Re: POTUS-DONALD TRUMP-and U.S. Politics catch-all

I reckon it's in the Dems best interest not to impeach him. Let him try and run in 2024, either as a Republican or an independent. Works out for them either way. I agree. They won't convict him so it's a waste of time anyway. Is it a waste? It's incumbent upon the Democrats to crush this stain on h...

True. The numbers are just numbers at this stage. They just give you a direction. Anyone remember being in awe of the numbers from Italy back in Feb?

Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

I'd imagine we have peaked in cases already. The subsequent restrictions will start to bring the numbers down. Any increases we see in daily numbers will be backlog I guess. Deaths and hospitalizations? Probably a different story.

Re: POTUS-DONALD TRUMP-and U.S. Politics catch-all

The reason I am enjoying this result is that it "might" show Republicans that the benefits of Trump are being outweighed by the negatives. I'm sure right now they'd prefer to go back to a more passive and disinterested voter population.

Fonzee, do you think the Republicans will double down now on being Trump-like (for want of a better term)? He has obviously built up a massive and active base for them but at the same time he seems to have activated an even larger anti-Trump turnout. Seems to be pushing away the more moderate conser...
