Trump's biggest problem now is there are a lot of people now wondering if democracy matters.

The only way to see if it does, is to vote against Trump and see if it's really true that your vote matters.

I think a lot of usually not caring people will vote against him just to see what happens.

1. In 2016

a lot of usually not caring people voted for Trump just to see what would happen.

Letís hope they donít do it again.

3. I would think it works the opposite way...

I could see people thinking "Oh, what the hell, my vote isn't going to count anyway" and stay home. In fact, I think that's a large part of 45's bluster about not accepting the outcome -- to depress turnout by making opponents convinced that voting serves no purpose, because, even if Biden wins, Trump will find a way to stay in power.

4. I don't think people do that.

There are always tons of measures and propositions on ballots that are very important to us.

If a person is so stupid to not vote based on margins, then they are probably a repug. I don't know ANY Dems who have ever not voted because a candidate is ahead. And I am in Calif where we KNOW the Dem will win.
