Thoughts On 2020

FLG will say this.  He, very reluctantly, voted for Hillary Clinton.

He will also say this, the Democrats, since the beginning, have misinterpreted, at the very least, FLG's vote.   Going back to Michael Moore the very next day:

If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don't. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he's president is because of an arcane, insane, 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we'll continue to have presidents we didn't elect and didn't want.
You live in a country where a majority of citizens have said they believe there's climate change, they believe women should be paid the same as men, they want a debt-free college education, they don't want us invading countries, they want a raise in the minimum wage and they want a single-payer true universal health care system. None of that has changed. We live in a country where the majority agree with the "liberal" position. 

At the time, FLG blew this off as, well, as he does will all things Michael Moore does and says.   But just to be clear, at least in FLG's case, a vote for Hillary should NOT be interpreted as a vote for the most progressive Democratic platform pretty much ever conceived.   It was more along the lines of choosing the turd sandwich instead of the giant douche.

Anyway, long story short, if they run Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, or any number of far lefties, FLG's very likely going to vote for Trump, unless he literally starts a nuclear war.

And, again, to be clear, he more or less screams profanities at Trump's image on the Internet and Television almost every day.   It's not like he's happy with Trump by any stretch of the imagination.

Is FLG the marginal voter in an electoral college race?   Perhaps not.   But he is also pretty sure voters like him in Northern Virginia aren't inconsequential either.
