    Possibly, if Congress starts acting on behalf of the protestors. But that wasn't the question. If anybody expects the insanity to stop once Trump and Republicans are reelected, they'll be very disappointed.

    I am with you on this but if the Americans who are not socialists/communits are not woke to the woke by now I am concerned that they are asleep at the wheel.
    We can hope AND we can vote but mostly we can still pray.
    Long live the Republic and the freedom that comes with it.

    Gorka was of course right about Hillary and Obama's love for Alinsky. That's been out there forever but people either didn't believe it, didn't know the ramifications of it, or agreed with it. Scary/disgusting either way.

    I've seen posts from leftest saying there is no way they can support the Dems and they no recognize the party they once identified with. They didn't say they were going to support Trump, just that they could no longer support the Dems.

    Voting Trump is about thinking long-term. There will probably be several more Supremes bowing out in the next four years (1 possible retiree and one finally declared deceased) and there will be hundreds of additional judicial appointments. In addition, more deep staters from the backrooms of entrenched bureaucracies will get sidelined.

    All of this stuff is being allowed to happen in blue states and cities to undermine the Presidency. I do believe that once Trump is reelected, the violence will be once again controlled and the House will go back to impeachment #2 and continue to undermine his presidency from the chambers. That is, unless we take back the House, which in my view is a great possibility. I have to believe that everywhere America, those of us who really love our country, are getting tired of this BS the left and Deep State are pushing. It's sad times, but I think the only way to defeat this sh*t is to reelect Trump and let him continue to work against the DC machine and continue to push through the crap to lift up our country for the citizens of these United States of America.

    Winning the house back will stop these endless partisan investigations that have been a part of our politics for the last nearly four years. It will give both houses of congress the opportunity to get back to legislating instead of investigating. Whether the politicians take advantage of that opportunity if presented is a different story altogether...

    :laughabove: ... Nails it right there.

    Trump ain't perfect, but re-electing him AND maintaining Repub control over of the Senate buys time: another 4-years to continue seeding the trial and appellate levels of the federal court system (not just SCOTUS) with judges having a conservative/libertarian mindset.

    Decades after Trump is gone, these judges will become the roadblocks that forstall a future Leftist-dominated Congress from trashing those constitutional rights (2A, 1A) and traditional U.S. institutions (Electoral College, states rights, federalism, a generally free market) which are currently impediments to their implementing a top-down, collectivist 'Command Society,' one in which we receive our daily marching orders from Washington.

    Second, to a great extent, although Trump did achieve some of his stated goals, like passage of the tax-cut legislation and eliminating the more burdensome regulations of the federal Administrative State, most of his first term was spent fighting off attacks by the Deep State seeking to undermine his credibility and popularity (overtly, the Russia Hoax is the main one, but not the only one), not to mention the over-hyped Impeachment charade.

    Had Barr been his first A.G., rather than Sessions, these attacks might have been nipped in the bud or certainly mitigated.

    So, a second 4-yr term will allow Trump to actually focus on pursuing completion of the economic, immigration, and foreign-policy goals he campaigned on in 2016, and - with Barr as A.G. and a set of Mil- and Intel leadership teams in place that he can trust to have his back - he can continue to 'drain the swamp' of such rogue Deep Statists as may still be hiding in the dark recesses of the federal Intel bureaucracy.

    Republicans holding the Senate and regaining the House means the Democrats would not have a majority of votes needed to launch any more phony balony “Russian collusion” type investigations. Therefore Trump can work on his vision of a much better America without all the BS to contend with.

    See that half-wit Adam Schiff's threat to do "impeachment 2.0" again. He needs to be retired - to the 'funny farm'. What an assclown!

    I think I completely understand what you mean by this. I am tired of RINOs. I am tired of the idiocy coming out of DC. Trump getting in has started a lot of this madness... or maybe more correctly "exposed" so much of the DC madness / idiocy. It is the same as cleaning a mess of a basement that hasn't been touched in decades... it becomes more of a mess in the middle of cleaning, but in the end it is better.

    Hopefully, President Trump can get more done his second term -- since he is not thinking about reelection, he can really push things through.

    Honestly I wish the Republican party had a better person ready to go, someone with President Trump's no nonsense "get it done" attitude, but maybe a bit more politically savvy and polite (and off of Twitter...). But the Republicans have no one even close that I know of. There are some Republican politicians that might work, but from what I know none are actively looking to run at this time.

    So, the coming months will be interesting. lol, I laugh thinking back on the past 3 years... what could possibly go wrong now??!

    As to the title of this thread about Democrats losing supporters to President Trump ...

    Everyday recently I am reading and hearing from the "news" that Republicans are losing supporters because of President Trump. If the main stream media is reporting that, that maybe that proves that the Dems are in worse shape and losing voters. (liberal news trying to hide what is really happening)

    They're not in power. Democrats hold the House, thus preventing most meaningful legislation from passing.

    If they stay home and don't vote, that will be helpful to Trump.

    If all the mess in DC is preventing Congress from passing more laws, I think President Trump is doing great!
