Could Supreme Court rebukes of Trump policy cost him critical support from white evangelical voters?
‚ÄúThis has definitely introduced doubt,‚ÄĚ said the Rev. Rob Schenck, a prominent former evangelical activist. ‚ÄúIt kind of takes away the one thing that gives him an edge with that type of evangelical voter, a skeptical evangelical voter, a less certain one.‚ÄĚ
There are more than four months to go until the general election, and other significant decisions on issues such as abortion and religious discrimination are expected in coming days. But questions are bubbling whether that disenchantment undermines support for the president among his most steadfast backers....
Is this a news story or just wishful thinking on the part of the Democrat Party? (oops, it does say Yahoo News but you know 99 percent of all journalists are Democrats, so it might as well be the same. Maybe some REpublicans are thinking the same thing--didn't we vote R because everyone said the Senate needs to be in their control to get conservative judges on the Supreme Court? But, when you consider what the Election Day choice is...either Obama's VP Biden, or President TRump, then you see it's an easy choice. All the unrest these days have only made things harder for Dems. There is no way a large portion of the American 'body politic' are going to vote for Dems who are sponsoring all the unrest today. In fact, I think more of the Silent Majority--the large portion of the population who do not register to vote or bother to vote---will come out strong for President Trump. Just ask the public--do you want more unrest, more laws passed by Congress that will defund your local police, unleashing a crime wave that only Mexico and Venezuela are dealing with.

He needs someone who can help him govern. He needs someone who can make sure that there is no gigantic civil war between moderates and people on the left within his administration.
He needs somebody who maybe can take over on a moment's notice. And so I would focus on that. Now, are there women color who can do that? Obviously. Maybe Mayor Bottoms. I don't know. I think there's a ‚ÄĒ there's a lot of people who could fit that bill.
And so I think he has a lot of great options. But I just would say it's about governing, not about running.

Actually, Adriel, a Democrat has a very good chance of winning the Presidency. Many of Trump supporters voted for him as a joke. Many of those voters in 2016 now realize that the joke was on them--and they are not happy about it ‚ĚóūüĎć
In the recent UK elections which Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party won, many Labour party voters voted for Boris. This was as much a surprise to Boris as it was to the Labour Party who are now licking their wounds and looking deep at their political heart with a view to change things.
A descriptive word for voters is "Fickle"
As with the last US election which Donald Won we could say that the American voters proved somewhat fickle too. I think even Donald was surprised that he won. == Populism???
This years elections should be interesting to say the least. Democrats will be pushing perhaps even harder than they ever have; - To prevent being 'Trumped' yet again!!
However Biden doesn't appear to be of the right material for the job!!
So! Four more years???? (The world will give an audible groan).

With the typical mindlessness of the Democrat opposition, who else would they vote for? Biden?
