    More like they're afraid that people will hear the truth.

    I have a friend who I am sure is a Democrat. I have several of those types and they know that I am a conservative. It must be my charming personality that keeps me in their good graces.

    Today he told me that polls are showing anyone of the top 3 Democrat candidates to beat President Trump in 2020. He had two questions:

    1. Should President trump step down if the polls say he will lose?

    2. Has any sitting president not ran for re-election (either under the current 2 term rule or via the 2 term tradition)?

    He asked me because I am somewhat knowledgeable about American political history. My first instinct was to assume that if it happened it was in the 19th century and I told him that I would have to do research.

    Then I thought about it and remembered that Lyndon Johnson had refused to seek nomination in 1968.





    Arguably, President Truman could qualify as a sitting president who did not run. He finished FDR's term and was elected in his own right, prior to the 22nd Amendment.

    I also told my friend that I was very skeptical about those polls, invoked the polls that had Hillary winning in 2016, and opined that Trump would be crazy to not seek re-election.

    if the 2016 debacle taught us just one thing, [it taught us much, much more] its that polls are created to manipulate public opinion, not to represent actual numbers.


    besides, if everyone around is crazy, that doesn't mean i'm going to follow suit.

    i have my own mind.

    Was just about to quote your 1st post, then saw this one. I remember the NYT poll, for weeks it didn't move, except one time it moved about 1% or less in trump's favor, but that didn't last long. For weeks it stays the same. this is impossible, it has to increase/decrease, regardless of who it favors.

    The way the media handled the election & this was a major red flag to me.
