There is no one in his right mind who was serious about getting reelected that would run this country the way he does.
Ah... there's the rub. As reality sets in, the number of lemmings who thing Trump is in his right mind is dwindling rapidly.
That being said, everyone knows that Trump is bad. The question that nobody knows is, what will Biden do and what will his administration look like? This could be a situation where the guy in office is so bad, that people will vote for the other guy to get the guy in office out, and the new guy wont be good either and the Americans will get screwed over more. Biden has said very little on policy, and thus we really dont know what we are actually getting.
Biden has actually provided more policy positions than most people realize; as the primaries come to an end (and they are still dragging on!) and the nomination convention creates a platform - undoubtedly with much of his direction - we should see more defined policies. For now, just being "not-Trump" is enough to get the support of the majority.
Here are some things that I think we will see in a Biden administration.
1. Wall Street will have an even tighter grip on Policy and executive branch decisions.
It is hard for Wall Street to have a tighter grip than it does now; despite his campaign promises otherwise, Trump has populated his administration with the most desultory list of Wall Street swamp-creatures in the history of the Presidency. They are only outnumbered by the anti-immigration scare-mongers.
2. There will be very little improvements to the health care system. There will be so called tweaks to the Affordable Care Act, but color me skeptical that any of these tweaks will help the people before the powerful.
The new administration should have a chance to "tweak" and improve on the Affordable Care Act - and maybe even approach some version of Medicare-for-all-who-want-it. At least they won't be trying to jerk health-care insurance from under millions of Americans.
3. The Military-Industrial complex will get even stronger, and will lead to us staying in Afghanistan and other wars indefinitely, at the expense of trillions of taxpayer dollars that could be used for other things. (Single Payer healthcare anyone?)
Just like Wall Street's influence, Trump's promises to diminish the influence of the military-industrial complex has been discarded by the wayside after he took office (in all fairness, part of this may be due to the prior-GOP-controlled House, and the GOP-controlled Senate, which would be loathe to lower funding for any projects in their own districts and/or states). In some respects, we need a stronger military voice in the White House; it is no secret that the military, knowing the risks and results of wartimes, is much more reluctant to "pull the trigger" than many of the armchair-generals with no military experience who inhabit Foggy Bottom.
4. Progressives will gain a bit of influence in the House, but because of the Senate, even though the Senate will be democratic controlled, there will be lots of disagreements between the two houses, and Biden will probably lean toward the establishment and give progressives the finger. (Think the Tea Party and the House Freedom Caucus)
Jut like Trump has done - with only a few exceptions - Biden should be able to corral his troops whenever they control both houses of Congress. The difference is Trump represents the most extreme faction of the GOP (it is tempting to say he represents the most extreme faction of the Confederacy... or the most despotic desires of his own mind), whereas Biden sits somewhere in the middle pf his party's political spectrum. It should be, in simple terms, a return to normalcy.
But this almost looks to me like Biden will win because the other guy is so bad. This is exactly how Carter won in 1976, as the watergate fallout was still in effect. Four years later, the republicans won the White House back with a Governor and Former Actor. His name was Ronald Reagan. Could we see this in 2024?
Jimmy Carter didn't win because "the other guy (was) so bad"; he ran against Gerald Ford, a decent, honorable man who had the unfortunate role of completing the term of two dishonored leaders: Nixon and Agnew. Even with that burden, Ford lost by only two percentage points in the popular vote. The electoral vote was the closest since 1916; Carter carried 23 states with 297 electoral votes, while Ford won 27 states with 240 electoral votes.
Most speculation indicates that Biden intends to serve only one term, then hand-off the mantle to (presumable) whomever runs as his Vice President. TV actors need not apply.
