But the polls tell me Biden is up 15 on Trump!
Excluding the polls, is there any evidence Joe Biden is winning this election?
Just entertain the possibility, for one second, that the Almighty Polls are either wrong or rigged, and that we cannot trust what they say. Who do you think is winning this election based on the general feel of the country right now?
People aren’t stupid. They see the collective insanity of the left. They see the images of what’s happening in Portland, even if the media tries to hide them:

No matter what the media tries to say, no matter how much they try to shift the narrative to “TRUMP’S SECRET FASCIST POLICE!” most Americans understand what’s going on.
At the most basic level, most Americans understand that Joe Biden = Antifa, Joe Biden = BLM, Joe Biden = endless lockdowns.
Is there any indication that “the middle”–those few remaining Americans who are persuadable every four years, who vote mostly based on intuition and gut, who are not wedded to any one political party, and who tend to instinctively reject extreme behavior and disruption–are flocking to the left?
I just don’t see it–outside of the polls.
The country has changed. People don’t mindlessly believe the media anymore. Maybe 25-30 years ago, people would have believed the media’s lies about coronavirus, police brutality, white privilege, systemic racism, Antifa and the “mostly peaceful protests”, and Trump would be toast.
But if people still believed the media, then Trump would not have even been elected back in 2016.
I highly doubt the media’s reputation has improved over the past five years. If anything, it has gotten significantly worse.
People just don’t believe the media anymore. They don’t believe it’s Trump’s fault that the economy is in the toilet. They don’t believe the virus is his fault. And they don’t think he’s the reason unarmed black people are killed by police.
On top of that, most normal Americans are 100% in favor of hardass federal agents crackin’ Antifa skulls on the streets of Portland. Most Americans do not like seeing a major American city fall into chaos and anarchy. They want to see order restored.
I also don’t see 2016 Trump voters abandoning him. They already knew about his Twitter account back then. “His tweets” are not going to push people towards Biden.
In 2016, people voted for Donald Trump because they felt like America was at the point of no return. They could sense the hard left turn the Democratic Party had taken, and knew that if the Democrats held the White House for another four years, this country would be finished. This view was best summarized in “The Flight 93 Election“:
“The election of 2016 is a test—in my view, the final test—of whether there is any virtù left in what used to be the core of the American nation. If they cannot rouse themselves simply to vote for the first candidate in a generation who pledges to advance their interests, and to vote against the one who openly boasts that she will do the opposite (a million more Syrians, anyone?), then they are doomed. They may not deserve the fate that will befall them, but they will suffer it regardless.”
Nothing has materially changed since 2016. Trump has made some progress, to be sure, but the Cabal is not anywhere close to being defeated. We are not out of the woods by any stretch. And nobody who voted for Trump in 2016 has gotten cold feet between then and now. They haven’t changed their minds and now think Trump is the biggest threat to America. They are still with Trump.
I have not yet seen one good case made that Trump has lost a lot of his 2016 supporters. I am not buying that he’s lost many of his 2016 supporters because of “his tweets.” He was tweeting in 2016 and it didn’t deter people from supporting him.
If anything, Trump has only gained support since 2016. This is what Elon Musk is talking about: the insanity of the left is turning lots of people into Trump voters by default.
Trump was portrayed as dangerous and crazy during the 2016 election. As President he’s benefited because the media set the bar so low for him with its hyperbolic and outlandish coverage of him. Most of the people who couldn’t bring themselves to vote for Trump in 2016 are now saying, “This guy wasn’t nearly as bad as they said he’d be.”
The left is losing the middle. Trump is the one that wants kids back to school next month. He’s the one that wants the rioting to end.
He’s the “normal” candidate.
The Democrats are asking you to vote for an obviously senile old man who has been locked in his basement for the past four months because his handlers know the less the public sees of him the better. The Democrats are asking for you to vote for a figurehead candidate who will, from day one, be controlled by the most radical leftists imaginable, who are seeking nothing less than the complete dismantling of America as we know it.
The Democrats are asking you to sympathize with the rioters. They’re asking you to defund the police. They’re asking you to endorse open and explicit anti-white racism. They’re asking you to accept the economic suicide of your country over a virus that has killed 0.0004% of Americans.
They’re asking you to support a party that is now run by and for crazy people.
It’s just not gonna happen, no matter how much the polls are trying to say it is. Elon Musk just said what most of us know intuitively.
