    Is it too early to start a “President-elect Joe Biden”

    How will you be celebrating, thread yet?

    Yes it is. I do not put anything past the GOP and the orange moron when it comes to cheating.

    i've been reading quite a bit in the last 48 hours about geriatric cubans in miami voting for trump in very high numbers. many say they like biden the man and his stated policy agenda, but they're convinced he's a trojan horse for socialism. which is, of course, ridiculous. but it's been a lie that the trump campaign has been pushing for weeks.

    and it just goes to illustrate how some of the trump propaganda makes it way down the line...people not wearing masks, believing trump "created the best economy ever", etc.... and we've even seen it here on TD with

    * chico is convinced that covid cases are only up in so-called blue states.
    * newbie dave posting a disingenuous video that was edited to make biden look mentally deficient.
    * rpeter65 is all in on the hunter biden laptop nonsense

    some people aren't willing to put even an ounce of effort into considering whether or not something might be true....they just swallow it whole (and worse, disseminating it) without pausing for the slightest moment to think about it critically.

    this is exactly what the trump campaign wants....in fact, it's counting on it.

    Which considering they are usually key beneficiaries of it leads me to repeat my question: How did Americans become so utterly fucking stupid?

    There is a remarkable lack of critical thinking ability.

    Sure that's case but here is where the rubber meets the road to Biden win in FLA. Dems must get the vote out or it's bye, bye FLA.

    "Democrats are sounding the alarm about weak voter turnout rates in Florida’s biggest county, Miami-Dade, where a strong Republican showing is endangering Joe Biden’s chances in the nation’s biggest swing state.

    No Democrat can win Florida without a huge turnout and big winning margins here to offset losses elsewhere in the state. But Democrats are turning out at lower rates than Republicans and at lower rates than at this point in 2016, when Hillary Clinton won by 29 percentage points here and still lost the state to Donald Trump."

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Weird but other parts of the article paint a different picture.

    There could be another reason. Hard-line policies and will not do business with Cuba until Cuba is free.

    I have a very close friend in Miami. He’s Cuban (born and raised) and is a Trump supporter.

    The girlfriend is close to his wife and who I’ve known since I was a kid. Two of theirs girls now live in New York, both have graduated and one is an (corporate) attorney. Their parents purchased them an apartment at Trump Tower years ago when they were in college.

    Because the two women (the girlfriend and his wife) are facebook friends every time she learns we are going to visit New York she’ll offer the apartment to us.

    She has a bit of an evil streak in her.
    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    Agree. The large early mail in vote alleviates some concern and the efforts to get folks to polls of local groups as well. However, still no letting up until the polls close.

    The first time she offered us the apartment we were all sitting in a restaurant for lunch. They both knew I was a Clinton supporter and we were discussing politics (little bit). When I told her that I appreciated the offer but we had booked another place she giggled (evil streak ) and told me I could watch the protests outside the building as we came and went.

    Another story to help some here understand some Cubans and their position/s.

    Another close Cuban friend (I could go on and on). I should say Cuban family. I have known them since I was a teenager. Their family (I’ll also relate a story about his wife) came to Miami shortly after Castro took the country.

    This family pretty much had a certain segment of the construction industry locked up. They had offices throughout Cuba. When Castro took power he also took control of their business. All the boys (the sons) would like the see the island free and would rather see a hardline approach to Cuba.

    About the wife mentioned above. The wife’s family was in the banking industry (still are but in Miami). Owned a bank and all the branches in Cuba. Castro took the island,……….and their bank/s. Nothing else will do but a hardline policy when dealing with Cuba.

    I am amazed that you can actually sit with them at all. I have de-friended almost all of my old trumpazee friends because they have become utter idiots.

    He is not that kind of person, even though he says he has material that would "sink" the Biden campaign , and even tough the material was found again, he does not want to cause any further hurt to the Biden family, and
    he didn’t want to be involved with “piling on” Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son

    Anybody can wonder about such statement seeing and learning what is the present status of "freedom of speech"?

    Same, for me its painful. If the right thing happens I will try to get in touch again. But the other way. No way. I am a boomer and there has never been an election so important in my life.

    The stake of the nation. If Biden wins then the bridge will be gapped between generations, and we can fix this mess. If not then the country will be held hostage for decades with a corrupt aged boomer philosophy that doesn't represent the country. These geriatric monsters need to die off and I am sorry to say that because you are in that group even though you are smarter than those dumbfucks.

    Like myself, Bernie, Joe Biden and a few others as well?

    Pretty sweeping and poorly thought out sentence.

    Boomers had a 90% tax on the rich. Ever drive an interstate highway?

    You are still happy because you have three phony illegitimate sock puppets in the SOTUS. All the reason why when we win this election we need to expand the court to 13 and stack it as well as add PR and DC as states so you scumbags can not steal one more election. You are an illegitimate and dying demographic. No party that is despised nationwide should be empowered falsely.
