Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 13, 2020

According to a recent Morning Consult poll, Mr. Trump's approval rating among voters over the age of 65 dropped 20 points between March and the end of April, making seniors more critical of the president's performance than any other age group aside from 18- to 29-year-olds. Much of that decline seems directly related to the virus, which so far has posed a far more serious health threat to older people. "The people my age, we have become dispensable," says Wendy Penk, a lifelong Republican in her 60s from Charlotte, North Carolina.

The crisis "has just confirmed how incompetent [President Trump] is - and how uncaring he is for others," says [Mississippi Republican Ken] Holmes. He's planning to vote for Biden in November, the first time he's ever voted for a Democrat, he says.

The Christian Science Monitor "fake BS?"
And what is "fake BS" even mean? It's one or the other.
Or the double negative means that it's true.

At any rate the article is solid, Trump's concern is palpable.

"Trump's approval rating among voters over the age of 65 dropped 20 points between March and the end of April"

People don't like being told they're expendable and acceptable losses in a war to get the old economy running.

Confused, yes I am, the poster of this thread isn't identified, now I see this site has gone so far as to let the select group of people post threads and the reader has to guess who posted it. Well, at least I know one of the unidentified posters are. Possibly 2.

Better late than never, I supposed.

It's pretty sickening, though, to see the abject selfishness on display.

Abusive language would be something like "go f**k yourself, you jack**! You're no-one to demand intellectual thinkers respond to you.. You're a f**king idiot!"

That would be closer to abusive language.

I though an example might be helpful.

So, you consider yourself to be an intellectual? Now that is funny!

I am a senior citizen and everyone I know or that I would consider associating with hates Trump with a passion. Republican Party is a death cult.

That post was just as stupid as anything Crassus posts. We raised the millenials, fed the millenials, many of us still have millenials living in our homes, eating our food. Turning a class war into a generational conflict is the action of an idiot, I've always thought you were smarter than that JPW. Guess I was wrong.

Danni, I've seen you make this point many times over the years. Those two have a high degree of overlap as the people with the most money generally are much older than those who do not.

The class conflict, similar to how Lee Atwater described the racial conflict decades ago, allows for the fact that some of their group will necessarily fall victim to the efforts against the other, and if anything, serves as cover to disprove what is actually going on.

They may 'dump Trump'. That doesn't necessarily translate to votes for Biden. I'd have to find it again; I saw a poll the other day where Trump was still very competitive in battleground states. If Dems don't learn how to play the game and win the electoral college, they're still going to lose.

I know the virus is scary, but Biden is going to have to get out of his basement soon. Or perhaps Dems are too afraid to let him speak off script.

Americans have elected Presidents who never left their houses before.

Presidential candidates not only sat home but didn't even campaign before 1840. Look it up.

So there is precedence.

And the technology has improved a bit since then.

Hillary lost the election because she failed to visit Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. I guarantee you, Trump will be visiting every place he thinks he can strip electoral votes... Just saying.

Those over 65 find it difficult to mount Trump's sacrificial altar. Many find it difficult to mount anything.

I agree. The results of Trumpy acting all Trumpy is not entirely up to Trumpy. The virus don't care.

Wisconsonians pretending there is no virus and Trump throwing a Trumpy rally in Wisconsin with the virus on the loose is an explosive combination. That should prove if this so called "pandemic" is real or not! We would have to wait two weeks for full results. Sorry. Most of us will forget by then and not make the connection. But, I look forward to the experiment and hope not too many Americans have to die for our dear deplorables to find out what New Yorkers already know.

Me Just saying.

Wisconsin is the grand experiment that we should all be paying close attention to over the next 2-6 weeks. Wasn't it nice of them to volunteer to be the nations guinea pigs?

All I know is I'm not rich and I have been a Democrat all my life, with reverence for FDR and his policies. The rich have gotten the right to buy politics from our corrupt Supreme Court since Reagan. With this Pandemic today we will have to raise taxes on wealth again like FDR did in his day, we won't have any choice about that but we need to also remember that FDR protected the gains he made on a social safety net even during WWII. We can't let the wealthy cut things just because of the Pandemic, no we have to raise the taxes we need to pay for them. And I will reiterate, we have a class war, not a generational war. I would never do anything to harm the younger generations, I want to do more for them and my kids feel the same way towards my own generation.

Which "numbers"?

The number of dead Americans is 87,000 today.

That IS a pretty high number. (Sad!)

Is that the number you are thinking of?

Still trying to figure out which numbers.

Maybe you are thinking of the unemployment numbers. You loved to harp on those numbers when Obama was President and we were still recovering from the Bush Error.

The Unemployment numbers are now the highest since the Great Depression.

Those numbers?
