If we are in recession during the Presidential election how bad will Trump get crushed?


With a "good economy" he is struggling! Take that away and we could see a blue tidal wave of epic proportions! I predict we would win Texas, Utah, Arizona, Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Georgia, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, Utah, Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, Kansas and Indiana plus the more predictable blue states.

My prediction as I think Trump would lose at least 7 points in each state from his current numbers if we are in a recession:

Electoral Votes:

Dem candidate: 449 Trump: 89

2. The new Dem President will be presented...

...with a giant shit sandwich. Just like Clinton was... just like Obama was.
And nice, big, triple-decker of economic feces.
The big question is.... will the shit-sandwich be too big for the new President to eat? Will it choke the country? The world?

5. Yep, but we know a recession is coming so it might as well come sooner rather than later

If we barely beat Trump and then a recession hits the Dem President will get blamed. If we don't get one early and Trump wins then he will get blamed but we would still be screwed!!!! There are no great scenarios but a recession in the next 12 months is clearly the best thing that can happen to the US.

3. What if we aren't in a recession and trump whips white wingers into a voting frenzy?

Or, what if GOPers pull support for trump and a “moderate,” assuming there is such a thing, GOPer is the nominee.

Not, counting on anything before Nov 4th. But a landslide would be something special.

...and would like to add, he'll be crushed lower than snail shit at the bottom on the ocean...

" Dem candidate: 449 Trump: 89. "

...any Dem candidate could easily win with those numbers and cushion...

...good to know...

7. Bigly and Badly

And Moscow Mitch, the newly anointed Senate minority leader (unless he loses and here's hoping), will go on and on about how making the new President a one-termer if his top priority.
