More interesting to me is:

The "unlisted" folks who couldn't be bothered to pick a side, have picked a side.
...and in numbers almost as large as the republicans.
That never bodes well for an incumbent.

Do not pay attention to any polls or "expectations" based on who has already voted.  If you haven't voted yet - VOTE!  If you have a mail ballot, drop it off at your canvasser's office if you can.  At this point, I wouldn't trust the postal service to get it there on time.

Kids we're separated from their parents during to Obama administration. There is one case where a girl has been separated from her parents for 6 years, as per NPR.

/I don't think Trump borrowed Obama's time machine.

Do you genuinely believe that false equivalency? I want to know if I should farky you as evil or just stupid.

Well I don't know the Obama's administrations numbers so I'd like to see actual data.

...

You're aware that immigration has been an issue that Trump has expounded on a great deal, that they built new facilities specifically to house all the children they've kidnapped, and you wonder if perhaps Obama - who never did any of that - might have kidnapped more children than Trump. Trump who has openly admitted to deliberately walking in on naked teenagers and has no particular empathy for others.

You think Obama might have a worse record on imprisoning kids than Trump?

I have my answer.

I was asked why I was voting for Trump and I explained it's strictly for financial reasons.

Someone mentioned kids being separated from their parents and I replied that according to NPR there is a girl that's been separated from her parents for 6 years. I hope you can do the math. I don't have data on how many child separations occurred during the Obama administration vs the Trump administration.

I'm okay with either one winning. I just prefer to protect my fin ...

No.

There was an interview with that asshole I caught on my newsfeed today.

It is solely because "they can't undo it." McConnell was gloating that everything that's been done the last four years will be undone pretty quickly, but "they'll be stuck with this [Barrett] for the next 40 years."

I've never heard anything like that from McConnell before. He openly said the only reason for Barrett was to stick it to the libs. And for no other reason.

He knows Trump is going to lose, he's going down too, and this is just a last mean fark you to America.

Even if they're all voting on Nov 3rd, Democratic turnout being already in is going to mean that even 1% reduction turnout among election-day voters -due to getting busy, being sick (maybe due to COVID you caught at a Trump rally?), not wanting to stand in line in the rain at the new consolidated polling location, or whatever- is all it should take for Biden to outperform the polls in enough states that it'll be an electoral landslide.

Trump has likely irreparably damaged his chances by attacking mail-in voting. Trump was the underdog during the last election and Americans love to cheer for an underdog. His campaign is running the same playbook but even his dumbest supporters know that Trump is not the underdog anymore. The closer to Election Day, the more chances his voters will decide he's a loser. Americans don't vote for losers. On Election Night, the Republican votes are just going to fizzle. I'm not expecting a huge shift to Democrats, rather the votes just won't be there. As it's been said many times before, if Trump loses you're going to find a lot of people who voted for him the first time, and no one who voted for him the second time.

I try to be centrist. Definitely agree with the left on global warming. I don't have an opinion on abortion. I'm for some gun control. I definitely want lower taxes or at least I don't want to see my taxes increased.

We did have record fires here in Northern California. I would really like to know how much of it is global warming related vs poor forestry management.


So as a centrist, you're ok with the increased right wing terrorism, the increased racism, and increased fascist activities of the current administration?

//I'm fine with Biden winning but prefer lower taxes, if possible.


Your CA property taxes are fixed under Prop 13, and state income taxes, local sales taxes have nothing to do with Trump. Chances are you're actually getting screwed under the tax system that Trump has passed. 

And as far as "socialism" goes - you're already paying for it. Through taxes and premiums payed by yourself or employers - but you're not seeing the benefits. All that money is just getting funneled out of your pockets into the ruling class.

Phony_Soldier: I'm okay with either one winning. I just prefer to protect my finances if I can.


By the way, those tax cuts are instant gratification but they increased the deficit by a significant amount, which is economic stupidity in a growing economy. That money WILL need to be paid back and will be a drag on our overall economic recovery from the recession we are now in. That may directly or indirectly have a negative effect on your personal finances in the long run.

If you REALLY are interested in long term financial protection it is more complicated than "TAX CUT GOOD! ME LIKE TRUMP!" The very wealthy have the ability to overlook this, if you are very wealthy then you may have a point. If you get a pay check you are probably just the type of voter Trump wants.

Seriously, you should look into this.

Kids we're separated from their parents during to Obama administration. There is one case where a girl has been separated from her parents for 6 years, as per NPR.

/I don't think Trump borrowed Obama's time machine.

Do you genuinely believe that false equivalency? I want to know if I should farky you as evil or just stupid.

Well I don't know the Obama's administrations numbers so I'd like to see actual data.


...

