...The New York Times foreshadowed on Monday in an ominous analysis of recent polling data, the 2020 election unfolds differently. Trump wins but without a mandate. On the contrary, he earns something like an anti-mandate...
Trump remains quite competitive in the states that put him over the top in the Electoral College last time Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Those are states he would likely carry, as he did last time, by a relatively narrow margin. Meanwhile, Trump's extreme and intense unpopularity among Democrats points to a 2020 vote in which the margin of his loss in "blue" states could be enormous. Instead of winning an anemic 31.6 percent of the vote in California, as he did in 2016, Trump might realistically pull in just 25 percent in 2020...
... Democrats and their allies would be perfectly justified in taking to the streets in outraged protest, and they would almost certainly do so in numbers that would rival or surpass what we've seen in recent weeks in Chile. More radical factions, including troublemaking Antifa activists, would do their best to spark violence, with the president egging them on with taunts on Twitter, and in speeches at rallies and at official events.
With protests growing in size and unrest increasing, municipalities would send in the police, just as Trump would eventually deploy the national guard, to restore order using force. Which would only intensify the indignation fueling the protests, leading the cycle to continue and escalate...

Which is why it’s important that as many people vote for Trump, even in states where it may be a lost cause.
If? Dumbass writer.
They know he will win. It’s destroying them inside.
I did. I was first at my precinct to vote in-person in 2016, although many had already submitted early vote ballots.
even in upstate NY we will vote because we need to help the down ballot folks. Our Congressional District probably won't go for Trump but he'll get massive support.
The premise is bass-ackwards. If he wins the electoral college numbers the 5 million votes don’t mean squat.
Just as a team that has more offensive yards doesn’t win the football game.
“...Trump might realistically pull in just 25 percent in 2020...”
Easy solution. NYC, Chicago, LA, Philadelphia, Miami, San Francisco, and whatever other liberal urban center that wants to join, can all secede from the US and form their own government. They won’t have a military. They won’t have a means to grow food for themselves. They won’t have minerals or petroleum reserves. And, all of their ‘money’ can be easily moved to other locations. But they can choose the specific ‘leaders’ without having to worry about the electoral college..
We need to make sure everyone votes, even in the reddest of red states.
It is the electoral college, which reflects the collection of how the vote went with the states, state by state, that elects the president, not the “popular” vote, which by itself alone CANNOT represent THE STATES of these United States.
Using the “popular vote” will incite a new civil war, as MOST of the country would get overruled by the merely most populace places in the country. It would be a victory of filaments of blue in a sea of red.
IT DOESN'T FRIG' N MATTER !
Democrats and their allies would be perfectly justified in taking to the streets in outraged protest...
“Outraged protest” is sogdignalling for violence and destruction.
We need to make sure Warren is The Democrat Opponent
I always think of the electoral college like... offensive yardage in football. TONS of teams LOSE the game who actually gained MORE yards than the other team, but have a hard time in the green zone actually scoring and thus lose.
And Trump supporters would be perfectly justified in taking up arms and violently suppression such a flagrant illegal attempt to over turn the duly elected government of the US by force.
You want to try on Treason Democrat Fascists propaganda bots? Go right ahead but let me warn you, getting shot hurts...alot.
Then we will have President Trump.... no matter HOW many Mexicans and cemeteries the Democrats get to vote.
And if they take to the streets and seize the government by force, against the constitutional electoral college... then we have the 2nd amendment.
This is why EVERYBODY on our side needs to vote. Even in states like California.
