This election is: vote for Trump or vote against Trump

Who is Biden?

Anyway, the world has seen enough clowning for the last 4 years, next please!

I cannot believe this is such a closely contested election given the chaos Trump had created in the last 4 years.

Always thought it will be a landslide victory for whoever nominated against him.

Yeah! I want to know the people's psyche who vote for a person like Trump. 50% of Americans approve of him. So, is it like they dont know that he is lying, or they know that he is a liar but still vote for him for some other reason.

Exactly right!? His words and speeches are full of OBVIOUS lies, so many of them! Yet why is the 50% of them continue to vote for him? Puzzling! ](*,) Are them under some spells???

I am horribly shocked with the number of supporters Trump has...this is just utterly shocking.

He would have won convincingly if not for Covid, and you can deduce all you want on what that implies.

Covid was the only reason it wasn't a Trump landslide. People must remember that conservatives aren't the ones who burn down cities, incite riots and wear vagina hats during inaugurations. They just come out and vote when it necessary without a lot of fanfare.
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

It isn't rocket science, but Trump/GOP and what they stand for, resonates well with

1. Middle aged and older
2. White americans
3. Middle income and above
4. Conservatives
5. Christians

The racial composition of America is 60-70% white.

The question is why.
That'd be a story for another day.
