Maybe I should not make such speculative claims. I could be wrong. But there are very many signs Dems gonna lose in the mid-terms and in the election 2024. I think this will become very very hard times for progressives. I am very glad I don't live in the US. (Compared to developing country it is of course still way way better.) The supreme court really wants to create a new America. The only thing that could stop them was to add more judges to the court. But Dems are too scared about that. I am not sure whether I would support it. This move could be also seen as somewhat undemocratic.

I think Trump might get damaged due to the January 6th hearings. I know we all were like "no he cannot survive that one" every time for example when the grab the pussy tape was a thing. It is true teflon Donny is very skilled at saving his own ass. But I think even many supporters and even more independents are annoyed because he cannot stop talking about the rigged election. I think this is his biggest disadvantage.

I absolutely dislike DeSantis and Trump. But most democrats suck ass too. I don't like Kamala, Pete or who else. For me it is rather a race between DeSantis or Trump. The dems gonna lose anyway. And the notion to take this senile Biden is horrifying. Personally I cannot fully understand why Biden is that unpopular. But most news I read are his policies on the war in Ukraine. And personally I think the strategy was not that bad so far. The US intelligence services predicted the war long ago and the Europeans did not want to listen. I don't really believe that Biden is the commander in chief. I think he is too old and weak for that. The people behind him have probably a huge influence and hope that when granddad speaks to the press that he does not lose control again. But yeah for me personally I would prefer such a government to Trump or DeSantis any time.

DeSantis is big on anti-covid mandates, has horrible policies on trans rights and probably will leave NATO.
The media coverage in my country is 98% in favor of Dems. They call DeSantis the smarter Trump. Someone who is more component and this is why he could cause more damage. I won't judge on that. I don't know him enough. But many are very scared that the US won't protect us when the Russians invade us.

As a New Yorker living in Florida, DeSantis as president scares the hell out of me. I hated Trump to the core and agree that maybe finally, he'll be hurt by the Jan. 6th investigation. Both he and DeSantis are dangerous egomaniacs, but DeSantis is scarier because he's smart enough to stay off twitter and appear at least like a true family man.

I can honestly say that I didn't start out hating DeSantis. Early on he seemed alright. He has now proven however, that he thinks he can do whatever he wants to control Floridians and the really sad thing is that so many of them are fooled into thinking he's keeping FL free! If you're a white, straight, Christian male that wants to remain superior, hell yeah he is!

A big part of why I'm so miserable is because I hate living in Florida. My only glimmer of hope is in returning to NY but if DeSantis becomes president, no where in the US will be safe or tolerable.

I don't think DeSantis will become president, it's either Trump or a democrat.
I feel like Trump will run no matter what. DeSantis cares for the Republican party and his political future. Trump is an egomaniac, he does not care for the republican party, he'll run for the republican party or as an independent. If DeSantis is going to run, Trump will be like "That's cool, I'll run too".
Republican party most likely won't want to split their votes and will let Trump run, or if not, they'll be fucked hard.

I hope you're right about DeSantis not becoming Dictator of the United States because if he wins a presidential election that's what he'll be. Proof is in Don't Say Gay, the Stop Woke Act, new "Civics" education requirement, new election law and guardsman, position on abortion, no need for separation of church and state etc. etc. etc.
And since Florida is a state that hasn't expanded Medicaid, imagine what he'd do with healthcare and other support systems. So scary!

It will be interesting to see who both the republicans and democrats choose for 2024. The Dems need to have a strong candidate for sure and I don't have any answers on who that could be. I am curious, noname123, what is it that you dislike about Buttigieg?

I desperately hope so. I want to wake up from the unbelievable nightmare of present-day America. Of course we saw with Trump that getting a decent guy in the office doesn't really change much when the rest of society is still rotten to the core and fully controlled by the woke elites.

Funny how when the tiniest hole is punctured in the reigning system of woke left-totalitarianism that characterizes modern America, the left starts insisting dictatorship is just around the corner, as if it's not already here but just in a form that you're happily complicit in.

As a non American I am mind blown by republican politics. Seems like it would make sense in 1805. But like what the fuck. Sad.

I actually take that back. Socially fucked. But economically I generally am conservative, but only for selfish reasons not because I believe it's right.

The pessimist in me thinks we're screwed either way now and even more in the future. I fear for future generations and am saddened that my generation is not leaving a better world for them. The extent of corruption and denial in our 2 party system and the money that goes into campaigning is disgusting. Voting comes down to the lesser of 2 evils.

The term "woke" is like nails on a chalkboard irritating to me. That said, I'd rather be "woke" than not and especially if that means affording equal rights regardless of color, gender, sexual orientation, and religion then yes, I'm in favor. If it means acknowledging the world we're currently living in and not wanting to return to 1805 or 1950 or 1980 or anytime that's not current day reality then yup, I guess I'm "woke" AF.

As much as politicians here complained about what happened in Afghanistan, the Republicans appear to be supporting the same activities here. We should ALL be afraid.
