Even with all the social unrest going on, all I see is the same political polarization ramped up to 11 in both sides..
At what point does the electoral college / popular vote disparity become untenable?
If current demographic trends continue, in the not too distant future we could potentially have someone lose the popular vote by 10%+ and still win the electoral college.
I think it's already untenable. It was always difficult to build a majority. The computerization of politics has made it easier to game the system, and win with a minority instead.
I don't know how to fix this.
More prominent republicans have crossed sides to endorse Biden than any candidate has received cross endorsements in history.
Did Ronald Reagan win?
But anyways, the purpose of the post is not about the efficacy of endorsements, but question the state of traditional political polarization.
We are seeing a new political realignment.
Make no mistake, this is his election to lose. It has nothing to do with Biden. You're either for Trump or against Trump.
The pro-Trump voices are really ramping up in Michigan because of a recent visit. Mentally I've checked out. I've been working some side jobs and I really just can't handle the unnecessary stress of this contentious election. I've been ignoring most of the text messages from pro-Trump family members.
I'm not sure what they're expecting. Am I supposed to listen to their bullshit about him and be like "oh yeah he totally is going to get my vote now"? I think they just like to fight and argue and feel like they're fulfilling their duty by shitting on the anti-Trump people. This is one of the primary reasons why I don't want Trump to win is because he has the most obnoxious supporters in the history of the United States ... Well at least in my lifetime.
I'm still on the belief that he will win, though. Make no mistake, this is his election to lose. It has nothing to do with Biden. You're either for Trump or against Trump.
Almost totally out of the loop here but does infowars have any clout since being knocked out of most mainstream channels? I don’t know if facts have ever mattered but certainly they matter less in 2020.
Infowars hit the chaldeans strong. Took a vulnerable group of people and worked their paranoia.