You're aware that immigration has been an issue that Trump has expounded on a great deal, that they built new facilities specifically to house all the children they've kidnapped, and you wonder if perhaps Obama - who never did any of that - might have kidnapped more children than Trump. Trump who has openly admitted to deliberately walking in on naked teenagers and has no particular empathy for others.

You think Obama might have a worse record on imprisoning kids than Trump?

Election day should be a national holiday. Not one of those jammed against a weekend so all the morons drag out their jet-skis holidays, but, mid-week (maybe a Tuesday). Absentee voting if you really need it. Enough polling places where anyone can vote in 10 minutes. (My own polling place, I've never even had to wait in a line. Not once in 25 years.)  

I haven't voted yet because I don't trust the mail-in system. I trust the Post Office - they're cool for the most part - except for the occasional missing package that vorps itself into someone's bag at the dizzy center. I'll vote at the poll on tuesday. 

We really need a national voting standard. Some states use punch cards, some use paper ballots, some use electronic, fark it wouldn't surprise me if Rhode Island was still using the old lever machines. 

In SF, we have paper ballots that are scanned by a machine. In a world where digital farkery is all too common, this is a pretty good system. You can always go back and count them by hand. (Assuming there's a verified provenance.)

And we need to teach Americans that maybe not every election can be settled the second the polls close on the east coast. Farkin football fans, "BUH WHO DONE WON?"

Give it a few days. Let the poll workers do their thing. 

I don't like early voting. I think it breaks more things than it fixes. Well, in most years. This year with the pandemic maybe it's ok. I don't know. But if a site like Fark that's filled with wacko gun nuts is tilting overwhelmingly to Biden, well, maybe we have a chance. 

Vote, lefties. 

I was motoring back from seeing some relatives out in the east bay a few weeks ago. Not more than half an hour from San Francisco. There was a group of people on a freeway overpass flying Trump flags. I rolled down my window, amongst much honking, and flipped those farkers the bird, at the exact same moment another guy in another pickup truck ahead of me did the same thing. 

It gave me hope.

But god damn. Bay area Trumpers. Th' fark are you thinking?

Okay, well most of my neighbors are Indian or Chinese Americans. They do pretty much the same thing I'm doing. I'm not worried about them starving or coming after me.

My Chinese American friend owns several houses in the Bay Area and most of the other people I know do well enough.

Boom.  No ACB, I like beer, or Not Garland.

Hell, have Biden come up to the Senate so he can sign 'em seconds after the vote closes.  He knows his way around those chambers, won't need to be hand-held by the majority leader.

Biden appoints 7 new members.  They take their seats .1 seconds after they are announced.  He can announce that Obama, Obama, Garland, Biden, Clinton, Clinton and Clinton are the new SCOTUS members right after signing.

The Democrats can undo everything the GOP has done on the afternoon of the 20th if they feel like it.  And they should.

I don't have that kind of optimism, and I will say that even if Trump loses he still can do a lot of temper tantrum damage on his way out, but I think it's interesting that Trump voters like yourself appear to have embraced that he's on his way out.

My Trump loving family member called me over the weekend to ask more about Biden policies. Not because they were going to vote for him, but they were resigned to a Biden presidency and were worried about what they'd read online about things he would do.

ansius: The thing is, unless there's a serious effort at throwing out these ballots, these are votes in the bag.

Trump is counting on a large turn out on the day to save his skin, but these are still potential votes. Many of these people may choose to just not turn up.

Biden has actual votes and he needs to rely less on potential votes than Trump.


Unless?  Have you been paying attention?  There already are serious efforts to throw out these ballots- the PA SC just slapped down two of them, but there are more cued up and ready to be filed in the hopes they get out into the Trump-packed federal courts

This *is* the Trump party strategy- they aren't trying to hide it.  They have publicly stated they think they can invalidate half of all mail in ballots.  That's being wildly optimistic (for them) but they only need to dispose of a few percent in key states.

And I'm pretty sure they will.

Pretty sure Trump is done.


Especially after last night's 60 Minutes interviews.

Trump's was as brutal a self-immolation as I've seen. The "I'll be right back" and then ditching, then sending Kayleigh out with the not-healthcare-plan book.

Then that cool-washcloth-on-my-fevered-head Biden interview. He was poised and calm and smart and kind. I felt my rising blood pressure ease, my racing heart slowed.

Let's run up the score! 400EV for Biden. We can do it, America!

So, 25-30% of the voters are "new or infrequent voters" - voters who did not feel motivated to vote for Trump previously - or anyone, really. But all of a sudden, after 4 years, this surge in voters kicks into gear?? Yeah, they aren't there to re-affirm an incumbent POTUS😅

The more likely people are to wait til Election Day the more likely they are to not vote at all.

