There is a popular post on DU suggesting Trump won't make it to the General Election. Let's do a poll [View all]

Here is the thread: https://www.democraticunderground.com/100218632620

So will Trump's mental decline prevent him from making it to the General Election? I don't have a strong opinion either way. It was such a popular post I was just curious how that idea would poll here on DU.

Trump won't make it to the General Election or he will be too damaged to be viable because of too much cognative decline and lose badly.

Even with cognative decline he will make it to the GE and it will be a close race

Yes, the poll is asking for multiple prediction. DC77 Jan 28 #9
The reason I included that it would be close in the second choice is because in the thread I link to Quixote1818 Jan 28 #11
Not sure why anyone would think it won't be close considering his last two elections were extremely close. MyNameIsJonas Jan 28 #12
Because he's a blithering idiot and a criminal? WestMichRad Jan 28 #14

This poll, of course, is meaningless. I do think his cognitive decline is becoming more and more obvious. NNadir Jan 28 #13
