    this proves how screwed up America is, there should be no contest. Biden should win with a landslide. omg people… stay in school!

  2. I feel like Hillary’s October surprise just days before Election Day had more to do with her losing than how she was doing a month out. Considering that Trump can’t seem to go more than a week without creating some new disaster, I think the the October surprises this time will weigh much more heavily on Trump than on Biden.

      @peter conway — very true, and Comey has admitted he f—d up with only ten days to go, Biden isn’t making the same mistakes and he doesn’t have the huge negatives

    • @peter conway There was a better turnout of voters in 2018 and a blue wave resulted. If the mail in ballots , and early voting is a guide – there will be a big turnout this year compared to 2016 – and that will likely harm Trump.

    • @Mdlclass Worker Hopefully the Biden gaffs will stay to a minimum and Drumpf will react to the later stages of covid miserably against what those idiotic actors in white lab coats at Walter Reed stated!!

    • @gavin parks Right you are and the actual count in early voting is setting records even against the tactics of suppression,intimidation the right has injected into the election.Now if mail in and absentee are growing like the early voting is it may be an indicator a Biden landslide well before Drumpf can use any of his illegal tactics and he may be forced to concede to save face knowing it could get historicly worse.

    • @peter conway i really hope youre right but im seriously concerned. Ive already voted ib ohio. Blue all the way down.

  3. The enemy of democracy is complacency.

    “I’ve got better things to do on November 3, and everybody else is already carrying the vote anyway, so I’m good.” Total mistake.

  4. If Trump gets re-elected he’ll have a Revenge list of about 300 million Americans remember that

    • Call your democratic office and see what you can do to help.

    • @Julie Taylor Mexico is gonna be flooding with refugees from America 😂😂😂

    • He may actually call for civil war if he loses. His cult followers don’t listen to anything but him and only what they think he means not what he says always. I have family members who are the same with oil and coal as well as other groups…they will say it was rigged and prob lash out. Notice that no one called a trump supporting group who planned to blow up a bridge and kidnap a governor a terrorist. I’m sure they will be warned and let go as they “ exercised their constitutional rights to form a militia and freedom of speech” and didn’t actually do anything…I fear for the coming days and hope cascadia comes to be if the us falls through

    • Hes already dividing your country into democrat city’s and republican ones so I could see it happening

    • Don’t stress he’s being flushed on Nov 3

    I’m so glad someone in the media is highlighting the fact that Biden’s not quite there yet. If people don’t vote we all lose.

    Something gives me this strange feelings;
    Trump ain’t gonna make it.
    He is about to hit the bucket.

      That would be the devil line to you the father of lies who most Democrats listen to.

      99% plus SURVIVAL rate. Only those who have lost their God-given minds live in fear of that. Today could be your last day on Earth you better turn to Jesus Christ or it won’t go well for you at the judgment seat of Christ.

    • Hit or kick?

      Your mother would be proud you’re wishing for someone’s death?

  7. If Trump wins again, the rest of the world is going to build a huge wall around your country and we’ll… see you again after 4 years

    That was sounding math straight but i didn’t hear the factor that makes a joe Hillary parallel insignificant as a negative , you forgot to add in the pandemic was not effecting numbers in her election run

    It has to be an overwhelming wave or they’ll tie it up in the courts and steal it. Everyone must vote. America depends on you.

    • This is my current theory. Not sure how it’ll work but I just have a feeling. Somehow, the Republicans will find a way to contest the mail-in ballots and get the SCOTUS (which’s already extremely biased in favour of the right) to invalidate them, seeing as mail-in voters are statistically leaning Democratic this will hurt them far more than Republicans.

  10. “[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:

    Everything ive seen indicates Biden is further ahead than Hillary was at this point. Especially in the battleground states that Trump won.

  12. His “Disco is burning”, let that mother burn.
    – Tramps
    I did love disco, but not Trump type of music…its his “last dance”.
    – Donna Summer
    So, Trump will “freak out”
    – Chic
    Trump “Hit the road Jack, and don’t you come back no more, no more”.
    – Ray Charles.

    Ted Cruz has never been honest in his life and he didn’t start now. It was fear-mongering to his over-active amygdala scaredy-cat republican base who sees everything as a threat.

    Those people have amped-up fear responses to everything including their own shadow.

    (There are fMRI studies proving this. Fox viewers would do well to look them up before further embarrassing themselves with ignorant comments on the subject.) 😉

  14. But last time we didn’t have a belly full of Trump lies.

  15. Trump is far from crushing anything. More less votes. The only thing he is doing is spreading that virus.

  16. the problem is turn out, polls only means something when people who polled actually go out and vote. VOTE people!

  17. Last time, there was an October surprise. This time, people know that if there is an October surprise, it is just propoganda!!!!!

    • Your last statement makes a great slogan make some signs and post them outside

    • @Dennis Schott Thanks! It comes from Glenn Kirschner, former federal prosecutor for DC. Feel free to use it!

    • And Biden doesn’t have negative favorability numbers and isn’t anywhere near as distrusted as Clinton was. Plus, there was a huge number of “undecideds” in 2016. Now, the undecideds are not enough to make a difference in most election scenarios. Lastly, Dems are FAR more motivated to vote than in 2016. Clinton likely lost, not just because of a huge rural/suburban turnout for Trump, but because so many Dems didn’t vote. Ari is, as usual, fear-mongering for ratings. That’s why I don’t usually watch him – he always takes an alarmist tack. That’s not to say that this election is in the bag, but what he was saying is ignoring all of the positives that favor Biden.

      Yeah, if they don’t put them in a dumpster…

  18. The pollsters are actually polling more “uneducated” voters now compared to 2016, this is definitely not 2016!!

  19. Ted Cruz needs to focus on how he can help his constituents and STOP acting like that guy in the White House.

  20. Ted Cruz is second only to Trump in how pathetic he is.

    • NeverRubARhubarb | October 9, 2020 at 11:00 PM | Reply

      A worm of a human being without a single redeeming feature.

    • @NeverRubARhubarb I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more geniunely pathetic human being than Ted Cruz. I might have to move him to number 1.

    • In my list of most despicable politicians, Cruz comes in third after Trump and McConnell.

    • @Juan Asenjo Oh Trump is up there as most despicable, but I still think Cruz is most pathetic. Maybe. It’s a toss up, I’m telling ya
