    Johnson is the reason Dems always lose,always pandering to centrist right wing

    Please let’s not get something wrong. The Democrats do not need to start hand-wringing, blaming, feeling guilty and ashamed or profusely apologizing. If Biden maintains both his Electoral College as well as popular vote leads he wins the 2020 Presidential election. But remember, this is not just any election. This wasn’t a battle; this was war. There have been many, many casualties, albeit nontraditional ones, from murders (Kenosha/Portland/Tacoma) to how many needless COVID-19 deaths, disabilities and infections? Former VP Biden will have defeated arguably the greatest single risk our democracy may have ever faced, certainly in generations.
    If Biden wins he will have legally defeated an incumbent President who was using all legal and extra legal powers at his disposal in his attempt to defeat his challenger no matter the costs – yet fails. Biden and this country, no matter how narrowly, will have conquered a man and his far too many coconspirator sycophants who have used every trick in libraries of books. To name just a few, this administration has tried to divert, depress, divide and conquer using: overt racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, Anti-Semitism, anti science, facts and reality, gaslighting, psychological manipulation, pervasive social media propaganda and misinformation campaigns with tens of thousands of lies, virtually unlimited campaign financing, law enforcement and white supremacist militias, USPS delivery slowdowns (USPS failed to deliver 27 percent of mail-in ballots in South Florida), hundreds of court challenges to election processes and voting rights as well as the overt solicitation of and assistance from foreign governments all while undermining the very legitimacy of democratic institutions: voters, voting and elections, finance campaign laws, peaceful transfers of power even political and social norms… What about the President’s blatant disregard for our Constitution? Democrats up and down the ballot have done extraordinarily well in the face of such a ruthless, endless onslaught.
    If on January 20, 2021 Biden becomes the President, he and every single voter who was lucky enough to cast a ballot and have that vote counted (for any candidate) will have won by a larger margin than we can possibly fathom. Historians, teacher and students hopefully will ponder these events for a very long time. We will have saved our democracy; saved vital, treasured although worn intuitions. Still, we must remain vigilant; we have our work cut out for us. Perhaps someday soon we will come together and celebrate, and even grieve, surviving. Regardless – It’s victory.

    • Thank you for your post. Excellently said 👏🏽

    • Your post is perfection. Thank you for pointing out the 27 percent of florida mail in ballots that were trashed by dejoy goons. I hope some honest postal worker filmed it. FBI do your job.

    • Having said all of that , think about how poorly the democrats strategy and messaging must be to barely win despite a president who has caused the deaths of over 240,000 people, with 70 million people out of work due to his mishandling of the virus. Plus he has been impeached, and faces numerous charges by the authorities ; and you barely win! Plus you lose seats in the house and only picked up a couple in the Senate. I mean if you can’t DESTROY an incumbent president with such a horrible record then something is terribly wrong with your messaging. So they need to clean that up!

  3. Fear and prejudice..Status quo..privileged dont want to give up power.
    Power corrupts absolutely.

  4. What about all the money that Trump owes?

    I am so surprised that given the complete and utter disregard for fellow americans trump would get votes..540 children ripped from mothers arms never to find tgeir parents again? How can Latinos vote for this narcissist who really doesnt give a shh for people ..wow..glad i dont live there

    • @Ann Holley again most ppl like 90% only vote one issue not all or most just one issue. That one issue is what they care bout the most. Who giving ME what I CARE BOUT. That is never bout you or me NEVER. Trump has given something like the courts he has overwhelmingly given republicans that it might be that. It might be he’s not those Dems. What ever it is not bout the bad, jackup, criminal things, it’s not bout he a disgusting person , it’s not bout he’s ignorant. Etc. Or he cheated on his wife, golfs all the time. Even how bad a job he’s did it’s bout that one issue he gives them.

    • Cubans don’t care about the children, it isn’t affecting their culture. All they care about is their “Cuba Libre” nonsense. If they were fooled by a dictator once, Castro, and now being fooled again by another wanna be dictator Trump, how the EFF are they gonna free their island? You can’t fix STUPID.

