    I’m not worried about Trump not leaving office if he loses. What is he going to do, lock the doors and not let the movers in? If nobody obeys his orders he can say anything he wants.

    SCOTUS isn’t going to come to his rescue. The military has explicitly stated it won’t get involved so there’s really no way for him to hang on. The House will recognize Biden and so will the Senate and that’s that.

    After he’s been voted out he could raise a ruckus with his most loyal followers but even among Republicans, 3/4 do NOT say it would be appropriate from him to stay in office because he claims voter fraud.

    What I am concerned about is the possibility of an October surprise. I’m thinking maybe a war if he could make it seem justified.
