Yeah, Dem/progressive groups need to do some work, instead of letting the Koch network make uncontested appeals to Latin-American voters.

Between all that (unaccounted for?) surplus Inauguration fund plus campaign fund money that has assuredly been grifted away, many gold plated toilets can be purchased.

So, this guy seems like kind of a mega douche, but this is a good thread on the difference between Biden and Hillary's lead in the polls (tl;dr is that a 50-46 lead is much safer than a 46-42 lead)

It’s not really about abortion. It’s about white supremacy. If liberals caved on abortion tomorrow, it would take the powers that be all of a few weeks to come to with a new litmus test issue

Am I making too much of things like this? Probably. But this is exactly the type of thing that will work for Biden on so many levels.

I honestly don't know. For so many Trumpsters seems like being anything other than unabashedly punitive is a weakness. Look at him cower, I want a fighter, etc.

That’s not my takeaway. It’s not like that dude is voting Biden. One of the things that overwhelmingly performs well over party lines is hating politics. Biden’s presenting himself as above politics in a possibly viral video. That’s going to drive some voters who weren’t enthusiastic enough to vote, especially this year. Plus it was a little ballsy, which flies in the face of some feeble puppet hiding in his basement portrayel. Maybe nothing but could resonate.

Reagan was pro gun control. It was a fairly uncontroversial conservative position at the time.

Yep; one of the best examples of the truism that GOP'ers are o.k. with government intervention only when they have personally been touched by the subject matter.
