If Trump quits before the election what will that do to Biden's chances?

I had that thought today.

Please share all your thoughts daily, OP. A new thread for each and every one. No skimping!

help a little bit, Biden needs so much help at this point, I am not sure what will happen.

OP, DL has a tradition of being cunty in R1, they are simply carrying on a weird tradition.

Biden is in a basement bunker. God help us all! Meanwhile, his son Beau is swindling an International Orphan's charity with his $2million consulting fee. Such a family. Also, Beau recently had a baby out of wedlock with a stripper. That makes Melania look saintly.

I think centrists want to vote Republican, especially if the protests and riots (civil disorders) continue. Any Republican has a better chance than Trump. If we have real riots late in the summer, even Trump will win. And Pence does not come with Trump's personal baggage.

Trump's ego won't allow him to quit.

by Anonymousreply 1406/29/2020

Oh, please, R12. Pence has the stink of Trump all over him. He’s a Stepford wife with (allegedly) a penis. The riots/protests have been over for weeks now. Most people support BLM at this point.

[quote] Biden needs so much help at this point

Yes, clearly. What with being only 10+ points ahead in the polls and all.

by Anonymousreply 1506/29/2020

Who knows. Trump was 10+ points behind a month before the last election when his pussygate tape came out and still won.

by Anonymousreply 1606/29/2020

I have an idea. The Repubs should nominate Bernie Sanders. That way all the BernieBros will have a reason for living, the Dems will control the White House and Congress, and stability will return. Why not, Bernie was not a Dem anyway.

by Anonymousreply 1706/29/2020

R16, that's because he was running against the only person in America he could beat.

He was never 10+ points behind.

Biden's son Beau died five years ago.

by Anonymousreply 2006/29/2020

R19 he was. The third week of Oct 2016 polls from ABC, CNBC, AP, and Reuters all showed Clinton with a 10-13 point lead over Trump

by Anonymousreply 2106/29/2020

And after Comey's letter all her leads sank to under 5.

by Anonymousreply 2206/29/2020

Yes R22 just looking at the ABC tracking poll, she bled 11 points in one week. Went from being up 12, to up 8, to up 5, to up 1 in just one week. Comey fucked her so bad

by Anonymousreply 2306/29/2020

Comey and Trump has a huge assist in a craven national media, such as the execrable NYTimes.

by Anonymousreply 2506/29/2020

How many times do people have to be told that the national polls don't mean anything? Because of the electoral college, it's a matter of states. Remember 3,000,000 more votes?

[QUOTE] And Pence does not come with Trump's personal baggage

But he also doesn't inspire the Trump cultists like Trump can.

by Anonymousreply 2706/29/2020

It would be a wash.

Whichever sucker they get to replace Trump would win back some moderate Republicans but would lose as many, if not more hardcore MAGAts who were not interested in voting for anyone who was not Trump and would likely sit home.

by Anonymousreply 2806/29/2020

How many times do pedantic jackasses need to be reminded that Trump can't win the Electoral College with a national 10+ point deficit?

by Anonymousreply 2906/29/2020

Little to no effect.

The pandemic the recession and Russian hacking is not the time voters want to hear about the “small government” horse shit the Republicans would nominate.

Besides, the GOP is a fascist party and they would never turn against or question Hair Furor.

This is not based in reality. Those people you describe would literally rather die than cede the country to the Democrats.

How many times do dolts like R 29 need to be reminded that the electoral vote discussion was about Clinton, not Trump?

If Trump quits his cultists will refuse to vote at all. It'll be a Democratic landslide of unimaginable proportions.

by Anonymousreply 3506/29/2020

Biden and his team will make this election a referendum on Trump. Biden will let Trump dig his own political grave. When someone is sinking don't throw that person a lifeline

by Anonymousreply 3606/29/2020

If Trump quits, I think Biden loses. Almost all of the Dem enthusiasm is related to getting rid of Trump and there's a lot of right-leaning people turned off by Trump who would gladly vote for someone with the same policies who just didn't come off like such an asshole idiot all the time.

by Anonymousreply 3706/29/2020

Nah, they love Trump because of his racism. That's it. Without that the Trump cultists will sit at home and scream about libtards rather than vote.

