A comparison of Trump and Biden's questions from about the 2:20-4:05 mark:

I don't know if I should :rofl: , or :ohno: . Absolutely comical in how the town halls were set up by CNN & ABC to be pro Biden and anti Trump..
That is SUCH crap. What the Town Halls showed is that Trump is a fish out of water when he's not dealing with his cult members.
The crap is that Trump got fastballs, amd Biden got softballs that barely crossed the plate.

2 weeks ago drove to Saint Augustine Beach, FL (Trump won that county, Saint Johns, by 33 pts in 2016), where spent a week+ Drove alot off insterstate/rural 2-4 lane highway in rural western VA, Carolinas & GA. Similar on the way back this past week. Saw literally 100+ places with Trump signs/flags, and ONE place with a Biden flag (one off the beach) in St Augustine Beach. Also several dozen Trump bumper stickers, only a couple of Biden. If yard signs/flags are any indication, Trump will win in a landslide.
Try driving the back roads of the upper Great Plains. Hardly a farm yard (or equipment in the field) goes by that you don't see something Trump related.
The majority of people in this country do not want Trump. Our system gives him a chance as it did last time. The COVID-19 situation in which intelligent people want to vote by mail , while idiots who think it's a hoax and tend to support Trump do not, increase his chances. But make no mistake: Trump is not and will not be the choice of "The People."

Let's hope he's not the choice at all because him being President is very bad for this country.

No. What you saw there is people selectively choosing snips to create that impression.

Sounds racists.

Or do you mean certain Native American tribes? I believe there were several of them that their name for themselves translated into "The People". I honestly haven't checked lately what their voting patterns are so you could be right in that regards.

Is there money involved in being protected? I would like to open a casino/bar someday and could use a bit of help. My vote is for sale. :D

One reason to get a 9th justice confirmed prior to the election, is this election could be a repeat of 2000, with SCOTUS having to get involved. Only 8 jutices would leave the potential for a 4-4 tie, resulting in even more post election chaos.
You don't think chaos will ensue with a 5-4, Conservative split of the bench? Especially after a contentious nomination and confirmation? You're underestimating your opponents.

I think the GOP is taking the position now that it doesn't matter what they do, chaos is going to abound anyway no matter what position is taken on replacing Ginsberg. If you run that through the Nash equilibrium, if chaos is going to happen anyway, might as well move ahead with a nomination. Dems were already leaning towards packing the court before Ginsberg passed, and they'll likely do so once they get control again anyway. Going to be crazy times in DC over the next decade as both parties do whatever they can to consolidate power.

It's also why we'll never have any true reform. Nobody will stand up and take the first, difficult step.

Nice article - I like these two quotes:
If the standard is that anyone who even entertains debates over the maximalist and most controversial questions in this very new and evolving social movement is to be cast out as radioactive, liberalism and the Democratic Party will be a very small group.
...liberals care far more about proper culture signaling than they do about the much harder and more consequential work of actual politics.
