Before pandemic I thought Trump landslide, if held today I think Biden - possibly in landslide. They haven’t held conventions or debated yet.

I've been following elections for quite a while now, what is considered to be a landslide in the US? 51%, 52% or winning the election AND the popular vote?

Trump. Biden is a really weak candidate and there's still a lot of resentment from Bernie voters like what happened to Hillary in 2016.

I haven't seen that Never Biden sentiment as strongly over the last month or so. Seems to me that most of them have come to the realization that in fact Biden would not be the same as Trump. I think sometimes it is easy to get lost in the hyperbole of the primary, but as of this point, that contempt has largely boiled over. They may not all be happy about voting for Biden, but there is no indication that this Never Biden wing will be very large or impactful.

I guess we'll see in November.



The discussion about electoral college vs popular vote is very interesting, but misleading.
Take Texas for example, why would you waste your time going to vote if you know the democrats will not win. The same in California if you are republican.
In the end a lot of people just dont go voting because you already know the outcome, therefore the popular vote analysis is always distorted.



I'm voting for Biden but Trump is going to win. Partly because Democrats aren't going to show up. Partly because the left is way too extreme at times. People want things to be better but fear radical change. As batshit insane as it's been during Trump's years as president, his fanbase is comfortable. At times, a little too comfortable...

One thing people don't consider (I stole this from Joe Rogan, btw) is who the president will bring in with him. For example, Trump is pro life so he'll likely appoint Supreme Court judges who are pro life. Biden isn't a criminal so his staff will likely be people who aren't criminals.

All we can hope is that one day they'll elect someone who brings democracy to the country.

US seems to be extremely democratic for me, there is usually a balance between Republicans and Democrats in power, you even had a black president for 8 years. Definitely way ahead of so many countries in Latin America for example that call them democracies.

Unless the result is not the one you wish for.

Just curious, what is your opinion on the fact that out of a few really good options, the democrats choose a guy that is a white male, a politician for decades and most of all, seems to be senile? It seems to me a terrible choice, a debate of him vs trump will be a massacre. Personally I believe Tulsi and the Asian guy were very interesting options with real good chances of moving the masses against trump.



I don't know if I have a say in this as a Finnish person, but I think Trump will, unfortunately, win as Biden isn't radical enough to win him.



It might be my military brat upbringing, but I like to think my fellow Americans aren't complete idiots. This and the polling which is pretty drastically in Biden's favor makes me hopeful that Biden will win.