[quote]Nah, nobody gives a shit about anything to do with Russia.

But they (supposedly, anyway) give a shit about American soldiers. If all of this is true, it would be as gross a dereliction of his Presidential duties as he could possibly commit. Fucking with Biden and the Ukrainians for his and the Republicans' benefit is one thing. Knowing that Taliban fighters were receiving Russian bounties for killing American troops and doing nothing about it AND lying about it when called out on it might be that bridge too far for the Republicans to follow. All it would take is one big crack in the Republican dam to bring it all down.

by Anonymousreply 4406/29/2020

I would also add that his pick of VP could be the nail in the coffin, just like with Hillary and Tim Kaine. What the hell was that? Biden will need to bring more to the table to secure a win. I guess we'll have to wait until that cat is let out of the bag. August 1st(?).

by Anonymousreply 4506/29/2020

If the Republicans nominate someone sane, then Biden is screwed.

by Anonymousreply 4606/29/2020

R45 - maybe and maybe not, but yes - Kaine was no help. As gag-inducing as that queen Pence is, he solidified the evangelical base for Dump. Kaine brought absolutely nothing to Hillary's ticket. I always had the impression that she wanted Warren at the time - but knew that 2 women running would be a no-go for too many voters. What a strange world we live in.

by Anonymousreply 4706/29/2020

Trump wasn't running on an abysmal record in 2016.

Joe is soaring in the polls as trump shoots from foot to foot.

I would not be surprised if Trump is impeached BEFORE the election and removed BEFORE Biden's inauguration.

by Anonymousreply 4806/30/2020

Biden will lose this thing with or without Trump.

by Anonymousreply 4906/30/2020

I don't think Trump will quit. People are speculating he will quit and be pardoned by the now President Pence before the election so he won't end up in jail, but I just think Trump is too stupid and too narcissistic to even think of that as an option.

by Anonymousreply 5006/30/2020

Trump needs the Presidency to protect him - for now.

Sane? Republican?

R52 I mean someone Republicans that have abandoned Trump and are voting for Biden. If the GOP nominates Kasich, Weld, or Romney, then Biden could lose GOP support.

What do you think OP theist Pence will win in a landslide. Ahhhh not gonna happen.

by Anonymousreply 5406/30/2020

That’s why Democrats have to run against not just Trump but Pence as well.

by Anonymousreply 5506/30/2020

I think a far more likely scenario is for Trump to bow out of the race, but not the presidency. He will complete his term. He will be replaced on the ballot by Ivanka as an October surprise. It will be a win/win. She has the Trump name and the Republicans can claim the first woman president. She will run on continuing the Trump legacy. It will appeal to the MAGA crowd and moderate Republicans.

by Anonymousreply 5606/30/2020

Many of Trump's voters voted for Obama

They are scared and looking for any sign of change

Once Trump is declared the official GOP nominee, he can’t just back out.

Not even remotely true.

If Trump quits the 2020 GOP campaign will implode.

by Anonymousreply 6106/30/2020

The interesting challenge is to imagine just what this would look like. The Trump coalition is not the Republican coalition. Rust Belt and Midwestern Trump supporters are not a slam dunk for Romney. Would Nikki Haley be able to rally anti-immigrant America Firsters? Would Cruz be able to resist the opportunity to whine his way to the nomination?

None of this works out quickly. Rushed campaigns tend to make mistakes and fail to bring contentious factions together, especially if there are multiple candidates.

by Anonymousreply 6206/30/2020

I don't trust the polls. There are many "closet" Trump voters who will lie to friends, family and pollsters.

by Anonymousreply 6306/30/2020

R63, all the more reason to vote, and get like-minded friends and family registered and voting.
