General Political Topics: 2020 Edition


Recommended Posts

I don't really post here but I came across something that blew my mind. I know the dynamics behind why this happened (and why it couldn't happen today), but it's still no less crazy. Back in 1920 despite a Republican landslide South Carolina voted for the Democratic nominee by a massive margin

Quote

Cox won South Carolina by a landslide margin of 92.14%.

In the midst of a massive nationwide Republican landslide, South Carolina was a staggering 118.3% more Democratic than the national average.

 

Almost impossible to imagine a state these days diverging from the country this dramatically

It would. Unfortunately, the woke mob is going after Zuckerberg because Facebook isn't behaving more like Twitter on censorship of free speech. Right for the wrong reason and all that...

Tell everyone you know to vote for him. He's the most moderate candidate running on the Democratic side.    Let's be real a Democrat is winning the race for mayor, let's at least make sure t

Other polls have him in the 40s.

 

Democrats have been after him since day 1. Kudos to him for standing up to them. He took alot of crap for 4 years.

 

Other people would have resigned right away. 

 

I wonder how the media will treat Biden. I know it will not be the same as how they treated Trump.

From the other party is fine.  But the mainstream media should not become a partisan actor.

The media is a big  cause of this.

I agree the media leans left and has become problematic the last few years for sure, however it does not excuse Trump's behavior over the last four years...making fun of John McCain after his death? (fitting that he lost Arizona in the election)   Picking twitter fights with people, welcoming racist organizations (proud boys etc) the riot etc etc you can't blame the media for that.
