...Trump’s approval with senior citizens is only 2 points higher than the national average — and these voters want him defeated in 2020 by a margin of 48 to 41.

Some elderly voters are losing patience with his presidency. “He’s trying to trumpet himself to the public to make them feel as good about him as he does … What I would like to see him do is shut his mouth,” said 69-year-old retired California firefighter union president David Smith, who is currently an undecided voter. David Freund, a 65-year-old Indiana truck driver, said that he is a “Biden man” because “according to all the polls, he could beat Trump.”

Trump cannot win re-election without solid support from elderly voters. The WSJ/NBC poll finds that Trump’s approval with voters aged 18 to 34 is just 33 percent, and Democratic candidates have a broad package of policies attractive to younger voters like student loan forgiveness and climate action. So if senior voters jump ship, it is hard to imagine who would be left in the president’s camp.

Only Biden and Sanders can safely beat Trump in Wisconsin at this point

A CBS News poll found that 78% of Democratic voters in early primary states rate climate change as a “very important” issue, putting it ahead of income inequality and jobs, and suggesting environmental action growing increasingly important to left-leaning voters. What do you think?
“Leave it to Democratic voters to place importance on losing issues like an existential threat to the world.”

elsewhere
There was an episode of Pinky & the Brain in which he ran for President, and all of his megalomaniacal proclamations during the campaign got interpreted by the listeners as something they wanted.

Brain: If anyone opposes me, I'll teach them a lesson.
Mother with multiple children: Finally, someone who supports better education.

Brain: Submit to me, and nobody will get hurt.
Elderly man in a nursing home: Nobody will get sick? Health care!! Great health care!!


I'd rather have the Brain in office.
