I'm a little confused by the conservative logic the virus is going away after the election

I've had numerous of my conservative acquaintances tell me they are convinced Covid-19 is going away after the election.

Do these people actually believe COVID-19 is a worldwide conspiracy to make them look bad?

1. It'll go away (a lot) after Joe gets in to deal with it

Thatís not what they mean of course, but itís the way it will happen.

3. No. It's another projections of theirs.

Remember the South American caravan that magically disappeared the day after midterm from the news?

They just think democrats are making COVID a huge deal for political gain and our attention would be elsewhere after the election. Of course that is completely false.

24. Exactly.

Projection is ALL the cons ever do, thinking everyone is as dishonest as they are.

4. Yes. That's exactly it. They believe, once the election is over, the news will stop talking about it

...and it'll just go away like Trump has said.

6. I suspect it is a weird deep-state-like conspiracy talking point.

But even those who say such things cannot explain what they mean by it in a manner which stands up to the most basic drilling-down, I bet.

7. I have heard this also. They insist everything will suddenly be back to normal after the election

Most likely things will get a lot worse during the winter season.

8. It's part of the "hoax" narrative...

The logic is almost simple. The fake news is promoting the virus stories to get Biden a boost at the polls so he's elected, so after the election is over, no matter who wins apparently, the news will drop the virus story and revert to publishing "real" news.

Or something like that.

9. Yes. Deep down they believe that COVID-19 is political.

Thatís what their leaders have taught them to believe. So, naturally, once the politics go away, it follows that COVID-19 will go away too.

They are tragically deluded. Viruses are NOT political.

10. No logic about it. After the election and when it still rages, watch them blame Joe Biden

For not doing enough about the ~250,000 death and 9 million infected.

13. They imagine a magnification of deaths & cases & severity will stop being magnified because



... stop being magnified because (given their belief it is a hoax) both sides will have no interest in magnifying it.

If it is the hoax (flu magnified) they claim, then tRump was always right to downplay it and would continue to do so after winning.

If Biden wins, then (supposing it is the flu magnified), he supposedly won't have to keep up the pretense.

Except it is not a pretense, of course.

17. Yes, I have heard and read of it more than once.


The Covid narrative is simply a hoax meant to bring Trump down, and in November if Trump wins it will be dropped because it is no longer useful. Vice versa, if Joe wins.

20. Yes and no. They are not deep thinkers.

They don't read news from around the world - the US IS their entire world. So they believe the numbers are a gigantic "lamestream" media - and democratic hype. So - the hype is only needed until Nov 3, and will magically disappear after that.

It's as simple as that.

21. I'm confused by all conservative logic.

Actually just like conservative compassion, conservative logic is an oxymoron........

Since Russia probably started this conspiracy theory and considering their horrible stats on COVID-19, I wonder if they propose their outbreak will go away after our election as well.

23. They don't actually think it will go away.

They're trying to make low-info voters think it is being blown out of proportion or is a media / Democratic hoax. They know it is a major threat but are trying to downplay it so folks don't focus on Trump's mismanagement of the pandemic.
