There will be a titanic struggle this Fall between the Republicans - minus a few who care about their constituents - and the Democrats, to implement ballot by mail where it isn't already in place. If The Republicans succeed in blocking it in enough places, Trump stands a modest chance of winning and the Senate will likely stay under Republican control. If they fail, and voting by mail is possible for virtually everyone, then not only is Trump out, but the Senate will be under Democratic control. This is the elephant in the room, for now.
Vote by mail opposition might be a fiasco for the Republicans.

I know many Democratic voters that say they will crawl over broken glass and past dead bodies to vote this year. Trump might be loved by a few, but is hated by more.

Trump canceled (OK, officially postponed) his New Hampshire rally due to very likely lack of attendance (OK, officially due to weather. Was a tropical depression kinda sorta near by, and was a small chance of showers or thunderstorms).

Tulsa was only 1/3 full. Probably infected at least multiple hundreds, perhaps thousands. At a death rate of 1%, that's 10's of people Trump killed at minimum, perhaps hundreds.

So the Republicans block vote by mail. Democratic votes will mask up and get in line. Republican voters?

Republicans have an enthusiasm gap. A lot of them don't want to go to listen to Trump anymore, he can deny the risk of coronavirus and death, but the voters are not listening. Will they vote for him, if it involves risk and waiting in line for hours? Maybe not.

I am going to go out on a limb and say you are wrong. The numbers do not support what you are saying. The smart voter will vote by mail. ...
Absolutely. Avoids the polling-place shenanigans meant to suppress the vote.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

I think a big problem will be the older conservative crowd in places like Florida. Traditionally republican but they also don't like how Trump has handled Covid. For some reason they do not like to die. Go figure.

I always vote by mail. But I'm in CA.

I agree he is going to loose this time though.
That's what lots of people were saying in 2016, too.
Just to be clear here... I was just pointing out that people didn't think he would win, and then he did, surprising many.

I personally think he's a menace to the country. I think people need to actively work against his reelection.

Not true that the weather informed the decision not to rally in NH- he still has that Sharpie!
