  1. Dump Trump and Corona with 1 little vote! What a deal!

    • Valerie Galvan | October 12, 2020 at 7:37 PM | Reply

      @Mueller Time are you retired? Do you have a retirement plan? Will you need to depend on social security and medicare which are paid for by payroll tax deductions? Think about it.

    • PleaseTickle Me | October 12, 2020 at 8:17 PM | Reply

      @Valerie Galvan Generally though, if you take a distribution from an IRA or 401k before age 59 ½, you will likely owe both federal income tax (taxed at your marginal tax rate) and a 10% penalty on the amount that you withdraw, in addition to any relevant state income tax…I’d rather have social security when I retire.

    • Valerie Galvan | October 12, 2020 at 9:07 PM | Reply

      @PleaseTickle Me I agree.

      @Mueller Time you forgot the part where your Republican jesus walks on water. If Trump was winning why is he so desperate???

    • Best Deal!!! EVER!!! I’M IN!!!
      🎩NOVEMBER 2020 💙

  2. If you were one of those people pulling your hair out and running through the streets in protest after Donald won in 2016, try something different this time. VOTE!!!

  3. i’d say it’s not a rejection of how trump has governed so much as a rejection of how trump has refused to govern..

    His argument is a lot of mail-in votes = victory? Please. It’s about total electoral college points, and the GOP will play dirty any way they can. Look at battleground states and speak to working class if we wanna win.

    • Ha! Good luck with that ! Joe doesn’t know if he’s against fracking or not !

    • @Michael Minugh Agreed…but that’s what they’re doing, that’s why Joe Biden is the right candidate for the time. As for the votes, all he’s saying is that it’s kind of hard to cover up a landslide victory.

  5. I would love to see the Repubs lose every state.

  6. “[Tyrants] injure and oppress the people under their administration, provoking them to cry out and complain, and then make that very outcry the foundation for new oppressions and persecutions.”~Andrew Hamilton, 1735 (NOT Alexander Hamilton)

    The Trial of John Peter Zenger for Libeling the Colonial Government in 1735 is why we have free speech and free press on this continent, a transcript of the trial, which was a popular little book at the time, was in possession of Thomas Jefferson when drafting the Declaration of Independence and inspired the First Amendment to the Constitution.

    This is a short section of the full transcript:

  7. He isn’t out until he’s out. Also, he needs to be hammered out and diminished so his enabling narcissist poison is thoroughly discredited.

    • Good point!

    • Better yet deported for treason.

    • GOP needs to get their a$$e$ handed to them across the election for signing up and allowing Trumps incompetence for 4 years.

    • I try not to be unsympathetic to where the Trump crowd is. They had a whole land as an individualistic playground and only minimal call to care about their neighbors. That’s a sinfully intoxicating brew. The problem in America wasn’t too much Christian belief, it was too much of a selfish twist on Christian belief. Involuntary chattel slavery, especially, was never supposed to be a thing done by Christians. It was supposed to be converted to voluntary employment when a master believed. Neither were Christians supposed to hide behind a worldly system to not care in both spirit and material ways about neighbors.

      If, as appears more and more likely, that old bad paradigm is forced to fade, it’s a good thing. But don’t walk out on God, for He won’t excuse your refusal either. Instead, get closer. Look for answers in sacrificial Christian love for humanitarian problems, and yes, forgive your blind, erring neighbors as you would have God forgive you.

    • hawkturkey if you have faith, you are also responsible to see and resist temptation. When you fail, it is also up to you to acknowledge the failure and seek redemption.
      Freedom with responsibility.

  8. Hindsight is 2020,. Republicans have a chance for a do-over on November 3rd.
    A vote for a third party is a vote for Trump.
    Patriotic Americans put Country before party!
    Let’s Unite Americans again!

    • Deborah Freedman | October 12, 2020 at 7:32 PM | Reply

      After what happened in 2000, informed voters knew that voting third party was voting for Trump in 2016. I voted for Clinton. I’m just sorry other voters had such short memories.

    • Donald sure drew the worst out of the right, treating him as a divine oracle, not a wild man who needed to be taken with a ton of salt.


  10. People who haven’t heretofore participated in elections have realized how badly we need to get rid of trump.

    Ignore polls and vote like your vote is the only one that counts!

    • I called asking if they counted my drop box ballot. I voted a week ago and they said they’re just catching up counting ballots from a week ago. She called back when it was counted but they have a lot of ballots

    • @Claudette J NBA Ad, republicans have been trying to suppress the black vote since the blacks were allowed to vote.

    • Your vote IS the only vote that counts!!!

      The Power of One Vote
      The Power of One Vote, Your Vote. Use It.
      By the Smallest of Margins…

      In 1800 – Thomas Jefferson was elected President by one vote in the House of Representatives after a tie in the Electoral College.

      In 1824 – Andrew Jackson won the presidential popular vote but lost by one vote in the House of Representatives to John Quincy Adams after an Electoral College dead-lock.

      In 1845 – The U.S. Senate passed the convention annexing Texas by two votes (27/25).

      In 1846 – President Polk’s request for a Declaration of War against Mexico passed by one vote.

      In 1867 – The Alaska purchase was ratified in the Senate by two votes: 37-2, paving the way for future statehood.

