With Trump's support cratering, will the GOP still try to steal the election for him?

They've been working frantically to suppress the vote anywhere and in any way they can. Now with the country on fire, do they really think he isn't hurting their chances in the down-ballot races?

Are they going to continue their "You can't vote because you looked at me funny" tactics?

1. It's in the works already...

Mail-in voting...trying to stop or at very least discredit it.

2. Well, in the last 3-4 days, I've received nearly 200 requests from every Repuke name you've ever

heard of requesting donations. So, I guess that means the GOP is still behind him.

Somehow, they got my email address and are getting so desperate for donations, they are threatening me of all the doom and gloom Schumer, Pelosi and Biden will bring down on me if I don't contribute.

I was going to retort, but I fear them and their tactics. I just delete, for now, but can see my daily task will begin with deleting their emails from now to death. I feel like I've contacted Covid-19.

3. Here in Texas we will have to risk our lives to vote because of the pandemic.

So if you count that the GOP trying to cheat, then the answer is yes.

It looks like Cornyn will be reelected as senator, so the main targets for Republicans to attempt retaking are some county judicial and commissioner court positions. I would say that the county most likely to flip back to the GOP is Dallas County.

On a different topic, I'm happy to report that when I went to the grocery store on Friday afternoon about 60% of the shoppers were wearing masks. Normally, it is around 30% when I go in the evening. The bad news was that among the unmasked were women with young children.

4. Good question

One thing for sure, the protesters are NOT republicans, and they are not going to be voting for trump, that should make all republicans running for election scared.

Also trumps lack of leadership, constant lies, and lack of compassion are not going to help him or the republican running in local, state, and national elections. Anyone who has supported trump is going to have problems unless their running in deep red states.

5. Yes.

With emphasis on “try”. But they will try. Expect massive voter suppression efforts in battleground states, attempts to challenge or delegitimize Democratic votes. It’s gonna be ugly. Be prepared to fight for this one. They certainly will be.

6. Does a bear shit in the woods ???

The republican party no longer exists.

The GOP no longer exists.

They are the party of Trump.

They are EVIL.

They are the greatest threat this country has ever faced.

10. All but guaranteed.

Just a gut, but it wouldn't surpise me if Republicans have Nazi nerds working 24/7 on legal and constitutional scenarios that would hand Trump a second term even with loosing the popular and Electoral Collage counts. It may not even get that far with voter suppression or if a November election is called off through some machination. Debbie Downer I know, but this is going to be a haaaaaaard election with no overnight outcome. The minority will fight tooth and nail and burn it all down if they have to. It's what they want. It's what they've signaled. Difficult times ahead.

11. It will be interesting to see if Trump or Biden get a "bump" in polling the next few days.

12. I do not think that the GOP will even try. Trump will lose so big that will be impossible to do that

Every long term professional knows that. So many people are turned off by Trump I don't think it will be close enough to .."steal" Today..100,000 deaths. November 150,000 or more?..Trump, I think (and I have said this before) will lose every state. Also, very normal, usual republican voters will go with Biden. Trump is too much a liar and a crook..and a killer too

...Remember: "It will be over with 5 cases and soon be gone"
