12. At the same time, 17 million names have been purged off of voter rolls -- by Repukes --

so you know the people being purged are from majority-Democratic-voting demographics.

Add in social media misinformation from foreign and domestic sources -- gleefully enabled by the likes of Facebook and Twitter because why? Because it boosts their bottom line and fuck the consequences.

Add in cognitive dissonance of the sort that allows farmers and truckers -- who are getting absolutely fucked over by Trump's trade war -- to be the biggest Trump supporting professions (along with surgeons in the top 3 Trump-loving professions. Narcissistic wankers).

Add in the fact that NO MATTER HOW PSYCHOTIC he behaves on camera or on Twitter, 35-40% of voters have consistently said that THEY WILL VOTE FOR HIM, full stop.

Add in well-established American jingoism and corporate media's obsession with war-leadup and war-coverage, and Trump has an obvious avenue to pursue virtually certain patriotic-guilt-tripping AT A TIME OF HIS CHOOSING (i.e. as much before the election as his aides judge to be most effective).


Is it likely that he will be re-elected? No. But it is TERRIFYINGLY possible. The fact that it is even an uncertainty is a damning indictment of Americans.
