BINGO!  Donald Trump has no challenger.  IF there is even 1 debate it will become evident to the 'uninitiated' that Joe Biden is in stage 3 of Alzheimers.  He'll do ok for a couple of minutes and then OFF HE GOES INTO THE WILD BLUE YONDER...all over the map.

So how did US democracy go so totally off the rails?

All Biden has to do to win is not speak until after the election.

All Trump has to do is let Covid spread to November and refuse to allow postal voting.

I disagree. The way he's handling the current CRISIS, even George McGovern (circa 1972) would beat him.

It went off the rails when Obama was not allowed to get his SC nomination through - and most clearly, when Kavanaugh's confirmation was rammed through.

Kavanaugh was an exceptionally bad choice, rejected by around half of your population - and apparently wide open to blackmail.

That's when I knew that the US was spiralling down to a very dark place.

I am not an American so my opinion carries not an ounce of validity but IMO there is nobody that can create the traction requried to carry off a victory , Biden will not win.

U make a valid point.  Yes it was Mitch McConnell who held up Obama's choice because He (McConnell) had promised that if Obama was elected he would fight him at every turn.  

We got Trump and hence we got Kavanaugh...bad choice I agree.

I may be exaggerating.

But I'm not just delivering a stiff upper lip put down of you from far away - what's happening to your politics is pretty nearly happening to mine.

See this story - https://www.itv.com/news/2020-04-09/priti-patel-accused-of-avoiding-scrutiny-over-home-offices-coronavirus-response/ - our response to the virus is clearly going to be the worst in Europe - but Parliament can't question the people who mismanaged the thing so badly?
