why do you think all these allegedly bloodthirsty mobs that definitely weren't egged on by agent provocateurs were let into the capitol buildings while there was a illogically low number of police on hand for this event that was known to be happening in ample time beforehand



Because trump wanted them to succeed, he really thought
he could pull off a coup.

At the end of Thursday's hearing, the committee aired tape of senior White House staff recounting how members of Congress had requested presidential pardons for their involvement in attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential results. The list included Matt Gaetz of Florida and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.

"The only reason I know to ask for a pardon is because you think you committed a crime," said committee member Adam Kinzinger, a Republican.

Report tobermory June 26, 2022 3:41 PM BST
The ace for Harris would be if Biden had to actually step down during 2023. Then she'd be the incumbent and it'd be problematic for other Democrats to run against her. Parties where the incumbent president faces a strong challenge always seem to lose.

Though even then, if she had terrible poll ratings there would surely be a challenge.

If Biden announces he will serve his term and not run in 2024, and endorse Harris, I think she would be challenged. Maybe initially just by a no hoper. But if she was struggling against, say, an 83 yr old Bernie, then you would see a 'stop Bernie or whoever' candidate, which most likely would be Newsom, though other big name possibilities.

There is a 2hr documentary about it that was made by HBO and shown on BBC.

It was from an anti Trump POV but makes it very clear what a farce it all was. Not pre planned at all, no orders, they didn't even want to be outside the capitol but they were not allowed near the rally. They just started heading towards the building and it immediately became apparent that there was nothing to stop them.

I think generally the UK market for this tends to underrate Governors, and the leaders in the betting are characters from previous administrations or prominent senators, that Brits will have heard of.

Governors are mostly unknown over here because they don't figure internationally.

But the most important factor in the credibility of a presidential bid is how you will fund it, and governors of big states have very powerful backers.

Does anyone recall what the rough amount matched was at this stage for the 2020 election? Not sure if there is any way to track that down. I do remember that the amounts matched rocketed after the election day as gullible Trumpers proceeded to wipe themselves out.


idk about this stage but irc after the election it went from like 300 million to over 1 billion i think. not sure we'll see stupidity like that again from trump bettors, although he is still fav to win the election Crazy

One thing Trump does do is generate huge betting interest. His loyal followers will back him at any price, irrespective of how accurate that price may be.

not sure how many of them will be betting again after they expected the books to side with them. i wonder how those lawsuits are going for them haha, some of the trump action might of been exacerbated by people willing to pay a premium to get their collateral back rather than weight for weeks and weeks until betfair finally settled it also.

It would be easy to apportion blame in that whole sorry episode (for trumpers) but I would probably be thrown off the forum.

Well, let's just say that if the market had been closed at an appropriate time, some trumpers wouldn't have been wiped out.

ahh yeah I hadn't thought of that, it did drag on too long really. I wonder if betfair were content to let it go longer to collect extra commission

wouldn't surprise me at all, betfair have been going downhill for years, politics gotta be one of the only growing markets these days.
