If they're typing first and last names instead of just last, then they could conceivably get only one if they never filled in the other answer. Maybe they forgot about the other one, or got interrupted before they finished the quiz (happens to me all the time).

I will never be president. I wasn't born rich and am too private and not narcissistic enough to consent to be on a reality TV show, so the fact that I have no relevant experience would be an impediment to me obtaining elected office in a way that it was not for Trump. However, if I was president, I would be 1000x better at it than Trump is. And I'm guessing Shade would do a better job, too. It's hard to imagine anyone doing worse.

Here's a relevant quote: 'People happy with the results argue the system is working fine -- of course they do. Their team won. But government isn't a sport where a singular "winner" must be determined. It's a system to make rules that everyone follows and so, we need a system where everyone can agree the process is fair even if the results don't go in their favour. If you support a system that disenfranchises people you don't like and turbo-franchises people you do - then it doesn't look like you support representative democracy, it looks like you support a kind of dictatorship lite.' That's CGP Grey. If you're upset with how the election turned out, *tough luck*. There's a set of rules for how an election works and, no matter how stupid the rules are, Trump used them to garner a majority of electoral college. Logically, he is the president. He isn't a good president? Well, neither were any of the others, according to (about) half of all people. At least in most cases. Deal with it.

Wilson had a Ph.D. in political science. Obama, Roosevelt, Roosevelt, Nixon, Ford, Hayes, and Clinton all had law degrees. Eisenhower had a degree from West Point and graduate degrees from three Army Colleges. Carter took post-grad courses in Nuclear Physics. JFK had a Master's from Stanford. I think it is safe to say that Trump is not the smartest or most highly educated president in history.

Using a standard analysis of the president's vocabulary in speeches, and an impartial system developed for the military decades ago, it was determined that Donald Trump had about a 4th grade vocabulary, the lowest of any president in history.

People who are classified as mentally retarded often are able to function at up to a 6th grade level.
+3
Level 58
Dec 22, 2019
I think it's safe to say that Trump is mentally incapacitated. I don't have the credentials to officially diagnose him with a disorder but when you have a President who thinks little is spelled "liddle," thinks modern alliances are based on the Normandy landings, and writes insults on Twitter at 3 AM in all caps, it's safe to say that the President is not just dumb but mentally unfit. Impeachment's definitely making his meltdown worse.

Level 79
Dec 23, 2019
Trump has textbook malignant narcissistic personality disorder. That couldn't be any more clear. He also is profoundly, catastrophically ignorant about virtually every subject. This is also perfectly clear. It's very clear that he has issues with his temperament and emotional maturity. He definitely has antisocial personality disorder.
^- definite. speculative -v
He probably has a very low IQ. He might have attention deficit disorder. He displays some symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder. There is some evidence that he is borderline illiterate. He is showing some signs of dementia. He is probably a psychopath or at least a sociopath. Some would classify him as a pedophile or ephebophile; personally I would not, though he is a creep and a serial sex offender. He might be bipolar. He might be dyslexic. And personally I think there's a very good chance that he could be classified as intellectually disabled or mentally retarded.

The smaller the state the more representation they have per capita. Each state gets 2 guaranteed seats in the electoral college no matter the size. Those 2 seats become more valuable when the population is smaller - so the smaller the state the more representation they get. Bigger states are under-represented.

Jan 12, 2018
For all of you guys ranting on about the electoral college and how the election should be decided on the popular vote, there's a reason we have the electoral college. This reason is so other states with lower populations (ex: Wyoming, the Dakotas, Montana) can have a say in the voting. Our government is a republic, so everyone has a say. If the elections were decided on the popular vote, the election would be decided only in the states with a large population such as California, New York, Texas, and Florida. So that would basically ruin the point of our government and start a tyranny.
+7
Level 79
Mar 1, 2018
Every ONE has a say? That doesn't make any sense when the ONEs from Wyoming have 3.6x the voting power as the ONEs from California. We've moved past the idea that the United States is a collection of states with competing interests. We're all one country. The only reason Republicans want to disenfranchise people so much or reduce their voting power is because they know that they can't possibly win if the will of the people was accurately represented. They NEED things like gerrymandering, illegal voter purging and voter registration restrictions, and the electoral college to hold on to power. If you're worried about tyranny look to those who represent a minority and are imposing their will on the majority, not the majority who have no power.

