Note: Over the past couple days, I’ve asked around 20 Virginia Dems, and by far the most common response has been 2-3, with a scattering of 1.5’s and a couple who are feeling like we can make lemonade out of lemons somehow…

    Not only will it be a disaster, but I expect the republicans to so rig the system that they’ll make sure they keep Congress and the White House for the foreseeable future. Voter suppression, gerrymandering, changing the electoral votes to go by Congressional district rather than state-wide, etc. We will become essentially a one-party state like the Russia trump so admires.

    • Definitely a possibility.

    I voted #1: Total disaster

    A friend of mine reminded me that this nation survived a civil war.

    I reminded him that Abe Lincoln, not Trump, was president during the Civil War.

  • Southern Liberal

    I’m optimistic that he fails big time.

    I registered myself here pretty far down into pessimism. But I also believe that we are called — if we can summon the strength — to work toward realizing such better possibilities as may conceivably be possible.
