Doubting Trump will win doesn't mean not wanting Trump to win.
I see this attitude a lot: If one thinks Trump is unlikely to win, people somehow take it to mean that the poster must not want Trump to win. It's not the same thing at all.

By analogy, a pessimistic sports fan (of LSU, Texas, Bama, or any other team) is no less a fan of his team than an optimist. He certainly isn't rooting for defeat; he wants to win as much as anyone else does. Yet some people think that if someone considers a Trump reelection to be unlikely, that must mean the poster doesn't want Trump to win.

I have not met a single Trump supporter that doesn't think he wins in a fair election.

Eh, if this is the case, then I would say they suck as a person and are looking for reasons for Trump to lose at this point and discounting the reasons he should or would win...

These folks pretty much suck as a person as well...

But there is zero chance it will be fair. The level of lying, stealing, and cheating that's going to occur will be utterly unprecedented. And with the media taking their cues directly from the dnc, any attempt to draw attention to malfeasance will be called conspiracy theories at best or simply go unreported at worst. I hope he wins, I just don't think he has enough votes to overcome the massive, pervasive, thoroughly nationwide fraud that definitely is going to happen.

I'm a trump supporter.

And why did you add the caveat of fair election?

Obviously they are going to cheat. So you can't say fair election because that simply isn't possible.

I'm not sure who is going to win the election.

Because no Trump supporter believes it will be a fair election

We need to realize the path to victory is smaller for the Republican than it is for the democrat. The Republican starts out down 90 EC votes, and has to win more battlegrounds to overcome that.

God forbid Texas ever turns blue.

Because they really don't want him to win I bet.

The only way Biden wins is if they are cheating. That is why they want universal, mail-in voting with no confirmation.
