And the rest of the country is also concerned about what States like Iowa & New Hampshire are doing. The "normal" thinking people see Mr. Trump for what he is, a "threat to our way of democratic life in America", while those caught up in the Trump Cult are defending them simply to try and "save face"  for supporting Trump in the first place or to emphasize their displeasure with the current administration, because Republicans on a whole want to support a possible Trump dictatorship over democratic rule in this Nation.

Here's an excerpt from an AP News piece that the ECNA was interviewed for in California.

One side fears what Trump has said he will do if he wins, while the other side is responding to the fear being created in a press & social media ecosystem.

For some, the danger is more than Trump’s statements and concern over how he might turn toward authoritarianism. It also is what’s happening in the states and courts, where political gerrymandering and threats to voting rights are continuing, as are measures that limit people’s ability to vote easily, such as reducing drop box locations for mail-in ballots and tightening voter identification requirements.

“Look at all the roadblocks that have been put up to keep people, especially people of color, from being able to vote,” said Pamela Williams, 75, of New York City, who identifies as a Democrat. “That isn’t democracy.”

Douglas Kucmerowski, 67, an independent who lives in the Finger Lakes region of New York, is concerned over those state-level actions and the continued use of the Electoral College, which can allow someone to be president even if they lose the popular vote.

He also questions the state of the nation’s democracy when a large proportion of the country supports a candidate facing multiple criminal charges who has spoken about pursuing retribution and using the military domestically, among other things.

Trump also has lied about the outcome of the 2020 election, which has been affirmed by multiple reviews in the battleground states where he disputed his loss, and called his supporters to a Washington rally before they stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, in a violent attempt to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s win.

That candidate, in any other age, probably would have been ruled out. But for some reason, in this society, he’s one of the best choices,” Kucmerowski said. “If this country is that confused that they can’t tell the difference between right and wrong and ex-presidents making statements that on day one he will be a dictator, doesn’t anybody care about day two or three or four when he’s still a dictator?”

The poll of 1,074 adults was conducted Nov. 30 through Dec. 4, 2023, using a sample drawn from NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak Panel, which is designed to be representative of the U.S. population. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4.0 percentage points.

All this information and voting before it was announced that Trump has been fined $85M. I wonder how he's going to squirm out of that?

Will have to sell that tacky place he has in Florida, you know, the one with everything painted in fake gold?

How will he deal with all the other 91 lawsuits coming his way? He certainly won't have time for any presidential duties.

I see interesting days ahead.

Recent Primary voting in New Hampshire (population of 1.4 million) had about 23% of the overall State population voting and Nikki Haley was within single digits of Heir Trump, and gained 9 delegates to 12 for Trump... hardly a "big win" as some have stated in the Press.

And with Democrats & Republicans in the "minority" party to New Hampshire's large Independent Party, I think there's still hope that many will come out to cast their votes to hand Mr Trump his SECOND LOSS to President Biden

With 3% of the vote not counted, and the fact that record numbers voted this Primary, Haley held her own, and showed the rest of the country that Trump hasn't got "anything in the bag" when it comes to the 2024 election.

Perhaps the next Primary in South Carolina, and Super Tuesday voting, will bring an end to the Trump Cult, who somehow believe impeccable character & honesty don't matter when it comes to who should be watching over  "the free world". These folks believe Trump is a victim, and always tells the truth, despite ample evidence to the contrary.

Facts & Truth don't seem to matter to Trump voters, because they don't matter to the leader of their cult, Heir Trump fails the fact-checking internet apps on any given day.

The FACTS are simple, and the TRUTH is clear: Mr Trump is saying he's the candidate with only 32 of the 1215 delegates NEEDED to be called the winner.

Nikki Haley was right to stay the course, there are 50 Republican Delegates available in South Carolina, and Democrats, Republicans, & Independent voters can pick which Primary to vote in, only one vote allowed. Democrats caucus February 3, while Republicans can vote on February 24, a Saturday.

For the next month we will probably see the best of Nikki Haley and the absolute WORST from Mr Trump, who will try name-calling & bully tactics to win over his weak-minded supporters, and those living in rural America watching FOX TV, because it's the ONLY station available. It's sad to watch, and believe me, we see it everyday here in central NY.

And what can be said about that "other" candidate, the one from Florida who's head is so far up Trump's ass it hard to tell the two apart?

It appears Mr DeSantis finally figured out that America is "not Florida", and he is NOT popular ANYWHERE. Most may see Ron D. as the ONLY State Governor who's embracing Mr Trump, and alao brown-nosing the disgraced, former president, in hopes of landing some job on Trump's future Insurrection Team. Trump is 44th on the list of Best American Presidents, the list only has 45 names so I'll let that fact sink in... DeSantis should know better but "blind ambition" will be his defense in years to come.

You would think that the Republican Party would figure out that supporting a LOSER from the LAST presidential election isn't the best plan, but most are still afraid of the neighborhood "bully", and don't want to become the next target of Heir Trump.
