    You might be proven right in the end, but you're at a serious disadvantage not living in this country
    because you can't really feel or sense the pulse of the electorate.

    The American people are fed up with Trump, and Biden winning the gunfight at town hall corral by nearly 1,000,000 viewers is proof.

    You're right Florida is reason for concern, according to FOX News Republicans now trail Democrats by just 134,242 registered voters

    The good news, Biden doesn't need Florida to win whereas Trump has no chance without Florida

    Dont count those chickens yet

    Election 2020 polls: Trump surges in Florida, Biden up in Georgia
    Trump also erased much of Biden's gains in Florida from last week

    Naturally the polls are tightening up as we get closer to the election, but I'd still rather be in Biden's shoes than Trumps.

    A sitting president with numbers like that just two weeks before the election is not a formula to success.

    btw since you now claim to be a Biden supporter I assume you'll be voting the democratic ticket across the board?

    On one side you have people that literally want to dismantle democratic America and on the other people who don’t – and you are like you don’t really care what happens

  9. Told you Trump getting over Covid would kill the covid panic

    "There is also reduced support for shutting down bars and restaurants as caseloads climb in the U.S. While a July poll found 54% of respondents favored closing down businesses and 53% supported lockdown orders, the most recent Oct. poll found only 41% supported closing down restaurants and bars and 44% favor staying at home except for essential errands."

    A false dichotomy presents only two choices when there are actually more.
    In this case you can vote for Trump, you can vote for Biden, or you can refuse to vote at all; that's three choices, not two.
    Vote for Trump - Trump 1, Biden 0
    Vote for Biden - Biden 1, Trump 0
    Don't vote at all - Biden 0, Trump 0

    But since Trump is banking on low voter turn out and voter suppression, a non vote impacts Biden more than Trump.

    Voting in the U.S. in 2020 is a binary choice. Last time round, there were alternatives in the form of Gary Johnson and Jill Stein, but people who opted for them last time seem to have learned their lessons. A vote for "none of the above" or an abstention is a vote for whoever is the plurality preference in your state. I wouldn't let Wikipedia sway vote. My Catholic sister threw her vote away last time over abortion. This time, she's stuffing envelopes for Biden.

    Do you follow the news at all?
    Trump claims the election is rigged.
    Trump hints he'll stay in office if he loses.
    He said to get rid of election ballots.
    He asked us to vote twice (to get our votes thrown out).
    In Wisconsin the Republicans sued to get voters to stand inline for hours waiting to vote.
    In Texas Republicans sued to stop sending absentee ballots to everyone.
    Trump, who votes by mail, calls mail in voting “horrible” and “corrupt.”.
    Trump donor Louis DeJoy cut postal service overtime, removed mail boxes, and sent trucks out half delay mail in votes.
    Trump wanted to cut funds to the USPS.
    In Florida Republicans are attempting to block the right of former felons to vote.
    In Georgia 1.4 million voter registrations were canceled due to a technicality, 70% of them were black voters (who tend to vote Democratic), mail in ballot requests were ignored, voting hours not extended, and a secretary of state issue incorrect voting instructions.
    Trump claims the election is rigged.

    .....should I go on????

    Trump and the Republicans encourage white suburban housewives to vote for them while doing what they can to make it difficult for those that might vote against them to vote at all.

    To me the problem with the US today is that many people on the right find nothing wrong with that and might even think it a good thing.

    It's a good thing we're turned the corner in this pandemic...……..

    U.S. records second-highest single-day rise in COVID-19 infections since pandemic began

    With coronavirus infections steadily increasing in the U.S., the number of new COVID-19 cases reported on Thursday was the second highest since the onset of the pandemic in the country, falling closely behind a peak during mid July, according to Reuters.

    Both cases and deaths have been showcasing rising rates over the past two weeks, culminating in 76,195 new cases reported on Thursday.

    This figure nears the country's single-day record of 77,299 cases on July 16.

    Critics of the White House concluded months ago that the president and his top advisers effectively stopped attempting to contain the virus as they advocated premature re-openings, embraced dangerous strategies like "herd immunity," and publicly downplayed the severity of the pandemic even as it infected millions and ravaged the nation's economy.
