It was going to be an election based on capitalism vs. socialism at a time when capitalism was doing very well. Now the attention has shifted to freedom vs. autocratic methods ,and it appears Democrats are falling on the wrong side of both arguments.

Read this over a month ago--- read esp. the last paragraph. "
- "Yitzhak Ben Israel of Tel Aviv University, who is on the research and advisory board for one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in the world (Teva), has concluded that all the lockdowns, all the shutdowns, all the closing of churches, schools, beaches, businesses, restaurants, and parks was nothing more than economy-destroying madness. It has all been unnecessary because coronavirus runs its own course no matter what governments do or do not do.

Professor Ben Israel plotted the rates of new coronavirus infections in the U.S., the U.K., Sweden, Italy, Israel, Switzerland, France, Germany, and Spain - the countries that most resemble the United States in culture and governing structure.. He discovered an amazing and even astounding thing.... It didn’t matter whether a country pursued a severe incarceration-in-place policy like Israel, or went about business as usual like Sweden, coronavirus followed precisely the same pattern. In the words of columnist Medina Melvin of Townhall, “coronavirus peaked and subsided in the exact same way. In the exact, same, way".

Dr. Ben Israel’s research showed that all countries experienced identical patterns of disease progression. Infections grew steadily, even exponentially, until they peaked in the sixth week, and began to rapidly subside by the eighth week."

Good post-----This is the bottom line--- Tucker Carlson Perfectly Breaks Down The Protests: -‘What You Are Watching Is Class War Disguised As A Race War’. -- The middle class is the heartbeat of any culture.-- As the Left undermines it,,, the nation declines.

As much as Republicans would like it to be about the economy, it was always going to be a referendum on Trump. COVID has muddied the waters, but also given people the opportunity to further see Trump's incoherence. He has no growth potential. The only question now is how much of the Republican Congress he is going to take with him.

The economy was in the best shape in years, and it appears to be coming back strong.
Just need to cut some more spending on the government side and finish off the failed Obamacare experiment along with getting California out of the rest of the countrys pockets.

Even if COVID never happened and the economy remained strong, Trump loses. You Trump fans don't even see what's happening around you.
