  1. "Crushed him in PV" = that wasn't the game they were playing. There was nothing embarrassing about it. 45K is absolutely nothing and rallies weren't even a positive during COVID. Do you not remember the media going absolutely all in for Biden saying what a blowout it would be? Democrats couldn't even celebrate given how close the race was and how far off they were in results.
  2. I don't personally care about either BUT given Kamala presents a very different public image contrary to these reports, therein lies the hypocrisy. Trump is literally known for saying, "You're fired" time and time again it's not a surprise he's a difficult boss (but very loyal which we've gotten no sense from Kamala bout). Kamala's issue seem to stem more from incompetence and horrible morale while Trump just has high standards and is erratic.
  3. Why are you acting like the 2020 race wasn't incredibly close? Trump lost by about 45,000 with negative momentum heading into Election Day, pollsters and pundits predicting a massive Biden win and of course the sketchiest voting we've seen in years if ever bc of covid and other factors. 45,000! That's nothing. Absolutely anyone Republican even Richard Nixon could defeat Biden at this point. It is incredibly likely to happen, and as mentioned favorability doesn't matter whatsoever it's approval that counts. According to Gallup before election, Clinton had 47% favorability while Trump had 36%, 11% difference. How'd that work out? The bottom line is if Biden continues to be an unpopular president, he is not beating Trump. People will hold their nose and either vote Trump or not vote at all. We will have seen 4 years of Biden by that point, there is no mystery or great hope people could imagine how a "Biden administration" would look after seeing it firsthand. The Hill poll says it all if the election were held today. With Trump cruising to an easy GOP victory, it will just be part 2 Biden vs Trump (with a much better VP) only Biden cannot rely on Covid to avoid having to do numerous campaign trips. Things will only get worse after the midterms for Biden's approval ratings unless the party can miraculously turn it around.
  4. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/12/04/kamala-harris-staff-departures/ - senior advisor and chief spokesperson Symone Sanders leaving -communications chief and two other staffers what is going on?? "Critics scattered over two decades point to an inconsistent and at times degrading principal who burns through seasoned staff members who have succeeded in other demanding, high-profile positions. " "Staffers who worked for Harris before she was vice president said one consistent problem was that Harris would refuse to wade into briefing materials prepared by staff members, then berate employees when she appeared unprepared. “It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work,” one former staffer said. “With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you’re constantly sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why.”" reminds me an awful lot of the Politico piece on her horrible presidential run. https://www.politico.com/news/2019/11/15/kamala-harris-campaign-2020-071105 --- A trump vs. Harris 2024 race would be one of the biggest blowouts in US recent history.
  5. Favorability vs. Approval is totally different. I don't really factor in favorability. https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/584585-more-voters-would-pick-trump-over-biden-if-election-were-held-today-poll More voters would back former President Trump than President Biden in a hypothetical match-up if the 2024 election were held today, according to a new Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill. Forty-eight percent of voters in the survey said they would back Trump, compared with 45 percent for Biden. Another 8 percent were unsure. The results were evenly split at 46 percent among women, while men backed Trump by a margin of 50 percent to 43 percent. Biden won urban voters by 20 percentage points and suburban voters by 4 percentage points, but Trump romped among rural voters by 33 percentage points.
  6. the thing about the GOP side is that there is no real race. It's either Trump or if he chooses not to run, DeSantis. The one wildcard would be if Trump endorsed someone other than DeSantis but it's pretty cut and dry. Dem side is a shitshow
  7. Saw a poll asking if they think airlines will have mandatory masks in 2023 and 65-70% said yes. If this is the new "reality" we will be in forever no way Biden will win. What is he going to run on?? At least DeSantis GOP can say they want to totally move on from this COVID thing, Dems are on the wrong side of that the more we go into the future.
  8. Or just not vote for either, particularly minorities. No way the black vote is what it was in 2020 at this rate, and the Hispanic vote moved tremendously towards Trump.
  9. Remember Biden's 4th of July celebration for ending Covid? Huge mistake Joe. This is not all his fault (most of it is), but it's going to be impossible for him or Kamala to win as long as these variants keep popping up
  10. 2020 was the perfect storm of covid, weird voting rules, and a safe candidate who had strong approval ratings from both sides. And he still lost a very very close race. 2022 midterms will be a huge test. Whether you think trump is a bad candidate or not, republicans are in great shape if Biden continues to govern how he does for a pretty dominant sweep. And if he doesn’t run there are 0 Good Democratic options trumps approval, favorable marks etc will never be lower than they were as he handled covid. The worst of his mishaps are in the past especially with no Twitter
  11. As much as you dislike Trump, the momentum and energy he would bring given the circumstances of the world today would trump any "hate" he has from others. Yes he would inspire more from the Democratic base, but it's tough to hate a guy or be so inspired to vote against him when he hasn't been in office for 4 years.
