  1. Republicans have lost the popular vote 6/7 past Presidential Elections.

    In 2016 Trump lost by almost 3 million votes- I don’t know of many countries in the world where you can lose by millions of votes and still become President.

    1. Adam N • So here is the tricky thing about the Electorate college.

      There is a cumulative number representing different regions in a State! If enough people vote in that state their vote is the voice of the Electorate and the majority takes all the Electorate votes.

      If there is not a large enough majority then that state is at the mercy of it’s Elsctorate’s votes which is a winner take all process.

      Our forefathers created the process when we were at war with Britain and incase Britain at the time slipped in favored colonies either by subterfuge or bribes! So now as long as a majority votes the Electorates should not even be as big of a factor as it was in the 2016 election!

    2. That’s because it’s not popularity contest, do you remember civics class in high school? It also keeps candidates from just staying in high population states only to garner their votes and ignore the rest of the country as a result.

    3. @Slayer 399 That was all well and good before there was an Internet and TV… Everyone can see what a person stands for from there living rooms now.
      We are using a antiquated system that was conceived of when people were still riding horses. LOL
      All the electorate College has done in the last few decades is stolen the presidency OVER and OVER again from the majority. It needs to go!

  2. It’s up to the majority – if Trump wins with minority support that is the sign of a sick system – electoral college should be scrapped

    1. It is not easy to change the electoral college. You should not count on that. We need a plan for reforms which is achievable.

    2. Aero Tohnan • So the *Electorate college is only a factor when the race is close and there is no majority vote, otherwise majority vote is the Electorate college determinant! So get out and vote everyone!*

    3. If he wins America will be a dictatorship. He will NEVER leave that white house. Best thing to do is vote and get everyone you know to vote! Before its too late. I just want a good nights rest.

    1. Don’t give up, vote like your lives depend on it. Watching from abroad and can’t believe what is happening in the United States. It’s like he’s using the Virus as a final Solution. Is there a hidden agenda ? Scary times for our American friends but never forget that your Allies are with all of you in the fight to retain your Constitutional Democratic Liberal Republic. Send him a message he’ll never forget. Vote Biden/Harris & put an end to the .

    2. The FBI has an active criminal investigation into the Biden family
      youtube.com/watch?v=OquVOwgW9wI&t=13s Vote West/Tidball or Jorgenson/Cohen

  3. Trump only knows one thing, cheating. He’s been doing it his whole life and he’s passing it onto his children.

    2. @MIster Xman fake and fake!! Trump won’t have any real evidences to harm Hunter Biden. All is the laptop that he forgot. It is insane and fake news, try to attack Hunter Biden, but we are people still choosing Biden over Trump. He is a nightmare for this country.

    3. @Hang Dinh you can still vote Biden And acknowledge the wrongdoing his son did, it doesn’t have to be that one of them is right about everything and the other is wrong about everything.

    1. @Dobs R And what about Norway, Denmark, and Sweden? Are you protecting us from being the Number 1 country in life expectancy, fetal death rate, education and the happiness index? FO

    2. @Dobs R The exact opposite is true. Trump is leading the country to authoritarianism and possibly fascism. He has total lack of regard for the law when it suits him and has loaded up every aspect of government with his loyalists. “Loyalists” in the sense that he demands personal loyalty to himself and not the constitution or our country. There is a abundant evidence of that throughout the last four years. Have a look at the conduct of the A.G. Bill Barr, he holds the office of Attorney General which is supposed to be independent of the executive and yet on every occasion he is seen to be supporting Trump despite his criminal conduct and his endless lying.
      A vote for Trump will further destroy our democracy. Vote Biden/Democrat to save this nation.

  4. This is terrible and pathetic vote the Republicans out that are behind this please America I have faith in u.

    1. The entire republican party must be purged & rebuilt from scratch! Rotten to the core & proven 100% unfit to hold ANY power!

    2. Darren, our economy is coming back strong, you really are uninformed and stupid if you vote for Dementia Joe Kid Touch! KAG

    3. @Tara Reading If he wins America will be a dictatorship. He will NEVER leave that white house. Best thing to do is vote ans get everyone you know to vote! Before its too late. I just want a good nights rest.

  5. Latinos for BIDEN. Vote BLUE for sanity, logic, and honesty. Trump and GOP are driving this country into the ditch. He has given up on the virus. Don’t let the GOP and Trump steal this election.

    1. J Flow, I got arrested with Nelson Mandela! Corn Pop was a bad dude and he ran with some bad boys! Obama was the first clean intelligent black man! I got hairy legs,that,that,that,that,that turn blonde in the sun and kids would rub my legs and jump on my lap and that taught me about roaches! DEMENTIA JOE KID TOUCH!

    2. Please use your Constitutionally Guaranteed Right to Vote. Vote early at an authorized polling place, Or Drop Off/deliver in-person (In-person, Absentee Voting) at an Authorized County Registrar Office or Drop Box, BEFORE election day on Nov. 3rd. When you get your ballot, fill it out carefully. Then put your ballot in the Inner Secrecy Envelope, and insert in the Outer Declaration Envelope, and sign it. (Check your drivers license and try to match your signature before signing the Ballot or Outer envelope). https://www.betterknowaballot.com/

  6. The problem is the odds are stacked against the majority. Gerrymandering, legal voter suppression, a stacked Supreme Court. This iteration of the GOP needs to be purged.

    1. @Midknight. At one point they will be voted out. So much death. So many lives destroyed. Where will any of them truly be safe?

    2. You do know it’s not a “majority vote”, but each state? Winning those generally helps you win the Presidency. That’s otherwise called mob rule…

    3. @ROBIN WILTON Trump and his brainwashed followers all need a mental evaluation. You’re worshipping a lying, reality tv actor over doctors, SCIENTISTS, and researchers.. Do your OWN research….#BIDENHARRIS2020

    4. @ROBIN WILTON when america is a dictatorship then I guess you will be happy when our rights are stripped away??

  7. Chris Trump will lose. Do Not worry you sweet self over it. I have already went in to vote in person. I even brought my neighbor with me since his car needed some repair work. I have faith. So should you.

  8. Well Chris, that’s a good summary of the game that’s afoot. They can cheat with no consequences, so they are.

    1. They’re doing a lot about it. You’re just not paying attention. Every one of these law suits Republicans bring to silence voters are being furiously fought in court.
