Lets put this in perspective. It's historically very hard to win against an incumbent.

Yes, we didn't get the landslide we wanted. But Biden is going to win as a challenger. Trump is going down in history as one of the very few 1 term presidents.

1. 23 presidents didn't serve 2 full terms. About half of them.

Some of them died in office or chose not to seek re-election rather face a defeat at the ballot box, but still, one-term presidencies are not rare.

We've had 4 two-termers since 1980 (Reagan, Clinton, shrub, Obama) that is unusual in that timespan.

4. You are not wrong. I still don't understand how Trump can improve his numbers so much.

But I just wanted to look at the bright side.

5. It's hard to figure but 1/2 of the country thinks

the other half is crazy on both sides.

8. Tell me about it! Where did these mysterious Trump votes come from?

I'm in Florida. The numbers out of Florida with Trump getting over a million votes more than he got in 2016 in Florida completely stomps me.

7. Good point...

But Trump also will go down in history as one of the worst US presidents...