Shiat happens. Things come up. They roll up and it looks like a giant hassle, or a multi-hour wait, so they leave. Work runs over that day. They just plain forget until they turn on the TV that evening. And lots of people aren't super-into politics, so they'll take a pass if it seems difficult or annoying or an all-day affair.

All of the above is why a big early voting advantage is fantastic and matters greatly. Make it happen.

I agree that money will be need to be paid back which is why I'm trying to secure a nice retirement. I'm not convinced social security will be there for me (maybe a minimal amount?) even if I live long enough to collect.

See it it comments like that that moved you from a (ignorant) green to a mid level red.  I do not think you quite understand how hard it is to get to a mid level red.

Picture this - all your neighbours are starving and homeless, and yours is the last house with food in it ... .

At that point which group would you like to belong to?

Oh and just to add flavour, all your neighbours have guns ... !

Okay, well most of my neighbors are Indian or Chinese Americans. They do pretty much the same thing I'm doing. I'm not worried about them starving or coming after me.

My Chinese American friend owns several houses in the Bay Area and most of the other people I know do well enough.

I think your description of what could happen is overly dramatic.

Everything you type seems to say you are all in it with us, but at the same time says fark you all, I have mine.

You are ever so American.


I try to be centrist. Definitely agree with the left on global warming. I don't have an opinion on abortion. I'm for some gun control. I definitely want lower taxes or at least I don't want to see my taxes increased.

We did have record fires here in Northern California. I would really like to know how much of it is global warming related vs poor forestry management.

jst3p: Phony_Soldier: I'm okay with either one winning. I just prefer to protect my finances if I can.

By the way, those tax cuts are instant gratification but they increased the deficit by a significant amount, which is economic stupidity in a growing economy. That money WILL need to be paid back and will be a drag on our overall economic recovery from the recession we are now in. That may directly or indirectly have a negative effect on your personal finances in the long run.

If you REALLY are interested in long term financial protection it is more complicated than "TAX CUT GOOD! ME LIKE TRUMP!" The very wealthy have the ability to overlook this, if you are very wealthy then you may have a point. If you get a pay check you are probably just the type of voter Trump wants.

Seriously, you should look into this.


Actually, I agree with you. It's another thing I can't stand about the Republican Party. They scream about the deficit and then spend like crazy when they're in office.

However, I still think I can do better with Republicans. I'll try to collect gains while they boost the market (Tesla and Apple pre-split) and when it crashes hopefully can pick up bargains. I did great during the housing crisis and would take advantage of that opportunity again.

Serious question, and I'd like to hear your reply.

So racism, misogyny, us being a laughing stock on the world stage, kids being separated from their parents and now we can't find them and so much more is cool with you so long as you get a tax cut and your 401k improves?

You are disgusting.

Kids we're separated from their parents during to Obama administration. There is one case where a girl has been separated from her parents for 6 years, as per NPR.

/I don't think Trump borrowed Obama's time machine.

Do you genuinely believe that false equivalency? I want to know if I should farky you as evil or just stupid.

Well I don't know the Obama's administrations numbers so I'd like to see actual data.

...

You're aware that immigration has been an issue that Trump has expounded on a great deal, that they built new facilities specifically to house all the children they've kidnapped, and you wonder if perhaps Obama - who never did any of that - might have kidnapped more children than Trump. Trump who has openly admitted to deliberately walking in on naked teenagers and has no particular empathy for others.

You think Obama might have a worse record on imprisoning kids than Trump?

I have my answer.


I was asked why I was voting for Trump and I explained it's strictly for financial reasons.

Someone mentioned kids being separated from their parents and I replied that according to NPR there is a girl that's been separated from her parents for 6 years. I hope you can do the math. I don't have data on how many child separations occurred during the Obama administration vs the Trump administration.

I'm okay with either one winning. I just prefer to protect my finances if I can.

It's strictly based on taxes. We pay 9% sales tax in Santa Clara county, state income tax, property taxes, etc.

/I don't think Biden is different enough from Trump to make a difference.
//I'm fine with Biden winning but prefer lower taxes, if possible.

Your CA property taxes are fixed under Prop 13, and state income taxes, local sales taxes have nothing to do with Trump. Chances are you're actually getting screwed under the tax system that Trump has passed. 

And as far as "socialism" goes - you're already paying for it. Through taxes and premiums payed by yourself or employers - but you're not seeing the benefits. All that money is just getting funneled out of your pockets into the ruling class.


I understand that Trump has nothing to do with my state and local taxes. We just happen to have a household income that would be impacted by Biden's tax plan. I'm not going to lose sleep over it but it's something I'd like to avoid, if possible.