    • @Joe Black Geez, learn how to write cohesive sentences! You effen sound like Trump dude.

    • @Ann Holley Don’t group us all together…those voting for Trump were Cubans, Valenzuelens and Colombians!!!

    • @NJG0516 trolling is the end thing

  6. Jeremiah Bachmann | November 4, 2020 at 11:09 AM | Reply

    Mexicans and Puerto Ricans are closer to the average white/black American. The Cubans and the ones from northern South America are too filled with fear (socialism) to open their eyes.

  7. OMG, another 4 years of nightmare. this is what they want. Congratulation to those who vote the big freaking liar clown after all this high unemployment, a mishandled pandemic, and mass death ! After this 4 years, he will burn your constitution law & act down and become dictatorship and authoritarian country.

      Trump has proven to be the greatest and most successful president in American history obviously… Democrats support BLM lgbtq and defunding the police obviously

      Like Einstein did, the smart ones will bail out of this ship if it starts sinking into Nazism in a huge public way like Germany did. Where is Barr? Why is he not using the FBI to arrest the attackers of the Biden bus?

      His predecessor, J. Edgar, arrested us fifty years ago for drinking out of the white fountains and sitting at whites-only lunch counters. The “Good People” that Trump is always praising and lauding even killed two Jews and a Black youth for trying to get out the black vote in Mississippi.

    • @William H Music 2020 Troll take your Trump dictator and move to an island where he can reign over you until you die!! No one is gonna miss you, the rest of you Kuckoo Trump supporters or Trump. Buh-Bye!!!

  8. The biggest lesson of 2020: NEVER TRUST POLLS. Also, stop pitting all African Americans and Latinos into one bucket each. The demographics are so diverse and complex, most politicians have no idea. That is Biden’s mistake, and Trump used the fear of Communism to his advantage with Cuban/Venezuelan voters.

    • Maybe with trump soon gone they would realize they were conned by him. Biden is no socialist. Hopefully they will educate themselves.

  9. George Zimmerman was Hispanic. They are definitely not a monolith. A lot of them are catholic and subscribe to the entrepreneurial aspect of the American dream. Dems need to do better with their economic messaging and stop allowing the GOP to mislabel them.

    • Good point.

    • Steve Zelaznik | November 4, 2020 at 11:40 AM | Reply

      I know this is a YouTube comment section, but do you have examples of current messaging and what you think a better message would be?

    • @Steve Zelaznik they just need to connect the dots on how the public option will help small businesses be more competitive and increase profits. Medical benefits packages are extremely expensive and most small businesses struggle to retain and attract good employees as a result. Green New Deal isn’t socialism, it’s an economic growth engine that will push us into the next century. Raising taxes will not tank the economy because they were paying these same taxes before and the economy was booming. The myths need to be dispelled!! The GOP just plays offense by putting Dems on defense when they say Democrats wanna raise your taxes and people just tune out after that.

    • @Steve Zelaznik also, corporations are not helping to pay for the security that helps protect their profits. They want the middle class to pay for them.

    • GOP take advantage of idiots with their lies & brainwashing them with the likes of Rush Limbaugh.

    It’s racial. I’m an Afro Cuban Puerto Rican. There is a racist strain within our community that is colonial and toxic.. Cubans in Florida are mainly WT. They left the island because they hated the black and brown people and they feared intergration more than Communism. There is a lot of racism within the Latino community that stems from a colonial caste system. A lot of this support for Trump is about wt Latinos and those brown Latinos who aspire to wt-ness. They are siding against other black and brown Latinos who they need to feel they are superior to. Venezuelans in Miami who left their countries are the wealthy, whiter Venezuelans who resent the black and brown people in their countries. I am a Latina who had lived in multiple Latin countries and this too is about race.

