I admire the hell out of sexual abusers, liars, people who wrap themselves in a BLM cloak while supporting anti-black policies, and people who think hiding in a basement constitutes leadership.

Yeah. A great American.
There will never be a meaningful response from the so-called Bernie voters on this forum on that truth.

But not pro-progressive.

Keep that in mind, as Biden is a Republican in Democrat clothing.

Then why are so many Republicans against him? Why not vote for the guy who has infiltrated the other side and who will carry your torch for the next four years?

Because Biden is not a Republican.

Because Biden is not a Republican.
Because something Rick Wilson said about American voting patterns is very true.

Faced with two unsavory choices, people take a chance on the devil they don't know over the devil they do know.

In 2016, we were faced with two candidates who lack any sort of empathy. One had a verifiable track record of legislation they had voted for so you could see what her voting patterns were.

One told you what he would do.

Faced with a choice between the devil you know and the devil you don't, people went with the one they didn't.

Country is immediately screwed.

Now Trump has an actual track record, so he can't run as an unknown anymore. Unfortunately, 40% of the country has shown they don't care what he does. In fact, the religious right has a whole theory on the thing called the Flight 93 scenario. Essentially, we can pretend that Trump has values if he gives us that crucial fifth justice so we can ram our social agenda down America's throat.

Unfortunately for the religious right, the passengers stormed the cabin, the plane crashed in a field in Western Pennsylvania, and now you can't fire gays because they're gay because that has been established as being discrimination against someone's sex. Which of course it is.

Note: Oaktown makes a good point that legislation could theoretically be passed saying that a religious loophole could be created to override this, but that is another Flight 93 scenario and they are out of time.

So according to reliable right-wing credible news sources, the religious right has given up on Trump in droves, driving a stake into that previously intractable 40% figure.

Will it be enough?

Again, simple math demonstrates the following.

In the group that includes all voters, polling demonstrates that up until the present day, 40% of the country has been intractably for Trump no matter what. 25% like neither candidate.

Simple math tells us that 100-40-25=35% who believe Biden is not a horrible person.

What will happen when they realize that Biden cannot live up to the impossible standards of cancel culture and woke politics? The proof already exists, but since the press has made the Faustian bargain that we have to either ignore the truth or attack the character of the person providing the proof to defeat Trumpism, the strategy has been to hide Biden away from public sight to keep him from being Biden in public.

And every time Biden pokes his hedgehog head out of his hole to seem presidential, he keeps saying dumb things. As he has done consistently throughout his career.

The only thing that can save Democrats right now is that verifiable truth is not enough for Trump. He loves the con too much. So it's a battle of which side will lie enough to increase that 25% number and decrease the numbers of the cult members on either side and then who has the larger cult at the end.

Sad, but that's the state of the 2020 electoral conversation.

With skills like that, you could write for a right-wing blog. I hear Epoch Times needs content.

McConnell, who has done more to undermine Senate rules than any leader in history, says: "But you had better not do that, Democrats!"

Sure thing, Mitch. Your input is valued immensely.

Don't for a moment be naive enough to think tRump won't "win" the election. Pull this stunt in the handful of key Electoral College states and we will have a POTUS that lost the popular vote by 6+ million votes.

It's egregious': thousands of mail-in ballots could be rejected over small errors

Presidential elections need some federal oversight by the FEC, in my opinon. States can run their congressional and senate elections however they want and they'll be answerable to their own citizens, but the feds should have some role in making sure that states aren't disenfranchising some of their voters and that they have sufficient staff and infrastructure to record ballots.
