It’s gotta cause some introspection when one sees so plainly that their base is “non-college whites.’

there are obviously very conventional explanations for trump's poor numbers - recessions and state failures are not usually good for incumbents.  but i think this is also relevant.  no one is shocked, titillated or intrigued by trump anymore.  we've tired of him.

This might have been effective were statue supporters a major voting bloc. But with more than 120,000 Americans dead from a pandemic, current COVID-19 rates exploding, and 40 million people having lost their jobs, it’s a little hard to imagine that the elevation of the problems of dead Confederates over those of living Americans is going to excite a great many voters. At a time when the country is experiencing not just the pandemic and the resulting economic collapse but also a genuine outpouring of anger about racial inequities, the president is not merely swimming against the tide of public opinion; he is doing so on a matter that seems like a non sequitur. And it’s hard to revive interest in yourself by spouting non sequiturs

I always wonder why people here like dax, KSUW, etc. don't see that and think, "wait a sec. Maybe I'm doing something wrong here."

Spoken like a true elitist to suggest a man is somehow worth less if he chooses not to pursue a worthless piece of paper. Plenty of money to be made in the trades or in the oil patch.

Equally elitist to measure a man's worth by the amount of money they make  :th_twocents:
Hyperbolic partisan duplicitous hypocrite

Meanwhile Joe Biden, doing everything he can to wipe his 40 year record in Washington clean (for the election) is attempting to put a new Marxist face on his campaign by entertaining Bernie Bro ideas and platforms, along with the ideas of the Maoist-Leninist arm of the party. Even those that accuse him of being a rapist and want to dismantle our economy while funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to their latest husband in a very unethical manner.

Unfortunately, as we're starting to peel back on who will likely actually be in charge in the West Wing.   The Marxist-Leninist-Maoist arm of the DNC may not be very happy.  It's a list that reads like a whose-who of current "consultants" (The new name for lobbyists) plugged into a veritable potpourri of mega-banks, mega-corps, tech oligarchs, defense contractors and venture capitalists.   

Who will win out?

While I agree the whole statues thing is dumb and the easily propagandized dimwits that make up the majority of both parties will either be completely enraged until they're told about the next thing to be enraged about.  Or they'll think it's great.

But that can't touch the real world hilarity of Joe attempting to crap all over the political animal he's always been in order to appease ProgNazi's now entrenched in the DNC.

It's even more hilarious now that we're starting to see who is emerging as the likely policy wonks that will actually run Joe's administration.   Again, as of now it reads like a whose-who if beltway types inextricably joined at the hip of a cross section of big business and big finance.    Everything that at least the ProgNazi wing of the DNC, supposedly hates.

When that doesn't work, they will start flying the confederate flag at their rallies.
