Success excuses a lot of sin

Which is why the line of attack that Trump is a broke failure cuts deep.

Yeah it may not convince braindead Trumpers but Dump can't win with just them. Some of the recent weakly attached Biden supporters (the reason why Biden is slowly rising in the polls) can latch onto Dump being a failure as a reason to be more secure in their support of Biden. At this point Biden just needs to hold the vote share and avoid anyone flip flopping back to Dump.

A constant reminder between now and election day on just how much of a failure Dump is will tend to suppress his base's turnout. Many of them have already decided against mail in voting. So why should they stand out in lines on election day to vote for a complete loser and failure? I am not saying it is going to cut it by 50% or even 10% but elections are won and lost on the margin. Could 1% feel stupid, even though they will never admit it to anyone, and simply not vote for a failure. I think so.

So I think Trump being a failure is even more powerful than Trump being a cheat. Nobody respects a failure and a loser.

I told you all along that Trump was flat broke. Just because he’s been living on a line of credit doesn’t mean he’s not broke. Trump’s net worth is deeply negative, and therefore less than yours or mine. He’s not a billionaire, a millionaire, or a thousandaire. His ass is broke.
