    Default US COVID-19 deaths by Election Day

    As of April 16th, there have been over 31,000 US deaths from COVID-19. The first documented US death was on February 29th. With social distancing and other measures, the curve of illnesses is flattening, but deaths will continue.

    The poll question is simple: if the nation continues to keep shut down without a vaccine, a cure or access to speedy, cheap testing, will there be more than the high end of projected US flu deaths (62,000) or less by the November election?

    Much has been made by Trump that COVID-19 is just another flu bug and he thinks the nation should open up for business as usual....although he refuses to order that to be done.

    Obviously Trump is looking at the election. Dead Americans don't matter to him but the economy does. With the nation shut down, the stock market is in the dumper and will stay there for months after the nation is back to normal.

    Social distancing is working. If our nation goes back to normal operations, social distancing isn't possible. If Trump is wrong about COVID-19 being no worse than the flu, the numbers of dead Americans will rise dramatically....which is why I think he won't order the country back to work.

    How many times, my dear, have you told us that this virus is no worse than the common flu.

    That is why he is setting up the Governors as the scapegoat

    Trump will come out with some generalized statement, something nondefinative that he can alter as needed and deny later on, and then in October of events stay the same, he will proclaim he tried to restore the economy but the Governors wouldn't follow thru

    What do deaths from a virus have to do with an election? Do you think this is a good thing for Biden?

    Agreed. Trump is a gutless coward; always has been, always will be. He never accepts responsibility for failure or takes the full blame. He just takes the credit. The economy is an example: He claimed credit for it doing well and passed the buck when it failed.

    They are going to lie, as much as you do honey bunny. You can change you ID's but you can't change your writing style or verbiage. There are certain words and expressions that give you away every time.

    ROFLMAO So everyone is conspiring against you? Fascinating.

    Why didn't you vote in the poll? Like TD, are you afraid to take a stand?

    I will vote once you can spend an entire day without lying. In fact, lets just make it a single hour without lying.

    Wow. You would make a really good Trump staff member, maybe even a Press Secretary.

    You know quite well, honey bunny that you can't go a single minute without lying. Its all you know how to do, all you are capable of with such limited brain power.
