•Aw, one Billionaire out of a list you believe to be a liberal is the one you call out? Hair splitting.

•This election will be determined by what a sentient Americans have witnessed and heard. It will be determined by a terror of allowing this man toddler to be the Leader of the country while two hot wars are going on.  It will be determined by a fear of over half the population having a target on their bodies and medical choices: In Some States women are Free, and in others she is a Birthing Slave to the State. A State that takes an interest in her having the child, but no involvement while the child is being raised.
This is Theology making law, not evidenced based. The seminal foundation of this Nation.
Are we to allow something not provable to make law? Has Spectral Evidence (belief) been allowed to return under the guise of "Religious Freedom?'

•Statements now from the right 'predicting' that Biden will win is the set-up argument for the "Rigged Election" if he wins.
The "We've been telling you About it for Months" prognosticators implying THEY know about malfeasance that's taking place. They 'win' if Biden wins, thus maintaining the argument for rigged elections. 


A bit too easy peasy Agatha Christie, for my taste. However, I have a low bar for Trump followers.

Yeah, right.

What party again is the home of antisemitism in this country ?  It sure ain't the republicans.

Want autocrats ?  You want Biden & Co. to be sure.  You want to be ruled by unelected bureaucrats, not Congress.

Oh and Biden just lambasted China with Trump style tariffs.

Everyone here went nutz over Trump for his tariffs.  Let's see what you all do now with Joe's.

And Hillary is a shoo-in

Polling is an interesting process to me, exactly for the reason you point out.

My unscientific analysis of your comment on 2016 is that the MAGA voters were in hiding.  They knew then that Trump was all the things we know he is now, but to them, the choice was better than another Clinton.  They weren't necessarily going to admit that out loud... but they voted that way.

Fast forward to this year, and the MAGAverse wears anarchy as a badge of honor.  A red MAGA hat may as well be a swastika. They not only aren't embarrassed, but they go out of their way to demonstrate fealty.   They want to be polled.  They answer the phone when it rings.  

Now, the left is begrudgingly supportive of Biden.  Every non-Trump voter wishes something would happen before the convention, but if it doesn't, in November, they will vote Biden in defense of democracy.  The autocrat will be defeated quietly.  No need to telegraph the plan just in case Trump wins, but the majority will show up against Trump (in PA and MI and WI), the very same way they showed up against Hillary.

It is also my home state.  I'm a second gen native, the wife is a fifth gen native.

It has been ruined beyond repair, imo.  Give it back to Spain.  Even better, Russia.  They had a foothold there, too.

The gipper was from Illinois ...

Those IOUs are mostly what's called Treasury notes, bills or bonds. They are some of the safest securities ever. You probably have some. If you do and are really concerned, I'll buy them all from you today at 9% discount. Let me know.

Careful what you wish for. CA & NY account for over 22% of the entire US gross domestic product. Good luck without that.
