11. The "underperforming" meme is highly overrated.

There's no link between the primaries and the GE. Never has been. It's a myth that won't die.

Trump, for example, isn't going to win Minnesota by 35%. He's not going to win Minnesota at all.

Current votes for Trump in MN: 232,855 votes
Current votes for Biden in MN: 171,274 votes

Almost identical claims were made in 2016. Trump is only getting 30-35% in some states. Trump lost 15 primaries. Half the party is going to abandon him. All the same nonsense.

None of it mattered because there's no link. When November rolls around, Rs will do what they always do, support the R candidate.

We need to stop underestimating Trump, and all of this bullshit about him underperforming is doing exactly that.
