  1. Biden Harris 2020

  2. Democrats have ignored the South for generations, which has allowed right wing dogma to calcify.

    • @Floating Turd They are the party of trumpism now. you can hardly call them republicans

    • @John Allison ‘discarded trash’.. ‘basket of deplorables’ same difference

    • @Kate so that makes you the party of nazis…gotcha

      Who’s hating America like the confederates today? Oh yeah the Democrats, who dislike patriotic Americans the same way the confederates did.

    • @Johnathan Flores are those the same “patriots” that support the confederate flag? That flag is the antithesis of patriotism. You are confused, nobody hates you. The right wing wants their voters feeling aggrieved by change.

  3. Joy Reid is 100% correct!

  4. I’ve been thinking for years that the Democratic party needs new management.

    Hold that hypocritical liars words against him. Play Lincoln Project adds on Lindsay Graham. My prayers and $12.00 are with you. YEAHY Jamie and plexiglass 💙⚖

  6. Reid is right in that you can’t get votes you don’t ask for.

    Absolutely, absolutely agree. Especially if they standardize election rules and end the GOP’s favorite voter suppression tactics (IMO, it should be as easy to vote in Mississippi as it is in Colorado – and it’s very easy, and secure, to vote in Colorado), much of the South is put in play.

  8. The South is awesome! I understand many are returning home. The South will be very important as well as the awaking of the Latino vote. Wow! This is exciting! This is going to be good. 🤗

    • YEP! Democrats, for TOO long now, just EXPECT the Black America & even the Latino vote! Americans, including blacks & Latinos, do not support the Democrat radical agenda! No matter how many lame stream media voices you have telling people one thing, those people start to see the truth, that the Democrats have taken the black vote for granted for decades, ignoring the issues that face many black voters. The only good thing about the Covid lock downs is the exposure of how biased left the lame stream media is to support the democrats! All my family & firends will vote Trump & Republicans down ballot! What did old racist Joe Biden say, “Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things,”?

      @Pam Deshane Exactly. This is also one of the reasons why Malcolm X spoke against the Democrats due to the fact they exploited Black votes and ignored their problems after they received power.

  9. Should invest MUCH more at least Progressives are willing.

  10. I enjoyed listening to these ladies talking about these topics. Keep the great work.

  11. Joy is right, Southern Red states definately need more attention and support.

    Mike Espy is a good guy, it’s a shame that Mississippi doesn’t value his leadership. Bless up!

    • @Night Hawks HAHAHHAHAHHAHA! ANGRY LIB! I like to call you guys the ‘Mad Libs’! Graham is 6% ahead in SC, nobody likes Jaime Harrison! You better get those tissues ready because tomorrow you are going to see a MASSIVE RED WAVE!!! 😃

    • Yes. Don’t know him but…go all out all over the place.

    • I donated!

    • Nicholas Strong | November 2, 2020 at 7:08 PM | Reply

      @William Weck I like him because he genuinely cares about the poor and working class folks of Mississippi and wants to bring a lot of job opportunities and better pay. If more jobs and better pay makes me liberal then okay, I’ll take that.

    • @William Weck You sound like a worried little biotch.

    Let’s hope Jamie gets elected! Graham has got to go!

    • Graham is a HYPOCRITE! Drumpf must have “something” on poor Lyndsey that he’s got him in the wazoo now.

    • More than ANYONE, Lindsey Graham has to go.
      He’s a *_self aware_* hypocritical sociopath. He’s given in to utter ethical nihilism….and I’m DONE with him.
      I hope those voting feel the same.
      Send him packing. He deserves to lose.

  14. “Donald Trump’s re-election campaign poses the greatest threat to American democracy since World War II.” — The New York Times editorial board


  16. Agreed, 100%. I live in Mississippi and Espy has my vote. We’ll keep plugging away and make incremental moves, if that’s all the conservative south will allow for now, but small steps, continuously performed, give big results.

  17. I’m voting for Doug! Don’t count us out yet y’all ☮️❤️😷✊🏼

  18. Joy is right, Southern Red states definately need more attention and support.

    Joy is totally correct, “The south is in play”.

    • the dems and all the money in the world won’t fix the mind set of the south that keeps them ‘the south’. There is a lot of very big money, dark money and people is power who like the south the way it is

    Joy, can you please remind everyone what the Democrats have done for the Black Community over the past 100 years?
