How do you think Trump will react after the election if he loses?

For the life of me, I can't imagine him giving a gracious concession speech to a Democrat. If the election is at all close, he'll certainly contest it and ask for recount after recount. On the other hand, I doubt if he'd try to usurp the presidency if he lost by a lot.

What do you think trump will do or say on November 4, 2020?

1. If his polling keeps dropping

He may not make it to the election. In any case, it will be graceless, self-pitying and without humility.

40. My first thought was how I've been wondering why

Scaramucci keeps mentioning that trump will be out in March ? We should have a nominee by then and head to head polls? Court actions may conclude? Or is he just pulling March out of his ass?

6. Our election systems are not secured, thanks to Mitch McConnell & the GOP...

Therefore I believe a massive GOTV effort is needed on our part -- and the results will still appear to be "close."

Trump has not a drop of graciousness in him. His own father raised him to believe there are only two kinds of people in the world: winners and losers, and that it does not matter how brutally you win. If he has not been impeached and removed, I now fear he will not go quietly, but will try to cause violence among his faithful cultists.

13. He will rage at the entire country for refusing to appreciate his "stable genius."

Which causes me the most worry. When the end is finally in sight, failed despots tend to lash out with rage at the very country and citizens he previously manipulated.

An extreme example: Germany in April 1945, where an entire country was punished with further death and destruction for “failing” to win victories (against crushing superior forces) for its “savior.”

What is a neutered Trump capable of?

Last edited Thu Sep 12, 2019, 11:55 AM - Edit history (1)

What happens in Republican-controlled states that might go blue. If he cries "stolen election", and the base goes along with it, they could try to change the rules on how the state chooses it's electors and, and then choose Trump-supporting electors instead.

All of this could technically be legal, unless It goes against a rule in the state's constitution or other state laws (they could always try to the change the law though).

Having seen what Republican legislatures have done in North Carolina and Wisconsin, I have no doubt that they would try something like that if there are not any existing laws prohibiting them.

he finds out what has happened.

Then, there will be court case after court case, challenging every single state election, until he manages to get it to the Supreme Court, which is as likely as not to declare him the winner as it did W.

At very least, a new president won't be seated by the end of January because he'll still be challenging it.

I have zero doubt of this.

But in private all alone he will feel relieved. He never wanted to be president and have all this responsibility, he is just playing a power game and using presidency to get more money.

He will pretend to be upset and his tweets will show that, but it won’t be true, he wants to go back to his life.

And he will have his Attorney General look into it.

He will not immediately say that he is not going to leave office. He will create a narrative over the few weeks before the new President is to take office, then about 3 days before the new President is to be sworn in, he will announce that he is not going to leave the job until the questions are cleared up about the "voter fraud" and the "illegal voting". He will say he is ready to leave whenever the matter is cleared up but the matter will never be cleared up.
