US coronavirus death toll now reported at over 60,000. Only a few days ago Trump was claiming the final death toll would be 60,000 not just a gravestone on the way.

Meanwhile, A tight race is shaping up in Texas between former Vice President Joe Biden and President Trump, according to a new poll.
Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has a slim 1-point lead over Trump in Texas, based on a poll from the left-leaning firm Public Policy Polling released Wednesday.

A Democrat hasn’t won a presidential election in Texas since former President Carter in 1976.
Wow! That is interesting Marton... Sadly, the rest of Biden's campaign is fraught with errors. He is clearly suffering from dementia/Alzheimers. I feel badly for him foremost and his family. This party could have chosen better... So sad on all levels!

And how exactly it is it clear that he is "suffering from dementia/Alzheimers?"

He seems very coherent in every recent video that I've seen of him speaking.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

From the man himself today;
Quote:
"I think I’m going to Arizona next week, and we look forward to that," he told reporters during a roundtable with business leaders.

"And I'm going to, I hope, Ohio very soon," he continued. "And we’re going to start to move around, and hopefully in the not too distant future we’ll have some massive rallies and people will be sitting next to each other."

"I hope that we’re going to be able to do some good old fashioned 25,000 person rallies where everyone's going wild because they love our country," he said.
He really does not understand how serious the situation is.

Maybe it's a power move by the Democrats to try and show how unpopular they believe Trump is.

Why they picked him is irrelevant for me. Why he'd agree is something I do not really get. He wouldn't volunteer to be a pawn in some reversed psychology game of Democrats.

Poor old Joe doesn't know what's going on, they just put him in front of the camera and allow him to waffle on and mumble his way through.

Apparently he fell asleep yesterday in the middle of an interview

Maybe we should encourage it. Would kill off a few of his voters before the election....

Doesn't look like he is sleeping.
Doesn't look like he is very enthusiastic about it either.

He closed his eyes when Hillary started droning on about women being 80% of all health care workers. Clearly not interested!

It just demonstrates how far Trump has fallen when Biden is leading him in national polls about the next presidential election.
People are tired of a President who constantly fizzes off like a champagne bottle in multiple directions but see there is nothing left after the foam subsides.

Who do you think it could have been a better candidate, terri?
Please be realistic so anyone else apart from
- Berni Sanders (too Jewish for America? I love him because of that, but but...)
- AOC.....uhm, another Ivanka under a different guise....I might be wrong on this one? I doubt...
- Elisabeth Warren - I won't comment on her as I know very little, but already detest the fact that she pretended she's minority

Any other potential candidate from Dems who could win America's hearts? We're obviously talking about emotions here.

Its worth remembering that the Democrats probably need to win the popular vote by 3 or even 4 points to win the election given that their unfavourable vote distribution.

Hilary beat Trump by 2 points. Gore beat Bush by 0.5 points. So the Republicans have only won the popular vote in the last 30 years.

My prediction is that Trump wins all 2016 states except Arizona but takes Minnesota.

I think Bloomberg would have been good. But he was never going to win the primary with his very centrist views.

Not in the US. Elsewhere he would. It seems that US voters want anything else but bland.

I actually like Tulsi Gabbard and thought that Andrew Yang would have been interesting (although he is not the most inspirational public speaker). For some reason, Gabbard, was not the party elite's favorite (good ole Hilary insinuated that the "Russians" were backing Gabbard!)

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/18/u...on-russia.html

Maybe, both were too conservative for the Party? They certainly were not given much coverage by the media.

Candidates don't fall from the sky.

The fact that somebody is even anywhere close to be considered a candidate, the fact that they managed to work their way up the party ladder, shows that what they say and do resonates within the party. There is a lot of talent spotting going at the grassroots level and promising candidates get pushed forward.

The fact that the Democratic party as a whole failed to spot and forward a good candidate reflects a deeper problem / blindness within the party as a whole.

The Republican party was in exactly the same mess at this time 4 years ago which is what Trump used to his advantage.

It just demonstrates how far the Democrats have fallen when they're struggling to find a candidate who is able to take on Donald 'the pussy grabber' Trump.
