EXCLUSIVE: Retired schoolteacher, 60, comes decked out in buttons, blue hair and a Biden-Harris sign to serve as one woman cheering squad for Joe as he arrives in Kenosha - two days after Trump drew a crowd of hundreds

I think Biden’s dismal turnouts have more to do with a lack of enthusiasm for him. No one who votes for him will be voting for Biden. They will be voting against Trump, and those kinds of voters will be more likely to stay home. Trump supporters, on the other hand, will crawl across broken glass to vote for him.

So Biden was at a town hall meeting in support of Jacob Blake, who was shot by police after resisting arrest when they tried to take him in for felony sexual assault.

The audience at this event was stocked — like a lake with trout — with citizens who were told exactly what Joe wanted their concerns to be.

What could go wrong?

Yep...since you and your party are pathological liars...and the msm covers for you..

Joe Biden makes bizarre false claim that a black man invented the light bulb, 'not a white guy named Edison'
  • Joe Biden said a black man invented the light bulb, 'not a white guy named [Thomas] Edison' on Thursday
  • Biden gave a speech to community leaders in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after meeting privately with the family of Jacob Blake
  • Biden may be referring to Lewis Howard Latimer, a black man who worked with light bulb inventor Thomas Edison and improved his carbon filaments
  • During the speech, Biden also quipped the audience 'will shoot me' if he continued talking about his tax policies
  • Jacob Blake, 29, was shot seven times in the back on August 23 by law enforcement

So was Hillary, and Biden’s numbers have dropped and will continue to drop. He had a huge lead a month ago. Now they are in a statistical dead heat.
Didn’t biden and Hillary have the same numbers at the same point in their campaigns too?

Thank you.
Very interesting. I have only just started watching the polls for this thing.
Trump seems slightly ahead with the bookies, but a lot can change in a couple of months.

I don’t think the polls can be trusted.

Trump is doing a good job with the economy, which is probably the biggest factor, and he’s picked up a lot of support from blacks and latinos. He’s got a solid record of accomplishments he can run on now, and as soon as he goes head to head with Biden at a debate, it’s game over for the Democrats.

Yesterday I happened to have a conversation with a lesbian and a young black woman (as one does), both from California, and while they don’t like Trump, they both said that the Democrats have completely lost their support, and they don’t trust the mainstream media any longer, either. This is not good news for the Democrats, and it’s only going to get worse for them.

This is why that false story of Trump calling dead veterans “losers” came out yesterday. Look for more anonymously sourced false stories in the weeks remaining before the election, as the Democrats and the media desperately throw what’s left of their dignity and credibility on the fire in the hopes that something will damage Trump.

My sense is that the Democrats are just making their entire party as unpopular as Hillary was in 2016, and they can expect to lose again because of it.

I don't trust polls either, but you rarely find a poor bookie.

I totally lost track of all the news a couple of months ago. Trying to do a quick catch up before I go off again.
I need to find out who this biden chatacter is.

From what you say it seems a bit like our last election. Corbyn was too left for the ordinary leftists. Many were so alienated they voted Tory.
I just abstained. I wanted to spoil my ballot paper by writing something witty and meaningful on it. but it was raining so I didn't bother.
So Boris won it.

If Biden wins do you think it will be all change? green new deal, universal income etc? Or just more of the same with a red veneer?