  12. Tim Scott is not ready for President yet, I'd need to see him tested more because it's been smooth sailing. But as a VP a perfect choice besides DeSantis (I'd probably go Scott depending on if Pete B is in the picture or not) Not a fan of Haley personally. She doesn't seem that impressive in speeches, her flip flopping on Trump reminds me of Romney and I think the media would eat her alive. Good luck trying to paint Scott with the racist flag. I recall liberals calling him an Uncle ___ which was the most disgusting and ineffective attack I've seen.
  13. CNN the worst of the 3 cable news channels. At least Fox News and MSNBC don't pretend to be impartial.
  14. unbeatable. as we talked about with the minority vote, this would be both a historic and unstoppable combination. especially given the awful options on the Democratic side. I'd even risk saying that trump and Scott would get at minimum 15% of the Black vote and most likely more against a Kamala/Pete ticket or vice versa. 30% if Pete is front of the ticket
  15. https://www.politico.com/news/2021/11/29/trump-vice-president-choice-2024-523429
  16. Do you believe most things on Fox News and other right leaning sights are true information?
  17. So not upset as her for spreading false information from a bigger platform? Don’t think you’d have that reaction if trump posted a link to some alt right link
  18. If you didn't see the numbers that Trump did with Hispanics in Florida, AND the gains he made with black voters despite the media bashing the "Racist" card over the head with him you are fooling yourself. What has Biden done for minorities since taking office that is anything of substance? He can barely get through a speech on race without accidentally saying some 1920's ethnic slur. The bigger issue for Trump is how many suburban white people flocked back to Biden. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/did-trump-draw-out-new-latino-republican-voter-bloc-florida-n1248577 In all, support for Trump among Cuban Americans increased only slightly from 2016, but his backing among Latinos in Florida who do not identify as Cuban or Puerto Rican went up significantly, to 50 percent, according to NBC News exit polls. Some experts say the number may be a little lower. Still, this group is a significant part of the state's Latino electorate, at 40 percent, while Cubans, the largest Latino voter group, are 29 percent. According to NBC News exit polls, 45 percent of Latino voters in Florida supported Trump, up by 10 percentage points from 2016. Miami-Dade, the state's biggest county, dramatically shifted from being a reliably blue county that Hillary Clinton won by 30 points in 2016 to what some experts are now calling a purple county — after Joe Biden won by only 7 points.
  19. If this is a sign of how he is planning to run in 2022/2024, this may be one of the biggest blowouts in US history.
  20. Of course Democrats are more attractive to Africans Americans right now, but the GROWTH in support is clearly on the Republicans side. If they can get even 5-7% more of the black vote in 2024 the election is over no matter who runs. Since 2008: 95% black men 96% black woman 2012: 87% black men (HUGE drop) 96% black woman 2016: 82% black men (another big drop) 94% black woman 2020: 80% black men 91% black woman https://www.nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/black-men-drifted-democrats-toward-trump-record-numbers-polls-show-n1246447 There were a few groups that appear to have driven this shift toward President Donald Trump among Black men. Over half of Black men (52 percent) who identified as ideologically conservative cast their vote for the president, and 1 in 3 Black men living in the Midwest also voted for him. About 26 percent of Black men who had a high school diploma or less supported Trump. But 22 percent of Black men with bachelor’s degrees and 20 percent of Black men with advanced degrees also supported him. The poll states that 67 percent of Black people in the U.S. said they somewhat or strongly approve of the way Biden is handling his job as president, down from 85 percent just two months previously—a fall of 18 percentage points. https://www.newsweek.com/joe-biden-approval-rating-fallen-most-black-adults-pew-1638502 --- This is also taking into account Biden had Kamala Harris as his VP and yet still his numbers were this poor. And along with her disastrous approval rating, not letting her be the nominee would be a disaster for the African American base. All I'm saying is that you're going to be stunned at the numbers if Buttigeg or even Biden runs again. Biden has done absolutely nothing for voting rights, police laws and frankly I question your judgement if you don't see the patterns and writing on the wall. The GOP is making MASSIVE inroads with the African American community (and Hispanics and Asian Americans) and you'll see it at the polls in 2022.
  21. He's with Rosario Dawson so even if he never gets married, that helps enough.
  22. Paris made mandatory outdoor mask mandates now And why is Biden starting the travel ban on MONDAY instead of immediately? Do something right for once in your life Joe.
