I cannot shake the feeling of fear of what could happen down the stretch in this tumultuous election season.
What might that entail?
It would entail Donald Trump finding a way to cobble together yet another Electoral College victory while collecting as many as 5 million or maybe 6 million actual votes than Joe Biden.
You know the saying about “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” Is it possible that we could be fooled a second time by this carnival barker/con man/charlatan?
I suppose anything is possible.
I see the polls each day. I thought I could ignore them. I cannot resist the temptation. They tell me Biden is doing damn near everything right. The polls were also favorable four years ago for Hillary Clinton; it didn’t work out that way.
Trump’s record is hideous. Across the board he has mismanaged our international alliances, our international agreements, the response to the COVID pandemic, the environment, race relations.
I want him out of the White House. I want him gone from the public stage. I want to restore the norms of dignity and decency and decorum to the presidency.
Biden promises to do that. I believe him. I disbelieve everything that comes from Donald Trump.
I also fear that Trump has one more nasty trick up his sleeve.
Oh, how I want him defeated.
