Default Trump has COVID-19 -- Outcome Poll

Pick the outcome that you think will most likely happen.

Maybe we should be able to choose more than one option. :-)

I notice that "45 survives and is humbled by the experience" is not an option here.

That's because the notion of 45 even being capable of humility is risible.

I picked "blame everybody else," but the hydrochloroquine choice is a good one, too.
How about a "Rump shoots up bleach....." option?

Why is the poll limited to one choice?

That is the way that polls work (I think). This is the first one I set up so I don't know if there is an option to choose more than one.

Biden tests negative after debating Trump on Tuesday, thus explains the importance of wearing the masks for both Biden himself and the staffs around him.-

I voted "chosen one," partly because there are in fact people who actually believe he was sent by God, and partly because of the image in this post.

The FAQ says
Quote:
To vote in a poll, simply select which option you want to vote for, and click the [Vote!] button.
That's "option," singular. So it appears not to be possible to allow voting for more than one option.

It is possible in theory to circumvent this. If the basic options are A, B, and C, you could add options "A and B," "A and C," "B and C," and "A, B, and C."

Of course, an all-inclusive list of combinations increases a list of n basic options to a list of 2n - 1 options, assuming "none of the above" is covered by not casting a vote.

Are we sure it isn't just another lie and he doesn't have CV19? Then he can claim to have come through it unharmed and show how the virus is nothing to worry about.

This notion was all over the Twitterverse as soon as the diagnosis became public. I wish I could dismiss it out of hand, but somehow I just can't.

New developments make the question more cogent. Head on over to the "Supreme Commander" thread, I'll have it posted in two shakes...
