Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: raerae1980: it really all hinges on which party gets more turnout.

Which party gets turn out AND where they turn out.  An extra 50,000 Democrats turning out in CA is different than an extra 50,000 turning out in PA.

For real, Dude.  Hubby got discouraged the other day and started talking about voting 3rd party and i tried to talk him out of it.   But he's more Gen-X than me, and wasn't budgen.  His apathy was showing.   This was before RBG's death, though.

What do you think it would take to get him to vote for Biden?


I would suggest blowjobs. Lots of blowjobs.

Pointing out that it is 100% impossible for a third party to win this election since none, as far as I can tell, are on all the  ballots, and thus that voting third party is effectively voting for Trump?

No, that's been shown not to work, particularly since raerae explicitly said they tried.  What I was asking is what he needs from the Democratic Party in order to convince him to vote.  It might help us gain insight into why other voters are planning on voting third-party or abstaining.


Spouses at this point need to resort to ALL kinds of incentives to get their significant other to vote for Biden.

Even the "forbidden" zones.

Target Builder: This is why the GOP is going ALL IN.

They've spent 40+ years building an ethnic based coalition with a shrinking demographic, that's almost certain to be unable to win the Presidency in 2024. If they lose this round they'll regroup, and rebrand, and rebuild with a new coalition eventually- but it'll take many many years.

A more viable path for them is to make elections not matter anymore.


Once Texas goes blue (which it will) the GOP's days of winning the Presidency, control of Congress, etc. are over.

No amount of blowjobs could get me to even lie to a Tinder hookup about voting for trump.


Yeah, I was just suggesting them for motivational purposes. My lawn would probably be three feet high if those weren't in play.

BMFPitt: People have been confidently declaring this since at least GW Bush's first term.


It is happening, just not as fast as some of us would like. A lot of the assholes we all hate now, what is fixing to happen to them, they can't buy their way out of this time (at least not yet). They are all at the end of their lives.

Not to mention, the current administration is going out of its way to kill old people.

Pretty much can't see it improving for the GOP, either. Unless just getting old makes everyone an asshole. Not really seeing that. But it could be, I guess.

Well if young people voted as reliably as old people have we'd be talking about President-Elect Sanders.
