Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Don't get me wrong, I think Biden is most likely to win and quite possibly by a landslide. But a 12% chance of a Trump win is not negligible and Biden is quite capable of screwing up in the next debate.

What has puzzled me most about this campaign is how stable it has been, despite Covid-19 and the train wreck which has been Trump's Presidency and campaign. He has broken every rule in the book and it has hardly effected his numbers.

Deep down I wonder is there something deeply authoritarian, misogynistic, racist, narcissistic, and envious in the US psyche, which values material self-aggrandisement above all else and cares little about the damage it does to others.

Something almost Germanic without the transformative reckoning which Hitler and WWII forced on Germany itself. A lot of people seem to admire Trump and wish to emulate him even though they know he is a fraud.

I suppose the declining days of empire where ever thus.
