Dude! I'm tellin' ya! And I think it can happen. If it was anybody but Trump it would be an absolute landslide. I have more faith in left leaning independents than others here and believe if Biden picks Warren the landslide will happen.

Left leaning independents will not come out and vote for you because you are a Democrat. Democrats resent that. We don't care. But if you throw us a bone we'll jump on it like a starving dog.

What do you imagine would have happened if Hillary chose Bernie to be VP? Tim who? F*ck Hillary...that's what happened.
Trump won.
The left's fault.
Democratic arrogance is what elected Trump. It can happen again, but it doesn't have to.

Charlamagne da God said if Biden picks Klobachar it's over for Joe, the black community won't support that.

Hmm

B*tch jailed thousands of them. It was her job

Joe doesn't need a black running mate, he's already got their vote.

Joe needs the left. Warren is not a bona fide lefty but she has the right ideas. Prospective Democratic voters know her, she did pretty well in the primary run ups. She and Biden don't get along very well but they're talking.

When do they usually pick a running mate...?

You betcha. Over 40% of existing voters support Trump and blame him for nothing. So far it seems that the elderly of Florida MAY be backing off Trump but even that is open to question. Then there are the poor, they simply do not vote! (no help there) - same for the young. Who knows what the lefty purists will do.

Basically, most of the polls show trump down something like 3 points overall. By the time he is through demonizing the currently silent Biden I suspect that will be seriously changed.

He is currently painted, by the right, as hiding in his basement, and almost completely silent (which seems, pretty much, true) so, who knows?

What has always confused me is the behavior of the Republicans of the Senate. Right now trump is primarying Jeff Sessions with an unknown, but loyal, supporter. Sessions was one of his first, and most loyal of Republican politicians. Trump made him the AG and he did his bidding, pretty much, but it wasn't enough for our Lord and Master Trump. In other words, Trump will turn against a supporter at the flip of a coin. There are other examples.

So, I used to assume that the Republican politicians have not lost their minds, are not stupid, and can function. I don't anymore. Now they all line up and publicly swear fealty at the drop of a hat. This is, I think, pretty brand new and I can't remember this happening before. They are doing everything but genuflecting, and that just may be coming. One would think this would give the Dems a shot at every one of them but, I guess, I am wrong about that too.

We live, I fear, in VERY STRANGE TIMES.......

And over 50% of existing voters do not.

The young might vote for Biden if he picks Warren, they like her pretty well. Many are so disillusioned they will never ever vote. Neither party has has represented them.

The lefty purists will mostly vote for Biden because they aren't stupid. Some small percentage will not. The lefty purists will be blamed for any Democratic loss. Because Democrats are so f*cking wonderful that everyone who is not a Republican owes them their vote and eternal devotion. Warren is a Progressive, better than your average Democrat and that small percentage will get smaller if he picks Warren.

Biden is not silent! Did you see him laying that wreath? Did you see him wearing a mask? Did you hear him calling Trump an "Absolute fool" for not wearing one? Biden has already become the defacto president of the united states...making the statements the President should be making, deporting himself as the President should be but isn't.

I watched him lay the wreath - without saying a word. When Trump laid his wreath he talked, and talked, and also lied. It was, in other words a great opportunity to say something - he didn't. Later he was interviewed and THEN said something. The problem is that when presented with an opportunity - use it! biden doesn't.

I am going to vote for him and I REALLY want him to win!

and over 20% of the 50% live in CA or NY. So if the 40% of Trump supporters win their states, it stands to reason (making appropriate assumptions) he will win electoral vote.

It is not about who is more popular nationally, but who has more votes in those critical battleground states.

The last five polls show that Trump is losing in approval and especially losing when asked how he's performing during the pandemic.

Real Clear Politics:
  • Fox News (Trump Trending Down)
  • Rasmussen (Trump Trending Down)
  • Polticial / Morning Consult (Trump Trending Down)
  • Reuters / Ipsos (Trump Trending Down)
  • Economist / You Gov (Trump Trending Down)
