Do the impeachment proceedings hurt or improve Trump’s chances for re-election?
I think they improve his chances. He will use the certain acquittal in the Senate as a sword against the Democrats. He will say he was fully exonerated and did nothing wrong.
Which Democratic candidate(s) do you think will give Trump the greatest challenge for re-election?
Joe Biden, because he has the most experience and it is apparent that Trump is worried about him.
Do you support more candidates entering the Democratic race?
Ordinarily I would say no, but I love Michael Bloomberg and welcome him into the race.