    🏋🏻‍♂️🇲🇽🇺🇸💪🏼Mexican Americans for Biden!💙🌊🌊🌊🏄🏻‍♂️

  12. Latinos and blacks will put Biden In the White House. It’s we the people that can make a difference. God Bless you All

  13. A Federal Judge ordered the Post Office to deliver all ballots by 3pm election day.
    DeJoy defied that Court order.
    Why isn’t DeJoy arrested today?
    If you or I defied a Court order from a Federal Judge, we would be sitting in prison this morning.

    Why isn’t anyone talking about the millions of ballots that the Post Office failed or refused to deliver?

    • Louis DeJoy should be held accountable!

    • The order said he had to do the sweep, or be ready to present reasons for not doing so. I’m guessing there’ll be a hearing, and if DeJoy’s lawyers don’t convince the judge, there may well be a contempt finding. (& a presidential pardon.)

    • Its donnies mafia. He is untouchable. A criminal with lots of enablers

    • Tahmid alpha12 | November 4, 2020 at 1:12 PM | Reply

      @Stacy Wacy so now what will happen to those uncounted votes?? Please tell, will they be counted cause they should!

    • Tahmid alpha12 not to be counted, as far as I know. Dems NEED to FIGHT!!
      Republicans invent things and crimes they fight tooth and nail over. Dems even don’t fight, if it’s about crucial and totally legitimate things.

  14. I don’t understand with all this person and his administration has done to our constitution our laws defying our norms for the past century and people are voting because of their 401k’s
    He’s in there another 4 yrs Americans will be broke and he will be sitting in our house taking all he can
    This is a very discouraged day to see what America is really like

  15. Trump’s attack on Biden’s dead family was despicable. 😡

    • Kepler Mission | November 4, 2020 at 1:19 PM | Reply

      Well, Biden is getting long the tooth (old), otherwise, they’d still be around to make outraged sounds.

    • @Kepler Mission – Trump isn’t exactly a spring chicken honey😏. His weight & general state of unfitness, makes him look & act way older then fit & trim & sharp Joe Biden.

    • Kepler Mission | November 4, 2020 at 1:56 PM | Reply

      @Dancingonair Well, if you enjoy the Irish American style, vote for Biden. Trump is better for many.

  16. Gonna wish Socialism was “A Thing” after this Nut in Our WH!

  17. This election was an IQ test for America. If Toxic Trump loses, we get a passing grade…but just barely, because is shouldn’t have even been close, and his Republican enablers were not roundly repudiated.

      @wily wascal hey Bud. You just had four years of trump. You had Impeachment, you had race riots, you had 200,000 deaths.You didn’t take Florida, Texas, or Ohio. You lost the youth Latino and black vote completely. You will limp over the line. And you are having a go at me not understanding. And therein lies the very arrogance that means the DNC is a zombie party. Don’t shoot the messenger.

    • Exactly

    • @laura venables ~ Hey, Doc, stating the lie that Democrats “lost the youth Latino and Black vote completely” and stereotyping and categorizing the mostly peaceful BLM protests as “race riots” only demonstrates your critical lack of understanding of the situation here in America. Maybe you can impress upon the Republican cult the tragedy of 233,000+ senseless American COVID-19 deaths, because you’re not telling Democrats anything they didn’t already know, or haven’t already been trying to do.

      You want to task one side with somehow miraculously fixing all the problems on the other side, who CHOOSE to be willfully ignorant. You got a solution, let’s hear it–we’re all ears. But, of course, you don’t. All you got is lies, hubris, a phony superiority act that fools no one, petty insults, and pointing fingers. You’re more part of the problem than any kind of solution. We understand perfectly.

      @laura venables you’re right – I was being sarcastic. If Biden loses maybe it will force more support for actual progressives

    • laura venables | November 5, 2020 at 7:41 AM | Reply

      @What is BRITISH HUMOR?? then I am in complete agreement! 🤪

  18. How do you vote for someone that separates and locks up your children and parents??????

  19. They were never a monolith and never voted as a block period.
