8. Is He Indeed Barrelling Towards Re-Election?

I don’t think so.

Donnie got into the White House in large part due to an apathetic electorate and poorly mobilized Democratic voting block.

Donnie crested over the Blue Wall in part due to both the bigots coming out of the woodwork and the hopeful marks believing that he’d bring jobs and good times back to the Rust Belt. Donnie’s still got the bigots and the Holy Joes but a lot of the people who believed his economic BS have been wised up—the same way the folks at Lordstown and Carrier have been.

Granted, his victories in places like Michigan and Wisconsin were by slivers, but he’s been losing backers by slivers since Inauguration Day 2017. There may be suckers who can be scammed multiple times, but there are other suckers who can only get conned once because they learn from experience. The death by a thousand cuts might not be as spectacular as a curb-stomp or a decapitation, but it is nevertheless fatal.

This nay-sayer might have half a point: beating Orange Julius won’t be a cake walk. But long hard slogs can bring victory too.
