  1. This doesn’t matter when Ivanka owns the company designing the voting machines.

    • Another good reason to vote by absentee ballot.

    • Peachy Keen | June 8, 2020 at 2:02 PM | Reply

      November 3 isn’t the only vote you get. You can vote with your feet. You can vote with your dollar. Mom & Pop Shop is your neighbor. Mega-Monster-Super-Corporate-Store is not your friend.

    • M Allen: Oh, so that’s how it’ll be Rigged this year. Makes sense.

    Why is it still 40+percent. I’m not believing until it’s 70/20

  3. M OchunCuascut | June 8, 2020 at 11:07 AM | Reply

    I tell you that 41% doesnt move a bit. That’s the systemic problem right there.

    • Aljoscha Long | June 8, 2020 at 2:58 PM | Reply

      One can see easily that it’s not political, but a cult. That’s why the 41% don’t move. is very interesting. The polls too. But even more the comparison to other presidents. Their appoval rates went up when they did things people liked and down when the did crap. Not so with Trump. No matter what he does – the cult stays with him. (also funny to see how all other presidents rarely went below Trump’s constant low approval ratings. The only time his approval ratings were >50 was shortly after his election.)

    • @Micah Ben-Avraham Yeah but that doesn’t mean anything useful. Political party polarization in the US is far higher now than at any point you have data for. Different political climate than George HW Bush or anyone else dealt with.
      Trump has no real ability to acquire a larger base than he has. There can’t be a “landslide” no matter who wins 2020.

      @A Whi I’ve been complaining about the war on drugs causing a divide between the police and the policed for decades. As those selling on the black drug market get better and better arms, neighborhoods became more dangerous. The police responded by obtaining military arms and armor. And it’s been going on forever. Look at the stamp act, that required a federal stamp to grow hemp, but no stamps were ever issued. When Prohibition ended, they went after “ditch weed” because, at the time, black people used it more than whites.

      @Elaniago I’d be happier if they were required to teach science, not mythology, when it comes to the origin of the species. And all schools need to teach math better. Our people can’t compete in the world coming from high schools that don’t teach calculus.

  4. missing the point Joe – it’s not a few bad apples. it’s a system that makes the rotten fruit.

    • Yep change the ROOT will only change the fruit

    • One by Land, Two if by Sea Run if by Air | June 8, 2020 at 3:01 PM | Reply

      It was disappointing to hear the complete ignorance of the problem coming from Joe. It is indeed a structural problem that fights change and prevents officer accountability.

    • Carlo Oblomov | June 8, 2020 at 5:04 PM | Reply

      Right. the system fosters police solidarity over truth. Plenty of good cops out there doing tremendous work but they just won’t stool on the bad ones so the bad apples keep on and rot the whole basket.

    • Zebra Zagadore | June 8, 2020 at 5:41 PM | Reply

      @Terrier Queen “Dominionism” is a term I became familiar with for the first time today. I think it is the word to define what you are describing.

  5. “A president doesn’t have to be brilliant,  He doesn’t have to be clever. You can hire clever.”
    “But you can’t buy courage and decency, and you can’t rent a strong moral sense. A president must bring those things with him.”   Peggy Noonan

    • @Thank you for your compliance her comment was you don’t have to be brilliant, I think there’s a difference between brilliance and intelligence, of course trump is neither, but intelligence could be demonstrated by knowing which shoe goes on which foot or knowing what you don’t know.

    • A Krenwinkle | June 8, 2020 at 7:49 PM | Reply

      @RuBaron715 I never saw homeless until Reagan got in, and I was a grown man even then. And for everyone’s information, Biden, if he wins, won’t be the first president not playing with a full deck upstairs. There is no way in the world Peggy Noonan didn’t know Reagan’s Alzheimer’s didn’t begin after retirement.

    • Polly Ticks | June 8, 2020 at 8:34 PM | Reply

      Trump is a hero. He suffers from bone spurs and he still leads his base around like an ox with a ring in it’s nose.

    • GunsDrawn 44 | June 8, 2020 at 9:30 PM | Reply

      This is for all of you uneducated, simple minded morons that can’t think for yourselves, I going to put this as simply as I can, so you can understand it. Trump was really liked and respected, before he became president. For all you idiot’s that say Trump isn’t intelligent and is stupid, you don’t become a multi billionaire and president of the United States being unintelligent and stupid. I have some advice for you uneducated, simple minded idiot’s, get a job, move out of your parents basement and start supporting yourselves.

    • @GunsDrawn 44 when you’re dead you’re dead and you don’t know you’re dead, and it’s only difficult for the people near you, ………. it’s just like being stupid❗

      You people should pick up a history book instead of playing video games and pretending to play politics.

