It comes down to 6 states. That’s all that matters. Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota’s Wisconsin. Hopefully enough people in those states see sense. It doesn’t matter that a place like GA is 80% Red vs 65% red in a winner-take-all system.

Ahhhhhh yes. Good call.

I agree with C2, democrats complain about EVERYTHING and they think because they're louder, they are right. There's a silent majority for a reason.

I voted for Obama in 2012 and Trump in 2016- I don't regret either of my decisions and I'm glad that I don't base my opinions by party lines.

I'll continue to decide who I vote for based on the state of the country and my own thoughts about the candidates- It's my right to decide.

Voted for Clinton in 2016. Trump hasn’t changed much about how he’s gone about things. Democrats have.

I find myself leaning towards Trump because of the toxicity of woke wars and identity politics by democrats

The left fringe shouldn’t underestimate its ability to alienate voters - just as the fringe on the right did in 2018 House elections.

DJT loves AOC and vice versa because they each are able to strengthen their positions within their respective parties by pointing at the other and riling their bases up.

Lots of comments about "trumps base" but dems don't understand that there are people who don't rep "MAGA" every day but are going to vote for him (like me). What have they done to try to win my vote? Nothing.

They've played the game of trying to guilt people into not voting for Trump "you're clearly a racist, sexist, xenophobe, dumb" if you vote for trump.

That's all they can do because they sure as shit know that the policies they campaign on are not going to win any voters (decriminalization of border crossing, reparations, taxes, Medicare for all).

But M4A is not a Biden policy and he’s our nominee - so why are republicans punishing Democrats for Bernie when he isn’t even the nominee? Democrats said no to Bernie themselves and now republicans need to be pissed at Democrats anywAy?

End of the day, Republicans campaign on actions, policies and what's in it for their voters.

Democrats campaign on feelings. It doesn't work. Unless they want to lose election after election, they should try something else.

The entire democratic primary process was based on beating the orange man because he is bad. Sure, that'll fire up people in CA and NY. But the other people don't care because they have other shit to worry about than whether or not the president is nice.

It's that simple. Democrats are too arrogant to believe that though, so you can count on a Trump victory.

There’s a great analysis in The NY Times about how McConnell and Republicans purposely held back the economic recovery after 2008 because Obama was president. It’s an eye opening read.

I agree that most of his base will support him regardless. But he has really screwed up the COVID preparation and response. Might that hurt him in the upcoming election?

He gives hope for all the unqualified people. You could be a third grade person and still become the president and then fill your cabinet with worse candidates and most importantly fill judges who are totally unqualified even by their own rating groups.

That's giving mediocrity a whole new meaning. Lol.

Honestly both parties have been making things extremely polarized for years. While Trump has taken advantage of right leaning voters on the republican side, Democratic leadership has become increasingly socialist (or even Communist) in many of their policies and have left few reasonable alternatives. I would really like to see a viable third party candidacy run from the center. Unfortunately, there are still too few voters who give serious consideration to third party candidates to make that very likely.

Sorry if this is a bad question but I’ve tried to google and found conflicts. I’ve seen a lot on social media to not use the term “person of color” when referring to a black person. I’ve also seen companies touting diversity on Instagram like “30% black, 55% person of color...etc.”. I’m wondering, what ethnicity/ races are they referring to when they say “people of color”? I’m guessing black +others? Is it everything non white (Latino, Asian, middle eastern etc)? Is it only some Asians?
