    No, they shouldn't care about whether people of color, et al. are on that side. But count me unsurprised that that is where your mind went to: identity politics.

    They should vote Democrat because the Democrats unarguably have better policies per just about every qualified appraisal, be it by economists, scientists, legal experts, consumer advocacy groups, social scientists, or just about anyone with a brain, and the last several Republican administrations, but this one most of all, have been policy disasters and have been marred by corruption and conflict of interest in doling out massive tax cuts, government appointments, and regulatory favors to powerful private interests. As far as his status as a business owner, the proof is in the pudding: Democratic administrations have been favorable to small business, while Republican administrations have been favorable to massive corporations.

    The fourth branch of govt (the media) is a real thing. Luckily the ‘boy who cried wolf’ syndrome is also a real thing and people are onto the fact that the fourth branch has been operating in bad faith for some time.

    Answer my question and I'll answer yours. It's a very simple question - when I suggested he made a series of gaffes and faux pas, you responded with "if you say so", which is inferring that I'm wrong.

    Yet now you don't seem to have the confidence to definitely state something that you seemed very confident about in your first post. Don't dick tuck, just answer the question.

    Yeah, voters live in two different universes. Republicans can't even comprehend how little most liberals care about culture-war bullshit, and liberals can't really comprehend how obsessed with identity politics Republicans are.

    Who gives a shit? The media overhypes everything to suit their narrative.

    If he's really a white nationalist Nazi as they claim, he's gotta be the worst one in history (relative to his level of power).

    I think he will surely lose the popular vote again. Because he is the only president to never poll favorably during his entire term and the people who are against him will be motivated to vote. If he somehow wins again despite an even larger gap in the popular vote I think the electoral college will become a huge political issue.

    It’s hilarious how easily you goofs bite on the propaganda. For instance,


    Reality - Republicans win both elections in NC this week.


    Headline - Election results are bad for Trump.


    <{hughesimpress}>


    It’s over for him. I think I just saw the walls closing in...

    Trump will do something desperate to stir shit up even though he'll claim its all good. My guess is pence gets dumped.

    These points are key and if people were logical and open minded in ANY way, as you seem to be in your admissions, then I would absolutely agree you're spot on.

    However, it does seem like a huge majority who had the same thoughts as you heading into the last election have simply doubled down in their support. They pretend he's kept his promises, fought against the deep state, represented the common people, and worked for whats best for the country. Literally every single fact proves all that false, as he's been a complete disaster from the start with lies and embarrassments every single day. But people have actually convinced themselves he's done a good job based on 1 thing.... annoying liberals. It's hard for people to admit they were wrong, seems easier for most to live in a fantasy world where he's been competent in any way.

    Think about how disturbed a right wingers brain is when they say things like

    “Have you seen the Dem field, they’re all terrible” as they cast a vote for trump.

    You can’t make this type of stuff up. It’s so insane it’s hard to wrap your head around.

    That really goes to show you how crazy and bad the Democrat candidates are, if they make Trump look sane.

    Pence isn't going anywhere lol. Pence was the token given to the religous right to overlook what an immoral person Trump is.
    On what grounds would he get rid of him? As far as I can tell he doesn't do anything but go to church and look like he's got a stick up his ass.

    You don't have to make stuff like that up because its what people have done since we have had elections. Act shocked and superior about it if you must.

    I’m quite confident. But I keep hearing that “fine people on both sides” is some sort of gaffe. But a proper analysis of that situation leads to the conclusion that he was 100% correct. So I’m just trying to see if we can get our base material on the same footing and go from there.