      In 1868 – President Andrew Johnson was Impeached but not convicted because the Senate was one vote shy of the necessary two thirds required.

      In 1876 – Samuel Tilden won the presidential popular vote but came up one electoral vote shy and lost to Rutherford B. Hayes.

      In 1941 – Congress amended the active-service component of the Selective Service Act from one year to two-and-a-half years by one vote, 203 to 202.

      In 1948 – A Texas Convention voted for Lyndon B. Johnson over ex-Governor Coke Steven in a contested Senatorial election.

      In 1962 – Governors of Maine, Rhode Island and North Dakota were elected by an average of one vote per precinct.

      In 1977 – Vermont State representative Sydney Nixon was seated as an apparent one vote winner, 570 to 569. Mr. Nixon resigned when the State House determined, after a recount, that he had actually lost to his opponent Robert Emond 572 to 571.

      In 1989 – A Lansing, Michigan School District millage proposition failed when the final recount produced a tie vote 5,147 for, and 5,147 against. On the original vote count, votes against the proposition were ten more than those in favor. The result meant that the school district had to reduce its budget by $2.5 million.

      In 1994 – 1.1 votes per precinct in Alaska elected Tony Knowles as Governor and Fran Ulmer as Lieutenant Governor out of 216,668 votes cast in the General Election.

      In 1994 – Republican Randall Luthi and Independent Larry Call tied for a seat in the Wyoming House of Representatives from the Jackson Hole area with 1,941 votes each. A recount produced the same result. Mr. Luthi was finally declared the winner when, in a drawing before the State Canvassing Board, a ping pong ball bearing his name was pulled from the cowboy hat of Democratic Governor Mike Sullivan.

      In 1997 – Dakota Democrat John McIntyre led Republican Hal Wick 4,195 to 4,191 for the second seat in Legislative District 12 on election night. A subsequent recount showed Wick the winner at 4,192 to 4,191. The State Supreme Court however, ruled that one ballot counted for Wick was invalid due to an over-vote. This left the race a tie. After hearing arguments from both sides, the State Legislature voted to seat Wick 46 to 20.

      In 2000 – The Presidential election was decided by an extremely narrow margin. George W. Bush won the state of Florida by just 537 votes, making him the next President of the United States. Close to 6 million voters went to the polls in Florida. It might not have been by one vote, but certainly every vote counted.

      In 2006 – Connecticut’s 2nd U.S. Congressional seat was won by Joe Courtney with 121,252 votes to Rob Simmons’ 121,158; a difference of only 94 votes.

      In 2008 – Stockton, California: The Stockton Unified School Trustee Area No. 3 seat was won by one vote. Jose Morales received 2,302 votes while Anthony Silva received 2,301.

      In 2008 – Minnesota voters cast 2.9 million votes in their US Senate race that may be decided by as few as 200 votes (1/1000th of one %)

      In 2010 – In Nevada, the Nye County Primary contest for County Commissioner District IV was a dead heat with both Butch Borasky and Carl Moore receiving 381 votes. In the Lincoln County Primary, the District Attorney race was decided by only 3 votes.

    • @Claudette J beautifully said, Caludette

  12. Don’t ASSUME anything based on polls.
    Make it a LANDSLIDE Victory for Democracy.

  13. I refuse to believe the polls after what happened last time. I won’t believe it until the dust settles and Joe is named President Elect. I will vote blue all the way!

  14. Republicans are having a hard time funneling russian money thru the NRA

    The GOP fake october surprise is coming. But it will not be a surprise, just more lies.

    • The surprise is going to be trump dressed up as a REAL president for Halloween.

    • It’s probably going to be a weak Covid vaccine. I will be interested in hearing what Dr Fauci has to say about getting two different Covid vaccines to maximize chances of avoiding the disease.

    • Electric Gigolo | October 12, 2020 at 9:04 PM | Reply

      I’ve a gut feeling the democrats have Trump’s full tax returns. Any day it’ll drop. Cue the fireworks.

    • @Electric Gigolo if you look, there are tidbits already out and scattered across the web. I hope they are holding onto something big.

    • I believe all of you guys. I think something huge is going to drop with the taxes. Basically, the courts are going to release them to Congress.
      Also, Trump is going to push a so-called vaccine.
      But even the CEO of Regeneron says the medical ‘cocktail’ Trump had is not a cure.
      If anyone has something to gain by pushing it as a cure, it would be him, but he isn’t even doing it.

  16. Trump had other Foreign governments interfering in our American Democracy

    Save America

  17. The GOP angered America and the polls are showing it. GO VOTE EARLY!

    • Trump: *GOD BLESS AMERICA*
      God: 🐴🐴🐴🐴✝️🐘

      Well, at least that’s how it’s looking to little ole me.

      It’s not going to be easy being Democrats, however.

  18. How many people see Donald Trump as a bigoted racist Clan member. Then how many people see him at that and then say what I’m voting for him anyway. then you look at how many people say regardless I am not going to vote for him.

  19. L. Allex Benson | October 12, 2020 at 7:32 PM | Reply

    But don’t get complacent people. GET OUT AND VOTE.

  20. Trump was never praesidential at all. He’s a criminal.
