If you fear reprisal for how you plan to vote, you might br living in a fascist country.

If you are in law enforcement, and use force against people asking you not to shoot them, you just might be a facist.

Man, I need to call Foxworthy's agent.

I could do a 90 minute set.

This is the danger of voting surveys. These people know they are trash and won't admit it except in the voting booth.

If you're afraid to admit to your values in public, perhaps they're just missing altogether.

Voting us definitely one if those, you are usually only as embarrassed as you are wrong kind of things.

What makes it worse is that you have a ton if time to think it over first.

No one jumps out and makes you full out a ballot on the spot when you're busy at work and you got frazzled.

A new study found Republicans and independents are twice as likely to conceal who they plan to cast a presidential ballot for than Democrats.

They're Republicans.

This seems strange. They will refuse to admit they are going to vote for Trump in a poll, but admit they aren't willing to state who they will vote for in a poll?

Smells more to me like they told poll #1 that they're going to vote for Trump, and in poll #2 that they didn't admit to favoring Trump so the polls would be "skewed".  Dean Chambers would be proud.

It's funny how you never hear of a progressive who's too embarassed to admit they value social justice, healthcare as a basic human right, the wealthy expected to pay their fair share of taxes, or a robust education system and championing basic human decency and empathy.

When people don't say how they voted it means they voted for trump or they didn't vote which means they voted for trump and should STFU about anything concerning America - like Colin Kaepernick - like all 20-somethings who will be too lazy to vote in November.

Additionally, the poll found that 10.1% of Trump supporters were "likely to be untruthful on phone surveys" in sharing who they support. Only 5.1% of Biden supporters said the same.

Surveyors collected answers as to why "'shy voters' are concerned about sharing their voting intentions," which elicited responses such as the fear answers would not be kept confidential, the belief that polls are biased, and a dislike of phone calls.

"I don't believe the information would be confidential, and I think it's dangerous to express an opinion outside of the current liberal viewpoint," CloudResearch reported as one response.

"Well, I probably wouldn't give my opinion period, but if pushed, I would not give my real opinion for fear of reprisal if someone found out," another said.

Yet another said, "Because most polls released to the public are slanted and aren't scientifically based. So, they are messing with the results of the survey from the beginning by knocking down one party or the other. I'm just trying to right the ship."


There is fear here. Chalk them up as big ass orange voters.

Found this on the page. As long as these assholes foot the bill for defending the shooters it will escalate faster.

2020-08-31 12:54:30 AM  
So, they KNOW that Trump is a malignant rectal zit and a shuffling demented nazi pig, and they're gonna vote for him anyway because they want to see the country burn down.

Yeah, I can see why they don't want their neighbors to know they have psychos living among them.

I would bet that most of these shy Trump voters also suffer from Paruresis (shy bladder syndrome) - people unable to pee if others are around because the others would know they were doing something dirty.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parures​i​s

I've known a few of these. One would always flush before peeing to cover up the sound.

We had another as a house guest. He would  get up in the middle of the night and make a big racket on his way to the bathroom so that everybody would know it was occupied and not surprise him there.

Are you in a safe (blue) state? Then I won't complain. But if you're in a swing state, please think hard about it. I know the Democrats suck, but sometimes you have to put up with suck, because "suck" is better than "fascist".

That said, it's your conscience and your vote, and you don't owe your vote to anyone. They have to earn it.

The Democratic party has forgotten votes are earned.

From the point of view of big cities, a vote within the two-party system is just a fart in the wind vs systemic injustice.

For example: Kenosha is run by a Democratic mayor. The police chief is hired by the mayor. Just today, the police stopped a church truck filled with supplies for the BLM protesters and arrested the church members.

Portland's Democratic mayor and Police Commissioner is currently doing a BSAB dance and trying to use the shooting that happened near (But not at) the protest as an excuse to crack more skulls.

Seattle's Democratic Mayor, who was one of Obama's hires, tear gassed the city for a week straight.

Biden doesn't have any feasible plan to address the root causes of the injustice. Trump doesn't either. He amplifies everything to the worst degree. But, Biden won't actually solve the problems (and, if his legislative history is any indication, he will make things worse).

There is no reason this election will turn out ok, and I'm really sad.

I always hide booze, but since I'm not married, I hide it from myself. That way, when I accidentally find it later, I can get excited, drunk, then drunkenly excited.

I don't have that trust. Joe Biden has notoriously surrounded himself with lobbyists, especially Stephen Richetti (campaign chair and former chief of staff).

You're a farking clown.

You claimed earlier today that Biden said "BSAB" (he didn't).

Yet you post nearly daily that BSAB.

"ONLY I CAN SAY THAT! HOW DARE HE"

You are literally a nutter. You are unable to disconnect yourself from your beliefs and just because you believe something does not make it a fact. You don't understand that.
What you believe is simply not true. You are on par with Trumpers.

You are unwilling to comprise, you routinely piss and moan a child's behavior that things have to be the way you envision them and no other, no compromising. That's not how anything works. Trumper.

You are part of a movement that has passed basically zero legislation, you have had no chance no fail. In addition you have this constant behavior of calling out failures, thats incredibly easy to do.

Failures do not = bad. Science fails all the time, its part of the process.

Your vote is not something you present at the rose ceremony on The Bachelor - US Government. It is an act - your chance to do something that influences how the government is run, and thus how your life is going to be. You need to determine what course of action will produce the best outcome, and follow it. 

It is not an opinion poll or a popularity contest. Voting is an action, and you should act accordingly.