I majored in this in college. It is you who needs better sources. For better or worse, the Founders were highly skeptical of simple majority rule because many of them were classicists and did not want us to end up as another Athens, where one demagogue could sway the masses and create a tyrannical majority of mob rule. I'm not saying they would have been happy with the results the Electoral College has given us, but it was their belief that by having specially chosen electors, they could insulate the government somewhat from a fickle, easily swayed populace. Problem is they underestimated how well the parties would learn to game the system.

Dec 26, 2018
I need don't any better sources, dipstick. I know what you said. I also am talking about what the electoral college IS, not what it was envisioned to be. Since the electoral college does not function the way it was intended and almost all electors simply vote the way the popular vote in their state goes, the relevant part of it that we're left with is that states with smaller populations end up with disproportionately more voting power. This is not and never was intended to be a protection against tyranny or mob rule. This (the only relevant) part of the EC was meant as a compromise to get less populous states on board with the whole process. It is antiquated and unnecessary today.

Minus Polk the run of 8 presidents before Lincoln are also not well known amongst Americans. They were all forgettable. Most of them exercised little power (Congress was really in control of the country at the time). A few of them died a short while in to their terms in office. One was not even elected. And all are ranked among the worst presidents in US history, though Trump has got them beat in that category according to the latest polls.

I've said this before: given the mental acumen of some posters on this site the rules against dirty words and ad hominem attacks are onerous and unfair.
The Mueller investigation created a legal framework whereby Mueller's team could find Trump either "not guilty" or "not not guilty." If you read the actual report they make it clear that they are finding Trump "not not guilty." The evidence is there, but they left it up to Congress to do anything about it. Also, Mueller makes it clear that since COLLUSION is not a legal term in the United States what was being investigated was criminal obstruction of justice and criminal conspiracy, things for which enormous amounts of evidence are detailed over the 400 pages, and part of why almost everyone in the Trump administration and campaign is currently either in jail, awaiting sentencing, making plea deals or under investigation.

Trump should have been removed from office two years ago, and I think it's impossible, from an ethical standpoint, to not impeach him now as, if his behavior in office is not worthy of impeachment, then honestly what would be? ...at the same time this late in to his first term and I think the Democrats might actually be better off just running out the clock. Trump in 2020 will be easier to beat than Mike Pence or anyone else the Republicans run. I used to say that Trump was the only candidate they could have run that could lose to Hillary Clinton, if not for the fact that Hillary Clinton was the only candidate the Dems could run that could lose to Trump.

Politics aside, though, he should be removed as soon as possible. No telling what damage he could do with even one more year in office. It's already going to take generations to repair what's been done.

I think that you're right that it would be a mistake to pick Biden over some of the other candidates that will more energize and excite the Democratic base. But at the same time, I think Biden would crush Trump in the general election in 2020 all the same. He and Clinton might have similar policy ideas, but he is a much less flawed and polarizing candidate.

P.S. I think Warren and Sanders would crush Trump in a general election, as well.

I'm going out on a limb as someone from far away. But if I had to bet, I'd say that Trump will crush Biden and that he has decent chances to defeat even Warren. His base of fans is in the minority relative to the total population, but they will all be there on Election Day. What's needed to counter that is a radical shift - not just in policies, but even more so in strategy and rhetoric. It will be interesting to go back to this in one year's time.

