anecdotal perhaps, but the 5 bernie supporters I know have said they're simply not going to vote this year. don't underestimate biden's lack of ability to get people to the polls, especially with covid making a big comeback.

I have learned long ago that never underestimate a political party’s ability to “shoot themselves in the foot.”

I personally wish that both parties would shoot themselves in the head. Maybe some sanity would return to this country (although, with the stupidity and ignorance of the average American, that will never happen.)

This is why trump supporters act like his election is certain. Nobody is excited by the prospect of Biden as President. NOBODY.


But it doesn't occur to them they just simply won't vote. But I bet they are referring to he will win again by electoral.

We'll see ...

Even the most rabid MAGA-hat wearing co-workers seem to have toned down their hate-mongering rhetoric lately.
