Biden is simply "biding" his time as the front runner. There is no reason for him to be in attack mode.

If he is the nominee, he will be ready to land punches. Biden knows a rat when he sees one and he would love to spar with Trump.

I dont get it. The guy has simply transferred more money and power into the hands of the already well off.
The people like what he's doing. I've seen absolutely zero valid complaints about the economy which is the main thing most people care about. No one with any sort of business/economy sense wants free healthcare, more labor unions, welfare in any form, more paid vacations for low wage workers while giving more money to them. Democrats have no alternative to the conservative agenda no matter which one is in office, no matter how offensive the conservative might be, no matter how many people will be shown the exit. People actually are enjoying his offensive remarks and seem to want more. There will never be another Democrat/liberal president or leader of any sort in the U.S. Democrats did this to themselves the same as America made lots of other mistakes that it will never repair.

What's with all of these threads all of a sudden talking about how badly the Democrats are going to lose next November? You guys are sounding a little worried.

Almost 80% of the people want to require employers to provide paid vacation. You're delusional if you dont think ordinary Americans support labor rights.

Trump has just entered office at the tail end of a business cycle and has given himself and his cronies a big tax break. You think Trump is responsible for the business cycle, but thats not how the economy works. Trump hasnt provided anything for ordinary Americans. You can call labor rights, labor unions, Medicare, Social Security, disability insurance "welfare" as much as you want, it doesnt change the fact that workers are getting the short end of the stick under this administration.

We all should be worried.

Trump has a far more efficient, experienced campaign machine this time around, and still has Putin's backing. Moscow Mitch is protecting that for him.

Republicans are continuing with their gerrymandering, ballot harvesting, voter suppression, ... Still have those electronic voting machines that can be hacked by an 11 year old.

It all comes down to turnout.

Putin knows that. It's what was behind all the anti-Clinton social media campaign.

At 55% turnout, Trump wins.

Doesn't matter. None of that stuff matters.

Trump is going to win, and the reason will be because of the nutty candidates the DNC has presented.

We're terrified.
That's why voter turnout will be so large. We are not sure America could stand 4 years of what we have seen on the debate stage.

Another one size fits all Democrats are bad thread? Rinse and repeat when desperation flares. What is it now, six or eight GOP congressman "retiring" from the house and not running for re-election in 2020? It feels like a rinse and repeat of the mid terms. The GOP just lost it's only black congressman from Texas. How many women are in the Republican houses? Looks like the party of white old men is dying.
