Unrealistic scenario: Everyone stays in and boosts the debate ratings, where the focus on Coronavirus shows the necessity of M4A, and it becomes a race again.

With how badly Trump is handling the pandemic and the economy tanking as a result, Trump might be set up for a loss regardless of opponent (dangerously complacent thinking, but still).
Italy has national health care. So I dont think that helps your cause. If trump loses the election it will be because he is an asshole, not because of his policies.

Have to disagree.

Ultimately some people are willing to live with him being an asshole because it doesn't effect them otherwise. They are doing well financially. But this is a closed group. This is mostly white folks who only think he's an asshole.

However, if the economy stays down, he'll lose voters. He'll lose voters if the death rate goes up. He has lost voters thanks to his Iran misadventure.

Don't fall into the trap that people aren't grading him on his actual job performance. They are.

Does anyone think that the horrorific selfishness shown by the current crop of college kids puts the nail in Student Loan Debt Forgiveness?

Or how about only for people who went to college before 2018?
Is this question genuine, or are you trying to start conversation?

I have a hard time believing you actually think this is specific to a generation, and not just a youth thing.

I also don’t think a few spring break videos represent an entire generation. As was pointed out somewhere, those aren’t Millenialson spring break. It’s Gen Z

If you look hard enough, you can find people to represent any opinion you hold. I agree that a small group should not be used to represent an entire group.

Are those spring breakers assholes? Oh yeah.

Does it mean a single thing in terms of differences between their generation and previous ones? I don't believe so.

Probably not. I was a staunch Chief Wahoo supporter until about my mid 20s when I began to have empathy and compassion for others.

Still Chief Wahoo supporter, still have empathy and compassion for others. That's just trying to demonize someone who disagree's w/ you when you say that. It's a veiled attack meant to give you the illusion of the moral high ground.

National healthcare isn't about being impenetrable from diseases, it's about the fact that millions don't have health insurance at all.

If trump loses the election it will be because he is an asshole, not because of his policies.
What do you mean by this? That his comments during the pandemic are going to hurt him more than his actual response?

Interesting hypothetical that my wife and I were just talking about:

If Dewine were somehow to run for President in the 2020 Election, would he win?

Obviously not happening now, but he could end up w/ a run for POTUS with his handling of this issue in 4 years.

A Republican Governor from Ohio will always be a candidate for the GOP to turn to.

Kasich was in play. DeWine will be.

If you can deliver a swing state, that's a big leg up on the competition.

No--I do not believe DeWine would win the 2020 election.
