"I suppose the key is turnout."
historically, yes. however, with absentee ballots (we have seen ~1% wins)
and internet voting, the importance of Showing Up to Vote on Election Day
is dwindling.

The Republican party isn't the one complaining about white male privilege every chance it gets.

1) He has a lot more than an "edge", he has basically a large part of the DNC machine behind him. That means money, favorable press articles, media appearances...he's getting the rockstar treatment right out of the gate while others are being largely ignored in comparison.

2) How can it escape you? He's been selected by the party elite to carry the standard, same as 2016. There are a lot of people behind the scenes making sure you're reading good things about him, hearing good things about him on TV and so forth it's a pretty big network helping him cut to the front of the line so to speak.

I'm the same age as Biden, I get tired quickly and easily, some days I'm tired for no reason.

Biden and Sanders have over 80% of the total support.
What is this extreme focus on race that Republicans seem to have? It's really all they post about these days.


Perhaps get out more.

Some might take two white men being the frontrunners among the Democrats as a sign that maybe Democrats in general aren't as anti-white and anti-man as they perceive, but then they would have one less thing to whine about.

And yet all we've heard today are the BAD things about him. There really is not a massive conspiracy to elect Biden.


Sweet Jesus. Is there anything NOT a conspiracy to you people?


The DNC can't help it if old Democrats like Biden. The young ones sure don't.
