always thought she was the slimiest politician at the National level until Trump came along.

    And now the Dims will be joining in against him and getting on his level ( except Pelosi ... she is already there).
    I guarantee you that there are as many people in America that hate Pelosi as the number that hate Trump.
    I dislike both equally.

    His reelection wouldn’t shock me, but I don’t see him winning in a wave. Just barely squeaking by like he did the last time.

    Trump got 306 electors, or 57% of the 538 available.
    306 (57%) - 232 (43%) is not a Red Wave but it is way beyond 'barely squeaking by'.
    Bias a lot? LOL

    70k votes over 3 states. Squeaked is appropriate especially after he just lost the governorships of all those states.

    I think you should start more threads...

    Oh, hey, I have an idea, why don't you start multiple threads?

    Wait, I have a better idea, have you thought about spamming the site with multiple threads which basically address nothing?

    It could be awesome!

    Every candidate that Trump backed won with the possible exception of the AZ Senate race. Doesn't sound unpopular to me.

    Really? He backed and campaigned for Vukmir in Wisconsin. She lost by double digits.