I think and hope sincerely that you are wrong. I don't think that I am being naive or out-of-touch. Back in 2015 I was one of the few who was doubtful about Hillary's chances vs Trump. You are right that the minority of people in the US who are big Trump fans are loyal to a fault- how they remain so completely oblivious to *any* factual information is beyond me- but I also think that they will not be as passionate to get to the polls in 2020. A lot of Trump voters were going to vote because they despised Hillary Clinton. Right wing media had been painting her as the antichrist since the 1990s. People, like my dad, had a visceral reaction just to hearing her name or seeing her face. They were voting against Hillary often more than they were voting for Trump. Nobody hates Joe Biden that much. And the fact that Trump has been a complete and total disaster as president might encourage some small percentage of them to just stay home. Even a small number would have cost him 2016.

I hope you're right, kal, but I doubt it. I think the people who voted for Trump the first time have spent all their mental energy since trying to defend their decision, and they've dug their heels in so deep that there is no convincing them otherwise. A lot of them will vote for him against just to "stick it to the liberals." I think Warren has the best skill set to beat him, but there is too much misogyny in this country for her to get enough votes. I like Biden, but his campaign has been pretty bad (although Trump's was worse and it didn't stop him). Biden seems slow and anemic these days. Bernie can match Trump's charisma, and he's only about a billion times smarter and more authentic. But his age is a concern. Nonetheless, I think, all things considered, Bernie is the surest best to beat Trump. Biden is second, in my view.

I don't understand why people believe that a woman can't get enough votes to be president. That's absurd. Hillary Clinton already got more votes than Trump in 2016, and she's awful. Run a *good* female candidate for president, in either party, and she could coast to victory.

Level 58
Feb 20, 2020
I actually think that Trump will be difficult to beat--not impossible, but he's had a streak of good luck in the past few weeks that's entrenched him in power, including his acquittal in the impeachment trial, his rising approval numbers, and the success of the economy (although this is unpredictable and could change in a moment). The Democrats are also completely disorganized right now with the Iowa debacle and a still very divided field. I'm still hopeful that America will come to reject him this year, but the economy often plays a major role in elections and that alone might be enough for him to win a second term.

I wish they would institute mandatory IQ minimums for certain things. Minimum to serve as president should be about 140-150. Minimum to serve on the Supreme Court should be at least 130. Minimum to serve in Congress should be around 115. Minimum to vote should be 105, and you should have to pass a basic test on current events, history, sound epistemology, and rudimentary science. This would solve the Trump problem immediately as his IQ can't possibly be above 85.

Not joking in the slightest. The bad memory of Jim Crow and literacy tests does not make it a bad idea. And in response to "what could go wrong?", I counter with the presidential election of 2016. What HAS gone wrong is far more terrible than your hypothetical what could. The system is catastrophically broken and needs to be fixed. Nobody as dumb as Trump should ever be allowed to hold office. Nobody dumb enough to vote for Trump should ever be allowed to vote. I'm sorry if this offends those of you who fetishize democracy. Worrying about the damage that selective suffrage and office eligibility could do to democracy when we're living through the damage that indiscriminate suffrage and a mentally unfit president has done is like arguing that we shouldn't confiscate a hand grenade from a crowded pre-school classroom on the principle that it's too dangerous to not trust all those in attendance to act responsibly.

As a Dutch person I would like to intervene with the heated discussion that has taken place in this comment section. Whether you like it or not I do not see Trump's presidency as a failure. The economy has grown a lot under Trump's presidency (The market crash happend because of Covid19 and Saudi Russian oil crisis), very low unemployment rate, removing troops from the Middle-East, not started any war , solving migration problems, crime rates have decreased and many more positive things. I think that Trump is doing good. The problem I see with politics in the US is that both the Republican party as the Democratic party are corrupt and rotten to the core and that the people of the US should see this to and just ditch both. Also the electoral college is vastly outdated and should be abolished to remove the now present two party system. This system should just be replaced by a popular vote system so that one party cannot have so easily a majority. 1/2

The presidential seat has to much power and it should be stripped of some so the importance of the election should be focussed on the House and Senate wich should be far more important factors in US-politics.

The people can change it but they wont because they will always say: "It will not work" or "Than the other party will win easliy." But change never came falling out of the air.

power has shifted back and forth between Congress and the Executive branch over the decades.
