Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Surely the elephant in the room is Republican cheating, vote-suppression, and the Supreme Court? Because on the polling, that is looking like the only way Trump will "win".

Important as these issues are, they are not listed as high as the pandemic in voters main concerns, and tend to only reinforce voter's initial allegiances - whereas Covid is striking at the very heart to Republican voters.

Sure. But that's about voting. The problem is that the voting might not actually matter, because one party explicitly rejects it as the foundation of legitimacy and has expressed a willingness to ignore democracy to retain power. And with a baked in majority on the Supreme Court, they might be able to get away with it if the result isn't decisive enough to give them no wiggle room whatsoever.