    • michael dezotell | June 8, 2020 at 9:59 PM | Reply

      TexasrepoJoe D maybe you should be the one to open a history book, instead of reading more from Q

    • @michael dezotell …true,some leaders don;t like him but they know that he is not some wishy washy president they can walk all over like they did with Obama. Trump he’s not a polished, sleek, lying politician and that’s why people like him. I do wish he would be more humble and listen and learn his job better but i’m willing to give him a chance. Obama was a polished, sleek politican and he was worst then Trump. Obamacare was and is a failure and didn’t come close to doing what Obama said it would do, he lied and said you can keep your doctors, the preiums skyrocketed. He was such a coward when it came to terrorist, even the military Generals says he was a failure at protecting, he drew that “red line ” in the sand with the syrians then coward he was backed off. Trump when dealing with North Korea let that little dough boy know he was no Obama and called his bluff and the guy backed down. Some world leaders may not like Trump but they know not to mess with him. Obama caused a lot of racial tension in America, it’s not Trump that started this it was Obama, and then the Daca program which is illegal… Point is not being a lying polished sleek politician Trump is doing a good job

      krisluvkev all that typing you did and I can’t even read it since you started by saying trump isn’t a liar. If you wanna be real and talk about facts I’ll talk to you but that is Bull to act like trump is honest. He lies ALL the time. About silly little things that are very easily fact checked, but maybe you are just too close minded to fact check him yourself. But it just makes you look stupid to pretend he doesn’t lie

    • TexasrepoJoe D | June 8, 2020 at 10:49 PM | Reply

      @michael dezotell Trump lies!
      Let the lies destroy you and how you run your life!
      Trump is the center of your life.
      Probably how you choose your friends is based on him. You will do anything necessary to remove him including joining Antifa and starting a civil war. Sound familiar?
      ANYTHING to seize power because your hatred for the president is worth it. Son, wake up.

  7. 😂😂😂😂 Anyone else having a “Trump’s NEVER going to be president “ deja vu moment?

      That would be Trump Trauma, with flashbacks. But a much larger share of America’s voters is stronger and wiser now after huge MAGA FAIL.

    • Jeff Gleason You wish. Dems want America to fail, it’s the only way to get elected. Trump is even more popular now. Listen to me now and believe me in November.

      @Eamon O’Connell Since you are willfully ignorant: “defund police” means easing their responsibility to deal with social problems. Like homelessness, drug addiction, mental health, ect. It’s about putting money where it should go so the police aren’t asked to solve problems outside the scope of law enforcement.

    • Eamon O'Connell | June 8, 2020 at 3:35 PM | Reply

      @One by Land, Two if by Sea Run if by Air again. You didn’t answer the question you think i don’t know. Typical liberal.
      What does DEFUND THE POLICE mean.

      @Eamon O’Connell Exactly what i said it does. You proved my point. Even when someone spoon-feeds you the answer, you can’t put the effort in to understand it.

    • Good to hear that we have someone clever like you. All those riots will give Trump another 4 years

    • and their dear leader has an IQ of 45

  10. When that old man was shoved to the ground and laid bleeding and unconscious he was ignored by about fifty cops. These same cops later resigned their positions on that squad because the two officers who pushed the old man where suspended without pay, later hundreds of officers cheered the two after they pleaded not guilty. So, I am pretty dam tired of hearing politicians and commentators tell us how marvelous police officers are.

  11. They need to hand out voter registration forms at every protest.

  12. just as we discovered that people who wanted to abuse children where drawn to jobs where they had access and opportunity to do so i believe that people who enjoy having power over others and violent behaviors are drawn to seek jobs where they can get away with this …..we need to crack down and clean up all law enforcement to weed these people out and ensure that this is not continuing

    failed education system=failed democracy

    • YES!!! But let’s look at the source. PARENTS ARE NOT TEACHING KIDS. I come from a 40 year history of teaching. The breakdown of discipline and manners in the HOME is where the problem started—and it is GETTING WORSE all the time! Try to have a 5 minute conversation with any kid of any age. CAN’T be done. If you don’t have a screen for them to look at—they will go find one.

      No, the American public is better educated now than anytime in our history…rather the problem is unchecked extreme political views and social media allowing lies and misinformation to influence.

    • HarleyHilderson | June 8, 2020 at 2:23 PM | Reply

      Electoral college + voter suppression + gerrymandering + uninformed electorate (failed education system) + MASSIVE propaganda in main stream media (even MSNBC) + money in politics (legalized bribery) = failed democracy.

    • failed education system=more democrat voters
      just what they need

    • @Appleman1964 The american public are mostly misinformed. Many kids can’t even find their own country on a map without borders & many can’t name their representative……but they can give you the latest scuttlebutt about the Kardashians.

  14. Polls mean nothing if you stay at home on election day and don’t participate in democracy.

    • @Warm Violet … naivete = ignorant bigot…

      i am voting anything to get rid of that nut case

    • Biden hasn’t done anything positive for me. Biden’s behavior in just this election cycle has been bad. Biden hasn’t learned from his past record and he is pandering to pick a female VP. I’m not voting for Biden. Trump is dangerous, but Biden is bad also.
      I probably wont vote for US President.

  15. If you have not registered to vote yet STOP everything and do that. Register and vote like your entire future depends of it because it does.

  16. 51% on the economy will soon collapse.

  17. I can’t wait to wait in line to vote in Nov.
