They love me!
They voted for me in YUGE numbers!
I still say this is why Trump lost the 2020 election. In the 2016 election, he had the benefit of running against Hillary Clinton who was even more disliked by Independents and he wasn’t running on his record. Gary Johnson and Jill Stein also sucked up the protest vote in 2016. Joe Biden was seen as less aggravating and less tiresome than Trump in the 2020 election.
Note: If he runs in 2024 and forces the choice, he will probably win anyway because Independents hate Joe Biden even more now. Someone else who isn’t as toxic could undoubtedly win by a much larger margin. Republican primary voters will almost certainly give the nomination to Blumpf though.
