  1. Still have time to vote. Don’t trust the polls. People lie on polls. VOTE BLUE.

    • Yes, still time to vote, but to late to vote by mail. At this point, go in person to vote early or drop off your ballot at a drop-box location, if your state allows these options.

      @Sun dial Many Americans get “Socialism” wrong. Social responsibility as e.g. Obama Care Act demonstrates has nothing to do with eastern Europe practiced Socialism or Communism in DDR, Russia etc.

      People lie on both sides. That’s the margin of error.

  2. I’ll be voting for Doug Jones on the 3rd.

  3. Donald’s never had a plan, if he had, he wouldn’t have gone bankrupt six times; he’s not a successful businessman, he’s a successful promo man.

    • Donald Mcflimflam man.

    • No his plan is to ignore Covid. He will replace ObamaCare with Don’tCare.

    • Fred Trump was the business man. Not donold. dotard donnie inherited. That’s it. Still bankrupted a casino.

    • I will go as far as saying that Trump’s garbage casinos are a good reason why Atlantic City, which did for a while look like it would turn into Vegas East, became a S-hole and a perfect metaphor for Everything Trump Touches Dies.

    • @Karen Byrd it will go down in Atlantic City, awful history. The man who competed with himself, got bailed out by his daddy, and then undid all of the regulation that would have kept AC from ending up under water in 20 years…

  4. I’m afraid Alabamians don’t know how good they got it with Jones. A poor education system will do that.

    • I live in AL and I voted for him and plan on doing it again. Some of us know. We’re just outnumbered.

    • @Schmancy That’s great! I knock Alabama every now & again, but I have a lot of respect for those like yourself fighting the good fight. I can’t imagine how hard it would be being so outnumbered. Thanks

    • @Schmancy I have family in Birmingham. There are terrific people in AL. I say that even though being an old head I remember George Wallace.

  5. Geez..the Reps have made it SO clear that they intend to cheat Americans out of their democracy, through ALL their efforts to deny the people their democratic right to vote: limiting drop boxes, creating chaos w/mail and challenging mail-in voting, making people stand in line to vote for HOURS, questioning valid ballots, etc… Alabama- be smart and keep Doug in office. Voting in a local sports celebrity Trump crony is NOT in your best interest! One need only look at the current chaotic situation this nation is in to know that Republicans DO NOT have the country’s best interest at heart!

  6. All this media is in my brain, lately realities they don’t seem the same. It’s not very funny to see America dividin’,
    ‘scuse me while I vote for Biden. All this spin gets spun around. I don’t know if this polling is up or down.
    Is this the happiness the constitution guarantees, or are Republicans making it harder to breathe?

  7. Vote and tell others to vote Biden 2020

    Biden/Harris 2020

  9. Rosalia Gerodias Harris | October 30, 2020 at 12:52 AM | Reply

    Blue Blue for Biden President 2020.🙏🙏🙏

    ⊹⊱⋛⋋💙 I V0TED F0R BIDEN AND HARRIS! 💙⋌⋚⊰⊹

  11. I voted blue.
    So can you!
    Biden/Harris/Jones 2020

  12. Doug is too smart for Alabama. Don’t hold your breath.

  13. Don’t Believe the Polls, Vote with Your Soul, Make Trump feel Sorrow!

    • Don’t get complacent. Every single vote for Biden/Harris is a clear message to Trump and the world
      that Americans reject Trump’s message of: divisiveness, hatred, greed,
      selfishness, incompetence, etc, etc, etc. Vote Blue!

  14. Ignore the polls! Let us get out and VOTE in GREAT NUMBERS for BIDEN/HARRIS!

  15. The only plan Donald has ever had is to cause chaos!!!

  16. He gets it! It’s healthcare everywhere. We need national insurance single payer.

  17. Let’s VOTE for Doug Jones…An Alabama Senator with a BACKBONE. Just what it take to keep ALABAMA STRONG..

  18. Young people and blacks must vote in large numbers for Jones to win!

    He seems like a good man. I don’t get how anyone could choose any Republican over this guy.

  20. I don’t get why people are even debating what party to vote for. One party is responsible for the death of 225000 americans, the other isn’t republican. I can’t see anything else matters.
