But the Biden will win the popular vote by 5 million votes.

i just watched, in a tweet, a woman demand service without a mask and talk about her rights. "You do not have the right to measure my temperature, you are not a doctor." People do not seem to understand that for instance Twitter is a business and can delete whatever they want to delete. People also do not understand the school opening is a state level matter. Trump could, with congress, cut off funding to colleges, which do get a lot of federal funding.

Hamilton proponent of EC:
It was also peculiarly desirable to afford as little opportunity as possible to tumult and disorder," the real Hamilton wrote, referring to the "mischief" that might done among the general electorate.

Those phrases appeared in an essay Hamilton wrote nearly a year later, part of a series urging ratification of the Constitution. It was No. 68 in the collection published as The Federalist.

"The sense of the people" should be part of the process, Hamilton wrote. But it would be taken as an "advisement" by the Electoral College, composed of "men most capable of analyzing the qualities" needed for the supreme office, educated and discerning gentlemen who would meet "under circumstances favorable to deliberation."

Hidden Trump voters:
Slotkins said when she hired a pollster in 2018, she used a tactic she learned while working at the Pentagon to probe them on why they didn't accurately predict the results of the 2016 election.

"He told me that they fundamentally undercounted the Trump vote; that the Trump voter is not a voter in every single election, that they come out for Trump, so they're hard to count," Slotkin said of Al Quinlan of GQR, a large Washington-based polling firm.

Trump voters still hiding from pollsters. Are there 5% of them?

Biden gives Trump more ammo for "socialism" label:
NYT
He added: “Something’s happening here, it really is. The American people are going, ‘Whoa, come on, we’ve got to do something.’” As evidence, he cited the number of white Americans participating in Black Lives Matter protests.

Biden has called for police reforms, sharp cuts in carbon emissions, a major infrastructure program, universal preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds, a big expansion of Medicare and substantially higher taxes on the rich. Bernie Sanders says the agenda would make Biden “the most progressive president since F.D.R.”

And most polls show that a majority of Americans support each of those policies.

None of this means Biden will necessarily succeed. He still needs to win, help Democrats retake the Senate, avoid intraparty fights between the left and center — and then deliver policies that actually affect Americans’ lives.

But the potential for sweeping change is real, even if Biden isn’t most liberals’ idea of a visionary.

And the filibuster? Asked whether he supports getting rid of the filibuster, so the Senate could pass bills with a straight majority, Biden said: “It’s going to depend on how obstreperous they become,” referring to Republicans.

He noted that he has historically supported the filibuster and was optimistic he could find common ground with Republicans. “But I think you’re going to just have to take a look at it,” he added.

You're not alone in thinking that. :{D
Twitter lit up following Coulter’s Tweets, with many followers expressing shock at the conservative commentator’s uncharacteristic endorsement. Some comments questioned if her account had been hacked, while others bewilderingly welcomed her opposition to the Republican leader that has drawn the ire of Democrats for years. Many who have demonized Coulter for her various conservative and far-right positions, were at great pains to agree with her.

In many ways, however, Coulter’s stunning Tweets aren’t all that surprising given the deepening divide in the GOP as conservative leaders and commentators begin to wonder what a post-Trump Republican party would look like. With President Trump trailing former vice-president Joe Biden in most polls, many GOP insiders are openly speculating whether the President has a meaningful chance to win reelection. As a result, the race for the future of the Republican party is already be getting a head start in advance of the November election.

While many, such as the Lincoln Project, are looking for the party to return to the more mainstream conservative policies and principles of the GOP before Trump won the mantle of the party in 2016, others like Coulter, appear to be doubling-down on the more right-wing populist policies and perspectives that they feel have been abandoned by much of the current Republican leadership. In that sense, they see legislators like McConnell as not being sufficiently conservative, or right-wing, enough. Hence the reference to them as RINOs. In the past, Coulter has been extremely critical of President Trump and Senator McConnell as RINOs for failing to deliver even more aggressive border control policies than those they have already pursued. These failures have likely further fueled her animosity for the Kentucky senator.

Georgia Democrat does a better job selling Trump than Trump does. It's all attack, not a blame game:

Just make the Democratic party illegal. Arrest all the leaders under the Patriot Act and send them to Guantanamo. Blame BLM and Mexicans.

It could work.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.
