I just don’t see why DeSantis is still in the race. In Trump’s mind, at least, the general election campaign has begun and DeStantis continues to sink in the polls.
I continue to feel very depressed about what’s going on politically in the United States. At least with a DeSantis presidency, the possibility that we would have a civil war or revolution would be far lower than it would be with a Trump presidency. Trump is such a chaos agent that he could, unto himself, cause either a civil war (if he loses) or a revolution (if he wins.)
We’ve officially entered a moment in time when we’re careening towards a very fucking dark moment in our nation’s history. This is it, whatever “it” is going to be. I just don’t see us punting our severe political problems down the road another four years.
All macro metrics point towards a “put up or shut up” moment for both sides of the political equation.
But anyway. The plan on the part of DeSantis to be more Trump Than Trump obviously isn’t working. It will be interesting to see if he makes it past Thanksgiving the way things are going.
